Ravens WR Torrey Smith staying positive, starting to produce

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Ravens looking to get the deep ball going

Saturday, November 1, 2014, 2:35am

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Sunday's match-up with the Steelers represents a good opportunity to get the deep-passing game on track. Pittsburgh has allowed four touchdown passes from outside the red zone in the last three games, and cornerback Cortez Allen was targeted for two long touchdowns last week against the Indianapolis Colts. Veteran cornerback Ike Taylor has already been ruled out with an arm injury.

"Sometimes, it comes in bunches," Ravens WR Torrey Smith said. "All it takes is one, and we're just waiting on that opportunity."

Fantasy Impact:

Smith's up and down season continues. He posted a goose egg in Week 8 after catching touchdowns in three of his previous four games. He isn't seeing as many targets as in years past, and his targets are typically of the low percentage/high yield variety, so he's going to be a boom or bust pick in any given week. The Steelers have had their issues defending the long ball this season, so Smith may make a big play or two in Week 9.

Ravens RB Justin Forsett (ankle, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 9. Forsett says he has a “minor” ankle injury and is fully expected to play in Week 9. Lorenzo Taliaferro appears to be the team’s RB2 at this point.

Ravens WR Michael Campanaro (thigh, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 9.

Friday, October 31, 2014, 5:43pm

Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee, questionable) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 9. Daniels returned quickly from a knee scope, which typically requires 3-4 weeks of recovery. Then he missed practice on Thursday, but the full reps on Friday are encouraging. The Ravens play on Sunday night, so Daniels probably isn’t worth playing the wait-and-see game.

Ravens RB Justin Forsett (ankle) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Forsett says he has a “minor” ankle injury and is expected to play in Week 9.
