I'm not a Joe Flacco fan, but I am a Torrey Smith fan. If Flacco were Rodgers, Smith would be a top-5 receiver, but he's not. But that also means you might be able to get him at a discount and with his ability his upside is still high. And in Kubiak's offense a deep threat is key.
 
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Poised to finally deliver on his potential and vie for a top-12 finish; had massive target total last year but pedestrian catch rate
Will push for WR2 numbers despite Alex Smith
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Stats suggest a plateau, but he's still young enough to make a major leap.
Playoff game vs. Colts reminded us of his talent, but Alex Smith a limiting factor.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Matured into a reliable top threat last year. Extra talent around him should only help.
Bowe still has the size and ball skills to be a factor. Chiefs need to try harder to get him the ball.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Smith was disappointing at times last year, but he still finished as the 20th ranked fantasy receiver with 65 receptions for 1,128 yards and four receiving touchdowns. A more consistent QB Joe Flacco would help Smith be more consistent.
Bowe played better in the second half of the season and if QB Alex Smith can play like he did in the second half of the season, Bowe could return to fantasy prominence in 2014. Bowe has reportedly lost weight and is down to 212 lbs., which could make him a fantasy bargain this year.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
Smith is clearly the Ravens’ top receiver, becoming the franchise’s first receiver to top 1,000 yards since Derrick Mason did it in 2009 and the first over 1,100 yards since Qadry Ismail did it in 1999. But even with that accomplishment there are some concerns about his lack of consistency. Despite his potential, Smith was a liability over the past two seasons with 10 games over 10 Fantasy points out of 32. Of more concern is his catch rate, he caught just 45.8 percent of his targets over his last two seasons. Last year he caught the lowest percentage of targets of any receiver with 100 or more passes thrown their way. And he scored 4 touchdowns despite seeing a total of 16 red-zone targets.
Bowe had one of the worst years of his career in 2013 with 57 catches for 673 yards and 5 touchdowns. He reached double digits in standard Fantasy points just 5 times, and he looked nothing like a No. 1 receiver. Now, Bowe could easily rebound this year. He hired a nutritionist and a personal trainer for the first time in his career, and he’ll have another year in Reid’s system working with Smith. But Bowe has to prove himself first, and he enters this season as a low-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver at best.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
There is no doubt that he will put up 1,000+ yards and nearly double digit TD's in 2014.
He did terrible in yardage last year, but still found the end-zone 5 times. Expect a bounce back year this year as Bowe becomes more involved.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
New OC Kubiak will help break Smith out of his one dimensional/deep threat role.
Was a total ghost until late in the year when Smith finally felt comfortable throwing downfield.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
In each of his 3 NFL Seasons, Smith has played all 16 Games. New OC Gary Kubiak will look to use Smith as an Andre Johnson type in 2014, with Steve Smith taking on the Kevin Walter role. It has been talked about within the Ravens Organization that rather being simply a deep threat, Smith will be used in shorter routes and will no doubt see an increase in both Receptions (65 in 2013) and Receiving Yards (1128 in 2013). The Ravens Offense was anemic in 2013 and Torrey Smith’s 4 TDs and only two +100 Yard Games should speak volumes. Smith is also in a contract season which should also propel more success in 2014. Smith has a juicy matchup in Week 15 (Fantasy Playoff Game) at home against a bad JAX pass Defense. Bradley’s Jacksonville Seahawks don’t have Seattle touch just yet.
Bowe is down about 20 pounds this season due to a strict Offseason Diet which resulted from his “extremely hard training this year.” Bowe is set to turn 30 this season in an Offseason that restricts Bowe’s production with Alex Smith throwing him the ball. He remains a low end WR3 with a higher ceiling as he will remain a major Red Zone Target.
