Ravens | Steve Smith posted six receptions

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 21:19:06 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith Sr. managed six catches for 53 yards in the Week 13 game against the Miami Dolphins. He was targeted 10 times.

Fantasy Tip: Smith continues to make a splash, even at 37 years of age, snagging four or more receptions in five straight games, and seven of the past eight outings. He is a decent WR3 in PPR formats, and a viable WR4 in most standard leagues heading into Week 14 against the New England Patriots.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle), caught four passes for 47 yards, including a 30-yard catch in the first quarter, in a 21-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was Smith's first game back after missing two games due to an ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: Smith should be given consideration as a WR3 or even someone to leave on your bench for use during bye weeks. That said, this was a good return for the veteran wideout.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) said he will be able to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 9.

Ravens | Steve Smith's status remains uncertain

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 06:44:28 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is expected to work out on the field one hour before the team's inactive list is due for Week 9's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens' offensive staff is designing their game plan as if he will be able to play.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was able to practice twice during the week but hasn't suited up for a game since Week 5, making him a risky play in all fantasy formats. Owners should have alternate options on hand in case he is deactivated.

Ravens | Steve Smith gets in a full practice

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 12:07:18 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Nov. 4. He's being listed as questionable for the team's Week 9 contest Sunday, Nov. 6, versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: The 16-year veteran hasn't suited up since Week 5, but after getting in two practices this week, it appears he'll be able to make his return on Sunday opposite the arch-nemesis Steelers. Smith has always been a favorite target of Joe Flacco's since arriving in Baltimore a few years ago, but owners shouldn't be surprised if he underachieves in his first game back, being at less than 100 percent health.

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 18:40:11 -0700

Ravens | Steve Smith listed as doubtful again

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 11:59:08 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) has been listed as doubtful for the team's Week 7 game Sunday, Oct. 23, versus the New York Jets. He also sat out practice again Friday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Smith hasn't practiced all week, so it certainly looks likely that he'll be sitting out his second straight contest. Kamar Aiken should get a boost again in his absence, but after attracting six targets last week, he's not a very safe WR3 option to lean on for Week 7.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) remains out of practice Thursday, Oct. 20.

Fantasy Tip: He's probably not going to suit up against the New York Jets this week. Kamar Aiken will be a low-end flex consideration.

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 08:40:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) will not play in Week 6's game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Smith hadn't practiced all week and it's possible that he could miss an extended period of time, so this news isn't surprising. WRs Mike Wallace and Kamar Aiken and TE Dennis Pitta should see increased targets in his absence.

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 06:45:06 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is not expected to play in Week 6's game against the New York Giants.

Ravens | Steve Smith tabbed doubtful for Week 6

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 12:39:59 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is being listed as doubtful for the team's Week 6 game Sunday, Oct. 16, against the New York Giants. He missed practice again Friday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Baltimore's receiving core is severely banged up at the moment, as not only is Smith likely to miss Sunday's contest, but fellow veteran wide-out Mike Wallace is being considered questionable to suit up. If he does manage to play, he'd receive a big boost as long as Smith is sidelined. However, if both talented receivers can't play, Kamar Aiken would find himself in a big role again.

Ravens | Steve Smith misses practice Friday

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 10:24:57 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) sat out of practice again Friday, Oct. 14, and has yet to practice this week as the team continues to prepare for its Week 6 showdown with the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: There are reports that have suggested Smith is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which means the aging veteran could be on the shelf or limited in some capacity for the next month or so. Owners of Mike Wallace, Dennis Pitta and Kamar Aiken - likely in that order - figure to benefit the most from his absence in fantasy.

Ravens | Steve Smith sits out again

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 09:17:25 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Smith may not be able to play in Week 6, but owners should still monitor the situation. Dennis Pitta and Mike Wallace probably would be the top options in the passing game for the Ravens. Pitta could be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end, while Wallace can be a No. 3 receiver if he plays.

Ravens | Steve Smith misses practice

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 11:49:51 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Smith suffered the injury in Week 5 and may need more than a week to recover from the injury. Owners can keep an eye on his status throughout the week but should have other options ready to use in case Smith is ruled out.

Ravens | Steve Smith unlikely for Week 6

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 08:54:46 -0700

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 6, in the opinion of beat writer Jamison Hensley. Hensley expressed the doubt in an interview on Sirius XM Fantasy radio Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Kamar Aiken is expected to receive heavier attention, and he needs it with a 6-28-0 line on the season. Aiken could emerge into the flex discussion against the New York Giants.

Ravens | Steve Smith out of practice

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 08:29:56 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (ankle) is out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has a 27-310-1 line on the year, and he was targeted 11 times each in Weeks 3 and 4. He remains an impactful receiver in fantasy, but he's very iffy for Week 6. Kamar Aiken could sneak into the flex discussion against the New York Giants.

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 15:16:13 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (leg) caught three passes for 29 yards against the Washington Redskins in Week 5 before he left because of an injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days to see if Smith has a chance to play in Week 6. Smith could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option if he plays, but owners will need other options ready in case he is ruled out.

