PHI WR Torrey Smith - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Los Angeles Chargers

Torrey Smith is the kind of deep threat that needs to hit a home run touchdown to cash in for fantasy lineups. You can't start him because he'll be very inconsistent on a weekly basis. That includes Week 4. He's already had two games with less than seven fantasy points (PPR).

PHI WR Torrey Smith - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. New York Giants

Smith is among the NFL leaders in average depth of target, but the deep threat will be a weekly boom-or-bust option most likely in this offense, depending on if Carson Wentz can actually connect with him. Wentz has a deep ball completion percentage that's 19th in the NFL. The smart play is to keep Smith out of lineups in Week 3, as the nature of his role will not lead to weekly consistency.

PHI WR Torrey Smith - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Kansas City Chiefs

just 3 targets and 1 reception for Torrey Smith in Week 1 for 30 yards. He is the deep threat in this offense, which will lead to weekly fantasy inconsistency. You can't start him in Week 2 against the Chiefs with any confidence. Kansas City is ranked 14th in aFPA vs. PPR WRs.

PHI WR Torrey Smith - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 at Washington

Reports say shutdown corner Josh Norman will draw the Alshon Jeffery assignment for Week 1, giving Smith a chance to be more effective against Bashaud Breeland. Smith is likely a boom-or-bust option though, needing a long score to be fantasy relevant. He should not be in your lineups.

PHI WR Torrey Smith - 2017 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

In Baltimore, Torrey Smith was very consistent, finishing in the WR23—WR30 range of PPR scoring in each of his first four seasons. However, Smith was a poor fit in San Francisco, given the 49ers' bad quarterback play. Now in Philadelphia, the still only 28-year-old receiver and his elite speed is in an offense needing that on the outside.

Fantasy Downside

It remains to be seen if Smith is a good fit for Carson Wentz's inconsistent deep ball. Wentz was only 26th in completion percentage on throws 20+ yards downfield.

2017 Bottom Line

Smith is the kind of home run hitter that could give you a few good weeks in best-ball leagues, especially in the 19th round of MFL10s. However, when lineup decisions and consistency come into play in redraft leagues, it's better to take a wait-and-see approach to his new role in Philadelphia, considering he'll likely be available on the waiver wire.

SF WR Torrey Smith - Week 10, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Arizona
There is absolutely no reason you should have Smith on your roster, let alone your roster at this point.

SF WR Torrey Smith - Week 9, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. New Orleans
After showing some signs of life with seven targets in Colin Kapernick's first start, Smith came crashing back down to earth in his second start before the bye, as Smith got just two targets and one catch for 17 yards. Maybe a bye week to work on that will help, as New Orleans' defense has also given up some deep shots, as well. All of that said, you can't use Smith as anything more than a flex play with some upside given his usage thus far this season.
