Torrey Smith caught 2-of-5 targets for 54 yards in San Francisco's Week 4 loss to the Packers.
Smith made an impressive 47-yard catch down the right sideline in the second half, but was otherwise completely invisible as Colin Kapernick fell off the face of the earth. The one-dimensional deep threat finds himself on pace for 36/740/4 through his first four games as a 49er. There will be big games, but much like they were in Baltimore, they'll be extremely hard to predict. Smith will be a WR4 against the Giants next Sunday night. Oct 4 - 8:22 PM

Torrey Smith was held catch-less on two targets in the 49ers' Week 3 loss to the Cardinals.

Rather than stick Patrick Peterson on more-productive teammate Anquan Boldin, the Cardinals gave Torrey the Peterson treatment and Smith was all but eliminated from the 49ers' offense. A boom-or-bust weekly fantasy commodity, Torrey will be no more than a dart-throw fantasy option when the 49ers take on the Packers in Week 4. Truthfully, we wouldn't be surprised to see Smith hit fantasy waiver wires in most leagues this week.

Torrey Smith (knee) is probable for Week 3.

Smith went down late in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh, but practiced in full this week. His 6/120/1 Week 2 line was inflated by 91 of his yards in the second half. Smith is a boom/bust WR4.

Torrey Smith (knee) is practicing fully this week.

Smith hobbled off late in last week's loss to Pittsburgh, after posting a garbage-time-fueled 6-120-1 receiving line against the Steelers. It looks like he's fine. Smith, as usual, can be expected to have a highly inconsistent fantasy season, which severely curbs his appeal in weekly re-draft leagues.
Sep 23 - 9:19 PM

Torrey Smith caught 6-of-7 targets for 120 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 2 loss to Pittsburgh.

Smith was quiet until a fourth-quarter drive where he followed up a 75-yard touchdown bomb with a two-point conversion, ending up with a strong fantasy box score, even if it came in garbage time with San Francisco down three scores. Smith limped off late in the game. Coming off a 1-11 game in the opener, Torrey is likely to remain highly inconsistent in San Francisco. He was always a better best-ball fantasy pick than re-draft selection. The 49ers visit Arizona next.
Sep 20 - 4:18 PM

Torrey Smith gathered one catch for 11 yards in the 49ers' Week 1 win over the Vikings.

He was targeted three times. A boom-or-bust fantasy option throughout his career in Baltimore, Smith's first game as a 49er was more of the same. Smith's inconsistency should scare most fantasy owners away next week against the Steelers.
Sep 15 - 1:53 AM

Torrey Smith caught one pass for five yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

Kaepernick only attempted five passes on the game, so there were not many opportunities for Smith to make noise. The reception was actually Smith's first of the preseason. Smith will be a boom-or-bust WR4 this season.
Aug 29 - 11:59 PM

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows predicts Torrey Smith will finish with under 750 receiving yards this season.

It would represent a career low for Smith, whose receiving totals in four years with Baltimore were 841, 855, 1,128, and 767. Keep in mind beat writers don't always have a great handle on the numbers side of things, but we still found this noteworthy. Torrey's current re-draft ADP is late in the eighth round.
Jun 5 - 12:49 PM

Torrey Smith dropped 18.33 percent of his catchable targets last season.

Smith had the second-most drops (11) among receivers despite ranking 50th in targets (89). He was only outdone by Mohamed Sanu, who dropped 14 passes on 97 targets. We like Smith's new landing spot for the 49ers' offense, but Colin Kaepernick's shoddy accuracy isn't going to benefit Smith. Anquan Boldin should remain the go-to target in the middle of the field, on third downs, and in the red zone. Smith may be more of a decoy lid-lifter just to open up the field.
Apr 16 - 10:33 AM

49ers signed WR Torrey Smith, formerly of the Ravens, to a five-year, $40 million contract that includes $22 million guaranteed.

This deal has been in place for a couple days. Smith gives Colin Kaepernick what he's desperately been missing outside: a speed threat who can run by a defensive back and score a long touchdown. In San Francisco, Smith will reunite with his mentor Anquan Boldin and stretch the field for he and Vernon Davis. Kaepernick's big arm and Smith's blazing speed should complement each other.
Mar 10 - 4:42 PM

ESPN's Jim Trotter reports the 49ers are "feeling good" about their chances of signing free agent Torrey Smith, but that they're "holding their breath" until Tuesday.

The Baltimore Sun has reported that Smith-to-San Fran is a "done deal," but it doesn't appear this one is quite as done as Frank Gore, Ndamukong Suh, etc. Smith would be a rare talent addition for a club that's been bleeding it all offseason.
Mar 9 - 12:37 PM

One source told the Baltimore Sun that free agent Torrey Smith signing with the 49ers is a "done deal."

It can't hurt that Torrey has stayed tight with Anquan Boldin since playing across from him in Baltimore. The Sun floats $8 million to $9 million annually as Smith's likely price range. The Ravens are less than $5 million under the cap and couldn't match such an offer. The Sun also confirms Andre Johnson "would be regarded as a potential fit" to replace Torrey opposite Steve Smith Sr.
Mar 8 - 7:54 PM

Free agent Torrey Smith wrote on his blog that he will not be returning to the Ravens.

The expectation is that he'll sign with the 49ers. As Jeremy Maclin and Torrey are easily the top-two wide receivers left in free agency, Smith figures to command a hefty sum. We'd guess he ends up in the $8 million-per-year range. The Ravens will need to find a new bookend for 36-year-old Steve Smith Sr. Andre Johnson makes sense as a short-term stopgap, but Baltimore would be wise to use an early-round draft pick at wideout, as well.
Mar 8 - 7:14 PM

Updating an earlier item, ESPN's Adam Caplan believes the 49ers will sign free agent Torrey Smith "unless the money is too rich for them."

We suppose you could say that about any team in pursuit of a free agent, but it's clear the 49ers are zeroing in on the 26-year-old deep threat. Caplan is a very reliable reporter. Per Caplan, the Colts and Texans are also interested in Smith. With Randall Cobb off the market, Smith is Rotoworld's No. 2 free agent receiver. His arrival would ensure Michael Crabtree walks.
Mar 8 - 2:09 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the 49ers are "very interested" in free agent WR Torrey Smith.

Smith would give the 49ers a deep threat to complement Anquan Boldin. With Michael Crabtree leaving in free agency and Stevie Johnson a candidate for release, San Francisco is one of the league's most receiver-needy teams. Smith is Rotoworld's No. 3 available wideout behind Randall Cobb and Jeremy Maclin.
