Green Bay Packers star pass rusher Za'Darius Smith will play in Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints.

Betting Impact:

Smith followed two limited practices with a DNP this week so there was some major concern that the Packers could be without their top pass rusher for Week 1. However, it has now been confirmed that Smith will play and be ready for a near full complement of snaps. While this news will not change the spread by itself, Green Bay having their star pass rusher increases the probability of a Packers cover.
