Ravens | Torrey Smith probable

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 11:31:10 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Smith is ready to play after missing two practices earlier in the week. Smith does have a favorable matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars but could also be seen as a risky option because of the injury. Smith costs $5,800 on FantasyScore and could be a good option if he is not affected by the injury.

Ravens | Torrey Smith practicing

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 08:24:18 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) is participating in practice Friday, Dec. 12. Smith looks gimpy and uncomfortable running routes.

Fantasy Tip: While it is good news that Smith is on the practice field, it seems likely he will be limited in the team's Week 15 game. Smith will cost $5,800 in FantasyScore, but there are probably better options available to you this week.

Ravens | Torrey Smith sits

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 13:09:46 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: This is not a great sign for Smith, who missed his second straight day of practice. He should be avoided in FantasyScore, where he costs $5,800. There are probably better options available to you.

Ravens | Torrey Smith sitting out

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 11:05:15 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's status for Week 15 is uncertain because of his knee injury. Smith costs $5,800 on FantasyScore but would be a risky option because of the injury. Kamar Aiken could receive more playing time if Smith misses the game and could be a cheap flex option at $3,000.

Ravens | Torrey Smith has knee sprain

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 13:08:11 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) has a sprained knee, according to head coach John Harbaugh. There was no further information on Smith's status or timetable.

Fantasy Tip: If Smith is misses this week or an extended period of time, Kamar Aiken would be worth adding in seasonal leagues and would make for a cheap investment on FantasyScore. Aiken caught six passes for 65 yards and a touchdown with Smith injured in Week 14.

Ravens | Torrey Smith used as decoy

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 15:50:29 -0800

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) had his knee swell during pregame warmups before the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins. Inactives had already been set by the time his injury happened. He knew he would be used just as a decoy.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ended up with zero targets and no offensive statistics, making it a lost day for anyone who used him in FantasyScore.

Ravens | Torrey Smith active for Week 14

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 09:09:52 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) is active for the team's Week 14 game.

Fantasy Tip: Smith missed a few days of practice this week but looks like he will be a full go for Week 14. Smith has caught four touchdown passes in his last four games and has posted solid receiving yards in those games. Smith costs $5,800 on FantasyScore and could be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for owners.

Ravens | Torrey Smith listed as probable

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 13:28:30 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 5, and is probable for Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins. Smith was optimistic about his chances of playing on Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Smith to play and be matched up with Brent Grimes, the Dolphins' best cornerback. Smith ($5,800) has been hot in recent weeks, so unless his knee really bothers him, he should be a solid FantasyScore selection.

Ravens | Two Ravens skill players to practice

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 10:20:03 -0800

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (knee) and WR Torrey Smith (knee) both were expected to practice on Friday, Dec. 5, all along, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: It is a good sign that both Forsett and Smith are practicing Friday, and both should be good to go for Week 14. Forsett (6,800) is a good option in FantasyScore this week if he is good to go. Smith ($5,800) is a bit of a risky start in FantasyScore as the Dolphins have had one of the better fantasy defenses against the pass.

Ravens | Torrey Smith feeling better

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 15:50:01 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) said his right knee has progressed with treatment and rest the past few days.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,800, 11.6%) hasn't practiced the last couple days, but this is certainly promising news. However, the Miami Dolphins have one of the better fantasy defenses against wide receivers this year, so Smith might be a risky option.

Ravens | Torrey Smith not on the field

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 10:55:29 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has missed the last two days of practice, and his status for Week 14 may be in question. Smith costs $5,800 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to look to use healthier option in case Smith is not able to play.

Ravens | Torrey Smith sitting out Wednesday

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 14:56:09 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) did not practice because of a right knee injury Wednesday, Dec. 3, but head coach John Harbaugh expects Smith to be ready to face the Miami Dolphins in Week 14. Smith's limp has subsided in recent days.

Fantasy Tip: You have to wonder if Smith's knee ailment will slow him down against the Dolphins, especially if he's covered by Brent Grimes. That's enough to make you cautious at FantasyScore, but his price of $5,800 makes it more justifiable if he's on the field.

Ravens | Torrey Smith progressing

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 12:11:25 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) is making progress with his knee injury, according to head coach John Harbaugh. The injury is not considered serious.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,800, 11.6%) is on a bit of hot streak of late but faces a tough test in the Miami Dolphins this week. If he's limited at all, it might be best to look elsewhere at wide receiver on FantasyScore.

