"This is to notify you that as of today, I, Steve Smith Sr., will no longer be antagonizing defensive backs. I am retiring from the National Football League."
In his illustrious 16-year career, Smith made five Pro Bowls and was named First Team All-Pro twice. He is 12th in career receptions (1,031), 7th in receiving yards (14,731) and 26th in touchdowns (81). He will be missed.
BAL WR Steve L Smith - Week 17, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Cincinnati
Steve Smith Sr. had a nice game against the Steelers last week, catching seven passes for 79 yards and a touchdown. It was his second straight week finding the end zone, and he’s been targeted at least six times in four straight games.
This week, he’ll face a Bengals defense that has been above average against the pass this year. While Smith has a fairly high floor (over 50 yards in all but five games this season), he is fairly touchdown dependent since he’s only had one game over 100 yards this year. Fantasy owners should consider him a low-risk, low-reward WR3 option to close out the season.
