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.

Jonnu Smith fails to see a pass in win on Sunday

Jonnu Smith did not get targeted on Sunday as the Titans beat the Colts by a 45-26 score in Week 12 action.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy owners are disappointed on Sunday as Ryan Tannehill did not look for Smith all day as the team focused on the run game. The was the first time all year that the 25-year-old failed to catch a pass. Smith is not worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.