Ravens | Torrey Smith should be fine

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 14:13:24 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) should be able to play in Week 14 even though he suffered a knee injury in Week 13, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said the injury is not serious and considers Smith day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been playing well over the last month with four touchdowns in his last four games. Owners will need to see if Smith is able to practice during the week or if the injury is affecting his status. Smith will be playing against an above average Miami Dolphins defense in Week 14, which could hurt his fantasy value.

Ravens | Torrey Smith injury not serious

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 13:27:01 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith's (knee) injury is not considered serious, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has really been coming on of late, averaging five catches and scoring four times in his last four games. He faces a better than average defense against wide receivers in the Miami Dolphins this week, however.

Ravens | Torrey Smith limping after game

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 19:48:40 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (knee) limped off in the Week 13 game against the San Diego Chargers favoring his right knee. He is expected to undergo further testing Monday, Dec. 1, to determine the severity of his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Smith posted six grabs for 65 yards and two touchdowns on eight targets before departing. If he can return to the lineup in Week 14, he appears to be trending upward for FantasyScore owners, but he comes with a cap-friendly price tag.

Ravens | Torrey Smith, Joe Flacco not clicking

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 11:57:58 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith has been the intended target for five of QB Joe Flacco's seven interceptions this season, which is tied for the most interceptions when targeting a receiver. Smith has also caught only 46.2 percent of the passes thrown to him this season.

Fantasy Tip: Smith scored three touchdowns in the previous two games but did not catch any passes in Week 8. Smith has had a bit of an up and down season but will look to improve his connection with Flacco. Smith probably is a No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver most weeks.

Ravens | Torrey Smith available to play

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 12:20:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith (head) has been given his helmet back and is available to play after being evaluated for a concussion earlier in the game.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Smith did not suffer a concussion and can play again in Week 8 if needed. Owners will still need to monitor his status during practice next week to see if he has any problems.

Ravens | Torrey Smith has concussion

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 12:02:44 -0700

Ravens | Torrey Smith finding end zone

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 10:23:42 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith has caught two touchdown passes in the first quarter of the team's Week 6 game.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been fairly quiet so far this season but has played well so far in Week 6. He should be a starting wide receiver option in most weeks.

Ravens | Torrey Smith having down year

Tue, 07 Oct 2014 06:46:27 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith has just 11 catches for 176 yards and a touchdown in the first five games this season. Smith is in the final year of his rookie deal, and a new deal is not imminent, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is still a good deep threat, but he has hauled in just 11 of his 30 targets. He is really a boom-or-bust type of player on FantasyScore each week. His $5,300 (10.6% of your cap) price tag is an average price to pay if you think this is the week he breaks out in Tampa.

Ravens | Torrey Smith finds end zone

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 17:59:15 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith had a pair of receptions for 53 yards in Week 4 against the Carolina Panthers. One was good for a 29-yard touchdown, his first of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Earlier this week, Smith vowed to be better, and fantasy owners saw some improvement. He still has a long way to go before he re-emerges as a bona fide must-start fantasy receiver, but this was definitely a start.

Ravens | Torrey Smith determined to improve

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 17:08:32 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith is determined to turn things around after his dismal start through the first three games, according to reports. After posting a team-high 1,128 receiving yards with 65 receptions a year ago, he is on pace for just 453 yards and 32 receptions this season. WR Steve Smith has become the center of attention in the receiving game, and Torrey Smith is second fiddle. "I have folks tweeting me how terrible I am, and I could very easily have had three touchdowns and 300 yards the past couple weeks. That's how the ball rolls. I'm not used to it, but we'll get over it soon. (He and QB Joe Flacco) were as close as you can get to touchdowns. We just have to be on the same page and get it done," Smith said.

Fantasy Tip: The loss of Dennis Pitta to a season-ending injury will help Smith become more of a factor in the passing game by default. While he cannot yet be trusted by owners in FantasyScore, especially with a difficult matchup in Week 4, he is still worth keeping on a roster in weekly leagues for his potential.

