DeVonta Smith Week 7 Outlook - Eagles at Raiders

By Kyle Yates (FantasyPros), Wed, Oct 20th 2021, 6:13pm EDT

Smith obviously has the talent to be a consistent fantasy asset, but he's going to be inconsistent each week due to the QB play. With Hurts struggling to move the offense as a passer, Smith's fantasy stock is going to live and die by what version of Hurts we see on the field any given week. There are going to be some games where Hurts puts together a solid outing - like in week four against Kansas City - and that is going to mean a big performance from Smith as this team's WR1. However, we're going to have to be prepared for the fact that Hurts may only throw for 115 yards like he did in week six against the Bucs and Smith could disappoint. Moving forward, Smith should remain in starting lineups. However, we simply have to view him as a mid-range/low-end WR3 every single week due to his QB. He comes with a massive range of outcomes every single game and there's simply no predicting what we're going to get out of him.
