Torrey Smith still finding the end zone


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) 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
(11/9/2014) 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
(11/3/2014) 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 shows his downside


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) Even though Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith scored a combined three touchdowns in Weeks 6 and 7, his limited number of targets and catches in those games were cause for skepticism.

So in some ways, his performance Week 8 at Cincinnati, when he was shut out on two targets, was all too predictable.

As primarily a deep-ball threat, Smith has always been an all-or-nothing player, but now the Ravens have an even better deep-ball threat in Steve Smith, they're at a loss for what to do with Torrey Smith. Offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak made a real effort get him involved in Weeks 5 and 6, but his 39-yard touchdown in Week 7 came when the Ravens were seemingly just running out the clock already up big in the fourth quarter. It was completely superfluous.

Which is what Smith is now in Fantasy. He'll find the end zone again in 2014 and occasionally make you wonder why you don't use him more often, but his downside from week to week is simply too great at this stage of his career.


Ravens WR Torrey Smith held catchless in Week 8 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith was unable to catch either of his two targets in his team's 27-24 loss to the Bengals in Week 8.

Smith hasn't been a consistent part of the passing game this season, failing to catch more than four passes in any of the team's first seven games, but Sunday's goose egg was a new low. It's his first catchless game since the 2012 season finale, which also came against the Bengals. Smith had to leave the game in the second half to be tested for a concussion but later returned to action.

Smith has managed just 18 receptions for 308 yards and four touchdowns at the halfway point of the Ravens' season. If healthy, he'll square off with the Steelers in Week 9.


Ravens WR Torrey Smith returns to action after concussion test


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has returned to the game after undergoing concussion testing following a head injury in Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Smith stopped running his route on a play in the third quarter after suffering the injury, and the Bengals picked off a Joe Flacco pass when Smith was the intended target. Smith didn't record a catch in the first three quarters of the game.


Ravens WR Torrey Smith exits game, evaluated for concussion


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith exited Sunday's game with a head injury and is being evaluated in the locker room for a potential concussion.

Smith suffered the injury on a play where he was targeted on a pass but stopped his route, leading to the interception. He has yet to catch a pass in the game.


Torrey Smith going to be hit or miss


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2014) Even though he has four touchdowns in his last four games, I'm still reluctant to say Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith is "back." For starters, his touchdown Week 7 against Atlanta came with the Ravens already up by multiple scores and seemingly content with running out the clock late in the fourth quarter before deciding to chuck it 39 yards to the end zone on fourth down. Clearly, the element of surprise was at work there.

Smith was targeted on a couple other deep throws but couldn't haul them in, with one of them even resulting in an interception. It's like Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, who's in his first year with the team, doesn't know how else to use a player who had been the team's top wide receiver before he came along. Unfortunately, deep balls aren't exactly high-percentage plays.

Or high-volume plays. For the second straight game, Smith got only five targets after getting only three in two of the Ravens' other four games. He'll get the call on the occasional short route, but so many more of those go to Steve Smith, who's also capable of stretching the field.

Let's see a little more from Torrey Smith in terms of targets and actual catches before activating him in Fantasy.


Ravens WR Torrey Smith has four TDs in last four games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith scored for a second straight week and the fourth time in four games during a 29-7 win Week 7 vs. Atlanta. Smith totaled three catches for a team-high 81 yards.

Smith was having a pretty quiet day until he connected with quarterback Joe Flacco for a 39-yard touchdown with 1:46 left in the fourth quarter on a fourth-and-9 play. Smith was targeted five times.

The Ravens are back in action Week 8 at Cincinnati.


Touchdowns the only difference for Torrey Smith


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/12/2014) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith averaged 2.2 catches on 5.8 targets in his first five games, so his four catches on five targets Week 6 at Tampa Bay were nothing new.

Except that he scored touchdowns on two of them, connecting on strikes of 15 and 9 yards, both in the first quarter.

So ... is he back to being usable in Fantasy? That's the question, isn't it? The Ravens seemed to make an effort to get him involved, and it paid off. It paid off so well, in fact, that they had a 28-0 lead after one quarter of play and didn't have much need for Smith anymore, targeting him just once over the final three quarters. As bad as he was the first five weeks, he didn't even set a season high with 51 yards in this one.

