Smith is who he is, but Andy Reid can make that work, especially with Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe. Gus Bradley is going to help the Jaguars get better on defense, but the lack of playmakers is going to make his job tough. The Jaguars were dead last in sacks with 20 last season and there's not much hope of that number dramatically increasing. Add that to the fact that the Chiefs have a strong offensive line and Smith should have plenty of time to execute Reid's West Coast offense, which fi...

Smith has a lot to prove in 2013. After losing his starting job to Kaepernick he has reunited with Andy Reid who are both in the middle of the Broken Dreams path. These two are good for eachother, but the Chiefs really only have Dwayne Bowe in the passing game. While Bowe should have a good bounce back year, he cannot support a QBs numbers like Megatron/Marshall.Locker has a motivated Kenny Britt in a contract year. IF anyone lost more value in their potential contract over the last two years, Britt is easily that man. He is on a mission to prove he is the man, the problem with that is Kendall Wright/Nate Washington are both solid WRs. We already know Locker has a man crush on Washington. With all that being said, Locker has the options to have a good season, he is still a bit raw.

It's a good matchup but I'll need to see Smith put up numbers before I believe in him too much.I love Locker's upside this year, but not on the road against the Steelers.

Smith is a good fit for Andy Reid's offense   
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Sports Empire
Jacksonville gave up the 16th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 17.2.Pittsburgh gave up the 4th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 12.6.  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Smith is nothing more than a game manager, and his "improved" numbers over the last few years still reflect that. Pretty ordinary guy.I like Jake Locker, and hopefully the rumors that the Titans will be implementing more zone-reads in their offense is true, because Locker can truly thrive in a situation such as that. An improved offensive line and a solid group of receivers should help him out, as well. Sleeper.
