After a statistically down first half of the season, Torrey Smith had one of his better games in Pittsburgh Sunday night and feels he’s taking a better mental approach to the game.
Smith hauled in a 35-yard touchdown from quarterback Joe Flacco early in the first quarter and finished with four catches for 63 yards. It was one of his best games of the year.
“It is a mental thing the way I approach the game, the way I was attentive on the field,” he said. “I was definitely locked in on that. It is a brand new half of the season for me personally and I’m looking forward to making the plays that we need to get it done. And I have to do a lot more.”
Smith has four touchdowns in his last four games. He’s caught 11 passes for 195 yards during that span, which included being shut out in Cincinnati.
Through the first five weeks of the season, Smith was the #62 WR in fantasy football. Over the past four games, he is the #15 WR, gaining 195 yards and catching four touchdowns. That even includes a goose egg against a tough Cincinnati secondary.
