2015 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


Smith was a very good add by the Ravens in 2014. His overall skill set was much higher than WR Torrey Smith, which ended up being a plus for both players. With Torrey being the deep threat in the passing game for Baltimore, Steve was allowed to run more crossing routes. This led to his eight 1,000-yard receiving season at age 35 with 79 catches and six TDs. Flacco used him a ton early, which led to four 100-yard receiving games over the first six weeks of the year. His value faded midseason when defenses started to take him away. Over a six week span, Smith only caught 18 passes for 246 yards with one TD on 39 targets. Baltimore made an effort to get him the ball over the last month of the year (40 targets), but Steve only caught 62.5-percent of his chances for 246 yards and one TD. Over his last 11 games of the regular season, Smith only had two TDs. He caught 59 percent of his targets on the year. Just like Forsett, his success in 2014 (18th-highest scoring WR in PPR leagues) will lead to him being drafted at full value. Steve has quickness, heart and he works hard to stay in shape. Football is a young man's game and it's tough investing in a player at his age. His resume of success is long and the Ravens will get him the ball when he is on the field. I would much rather have him as a WR3 than a WR2 so he needs to be discounted before I even look at his name.
