Ron Schwane-US PRESSWIRE
Joe Haden expects to be covering Torrey Smith for most of Sunday's game, making for an intriguing matchup. We break down the fantasy implications.
Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden hasn't missed a beat since coming back from his suspension, and he could have another nice day against the Ravens in Week 9. Haden told the Akron Beacon Journal that he expects to be covering WR Torrey Smith the majority of the time, although he won't be shadowing him around the field. Smith usually plays on the outside with Anquan Boldin in the slot, so Haden expects to see Smith more.
Smith has 435 yards and four TDs on the season. Haden, meanwhile, racked up eight tackles against the Chargers last week and has two picks this year.
Fantasy Impact: Haden is looking for redemption after sitting out the earlier game with the Ravens in Week 4. He's a tough fantasy matchup for any WR, and deserves consideration when setting your lineups.
The Ravens should move Smith around more to keep him off Haden, so fantasy owners can pencil him in as a WR3, but don't be surprised or disappointed if he's held quiet.
