June 13, 2018

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith will return both kicks and punts and serve as a reserve slotback Thursday against the Blue Bombers.

Smith is unlikely to do much in the passing game for the Eskimos, but with him lined up to field any and all kicks from Edmonton's opponents, he will still have some value in leagues that score return yards.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith is listed on the team's depth chart for Saturday's contest against Calgary.

Smith was added to the active roster ahead of this weekend's game as a reserve slotback behind Adarius Bowman, as well as a return man in some capacity alongside Chris Edwards. Up to this point, Smith has played in three games for the Eskimos this season, but hasn't recorded any receptions or rushing attempts in any of those outings.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith is listed as a reserve slotback ahead of Friday's game against the Roughriders.

While Smith, who signed with the Eskimos this week, likely isn't going to see much, if any playing time in the team's offense, he could provide the team with some value right away in the return game. But, for the most part, Smith will serve as a depth option for an offense that is plagued with injuries.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith signed a contract with the Eskimos on Monday, Dave Campbell of Inside Sports reports.

Smith has spent the last three years with the Redblacks and is coming off a 2016 campaign where he had nine receptions for 140 yards across eight games played. After struggling to find a suitor early in the season, Smith will now get a shot with the Eskimos. The Eskimos are dealing with a slew of injuries to the likes of Brandon Zylstra (undisclosed), Nathaniel Behar (undisclosed) and Adarius Bowman (hamstring), so Smith should provide some much-needed depth outside.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith totaled 77 yards on four receptions, 26 yards on five punt returns and 20 yards on his sole kickoff return in Friday's 33-20 loss to the Blue Bombers.

The 25-year-old got the starting opportunity with the Redblacks resting their starting receivers and parlayed the extra playing time into team-leading reception and yardage totals. Smith now has modest but career-high figures in receptions (nine) and yards (140). His exact role in the postseason remains to be seen, but his big-play ability certainly brings plenty of upside.

October 28, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith will start at wide receiver in Saturday's game against the Blue Bombers.

Smith was scratched from last week's lineup, but it does not appear that will happen again this week, as he is set to start opposite Khalil Paden with Juron Criner (undisclosed) out this week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith has been scratched from the lineup for Friday's matchup with the Tiger-Cats, Gord Holder of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

Smith appeared set to return to action Friday after spending last week on the one-game injured list, but the Redblacks feel comfortable both at the receiver position and in the return game, so they decided to deactivate Smith for Friday's contest.

October 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith (undisclosed) is listed as a reserve receiver on the depth chart for Friday's game against the Tiger-Cats.

Smith spent last week on the one-game injured list, but he is set to return to action in Week 18. Smith has caught just two passes since Week 1, so expect his role to remain minimal.

October 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith was placed on the one-game injured list Thursday with an undisclosed setback.

Smith played a bit role in the Redblacks' offense the last few weeks and served as the team's return man with Tristan Jackson injured, but he will cede the return duties to a healthy Jackson this week and will be held out of action altogether.

September 22, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith (undisclosed) is listed on this week's depth chart as a reserve receiver and as the Redblacks' primary return man.

Smith has not appeared in a game since August, but he will be in the lineup for this week's matchup with the Argonauts. He has tallied just two receptions on the year, so most of his opportunities Friday figure to come in the return game.

August 31, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith (undisclosed) is listed as a backup receiver on the Redblacks' depth chart for Wednesday's game against the Alouettes.

It is unclear whether Smith will play since he's listed as a backup, however he is removed from the one-game injured list. The wideout missed the Redblacks past two games due to his undisclosed injury.

August 24, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith (undisclosed) remains on the one-game injured list and won't play in Thursday's matchup with the Lions.

August 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith (undisclosed) was placed on the one-game injured list and won't play Friday against the Alouettes.

With Smith sidelined this week, Tristan Jackson will take over the return duties. Smith's absence shouldn't shake up the aerial attack much, as he hasn't had much of a role as a receiver to this point.

August 5, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith (undisclosed) will be available Saturday against the Eskimos.

Smith was removed from the six-game injured list earlier in the week and is listed as a second-string wideout for Saturday's tilt with the Eskimos. While he isn't likely to see a lot of reps at receiver, he is listed as the primary kick and punter returner.

August 4, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smith (undisclosed) was removed from the six-game injured list Tuesday.

Smith's status for Saturday's game against the Eskimos will not be known until the Redblacks release their depth chart for that contest, but he has a chance to get back on the field this week.

July 4, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

The Redblacks placed Smith on the 6-game injured list Monday.
