It’s worth noting that Smith is riding some positive momentum with 15 receptions on 16 targets, 131 receiving yards, and a touchdown combined in his last two games.
Start or sit in Week 8?
Start Smith in Week 8. This is a great matchup against the Steelers, who have allowed the second-most fantasy points to receivers this season. Pittsburgh doesn’t have much of a pass rush with T.J. Watt sidelined, and Smith could benefit as a viable deep threat. Go ahead and look toward the Eagles WR as a legitimate WR2 in this game.
