49ers | WR corps inexperienced in San Fran

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:25:50 -0700

San Francisco 49ers Torrey Smith is one of just three receivers with more than 40 career receptions heading into the 2016 season. WRs Jerome Simpson (150) and Quinton Patton (56) are the others. Simpson and Patton will be in the mix to serve as the No. 2 receiver opposite Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is your best bet for fantasy production in Frisco, and his health is imperative for the fantasy appeal of Blaine Gabbert/Colin Kaepernick and the success of the offense as a whole. Simpson and Patton are only likely to be rostered in fantasy leagues of 14 or more teams.

49ers | DeAndre Smelter better after sitting out

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 21:21:52 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR DeAndre Smelter said he benefitted from sitting out and rehabbing his knee last year because he was able to observe and learn from WR Torrey Smith and WR Anquan Boldin.

49ers | Torrey Smith ready for No. 1 role

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:13:59 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith inherits the No. 1 spot in the depth chart with WR Anquan Boldin no longer with the organization. It will be the first time in Smith's career that he is the unquestioned go-to guy. Smith wants to be more than just a deep threat and worked to develop a good rapport with QB Blaine Gabbert in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is still worth drafting only as a WR2 at best, as he might be a No. 1 on his team but he still has a rather questionable quarterback situation.

49ers | San Fran's starting receivers

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 08:48:07 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WRs Torrey Smith, Quinton Patton and Bruce Ellington would be the team's starting receivers if the season started today. Patton struggled with some dropped passes during practice Thursday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is the veteran of the bunch and the safest fantasy target as a WR3 that profiles better as a deep threat in standard-scoring formats. Patton is the one who could be a decent sleeper with WR3 upside as a speedster if he can develop chemistry with Colin Kaepernick. Ellington, for now, can be left to waivers in most leagues.

49ers | Quinton Patton in line to start

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 18:20:18 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton has been working as a starter across from WR Torrey Smith during OTAs.

Fantasy Tip: Patton has managed just 36 catches in his first three years in the NFL, so he is far from a proven option. Chip Kelly's offense could bring out the best in him, but he can be left on waivers to open the year.

49ers | Fast-paced minicamp for 49ers

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:00:41 -0700

San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly has already made an impression on his new team following minicamp. "It's quicker, you're up to the line of scrimmage faster," wide receiver Torrey Smith said. "I actually like it because I'm usually the last person to jog back to the huddle anyway. Just get lined up, you can catch your break there and you can also catch the defense off guard."

TE Garrett Celek said the simplicity of the offense enables them to play faster. The offensive players said it will take some time to adjust to the new approach, but Celek said once it clicks it will be go, go, go.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly is known, maybe even notorious, for his fast-paced offensive style. It's still unclear who exactly will play quarterback, but Colin Kaepernick will likely start if he isn't traded and stays healthy. One name to keep an eye on in San Francisco this offseason is Smith, who could excel in Kelly's prolific offense. View Smith as a WR4 with WR3 upside.

49ers | Torrey Smith expected to play

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 16:55:10 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (back, foot) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the St. Louis Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been pretty quiet over the last few weeks but does have two touchdowns in his last four weeks. Smith would have a tough matchup this week against the Rams and may not be a great option for owners.

49ers | Torrey Smith limited at practice

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 18:54:36 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (foot, back) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is an all-or-nothing play at FantasyScore, and he is far more likely to disappoint than deliver a useful line.

49ers | Torrey Smith practices

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 17:38:02 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (back, foot) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) appears to be on track to play in the regular season finale against the St. Louis Rams. Smith has not caught more than than two passes in his last nine games and is not a strong option for fantasy owners this week.

49ers | Torrey Smith probable for Week 16

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 15:12:54 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (back, foot) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 25, and he is probable for the Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Over his past eight games, Smith ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) hasn't caught more than two passes in any outing, and he has just one touchdown and 256 receiving yards during the span. He isn't a viable option in the majority of fantasy formats for Week 16, including at FantasyScore

49ers | Torrey Smith limited Thursday

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 16:36:44 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (back, foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) appears to be on track to play in Week 16 and should have a solid role in the passing game. He has caught more than three passes in only one game this season and is not the best option for owners in most leagues.

49ers | Torrey Smith misses practice

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 18:05:53 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (back, foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) was able to play last week despite the injuries and probably has a good chance to play in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions. He has caught two or fewer passes in each of his last eight games and is not a strong fantasy option.

49ers | Torrey Smith active

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 12:53:12 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (back, toe) is officially active for the Week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) probably will see a solid amount of targets during the game but is facing a solid Bengals defense. Owners should be able to find better options to use.

