Antone Smith RB ATL 7 Months

Falcons RB Antone Smith (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Smith returned to practice this week after sitting out last Sunday's win over the Redskins. He'll see limited carries as the Falcons' No. 4 running back and contribute on special teams if active for Monday night's game against the 49ers.

Antone Smith rushed once for 11 yards in Atlanta's Week 12 loss to the Saints.

So much for it being "imperative" to get Smith more involved in the offense. Fighting with Jason Snelling for scraps behind Steven Jackson and Jacquizz Rodgers, Smith got out-touched by Snelling 2-1. There's no fantasy value here.

Falcons coach Mike Smith said Monday he believes it's "imperative" to get RB Antone Smith more involved on offense.

Smith gained 92 total yards and scored a touchdown on three garbage-time touches in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay. Behind Steven Jackson, Jacquizz Rodgers, and Jason Snelling on the depth chart, it's difficult to say where Smith could make his mark. Perhaps it would come at the expense of S-Jax, who has struggled mightily during his full-on flop of a season with Atlanta.

Falcons RB Antone Smith rushed twice for 88 yards and a touchdown and caught a four-yard pass in Atlanta's Week 11 loss to Tampa Bay.

Surprisingly taking change-of-pace carries away from Jacquizz Rodgers late in the game, Smith turned his lone two carries into garbage-time gains of 50 and 38, the former going for a score. While Smith doesn't suddenly have fantasy value, it isn't crazy to think he's earned more touches moving forward.

Daniel Cox of AtlantaFalcons.com suggests Antone Smith as a darkhorse candidate for the team's kick returner job.

Eric Weems signed with Chicago after handling all 24 of the Falcons kick returns last season and 40 of a possible 46 in 2010. Smith has never returned a kick at the professional level, but will compete with Harry Douglas, Jacquizz Rodgers, and Dominique Franks for the job.
