2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 49ers used a late-round pick on one of the slowest tight ends in the draft, but what Smith lacks in speed, he makes up for in pure blocking ability and sure hands. The Stanford product appears to be an excellent complement to George Kittle's explosive offensive style. For now, Smith may have to compete for the third spot on the depth chart with Levin Toilolo, who possesses a similar skill set to Smith. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $2.72 million contract with the 49ers in May of 2019. Waived by the 49ers in September of 2019. Claimed off waivers by the Giants in September of 2019.
Makes first career catch
TENew York Giants
November 11, 2019
Smith caught his only target for one yard in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets.
ANALYSIS
Smith -- who was picked in the sixth round by the 49ers last April -- was afforded 41 of a possible 72 offensive snaps (57 percent) since Evan Engram (foot) was inactive and Rhett Ellison suffered a concussion during the contest. Engram and Ellison will both have the upcoming bye to get ready for Week 12's matchup against the Bears, otherwise, Smith could make his first career start.
