Browns TE Alex Smith expected to play Sunday: Fantasy implications

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Cleveland Browns tight end Alex Smith is expected to play Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals for the first time since suffering a concussion in the season opener. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns tight end Alex Smith is expected to play Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland. Smith last played in the season opener, catching three passes for 30 yards before being diagnosed with a concussion after the game.

Fantasy Impact: The Browns are currently jammed at tight end, with Ben Watson and Jordan Cameron competing for targets at a position that hasn't been particularly emphasized by the team this season. If Smith were to make a fantasy impact, it would likely be at the fullback spot where he lines up occasionally. At this point, Smith should not be a target in any fantasy format unless injuries suddenly thrust him into a starting role.
