Summary

Steve Smith comes over to Baltimore after being released by Carolina. He has had a fantastic career, including a true renaissance that began in 2012 and continued last season. That career revival, however, is likely over - particularly from a production standpoint. Baltimore's ideal philosophy isn't that of a team that can support two dynamic wide receivers. This is a run-first team (and will attempt to remain one, even with a new offensive coordinator in Gary Kubiak). When the team does pass, it has very viable pass-catchers outside the receiver position, leaving fewer targets for its secondary wideout than most teams. (May 14)

Ravens | Steve Smith impressing (Wed Jul 23, 05:40 PM) - Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith's hands have impressed Ravens QB Joe Flacco. 'Just his natural ability to catch the ball with his hands,' Flacco said. 'He catches everything with his hands, and he does a great job doing it.'

Our View: Smith is not the same player he used to be, but that same chip on his shoulder is still there. We'll see what he can do with his new team as Smith is likely to start on the outside opposite Torrey Smith. His current ADP is WR55 (12.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Ravens | Steve Smith expected to be used underneath (Thu Jul 17, 05:05 PM) - Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith is expected to run mostly underneath routes this upcoming season from the outside receiver and slot positions, because WR Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones are expected to be the big-play threats.

Our View: Smith is nowhere near the player he used to be. He still has a chip on his shoulder, but Smith lacks the ability to get downfield or create separation like he used to. Smith will work underneath routes, and he has limited fantasy value at this point in his career. His current ADP is WR55 (12.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
