When asked "Torrey Smith: Over or Under 750 receiving yards?" by a reader in a live chat, 49ers beat writer Matt Burrows responded with "Under. But that won't mean he was a waste of money necessarily." (Source: The Sacramento Bee)

Fantasy Impact: While this may seem alarming on the surface, as Smith has never posted a season under 750 yards in his four seasons in NFL, but it would simply be reflecting a current trend with the team. For the past three seasons, the 49ers have had only one WR or TE post over 750 receiving yards in a season, Burrows is simply stating that either Anquan Boldin or Vernon Davis is going to be the main target in the offense, not Smith. I personally believe that the team will be forced to throw, and the overall passing pie to grow in size, but look for Smith to finish somewhere between 700 and 900 yards on the season. At the time of this posting Smith is FantasyPros consensus 38WR, and 88th ranked player overall, the experts like him slightly more than his current average draft position.

The schedules for the 2015 NFL season were released this week, and the 49ers have been ranked as the team with the 3rd toughest schedule. Looking at the schedule, the 49ers will go against several high-caliber offenses, but that does not affect Torrey Smith's game. Smith is no stranger to the 49ers, as he was part of the team that defeated the 49ers in the Super Bowl three seasons ago, but the Niners will be happy he is wearing red and gold now. Smith spent his four seasons in the NFL with the Ravens before signing with the 49ers in March. Smith averages 16.9 yards per catch, and he is just what the 49ers needed as a deep-threat.

Fantasy Impact: Having a receiver like Smith will make the whole offense better. Smith is a fast receiver who will stretch the defense, something that the 49ers could not do with the likes of Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree (now signed with the Raiders). Smith has already gathered 3,591 receiving yards and 30 TDs in just 4 years. The 5th-year receiver will open room underneath for Boldin to go to work, and will be open for Kaepernick to find deep down the field. Smith will struggle at times against teams like Seattle or Arizona, but will enjoy playing against teams like Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Green Bay, New York and others. Smith is a great signing for the 49ers, and his production will be felt from the first game. If the 49ers grab a big, talented receiver in the draft to compliment the former-Ravens duo, this receiving corps could be something the Bay Area has not seen in far too long.

Fantasy Impact: If Colin Kaepernick can improve his deep ball accuracy, Smith could flirt with WR1 numbers next year.

Former Ravens Wide Receiver Torrey Smith has signed a 5 year deal worth 40 million dollars (22 million guaranteed) (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The Ravens now have a lack of a deep threat and must hope that their mostly unproven batch of receivers (besides Steve Smith) can step up. Look for receivers Marlon Brown and Kamar Aiken to try to fill Torrey Smith's shoes.

Another beloved player gets the "free agent bug" and leaves the nest. Veteran wide receiver Torrey Smith has negotiated a deal with the San Francisco 49ers, although he can't officially sign with the new team until 4pm on March 10, according to the teams' website. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Fantasy Impact: Torrey Smith has been a phenomenal player on the offensive side for four years. His best season was in 2013 when he made 65 receptions for 1,128 yards and four touchdowns. Last season, he fell into a slump with 49 receptions for a career low 767 yards but he got 11 touchdowns.


By Stacie Rigby, 49ers Correspondent, Wed, Feb 4th 7:40pm EST

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has been offered a 5-year, $35 million deal with a guaranteed $19 million. This averages out to $7 million per year. This offer was on the table before the beginning of the 2014 season, according to the team's website. Torrey Smith is a Baltimore favorite and a fast wide receiver. His offer is considered to be fair and according to, it is more than what Anquan Boldin, DeSean Jackson and Emmanuel Sanders had in 2014. (Source: CBS Sports)

Fantasy Impact: This four-year veteran will be an unrestricted free agent in March and he had an entire season to consider his offer. ESPN reports that he drew an NFL record of 12 pass-interference penalties for 261 yards. He had a season-ending 49 receptions for 767 yards and 11 touchdowns. This 6'0", 205 pound receiver has had only one slow season in his four-year career. Flacco considers him a good target and he comes through when it counts.

