The Colts have allowed only 1 receiving and 1 rushing touchdown to tight ends this year, Smith is a low-upside TE2 that is only staying fantasy relevant thanks to 3 touchdowns in his last 3 games.

After scoring three touchdowns over the last three weeks, Smith is back as a top-five tight end. The good news? He's seen six targets in each of the last two games. The bad news? He hasn't topped 32 yards since back in Week 5. He's turned into a touchdown-or-bust tight end, but fortunately, he's scored eight total touchdowns this year. Teams have chosen to target their tight ends 22.9 percent of the time against the Colts, which ranks as the fifth-highest percentage in the league. Despite that high percentage, they allowed the first receiving touchdown to a tight end just last week. The 1.19 PPR points per target they've allowed to tight ends is the second-lowest number in football to only the Steelers. Football Outsiders' DVOA metric has them as the sixth-toughest matchup for tight ends. Smith was targeted six times against them in their last meeting that only netted two catches for 14 yards, but he did score a rushing touchdown, salvaging his fantasy day. Considering the Colts have allowed just 5.19 yards per target and one touchdown on 74 targets to the position, it's probably not wise to bet on Smith as anything more than a middling TE2 this week.
