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.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith caught his only target for 15 yards in a 20-14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in the divisional round Sunday, Jan. 13.
Huddle Up: Smith has flashed big-play ability this year, but now that Ted Ginn Jr. is back and healthy, he doesn't see enough volume to warrant a flier from fantasy owners participating in playoff contests. Smith has been held to 30 yards or less in his last six games, catching one pass or less four times in that stretch.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith posted three grabs for 30 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers on four targets.
Huddle Up: Smith was seeing added work with Ted Ginn Jr. resting and getting ready for the playoffs. The rookie finished with 28 catches, 427 yards and five touchdowns in the regular season and he will be a nice sleeper heading into the 2019 campaign.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith managed just one catch for 11 yards on his only target in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Smith saw his playing time and targets dry up with Ted Ginn Jr. back from a lengthy absence. While he stunk this week from a fantasy perspective, he might be used frequently in Week 17. The Saints locked up the No. 1 seed in the playoffs, but Smith could play more if the team elects to rest guys like Michael Thomas, perhaps Ginn, etc. Watch the news closely this week.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith is likely to be impacted by the return of WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) in the Week 16 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Smith has played outside, which is where Ginn is expected to be slotted upon his return. Neither Smith nor Ginn are recommended fantasy options at this critical juncture of the season.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith managed just two catches for 15 yards on four targets in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers on Monday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Smith exploded for 157 yards and a touchdown on 10 grabs back on Nov. 18 and looked like a fantasy star in the making. Then, the past two games he was blanked with just one target each, and then this egg laying. He simply cannot be trusted at this juncture of the fantasy season, even if it is tempting to use him in Week 16 in a potential shootout against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
