Torrey Smith Injury Update: Will play and has fantasy value

Patrick Smith

Torrey Smith (chest) will play on Sunday. Should you start him?

Torrey Smith (chest) was limited in practice all week and is listed as probable to face the Steelers. He will start and should play a full complement of snaps.

Smith's seven TDs are tied for fourth in the league and he has 548 yards on 31 catches. On the downside, Smith has 64 targets, so catching less than 50 percent of his targets is a bit troubling.

Fantasy Impact: Smith should try to tear the top off the Pittsburgh defense and the chest injury shouldn't limit him from running fly routes.

Smith's last game against the Steelers on Sunday Night Football was a memorable one with his game-winning TD on a go route. He'll be just fine and even though his targets have been down, owners should start him as a flex or a weak WR2 in standard leagues.
