There is a non-zero risk that Smith gets released because he's only due $500,000 guaranteed, but as long as he makes the Eagles final roster, Smith should be the top deep threat for Carson Wentz. Even if he only reels in two or three long scores, those plays alone will make him worth the very late pick he costs in best ball drafts. If he has a true bounceback (it's not impossible at 28), he'll be one of the steals of your best ball draft.

Summary

It's time to stop overstating Torrey Smith's capabilities. His $40-million contract with the 49ers will go down in history as one of the worst after two seasons led to a combined 53 receptions for 930 yards and seven touchdowns. He caught 20 passes in 2016 in spite of starting 12 games. Smith has never been a polished receiver; his career best catch rate is just 53%. What he does do, particularly as part of a robust offense, is provide a deep vertical threat that forces defenses to play the entire field. In that capacity, Smith's role in Philadelphia makes sense. Smith will 'start' opposite Alshon Jeffery but he'll rank no better than 4th in the passing tree. Carson Wentz struggled on deep passes last year, and Smith will help there while also opening up space for Darren Sproles, Zach Ertz and Jordan Matthews to work short- and intermediate routes. Smith is a fantasy non-factor, but might be a key piece to strengthening the outlook for his teammates. (July 15)
