I hope this is true, but I'm gonna say it's not even gonna be close. I'm a Smith homer, but no way is he gonna throw for over 3500+.
I say Smith will get more around 3000, give or take 200 if he plays all 16 games. Crabtree will probably be somewhere around 1000 considering we'll have him from Week 1 and we now have more than just 1 threat in the passing game. I think Davis might see a loss in TD production because teams will be double teaming him in the redzone (but as we seen last season, he can be triple teamed and still haul the rock in for a TD).
I think Davis might be more of an option now around midfield. Teams won't be expecting him as much there. I think he'll get around 800 yards with 8 TDs or so. I think we'll see Crabtree's TDs increase greatly though. Somewhere around 10 or possibly more.