49ers | Torrey Smith questionable

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 17:03:38 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (back, toe) is listed as questionable for the Week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) could be a game-time decision, so owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineups. Smith has caught two or fewer passes in all but one game this season and has been a bit inconsistent with his receiving yards. Owners may want to look for other options to use because of the injuries.

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 17:38:03 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (back, toe) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has missed the last two practices and may not be able to play against the Cincinnati Bengals this week. Owners should consider other starting options even if Smith is active.

49ers | Torrey Smith misses practice

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 20:08:42 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (back, toe) missed practice Wednesday, Dec. 16, as he is nursing back and toe injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) can be avoided in FantasyScore and most other formats, as the Bengals rank 17th against the pass in yardage, and they have allowed just 15 passing touchdowns which is good for fourth in the league.

49ers | Torrey Smith active against Cleveland

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 08:46:30 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (back, toe) is active for Week 14's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) had been listed as questionable on the team's injury report after returning to practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 11. He has had two or fewer receptions in each of his last six games and is not a great FantasyScore option.

49ers | Torrey Smith questionable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 15:57:36 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (back, toe) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 11, and is listed as questionable for the Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Smith ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will be able to play against the Browns. He has gone six games with catching two passes or fewer and is not a great option for fantasy owners to consider.

49ers | Three Niners out of practice

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 07:07:10 -0800

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot), TE Vance McDonald (concussion) and WR Torrey Smith (back, toe) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look good for any of these players against the Cleveland Browns Sunday. Hyde ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has missed considerable time and might be shut down for the rest of the year at this point. Shaun Draughn ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) continues to see a big chunk of the backfield workload and is a great value selection on FantasyScore against the Browns. McDonald ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) and Smith ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) should be off your radar.

49ers | Blaine Gabbert has fantastic finish

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 15:19:16 -0800

San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert ran for the tying touchdown and then threw a 71-yard bomb to WR Torrey Smith in overtime to give his team a 26-20 win over the Chicago Bears. Gabbert was 18 of 32 for 196 yards in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Gabbert ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is proving to be a decent fill-in for injured QB Colin Kaepernick. It's too soon to tell whether Gabbert will take this job into 2016, but games like this don't hurt. He had 14 incompletions, but a win is a win.

49ers | Anquan Boldin, Torrey Smith to play

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 15:32:35 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WRs Anquan Boldin (hamstring) and Torrey Smith (back) both practiced in full Friday, Dec. 4, and are probable to face the Chicago Bears in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has exactly 93 receiving yards in each of the last two games on 18 targets from Blaine Gabbert, which would make him a pretty safe value play on FantasyScore against the Bears. Smith ($2,500, 5.0% of cap), on the other hand, has just five catches in the three games that Gabbert has started. He remains a low-end wideout to avoid.

49ers | Torrey Smith invisible again

Mon, 02 Nov 2015 13:24:17 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith was once again a non-factor in the Week 8 loss to the St. Louis Rams, and he showed his frustration after the game, especially because of a play in which QB Colin Kaepernick failed to recognize that Smith was left uncovered. Kaepernick has frequently been criticized for his lack of field vision. Smith finished with just two catches on five targets in the game after dropping his only target in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick's struggles this year have been well-documented, and the Niners could be ready to make a switch at quarterback. That would further hurt Smith's fantasy value with his new team. He's more of a threat in non-PPR leagues anyway, so he's a very weak option that should be avoided for now on FantasyScore.

49ers | No catches for Torrey Smith

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 21:26:35 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith had no catches on one target in a 20-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has big-play speed, but when he doesn’t connect on a big play or two, he is basically useless at FantasyScore. He is a high-risk, high-reward option.

49ers | Torrey Smith scores on former team

Sun, 18 Oct 2015 17:51:28 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith had three catches for 96 yards, including a 76-yard touchdown, in a 25-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) hasn't done much in four of the six games this season, and if he doesn't catch a long touchdown, he is basically useless. He remains a high-risk, high-reward gamble at FantasyScore.

49ers | Torrey Smith limited to 42 yards

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 22:10:42 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith had two receptions for 42 yards in the Week 5 game against the New York Giants on his only two targets of the game.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) was overshadowed by Anquan Boldin ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) in this one. And with the way the 49ers moved the ball in the second half, it wouldn't be shocking to see the disparity in targets continue going forward.

