|Conditions ripe for Torrey Smith |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(12/10/13) Ravens receiver Torrey Smith visits Detroit in Week 15 looking to bounce back from his second one-catch effort. Odds are Smith will bust out Monday night.
The Lions give up the 2nd-most Fantasy points (27.3 per game) to opposing wideouts. They've allowed receivers to catch 17 touchdowns, tied for the most. Wideouts average a league-high 16.1 yards per catch vs. Detroit.
Smith is a big-play threat who averages 17.5 yards per catch. The fast track at Ford Field suits him perfectly. The Ravens will have to keep up with Detroit, which ranks second in total yards (409.4) and sixth in scoring (26.6), and Smith is their top weapon.
Roll with Smith as a high-end WR2.

(12/8/13) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith had one of his worst performances of the season during a 29-26 win Week 14 vs. Minnesota. Smith was held to one catch for 12 yards on five targets -- his lowest output since recording one catch for 12 yards Week 6 against the Packers.
Smith's poor performance Sunday can't really be solely blamed on the poor weather conditions, which featured heavy snowfall. Plenty of credit goes to the Minnesota secondary and rookie cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who is starting to emerge as a shutdown cornerback late in the season. Smith's low output could also be attributed to quarterback Joe Flacco targeting wide receiver Marlon Brown and tight end Dennis Pitta a total of 22 times.
Smith was targeted just twice in the first half and didn't record his first and only catch until 14:22 of the fourth quarter. Smith did record a two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter, when Rhodes was out of the game with an ankle injury.
Smith will look to bounce back Week 15 at Detroit.
|Opponents holding Torrey Smith to low-yardage totals |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(12/3/13) It seems like ages ago, but you might recall Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith was pretty unstoppable at the start of the season, averaging 111.2 receiving yards through five games. Sadly, opposing defenses have done a good job since the fifth game of containing the third-year receiver, who has averaged just 56.6 receiving yards in his last seven games.
Luckily for Fantasy owners, however, Smith has stayed relevant the last few weeks with touchdowns in three of his last four games. He might not be posting the yardage he had early in the season, but the Ravens are still finding ways for him to make an impact. Smith will aim to score for the fourth time in five games Week 14 vs. Minnesota.
Wide receivers are averaging 25.7 Fantasy points per week against Minnesota, which is tied for the fifth-highest average. Wide receivers are averaging 194.4 receiving yards and have totaled 14 touchdowns in 12 games.
However, No. 1 receivers have struggled lately against the Vikings, particularly because of the play of rookie cornerback Xavier Rhodes. In the last three games, No. 1 wide receivers have averaged 4.7 Fantasy points.
Even if Smith is held to a low-yardage total Sunday, he's still a threat for a touchdown, which makes him a viable Fantasy start in all formats.
|Torrey Smith finds the end zone again in win |

(11/29/13) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith got off to a quick start in Week 13 against the Steelers, and finished with his best game in nearly two months in a 22-20 win.
Smith nearly scored on the team's fifth play from scrimmage, as a 54-yard toss from Ben Roethlisberger got him into the end zone. The play was ruled a touchdown, but the replay official overturned the call, and Smith was ruled down at the 1.
Smith quickly made up for getting caught from behind. He scored two plays later, after the Ravens were taken back to the 7-yard line. Smith finished the game with six catches for 93 yards and a touchdown, while being targeted 10 times.
Smith established a new career-high in receiving yards last week, and is nearing the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career. Smith enters Week 14 against the Vikings with 54 catches for 952 yards and four touchdowns.

(11/27/13) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith is looking at an average matchup Week 13 against the Steelers.
Pittsburgh has been about middle-of-the-pack against opposing wide receivers, allowing 20.91 Fantasy points per game. The team has been strong preventing touchdowns through the air, allowing just 13 passing touchdowns in 11 games. Of those 13 touchdowns, nine have been thrown to wide receivers.
Smith is already on his way to setting some new career-highs this season. He's already surpassed his single-season yardage total with 859 receiving yards. He's also two catches away from tying his single-season reception total. The one area where Smith has fallen behind is touchdowns. Smith has only found the end zone three times this season. In the first game against Pittsburgh, Smith caught three passes for 61 yards. In his career against the Steelers, Smith has scored one touchdown in five games. He's an iffy Fantasy play this week.
|Much is expected of Torrey Smith as he enters his third season with the Ravens. His stats have turned out to look similar through two years, getting roughly 50 catches for 850 yards per year with seven touchdowns as a rookie and eight as a sophomore. But now, Smith is expected to carry this receiving corps. With Anquan Boldin moving on to San Francisco, and Dennis Pitta (hip) out for the year, the onus is on Smith to develop into more than just a deep-threat. He could pick up more than the 135 targets he had last year, though he'd have to improve on his 44.4 percent catch rate and six games with 10-plus Fantasy points to become a top 20-option. If you play it safe, you should feel fine taking Smith with a pick around Round 6 as a low-end No. 2 Fantasy option with potential to be much better as the Ravens' most established threat.
