DeVonta Smith Week 2 Outlook - 49ers at Eagles

By Kyle Yates (FantasyPros), Fri, Sep 17th 2021, 3:25pm EDT

Welcome to the NFL, Devonta Smith! Smith looked absolutely fantastic in week one and he torched the Falcons secondary continuously throughout the game. He made his presence known by going for 6-71-1 on eight targets and there's the possibility he could have had a lot more if the game had been closer in the second half. Looking at week two, the 49ers are reeling after the loss of Jason Verrett with a torn ACL and their CB depth is suddenly very shaky. Hurts might not be as productive of a passer in week two, but Smith should easily see a minimum of six targets in this game and that automatically puts him in the WR3 conversation. He can be started with confidence this week.
