Ravens | Steve Smith could sing swan song

Fri, 29 May 2015 08:48:33 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith could be entering his final season at the age of 36 in 2015. Smith signed a three-year deal with the team in 2014 and planned to play at least two of those years. He left it open for playing another season beyond this one. "I really don't have the family structure to chase 40, to be honest," Smith said. "I have got a lot of things on my to-do list that don't have anything to do with football. I'm going to take it day by day, but I will not be playing until I'm 40."

Fantasy Tip: Smith got off to a huge start last season and eventually came back to Earth. He had a 41-675-4 line in his first eight games but tailed off with a 38-390-2 line in his last eight. Don't be tantalized by his early season totals on draft day, and he's a low-end WR2 in PPR.

Ravens | Steve Smith may see less snaps

Tue, 19 May 2015 18:31:23 -0700

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith could see his snaps drop this season, because the team wants to keep him healthy during the season, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will be 36 years old when the season starts, so it may be a good idea to lessen his workload. He posted 79 catches, 1.065 yards and six touchdowns this past season but could see a dip in his stats if he does see less time. Smith could still be a solid option in the middle rounds of drafts next season.

Sun, 11 Jan 2015 08:24:45 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith plans to play next season, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Smith had a strong first season with the Ravens and should continue to have a solid role in the passing game next season. Smith likely will be taken in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts next season.

Ravens | Steve Smith shaken up

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 14:22:15 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (leg) was down at the conclusion of the first quarter of the divisional-playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10. He missed one play and returned to the game.

Fantasy Tip: He appeared to be clutching his left leg in the hamstring or knee area and was shown on the sideline walking it off. It apparently isn't serious, but it's something to watch moving forward.

Ravens | Steve Smith strong early

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 14:02:40 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith has three catches midway through the first quarter, including a touchdown. NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth said that teams have attacked New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis with crossing patterns in recent weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has caught three balls for 44 yards, including that touchdown, on crossing routes. He appears to have been a good bet at $5,900 on FantasyScore early on.

Ravens | Steve Smith to meet Revis Island

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 07:01:12 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith is expected to line up against New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis for most of the divisional-round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,900; 11.8% of your cap) has a tough matchup and has really fallen off since the early part of the season. Smith is a WR2 with a dark matchup cloud over him on FantasyScore.

Ravens | Steve Smith has little success against Revis

Tue, 06 Jan 2015 09:59:21 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith has been held to just two catches for 21 yards in three games when he's been matched up against New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis in his career, according to Pro Football Focus. QB Joe Flacco has thrown Revis' way a total of three times out of 164 snaps against the Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear exactly who Revis will be covering this weekend, but it would make more sense for him to be matched up with Steve Smith. That doesn't make Smith an attractive FantasyScore option, and Flacco shouldn't be high on your list for QBs, either.

Ravens | Steve Smith slowing down?

Sat, 27 Dec 2014 19:46:20 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith has been held to less than 50 receiving yards in six of his last nine games. He has also failed to reach 100 receiving yards in any game during the same stretch after reaching the mark in four of the first six games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Smith appeared to be reborn in Baltimore when the year began, but the veteran has really tailed off. At this point, he isn't even worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore.

Ravens | Steve Smith reaches milestone

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 20:12:30 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith became the 18th player in NFL history with 900 career catches in the Week 15 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Smith posted five receptions for 37 yards on five targets. It was a disappointing game for FantasyScore owners against a poor Jacksonville pass defense.

Ravens | Steve Smith expected to play

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 11:31:57 -0800

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (illness) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 12, but is listed as probable for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Smith probably is dealing with a minor illness and should be fine for Week 15. Smith has caught two touchdowns in his last three games but has been a bit inconsistent in the second half of the season. Smith costs $5,100 on FantasyScore and could be a wide receiver or flex option because of his favorable matchup.
