Torrey Smith scores fourth touchdown for fantasy owners on Thanksgiving

Patrick Smith

After a two-catch performance in Week 12, Smith bounced back for his best game since early October. We break down the fantasy implications.

Torrey Smith caught six passes for 93 yards and a touchdown on Thanksgiving against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was targeted a team-high 10 times by Joe Flacco, leading the Baltimore Ravens in receiving again.

Smith opened the game with a 54-yard reception early in the first quarter, followed by a seven-yard strike in the end zone from Flacco. The third-year receiver now has three touchdowns in his last four games.

Fantasy impact: Baltimore's passing game is on an inconsistent track again in 2013, but Smith continues to shine. He's heating up late in the season. Last week he only hauled in two passes, but he was able bounce back in prime time on the holiday.

The Ravens host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14. Most leagues will be starting the fantasy playoffs, which is perfect timing for Smith. The Vikings rank No. 29 overall in pass defense. Consider Smith bordering the WR1 range for that matchup.