NFL Insider for CBS Jason La Canfora reported earlier today that the Ravens offered wide receiver Torrey Smith a 5-year $35 million contract with $19 million guaranteed before the season. (Source: CBS Local Baltimore)

Fantasy Impact: According to the article, the deal is comparable to that received by Eric Decker and Marques Colston. Despite posting career lows in targets, receptions, and yards, a career high 11 touchdowns salvaged the season for the speedy Smith. Look for him to remain in Baltimore, but he's a risky proposition going forward.

Veteran wide receiver Torrey Smith will be an unrestricted free agent this year. Head Coach John Harbaugh wants Smith to return, however, there is a mention of his dollar value. Smith had a slow season this year with 767 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. (Source: Baltimore Ravens )

Fantasy Impact: Smith's biggest season was in 2013 when he caught 65 passes for 1,128 yards. During the 2014 season he only suffered minimal knee injuries. This 25-year-old is comfortable, consistent target for Flacco and has never missed a game in his fourth season in the NFL. With only two fumbles in his career, he has become a high priority for his offense.


By Miguel Garcia, 49ers Correspondent, Sun, Jan 11th 9:07pm EST

In Saturday's Divisional Round matchup against the New England Patriots, Torrey Smith made 3 receptions on 6 targets for 62 yards.

Fantasy Impact: After a rough start to the season, Smith managed 682 receiving yards and a career-high 11 TD receptions in the remaining 11 games he played or recorded a catch in. Torrey Smith will be an Unrestricted Free Agent this offseason. Look for where he lands next to determine his value.


By Matthew Terelle, 49ers Correspondent, Mon, Jan 5th 10:15am EST

Torrey Smith only had two catches Saturday against the Steelers, but he made the most of them. Smith gained 28 yards on his two grabs and had a touchdown on six targets.

Fantasy Impact: Smith continues to do what he has done for most of the year, score touchdowns. He keeps getting the job done despite not always having a high number of catches. Smith has a date against Darrelle Revis, Brandon Browner, and the tough New England secondary on the horizon next week. The tough matchup makes him a fade on daily sites and for playoff fantasy leagues.


By Matthew Terelle, 49ers Correspondent, Mon, Dec 22nd 2:25pm EST

Torrey Smith had a stellar game Sunday against the Texans. He caught five passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns. He also tied for the team lead with 12 targets.

Fantasy Impact: Smith appears to be over his knee sprain which had limited his effectiveness the past few weeks. Smith is up to 10 touchdowns on the year and has really rewarded owners who stuck with him during his slow start to the season. The Ravens have a showdown with the Browns coming up in Week 17.


By Matthew Terelle, 49ers Correspondent, Mon, Dec 15th 4:31pm EST

Torrey Smith had a disappointing fantasy day Sunday against the Jaguars. He caught two passes for 16 yards on three targets.

Fantasy Impact: Smith has been struggling with a knee sprain as of late and it has affecting his output the past few games. Fantasy owners would be wise to keep him out of lineups unless he is a full participant in practice all week.

Ravens WR Torrey Smith is active for Baltimore's Week 15 game against Jacksonville. Smith is playing through a sprained knee so he may not be at full strength this week. (Source: NFL)

Fantasy Impact: Even a gimpy Smith may be worth a play against an inconsistent Jacksonville pass defense. Because of the injury, Smith should be considered a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 in this matchup.

Ravens WR Torrey Smith (sprained knee) is formally listed as probable for Baltimore's Week 15 game against the Jaguars. Pro Football Talk cites a source with knowledge of the situation who indicates that Smith will be a gametime decision. (Source: ProFootballTalk)

Fantasy Impact: This is an important call folks. If you are playing a meaningful fantasy game in Week 15 and considering starting Smith, it is critical that you check the inactives report ahead of the game.

