Ravens receivers get on the same page
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(11/25/14) Consistency has been an issue for the Ravens passing game this season, but both Steve Smith and Torrey Smith found success in Week 12 against the Saints, just the third time all season both have finished with 9 or more Fantasy points.
Torrey Smith, who has been the team's most productive receiver over the last six weeks, continued to be so Monday, as he led the team with 98 yards on five catches. However, Steve Smith wasn't far behind, finishing with four receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown, his first since Week 6.
Early on in the season, Steve Smith was one of the top receivers in the league, and Torrey Smith struggled getting going. If the Ravens can get both involved down the stretch, that would take their offense to another level. Fantasy owners should remain skeptical, however, and view both as low-end starters until they prove otherwise.
Torrey Smith produces for third straight game

|(11/24/14) Ravens wideout Torrey Smith continued his stellar play Week 12 and led Baltimore with five catches for 98 yards at New Orleans. Smith drew a team-high six targets and repeatedly burned the Saints' secondary with yardage after the catch.
Smith didn't score for a third straight game, but over that stretch he's caught 14 balls for 236 yards and two touchdowns. Smith plays the Chargers in Week 13.
Torrey Smith still finding the end zone
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(11/9/14) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith kept rolling in Week 10, as he scored yet again in a 21-7 win over the Titans.
Smith recorded his fifth touchdown in as many games Sunday, as he hauled in a 32-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. He also led the team with five receptions for 75 yards, and he appears to have emerged as the team's big-play option of late.
Smith is averaging 11.2 Fantasy points per game over the last five, despite being shut out two weeks ago. He has been pretty touchdown dependent for Fantasy purposes, however, with a high of just 81 yards on the season, so he might not be a consistent option if the touchdowns stop flowing.
At this point, Smith is looking like a solid option, though he can be a bit boom-or-bust. Consider him more of a mid-tier starting option when the Ravens come back from their bye in Week 12 against the Saints.
Ravens' Torrey Smith nets sixth TD in last seven games Sunday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/9/14) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith had a team-high 75 receiving yards and one touchdown during a 21-7 win Week 10 vs. Tennessee. He also had five catches and eight targets -- both team highs.
Smith gave Baltimore a 21-7 lead with a 32-yard touchdown catch early in the fourth quarter. It was his sixth touchdown and all have come in the last seven games.
The Ravens are on a bye Week 11 before returning to action Week 12 at New Orleans.
Ravens WR Torrey Smith catches TD in Week 9 loss
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/3/14) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith caught four of his seven targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in his team's 43-23 loss to the Steelers in Week 9.
Smith's score came early in the first quarter, as the receiver outran his man to catch a 35-yard pass from Joe Flacco and put Baltimore up early. Unfortunately, it was almost all Steelers from that point on. It was a nice bounceback performance from Smith after he was held catchless the previous week, and he now has delivered four touchdowns in his last four games. Smith has tallied 22 catches, 371 yards and five touchdowns in nine games, and he's set to face the Titans in Week 10.
|Torrey Smith is clearly the Ravens' top receiver, becoming the franchise's first receiver to top 1,000 yards since Derrick Mason did it in 2009 and the first over 1,100 yards since Qadry Ismail did it in 1999. But even with that accomplishment there are some concerns about his lack of consistency. Despite his potential, Smith was a liability over the past two seasons with 10 games over 10 Fantasy points out of 32. Of more concern is his catch rate -- he caught just 45.8 percent of his targets over his last two seasons. Last year he caught the lowest percentage of targets of anyone with 100 or more passes thrown their way. And he scored four touchdowns despite 16 red-zone targets. Maybe he was easy to cover because the Ravens were thin at receiver, and if that's the case then the full-time return of Dennis Pitta and addition of Steve Smith will give Torrey Smith room to breathe. New offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak also has a pretty strong track record of getting big numbers from his No. 1 receiver. But unless Smith gets closer to 200 targets or becomes more efficient with his opportunities in and out of the red zone, he'll remain a boom-or-bust borderline No. 2 Fantasy receiver. That's where he's finished the past two seasons and that's where he's ranked heading into this year, making him a candidate for a Round 6 or 7 pick.
