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.

Ravens | Torrey Smith won't be back with Ravens

Sun, 08 Mar 2015 17:33:05 -0700

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

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 10:13:17 -0800

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.
