The 49ers have released WR Torrey Smith. A big free-agent signing back in 2015, Smith mustered just 930 yards and 7 TDs in 2 seasons in San Francisco. QB play was more to blame than the limitations in Smith's game. Still just 28, he's capable of bouncing back in a more favorable situation. The 'Niners, meanwhile, are left with Jeremy Kerley, Bruce Ellington and DeAndre Smelter atop their WR depth chart. They'll add to the position in free agency and/or the draft.

Recent Shark Bites

Panthers WR Torrey Smith (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions. WR D.J. Moore has played 70+% of the offensive snaps with Smith out the past 3 games. The rookie remains in the lower-end WR3 mix vs. a leaky Detroit pass defense.

Panthers WR Torrey Smith (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Steelers. That keeps D.J. Moore in the WR3 mix. He disappointed in the box score last week but played a season-high 86% of Carolina's offensive snaps.

Panthers WR Torrey Smith (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Bucs. That locks WR D.J. Moore into a significant role vs. the league's 30th-ranked WR defense. The rookie is a WR3 with loads of upside.

Panthers WR Torrey Smith (knee) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. His status is big for WR D.J. Moore, who played a season-high 71% of the snaps and broke out for 129 total yards last week. If Smith is out this weekend, Moore will be worth getting into fantasy lineups in a pristine matchup vs. the Bucs.

Panthers WR Torrey Smith (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. The veteran has played 69% of the offensive snaps and averaged 4.5 targets per game. WRs D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel should pick up extra playing time this weekend, but neither is a strong fantasy option in a tough matchup.
