Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith was nearly held off of the stat sheet entirely during Sunday's victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Failing to get the ball into Smith's hands isn't usually part of a winning formula, but the Ravens came out on top despite Smith logging just one catch for 11 yards. Snowy weather made it difficult for quarterback Joe Flacco to hook up with his speedy receiver on deep routes, which spectators of Ravens games have been accustomed to seeing over the course of Smith's career.
Fantasy Spin: Tallying just three standard fantasy points versus a susceptible Vikings secondary has to leave a bad taste in the mouths of Smith's owners. But assuming there is a next week for those owners to compete in, the Ravens' deep threat has a plus matchup in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions.
Entering Week 14, the Lions had allowed 7.7 yards per attempt and 21 passing touchdowns on the season, giving Smith's owners plenty of upside to work with. Despite his recent clunker, Smith is a solid WR2 going forward.
