Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith returned to practice on Friday after missing Thursday’s session with an illness.

This should put the former first-round pick on track to play in the team’s Week 4 game against the Washington Commanders.

DeVonta Smith injury status for Week 4 against the Commanders

Smith returned to practice after being listed as “DNP” on Thursday. He does not carry an injury designation for Week 4.

Best DeVonta Smith prop bet for Week 4 vs. Washington Commanders

DeVonta Smith UNDER 4.5 receptions

Even though he’s going to play in Week 4, I’d still fade Smith in this matchup given his recent target numbers. 

After getting 10 targets in Week 1, Smith has only seen five looks in each of the last two games. That’s a big downtick in chances, and he would’ve needed to catch all of his targets just to clear this prop in each of the last two weeks. 

Philly may blow out this Washington team – which lost to the Buffalo Bills 37-3 last week – so the team may rely more on the run game in Week 4. I think there’s some value in taking the UNDER at plus money for Smith’s receptions.
