New York Jets WR Devin Smith is planning an offseason training program to continue to strengthen his surgically repaired knee.
Huddle Up: Injuries have derailed Smith's career, but the Jets spent a second-round pick on him and will likely give Smith every opportunity to prove his worth once he is healthy. Smith has big-play speed, and he will be worth a late-round flier in deeper formats in 2017.

New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) is being worked into the offense, according to head coach Todd Bowles, but Bowles wouldn't say whether or not Smith will be used against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Smith could be a dangerous deep threat for the Jets once he is up to speed, but he will likely be a boom-or-bust fantasy option best suited for daily games.

New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) said he is unsure when he will return to game action but is ready whenever the team decides to put him out there.
Huddle Up: Smith has game-changing speed, and while he may hit an occasional big play, he isn't likely to show the consistency needed to be a useful fantasy option.

New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) said he has been running and cutting every day, and head coach Todd Bowles said Smith is a few weeks away from practicing in pads.
Huddle Up: Smith has been plagued by injuries since entering the league, and he is nothing more than a lottery ticket in keeper leagues at this point.

New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) is considered doubtful to start the regular season and will begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Smith continues to recover from his torn anterior cruciate ligament and subsequent surgery.
Huddle Up: Health is only one of the issues working against the 2015 second-round pick as the Jets' uncertain QB situation and the two highly productive target monsters (Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker) atop the Jets' depth chart also aren't exactly favorable for the second-year wideout. Keep your Smith expectations to a minimum unless there's a sea change in N.Y.

New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) may not be ready for the start of the regular season as he continues to recover from anterior cruciate ligament surgery.
Huddle Up: The speedy 2015 second-round pick was one of several rookie wide receivers who saw their inaugural seasons cut short by injury, but Smith faces more obstacles than the others given his expected recovery time and the dynamic duo of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker currently heading up the N.Y. WR depth chart.

New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: Unfortunately, injuries have bookended the second-round pick's rookie season, and he'll wind up with only nine receptions for 115 yards and a TD on 28 targets.

New York Jets WR Devin Smith played 83 percent of the offensive snaps in his Week 3 debut and played more snaps than WR Eric Decker (52 to 46) in Week 4 in London against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Keep in mind that the Jets jumped out to a big lead in London, affording Decker some rest after his recent health issues, and while the Jets like the progress of their second-round pick, it's going to be hard for him to find consistent fantasy relevance if Decker and Brandon Marshall and Decker stay healthy in the Jets' run-centric attack.

New York Jets WR Devin Smith was on the field for 64 offensive snaps during the team's Week 3 game and caught three passes for 39 yards on nine targets.
Huddle Up: Smith saw more playing time with Eric Decker out. He's a player to monitor but Smith doesn't have fantasy value in re-draft leagues once Decker returns.

New York Jets rookie WR Devin Smith (ribs) will be a game-time decision in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, Sept. 21, according to head coach Todd Bowles.
Huddle Up: The Jets' second-round pick has practiced all week and has progressed faster than expected after suffering broken ribs early in training camp. Even if he does play, though, he's buried behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker on the Jets' depth chart and isn't a fantasy consideration at the moment outside of deep leagues.
