Smith also led the team with 13 targets, as Joe Flacco routinely tested Joe Haden and the rest of the Browns secondary. The Ravens got the ball into Smith's hands for several short completions and drag routes, giving their dynamic receiver several chances to make plays. Smith also nearly reeled-in a touchdown catch in double coverage in the first half, but couldn't hold on and get both feet in bounds.
Fantasy Spin: Expect the trend of Smith being heavily-targeted to continue, as he is far and away the most reliable option that Flacco has. That's now back-to-back 80-yard games for Smith, and he presents a reliable WR2 option each week. His best days are ahead still, and the fact that he had a solid game versus one of the league's top corners is only encouraging for his fantasy prospects.
