 Lots of offseason praise for the weapons in St. Louis, time to see what Bradford can do with them.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
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...   
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
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.The Rams left Bradford with a rookie version of Percy Harvin and Jared Cook. No more Amendola, who was Bradfords first and only main man throughout his career. I'm sure Bradford will be able to adjust, but it might take a year for this young group to get it together. No more Steven Jackson makes this Bradford's team. His defense is good enough to make him competitive.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
It's a good matchup but I'll need to see Smith put up numbers before I believe in him too much.This one could go either way but at least Bradford is at home and has weapons.

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.BENCH - Arizona gave up the 3rd fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 12.3.  
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.Bradford has had to work behind one of the NFL's worst offensive lines for several years now, so there's no telling what kind of player he'd be if he was actually afforded the time to throw the ball. The addition of Jake Long should help that a bit, and the versatile Tavon Austin should add a new wrinkle to things, as well. Bradford is a solid sleeper in for a good year, I'm thinking.
