Fantasy impact: Smith has had a bit of an up-and-down year in his first season as the Ravens number one receiving option. Part of that can be attributed to the sometimes spotty play of quarterback Joe Flacco. Nonetheless, Smith typically draws the opponent's best cornerback, which in a game against the Browns, means lining up against Pro Bowler Joe Haden.
The bulk of Smith's yards came on a 46-yard play and he was relatively quiet otherwise. He was targeted seven times in the game, which was second only to teammate Marlon Brown, who scored both of the team's touchdowns.
Going into Week 10, Smith and the Ravens face off against a Cincinnati Bengals defense that only ranks in the middle of the pack when it comes to giving up fantasy points to wide receivers. Smith should be started by fantasy owners in that game no doubt. He's not considered an elite fantasy receiver, but he's too good not score again soon.