49ers | Torrey Smith not getting it done

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 14:57:30 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith has nine catches for 185 yards on the season through four games, but two of those catches accounted for 122 of his yards, and he has one touchdown. Smith was seen storming off the field in a Week 4 loss in frustration, and San Fran has the No. 32-ranked passing attack with an average of just 158.8 yards per game through the air. Smith is averaging just 9.0 yards per catch if you take away his 75-yard touchdown catch in Week 2. He averaged 16.9 yards per catch with the Baltimore Ravens. "We need to use (Smith) more and we need to get him more involved," head coach Jim Tomsula said. "So again, that's on the checklist."

Fantasy Tip: It hasn't helped Smith ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) that Colin Kaepernick has regressed even further so far in 2015. Smith has always been more of a home run hitter, making him more valuable in standard than PPR leagues. The way the Niners offense is playing, Smith is a desperation dart throw on FantasyScore.

49ers | Torrey Smith gets shut out

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 22:52:41 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith was targeted twice in the Week 3 game against the Arizona and he ended up with zero catches while being defended by CB Patrick Peterson.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) had emerged as a solid FantasyScore option, but this game showed why you just cannot trust the San Francisco offense for DFS purposes.

49ers | Torrey Smith probable for Week 3

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 15:47:06 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 25, and is listed as probable for the game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is currently leading the team with 131 receiving yards and should continue to see a solid amount of targets this week. Smith could be covered by Patrick Peterson at times during the game, which could hurt his fantasy value.

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 17:22:35 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) should be able to play against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3 but will be facing a tough defense. He is coming off a terrific Week 2 performance, but owners may want to consider other options to use.

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 17:16:03 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) should be able play in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals unless he suffers a setback. Smith could be covered by Patrick Peterson at times in Week 3, which could hurt his fantasy value. Smith could be a starting option for owners, but they may want to lower expectations.

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith (leg) suffered a leg contusion during the team's Week 2 game but should be ready to play in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is coming off a terrific Week 2 performance when he recorded 120 yards and a touchdown. Smith will continue to be the team's deep threat and could be a starting option most weeks.

49ers | Torrey Smith bounces back

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 17:11:44 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith had six catches for 120 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown, in a 43-18 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: After being a non-factor in Week 1, Smith ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) showed off his big-play ability Sunday. That being said, his value at FantasyScore each week is going to depend on whether or not he catches a long score, so he is always a boom-or-bust option.

49ers | Torrey Smith struggles against Steelers

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 19:01:51 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith has three total touchdowns in eight career meetings with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he has topped 80 receiving yards in just one of the eight meetings.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) had a forgettable debut with San Francisco in Week 1, and he might not be much better in Week 2. You can find better options than Smith in this price range at FantasyScore.

49ers | Torrey Smith quiet in debut

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 23:01:41 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith posted just one reception for 11 yards in the Week 1 game against the Minnesota Vikings Monday, Sept. 14, in his team debut. He was targeted three times.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) had a terrible night for FantasyScore players, who hopefully stayed away. He will face a familiar opponent in Week 2 when the team travels to meet the Pittsburgh Steelers, a team he has faced seven times in four years when he was member of the Baltimore Ravens. He scored twice in the past three meetings with the Steelers.

49ers | Torrey Smith ready to contribute

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 15:54:55 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith is still working with QB Colin Kaepernick on more timely passes on deep routes. WR Anquand Boldin said Smith's speed has been an adjustment for Kaepernick and that the young quarterback is still learning how to throw to the speedy Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is the 49ers' best deep threat. It may still take some time for Kaepernick and Smith to develop a good rapport, though. Still, Smith is San Francisco's No. 2 receiver and should be considered a WR4 in standard leagues.

49ers | Big role for Torrey Smith?

Sat, 23 May 2015 19:56:04 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith was a featured part of the offense during practice Thursday, May 21, connecting with QB Colin Kaepernick on several plays and catching a touchdown from QB Blaine Gabbert in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: Smith still figures to do a lot of his damage via big plays down the field, but he should see enough targets on a weekly basis to warrant consideration as a WR2 in traditional formats. In PPR leagues, he is more of a WR3.

49ers | Torrey Smith should free up Vernon Davis

Thu, 14 May 2015 05:17:34 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith's arrival should free up TE Vernon Davis to stretch the field, according to general manager Trent Baalke. "The one thing that really shows up is the way the field's opened up more with the speed or Torrey being able to stretch the outside," Baalke said. "And it really helps Vernon's game because now Vernon's game is (to) stretch the field a little bit, as well."

Fantasy Tip: Davis was a huge disappointment in 2014 and rates as a low-end TE1 with minimal upside.

49ers | Torrey Smith a done deal in San Francisco

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 07:56:29 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin said Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Torrey Smith is signing with the Niners. Boldin said it's a done deal, and he helped recruit Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Smith had a career-high 11 touchdowns in 2014, but his other numbers were below par for a WR2. Smith would be a featured cog in the offense, but he has had more than 50 receptions and 1,000 yards just once. He's a low-end WR2, but he's quite risky in PPR formats.

