Summary

Smith benefited from a Devonta Freeman injury in 2018 for a quality role as a Day 3 rookie. Smith was up and down as a performer, however, with half his games averaging less than 3.0 yards-per-carry and a mere 5.6 yards-per-reception for the season. Smith is undersized and Atlanta has Freeman returning from injury and a prototypically-sized Day 3 back in Qadree Ollison added to the depth chart of note who could be the volume play if Freeman misses time again in 2019.
