Panthers acquire WR Torrey Smith via trade

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Looking to overhaul their receiving room, the Carolina Panthers have acquired Torrey Smith from the Eagles in exchange for cornerback Daryl Worley, sources told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Friday.

Smith rolls into Carolina with a chance to make an impact for an offense that also boasts Devin Funchess, Russell Shepard and second-year speedster Curtis Samuel at the position. Smith isn't the deep threat he once was, but he gives quarterback Cam Newton an experienced downfield target to play with.

Fantasy Impact:

Smith isn't a fantasy factor right now, but it's not inconceivable that he could have a Ted Ginn-type year in Carolina.

Scouting Report

Week 2 at Atlanta Falcons

Devin Funchess gained 41 yards on three receptions last week against a surprisingly stingy Cowboys pass defense. Funchess was targeted five times—a number that should increase in games where the Panthers are forced to throw the ball more frequently. The Dallas offense looked pitiful.

This week, Funchess will face a Falcons defense that held the Eagles passing game in check last week but lost two of their best defenders to season-ending injuries. Funchess is still risky because of the additional options available and the inconsistency of the Panthers passing offense, but he has some WR3 potential in deeper leagues.
