Can't trust Torrey Smith in Week 3


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) Torrey Smith has been non-existent through two games with four catches for 60 yards on 10 targets.

We hope things start to improve, but it's hard to count on it this week against the Browns.

Smith had eight Fantasy points or less in two meetings with Cleveland last year despite 21 targets, and he has one game with double digits in Fantasy points in three trips to Cleveland.

Until we see Smith start producing like the No. 1 receiver in this offense -- he's tied for third among targets behind Steve Smith (25), Dennis Pitta (19) and Owen Daniels (10) -- he should be avoided in most 10- and 12-team leagues.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Torrey Smith catches one pass Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith managed just one catch against the Steelers Week 2.

Smith was targeted just three times during the contest. Four other Ravens pass catchers received more targets than Smith. He did manage to draw a penalty on his first play, giving his team 23 yards on the play. He didn't actually catch his first pass until the third quarter. Smith hauled in a 10 yard reception with eight minutes left in the quarter. 

Smith will look to rebound Week 3 against the Browns. 


QB feels Torrey Smith can be 100-catch receiver


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco took time Tuesday to clarify comments he told CBS broadcaster Solomon Wilcots, who on Sunday during the Baltimore-Cincinnati broadcast said Flacco told him wide receiver Torrey Smith needs to continue to work on his underneath routes.

"I think most of what I said, what I said during training camp, was that in the past, a lot of those underneath things in the stop routes, on the sideline, things like that, they were the things that we probably struggled with a little bit," Flacco said, per The Baltimore Sun. "But so far this year, they have been incredible. What I believe, what I probably said or was referring to, is Torrey is a 1,000-yard receiver and he’s a 100-catch guy."

Flacco added in order for Smith to emerge with elite numbers, he believes it's going to take shorter routes to rise to that level.

"It’s going to be the 5-yard catches that he turns into 12-yard gains," Flacco said. "It’s going to be the 5-yard catches and [he] gets tackled. Those are the things that are going to take him from being however many catches he had last year to being a 100-reception guy. And I’m seeing all those things this year from him. He’s really developing that, and I feel great about it."


Torrey Smith fairly quiet in opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith took a backseat to newcomer Steve Smith in Week 1, in a 23-16 loss to the Bengals.

Smith tied for third on the team with seven targets, and he hauled in just three of them for 50 yards in the loss. He had a long catch of 25 yards, while finishing third on the team in yards.

Smith was the team's lone receiver for much of last season, but the Ravens have more help, as Sunday's game showed. The Ravens' next game is set for Thursday against the Steelers in Week 2.  


Torrey Smith opening season with tough matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) The Ravens got Torrey Smith a bit more help in the receiving corps this offseason, which should help him find more room to operate this season. Will that help him break out against a tough Bengals defense in Week 1?

Smith was mostly held in check in two games against the Bengals a year ago, as he finished with just eight receptions for 73 yards, with just one touchdown in his first game salvaging an otherwise wretched couple of games against the divisional foe. He wasn't alone in struggling against the Bengals a year, as opposing wide receivers averaged just 18.4 Fantasy points per game against them last season, the ninth-lowest total in the league.

Smith got off to a fast start a year ago, racking up 556 receiving yards in the first five games before slowing considerably. However, our Fantasy experts aren't in love with this matchup for Smith, as neither Dave Richard nor Jamey Eisenberg ranks Smith among the top-25 wide receivers for Week 1. Consider him more of a No. 3 receiver option for Sunday. 


Torrey Smith expects versatile role


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Ravens receiver Torrey Smith "anticipates a versatile role that incorporates his ability to run deep routes as well as short to intermediate patterns," reports the Baltimore Sun. Smith is the all-time franchise leader with 37 grabs of 25-plus yards.

"It's always a little bit of everything," Smith said. "I think that even since I've been here it's not like they have been sending me on 'nine' routes every play. It's definitely built, as you can tell, timing-wise, and trying to get you the ball and let you work in space, which I love because I can get the ball quick. It's a lot of room, and I feel like I can trust my speed to create some big plays."


