Newark Star-Ledger - [Full Article]

All has been quiet on the Steve Smith free-agency front so far. Given his injury situation after suffering cartilage damage in his knee late last year, the wide receiver hasn't signed or gone on any visits.

Until now. And the first stop will be a familiar one.

Smith is scheduled to fly to New Jersey from California and meet with the Giants early this week. He will catch up with the front office and the coaching staff, get a sense of where everything stands financially and perhaps provide an update on his medical situation.

Smith doesn't have any other visits scheduled at this point. It's unclear what kind of time frame there will be for his signing or a return to the field.

Fantasy Impact: 

Even if Smith returns to the Giants, the odds are that he'll miss a decent portion of the season. Mario Manningham is in line for a big role due to Smith's shaky status and could bring nice dividends to those drafting him.
