Summary

When Ray Lewis retired the Ravens signed Daryl Smith to provide veteran leadership while they searched for a long term answer a inside linebacker. The team got more than they bargained for in Smith. Not only has he been an excellent mentor for young C.J. Mosley, Smith has been an outstanding performer on the field. His solo tackle numbers are less than impressive but he more than makes up for it in other areas. In two seasons with the team Smith has averaged 63 solo tackles and 63 assists but has added 6 sacks, 4 interceptions, 5 forced fumbles, a recovery, 27 passes defended and a score on the way to a pair of top fifteen finishes among linebackers. Smith is 33 years old and nearing the twilight of his career but he still packs a good deal of fantasy value for at least the 2015 season. (May 23)
