Smith has been entrenched as a playmaking WR2 in fantasy football over the last two seasons (WR20, WR14). Smith should run it back again this year with similar production. Last year, he was 21st in receiving yards per game and 29th in first read share while some of his deeper metrics sagged. Smith saw his FD/RR ranking drop to 39th, and his YPRR sat at only 33rd (minimum 50 targets). While this is concerning, the talent didn't disappear for Smith. Philly's offense was broken last year as rudimentary play calling held the entire show back from its potential. Smith and Metcalf go in the same range of drafts, and each player feels like a safe bet with some upside in 2024.

DeVonta Smith has showcased his ability to thrive in the absence of key teammates like A.J. Brown or Dallas Goedert over the past two seasons. During Weeks 11-18 this season, he ranked as WR16, averaging 13.6 points per game, demonstrating backend fantasy WR1 potential. However, prior to Week 11, he was WR25 overall with 10.9 points per game. Smith's talent is evident, but for him to reach fantasy WR1 status, others in the Eagles passing game may need to scale back their production. Overall, he finished the year 20th in points per game (12.2) with a 24% target share.