Ravens | Steve Smith ruled out

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 12:36:56 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (leg) is out for the remainder of the game Sunday, Oct. 9, against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Depending on the severity of the injury, which won't be known until X-rays and other tests are done, this could be a potential stumbling block for the Ravens and for fantasy owners' teams. If Smith can't go, Kamar Aiken and Mike Wallace could see immediate benefits.

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 11:14:42 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (leg) suffered an apparent leg injury during the team's Week 5 game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Smith will be able to return to the game or if the injury will keep him out longer. Smith is a solid starting option in all leagues when he is healthy.

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 19:49:23 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith rolled up eight receptions for 111 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders. He was targeted a team-high 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: The ageless Smith keeps on rolling, as his yardage totals have increased in every game so far this season. He has been targeted 22 times in the past two games, posting 16 receptions for 198 yards and a touchdown. He remains a decent WR2 in most fantasy leagues.

Ravens | Steve Smith to shine in Week 4?

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 20:32:39 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith faces the Oakland Raiders in Week 4, and last year, he had 10 catches for 150 yards against Oakland.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is coming off an eight-catch, 87-yard performance last week, and he is a viable WR3 against an Oakland secondary that has allowed some big games to receivers this year.

Ravens | Steve Smith receives day off

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 17:15:09 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Smith should be fine for the team's Week 4 game and should have a big role in the passing game. His receiving yards have improved in each of the last two games and should be an attractive option for owners in all leagues because of the matchup.

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 14:42:02 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith caught eight passes for 87 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3.

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 14:36:55 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith caught three passes for 64 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was targeted six times during the game and will continue to be one of the starting wide receivers for the Ravens. He should be a reliable option for fantasy owners this season as a No. 3 receiver or a flex option.

Ravens | Steve Smith held in check

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 14:23:27 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith caught five passes for 19 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Smith led the team in receptions and targets during the game and likely will post better numbers as the season goes on. He should be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Ravens | Baltimore confident in Steve Smith

Sat, 10 Sep 2016 09:52:02 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith is still a "great player" in the mind of head coach John Harbaugh, who suggested there is "no reason" why he will not play "great" against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Harbaugh may be confident in his 37-year-old receiver, but that doesn't mean fantasy owners should be. Smith did not play a single preseason snap after tearing his Achilles' midway through last season, so it would be a major upset if he had a huge game at any point early this season. Owners need to treat him as something of a high-risk WR4 at best until he actually puts something on tape post-injury. Mike Wallace and Kamar Aiken should be the top Baltimore receivers in 2016.

Ravens | Two Baltimore receivers won't play

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 13:29:47 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WRs Steve Smith (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee) are not expected to play Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Detroit Lions. They did not practice Thursday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Both players have been dealing with injuries this offseason, and Smith is especially no surprise to be sitting out preseason action. Perriman is more disappointing as we haven't seen much of him over his first two years. As it stands, Smith is in low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 territory, while Perriman is more of a deep flier in later rounds.

Ravens | Kamar Aiken's numbers could suffer

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 21:49:05 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Kamar Aiken had 25 catches for 333 yards in eight games with WR Steve Smith last year, and Aiken had 50 catches for 611 yards in the eight games Smith missed.

Fantasy Tip: Aiken is a popular fantasy sleeper, but if Smith and Breshad Perriman stay healthy, Aiken could struggle to make an impact. He is worth a late-round grab, but don't overpay.

Ravens | Steve Smith activated

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 11:04:24 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, Aug. 17, and likely will participate in practice Monday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will have a few weeks to prepare for the start of the season but will be the top target for Joe Flacco this season. Smith is one of the older receivers in the NFL but should still be a solid No. 4 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Ravens | Steve Smith's injury was more severe

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 07:20:08 -0700

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') suffered a double rupture of his Achilles' last season, which surgeon, Robert Anderson, said was the first one he had ever seen.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's tenacity and will has always been great. However, "Father Time" is undefeated. At 37, coming back from this catastrophic injury, it looks really bleak that Smith can be a dependable fantasy receiver. He'll be in the WR4 mix, but that's an area where you can find receivers with upside.

Ravens | Two BAL receivers idle

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 06:40:27 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') and WR Breshad Perriman (knee) are out of practice Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Smith still holds clout in fantasy, but at 37, it's hard to envision a return to anything more than desperation WR3 or a high-end WR4. Perriman has the talent worth rolling the dice on as a WR5.

Ravens | Ravens players placed on PUP list

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 12:30:25 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles'), WR Breshad Perriman (knee) and RB Trent Richardson (knee) were placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Smith and Perriman are still expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, although neither of them will probably play much in the preseason. Richardson can be avoided in fantasy drafts, while Smith and Perriman should be drafted as a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 and WR5, respectively.

