2022 Players Top 50: #20 Dhane Smith

By Joe Keegan | Dec 12, 2022

Very few passers dare to feed the interior as often as Dhane Smith does. Dhane dished 44 assist opportunities (2nd among midfielders) in ‘22, with 36.4% of those passes creating shots from the doorstep or hole (league average = 14.2%).

Dhane was especially dangerous out of Chaos’s invert set (“INDIANA!”). Chaos rarely attacks from behind the cage in their base offense. But when Dhane has a short-stick and they’re looking to be deliberate with their tempo, they’ll call for an invert. Dhane’s decision-making is elite; he picks defenses apart as a scorer, by hitting singles, or by jamming a feed inside like this one to Chris Cloutier.
