Tre'Quan Smith Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Broncos placed WR Brandon Johnson (hamstring) on IR. Johnson has seemingly been standing in the way of a full-time role for WR Marvin Mims. But before you get too excited about the rookie, we need to tell you that Denver elevated WR Tre'Quan Smith from the practice squad in a corresponding move. Smith, of course, has a history with HC Sean Payton from their New Orleans days. We'll keep a close eye on Mims' usage vs. the Chiefs on Sunday, but he'd still be a total flier in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Saints WRs Rashid Shaheed and Tre'Quan Smith left Saturday's practice early with groin injuries, according to Nick Underhill of We'll see about the severity of each issue, but it seems particularly noteworthy for Shaheed. He's not only expected to run ahead of Smith on the depth chart, but Shaheed also missed June minicamp with what was deemed a minor groin injury. Even if this instance also proves minor, we haven't been excited about Shaheed's 2023 fantasy football outlook. He'll need an injury to Chris Olave or Michael Thomas to pull him up our WR rankings.

Saints WR Marquez Callaway is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Steelers. He's the odd man out with WR Jarvis Landry back. Landry joins Chris Olave and Tre'Quan Smith as New Orleans' top 3 WRs.

Saints WR Jarvis Landry (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Ravens. He was limited in practice all week but will miss his 5th straight game. Chris Olave, Marquez Callaway and Tre'Quan Smith will again operate as New Orleans' top 3 WRs.

Saints WRs Michael Thomas (foot) and Jarvis Landry (ankle) are out for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. HC Dennis Allen said Friday that there's no timetable for their returns, but that he does expect both guys to play again this season. WR Chris Olave should continue to dominate targets this weekend, with Marquez Callaway and Tre'Quan Smith as New Orleans' #2 and #3 WRs.

Saints WRs Michael Thomas (foot) and Jarvis Landry (ankle) remained sidelined on Tuesday. Neither guy is expected to play vs. the Cardinals on Thursday night, leaving Chris Olave, Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway as New Orleans' top 3 WRs.

Saints WR Chris Olave (concussion) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so unless he suffered a setback, he should return for Week 7. With WRs Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry also out, New Orleans is down to WRs Tre’Quan Smith, Marquez Callaway and Keith Kirkwood. Expect a run-heavy game plan with plenty of Taysom Hill.

Saints WR Jarvis Landry (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. With WR Michael Thomas also out, New Orleans is down to WRs Chris Olave, Marquez Callaway, Tre’Quan Smith and Deonte Harty.

Saints QB Andy Dalton completed 20 of 28 passes (71.4%) for 236 yards (8.4 yards per attempt) and 1 TD in Sunday's narrow loss to the Vikings in London. He spread the targets around, with WR Chris Olave drawing a team-high 7, WR Marquez Callaway getting 6, TE Juwan Johnson seeing 4 and no one else topping 3. Olave's 4 receptions and 67 yards led the team. Four other Saints caught 3 balls. Jarvis Landry came away with a mere 2 catches for 7 yards on 2 targets. We'll see about QB Jameis Winston's status for the Week 5 home date with Seattle.

Saints WR Chris Olave led the team in targets (13), receptions (9) and receiving yards (147) in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. The rookie claimed 31.7% target share in a game that both Michael Thomas (foot) and Jarvis Landry (ankle) left early. WR Tre'Quan Smith added a 4-105 receiving line on 5 targets. We'll see about the severity of the injuries, but Olave is looking like a weekly starter for 3-WR fantasy football leagues.

WR Tre'Quan Smith has re-signed with the Saints on a 2-year deal. It has a base value of $6 million with another $4.5 million available via incentives, according to ESPN's Field Yates. Smith has flashed on occasion but has yet to hit 500 receiving yards through 4 NFL seasons. He'll battle Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harty for targets behind Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara this year.

Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith (chest) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Panthers. Hopefully you weren’t planning to use him in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the new ankle injury for Saints WR Michael Thomas will keep him out for the rest of the season. New Orleans reportedly tried to trade for receiving help before Tuesday's deadline but couldn't get anything done. That leaves Marquez Callaway, Tre'Quan Smith and Deonte Harris as the top WRs for QB Taysom Hill going forward. Expect New Orleans to also lean heavily on Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram -- both in the run game and as pass-catchers (well, Kamara, at least, on that front).

Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring) has been designated to return from IR. He's been out since hurting his hamstring a few days before the season opener. He'll return to practice this week, although it's unclear if he'll play vs. the Seahawks on Monday night. Smith isn't worth grabbing off the waiver wire now, especially with WR Michael Thomas expected back within the next few weeks.

Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith is out for Sunday's game against the Packers after hurting his hamstring in practice this week. With WR Michael Thomas also out, New Orleans is down to WRs Marquez Callaway, Deonte Harris, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Chris Hogan. Callaway should dominate targets and is a nice Week 1 fantasy play.

Update: Smith has been placed on IR, so he's out for at least the season's first 3 weeks.

Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. He missed much of August with a leg injury but will be available for Sunday's opener vs. the Packers. Smith should join Marquez Callaway as New Orleans' top 2 WRs -- but we'd try not to use Smith in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

QB Jameis Winston has been named the Saints' starter, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Winston and QB Taysom Hill seemed to play to a draw in training camp, but Winston won this job with his 123-yard, 2-TD performance in Monday night's preseason game vs. Jacksonville. Having Winston under center is good news for RB Alvin Kamara and New Orleans' WRs. But Winston himself isn't a very attractive fantasy option. He'll be working with an underwhelming group of pass catchers until WR Michael Thomas returns. And Hill still figures to steal snaps, especially in the red zone.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler confirms that Saints QB Jameis Winston "appears well-positioned to start opening day vs. Green Bay." HC Sean Payton has yet to officially name a starter, but it'd be a surprise if it wasn't Winston after his impressive showing in the 2nd preseason game. "Winston is receiving significant locker-room support this week for the Saints starting QB job, with many teammates treating him as if he is the starter or giving indications he will get the job," Fowler adds. If you're drafting this weekend, assume Winston is the Saints' starter. He's not an appealing fantasy option -- but Winston being under center is good news for RB Alvin Kamara and the rest of New Orleans' skill guys.

Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (leg) returned to practice on Tuesday. He ended up missing about 2 weeks. WR Marquez Callaway impressed in Smith's absence, but we're curious to see how things shake out between those 2 now over the next few weeks.

Per beat writer Nick Underhill, Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith has been out of practice since Tuesday with an apparent leg injury. HC Sean Payton downplayed the injury, but Smith’s absence is a missed opportunity with Michael Thomas sidelined. In his absence, more reps have gone to guys like Deonte Harris, Marquez Callaway and Lil’Jordan Humphrey. Harris is likely to miss the first 2 games following a July DUI.
