Ravens face red-hot Colts in Week 5
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Ravens DST unit has struggled so far this season, and things aren't likely to get any easier in Week 5 against the Colts.

The Ravens have failed to reach double figures in Fantasy points in three of four games this season, and they will be going up against arguably the league's hottest offense. The Ravens have surrendered 260 passing yards per game heading into the matchup with the Andrew Luck-led Colts, who have laid waste to opposing defenses. The most Fantasy points a DST unit has managed against the Colts was the Broncos' 9-point effort in Week 1.

The Ravens have done a good job keeping quarterbacks out of the end zone so far, but their luck is likely to run out this week. Consider better options for DST units this week.

Steve Smith rolls into tough matchup
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Ravens might have to throw the ball a lot to keep up with the Colts in Week 5, which could be a good thing for Steve Smith's Fantasy owners.

Steve has been the more productive of the Smith duo for the Ravens, as he ranks third in the league in receiving yards. He should be able to add to that total against the Colts, though they have been surprisingly stingy against opposing wide receivers this season. Even with games against the Broncos and Eagles in their wake, the Colts have allowed the third-fewest Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers, at 15.5.

Still, Smith has been reinvigorated by his new surroundings, and has been too productive to consider sitting even against what looks like it could be a tough matchup. Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg are not quite in agreement about Smith's value for Week 5, with Jamey ranking him 14 spots lower than Dave's No. 7 ranking among wide receivers. Still, they agree that Smith is worth starting in Week 5.

Look at the Ravens backfield for Week 5
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Making sense of the Ravens backfield is going to be a chore for the next few weeks, especially since we assume Bernard Pierce will return to the field at some point in Week 5 against the Colts. How should Fantasy owners view Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro heading into this weekend's matchup?

Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg are in agreement that Justin Forsett is the guy to own and start this weekend, with both ranking him among the top-21 for running backs in Week 5. Dave is higher on Taliaferro than Jamey, ranking him 24th, just behind Forsett; Jamey has him at 31.

Neither has Pierce ranked this week, as his role is a total mystery. Pierce was active but didn't see the field in Week 4, and we aren't sure how much he is expected to play Sunday. Even if you are desperate, there have to be better options on your roster with just two teams on bye.

Report: Ravens LT Eugene Monroe expected to miss a month
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Ravens left tackle Eugene Monroe, who had arthroscopic knee surgery last week, is expected to miss roughly a month, reports the Baltimore Sun. Undrafted rookie James Hurst filled in well Week 4 and should continue to start in Monroe's absence, according to the team's website.

The Ravens visit the Colts on Sunday.

Torrey Smith leads NFL in drawing interference flags
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Ravens receiver Torrey Smith has drawn five pass interference penalties, most in the NFL, notes ESPN.com. Smith also led the league in 2012 when he drew 16 such flags.

"If [pass interference] counted as points, we probably would have won by 100," Smith said of the Week 4 win over Carolina. "It happens every game, which is frustrating for me individually, but it's great that we continue to move the ball."

The interference flags Smith has drawn this year have led to 98 yards. He has eight catches for 138 yards and a touchdown.
