This Sunday against the Bengals Torrey Smith failed to make any catches, He was held to no receptions on two targets. He left the game at one point due to a concussion concern, but ultimately returned.
Fantasy Impact: Struggling against the Bengals is something Torrey Smith is used to in his career, but it has been far worse this year than at any other point. He is in fact on pace for the worst statistical output of his career in terms of yardage and receptions.

This past week Torrey Smith had 3 receptions on 5 targets for 81 yards and a TD.
Fantasy Impact: This game marked the first time all season that Torrey Smith had more than 60 yards receiving. Next week the Ravens play the Cincinnati Bengals, who Smith has struggled with throughout his career. But given the Bengals' recent woeful defensive performances, he may be poised for a solid day.

Torrey Smith had 3 catches for 81 yards and a touchdown against a porous Atlanta secondary on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Smith salvaged his fantasy day with a jaw-dropping over the shoulder 39 yard touchdown from Joe Flacco in the fourth quarter on Sunday. It seems the Ravens are interested in revitalizing Smith, but he's nothing more than a lottery ticket at this point.

On Sunday against the Colts Torrey Smith had 3 catches for 38 yards. This low yardage total puts Smith's stat line at a paltry 11-176-1.
Fantasy Impact: Although Torrey Smith was tied for the team lead in targets he failed to make the most of the opportunities. His two drops(including one on a 4th-and-3) are adding to the frustration.
His ability to draw pass interference penalties do help his team, but not fantasy owners.

For Torrey Smith, last Sunday's stat sheet against the Browns read 2 catches on 8 targets for 25 yards. This puts T. Smith at 6 receptions for 85 yards on the season.
Fantasy Impact: Although early, it appears Torrey Smith isn't making the most of his opportunities with the ball. His 8 targets were 1 more than Steve Smith, who still ended up with 101 yards. Regarding the injury to TE Dennis Pitta, wait for the situation to develop before starting Torrey Smith. Owen Daniels(Pitta's backup) is a proven commodity in the Gary Kubiak style of offense and this may not allow for as many extra opportunities for Torrey Smith as owners would like.

Smith had a tough time Sunday getting open against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was only targeted 7 times out of QB Joe Flacco's whopping 62 attempts. Smith also had 2 drops to go with his 3 receptions. (Source: BaltimoreRavens.com
Fantasy Impact: The addition of Steve Smith Jr. and return of Dennis Pitta may appear to hinder Torrey Smith's fantasy ability (they went for 30 targets combined), but look for defenses to guard Steve Smith and Dennis Pitta more closely after Week 1. Torrey Smith is still the Raven's biggest deep threat and should be kept on rosters for a bit longer.

Despite heading into the final year of his rookie contract, Torrey Smith and the Ravens have yet to carve out a new deal, and sources say they're not close. (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: Smith's targets and yards have increased every season thus far in his young career. If he can boost his touchdown number this season, he could be a value pick at his current ADP of 67.

Ravens receiver Torrey Smith agrees with that sentiment, with a caveat. During the third quarter of Sunday’s game at Cincinnati, Smith ran a slant route from the “X”…
