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.

BALLER MOVE: Target ~ 125 (Current ADP: 142, WR: 51) ANALYSIS: Much has been made of Steve Smith’s departure from Carolina, but most of the discussion has revolved around how the Panther’s will move forward without him. For the Ravens, the signing of Smith was essentially a delayed replacement of Anquan Boldin who was traded to San Francisco […]

Enters a supporting role in Gary Kubiak's run-first scheme.

He can still make things happen down the field but he's the #2 guy at best and working in a run first system now.

Feisty veteran is running out of gas.

Signed a 3-year $11 million dollar contract with the Ravens. He's the kind of chain mover the Ravens sorely lacked after trading away Anquan Boldin. Smith may only catch 50-60 passes in 2014, but along with a healthy Dennis Pitta, will take pressure off of Joe Flacco. Smith's fantasy value is on the wane, but he'll be in the WR3/4 conversation

Would ya look at that – another fight for Steve Smith as he and Ravens CB Chykie Brown were performing blocking drills that eventually led to swinging fist drills during an Early August practice. Smith was also involved in a June practice fight with Ravens CB Ladarius Webb. Smith is coming off a 735 receiving yard performance where he managed to catch just 3 TDs. With diminished vertical play and burst, the Vet is slated to line up as the WR2 (while being the Number 3 Receiving Option) behind Torrey Smith and Dennis Pitta. Smith is on the latter part of his career at the age of 35 and is only considered a desperate Bye Week replacement.

May not be an ideal number one wideout anymore but see resurgence as a number two in single coverage
