2018 Fantasy Outlook
Smith spent just one year playing college ball at Texas Tech, though was able to draw scouts attention with his play and athleticism. He finished the year averaging 11.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.1 blocks across 28.4 minutes, earning him a selection by the Sixers with the 16th overall pick of the 2018 draft. While he only shot 40 total three-pointers, Smith did knock down 45 percent of them, so he appears to at least have the potential to develop into a better than average deep ball shooter once he ups his attempts. As his aforementioned numbers suggest, Smith also excels on the defensive side of the ball, giving him the potential to become a 3-and-D player for the Sixers down the line. All that said, the 19-year-old suffered a Jones fracture at the start of August and then underwent surgery to repair it. That will sideline for a good chunk of the upcoming season and means Fantasy owners should feel comfortable avoiding him in standard drafts. Keep an eye out for a potential return in the second half of the season, but with the likes of J.J. Redick, T.J. McConnell and Markelle Fultz all seeing time at shooting guard, Smith could still struggle to see significant minutes. Read Past Outlooks

Tuesday will mark Smith's first NBA start, as he'll get the nod at shooting guard in place of J.J. Redick (back).
