Torrey Smith is retiring from the NFL.
A second-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Smith spent his first four seasons in Baltimore, catching 213 passes for 3,591 and 30 touchdowns from Joe Flacco, and his time there included a Super Bowl victory. After that, he spent two years in San Francisco, one in Philadelphia (where he won another ring), and his final season in Carolina—finishing his career with 319 receptions, 5,141 yards, and 41 touchdowns. One of the league's best deep threats when he was with the Ravens, Smith may have continued putting up big numbers with Flacco throwing passes because the two had great chemistry, but he became more of a role player after leaving Baltimore. The 30-year-old seems likely to take a high-profile job in the public arena.
The Panthers have released Torrey Smith, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Carolina needed a roster spot after acquiring Ray-Ray McCloud off waivers, so the veteran deep threat will now be a free agent. Smith might actually have a better chance at a role elsewhere, but he's not currently on the fantasy radar.
Torrey Smith held without a catch in season finale.
Smith was targeted once. The veteran caught just 17 passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns in his first season with the Panthers, and chances are probably against his club option being picked up for 2019.
Torrey Smith catches one pass in Week 16.
Smith gained 19 yards on his lone reception against the Falcons. He's been injured for most of the season, but this was Smith's first reception since Week 6. The veteran receiver is not a recommended fantasy option next week against the Buccaneers.
Torrey Smith did not catch a pass in Week 12.
Smith returned from his knee injury after missing the last four games, but he didn't make a big impact. The veteran receiver isn't a recommended fantasy option right now.
Torrey Smith (knee) is active for Week 12.
Smith missed the last four games, but his return comes at a good time with Devin Funchess (back) out. The veteran receiver isn’t a recommended fantasy option in his first game back, but he does have big-play ability to potentially make an impact.
Torrey Smith (knee) has been ruled out for Week 11.
This was the expectation heading into the week, and Carolina will once again roll with D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel, and Jarius Wright behind Devin Funchess. Detroit was just dominated by Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller, so Moore and Samuel in particular are worth considering as big-play FLEX options.
Torrey Smith (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday against the Ravens.
Smith was off the fantasy radar despite his clutch catch in Carolina's Week 7 win at Philadelphia. This could mean more snaps for Curtis Samuel and D.J. Moore alongside with clear No. 1 receiver Devin Funchess. Hopefully Smith's knee doesn't keep him out for much longer than this week.
Torrey Smith comes up big in 21-17 victory over the Eagles.
Smith caught four passes for 61 yards, including three passes over Carolina's final two drives, with the highlight being a 35-yard catch-and-run to help set up the team's game-winning touchdown. The veteran deep threat has made plays in each of the past two weeks, but he's not a recommended fantasy option heading into a matchup with the Ravens.
Torrey Smith scores in loss to the Redskins.
Smith caught five-of-five targets for 43 yards and a score, also adding a two-point conversion. The eight points for the veteran came on back-to-back plays in the fourth quarter that brought Carolina within a field goal, but Washington extended the lead to six points with their own field goal, and the Panthers ended up stalling in the red zone to end the game. Smith faces his former team next Sunday in Philadelphia, but isn't a recommended fantasy option behind Christian McCaffrey, Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen, and D.J. Moore for looks.
Torrey Smith held without a reception in Week 5 win.
Smith was targeted once and seemed to be hobbled at one point. The 29-year-old has just seven receptions for 67 yards and a score through four games, so he's not a recommended fantasy option and could see his playing time scaled back in favor of D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel.
Torrey Smith caught three passes for 19 yards in Sunday's win over the Bengals.
Smith scored in Week 2, but he's yet to crack 35+ yards heading into Carolina's Week 4 bye. He won't be a recommended fantasy option when the Panthers return to face the Giants in a couple weeks.
Torrey Smith scores in loss to the Falcons.
Smith caught three passes for 33 yards, including a three-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. The veteran receiver will probably see a lot of William Jackson in next week's matchup with the Bengals, so he isn't a recommended fantasy option.
Torrey Smith catches one pass in Panthers debut.
It went for 15 yards. Smith is currently locked in as a starter for Carolina, but he isn't a recommended fantasy option, and D.J. Moore could push him out of the starting lineup as the season progresses.
The Panthers are acquiring Torrey Smith from the Eagles, according to Adam Schefter.
Philadelphia is getting cornerback Daryl Worley in exchange for Smith, and the trade won't become official until the start of the new league year on Wednesday. For Carolina, Smith gives them a veteran receiver that can stretch the field, and he should be good in both the receivers room and on the field. And for the Eagles, this gives them some cap relief and opens the door for second-year receiver Mack Hollins to grab a starting spot behind Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor. This should also mean Agholor is a clear top-two wide receiver for the Eagles, and he could be used to stretch the field more than he was in 2017.
Torrey Smith catches five passes in Super Bowl LII.
Smith was targeted nine times against the Patriots, catching five passes for 49 yards. Smith's best play came on the first drive for the Eagles, as he made a nice leaping catch to convert a third-and-long on a drive that got the game started right for Philadelphia on offense and eventually ended with a touchdown. Next season, Smith's role should probably decrease, with Nelson Agholor taking more time in two-receiver sets and rookie Mack Hollins potentially taking some more time. He'll be a weekly boom-bust option in 2018.
Torrey Smith gets four targets in Divisional Round.
Smith caught three passes for 39 yards in the victory over Atlanta, and he started the game by drawing a long pass-interference call on the first play for the Eagles. This was one of Smith's best games of the year, and he'll look to keep it going next Sunday in the NFC Championship.
Torrey Smith drops a pass in Week 17.
