It's safe to say that most people watching "Monday Night Football" probably didn't know who Tre'Quan Smith was before the game started, nor did they probably care, to be frank. 


However, after Smith caught a 62-yard touchdown that gave New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees the all-time NFL passing record, making a waiver claim for Smith became a real possibility. 

That historic play wasn't Smith's only big moment of the night either. He would catch another touchdown in the second half, and he ended the night by catching all three of his targets for 111 yards and two touchdowns. The rookie came into the game with just one career catch for 18 yards, but he'll surely remember these last few grabs forever. 


Smith was probably one of the first players picked up on the waiver wire in your league this week. He plays with Brees, which will elevate any receiver, and looked impressive against a Washington Redskins defense that was allowing the fewest total yards per game going into the Week 5 meeting. 


The important thing to remember here is that Smith is now a relevant target in fantasy football, but not necessarily a must-start every week. He's just a player that you should keep your eye on or even pick up if you need some depth at wide receiver, but his targets won't be exceptionally high once Ted Ginn Jr. returns from injury. 


Let's just wait and see what he's able to do next week against the Baltimore Ravens.
