2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Nov-04-2013 by Matt De Lima

Before the arrival of Cam Newton, it appeared that Steve Smith would go gently into that good night. Now, even at age 34, he is a reliable and relatively safe choice as a WR2. Carolina and most fantasy owners for that matter are waiting on Brandon LaFell to emerge as more than just an afterthought. This allows Smith to receive a ton of targets from Newton with only Greg Olsen as a direct competitor for production. Smith makes for an even better WR3 or possibly a flex option if he falls far enough. Given fantasy owners' propensity to seek out the next best thing, this former Utah alum is a safe bet.

UPDATE (11/4): Smith has seem to hit the wall. His numbers haven't dramatically declined; however, he has not yet tallied 100-plus yards or even more than six receptions in a single game. Fantasy owners can plug him in just about every week as a WR3 without hesitation despite the lack of any big games. It seems Smith's age has finally caught up to him, even if only slightly.

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.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
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.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
