Steve Smith | WR

2011 Fantasy Football Outlook: If we learned anything from the lockout this off- season, it was that a deal isn’t done until the deal is done. That was the case with Steve Smith as it was assumed that he would likely re-sign a one-year deal with the Giants, but in the end, he opted to take more money but signing with the Eagles.

While early talk has Smith possibly being ready by some point in September, consider it just that, as he should land on the PUP list and miss the first six games of the season. Smith was brought in because of concerns about Jeremy Maclin, and the Eagles have Super Bowl aspirations so they are willing to wait to pick up a key slot receiver during the middle of the year.

It will likely take Smith some time to actually play at the level we watch perform at with the Giants, so don’t expect much from him this season for fantasy leagues. Early reactions have Smith upwards to a top 45 receiver for fantasy leagues, but if he’s selected at your draft, he will likely be an early-season release onto the waiver wire.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

June 2011 – Before Smith Signed With The Eagles

Steve Smith came into last season as a No.2 receiver for fantasy football owners after he broke out for over 100 receptions and 1,200 yards in 2009. While Smith was the Giants No.1 receiver last season, it was clear Hakeem Nicks was ready to take over that title after his three touchdown performance to open the year.

Smith went on to struggle with injuries and eventually missed the final month of the season with a knee injury that required microfracture surgery. Heading into the summer, Smith his slowly coming back from the injury and full expects to re-sign with the Giants as he’s a free agent this off-season. Expected to start the season on the PUP list, Smith isn’t a draft-able option as you should look to Mario Manningham as a sleeper this season.

2010 Preview

Steve Smith became the top target for Eli Manning last year. While Smith will be the first Giants receiver drafted, he may suffer in production to Nicks and Manningham stealing opportunities from him. The Giants may also try and run the football more because throwing it didn’t get them into the post season.

2010 Fantasy Football Outlook

2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Every year we have different wide receivers that breakout and have a great year in their third season. Steve Smith was one of those players as he posted 107 receptions for over 1,200 yards receiving and seven touchdowns.

This production made Smith the clear favorite target of Eli Manning in the Giants passing attack as he became an every week fantasy play.

Audio: WR Steve Smith | 2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings

2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: New York is primed to throw the football again in 2010 as Manning is ready to be the true leader of this offense. Smith should benefit as he is the possession receiver on this team, and should post over 90 receptions once again.

Hakeem Nicks may end up being the most explosive receiver on this team at some point but Smith should continue to have good fantasy value throughout the next few seasons. Look for Smith as your No.2 fantasy receiver this year and he should provide you with solid production.

In ppr leagues Smith obviously has added value for that scoring format so bump him up a couple spots in your rankings if you’re in a league like that.
