Also, whoever has Steve smith as their number one, is in trouble. Having other good receivers on the team can be a good thing.. Take attention away from Nicks. Defenses can focus on crabtree being that he is the only threat outside of Davis.
You're right. Smith did only have one half of a season that was good but I still think that he will be the Giants leading WR. I think Nicks will also be productive but give me smith over nicks. Smith had over 1200 rec yds and 7 TD's last season. I think he will once again surpass the 1K rec yds and have right around 7 TD's if not more. I don't see his TD production going down next season. I think Nicks will be right at or around 1K rec yds as well but may possibly have less TD's. Who really knows what will happen. Being a low-end #1 option might be a bit of a stretch but if I end up with smith as a #2 WR, I'd be happy.
