Considered a raw prospect who possessed outstanding speed coming out of Maryland, the Ravens 2011 2nd round pick burst onto the scene with a monstrous Week 3 performance against the Rams, catching five passes for 152 yards and three touchdowns and having another scored called back because of a penalty. Letís just say that Lee Evansí early season injury turned out to be a blessing in disguise. While Smith proved to be inconsistent, he still managed to finish the season with 50 receptions for 841 yards and seven touchdowns, despite being targeted just once in the teamís first two games. He takes over as the teamís top threat at wide receiver in 2012 and figures to approach 1,000 yards and be around the seven-touchdown mark once again. Consider Smith a mid-tier WR3 with a big upside for the upcoming season.

FF Today's Take:Ellington carved out a starting role this preseason and was gaining momentum in the fantasy community before last week's injury. Jeremy Kerley has been added for depth but the 49ers have one of the weakest group of receivers in the league. Torrey Smith and TE Vance McDonald are the only fantasy considerations among the group.
