Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Here's the good news, folks. Smith was on the field for 62% of the snaps in week five! The bad news is that he ran just six receiving routes. Yes, you read that correctly. With four offensive line starters out last week against Houston, Smith was asked to stay in and block a heavy amount, which killed his fantasy output. While it's baffling why the Patriots paid Smith $50 million to not be used as a receiving threat in this offense, we have to face the reality of the situation and recognize that it's simply unlikely to change. Smith is now droppable in redraft leagues if there's a better option available.Hooper played 72% of the offensive snaps for the Browns in week five and he finished with a staggering zero targets. At this point, Hooper should be on your league's waiver wire if he isn't already.
Derek Lofland

Smith has been a Top-15 TE the last two weeks and he is a streaming option against the Cowboys 24th ranked fantasy tight end defense.
