Smith caught three of seven targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Smith found room in the red zone to haul in a three-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter. He also went for a 26-yard gain on the day, and only Christian McCaffrey and Devin Funchess were targeted more. The available looks in the wake of Greg Olsen's (foot) absence could benefit Smith, but with Jarius Wright, D.J. Moore and Ian Thomas also vying for opportunities, Smith is one of a few complementary pieces in the team's passing attack.

Smith caught one of his two targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 16-8 win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Smith was on the field for over 75 percent of Carolina's offensive snaps, trailing only Devin Funchess among wideouts. Despite that involvement, however, Smith didn't get much action in the passing game. With Greg Olsen (foot) facing an uncertain status, more targets could be available going forward, so Smith will aim to add to his workload as he continues to acclimate to new coordinator Norv Turner's scheme.

Smith got the start in Friday's preseason game against Miami, catching his only target for a 12-yard gain.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers opened with two wide receivers and two tight ends, starting Smith, Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen and Ian Thomas. The 29-year-old wideout ended up playing just 10 snaps, as Carolina unsurprisingly allowed other receivers -- including first-round pick D.J. Moore -- to mix in with the first-team offense alongside Funchess. Though he may keep his spot as the nominal starter, Smith is likely to share snaps and targets with Moore, Jarius Wright and Curtis Samuel throughout the regular season.

Smith is part of a Carolina receiving corps that added D.J. Moore in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Joseph Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers weren't content after acquiring Smith in a March trade with the Eagles, subsequently signing Jarius Wright and then drafting Moore at No. 24 overall. The 29-year-old speedster still figures to be in the mix for a starting job, but he'll likely serve as a low-volume deep threat, just as he did in San Francisco and Philadelphia the past three seasons. Moore, Damiere Byrd and Curtis Samuel (ankle) can all offer a similar element of speed, and the Panthers also return their leading receiver from last season, Devin Funchess.

The Eagles dealt Smith to the Panthers for cornerback Daryl Worley on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles are well over the salary cap in advance of the new league year, so this transaction is no surprise. Getting compensation in the form of a young defensive back is merely icing on the cake. On the Panthers' side of the equation, Smith will slot in as one of Cam Newton's top targets, pending moves made in free agency and the draft. In seven seasons as a pro, Smith has averaged 16.4 YPC, but that number has fallen to 12.4 YPC the past two years.

Smith hauled in five of nine pass attempts for 49 yards in Sunday's 41-33 win over the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

EDGE Analysis

He tied Zach Ertz for second on the team in targets, after Nelson Agholor's 11. It marked the third straight game the seven-year veteran had seen increased targets from Nick Foles. For Smith, an up-and-down season ends on a high note, as he had also been seeing an uptick in targets when Carson Wentz went down in Week 14 before having to re-establish his rapport with Foles. The 29-year-old finished the regular season with just 430 yards and two touchdowns and only one game of over 70 yards receiving. A rebound in 2018 is unlikely as the Eagles' receiving corps will remain crowded, with Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins likely to take even more work away from Smith.

Smith caught two of three pass attempts for 17 yards in Sunday's 34-29 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

After seeing his rapport build with Carson Wentz over the last several weeks, Smith's role was drastically reduced with Nick Foles under center, although the seven-year vet did edge Nelson Agholor in snaps 51-49. The 28-year-old also managed to draw a pass interference on a deep ball that set up the Eagles' first touchdown of the day two plays later. It will be tough to count on him in a tough matchup against Oakland in Week 16.

Smith caught six of 11 targets for 100 yards in Sunday's 43-35 win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Smith tied for the team lead in targets and led the way in receiving yardage, thanks in large part to a 46-yard gain to set up a field goal before halftime. He set season highs in every major category in this one, reaching 100 receiving yards for the first time since Week 2 of the 2015 campaign. Though Smith's involvement has trended upward of late, it remains to be seen how his fantasy stock would be impacted if Carson Wentz (knee) is forced to miss any time.

Smith caught five of seven pass attempts for 29 yards in Monday's 24-10 loss to Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

It was the most receptions Smith has had all year and the most targets he's seen since Week 2, yet it was still a disappointing result. While the 28-year-old has seen 12 of his 27 targets this season over his last three contests, he has not exceeded 30 yards receiving since Week 5. Zach Ertz's concussion may mean extra work for Smith Week 14, but the Maryland product is nowhere near a reliable fantasy option as most leagues head to the playoffs.

Smith caught four of five targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 31-3 win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Smith seems to have moved beyond the drops which led to early-season talk of a demotion from the starting lineup, but he's still only the No. 4 pass-game option in a balanced offense that also features a three-headed monster at running back. The 28-year-old speedster has drawn more than five targets just once all season, averaging 2.0 catches for 25.4 yards on 3.5 targets per game. He'll face an injury-marred Seattle secondary on the road in Week 13.