Torrey Smith scores against Cowboys


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Ravens receiver Torrey Smith caught a 19-yard touchdown pass in Saturday's win over the Cowboys. Late in the second quarter, Smith got behind rookie defensive back Terrance Mitchell and hauled in a beautiful throw from Joe Flacco. 

It was Smith's lone reception on two targets.


Ravens plan to extend Torrey Smith's contract


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/28/2014) Contract talks between receiver Torrey Smith and the Ravens have not been heating up according to the Baltimore Sun, but Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and general manager Ozzie Newsome both have made assurances that receiver Torrey Smith will receive a contract extension. That might be why Smith isn't thinking about his future as he prepares for the last year on his rookie deal. 

"I don't think about the contract at all," Smith told the Sun. "That stuff kind of takes care of itself. I'm not going out there on the field while I'm running a route like, 'Man, Ozzie saw that!' I'm here to win. I'm a Raven, always going to be a Raven. That's all I worry about."


Torrey Smith a 'one-trick pony?'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) Ravens receiver Torrey Smith has become "a bit of a one-trick pony" as a downfield threat, reports ESPN.

The report says last season, Smith led all NFL players in the most targets and routes run on passes that travel over 20 yards in the air. He was targeted 34 times on such passes.

Of the 130 passes thrown Smith's way last year, 26 percent came on passes that went over 20 yards in the air. Where Smith has to become more of complete receiver is on the shorter passes. Last season, Smith had 39 catches on throws that traveled 10 yards or less in the air, which ranked 71st among all NFL players.

Marlon Brown, a undrafted rookie, had one more reception on those shorter passes than Smith in 2013.


Torrey Smith 'catching everything' at OTAs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Ravens receiver Torrey Smith is "catching everything thrown his way" at OTAs, reports ESPN.com. On one play, Smith was "blanketed by cornerback Jimmy Smith along the sideline and still found a way to come down with the ball by making an adjustment in mid-air," the report said.

Smith told Sports Illustrated that veteran wideout Steve Smith has been hammering home the importance of "coming back to the ball on a consistent basis."

Smith caught 65 balls for 1,128 yards and four touchdowns last year.


Ravens, Torrey Smith have mutual interest in long-term pact


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/27/2014) The Ravens have made it clear they want to keep Torrey Smith with a long-term deal, and the receiver is also interested. Smith will be a free agent in 2015. 

"Everybody knows I want to be in Baltimore for the long haul," Smith told the Baltimore Sun. "Even when my playing days are long gone, I'll still be here. It's something I'm looking forward to. I'm pretty sure and hopeful that it will be able to happen one day. It's a business. I'm not losing any sleep wondering what's going to happen contractually."

Smith had a career-best 1,128 yards on 65 catches last season with four touchdowns. 


Joe Flacco, receivers to get early start


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will work out with his receivers before the team's offseason program.

"Joe has communicated that through texts, and Torrey [Smith] has told me that they have a session planned and are trying to work out the dates," coach John Harbaugh said at the NFL owners meetings. "I'll be looking forward to seeing how it goes. It is important. It's big."

Flacco's receiving corps includes Torrey Smith, Steve Smith, Marlon Brown, Jacoby Jones and tight end Dennis Pitta. Flacco threw 19 touchdowns and a career-high 22 interceptions last year.


Harbaugh hopes Torrey Smith gets extension


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Ravens receiver Torrey Smith is a free agent after this season, but coach John Harbaugh hopes he's in Baltimore for a long time.

"I know the coach wants him long term," Harbaugh said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings.


Ravens need 'move-the-chains' receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) Asked what the Ravens' offense lacks, wideout Torrey Smith mentioned a "move-the-chains" receiver like Anquan Boldin. Of course, Baltimore traded Boldin following its Super Bowl victory last year.

“I don’t want to say an Anquan, but just a guy that’s like a move-the-chains guy," Smith told the Baltimore Sun. "That’s probably someone that we need on a consistent basis. Another weapon like that is just another person that Joe [Flacco] can rely on.”

