NYG WR Steve Smith-breakout player in 2009

Steve Smith the NYG WR is one of my breakout players for 2009.
In 2008 he had 57 catches for 574 yards and 1 TD but he only really started in 4 games.

Why a breakout year?
1) Opportunity- as Plaxico Buress may be missing, making Smith a #2 and perhaps the Giants #1

2) Smith enters his third year (thus having learned the system he should be better), Many breakout WRs come in their 3rd or 4th year.

3) Smith was a second round pick in 2007 (usually the higher the round drafted the more chance of breaking out; 1 and 2 rounders are the best)

4) Rumor has it that the Giants were reluctant to include Smith in a deal with the Browns for B. Edwards. So they must like him.
