Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News


Heading into the 2013 season the Ravens signed Daryl Smith to a one year deal, expecting him to be a veteran option as depth at inside linebacker. Smith took the opportunity and ran with it. He quickly proved to be much more than the team expected, winning the starting job well before the season opener. Smith impressed so much in fact, that he was inked to an extension this offseason and will remain a starter heading into 2014. He is not the tackling machine that Ray Lewis was, but Smith brings a lot to the table. Experience, leadership, coverage skills and play making ability are among his positive traits. In fantasy terms Smith's 2013 production was a bit unusual in that he totaled over 210 points despite finishing with just 57 solo tackles. His 66 assists, 18 passes defended, 5 sacks and 5 takeaways will be hard to repeat and his overall value is likely to diminish with the addition of tackling machine C.J. Mosley. Smith however, should remain a solid option as an LB2 or an excellent third starter for most fantasy owners. (May 26)