Though the Ravens didn't throw as much over the final three quarters as they did in the first, they did still throw 16 times. And only one of those went to Smith? I don't know what to make of that.

Smith got plenty of media attention leading up to the game, from coach John Harbaugh saying the Ravens need to get him more involved to ESPN saying he's not a good fit for new coordinator Gary Kubiak's offense. Certainly, he needs to be owned with this performance, but I want to see more before starting him in Fantasy.


Ravens' Torrey Smith shows up Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Ravens wideout Torrey Smith found the end zone twice Week 6.

Smith wasted no time getting to work, scoring on a 15 yard strike on the team's first drive. Things didn't end there, as Smith added a 9 yard score on the following drive. Smith's first two catches went for touchdowns. He would finished with four receptions for 51 yards and two scores.

Smith will take on the Falcons Week 7. 


Ravens WR Torrey Smith struggling to fit in with new offense


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Formerly prolific Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith could be a poor fit for the new dink-and-dunk offense under new coordinator Gary Kubiak, according to ESPN.

Smith is considered a home-run hitter. But he does not agree with those who claim he is miscast in the current Baltimore offensive approach despite statistics that tell his targets have been cut nearly in half.

"It's the same as any other offense I've ever been in and it's literally the same exact offense I ran in college," he said. "That's not the case at all."

He added that he remains confident and does not believe his worst start to any NFL season is the result of being in a contract year. But he had 49 passes thrown in his direction after five games last season and just 26 in 2014. The percentage of passes thrown 10 yards or less by quarterback Joe Flacco has risen from 54 to 75 over the past year.

Smith has three receptions or under in all five games. He has 11 catches for 176 yards and just one score this season.


Ravens' Harbaugh: 'It is a focus to get Torrey Smith going'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith is off to a slow start in 2014, totaling 11 catches for 176 yards and one touchdown through five games. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday the team will make a concerted effort to get Smith more involved on offense.

"It is a focus to get Torrey going. I'm very confident that we can do that," Harbaugh said.


Ravens' Torrey Smith limited to three grabs in Week 5 defeat


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith was heavily targeted but failed to make much of an impact in Week 5 at Indianapolis.

Smith caught three of the eight passes thrown his way for 38 yards in a 20-13 defeat. Smith has received eight targets in three of his first five games this season. He's received three targets the other two outings. He has 11 catches for 176 yards and a touchdown this season.

The Ravens will face Tampa Bay in Week 6.


Torrey Smith leads NFL in drawing interference flags


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Ravens receiver Torrey Smith has drawn five pass interference penalties, most in the NFL, notes ESPN.com. Smith also led the league in 2012 when he drew 16 such flags.

"If [pass interference] counted as points, we probably would have won by 100," Smith said of the Week 4 win over Carolina. "It happens every game, which is frustrating for me individually, but it's great that we continue to move the ball."

The interference flags Smith has drawn this year have led to 98 yards. He has eight catches for 138 yards and a touchdown.


Torrey Smith ends touchdown drought Week 4


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith scored for the first time in eight games during Sunday's 38-10 win vs. Tennessee. Smith totaled two catches for 53 yards in the Week 4 win.

Smith gave Baltimore a 28-7 lead when he hauled in a 24-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Joe Flacco with 9:51 left in the third quarter. It was his 20th career receiving touchdown.

Smith, who was targeted three times, has been held to three or fewer catches in all four games this season. The 53 yards Sunday were a season-high. 

The Ravens are back in action Week 5 at Indianapolis.


Torrey Smith remains in doldrums against Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The surprisingly slow start to the season for Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith continued Sunday in Cleveland.

Smith caught just two passes for 25 yards despite eight targets as he appeared out of sync with Joe Flacco from start to finish. His drop on 3rd and 16 with 2:30 remaining nearly doomed his team, which rallied to win.

With just six receptions for 85 yards in three games in 2014 after exploding for 1,128 yards a year ago, Smith will try to get back on track in Week 4 against Carolina.


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.

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."