After suffering a sprained knee, early reports indicate Torrey Smith is expected to miss Sunday's game. (Source: Aaron Wilson)

Fantasy Impact: The news is saddening for owners, especially after Torrey Smith was heating up after a prolonged period of subpar play. Owners now have a heads-up and can look for other options.

Torrey Smith is officially being considered day to day with a right knee sprain. Coach John Harbaugh did confirm that there is nothing torn in his knee. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Smith hasn't missed a game during his career, playing in 61 straight games, but that streak could be coming to an end this weekend. Smith was injured during Week 13 and was active last week, but was held without a catch. Owners should keep a close eye on his practice participation this week.

Fantasy Impact: Uh-oh, the recently resurgent Smith just doesn't seem right, and is going to be limited in Week 14. Play at your own risk, but the prudent fantasy manager would quickly explore other options.


By Dale Redman, 49ers Correspondent, Sun, Dec 7th 11:53am EST

Despite looking stiff and uncomfortable in warm-ups, Torrey Smith is active for Week 14 against Miami. Smith has been hampered with a knee injury this week, he was listed as probable on the injury report. (Source: CBS Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Smith is coming off a 2 TD performance in Week 13. After a slow start he has been hot in his last 4 games, averaging 75 yards and 1 TD per game. Facing a tough Dolphins pass defense and still being hampered with the knee injury, Smith is a risky play. He is a WR3 at best. I would lean towards benching Smith if you have a decision to make.


By Phil Falvo, 49ers Correspondent, Thu, Dec 4th 9:27pm EST

Torrey Smith didn't practice for a second consecutive day, but said he'd have to be on crutches to miss the game on Sunday. (Source: Luke Jones on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Earlier in the week, Coach John Harbaugh downplayed the severity of Smith's knee injury. With another practice in the books and no practice time, Smith may be a game-time decision. Players often overestimate their ability to return form injury. You will want to watch his status closely for this Sunday.


By Phil Falvo, 49ers Correspondent, Tue, Dec 2nd 1:22pm EST

Raven's Coach John Harbaugh told the Baltimore Sun that wide receiver Torrey Smith didn't have anything too serious. (Source: NBC Sports/Pro Football Talk)

Fantasy Impact: Heading into Week 14, the Ravens face a Dolphins defense that is ranked second in passing yards per game, and that gave up 277 yards rushing to an abysmal Jets rushing attack in Week 13. Expect a run-heavy attack from Baltimore, who is averaging 131.8 yards per game on the ground. Monitor the practice schedule, but if you have better options Torrey Smith is a sit candidate for Week 14.


By Miguel Garcia, 49ers Correspondent, Sun, Nov 9th 4:25pm EST

This last Sunday against the Tennessee Titans included Torrey Smith catching the ball 5 times on 8 targets with a TD.

Fantasy Impact: As of late, Torrey Smith has been a good play(when he is not getting checked out for a possible concussion). He has 5 touchdowns in 5 weeks. Look for him to continue this type of play after the Ravens' bye week.


By Miguel Garcia, 49ers Correspondent, Wed, Nov 5th 4:00pm EST

After a down season in terms of catches and yards, WR Torrey Smith feels he is improving. He admitted to the frustration he had during the beginning of the season, but his outlook on the rest of the season is still positive. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: After having one of the best games of the season(4 catches for 63 yards and a TD), Smith is on a 4 game hot-streak. He has 4 TDs in 4 weeks on 11 catches and 195 yards. Although he is going against a tough Titans secondary, Smith may still be able to add to the TD category, making him a decent play this week.


By Miguel Garcia, 49ers Correspondent, Sun, Oct 26th 6:46pm EDT

This Sunday against the Bengals Torrey Smith failed to make any catches, He was held to no receptions on two targets. He left the game at one point due to a concussion concern, but ultimately returned.

Fantasy Impact: Struggling against the Bengals is something Torrey Smith is used to in his career, but it has been far worse this year than at any other point. He is in fact on pace for the worst statistical output of his career in terms of yardage and receptions.


By Miguel Garcia, 49ers Correspondent, Sun, Oct 19th 10:42pm EDT

This past week Torrey Smith had 3 receptions on 5 targets for 81 yards and a TD.

