Flashes to finish season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-12

Smith-Marsette finished the regular season with 8 catches on 10 targets for 51 yards and eight rushes for 74 yards and a touchdown in 17 games. He also returned 37 punts for 322 yards and another score.

Smith-Marsette handled punt-return duties throughout the season and saw his offensive role expand after Laviska Shenault (ankle) was injured in November. Although he produced some good moments on gadget plays, it remains to be seen whether Carolina's new front office will look to retain Smith-Marsette as a restricted free agent this offseason.

Practices fully Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-04

Smith-Marsette (illness) practiced in full Thursday.

An illness kept Smith-Marsette off the practice field Wednesday, but the ailment didn't impact his on-field work whatsoever one day later. He's received at least one touch in four straight games, a stretch in which he's compiled six catches (on seven targets) for 31 yards and eight carries for 74 yards and one touchdown.

Sidelined by illness Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-03

Smith-Marsette (illness) didn't practice Wednesday, David Newton of reports.

Both Smith-Marsette and running back Miles Sanders were sidelined Wednesday due to an illness, so something could be going around the locker room in Carolina. Smith-Marsette has taken on a larger role in recent weeks with Jonathan Mingo (foot) on injured reserve, averaging 31.7 scrimmage yards in the last three games. The third-year wideout from Iowa will try to close out his season on a high note Sunday against the Buccaneers, but he'll first have to recover from his illness.

Garners four touches

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-02

Smith-Marsette caught all three of his targets for 12 yards and rushed once for zero yards in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Jaguars.

Smith-Marsette's reception tally marked a season high, yet unlike the past couple weeks, he failed to contribute any pop from his gadget role. Nonetheless, given his increased involvement over the last handful of games, Smith-Marsette could be utilized similarly in Sunday's season finale versus the Buccaneers.

Hits pay dirt against Packers

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-27

Smith-Marsette caught his lone target for 18 yards and rushed twice for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Packers.

Smith-Marsette found the end zone for the first time this season, scoring on a 20-yard run in the second quarter. For the second straight week, the 24-year-old wideout did most of his damage on the ground. Despite his versatile skill set, Smith-Marsette's fantasy value is limited in the Carolina's struggling offense. The veteran will look to continue his increased involvement heading into a matchup with Jaguars in Week 17.

Extra involvement Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-18

Smith-Marsette caught both of his targets for one yard and rushed four times for 31 yards in Sunday's 9-7 win over the Falcons. He also muffed a punt but recovered it himself.

Smith-Marsette was used more as a gadget player Sunday, helping a poor Panthers offense move the ball through his involvement as a runner. As a result, his value should receive a slight uptick ahead of Week 16's game versus the Packers.

Logs season-high 12 snaps

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-06

Smith-Marsette played 12 of the Panthers' 72 snaps on offense and went without a target in Sunday's 21-18 loss to the Buccaneers.

Since being acquired from the Chiefs shortly before Week 1, Smith-Marsette has suited up in all 12 of the Panthers' games while serving as the team's top punt returner. Though most of the value he provides to Carolina come through his contributions on special teams, Smith-Marsette has started to see a slight uptick in playing time on offense at receiver while the Panthers have made Terrace Marshall a healthy inactive the past three weeks. The 12 snaps Smith-Marsette picked up Sunday represented a season-high total.

Gets dealt

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-29

Smith-Marsette was traded to the Panthers on Tuesday, Dov Kleiman of reports.

The teams will swap conditional seventh-round picks in the deal, while Smith-Marsette should provide some improved depth at receiver for Carolina. The Iowa product has appeared in 16 games over the last three NFL seasons, making six catches for 131 yards and two touchdowns.

Sticks with Chiefs

Kansas City signed Smith-Marsette to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Smith-Marsette suited up for two regular-season games with the Chiefs this season in addition to spending time on the team's practice squad. He wasn't targeted in those contests, playing just 12 offensive snaps and one snap on special teams. The 2021 fifth-round pick will get a chance to continue his development this offseason.