49ers | Torrey Smith likely to San Francisco

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 05:30:41 -0700

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Torrey Smith is likely to sign with the San Francisco 49ers. One source said it was "all but done." Smith returning to the Ravens was unlikely for a number of weeks because he would have had to leave several million on the table.

Fantasy Tip: Smith caught a career-high 11 touchdowns last season, but he disappointed everywhere else with 49 catches and 767 yards. Moving to San Fran, he'll have two proven possession receivers beside him. So he'll be used to stretch the field, but he'll have to catch more than half his targets to be useful in PPR formats. Consider Smith a very low-end WR2, but he's better served as a WR3.

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Torrey Smith has announced on his website Sunday, March 8, that he will not return to the team in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: The speedy Smith figures to be the main deep threat for whichever team he signs with, but he will remain a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option on a week-to-week basis.

49ers | 49ers interested in Torrey Smith

Sat, 07 Mar 2015 18:42:50 -0800

Free-agent WR Torrey Smith (Ravens) is drawing heavy interest from the San Francisco 49ers, according to multiple league sources.

Fantasy Tip: San Francisco needs a deep threat in the passing game, and Smith would certainly provide it. He has been a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option throughout his career because so much of his production comes from big plays, and that wouldn't change if he ended up with the 49ers.

Texans | Houston eyeing Torrey Smith?

Sat, 07 Mar 2015 11:56:45 -0800

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Torrey Smith could be a target of the Houston Texans this offseason following the departure of WR Andre Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Smith had a career-high 11 touchdowns in 2014, but tallied just 49 catches for 767 yards -- both career-lows. His prospects won't be as high, either, if he does sign with Houston, as the Texans don't even know who their starting quarterback will be yet.

Ravens | Baltimore won't overpay for Torrey Smith

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 13:18:07 -0800

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Torrey Smith might command too much money on the open market for the Ravens to re-sign him, and general manager Ozzie Newsome said the team won't break the bank to keep him around.

Fantasy Tip: If Smith stays with the Ravens, he'll continue to be a weak WR1 and a top-tier WR2 for fantasy purposes with Joe Flacco slinging him the rock deep down the field. Stay tuned to see where Smith lands if he leaves Baltimore. He can be risky to rely on in fantasy football because of his all-or-nothing profile. Smith is much safer in non-PPR leagues.

Ravens | Tag unlikely for Torrey Smith

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Torrey Smith doesn't appear to be a candidate for the franchise tag, even though the Ravens would like to see him return.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is much more useful in standard fantasy football leagues than point-per-reception formats because of his all-or-nothing style as a deep threat on the football field. Regardless of where he lands this year, consider him more of a WR3 or low-end No. 2.

Ravens | Torrey Smith wants to stay in Baltimore

Sun, 11 Jan 2015 13:14:34 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith said he wants to stay with the team and that he would love to have a deal signed before he becomes a free agent in March.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's 49 catches and 767 yards were both the lowest totals of his career, but he did lead the team with 11 touchdowns. His best asset is his ability to stretch the field with big plays, but wherever Smith ends up next season, he is likely to remain a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option.

Ravens | Torrey Smith returns

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 14:03:48 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (shoulder) returned to the field with 6:30 remaining in the first quarter. NBC Sports sideline reporter Michele Tafoya said the team checked out his shoulder and gave him precautionary concussion tests after the way his neck snapped backwards on the hit that sent him to the locker room.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($6,200; 12.4% of your cap) was a promising WR2 start on FantasyScore today with Darrelle Revis covering Steve Smith. Joe Flacco has hit the latter Smith three times, including a score. Torrey Smith has a 22-yard catch thus far, but defensive adjustments could open things up for him.

Ravens | Torrey Smith exits Saturday

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 13:49:27 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (undisclosed) went to the locker room after a hard hit in the divisional-round game Saturday, Jan. 10, for "general evaluation," according to NBC Sports sideline reporter Michele Tafoya. It is not for the concussion protocol. He is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was hit in the back, and he looked like his neck snapped back a little bit. He got up under his own power, and it's premature to speculate as to what ails him. We'll keep you posted.

Ravens | Torrey Smith has solid prospects

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 07:01:39 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith is expected to line up against New England Patriots CB Brandon Browner for most of the divisional-round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($6,200; 12.4% of your cap) has a better draw than Steve Smith. We actually don't mind rolling the dice on him as a very low-end WR1 or great WR2 on FantasyScore. The Ravens will need to use the aerial attack to win this game.
