Torrey Smith sat out Ravens' practice Tuesday with a sprained ankle. We break down the fantasy implications.

Torrey Smith was absent from the media portion of Baltimore Ravens practice Tuesday, according to the Baltimore Sun. Smith has been bothered by a sprained ankle suffered during Baltimore's preseason opener against the Atlanta Falcons last Thursday.

Anaylsis: Smith gave the Ravens' passing game a shot of energy as a rookie last season. He proved to be a solid, if a bit raw, big-play threat in a veteran receiving corps that was desperate for some athleticism. He still has to contend for attention with Anquan Boldin, and he isn't going to see many red zone opportunities with two capable tight ends also in the picture. He will be more comfortable in the offense with a full season under his belt, however, making him a solid WR2 in standard leagues.

As for the injury, there is no indication that it is anything truly serious. Check back to see if the coaches tip their hand at all, but with a long way to go until the start of the regular season Smith appears to be a safe draft pick.
