Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver DeVonta Smith had another outstanding game last week against the Denver Broncos. Smith is starting to hit his stride and will look to add to his touchdown total on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles WR DeVonta Smith

If Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase is the best rookie receiver in this past year’s draft class, then DeVonta Smith is the second-best wideout. Smith had another good performance last week against the Broncos, where he posted four receptions (six targets) for 66 yards and two touchdowns.

For the second consecutive week, Smith scored a touchdown and 22.6 fantasy points. It appears that him and second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts have found a connection, which is good news for Eagles fans and fantasy football managers. The rookie wideout will have a competitive matchup on Sunday against the Saints, who are allowing 26.3 fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Smith is a must-start in all formats this week as he’s one of the Eagles' best players on offense.
