Fantasy Analysis
Week 6 Projections
With Corey Davis parked on the COVID-19 List, the must-start Smith operated as the undisputed second receiving option during the Titans' home win over the Buffalo Bills Tuesday night. Smith drew seven targets versus the Bills (only A.J. Brown topped him with nine targets), compiling five grabs for 40 yards and two touchdowns. Smith has scored five times in four games played but has cleared 62 receiving yards in a contest only once. Expect Smith's heavy usage to continue. The Houston Texans are ranked just 15th in tight end fantasy points allowed, and they gave up scores to Travis Kelce (Chiefs) and Eric Ebron (Steelers) earlier this season.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 33 Yards, 1 TD.

Season Projections
The stage was set for him to breakout at the midpoint of last season when Delanie Walker (free agent) went down with an ankle injury and the Titans made a desperation switch from struggling Marcus Mariota (Raiders) to NFL Comeback Player of the Year Ryan Tannehill, but Smith blew his big chance. He closed out 2019 as the fantasy TE17/non-PPR and as the fantasy TE19/PPR but compiled sporadic and usually soft weekly stats while playing 70.8 percent of Tennessee's offensive snaps. During Tannehill's 10 regular-season starts, Smith caught three touchdown passes, but he averaged just 3.6 targets, 2.9 receptions and 34.2 receiving yards per outing. He also lost two touchdown catches to the Anthony Firkser/MyCole Pruitt combo platter. While Smith, heading into his fourth season, is faster than most tight ends around the league (last season he lined up as a tailback and ripped off a 57-yard run), his hands and chemistry with Tannehill both remain suspect. If Tennessee commits to getting the ball to Smith consistently, he could sniff the top 15. Last season, they occasionally used him on screens and as a ball carrier, but it yielded little fantasy success. Nevertheless, the breakout door is open for Smith again. Will he walk through this time?

Rushing: 3 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 27 Receptions, 331 Yards, 7 TD.
