Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith is officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. We break down the fantasy implications.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith is officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Smith is dealing with a knee injury that limited him in practice all week. Despite the questionable status, Smith should play on Sunday and be a big part of the game plan against a soft New Orleans passing defense. Cam Newton and Smith will be looking to bounce back after the season-opening loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fantasy Impact: Steve Smith is still a safe play as a wide receiver No. 1 in fantasy football this week. He has an outstanding matchup and should be healthy enough to produce for the Panthers.
