2022 Fantasy Outlook

$Signed a four-year, $3.65 million contract with the Panthers in May of 2021.
Role grows in second season

Smith caught 22 of 41 targets for 296 yards and two touchdowns while playing all 17 games in the 2022 season.
ANALYSIS
Smith also handled punt-return duties, gaining 143 yards on his 23 attempts. Although he temporarily found himself in the dog house after fumbling in a Week 11 loss, Smith profiled as the Panthers' third wideout for most of the campaign. While that marked a promotion from his rookie season -- when he caught just six passes -- the team struggled in the passing game. Going into his third year, Smith will hope to maintain his role, but with a potentially new coaching staff and quarterback combination in Carolina, it wouldn't be surprising if he needs to climb from a depth role all over again.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Drafted in the sixth round this year out of South Carolina, Smith profiles as a slot receiver for the Panthers. Standing just 5-9, 186, he will rely on toughness and route running to make an impact, but with Robby Anderson, DJ Moore, David Moore and Terrace Marshall all likely ahead of him on the depth chart, his opportunities as a rookie could be limited.
