Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones were each targeted three times during Monday night's game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Torrey Smith caught two passes for 57 yards during Monday night's game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals. Joe Flacco connected with Smith on a 52-yard bomb on the game's first play from scrimmage. Jacoby Jones caught three passes for 46 yards on the night. Both wideouts were targeted three times.

Analysis: Smith added 13 yards rushing on a reverse, but overall probably didn't produce like fantasy owners hoped especially considering the big reception early. With Dennis Pitta and Anquan Boldin better suited for underneath receptions, Smith could be relegated to a deep threat-only role, making his production boom or bust on a weekly basis. As for Jones, he is the Ravens' third receiver until further notice, making him difficult to recommend in any capacity for standard leagues.