Ravens | Steve Smith targeted heavily

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 05:46:49 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith was targeted 10 times in Week 2 and hauled in six catches for 71 yards. WR Torrey Smith had just three targets and caught one pass for 10 yards in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Smith looks to be Joe Flacco's new favorite target. At $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore, he was a decent buy this week. Torrey Smith could be the bargain next week depending on how much Steve Smith's price tag jumps.

Ravens | Potential contract extensions for Haloti Ngata and Torrey Smith?

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 13:08:03 -0700

Baltimore Ravens DT Haloti Ngata and WR Torrey Smith are potential targets for contract extensions before training camp.. Smith is entering the last season of his rookie deal, and Ngata has two years remaining on his team-high $16 million contract. Both players have said they don't want to play anywhere else, and with a bit of salary cap room and no gaping holes on their roster, it may be the right time to attempt to secure Ngata and Smith. Keeping them with the organization is a priority for the Ravens.

Ravens | Torrey Smith a one-trick pony?

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 12:37:30 -0700

One anonymous general manager said that Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith is "a bit of a one-trick pony (as a downfield threat)." Of the 130 passes that were thrown to Smith last year, 26 percent went over 20 yards in the air, and he led all NFL players in the most targets and routes run on passes that traveled over 20 yards. In 2013, he had only 39 catches on throws that went 10 yards or less, which ranked him 71st among receivers in the league. WR Steve Smith's presence in the offense could limit opposing defenses from bracketing their coverages on Smith all game long. Also, offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak is known for not taking too many downfield shots.

Fantasy Tip: Smith had a career year in 2013, but his dependence on the deep ball is definitely concerning, especially for fantasy owners in PPR leagues. Smith remains a much better play in standard-scoring formats, and Steve Smith shouldn't have an adverse effect on his value.

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 08:17:29 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith had five catches for 92 yards in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has put up underwhelming fantasy totals each of the first three games, which has given off the perception that he's not producing. However, he has attained 92 yards, 85 yards and 92 yards, respectively. He just hasn't reached the end zone yet. He's a potential buy-low candidate.

Ravens | Jacoby Jones to have MRI

Fri, 06 Sep 2013 05:18:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones (knee) will have an MRI on his right knee Friday, Sept. 6. He was injured when he was barreled into by his own player after signaling for a fair catch on a punt return.

Fantasy Tip: The Ravens offense wasn't able to move the ball after Jones went down. Torrey Smith was covered all night, and the tight ends dropped balls all over Mile High. They may look to bring in some outside help.

Broncos | Champ Bailey doesn't expect to play

Wed, 04 Sep 2013 11:18:21 -0700

Denver Broncos CB Champ Bailey (foot) is pessimistic about his chances of suiting up in the team's Week 1 game against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Sept. 5, due to a foot sprain. He said Monday, Sept. 2, that he was "very close" to being ready, but he's still "up in the air."

Fantasy Tip: If Bailey doesn't play, they'll be without one of their top corners and pass rushers in Von Miller. That would benefit Joe Flacco and each of his deep-threat options in the passing game, Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones. Smith is a must-start for this reason, and Jones makes for a decent flex play, at least, in standard formats.

Ravens | Joe Flacco confident despite personnel losses

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 09:02:34 -0700

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco is confident the team will overcome the offseason departure of WR Anquan Boldin, and loss of TE Dennis Pitta (hip) to injury. WR Jacoby Jones is expected to see plenty of opportunity on the outside with WR Torrey Smith, and Flacco mentioned WRs Tandon Doss and Deonte Thompson as candidates who could step up on the inside. "I think the one thing that Deonte gives you that you normally don't have in the middle is that speed," Flacco said. "Normally, those guys are on the outside. He gives you that speed in there. Tandon is that real strong-handed guy that can go up and make some catches for you. He's got a good feel for how to run the routes in there."

Ravens | Tandon Doss could become No. 2 wideout

Thu, 20 Jun 2013 09:28:18 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Tandon Doss frequently ran with starters Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones during last week's mandatory minicamp. It's uncertain whether Baltimore will establish Jones as the No. 2 wideout, which would lessen his duties in the return game, which is a strength of his. Doss still needs to prove himself as an everydown wideout despite the fact he's made a few noteworthy plays in camp.

Fantasy Tip: Doss' potential workload increase makes him a late-rounds fantasy sleeper in more voluminous setups.
