Richard Sherman and the Seahawks pass defense shut him down last season with Cam Newton targeting Smith 13 times and him only catching 4 of those for 40 yards and no touchdowns. Iíll be shying away from targeting any receiver facing Sherman this season.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
At age 33, Smith is in the physical shape of a 25 year old. The 1,000 yard season should be there, but youíre looking at a WR who gives you minimal TDs Ė (4 TDs in 2012). Smith is a good 2WR and a strong 3WR option.
 
  
Staff Rankings
FFLockerRoom
Smith has never posted consecutive seasons with less than 7 touchdowns since 2001-02 (throwing out 2004 when he got hurt in Week 1). Smith's age makes him a bit scary as he'll be 34 when the season starts but he's still worth drafting as a No. 2 Fantasy WR with a pick starting in Round 6.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Seattle corners are brutal, so Smith may not be an elite option this week.

Steve Smith is a burner. He is also the clear #1 WR for Cam Newton who will be unstoppable in 2013. While Smith has been plagued by Cam's inconsistency in 2012, we all know that Smith can be a 1300 Yard/13 TD WR. Cam is on a mission, and it all starts with throwing the ball deep to Steve.
Edelman is going to be the Patriots #2 WR. He was very good last season before getting injured as he was a consistent 60 Yards with the likely TD when he played. Julian is very similar to Wes Welker, just about half the talent. His big frame will get him some nice Fantasy numbers over the middle, Brady is very comfortable with him as well. No homo on that one.
