2019 Fantasy Outlook
Although he's ranked fourth, Smith could be drafted first among linebackers, as his upside is difficult to overstate. He was extremely productive as a 21-year-old rookie last year, posting numbers of All-Pro quality while playing only 880 snaps. He'd be hard-pressed to increase his per-snap production, but it can't be ruled out. We can, however, rule out the possibility of Smith playing fewer than 900 snaps in 16 games, so the volume should spike upward through workload at least. Uniquely instinctive, disruptive and athletic, Smith boasts every applicable skill. Read Past Outlooks

On track for training camp

Smith (pectoral) is targeting a return to full health for training camp, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.
ANALYSIS
Smith's 2019 campaign was cut short when he suffered a torn pectoral Week 14 against the Cowboys, for which he underwent surgery and was placed on injured reserve. It's certainly positive news that the star linebacker is expected to be healthy for training camp, which would put him on track to once more be a top-five IDP option for the 2020 season.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
You're forgiven if you don't trust a rookie enough to valuate him this highly, but Smith is very likely the real deal, and Chicago didn't pick him eighth overall to phase him in slowly. Smith (6-1, 236) sometimes looks like a heat-seeking missile compared to the other 10 defenders, boasting plus-plus instincts and athleticism both. After running a 4.51 40 on the heels of a final season at Georgia with 137 tackles (14 for loss) and 6.5 sacks in 15 games, Smith is ready to hunt in the NFL.
