Fantasy start/sit advice, Week 15: Steve Smith

The Ravens’ receiver has been hit or miss all season. Can he step up in Week 15?

Baltimore Ravens‘ wide receiver Steve Smith has been a reliable option for quarterback Joe Flacco all season. Smith started the season off with a bang, contributing four touchdowns and four games over the 100-yard receiving mark in his first six games. But he couldn’t sustain the rate of production, snagging only two touchdowns in his next seven games and three games over 60 yards receiving. Both of the latter touchdowns have come in the last three weeks, so he has managed to pick it up recently. Fellow receiver Torrey Smith is dealing with a knee injury that could limit him if he does suit up, leaving Steve Smith in a great position this week.

Fantasy Impact: Smith won’t have to deal with a tough matchup this week with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Their mediocre defense gives up the 15th-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Steve Smith is in line to see plenty of targets with Torrey Smith being far from 100 percent healthy, making him a recommended WR3 play with upside.