Second-year pro Marlon Brown returns to the receiving corps, while Baltimore could lose unrestricted free agent Jacoby Jones and restricted free agent Tandon Doss. The other four receivers on the roster -- Deonte Thompson, Kamar Aiken, Gerrard Sheppard and Aaron Mellette – all are unproven, the report said.


Ravens looking for help at receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2014) The Ravens are looking for a receiver to supplement Torrey Smith and Marlon Brown, reports the Carroll County Times. Baltimore has no tight ends under contract for 2014.

“We need to be able to get a receiver – whether it’s a tight end or a wide receiver — that can make a third-and-7, third-and-8 catch and run after the catch,” general manager Ozzie Newsome told the paper.


Torrey Smith has 27 yards in season finale


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith caught three passes for 27 yards in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Bengals. It was the third-lowest yardage total for Smith this season. 

Smith finishes the season with a career-high 1,128 yards (his first 1,000-yard campaign) and four touchdowns (a career-low). He played in all 16 games for the third time in his three-year career. 


Torrey Smith active Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith is active Week 17.

Smith is dealing with a thigh injury, and was questionable entering the week. He's been able to get through limited practice all week. 


Ravens quartet questionable for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Four top Ravens have been deemed questionable for the battle against Cincinnati on Sunday. They are running back Ray Rice and wide receiver Torrey Smith, both with thigh injuries, linebacker Elvis Dumervil (ankle) and offensive lineman Gino Gradkowski (knee).

Torrey Smith has 20 targets over last two games


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/27/2013) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has been up and down all season -- with seven games of 75 or more receiving yards but just four games with 10 or more Fantasy points (in standard leagues). He has four touchdowns and two games with 100-plus receiving yards. 

Smith caught five passes for 46 yards and a touchdown in Week 10, when he faced the Bengals for the first time this year. And while the Bengals have been solid against the pass this season, they have given up eight touchdowns to wideouts over the last six games. However, that includes a four-touchdown game from the Colts, which looks more like an aberration than anything else against the full-season stats from Cincinnati. 

Smith doesn't score a lot, and while he's capable of going over 75 yards, his big, 100-plus ones are infrequent. He can be plugged into lineups at flex or WR3, but carries some risk as anything more significant. 


Torrey Smith limited Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/25/2013) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith was listed as limited on the team's injury report Wednesday.

Baltimore did not practice, but did release a projected injury report. Smith is dealing with a thigh injury.


Torrey Smith disappears in first half of Week 16 loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith was held in check early on during Sunday’s contest against the Patriots in Week 16.

Smith was targeted twice and held without a grab in the first half. He bounced back with a 42-yard reception late in the third quarter for his first grab of the day. He finished the game with three catches for 69 yards on eight targets in a 41-7 loss.

Smith has 62 receptions for 1,101 yards and four touchdowns this season. He'll look to bounce back against the Bengals in Week 17.

Torrey Smith seeking third 100-yard game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Ravens receiver Torrey Smith will look to remain productive and get back in the end zone at home against the Patriots in Week 16.

In a 28-13 playoff win last season, Smith caught four of the nine passes thrown his way for 69 yards. Only 413 of his 1,032 receiving yards have come at home this season. He has not reached the century mark since Week 5 at Miami.

Smith will face a New England defense that has allowed 12 touchdowns to wide receivers over the previous nine games played. The Patriots have allowed a receiver to reach 100 yards in each of the last three games. Opposing wide receivers have scored 21.57 Fantasy points per game this season against New Engand. Consider Smith a solid starting option in most formats for Week 16.

Torrey Smith goes over 1,000 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) Ravens receiver Torrey Smith went over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career by catching four passes for 69 yards Week 15 at Detroit. Smith drew a team-high 12 targets. 

Smith and quarterback Joe Flacco were not in sync: they failed to hook up on several deep balls. Smith, who's up to 1,032 receiving yards, will try to break a two-game scoring drought Week 16 against the Patriots.


Conditions ripe for Torrey Smith


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) 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.


Torrey Smith held to one catch for second time this season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) 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.
