Found August 22, 2012 on Fantasy Football Champs:
According to Nick Wagoner of stlouisrams.com, Rams receiver Steve Smith has ascended to the top of the depth chart and looked much more like the 2009 Pro Bowler. Smith, playing for the Giants, caught 107 balls that season for 1,220 yards and seven scores.Fantasy Spin:With a bunch of unproven receivers on the roster, quarterback Sam Bradford may rely heavily on Smith and the returning Danny Amendola early on in the season. Smith could be a nice late-round draft choice to provide fantasy owners with WR depth.
