Smith has had 16, 9, 12 and 8 touches over his last four games while Gurley has had 9, 8 and 3 over his last three games. Meanwhile, Hill has seen 13, 5, 2 and 7 touches over his last four. Smith has had 8 catches over the last four games but it's only produced 20 yards. As the group, Smith has the lone TD among the three backs, and that was back in Week 12 against the Raiders. Week 1-9, Gurley got anywhere from 14-23 carries a game but has been dealing with a knee injury that has likely changed his role. What all this means is none of these backs are really a safe fantasy play.
ATL RB Ito Smith - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Buccaneers
Atlanta's running game turned into both a mystery and a mess. The Falcons had extreme trouble running the football in the second half of the season and get one more game against the top rush defense in the league. Smith was held to just 24 yards in Week 15 against Tampa. He's not a recommended play if you're playing for a championship this week. It's just a poor matchup and Smith's ceiling is capped by the other backs in Atlanta.
