Ravens | Could Steve Smith return?

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 08:28:13 -0800

Recently retired Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith isn't being ruled out for a return in 2017, according to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti. "I haven't given up hope that (he) is going to come walking in here in September," Bisciotti said. "We'll see about that character. I wouldn't count him out."

Fantasy Tip: Smith contends he's retired. If he were to return, he'd be a WR4 in PPR formats without a lot of upside.

Ravens | Steve Smith will retire after season

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 13:18:26 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith announced Wednesday, Dec. 28, that he will retire at the end of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: This could mean a potential big game for Smith, who undoubtedly wants to go out on a high note. He's an underrated play in daily contests. Mike Wallace, Kamar Aiken and Breshad Perriman will be Baltimore's top three receivers in 2017 as of now, but that could obviously change this offseason.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (thigh) is expected to play in Week 16's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was a limited participant in practice during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. However, he has an unfavorable matchup versus the Steelers and should not be viewed as anything more than a low-end WR3 or flex option in the majority of fantasy formats.

Ravens | Steve Smith questionable vs. Steelers

Fri, 23 Dec 2016 12:42:56 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (thigh) has been listed as questionable to suit up in the team's Week 16 game Sunday, Dec. 25, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Normally, Smith is very much in the WR3 conversation, but he might be a bottom-end option as far as this week goes, as his ceiling figures to be lower than usual in this tough matchup with Baltimore's biggest rival. He does get about eight targets a week, though, so he'll still get his chances no matter what.

Fri, 23 Dec 2016 08:56:41 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (thigh) is practicing Friday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has a tough matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, who have been one of the best against opposing receivers the last five weeks. Smith is in consideration for a WR3 or flex play, but he doesn't exhibit the kind of upside you're looking for in those spots.

Ravens | Steve Smith added to injury report

Thu, 22 Dec 2016 13:09:41 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (thigh) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Smith wasn't on the injury report yesterday, so this development is concerning. His status will need to be monitored heading into the weekend, but he's only a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 consideration if he does play. The Pittsburgh Steelers have been one of the best passing defenses in the NFL this year, giving up just eight touchdowns to receivers in 14 games.

Fantasy Tip: Smith should be given consideration as a WR3 or even someone to leave on your bench for use during bye weeks. That said, this was a good return for the veteran wideout.

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 08:09:52 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) said he will be able to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Smith should have a solid role in the passing game this week but should be considered a risky option because of the injury. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Ravens | Steve Smith's status remains uncertain

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 06:44:28 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is expected to work out on the field one hour before the team's inactive list is due for Week 9's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens' offensive staff is designing their game plan as if he will be able to play.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was able to practice twice during the week but hasn't suited up for a game since Week 5, making him a risky play in all fantasy formats. Owners should have alternate options on hand in case he is deactivated.

Ravens | Steve Smith gets in a full practice

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 12:07:18 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Nov. 4. He's being listed as questionable for the team's Week 9 contest Sunday, Nov. 6, versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: The 16-year veteran hasn't suited up since Week 5, but after getting in two practices this week, it appears he'll be able to make his return on Sunday opposite the arch-nemesis Steelers. Smith has always been a favorite target of Joe Flacco's since arriving in Baltimore a few years ago, but owners shouldn't be surprised if he underachieves in his first game back, being at less than 100 percent health.

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 18:40:11 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Ravens | Steve Smith remains sidelined

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 09:14:01 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Smith may have to miss another game because of his ankle injury, but owners should check on his status later in the week. Smith is a decent play when healthy, but owners should look for other options to use.

Ravens | Steve Smith listed as doubtful again

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 11:59:08 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) has been listed as doubtful for the team's Week 7 game Sunday, Oct. 23, versus the New York Jets. He also sat out practice again Friday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Smith hasn't practiced all week, so it certainly looks likely that he'll be sitting out his second straight contest. Kamar Aiken should get a boost again in his absence, but after attracting six targets last week, he's not a very safe WR3 option to lean on for Week 7.

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 08:40:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) will not play in Week 6's game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Smith hadn't practiced all week and it's possible that he could miss an extended period of time, so this news isn't surprising. WRs Mike Wallace and Kamar Aiken and TE Dennis Pitta should see increased targets in his absence.

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 06:45:06 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is not expected to play in Week 6's game against the New York Giants.

Ravens | Steve Smith tabbed doubtful for Week 6

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 12:39:59 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is being listed as doubtful for the team's Week 6 game Sunday, Oct. 16, against the New York Giants. He missed practice again Friday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Baltimore's receiving core is severely banged up at the moment, as not only is Smith likely to miss Sunday's contest, but fellow veteran wide-out Mike Wallace is being considered questionable to suit up. If he does manage to play, he'd receive a big boost as long as Smith is sidelined. However, if both talented receivers can't play, Kamar Aiken would find himself in a big role again.

Ravens | Steve Smith misses practice Friday

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 10:24:57 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) sat out of practice again Friday, Oct. 14, and has yet to practice this week as the team continues to prepare for its Week 6 showdown with the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: There are reports that have suggested Smith is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which means the aging veteran could be on the shelf or limited in some capacity for the next month or so. Owners of Mike Wallace, Dennis Pitta and Kamar Aiken - likely in that order - figure to benefit the most from his absence in fantasy.

