Patriots TE Jonnu Smith is soaking up all the reps he can get in OTAs after missing time last offseason. “My [2021 offseason] was choppy and I missed some quality time here. I recognize how valuable that time is. I’m here to take advantage of that," Smith said Monday. After inking a 4-year, $50 million deal with New England last year, Smith's 2021 campaign was a disaster. He turns just 27 in August, though, and is at least worth keeping an eye on this summer.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) is active for tonight's game vs. the Falcons. He's not a fantasy option but does put a small dent in TE Hunter Henry's profile.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Falcons. He's not a fantasy option, but his absence would be a boost for TE Hunter Henry.

11:33am EST 11/14/21

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) is inactive for today's game vs. the Browns. Hopefully you weren't planning on using him. Smith's absence could mean an extra target or 2 for TE Hunter Henry.

2:44pm EDT 10/31/21

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Chargers. He was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable, so don’t expect him to be at 100% today.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Chargers. Smith shouldn’t be in your Week 8 fantasy plans, but his absence would be a boost to TE Hunter Henry.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. That seemingly puts him on track to play vs. the Chargers this weekend. Smith seemed to be a big part of New England's Week 7 game plan, racking up 5 targets and a carry before exiting in the 1st half. But he still can't be trusted in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith injured his shoulder in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Jets and did not return. We'll look for an update on his status.

11:09am EDT 9/19/21

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He was added to the injury report on Thursday, limited in the final 2 practices of the week and listed as questionable. So Smith carries elevated risk in fantasy lineups today.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Jets. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited in the final 2 practices of the week. Smith ran a route on just 45% of pass plays in the opener, so he was a shaky fantasy play even before this injury. TE Hunter Henry’s Week 2 projection will get a big boost if Smith is out.

The Patriots added TE Jonnu Smith to the injury report Thursday. He was limited by a hip issue. We'll see whether that's something to worry about heading into Sunday's visit to the Jets.

The Patriots have surprisingly released QB Cam Newton, according to multiple reports. We wouldn't have been shocked to see the team name Mac Jones its Week 1 starter, but we certainly did not foresee New England unloading Newton completely. Jones graded out among the top passers across the league in preseason, according to Pro Football Focus. His ascension should be good news for the fantasy outlooks for basically everyone in the New England offense. It signals a more traditional scheme as opposed to last year's run-heavy approach. It returns lead status near the goal line to Damien Harris and the RBs. And it should mean more -- and more accurate -- targets for all pass-catchers. We're not overly interested in Jones as a fantasy football prospect, but Jakobi Meyers, Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry, Nelson Agholor and James White all gain some late-round appeal. RB Damien Harris also gets a bump. Check out the updated projections for the Patriots.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) was a full participant in Monday's practice, according to NESN's Zack Cox. Smith was sidelined for a week, but we can now cross him off the list of injured played to worry about.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith sprained his left ankle in Sunday’s practice. ESPN’s Mike Reiss reports that it’s a low-ankle sprain. “No firm timetable on his return, but based on the initial diagnosis, it isn’t considered a serious injury,” Reiss says. We’ll see how long Smith sits. Hunter Henry, of course, is already out with a shoulder injury. So New England suddenly looks thin — for the moment — at TE. That means opportunity for a WR corps without much separation so far.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Patriots TE Hunter Henry is expected to miss "a couple of weeks" with his shoulder injury. Schefter adds, though, that it's "not serious." We'll see whether any more info comes out on the injury itself. But it's the Patriots, so don't hold your breath. Henry's absence can only help the opportunity for TE Jonnu Smith.

According to Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald, Patriots TE Jonnu Smith is “on the short list of top-performing Patriots through 10 days of training camp.” Smith has bought into a versatile role with the Pats. “I’m just excited to be able to use my ability to its fullest potential. Even touch some areas where maybe I do some things I’ve never done before,” he said. "Kind of scratch the surface here and see what lies beneath.” Smith’s ability to play multiple spots makes the addition of Hunter Henry less worrisome. The former Titan is currently being drafted at a very fair TE15 in FFPC best balls.

After signing TE Jonnu Smith, WR Nelson Agholor and WR Kendrick Bourne on the 1st day of free agency, the Patriots kicked off Day 2 by inking TE Hunter Henry to a 3-year, $37.5 million deal with $25 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Henry's $12.5 million average annual salary is identical to Jonnu Smith's -- although Smith got a 4-year deal. New England suddenly has the league's top TE tandem after trotting out a completely unforgettable group last year. The easy comparison here will be to Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, who were both top 14 PPR TEs in 2010 and top 3 in 2011. That, of course, came with Tom Brady slinging the rock. Last year's Patriots ranked 31st in pass rate, 31st in pass attempts and 30th in pass yards. HC Bill Belichick is clearly gearing up to chuck it more in 2021, but it's tough to imagine there being enough to go around for both Henry and Smith to post TE1 numbers.

The Patriots have agreed to a 4-year deal with TE Jonnu Smith, agent Drew Rosenhaus tells ESPN. The pact includes $50 million, with $31.25 million guaranteed. Smith flashed intriguing athleticism and receiving ability across 3 seasons with the Titans. He has yet to eclipse 41 receptions or reach 450 receiving yards in a season, though. Smith saw particularly odd usage with last year, garnering just 12 more targets for the season than teammate Anthony Firkser. The size of this contract suggests New England plans to feature him more as a receiver. And a roster that saw only WR Jakobi Meyers reach 50 receptions last season presents plenty of opportunity for Smith. The TE will turn just 26 this August and looks like a high-upside fantasy prospect going forward. His arrival is bad news if you were hoping for a Year 2 breakout from TE Devin Asiasi.

The forecast for tonight's Titans-Packers game calls for temperatures in the low 30s with snow and winds of 10-15 mph with gusts of 25-30 mph. Those are less-than-ideal conditions for the passing games, but we're still expecting plenty of points in this one. The game still has a big 53.5-point over/under. We'd stick with all the regulars from these teams in fantasy lineups.

Titans TE Jonnu Smith (knee) isn't listed on the final injury report and is set to return for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. Smith smoked Jacksonville for a 4-84-2 line back in Week 2 but rolls into the rematch with 2 or fewer catches in 6 of his last 7 games. He can only be considered a boom/bust TE2.
