ATL RB Ito Smith - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 15 vs. Arizona Cardinals
Ito Smith rushed 11 times for 60 yards and caught three-of-four targets for 14 yards in the Falcons’ Week 14 loss to the Packers. He has now out-touched Tevin Coleman in back-to-back weeks. Coleman is a free agent at the end of the season and with Devonta Freeman under contract for big money next season, there’s a good chance the Falcons will not re-sign Coleman. Thus, perhaps Smith will continue to out-touch Coleman moving forward as Atlanta gets a closer look at the rookie for next season. Coleman is still the safer play because he remains Atlanta’s starter, but Smith will be a sneaky start on Sunday when the Falcons host a Cardinals defense that ranks No. 25 against fantasy running backs. Ranked as our RB35 for Week 15, Smith is an option for desperate owners looking for an RB2.
