Draft note
by John Paulsen
There was a lot to like about this signing by the Patriots, until they signed Hunter Henry as well. Smith finished as the No. 10 tight end last season after a No. 19 finish the year before. Smith is a more explosive athlete than Henry, but Henry is the more accomplished receiver. If both players stay healthy, my money is on Henry to lead the two in catches and yards, but it’s really a coin flip.

NE TE Jonnu Smith - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

2020 finally saw Jonnu Smith really see the end zone, scoring a career-high eight touchdowns, as he was a big target whenever the Titans got into the red zone. In fact, only four players had more red-zone touchdowns than Smith and only one of those four was a tight end (Travis Kelce). Smith was rewarded with a $50 million contract ($31.25 million guaranteed) from the Patriots in free agency to be one of the centerpieces of their offense.

Fantasy Downside

When Smith signed with the Patriots, he had a ton of fantasy potential. Then the team signed Hunter Henry to a considerable contract as well. For real football purposes, Smith and Henry give the Patriots a great duo at tight end to bully teams with 12 personnel. For fantasy purposes, Smith and Henry will limit each other's fantasy ceiling.

2021 Bottom Line

The fact that New England went after Smith first could be telling, but a lot also depends on the quarterback situation in New England, whether it's Cam Newton or Mac Jones. But Smith is still brimming with upside and you can get him fairly cheap in drafts as a TE2 with top-12 upside.
