Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Inked to practice squad by KC
The Chiefs signed Smith-Marsette to their practice squad Friday, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports.
Smith-Marsette was waived by the Bears on Tuesday after totaling one catch on four targets for 15 yards through six games. Kansas City unquestionably has a more potent passing attack, but Smith-Marsette isn't likely to ascend far enough up the receiver depth chart to be an impactful fantasy asset, if he's able to make the active roster at all. The Chiefs may see more value in him as a kick returner, as he has both college and NFL experience in that role.... See More ... See Less

Smith-Marsette was targeted on a key fourth down while the Bears were trying to drive for a go-ahead score, but the pass went through his hands. He was on the field for 35 percent of the snaps, so his role in the offense is growing, but unless his targets increase significantly, he'll be a non-factor in fantasy.... See More ... See Less

Facing his former team, Smith-Marsette caught a pass in the last two minutes of the game as Chicago tried to tie the game, but on the play, he fumbled the ball away, which sealed the win for the Vikings.

Smith-Marsette has seen limited snaps on offense, but his only contribution on the stat sheet has been a 17-yard kick return in Week 2. Unless his role changes, his fantasy value will remain low.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Claimed by Bears
The Bears have claimed Smith-Marsette off waivers from the Vikings, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The 2021 fifth-rounder was the odd man out in the Vikings' wideout corps as Week 1 approached, but Smith-Marsette now will add depth to a Chicago wide receiver group that profiles as a work in progress, currently led by top option Darnell Mooney.... See More ... See Less
Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Cut by Vikes
The Vikings waived Smith-Marsette on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
A 2021 fifth-round pick, Smith found it difficult to make inroads in a receiving corps led by Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen and K.J. Osborn as a rookie last season. Smith likely was destined for work on special teams again in 2022, but his performances on that front during exhibition season weren't encouraging. Across three games, he recorded five punt returns for 40 yards (8.0 average) and three kick returns for 55 yards (18.3 average). With Minnesota landing Jalen Reagor via trade Wednesday, Smith-Marsette was deemed expendable by the team. If Smith-Marsette passes through waivers unclaimed, he'll be a candidate to be signed to Minnesota's practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Paces pass catchers in loss
Smith-Marsette brought in all three targets for 63 yards and returned one punt for 21 yards in the Vikings' 23-13 preseason loss to the Broncos on Saturday night.
Smith-Marsette's performance was encouraging under any circumstance, but even more so with fellow wideouts Bisi Johnson (knee) and Jalen Nailor (concussion) both exiting the game with injuries. Smith-Marsette also redeemed himself as a returner after a poor showing in that regard in last Saturday's loss to the 49ers, and he appears set to open the season in a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver role in addition to primary punt-return duties....

Vikings' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Struggles as punt returner
Smith-Marsette had four receptions for 27 yards on four targets in Saturday's preseason loss to San Francisco. He fumbled a punt return out of bounds and bobbled another, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Smith-Marsette has made a strong case this preseason to be the Vikings' No. 4 wide receiver, but his perch atop the depth chart at punt returner looks shaky. Winning a role on special teams could help him win a reserve receiver role in his competition with Bisi Johnson, Albert Wilson, Dan Chisena and sixth-round rookie Jalen Nailor.... See More ...

Vikings' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Looks sharp in preseason opener
Smith-Marsette had three receptions for 31 yards on five targets in Sunday's preseason loss at Las Vegas. He also had three kick returns for an average of 18.3 yards and loss four yards on two punt returns.
Smith-Marsette looked sharp and is likely the leading candidate for the No. 4 receiver role that could get more usage under new head coach Kevin O'Connell. It looks like Smith-Marsette could win the punt return job as well.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Listed as top punt retuner
Smith-Marsette is listed as the primary punt returner on Minnesota's first depth chart of the preseason even though he has never returned a punt in an NFL regular-season game, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
The 2021 fifth-round pick missed some practice time this spring with a lower-leg injury that seems to have been minor. He saw only six targets as a rookie, while K.J. Osborn emerged as the No. 3 receiver, but Smith-Marsette did flash some promise at the end of the season with three catches for 103 yards and a TD in Week 18. If he can carve out a role on special teams, he could win a reserve receiver role in competition with Bisi Johnson, Albert Wilson, Dan Chisena and sixth-round rookie Jalen Nailor.... See More ...
