This timeshare with the Titans gets uglier by the week, as the tight ends combined to run 24 routes last week. Smith 11, MyCole Pruitt 7, Anthony Firkser 6. It was Smith who came out with the most targets (4) while scoring a touchdown. We still can't ignore the fact that he's seen just six targets over the last three weeks combined and that his 11 routes run ranked outside the top 40 tight ends last week. The Texans hadn't been a team to target with tight ends, though last week's performance may make some question that, as they allowed the duo of Noah Fant and Jeff Heuerman to combine for 5/121/2 on just five targets. Prior to that, they'd allowed just three tight ends to hit double-digit PPR points. You can't trust Smith based on a touchdown he caught last week; there's just not enough to justify starting him here.