Ravens | Kamar Aiken not a projected starter

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 16:07:18 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WRs Steve Smith and Mike Wallace are projected as the two starting wide receivers for Baltimore, according to ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Fantasy Tip: Aiken should still see a decent amount of targets even with Smith, Wallace and Breshad Perriman in the mix. Even with the large number of mouths to feed, Aiken is still a WR4 consideration heading into 2016.

Ravens | Steve Smith won't play much

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 16:33:59 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') probably won't play much in the preseason, if at all, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: The Ravens want to give their best wide receiver all the rest he can get while not risking aggravation. Smith is best drafted as a WR3 this offseason.

Ravens | Steve Smith day-to-day

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:02:37 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') said he is day-to-day and is being smart with his rehabilitation. He is not concerned with playing the preseason if it does not happen.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Smith to take it easy for the rest of the offseason so as to not aggravate his Achilles' ailment. If he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he's worth a look as a WR3 as Baltimore's top receiving threat.

Ravens | Steve Smith to miss minicamp

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 21:58:37 -0700

As expected, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') is not expected to participate in the team's three-day minicamp as he continues to rehab his Achilles' injury. He might be able for training camp and the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Watch Smith closely in July and August, as that will be a better determining factor on whether he'll be ready for Week 1 or not. He is expected to top the depth chart in Baltimore, so if he is healthy he would be a decent WR3/4 or flex option despite his advanced age. But make sure he is heathy first.

Ravens | No timetable for Steve Smith

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 14:06:26 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') has not be able to participate in organized team activities this offseason and is not sure when he will be able to return. Smith said he will need to do something during training camp in order to be ready for the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Smith will be able to do anything during training camp. He will be the No. 1 receiver in 2016 if he is healthy but is a risky fantasy option at this point. He probably should be considered a middle- to late-round option in drafts.

Ravens | Steve Smith thinks he'll be ready

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 07:07:55 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') is confident he'll be ready for Week 1 after suffering a torn right Achilles' last season. "No setbacks. No real pain where you'd say, 'Oh, that's a concern,'" Smith said. "Just all good stuff to start and move forward."

Fantasy Tip: Smith shouldn't be taken as more than a WR4 due to his age and the significance the injury can have on a speed receiver.

Ravens | Steve Smith should be ready to go

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 14:48:37 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') is expected to be ready to go for the start of the regular season, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has had and will have plenty of time to recover from the torn Achilles' tendon he suffered last season. There's always a risk in drafting a player coming off a serious injury, particularly at Smith's older age, but he should still be viewed as a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.

Ravens | Baltimore wants to add receiver

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 15:04:09 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WRs Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken, Breshad Perriman and others may have more company next season. General manager Ozzie Newsome said the Ravens have to add depth at wide receiver this offseason, whether it be through the NFL Draft or through free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Unless it's a big-name free agent that joins the Ravens, it's likely that Smith and Aiken will maintain their positions as the top two wide receivers in Baltimore. Perriman has yet to show his full potential after being injured for the better part of his rookie season, but he could come onto the scene in 2016.

Ravens | Steve Smith expected to be ready

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 11:27:04 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') is expected to be ready for training camp this summer, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will be 37 years old for the 2016 season. He was performing admirably up until his season-ending Achilles' injury this year, though, so don't put it past him to put up at least flex-worth numbers if he can stay healthy.

Ravens | Steve Smith out of walking boot

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 10:30:34 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') shed his walking boot Monday, Jan. 4, after eight weeks, and he said he has more four more weeks of rest before he can start to move around. "I won't be ahead of schedule. If anything, to be safe, I'll be behind schedule. With an injury like this, you don't want to be ahead of schedule. That takes away a lot of stuff."

Fantasy Tip: Even at age 36, Smith was having a fine season before his injury, catching 46 passes for 670 yards and three touchdowns through seven games. He'll be 37 for the 2016 season, but he can still be productive if you don't overvalue him on your fantasy squad as anything more than a WR3 of flex player.

Ravens | Steve Smith coming back in 2016

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 09:29:49 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith announced on his Twitter account Wednesday, Dec. 30, that he will officially return to the Ravens in 2016. Smith previously had announced before the season that he would retire.

Fantasy Tip: A torn Achilles' midway through the season changed things for Smith, and he wants to go out on his own terms next year. Smith was very impressive in the seven games he did play, catching 46 passes for 670 yards and three touchdowns. He'll have his flashes next season with Baltimore, but at his age (36), you shouldn't view him as anything more than a high-end WR4.

Ravens | Steve Smith eyeing return in 2016

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 08:21:58 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (Achilles') is hopeful to return to the NFL next season, provided that he is healthy enough to do so, according to multiple sources who have maintained regular contact with him. He is no longer using a walking boot and has resorted to hydrotherapy in order to minimize atrophy.

Fantasy Tip: Smith may be leaning towards returning in 2016 because he doesn't want to end his career on an injury. He would be playing on the final season of a three-year, $10.5 million deal. Fantasy owners should monitor this situation throughout the offseason to see if Smith comes back.
