Summary

Steve Smith enters this season coming off a torn Achilles' tendon that he suffered in Week 8 last season. It's an injury from which not many players have recovered, meaning that the 37 year-old Smith has yet another uphill climb, which he typically treats as opportunities to prove doubters incorrect. However, Smith missed all of OTAs and opened training camp on the PUP list. He has been activated from PUP, which is a great sign for his Week 1 potential. If Smith can get back to health for the regular season, he's unlikely to be the downfield threat due to his age and a potential loss of speed from the injury. Smith will likely be tasked with being more of a possession receiver and working intermediate parts of the field. When Baltimore needs a big third down play, Smith will be the guy targeted by Joe Flacco. His tight-area quickness can still be an asset if his recovery is successful. His progress throughout the rest of camp will be one of the biggest stories in Baltimore. (August 21)

Ravens | Kamar Aiken's numbers could suffer (Fri Aug 19, 12:49 AM) - 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.

Our View: Aiken was a good sleeper going at least 3-4 rounds after his high level of production in the second half of 2015, but Smith's return greatly caps his upside unless Smith suffers a setback or is a shadow of himself. He's dropping on our draft radar.

Ravens | Steve Smith activated (Wed Aug 17, 02:04 PM) - 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.

Our View: We are so happy that Smith didn't retire. He may not be the player he used to be, but Smith has made a career of proving people wrong. We expect him to help move the chains for the Ravens passing game and see him as a WR5 for fantasy owners in 2016.
