2014 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Jul-02-2014 by Rob Warner

The diminutive 35-year-old signed a three-year, $10.5 million contract to join the Ravens as they've been in search of a viable compliment receiver for Torrey Smith. S. Smith had to endure bracket and double-coverages for many seasons as the Panthers No. 1 receiver. The University of Utah alum has topped 1,000 yards in seven seasons (most recently in 2012 when he hauled in 73 balls for 1,174 yards and four TDs). His 2013 season was one of his worst, as Smith had 64 catches for 745 yards (50 YPG). He'll now become the second or third option (possibly seeing fewer targets than T. Smith and Dennis Pitta) in Baltimore's passing game. S. Smith's ADP (WR69, 174.12) makes him an obvious afterthought for most fantasy owners. He can be had in the final rounds practically uncontested.

Editor's note: This guy is a grinder. He was forced to practically carry Carolina's passing game for years. Now defenses can't focus on him and he will find open holes in the wake of T. Smith's deep routes and run drag routes next to Pitta. Even the faintest of imaginations will find a way to use S. Smith creatively. There's just no way of knowing, until we see it, how the Ravens will use him and how effective he will be in that new role. Well worth a final round flier as your WR6.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
6.07 Fantasytaz - Jim Day - Steve Smith continues to be the forgotten man in fantasy but he makes a solid #2 receiver at this point in the draft. If Cam continues to play in 2013 the way he finished 2012 then Smith could even see an uptick in points this year. I would've taken Smith over several of the receivers taken before him.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
5.11 BFD Fantasy - I've got an aged group of WRs and that's a risky proposition for sure. Smith has plenty of mileage but also has no competition for the WR looks on this team. Steve will catch passes, the end zone continues to elude him.

5.06 DynastyLeague Football - I think by this point everyone but me and @FantasyTaz had taken a WR. Pairing Cam with Steve Smith is something I'm comfortable with. Getting Smith as my WR1 made me feels good about my gamble waiting for WRs.
