Steve Smith disappoints fantasy owners against Seahawks

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith turned in a disappointing fantasy performance, catching four passes for 40 yards in the loss to the Seattle Seahawks. We break down the fantasy implications.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith turned in a disappointing fantasy performance, catching just four passes for 40 yards in the loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Smith's struggles were directly tied to those of Cam Newton, who only managed 140 yards passing against a tough Seahawks secondary. Smith was not the team's leading receiver on the day. Brandon Lafell had 44 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact: After a fast start to the season, Steve Smith has slowed to a sluggish fantasy pace. He and Cam Newton are struggling to get Carolina's passing game off the ground. Newton's attitude has been heavily criticized, but the play of the passing game is of much greater concern to the Panthers.
