Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Smith benefited from an injury-riddled year from Michael Thomas. The former scored 4 times, adding career-highs in catches (34) and yards (448).
  • In Thomas’ 7 absences, Smith posted per-game averages of 4.7 targets, 3.6 catches, 44.5 yards and .29 TDs. Not exactly breakout numbers.
  • In the postseason, he tallied 3-85-2 against Tampa Bay, catching a 56-yard TD from potential Week 1 starter Jameis Winston.
  • Smith was used as a short-range target for Drew Brees for the 2nd-straight season. He’s posted a 9.6-yard average depth of target in 2 straight seasons.
  • Smith dropped 4 balls, giving him a bloated drop rate of 10.5%. He was sub-7% in 2018 and 2019.
  • He missed Weeks 16-17 and the Wild Card Round with an ankle injury. This came after an 11-game 2019 (ankle).
  • Emmanuel Sanders departed in free agency. A chunk of the 82 targets he leaves behind will shift to Smith.
  • Smith's main competition for the #2 role will come from 2nd-year UDFA Marquez Callaway. He’s an intriguing athlete standing 6’1, 205 pounds, but his college production (92-1,646-13 across 4 years) wasn’t great at Tennessee.
  • 2021 is a contract year for Smith. His 4th season looks like a make-or-break one if he wants to stick as a starter.
  • Winston will battle Taysom Hill for the Week 1 starting job. Hill started 4 games in place of Drew Brees last year. But Ian Rapoport of NFL Network believes Winston is the favorite to start entering the summer.
  • Smith would likely benefit if Winston is indeed the starter, as the former Buc boasts more arm strength (and a more aggressive game) than Hill.
  • The Saints figure to remain balanced on offense. Running out a solid defense, New Orleans ranked 28th in pass rate a year ago. In other words: It’s imperative Smith grabs the #2 role.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Smith heads into the summer as the favorite to start alongside Michael Thomas. The 27-year-old has the size and speed to thrive in a deep role, but he’ll need whoever wins the starting QB job to cooperate.

Even then, Smith looks like a fringe #3 option behind Thomas and Alvin Kamara. Adam Trautman is certainly a breakout candidate in year 2.

For summer drafts, Smith is just a late-round option with the potential to supply several starting weeks.

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.

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.
