DeVonta Smith: An Under-the-Radar WR1?

Despite being overshadowed by the big play ability of teammate A.J. Brown (1,496 yards, 17.0 yds/rec, 11 TDs), Eagles WR DeVonta Smith quietly led all Philly pass catchers in receptions in 2022 with 95. His 1,196 receiving yards also ranked 8th in the NFL among receivers with 100+ targets.

Perhaps even more eye-popping was the consistency with which Smith was demanding targets in 2022, especially at the end of the year. From Week 10 onward, Smith registered at least 8 targets in every single game to close the season – even with A.J. Brown logging two 10-target games and a 16-target game, as well, in that span.
