What You Need to Know:

  • Last offseason, the Pats signed Smith to a 4-year deal worth $50 million ($31.2 million guaranteed).
  • What followed was a disastrous debut. Smith set 2-year lows in targets (43), catches (28) and yards (294). He scored only once.
  • Jonnu missed 1 game with a shoulder injury.
  • His 8.5% target share ranked a pathetic 6th on the team. Fellow FA add Hunter Henry saw 14.3% in 1 extra game (17 vs. 16 for Smith).
  • 9 of Smith’s 28 catches came over the first 2 weeks (vs. Miami, at Jets).
  • His role really tailed off late. He never ran more than 12 pass routes in a game from Week 9 on. Smith caught 0 or 1 pass in 6 of his final 7 games.
  • Promising young QB Mac Jones returns for year 2. But the team bolstered the WR corps with DeVante Parker and Round 2 pick Tyquan Thornton.
  • Hunter Henry returns after a solid Patriots debut. He projects as the lead receiving TE once again.
  • The Pats moved on from FB Jakob Johnson, and there’s some chatter that his loss could mean more snaps for Smith.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

A TE1 hopeful last year, Smith instead performed like 1 of the biggest busts at the position.

His outlook simply didn’t improve over the offseason. So we’re left hoping the team can better utilize him in year 2 in the system.

Most likely, it’ll take a Hunter Henry injury to get Smith anywhere near fantasy lineups. Even with a dirt cheap ADP, Smith should go undrafted outside of 28-round FFPC leagues.

Smith soaking up offseason reps

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.
