But these days, both Steve Smiths have given fantasy owners plenty of reasons to complain. The Panthers version, once a clear-cut top-10 option, is sidelined because of a sprained ankle and probably will miss this week's game. When he does return for Week 7 (after the team's bye week), he will have to trust a rookie quarterback. The Giants' Smith, who blossomed as a point-per-reception monster last season, hasn't scored a touchdown in a mistake-filled passing offense, ranking tied for 36th in standard wide receiver scoring with Danny Woodhead.
To see which Steve Smith Mr. Karabell likes more for the remainder of the season, you must be an ESPN Insider.
