2022 Fantasy Upside
DeVonta Smith had a solid rookie season with 64 receptions for 916 yards and 5 touchdowns. The Eagles definitely feel he can be an impact player in their offense. They especially like his ability to stretch the field and hope he can be a deep threat for QB Jalen Hurts.
2022 Fantasy Downside
Philadelphia threw the ball less than any NFL team last season. They rely on their running game by both Hurts and their running backs. That limits the amount of opportunities the Eagles receivers have. And although Philly might have drafted Smith thinking possible No. 1 receiver, that has changed with the acquisition of A.J. Brown.
2022 Bottom Line
Smith is clearly the No.2 receiver for the Eagles. This pushes him down the overall rankings and on your fantasy team he should probably be your fourth receiver. He is getting drafted as high as the 7th round but if you can grab him a round or two later, you will get better value.
