DeVonta Smith Fantasy Football Outlook (2021)

By Dan Harris (FantasyPros), Thu, Jul 15th 2021, 10:27pm EDT

I'm not breaking any news when I say that Smith is incredibly talented but there are concerns about his size. The concerns are warranted - Smith's frame is nearly unprecedented, and even everyone's favorite comp for him - Marvin Harrison - was a good 10 pounds heavier. But if you let injury concerns scare you off a late-round receiver with Smith's upside in a redraft league, then you're just playing fantasy wrong. Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and potentially Zach Ertz are gone in this offense, and Nick Sirianni has had an entire offseason to figure out how best to get Smith involved. Jalen Hurts's rushing ability will likely put a cap on his pass attempts and, with it, Smith's targets. But given his price, this is a situation in which you should take the gamble on an immensely talented wide receiver with little competition for targets.
