Coming off his second two-TD game of the season, I personally don't see how you can sit Smith. An exception can be made if you have Kelce, Kittle, or Andrews. But even then, I might try to find a way to work him into your flex. He is averaging around seven targets per game and playing on roughly 87.3 percent of snaps. With Corey Davis doubtful to suit up in week six, Smith figures to yet again be an integral part of the Titans passing attack. Houston has been middle of the pack when it comes to defending TE's, but are above average defending a teams WR1. Thus far, that has funneled production towards their opponents number two options, which for the Titans would be... You guessed it: Jonnu Smith. An ESPN projection of 11.1 should be easy for him to beat this week.
Others to consider: Mike Gesicki (MIA) - NYJ, Evan Engram (NYG) - WSH, Eric Ebron (PIT) - CLE
Sit of the week: Noah Fant vs New England Patriots
Let's just be clear, I love Fant this season. But I don't like him this week. If he plays (which, at the moment is a big if) he’ll be hobbled, facing a Pats defense surrendering the second-fewest receptions and third-fewest yards to TE's this season. They've already gone against Waller, Kelce and Mike Gesicki this season, so the stats are in no way unreliable. In week three, they held Darren Waller to nine yards on two catches, which is his lowest point total in his last 21 games. It's unlikely you have a TE more talented than Fant on your roster, but he should be left on the bench this week.
Others to consider: Jimmy Graham (CHI) - @CAR, Rob Gronkowski (TB) - GB, Drew Sample (CIN) - @IND
