News: Though he didn't gain any yards on his four carries, Smith had two receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason finale against the Jaguars. Impact: Smith took a screen pass 66 yards to the house, breaking a pair of tackles along the way. The Falcons' backup running back situation is rather crowded, as all of Smith, Jacquizz Rodgers and Devonta Freeman got playing time with the first-team offense this preseason. While all of the hype has surrounded Freeman, it was Rodgers who started every preseason game. Should Steven Jackson (hamstring) suffer a setback before Week 1, or suffer another injury down the road, the Falcons might have roles for all three of Rodgers, Smith and Freeman. Realistically, Smith is only worth a look in deeper leagues, as Rodgers is the safest handcuff, while Freeman arguably has the most upside of the trio.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith gained four yards on four carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans Impact: Smith and Devonta Freeman both got some playing time with the first-team offense, but Jacquizz Rodgers started and dominated the first-half touches. While the competition has mostly centered around Rodgers and Freeman, Smith could have some kind of role in the offense if Steven Jackson (hamstring) doesn't make it back for Week 1.(RotoWire, )
