Coach John Harbaugh probably wants to ease of the pedal a bit but with rookie Breshad Perriman replacing Torrey Smith, it appears Smith will be heavily used in 2015.
Fantasy Impact: He's 36 and never considered retirement, so he'll be ready for a repeat of his 79 receptions and 1,065 yard 2014. Draft him and enjoy the return on investment.

In a social media post Smith wrote, "Look forward to a better season next year and watch us go WIN IT ALL." (Source: BaltimoreRavens.com
Fantasy Impact: The news is good for the Ravens and Smith, who hit it off well this year. Although Smith caught more than 50% of his 1065 yards in the first 6 games, he proved to be valuable the rest of the season. To help improve Smith's value, potential owners should look into who will be playing opposite Steve Smith Sr. next year with Torrey Smith potentially becoming an Unrestricted Free Agent.

Steve Smith Sr. came to play Saturday against the Steelers. He led the team in receiving, catching five passes for 101 yards on seven targets.
Fantasy Impact: Smith continues to add to his reputation as a big game player and he has been Joe Flacco's most consistent receiver this season. Smith will run into the tough New England pass defense next week, led by Darrelle Revis.

With only 5 catches for 37 yards on Sunday, Steve Smith passed Steve Largent to move into 15th on the all-time receiving yards list. For the season, Smith has caught 66 passes for 926 yards, averaging 14 yards per reception. Additionally, Smith has caught six touchdowns. (Source: Aaron Wilson via The Baltimore Sun
Fantasy Impact: Smith's production was low against a Jacksonville's 24th ranked pass defense. In Week 16, Smith and the Ravens visit the Houston Texans and their 26th ranked pass defense. Will the match-up looks enticing proceed with caution.

Steve Smith had a good game Sunday against the Dolphins. He caught seven passes for 70 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Impact: Smith has faded as of late after a strong start to the season. On Sunday he showed there's still a little left in the tank but keep in mind this is just his second touchdown since Week 6. Torrey Smith also didn't play so Steve's production could have been a result of additional attention from Joe Flacco. Smith is still just a weak WR3 going forward.

Against the Tennessee Titans Steve Smith made 3 receptions on 7 targets for a season low 17 yards.
Fantasy Impact: After a hot start to the season, Steve Smith's recent performances have not been the same as of late. Do take this game with a grain of salt as he was second on the team in terms of targets. Look for Smith to up his performance after the Ravens' upcoming bye week.

Steve Smith underwhelmed compared to the past few weeks putting up a 67 yard day on 3 catches vs. Atlanta. He also scuffled with the Atlanta secondary in classic fashion.
Fantasy Impact: Smith has shown us so much this year as a #1 caliber wideout that this game comes as a disappointment. Never the less, he is easily Joe Flacco's favorite weapon on the outside, and fits in nicely as a solid WR2 in all formats.

This past week against the Colts included Steve Smith's 5 receptions for 34 yards on 7 targets.
Fantasy Impact: This was Steve Smith's first bad game of the season. It marks the first time he failed to gain at least 70 yards receiving.
Until opposing teams allow Torrey Smith to beat them, believe in Steve Smith to continue his success, barring any injury.

Already the talk of camp, veteran Steve Smith was one of the Ravens that "the 49ers really struggled to deal with" in recent joint practices. He continues to get better and generate buzz from Ravens coaches and teammates. (Source: Baltimore Sun
Fantasy Impact: Despite glowing reports and a work ethic unmatched by most at his position, we simply can't elevate him higher than a WR3 option at this point. He's a late round option with WR2 upside in a new offense in Baltimore.

Steve Smith has been the talk of camp so far in Baltimore, drawing rave reviews from new OC Gary Kubiak. "The juice he has as a player right now at this stage in his career is so impressive," Kubiak said. "Steve is a confident, energizing person on the field, very competitive, ‘Give me the ball, coach’-type of guy, which is what you want. You want guys like that, and I’ve really enjoyed it."

Fantasy Impact: Steve Smith is still on the downside of his career, but don't be surprised if he puts up respectable WR2/WR3 numbers in a Baltimore offense that is sure to be pass dependent under Kubiak.
