DeVonta Smith News
Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver DeVonta Smith was targeted seven times in Week 2 but only made two catches, gaining just 16 yards. Smith led the team with his seven targets and actually ended up tied for the team lead with the two catches. It was a rough game for the Eagles offense in general, but especially for the passing game. Smith was still clearly utilized as the team's WR1 though, so he should have some much bigger fantasy performances coming up, perhaps in Week 3's Monday Night Football contest against the Dallas Cowboys.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver DeVonta Smith is an exciting choice for fantasy lineups in Week 2. The Eagles will take on the San Francisco 49ers, who will have a much better defensive secondary than the Atlanta Falcons did in Week 1 when Smith debuted with six catches for 71 yards and a touchdown. He was targeted eight times and likely would have seen even more chances if the Eagles hadn't been nursing a huge lead for the entire second half. Smith clearly played as the top receiving option for quarterback Jalen Hurts, and should be a solid WR3 with plenty of upside in Week 2.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver DeVonta Smith scored his first NFL touchdown in a Week 1 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Smith operated as the clear WR1 in his first NFL game, drawing a team-leading eight targets, catching six passes for 71 yards and a score. His touchdown came on an 18-yard pass from quarterback Jalen Hurts in the first quarter. Smith was the first read for Hurts and most plays, and he could have some monster games ahead of him if the play calling follows this pattern for the rest of the season. The rookie is a solid WR2 as long as the Philly offense keeps clicking.
It's rare that a wide receiver gets drafted and immediately steps into a WR1 role. That's exactly what Heisman-winner DeVonta Smith will be during his rookie season in Philadelphia. Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson are gone, and it's only a matter...
