When you look at Smith's 2014 stats, most Fantasy owners will see decline in his game. He set or matched career lows with 767 yards, 49 catches and 92 targets. But his lack of success was more the result of playcalling. And he still scored 11 touchdowns. That intrigues me, because the 49ers will able to use him in the red zone to beat one-on-one coverage. With the Ravens in 2014, Torrey had six games with two catches or fewer and seven games with six targets or fewer. He was held to fewer than 100 yards in every game. Torrey has just a 49.1 percent career catch rate since most of his targets come deep downfield. The poor play of the 49ers' offensive line is a concern as Kaepernick may not have enough time to get the ball to Torrey deep. I like his growth in scoring ability, and Smith can always take the top off of a defense. But his success will be limited by the low number of pass plays San Fran calls. Last year, Michael Crabtree had 68 catches, 698 yards and four TDs on 108 targets in what I would consider a down year. I expect Smith to see 120-plus targets, which will led to about 60 catches, 900 yards and 6-8 scores. Torrey should be drafted as a WR3 with boom-or-bust risk.
