Sources: The Patriots are trading TE Jonnu Smith to the Falcons, as a former big-ticket free agent heads elsewhere and creates space for New England.
Smith is reunited with his former coach, Arthur Smith. In his last season in Tennessee, Smith posted 41-448-8 on 65 targets and was the fantasy TE11. Don't expect those numbers with Kyle Pitts soaking up most of the tight end targets.
Former UDFA Scotty Washington saw his first snaps of the year, but Jonnu Smith would be the true beneficiary if Henry were to miss any time. Smith shifted away from his run-blocking duties for the most part in Week 15, but it still only resulted in four targets and 21 yards. Jonnu's time in New England has not been fortuitous for fantasy, and it isn't like to change regardless of Hunter's status.
The tweet went on to say he's week-to-week. That likely means he could miss Week 5 and possibly beyond. Smith has just a 5-58-0 line for the season. While Henry could see a bump in production, his line for the season is 5-41-0.
