2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-02-2014 by Rob Warner

A second round pick from the 2011 NFL Draft (No. 58 overall) posted a career-best season in 2013, finishing with 65 catches for 1,128 yards and four touchdowns. That collective performance ranked him as the 21st-best fantasy WR in his first season as Baltimore's No. 1 WR. His 1,100-plus yards was the first time a Raven hit that mark since Qadry Ismail in 1999. Improving a pedestrian catch rate (just 46-percent over the past two seasons) could take his fantasy value to the next level. He has averaged an impressive 17 yards per catch over his first three seasons and new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak has a solid track record of getting elite production from his No. 1 wide receiver (Andre Johnson in Houston). The younger member of the Ravens' Smith duo is entering a contract year and his ADP (WR27, 60.03) make him a solid WR3 who is drafted in late Round 5 or early Round 6. Many of the No. 1 receivers in this range of the draft are on bad teams; however, Flacco is probably the best (or at least generally reliable) QB throwing to these WRs out of the bunch (NYJ Eric Decker - Geno Smith, TEN Kendall Wright - Jake Locker, and MIA Mike Wallace - Ryan Tannehill).

Editor's note: In order for Smith to really take the next step in his development, he must be able to contribute more as a possession receiver and not almost solely as a deep threat. While his speed and ability to stretch the field serve a great purpose, the Ravens lacked the No. 2 or 3 receivers to maximize this strategy last season. Steve Smith will be tasked to work the short and intermediate routes and find the open areas in coverage. (Torrey) Smith does provide some upside too because if he can improve on his aforementioned catch rate, his numbers could enjoy a serious uptick.
