Ravens receiving duo remains confounding


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) The Ravens passing attack has vastly improved from a year ago, but you probably wouldn't be able to tell if you are one of Steve Smith or Torrey Smith's Fantasy owners, as both have remained terribly inconsistent throughout the season.

In Week 16 against the Texans, it was Torrey Smith who got loose, scoring two touchdowns on five catches, while Steve Smith was held out of the end zone. Of course, the previous two games saw Steve Smith rack up 107 yards and a touchdown on 12 catches, while Torrey was limited to just two catches and no scores while dealing with an injury.

All in all, Steve Smith has been the more productive of the two, with 975 yards to 684 for Torrey. However, Torrey has 10 total touchdowns to Steve's six, three of which came during the first four games of the season. If you can avoid them, neither player is a reliable option for Week 17, and you have to wonder whether either has much Fantasy value long term as well. 


Steve Smith among Ravens cleared to play


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Ravens wideout Steve Smith is active for the game against Jacksonville after being listed as probable with an illness. Also suiting up for Baltimore are tight end Crockett Gillmore (back), safety Anthony Levine (concussion) and offensive tackle Jah Reid (hand).

Ravens' Torrey Smith probable, Taliaferro listed as questionable


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith, who practiced for the first time this week on Friday, is considered probable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. 

Previous reports from the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson said he'd be surprised if Smith played at all Sunday.

Other probables include tight end Owen Daniels, Anthony Levine, Daryl Smith and Steve Smith

Running back Lorenzo Taliaferro, tight end Crockett Gillmore and tackle Jah Reid are questionable. 


Steve Smith improves in larger role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith saw his role in the offense grow in Week 14, however that may have just been because of Torrey Smith's knee injury.

Smith was targeted 11 times in the game, his highest total since Week 1, and hauled in seven passes, his best since Week 4. He finished the game with 70 yards and a touchdown, as he led the team in each receiving category.

Smith now has double-digit Fantasy points in two of the last three games, but his overall production has still left much to be desired, as Torrey had surpassed him in the receiving hierarchy. Given what we've seen recently, Steve is tough to rely on down the stretch, unless Torrey's knee continues to cause him problem. Keep an eye on the injury report before setting your lineup. 


Ravens' Steve Smith hauls in seven receptions Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Ravens wideout Steve Smith caught seven receptions on 11 targets for 70 yards and one touchdown during a 28-13 victory over the Dolphins Sunday.

Smith capped a 97-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown reception from Joe Flacco at the end of the first half. The seven receptions tied a season high for Smith.

The Ravens host the Jaguars Week 15.


Steve Smith shouldering part of the blame for Ravens' loss Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith, who was held to one catch for 2 yards Sunday against the Chargers, was pretty disappointed following a 34-33 loss and seemed to shoulder the blame for the defeat.

"This is a stinger," Smith said, per CSNBaltimore.com. "If you look around the locker room, a lot of people are gone and disappointed.

"I pretty much played terrible today. When I got an opportunity, I didn’t do anything. I didn’t do anything to help us offensively. I think I got a pass interference penalty, dropped two passes, and got a motion penalty. In a situation like that, they’re playing with 10 men. That falls directly on me."

Smith added the Chargers didn't have any special defensive tactics to take him out of the game plan. He almost had a touchdown catch in the fourth quarter, but the football slipped out of his grasp when he hit the ground.

"At the end of the day I have to stay focused," Smith said. "The game is a roller coaster. Each individual guy has expectations, but at the end of the day you get paid to be focused.

"You’ve got to be open-minded and you’ve got to have tough skin. You have to be able to handle the corrections and not receive it as criticism, but just plain corrections and try to move forward."


Steve Smith hits rock bottom


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith's productivity has waned in the second half of the season, and he hit a new low in Week 13 against the Chargers.

Smith, who was coming off his best performance in six weeks, was basically a non-factor Sunday. He hauled in just one pass for 2 yards, while watching teammate Torrey Smith haul in a pair of touchdowns.

Smith had four 100-yard performances during the team's first six games, and had four touchdowns in that span. He has been much less productive since, scoring once in six games, while averaging 41.0 yards per game. At this point, Fantasy owners can no longer rely on him on a weekly basis, especially with a tough matchup against the Dolphins on the way in Week 14.  


Ravens WR Steve Smith limited to one grab in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Ravens wideout Steve Smith, who came down with a touchdown reception his last time out, took a step backward in Sunday's loss to the Chargers in Week 13.

Smith caught a 2-yard pass from Joe Flacco on the second offensive series of the game and was held without a grab the rest of the way. He was targeted four times in a 34-33 defeat. 

Smith came down with 46 receptions through his first nine games. He has been held to eight receptions over his last three games. Smith will look to get back on track Week 14 at Miami.


Ravens receivers get on the same page


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) 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. 


