From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 26): Smith continues to round into form coming off of his achilles injury. He is emerging as the Ravens leading receiver and should be considered a high floor PPR WR3/Flex heading into a good matchup with Oakland.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs JAX (11 / 8 / 87 / 0 rec)

Steve Smith looked more like himself against the Jaguars. Smith dropped his first target over the middle running a curl route. Flacco threw short of Smith the following play with pressure in his face. Smith made his first catch on an in route and exploded up field with room to run, gaining 23. Smith looked fast and explosive on the play and nearly hurdled a defender. Smith beat Jalen Ramsey on 3rd and short for 9 yards running a curl route outside against the rookie. Smith picked up 22 more beating the coverage on an in route. Smith picked up 15 more working over the middle, finding the hole in zone coverage, making the catch and getting up field. Flacco went to Smith when he needed a play on 4th down with the game on the line and Smith delivered with a nice catch and a first down.

2016 Week 2 vs CLE (6 / 3 / 64 / 0 rec)

Steve Smith looked more like himself after a rough outing week 1. Smith's first two targets were an interception by Joe Haden and a pass deflection again by Haden. Smith made all his catches in quick succession. Smith made his first catch on an in route beating Joe Haden for 14 yards and setting up a field goal attempt before the half. Smith opened the second half with a 19 yard gain running an out route and 31 more yards down the sideline the following play beating Joe Haden once again. I saw Smith with his hands on his hips frequently throughout the game. Either Smith was tired or frustrated with his involvement. Smith should continue to regain his form and make more plays as the season progresses.

2016 Week 1 vs BUF (8 / 5 / 19 / 0 rec)

Steve Smith led the Ravens in receptions and snaps but did little to suggest he will be a productive part of the Ravens offense. Smith made his first three catches on curl routes failing to gain any yards after making the catch. Smith simply went limp and allowed himself to be tackled. Another worrisome sign was Smith running the wrong route, Smith ran an out and up when Flacco expected an out route. The miscommunication nearly led to a pick six but the ball fell through the arms of Ronald Darby. On his final target Smith gained separation on a comeback route covered by Ronald Darby but Flacco's throw was out of reach. Smith did not look explosive and was not productive. If the trend continues expect Perriman and Aiken to eat into Smith's snaps.


Latest News

Ravens | Steve Smith leads team in receiving (Sun Sep 25, 05:42 PM) - Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith caught eight passes for 87 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3.

Our View: Smith is looking better each week, and the Ravens offense will remain pass heavy enough to keep him in PPR WR3/Flex consideration each week. He should be in consideration next week against a Raiders pass defense that was very generous until they faced the Titans today.

Ravens | Steve Smith has decent game (Sun Sep 18, 05:36 PM) - Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith caught three passes for 64 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2.

Our View: Smith had a small flurry of productivity, but wasn't one of the main targets for Joe Flacco. It's possible that he will round into form as the season goes on, and he is at least worth holding through a very good matchup against Jacksonville next week to see if his production continues to trend up.
