Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith is in doubt for week 15, as he continues to nurse a sprained knee. Early reports suggest Smith is a “long shot” to suit up against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and fantasy football league managers can start considering alternative options early in the week.
This news obviously boosts teammate Steve Smith considerably. Smith ended a scoring drought last week by finding the end-zone, but had been plagued for weeks by drops, while Torrey Smith had been catching much of quarterback Joe Flacco’s attention. With Torrey Smith likely out, Steve Smith could return to elite status for at least one week. Marlon Brown and Kamar Aiken could also see a boost in targets and production, but Smith Sr. is obviously the Ravens wideout to use against a suspect Jaguars defense in week 15.