Fantasy Impact: This game marked the first time all season that Torrey Smith had more than 60 yards receiving. Next week the Ravens play the Cincinnati Bengals, who Smith has struggled with throughout his career. But given the Bengals' recent woeful defensive performances, he may be poised for a solid day.


By Andy Holloway, 49ers Correspondent, Sun, Oct 19th 10:41pm EDT

Torrey Smith had 3 catches for 81 yards and a touchdown against a porous Atlanta secondary on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Smith salvaged his fantasy day with a jaw-dropping over the shoulder 39 yard touchdown from Joe Flacco in the fourth quarter on Sunday. It seems the Ravens are interested in revitalizing Smith, but he's nothing more than a lottery ticket at this point.


By Miguel Garcia, 49ers Correspondent, Tue, Oct 7th 3:34am EDT

On Sunday against the Colts Torrey Smith had 3 catches for 38 yards. This low yardage total puts Smith's stat line at a paltry 11-176-1.

Fantasy Impact: Although Torrey Smith was tied for the team lead in targets he failed to make the most of the opportunities. His two drops(including one on a 4th-and-3) are adding to the frustration. His ability to draw pass interference penalties do help his team, but not fantasy owners.


By Miguel Garcia, 49ers Correspondent, Thu, Sep 25th 4:22am EDT

For Torrey Smith, last Sunday's stat sheet against the Browns read 2 catches on 8 targets for 25 yards. This puts T. Smith at 6 receptions for 85 yards on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Although early, it appears Torrey Smith isn't making the most of his opportunities with the ball. His 8 targets were 1 more than Steve Smith, who still ended up with 101 yards. Regarding the injury to TE Dennis Pitta, wait for the situation to develop before starting Torrey Smith. Owen Daniels(Pitta's backup) is a proven commodity in the Gary Kubiak style of offense and this may not allow for as many extra opportunities for Torrey Smith as owners would like.


By Miguel Garcia, 49ers Correspondent, Tue, Sep 9th 2:10am EDT

Smith had a tough time Sunday getting open against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was only targeted 7 times out of QB Joe Flacco's whopping 62 attempts. Smith also had 2 drops to go with his 3 receptions. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: The addition of Steve Smith Jr. and return of Dennis Pitta may appear to hinder Torrey Smith's fantasy ability (they went for 30 targets combined), but look for defenses to guard Steve Smith and Dennis Pitta more closely after Week 1. Torrey Smith is still the Raven's biggest deep threat and should be kept on rosters for a bit longer.


By Andy Holloway, 49ers Correspondent, Tue, Jul 29th 7:27pm EDT

Despite heading into the final year of his rookie contract, Torrey Smith and the Ravens have yet to carve out a new deal, and sources say they're not close. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Smith's targets and yards have increased every season thus far in his young career. If he can boost his touchdown number this season, he could be a value pick at his current ADP of 67.

WalterFootball | Aug 4th
Anquan Boldin has the nice floor this season, but Smith is the one with the risky upside. This offense is going to be fighting an uphill battle this year and projecting two 49er receivers to have good seasons seems a bit crazy, but Smith is the upside play for their receivers.
Breaking Football | Aug 3rd
I love Smith's explosive nature but the 49ers are not a great place for him to improve.
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru | Aug 3rd
The 49ers pass game should change a bit in 2015 and Smith will draw many deep targets as Anquan Boldin is no longer the deep threat he used to be. He will not be the most consistent WR but will have some big games next year.
The NY Times | Aug 3rd
Talented downfield threat but upside limited by run-first offense as the Niners ranked 29th in pass attempts last season.
FFLockerRoom | Aug 1st
Torrey is on his way to San Francisco to join his former teammate Anquan Boldin. I don't think this changes his value much but hopefully Kaep can locate him for the deep balls.
RotoBaller | Jul 31st
I just don't believe Torrey Smith fits with Kaepernick in any beneficial way.
