News: Smith had six receptions for 71 yards on 10 targets in Thursday's 26-6 win over the Steelers Impact: Smith led the Ravens in receiving yardage and targets for a second straight week, while teammate Torrey Smith turned in another dud, catching just one pass for 10 yards on three targets. The elder Smith has 25 targets and 13 receptions through two games, and while his stock has risen over the last two weeks, the Ravens still figure to spread the ball around. That said, Smith has thus far been Joe Flacco's go-to guy on third down, and the 35-year-old wideout is getting plenty of snaps in the red zone. Exhibiting good quickness in his routes and his famous angry running with the ball in his hands, Smith still seems to have some quality football ahead of him.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith caught seven passes for 118 yards and a touchdown on 15 targets in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Bengals. Impact: Though he hauled in an 80-yard, go-ahead touchdown on a third-and-14 in the fourth quarter, Smith was otherwise unimpressive in his Ravens debut. He dropped a pair of passes, and his other 14 targets resulted in just six catches for 38 yards. He also should have drawn a flag on the touchdown, as he threw cornerback Adam Jones to the ground via facemask. In any case, it was still an encouraging performance for the 35-year-old's fantasy owners, as the elder Smith drew 15 targets on Joe Flacco's 62 pass attempts, compared to just seven for Torrey Smith. On a less encouraging note, the Ravens subbed out their starting receivers with surprising frequency, sometimes using Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown and/or Jacoby Jones in two-wide sets. Next up for Smith is a Thursday matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.(RotoWire, )