He didn't play much of the game, but Smith didn't look good in his limited action, dropping a slant over the middle. Smith's regular season ends with 36 receptions for 430 yards and two touchdowns, and he'll be back in the postseason for the Eagles.
Torrey Smith catches five-yard pass in win over the Raiders.
It was his only reception of the game. This was a spot for Smith to have a nice performance against Oakland's slow corners, but he's just not a very good player anymore. Even if he's active in Week 17 with nothing to play for, Smith should stay out of fantasy lineups.
Torrey Smith catches two passes in Week 15.
Smith gained 17 yards on his two receptions, including a catch on a slant by the goal line that it appeared Smith might've stopped when he caught it instead of trying to get into the end zone. Nevertheless, Smith is basically a boom/bust option in fantasy lineups next week against the Raiders.
Torrey Smith hits 100 yards against the Rams.
Smith probably had his best overall game of the season in the Week 14 victory, catching six of 11 targets for 100 yards, with a long of 46 yards. The veteran led the team in receiving, and it was his first game over 100 yards with the Eagles. Smith isn't a reliable fantasy option as the third or fourth best wide receiver on the Eagles, though.
Torrey Smith gets seven targets in Week 13.
Smith caught five passes for 29 yards against the Seahawks. The Eagles continue to use Smith as basically a full-time player, but we definitely think it's a good idea to get Nelson Agholor as many snaps as possible. Perhaps Smith will do some damage in a potential shootout with the Rams next week, but he's not a highly-reccomended fantasy option.
Torrey Smith catches four passes in Week 12.
Smith gained 30 yards on his four receptions against the Bears. He's not a reliable fantasy option as the third or fourth best wide receiver for the Eagles.
Torrey Smith scores against the Cowboys.
Smith caught three passes for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 win, with the score coming on a perfect throw by Carson Wentz to the front of the end zone for 11 yards. The veteran receiver did have a bad drop on a throw earlier in the game, but it was good to see him bounce back. Smith isn't a recommended fantasy option as no better than the third receiver for the Eagles.
Torrey Smith catches one pass in Week 9.
Smith gained 11 yards on his lone reception versus Denver. He actually appeared to get more snaps than Nelson Agholor in the game, which is a bit of a head-scratcher, but Smith is not a reliable fantasy option right now.
Torrey Smith doesn't do much in Week 6.
The veteran receiver appears to be getting his playing time scaled back, as breakout third-year player Nelson Agholor is playing like an emerging star and is taking two-receiver snaps, while rookie Mack Hollins appeared to get more time at Smith's expense tonight. Smith had one reception (on two targets) for six yards, and he's not a fantasy option right now.
Torrey Smith struggles in Eagles' win over the Chargers.
Smith caught one of three targets for nine yards, and he had a drop on a perfect deep ball from Carson Wentz that could not have been handed to him any better. The veteran receiver is on pace for 40 receptions, 536 yards, and no touchdowns. Explosive third-year receiver Nelson Agholor is the better player and should probably be playing over Smith in two-receiver sets.
Torrey Smith catches four of five targets in Week 3.
Smith had four receptions for 29 yards against the Giants. He's not on the fantasy radar despite his big-play ability.
Torrey Smith catches four of eight targets in Week 2.
Smith had 66 yards on his four receptions, including a long of 24. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz trusted Smith to make plays down the field even when there was tight coverage, which is a good sight for fantasy owners. However, Smith did have a chance at a touchdown on a nice back-shoulder throw, but it went off his hands. Smith, surprisingly, appeared to get most of the time when the Eagles went to two-receiver sets against the Chiefs. He gets the Giants in Week 3.
Torrey Smith shows his speed in Week 1 against the Redskins.
Smith drew three targets in his first regular season game with the Eagles, catching one of them for 30 yards. There was a chance for more, but quarterback Carson Wentz couldn't quite hit him deep. The good news is Smith showed he still has the ability to get deep, and he's likely to make some big plays in 2017. It's difficult to trust him in your fantasy lineup, however.
Torrey Smith catches 50-yard touchdown in preseason game.
It took until Week 3 of the preseason, but Smith finally had a pass go his way for a long touchdown. Smith run right through the defense and was wide open after a bust in coverage by the Dolphins. The reception was Smith's only of the preseason, as he's unlikely to play in Week 4 of the preseason. He might have some good weeks, but it's unlikely Smith is a reliable fantasy option in 2017.
The Eagles are signing Torrey Smith to a three-year, $15 million contract, according to multiple reports.
This was the most likely landing spot for Smith, after the Eagles inquired about him during the trade deadline. Smith will start on the outside for the Eagles and should be a boom/bust FLEX option you can get late in 2017 fantasy drafts.
The 49ers have officially released Torrey Smith.
He's now a free agent. Smith won't have much trouble finding a new team.
Torrey Smith is getting released by the 49ers, according to...Steve Smith Sr.
Steve Smith is seamlessly transitioning to the off the field life, as he broke the news that Torrey Smith will be released by the Niners. Good for him. As for Torrey Smith, he never lived up to the big contract he got from the 49ers, but will try to get back to his ways in a new home. The Eagles were linked to Smith near the trade deadline, so that is a team to keep an eye on for his services.
Torrey Smith catches touchdown in Week 12.
Smith was second on the team in targets, with seven. He caught three of them for 24 yards and the touchdown. Smith also had at least one drop in the game and isn't a good fantasy option. Keep him on the waiver wire.
Smith caught two passes for 26 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
It's not going to happen this year for Smith. He should have been dropped a long time ago. Hopefully the Niners can draft a quarterback this offseason--or Smith can find his way to a different team.
