Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Troy Smith has been the Ravens' primary backup for the past two seasons, but the former Heisman Trophy winner isn't guaranteed that spot this season according to Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun.

Smith and John Beck will be battling all summer to become the No. 2 quarterback behind Joe Flacco.

"John and Troy know they’re competing," offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said. "They’re good friends. They’re workers. That’s the way it is. I’m looking forward to training camp."

“I think it’s a tremendous situation for both of us, having an understanding that competition is going to get us – everybody on the field – to be their best," Smith said. "John is one of my great friends, and Joe is a great friend of mine, too. We have an understanding. We know what our niche is here, and everybody is fitting in, having fun.”

Fantasy Impact: 

This news is important for GMs that participate in fantasy leagues of 12-14+. Depth is always a concern especially if you have Flacco as your #1 QB and choose to build up other positions.
