WR - NO
Week 17 Outlook
Tre'Quan Smith hauled in all three of his targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Divisional Round loss to the Bucs.
Tre'Quan Smith has slowly taken over as the lead wide receiver in New Orleans, and his nine targets more than double Michael Thomas's total, while the latter failed to catch a single ball thrown his way. With Drew Brees set to retire, Smith's value will be tough to project heading into the 2021 season. He will likely be touted as a sleeper throughout the offseason and his ADP is set to rise.
The Saints placed WR Tre'Quan Smith (ankle) on injured reserve.
This means that Smith will be sidelined for at least three games, which include their playoff opener. Marquez Callaway is coming off IR and should slot in as New Orleans' No. 2 wideout behind Emmanuel Sanders.
Saints’ WR Tre'Quan Smith (ankle) didn’t participate in Tuesday’s estimated practice report.
Smith exited Week 15’s loss to the Chiefs with an ankle injury. He has been unable to practice this week, leaving his status for Week 16’s contest against the Vikings in question. Smith will have two more days to practice in some fashion before Friday’s contest. If Smith is unable to suit up, Tommylee Lewis and Juwan Johnson would handle WR2 duties for the Saints on Friday.
Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith caught 1-of-2 targets for a 25 yard gain in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.
Smith left the game with an ankle injury following his lone reception. If Smith is good to go in Week 16 against the Vikings, he should be in your fantasy lineup getting one of the worst secondaries in the NFL since Michael Thomas is shut down until the playoffs.
Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith caught 3-of-6 targets for 60 yards in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Eagles.
Smith is one of the biggest boom or bust wideouts in fantasy. Normally, if he does not score, he does not return fantasy value. Smith gets Kansas City in Week 15.
