Juju jumped back into relevancy in week seven and had a solid fantasy outing. In this matchup, Juju should be viewed as a low-end WR3 though.Smith disappointed in week seven, but he came extremely close to hauling in an end zone target. With Davis, Humphries, and Brown all on the field, there's reason to be concerned about Smith's involvement in this offense moving forward, but it's not enough to pull him from your starting lineup. The Titans should look to rectify their mistake from last week and work to get the ball in Jonnu's hands in this plus matchup. Keep plugging Smith into your lineup as a solid mid-range TE1 with upside.

Week 7 was the first one where Smith-Schuster felt like he's someone who could compete for the No. 1 receiving option in the Steelers passing attack, racking up 14 targets against the Titans. Unfortunately, it didn't amount to a huge day as he caught nine passes for 85 yards in a plus matchup where he was playing against a backup cornerback for half the day. I'm not sold this was the turnaround performance that some believe. In fact, he's someone I'd consider benching in Week 8, as he's got a date with what might be the best slot cornerback in the league, Marlon Humphrey. Teams have been willing to test him, as evidenced by the target every 4.8 snaps in coverage. He's allowed just 196 scoreless yards on 37 targets through six games. That amounts to just 5.30 yards per target without a touchdown. Whew. All in all, the Ravens have allowed just five receivers finish better than WR35, and four of them were uber-fast receivers (Terry McLaurin, Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman, and Brandin Cooks). Smith-Schuster should be considered a low-end WR3 this week and one with a low ceiling.In the two games where every wide receiver was healthy, Smith has seen 11 of the team's 73 targets for a relatively weak 15.1 percent target share. That's not ideal, even if Smith has been hyper efficient with his targets. The good news about a potential bounce-back is that teams have targeted their tight ends 25.7 percent of the time against the Bengals this year (3rd-most in NFL), which bodes extremely well for his floor. They've played seven games and have allowed seven top-15 tight end performances, including two of them last week to the Browns tight ends, as Harrison Bryant and David Njoku combined for six catches, 76 yards, and three touchdowns. They've allowed 480 yards to the tight end position, which ranks as the third-most in the NFL. Smith should be back in lineups as a rock-solid TE1 this week who should get back on track.
Derek Lofland

 Smith laid en egg with one reception for nine yards last week against a tough Steelers D. He should rebound against the Bengals 31st ranked fantasy tight end defense.
