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.

In this week's game against the Browns WR Steve Smith Jr caught 5 passes on 7 targets for 101 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Steve Smith has clearly established himself as QB Joe Flacco's favorite target. He has 31 targets through 3 games and has already had his second 100-yard receiving game of the season. Look for Steve Smith to continue being Flacco's go-to guy.

Steve Smith had 7 receptions for 118 yards and a touchdown in today's game vs. the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Smith validated the offseason hype, as his ageless frame hauled in 7 passes and made Joe Flacco look good on a long bomb in the second half for a touchdown.

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.

Smith has basically been a boom / bust WR3 the second half of the season. The Texans have allowed the third most points to fantasy receivers this year, so he does have upside in a favorable matchup.
