After a bizarre week in the NFL, the IDP fantasy football waiver wire decided to follow suit, as some unlikely names make an appearance while previously devalued names reemerge as relevant. We’re heading toward the fantasy football playoffs, so don’t take the foot off the gas and remain active to make your roster the best it can be.

Smoot is currently the Jaguars' second-highest graded defensive player this season (76.5). He has earned a 75.4 pass-rush grade this year with 32 pressures and four sacks. His 32 pressures lead the Jaguars and currently rank 13th among edge defenders this season. What we like about Smoot is that his strong play has led to an increase in playing time. This past week, he played a season-high 82% of snaps against the Buffalo Bills.

Smoot doesn’t quite have Josh Allen‘s tackle floor, but if he is going to be playing a near-identical snap share then his productivity should continue. Smoot’s primary competition coming into the season was supposed to be 2020 first-rounder K’Lavon Chaisson, but Chaisson has been ineffective thus far in the NFL. Smoot appears locked in as the starter across from Allen on the edge. He’ll be worth a roster spot in deeper leagues.

5-9 72% 17 3.5