Ravens | Steve Smith sits out again

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 09:17:25 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Smith may not be able to play in Week 6, but owners should still monitor the situation. Dennis Pitta and Mike Wallace probably would be the top options in the passing game for the Ravens. Pitta could be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end, while Wallace can be a No. 3 receiver if he plays.

Ravens | Steve Smith misses practice

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 11:49:51 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Smith suffered the injury in Week 5 and may need more than a week to recover from the injury. Owners can keep an eye on his status throughout the week but should have other options ready to use in case Smith is ruled out.

Ravens | Steve Smith unlikely for Week 6

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 08:54:46 -0700

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 6, in the opinion of beat writer Jamison Hensley. Hensley expressed the doubt in an interview on Sirius XM Fantasy radio Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Kamar Aiken is expected to receive heavier attention, and he needs it with a 6-28-0 line on the season. Aiken could emerge into the flex discussion against the New York Giants.

Ravens | Steve Smith out of practice

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 08:29:56 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has a 27-310-1 line on the year, and he was targeted 11 times each in Weeks 3 and 4. He remains an impactful receiver in fantasy, but he's very iffy for Week 6. Kamar Aiken could sneak into the flex discussion against the New York Giants.

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 15:16:13 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (leg) caught three passes for 29 yards against the Washington Redskins in Week 5 before he left because of an injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days to see if Smith has a chance to play in Week 6. Smith could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option if he plays, but owners will need other options ready in case he is ruled out.

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 12:36:56 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (leg) is out for the remainder of the game Sunday, Oct. 9, against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Depending on the severity of the injury, which won't be known until X-rays and other tests are done, this could be a potential stumbling block for the Ravens and for fantasy owners' teams. If Smith can't go, Kamar Aiken and Mike Wallace could see immediate benefits.

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 19:49:23 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith rolled up eight receptions for 111 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders. He was targeted a team-high 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: The ageless Smith keeps on rolling, as his yardage totals have increased in every game so far this season. He has been targeted 22 times in the past two games, posting 16 receptions for 198 yards and a touchdown. He remains a decent WR2 in most fantasy leagues.

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 20:32:39 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith faces the Oakland Raiders in Week 4, and last year, he had 10 catches for 150 yards against Oakland.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is coming off an eight-catch, 87-yard performance last week, and he is a viable WR3 against an Oakland secondary that has allowed some big games to receivers this year.

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 17:15:09 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith caught five passes for 19 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.

Ravens | Baltimore confident in Steve Smith

Sat, 10 Sep 2016 09:52:02 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith is still a "great player" in the mind of head coach John Harbaugh, who suggested there is "no reason" why he will not play "great" against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Harbaugh may be confident in his 37-year-old receiver, but that doesn't mean fantasy owners should be. Smith did not play a single preseason snap after tearing his Achilles' midway through last season, so it would be a major upset if he had a huge game at any point early this season. Owners need to treat him as something of a high-risk WR4 at best until he actually puts something on tape post-injury. Mike Wallace and Kamar Aiken should be the top Baltimore receivers in 2016.

Ravens | Two Baltimore receivers won't play

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 13:29:47 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WRs Steve Smith (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee) are not expected to play Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Detroit Lions. They did not practice Thursday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Both players have been dealing with injuries this offseason, and Smith is especially no surprise to be sitting out preseason action. Perriman is more disappointing as we haven't seen much of him over his first two years. As it stands, Smith is in low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 territory, while Perriman is more of a deep flier in later rounds.

Ravens | Kamar Aiken's numbers could suffer

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 21:49:05 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken had 25 catches for 333 yards in eight games with WR Steve Smith last year, and Aiken had 50 catches for 611 yards in the eight games Smith missed.

Fantasy Tip: Aiken is a popular fantasy sleeper, but if Smith and Breshad Perriman stay healthy, Aiken could struggle to make an impact. He is worth a late-round grab, but don't overpay.

Ravens | Steve Smith activated

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 11:04:24 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, Aug. 17, and likely will participate in practice Monday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will have a few weeks to prepare for the start of the season but will be the top target for Joe Flacco this season. Smith is one of the older receivers in the NFL but should still be a solid No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Ravens | Steve Smith's injury was more severe

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 07:20:08 -0700

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') suffered a double rupture of his Achilles' last season, which surgeon, Robert Anderson, said was the first one he had ever seen.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's tenacity and will has always been great. However, "Father Time" is undefeated. At 37, coming back from this catastrophic injury, it looks really bleak that Smith can be a dependable fantasy receiver. He'll be in the WR4 mix, but that's an area where you can find receivers with upside.

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 06:40:27 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') and WR Breshad Perriman (knee) are out of practice Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Smith still holds clout in fantasy, but at 37, it's hard to envision a return to anything more than desperation WR3 or a high-end WR4. Perriman has the talent worth rolling the dice on as a WR5.

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 12:30:25 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles'), WR Breshad Perriman (knee) and RB Trent Richardson (knee) were placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Smith and Perriman are still expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, although neither of them will probably play much in the preseason. Richardson can be avoided in fantasy drafts, while Smith and Perriman should be drafted as a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 and WR5, respectively.
