New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith posted five receptions for 86 yards on seven targets in Week 2 against the Las Vegas Raiders, leading all wide receivers in yardage.
Huddle Up: Smith stepped up with Michael Thomas sidelined due to injury. In fact, he was the only effective wideout for Drew Brees in this one. If Thomas is sidelined again in Week 3, Smith is worth a look as a WR4 or flex fantasy option on Sunday Night Football against the Green Bay Packers.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith id going to have a big 2020 season, according to QB Drew Brees Thursday, Aug. 27. 'Smith is a guy who I think is ready to really blossom and just explode in this offense,' Brees said.
Huddle Up: Smith figures to be the Saints' No. 3 receiver behind Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. The third-round pick of the 2018 NFL Draft caught 18 of just 25 targets for 234 yards and five touchdowns over 11 games last season. A full year of Brees under center should help him surpass his 427-yard rookie season. He's a viable depth option widely available at the end of drafts.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith is 'an important part' of the team's offensive plans, according to head coach Sean Payton.
Huddle Up: Smith has flashed some potential as a deep threat in his first two seasons, but after the Saints added Emmanuel Sanders this offseason, Payton's comments feel a bit like lip service. Smith doesn't need to be rostered going into the season.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith posted just one catch in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts but it was good for a 21-yard touchdown.
Huddle Up: Smith hasn't posted big numbers, but he does have scores in back-to-back games, and three of the past four outings. He'll look to keep up the scoring ways in Week 16 at Tennessee, but he remains useful only in deeper fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith snagged two of his four targets for 29 yards and a touchdown vs. the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: Smith missed so much time this year with ankle injury and was set back because of it. He how has scores in two of his last three but has no more than a pair of catches in any of the last five appearances. That kind of involvement is of no use in fantasy playoff lineups.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (ankle) suffered an ankle injury Sunday, Sept. 15, and will undergo X-rays on his ankle.
Huddle Up: Smith caught all three of his targets for 49 yards before departing and was clearly the No. 2 option outside behind Michael Thomas. Look for an update on Smith's condition before considering a move.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (undisclosed) left the Week 2 game against the Los Angeles Rams due to an undisclosed injury and he walked off to the locker room.
Huddle Up: Smith had a 28-yard reception right before his injury, but he was unable to score like he did in Week 1. When healthy Smith remains more of a WR5/6 in most fantasy leagues and even that might be a stretch if Drew Brees is forced to miss time due to his hand injury.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith posted two grabs for 26 yards and a touchdown on his two targets in Week 1 against the Houston Texans on Monday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Smith managed to find the end zone, which is nice, but with Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn, Alvin Kamara and Jared Cook ahead of him in the pecking order for targets, Smith will simply be fighting for fantasy crumbs. He is more of a depth player worth keeping around in case someone gets injured and he is given more responsibilities. Smith has a ton of upside, but his fantasy ceiling is limited at the moment.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith is set to take a big step forward this offseason, according to head coach Sean Payton.
Huddle Up: Smith flashed some big-play ability as a rookie, albeit on a limited basis. It remains to be seen if he can become a steady weapon in the passing attack, but he's worth grabbing in the later rounds to find out.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith posted one catch for just 10 yards on two targets in the NFC Championship Game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Smith stepped up and had a giant game against the Philadelphia Eagles in the regular season, showing his speed and good hands. However, with Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. healthy, he was an afterthought in the offense. Perhaps in 2019 if he can rise to No. 2 status behind Thomas he'll be a solid fantasy sleeper, but it all depends on if Ginn is back, offseason personnel moves and the draft.