Steve Smith scores for the first time since Week 6


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Ravens wideout Steve Smith made a spectacular 15-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter of Monday's win at New Orleans. It was his first score since Week 6 and gave him five touchdowns this season.

Smith finished with four catches on six targets for 89 yards, his highest output since Week 6. Smith plays the Chargers in Week 13.


Kubiak: Ravens WR Steve Smith still 'doing a good job'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) The recent lack of production of Ravens wideout Steve Smith is not a result of his slippage, but rather an attempt to spread the ball around, offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak has claimed.

Smith began the season with three 100-yard performances in the first four games. But he has just one in the last six and only 88 yards receiving in the past three games combined. He has been held without a touchdown since Week 6. Kubiak, however, is unconcerned.

"You have to get all of your playmakers the ball," he told the team website. "Steve is doing a good job, and hopefully we can him back on the track that he was on earlier in the year. But he's working hard, playing hard."


Ravens WR Steve Smith held under 40 yards again Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith finished with three catches for 17 yards during a 21-7 win Week 10 vs. Tennessee. He was targeted seven times and his longest catch went 12 yards.

Smith has been held to less than 40 receiving yards in three straight games. He hasn't had a touchdown in four straight games.

The Ravens are on a bye Week 11 before returning to action Week 12 at New Orleans.


Steve Smith tough to rely on now


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith is in the midst of a prolonged slump, one he will be looking to put an end to in Week 10 against the Titans.

Smith opened the season with a string of impressive performances, averaging 107.3 yards per game with three total touchdowns over the first four games. However, he has recorded 6 or fewer Fantasy points in four of the last five games, including each of the last three as the Ravens' passing game has slowed down.

Smith is still far and away the team's leader in targets, and is averaging 7.0 per game over the last five. He just hasn't been finding big plays like he was early in the season, which makes him a risky play for Sunday's matchup, against a Titans team that ranks in the middle of the pack against wide receivers this season.


As Steve Smith goes, so goes Joe Flacco


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2014) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco's biggest games this season, at least in terms of yardage, were Weeks 1, 4 and 6. Not so coincidentally, those were also wide receiver Steve Smith's biggest games. He had seven catches for 118 yards and a touchdown Week 1 against Cincinnati, seven catches for 139 yards and two touchdowns Week 4 against Carolina and five catches for 110 yards and a touchdown Week 6 at Tampa Bay.

He had five catches for 36 yards Week 9 at Pittsburgh, when Flacco had his fourth-best game in terms of yardage, finishing with 303. But while Flacco had three and five touchdown passes in Weeks 4 and 6, respectively, he had only two in this one. Yes, with his team trailing 22-10 after two quarters and every incentive to air it out in the second half, the best he could do is 303 yards and two touchdowns.

Why not better? He didn't get Smith involved, or at least the two didn't hook up downfield like they did with regularity at the beginning of the season. Smith's speed makes him a threat to score every time he touches the ball, and Flacco benefited from that as much as Smith himself in Weeks 1, 4 and 6. But when Smith fails to deliver, Flacco is limited to numbers somewhere in the Brian Hoyer range.

At wide receiver, you can put up with Smith's inconsistencies because it's to be expected for any player outside of the top tier, but at quarterback, with all the depth at the position, you need a consistent, reliable performer. And Flacco isn't it.


Ravens' Steve Smith, Owen Daniels held scoreless in Week 9 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith caught five of his eight targets for just 36 yards, while tight end Owen Daniels managed six catches on nine targets for 53 yards, but neither player was able to reach the end zone in the team's 43-23 loss to the Steelers in Week 9.

Daniels was making his return to the field after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery last week, and he saw fellow tight end Crockett Gilmore score a one-yard touchdown on his only catch. Daniels logged two receptions on the team's first three plays but didn't factor into the passing game again until the second half when the Ravens were playing from behind.

Smith started the season on fire, posting four 100-yard performances in six games while scoring four times, but he's been held to 11 receptions, 138 yards and no scores in his last three games combined. Both players will look for bigger days when they face the Titans in Week 10.


Steve Smith just a big play away


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/2014) If you own Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith in Fantasy, take a deep breath. Sure, he's saved his worst for the last two weeks after convincing you he's a must-start in Fantasy over the first six, but you have to live with some ups and downs from him. Like the Redskins' DeSean Jackson, the big play is vital to his success, and the big play doesn't happen every week.

It almost happened for Smith in Week 8. In fact, some might argue it should have happened. Smith was called for offensive pass interference on what would have been an 80-yard touchdown with less than a minute to go in the fourth quarter, but replays showed that his push off George Iloka, while not totally innocent, might not have been flagrant enough to draw a flag in every instance.

So he was an official's judgment call away from an 115-yard, touchdown-scoring performance. Wouldn't that have changed the complexion of this update?

Smith has the potential for a play like that any given week, and after going two weeks without one, I'd say he's due. I plan on starting him again Week 9 at Pittsburgh.


