Will The Real Torrey Smith Please Stand Up?

So the Baltimore Ravens have now played two games and Torrey Smith has a grand total of 4 catches for 60 yards. That's an average of 2 catches for 30 yards. Joe Flacco has attempted 91 passes in the first two games but Smith has only seen 10 targets. And this is a guy who was selected in the 5th round of most fantasy drafts?! Yikes.

I'm not sure if Torrey Smith has just been guarded by shut down corners or Flacco just prefers other options.

It appears Steve Smith Sr. is the Smith to own in Baltimore. In his first two games with the Ravens, Steve Smith has caught 13 balls on 25 targets for 189 yards and a touchdown.

Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels have been putting up very good numbers for tight ends as they've combined for 22 receptions for 175 yards and 2 touchdowns. Even Justin Forsett has been more active in the passing game as he's caught 9 passes for 30 yards.

It's hard to trust Torrey Smith going forward until he proves otherwise, but let's be honest he's only 25 years old and had over 1,100 yards last season.

Are you starting Torrey Smith next week? If so, why? And if not, who will you start in his place? Let us know in the comments section.
