DeVonta Smith On The Week 3 Injury Report

Thursday, September 21, 7:35 PM

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith (hamstring, thigh) was included on the team's first injury report for Week 3 and was listed as a limited practice participant on Thursday. The fact that he's practicing at all in the first session of the week is a sign that his injury isn't serious, but it's something for fantasy managers to watch heading into the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night. As long as the 24-year-old is able to play this week, he'll need to remain in all starting fantasy lineups. Smith has gotten off to a great start through two weeks in 2023, catching 11 of his 15 targets for 178 yards and two touchdowns against the New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba Gets Six Targets In Week 2

Monday, September 18, 7:03 AM

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba caught five of his six targets for 34 yards in Sunday's win over the Detroit Lions. The rookie had some extra time in two receiver sets with DK Metcalf missing most of the first half due to injury. When Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are both healthy, though, Smith-Njigba will be relegated to three receiver sets. That playing time opportunity will be reduced if Seattle continues to utilize two and three tight end sets to shore up their battered and inexperienced offensive line, as they did in Week 2. Smith-Njigba should remain on fantasy benches until he is played more frequently.
