2019 Fantasy Outlook
Smith was drafted in the third round of the 2017 draft as a highly athletic tight end. He combined that with strong college production at Florida Atlantic. A pro breakout seemed possible in 2018 after Delanie Walker (ankle) went down for the season in the first game of the campaign, but Smith hardly built on his rookie season numbers by catching 20 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns. With Walker expected to return healthy for the 2019 season and the Titans' adding weapons to their passing attack this offseason, Smith will face an uphill battle to break out despite his untapped upside.

Snags four passes in win

November 10, 2019
Smith caught four of six targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 35-32 win over the Chiefs.
ANALYSIS
The third-year tight end managed to lead the Titans in targets during Sunday's upset and has 21 in his past four games. Smith looks as though he has developed a rapport with new quarterback Ryan Tannehill, but it's hard to tell how much of that is an authentic connection and how much of that is Delanie Walker's (ankle) absence in all four of Tannehill's starts. Though Walker's timetable for return is unclear, Smith figures to see a drop in targets once the veteran returns. In the meantime, the Titans will face off against a Jaguars team that held Smith to 20 yards on two catches as a backup in Week 3, following next week's bye.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Ironically drawing Delanie Walker comparisons during the pre-draft process in 2017, Smith was ultimately selected by Tennessee in the third round of the draft to play second-fiddle to the 13-year vet. The Florida State product ended up seeing consistent playing time in that role, faring well as both a blocker and receiver. However, with Walker still heading the depth chart, there doesn't appear to be much room for growth for Smith in 2018. That could change if Walker deals with any injuries, but Smith's mentor hasn't missed more than one game in any of his past seven seasons.
Smith is expected to work as the No. 2 tight end behind Delanie Walker from the get-go, as Anthony Fasano's departure leaves just 2014 second-round bust Jace Amaro and blocking specialist Phillip Supernaw to challenge him for that spot. The rookie third-rounder out of Florida International is already a more complete player than either of those options, and is positioned to make an immediate impact for a team that used multiple tight end formations at an above-average clip last season.
