Ravens | Steve Smith may see less snaps

Tue, 19 May 2015 18:31:23 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith could see his snaps drop this season, because the team wants to keep him healthy during the season, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will be 36 years old when the season starts, so it may be a good idea to lessen his workload. He posted 79 catches, 1.065 yards and six touchdowns this past season but could see a dip in his stats if he does see less time. Smith could still be a solid option in the middle rounds of drafts next season.

Ravens | Steve Smith shaken up

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 14:22:15 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (leg) was down at the conclusion of the first quarter of the divisional-playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10. He missed one play and returned to the game.

Fantasy Tip: He appeared to be clutching his left leg in the hamstring or knee area and was shown on the sideline walking it off. It apparently isn't serious, but it's something to watch moving forward.

Ravens | Steve Smith strong early

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 14:02:40 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Smith has caught three balls for 44 yards, including that touchdown, on crossing routes. He appears to have been a good bet at $5,900 on FantasyScore early on.

Ravens | Steve Smith to meet Revis Island

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 07:01:12 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith is expected to line up against New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis for most of the divisional-round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,900; 11.8% of your cap) has a tough matchup and has really fallen off since the early part of the season. Smith is a WR2 with a dark matchup cloud over him on FantasyScore.

Ravens | Steve Smith has little success against Revis

Tue, 06 Jan 2015 09:59:21 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith has been held to just two catches for 21 yards in three games when he's been matched up against New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis in his career, according to Pro Football Focus. QB Joe Flacco has thrown Revis' way a total of three times out of 164 snaps against the Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear exactly who Revis will be covering this weekend, but it would make more sense for him to be matched up with Steve Smith. That doesn't make Smith an attractive FantasyScore option, and Flacco shouldn't be high on your list for QBs, either.

Ravens | Steve Smith slowing down?

Sat, 27 Dec 2014 19:46:20 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith has been held to less than 50 receiving yards in six of his last nine games. He has also failed to reach 100 receiving yards in any game during the same stretch after reaching the mark in four of the first six games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Smith appeared to be reborn in Baltimore when the year began, but the veteran has really tailed off. At this point, he isn't even worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore.

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 20:12:30 -0800

Ravens | Owen Daniels, Steve Smith probable

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 12:00:51 -0700

Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (non-injury) and WR Steve Smith (non-injury) both practiced in full Friday, Oct. 3, and are probable for Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has become Flacco's favorite target, so he should be a weekly consideration for fantasy players. With Dennis Pitta (hip) out for the year, Daniels gains immediate fantasy value and is a nice sleeper option at FantasyScore this weekend.

Ravens | Steve Smith, Owen Daniels sit

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 13:41:46 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (non-injury related) and TE Owen Daniels (non-injury related) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: This is just a precautionary day off for two key veterans. They'll still be good to go for Week 5.

Ravens | Steve Smith still producing

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 12:35:28 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith is one of four wide receivers with more than 40 targets and at least 400 receiving yards so far this year.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has perhaps been the biggest surprise in all of fantasy football this season. While his rate of production isn't likely to continue, he could maintain his WR1 status by season's end, especially considering the absence of TE Dennis Pitta and the struggles of WR Torrey Smith.

Ravens | Steve Smith hurts former team

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 14:51:51 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith posted game highs with seven receptions, 139 yards and two touchdowns in Week 4 against the Carolina Panthers, his former team. He was targeted a game-high 10 times. It was Smith's 46th career 100-yard game.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers discarded Smith during the offseason, believing he no longer had anything left. The Ravens, and fantasy owners, are obviously finding out otherwise. Smith has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option in all formats.

Ravens | Steve Smith targeted often

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 05:57:37 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith Sr is the eighth-most targeted player in the NFL with 31 targets. QB Joe Flacco is also looking to him in clutch situations.

Fantasy Tip: Smith should have an extra-crunchy chip on his shoulder this week against the Carolina Panthers. He will cost you $6,600 (13.2% of your cap) on FantasyScore, which is pretty cheap with how well he has produced.

Ravens | Steve Smith targeted heavily

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 05:46:49 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith was targeted 10 times in Week 2 and hauled in six catches for 71 yards. WR Torrey Smith had just three targets and caught one pass for 10 yards in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Smith looks to be Joe Flacco's new favorite target. At $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore, he was a decent buy this week. Torrey Smith could be the bargain next week depending on how much Steve Smith's price tag jumps.

Ravens | Steve Smith impressing fellow WRs

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 19:39:41 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith said that after watching WR Steve Smith play, he is surprised that the Carolina Panthers let him go in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Smith and Jacoby Jones will likely have the higher-scoring games because of their big-play ability down the field, but Smith could end up being the most consistent week-to-week fantasy option among the Baltimore receivers this year. He is currently healthy after dealing with a knee injury last year, and he will likely inherit more of the possession role that Anquan Boldin filled two years ago. Consider him a solid bench option at the WR spot, especially in PPR formats.

Ravens | Steve Smith impressing

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:40:09 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith's hands have impressed Ravens QB Joe Flacco. "Just his natural ability to catch the ball with his hands," Flacco said. "He catches everything with his hands, and he does a great job doing it."

Fantasy Tip: Smith is a viable WR4 but can be had at the cost of a No. 5. He will be a weekly flex play consideration for deeper leagues.

Ravens | Steve Smith expected to be used underneath

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 14:05:45 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith is expected to run mostly underneath routes this upcoming season from the outside receiver and slot positions, because WR Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones are expected to be the big-play threats.

Fantasy Tip: Smith likely will have a starting job this upcoming season and should help move the chains on many occasions. Owners in point-per-reception leagues should consider Smith as a No. 4 receiver, because he probably will receive a lot of targets. He should be a solid No. 4 or a possible value pick as a No. 5 receiver in standard leagues.

I'm Steve Smith, and what I bring to the table as a Baltimore Raven, I have to earn that, and my time on the field will display what I bring to the table.

Fri, 14 Mar 2014 14:09:04 -0700

Ravens | Favorites for Steve Smith

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 09:22:29 -0700

The Baltimore Ravens are considered the favorites to sign free-agent WR Steve Smith (Panthers), according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Smith would almost certainly be lined up in the slot with Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones on the outside. Smith would no longer be a midrange No. 1 wideout, but he could make enough noise to be a fantasy target in Baltimore's revamped offense.
