Torrey Smith scores, but contributes little else in fantasy

David Banks

The Ravens wide receiver couldn't get much going Sunday, but did manage a touchdown. We break down the fantasy implications.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith had almost an exactly average game for him Sunday, with nine fantasy points that was close to his 9.3 season average. The performance came in the Ravens' 23-20 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears.

Smith caught five passes for 32 yards Sunday, but had a five-yard touchdown reception late in the second quarter. The game was a muddy slog, with a delay of almost two hours in the first quarter because of area weather. After the game resumed, neither team appeared eager to throw the ball much, staying with the run more. That tempered the receiving yards on both sides, with only the Bears' Alshon Jeffery topping 50, getting 83 on seven catches.

Fantasy impact: Smith has been fairly consistent this year, with seven of his 10 games finishing with between six and 10 fantasy points. With Anquan Boldin gone to the San Francisco 49ers and Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown missing various games with injuries, the Ravens have had to lean on their No. 1 receiver, but he still has only three touchdowns on the season.

Going forward, Smith is a low-end WR2 with potential to move up, but until he shows he's going to put up the big numbers, it's hard to rank him that high.
