2016 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


After posting his best season of his career in 2013 (65/1128/4), Smith has seen a decline in opportunity in back-to-back years. In 2014, Torrey showed growth in his value at the goal line leading to career high 11 TDs, but he only caught 49 passes for 767 yards on 92 targets. The move to San Fran resulted in a weak opportunity (62 targets) while averaging a league-high 20.1 yards per catch. Smith finished with only 33 catches for 663 yards and four TDs. In his career, Torrey has 34 TDs in 80 career games with a short catch rate (49.6). The 49ers only completed 152 passes to the WR position in 2015 on 264 targets for 2071 yards and 10 TDs compared to 172 catches by the Eagles for 2158 yards and 15 TDs on 279 targets. Ultimately, it comes down to talent. Smith is a big-play receiver, and he should be more productive in Kelly's offense. Torrey has a chance at 60+ chances for 900+ yards and a handful of TDs. I'd draft him as WR5 in 12-team PPR leagues with the hopes of regaining some of his previous form.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
7.05 Adam Ronis - This might have been early, but he's my fifth WR and I am not sure how others value him coming off a season in which he had 33 catches in a situation that was as bad as it could be.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
9.04 Two QBs - Salvatore Stefanile - As the #1 WR in a Chip Kelly offense, Smith should see a boost in targets playing in a system that runs a ton of plays per game. Prior to his career low 62 targets in 2015, he averaged 108.5 in his first four NFL seasons.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
8.11 Draft Sharks - Jared Smola - In three seasons in Philadelphia, Chip Kelly's #1 WRs finished 12th, 9th, and 16th. I don't expect Smith to climb that high, but I do think he'll smash the WR46 price tag I paid here.
