Week 1 Projections
When Pete Prisco of CBS Sports compiled his annual list of the most overrated and underrated players on each NFL team, it was cornerback Jimmy Smith who brought home the latter title for the Baltimore Ravens. 'He might be on the verge of a special season,' Prisco said, 'one that could get him to the Pro Bowl. Smith has all the tools to be an effective shutdown corner.' The 25-year-old started all 16 games for the Ravens last year, ranking 10th in the league in snaps played at the position. However, those snaps didn't equate to IDP production, with Smith barely finishing inside the top 30 cornerbacks in Fantasy Sharks Default IDP Scoring. Prisco may well be right, but it's hard to imagine a spike in statistical production for Smith big enough to 2014 to make the fourth-year pro anything more than a low-end starter in IDP leagues that require his position.