Ravens WR Steve Smith has quiet day in Week 8 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith caught just three of his nine targets for 35 yards in his team's 27-24 loss to the Bengals in Week 8.

Smith appeared to come up big with less than a minute left in the game, catching an 80-yard touchdown that would have put the Ravens ahead were it not for an offensive pass interference penalty called on Smith. With costarter Torrey Smith being held catchless and no one on the team totaling more than 42 receiving yards, it was an all-around poor effort for the Ravens passing game.

Smith has recorded 41 receptions, 675 yards and four touchdowns but has managed just three catches in each of his last two games. His next test will come in Pittsburgh against the Ravens in Week 9.


Ravens announce Week 8 inactives vs. Bengals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Ravens have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 8 matchup with the Bengals: tight end Owen Daniels (wrist), defensive lineman Chris Canty (wrist), running back Bernard Pierce, cornerback Chykie Brown, linebacker Arthur Brown and offensive linemen Gino Gradkowski and Jah Reid.

Pierce's de-activation comes as a surprise, but he's averaged 2.1 and 2.6 yards per carry in the team's last two games, though he's scored a touchdown in each. The Ravens' goal-line looks could shift to Lorenzo Taliaferro with Pierce unavailable.

Daniels and Canty had already been ruled out, but the Ravens are otherwise very healthy heading into the key matchup against the Bengals. Four players listed as probable are active for the game, including Steve Smith (not injury related), linebacker Daryl Smith (not injury related) and offensive linemen Eugene Monroe (knee) and Kelechi Osemele (knee).


Ravens unveil final injury report for Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) The Ravens have officially ruled Chris Canty (wrist) and Owen Daniels (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Meanwhile, Eugene Monroe (knee), Kelechi Osemele (knee), Daryl Smith (rest) and Steve Smith Sr. (rest) were all labeled probable for Week 8.

Ravens WR Steve Smith surpasses 60 yards again Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith finished with three catches for 67 yards during a 29-7 win Week 7 vs. Atlanta. His longest catch went 49 yards and he was targeted five times.

Smith has surpassed 60 receiving yards in all but one of seven games this season. The Ravens are back in action Week 8 at Cincinnati.


Steve Smith should keep soaring vs. Falcons


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith is in the midst of a career renaissance, and will have a good chance to keep it up in Week 7 against the Falcons.

Smith topped the 100-yard mark for the fourth time in six games last week, and the 35-year-old will be looking to do so again in Week 7. If he does, he will be fourth receiver to do so against the Falcons, who have struggled to keep up with opposing passing games so far. The Falcons are allowing the 20th most Fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season, with six reaching double figures against them.

Smith has defied the odds so far, as the only player over the age of 30 in the top 10 in receiving yards. He should continue rolling against a good matchup, so keep Smith active for Week 7. 


Ravens' Steve Smith goes over 100 yards again Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Ravens wideout Steve Smith went over 100 receiving yards Week 6.

Smith didn't receive a target until the end of the first quarter, and didn't make his first catch until the second quarter. The catch was a big one, as Smith hauled in a 56 yard touchdown from Joe Flacco. Smith would make another catch during the quarter. The rest of his work all came on one drive in the third. Smith hauled in passes of 11, 14 and 18 yards during the drive. Bernard Pierce finished things off with a 4 yard score.

Smith will look for more Week 7 against the Falcons. 


Steve Smith a good bet to rebound


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/2014) Though Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith couldn't follow up his season-best performance with even adequate numbers Week 5 at Indianapolis, keep in mind his two-touchdown effort against the Panthers in Week 4 wasn't his only high point of the season so far. In fact, he went for 100-plus yards in three of his first four games.

So really, his Week 5 breakdown was more of an outlier than his Week 4 breakout, which means you should like his chances of a rebound Week 6 at Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers have been dreadful against the pass this season, allowing 302.5 yards per game, second-most in the league. They've also allowed the fourth-most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers.

Despite the poor showing last week, Smith still ranks sixth among all wide receivers with 49 targets, so it's not like he's just getting a bunch of fluky big plays. With a matchup like this one, he's a must-start in Fantasy.


Ravens WR Steve Smith limited to season-low 34 yards Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith endured a rough outing Sunday afternoon at Indianapolis in Week 5.

Smith coughed up the ball after making a catch of the first offensive play of the game for the Ravens. He was targeted seven times and finished with five grabs for a season-low 34 yards in a 20-13 defeat. Smith has 30 catches for 463 yards and three touchdowns this season.

The Ravens will travel to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers in Week 6.


Terrell Suggs among injured Ravens players cleared for Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The following players on the injury report were ruled active for the Ravens in Week 5 at Indianapolis: Chykie Brown (neck), Owen Daniels (not injury related), Bernard Pierce (thigh), Steve Smith (not injury related) and Terrell Suggs (thigh).
