Torrey Smith misses practice with concussion: Fantasy implications

Patrick Smith

Torrey Smith missed practice for the Ravens on Wednesday due to a concussion suffered last week against the Broncos. We break down the fantasy implications.

Torrey Smith missed practice for the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday, according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. Smith suffered a concussion during last week's loss to the Denver Broncos, though it appeared mild at the time.

Smith will have to pass concussion protocol before returning to the field. His status for Week 16 against the New York Giants should be considered questionable. If Smith can't play, Jacoby Jones would likely see an increased role in the passing game opposite Anquan Boldin.

Fantasy Impact: Smith hasn't been productive since a 144-yard outburst in Week 12, with the Ravens' offense struggling as a whole as of late. As a result, it's hard to like Smith's fantasy prospects if he can play, much less Jones if he is forced to take on a starting role.

The matchup is a good one this week, but it's hard to trust the Ravens' passing game at the moment. Smith is a desperate flex option at best in standard formats.
