NEWS: Dennis Pitta (hip) out for the year; Owen Daniels a sleeper TE pick-up?

SMITTY: Owen Daniels is kind of a sneaky TE to grab, as he could dance around low-end fantasy TE1 value given the situation. Looking for Week 4 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Owen Daniels pulls in 2TDs in Week 2; Bernard Pierce and LeVeon Bell play solid.

In Thursday night’s Week 2 contest between the Ravens and the Steelers, TE Owen Daniels pulled in 5 passes for 28 yards and 2TDs, WR Steve Smith pulled in 6 passes for 71 yards and Dennis Pitta pulled in 3 passes for 30 yards. Bernard Pierce ran 22 times for 56 yards, while Justin Forset ran the ball 8 times for 56 yards (and added 4 receptions for 16 yards). On the Steelers side of the football, Le’Veon Bell ran the ball 11 times for 59 yards and pulled in 5 passes for 48 yards; Antonio Brown pulled in 7 balls for 90 yards despite leaving for almost a quarter with a head injury.

SMITTY: The important takeaways from this game are: First, Le’Veon Bell looks fantastic. He is speedy, shifty, he doesn’t look like the same rusher that we saw last year… he could be in for a big 2014. Second, Steve Smith isn’t done yet and is in a unique situation to produce for one more season. Will he be a fantasy WR2? I’d say probably not, but he has solid fantasy WR3 upside this year, he really does. Be sure to sign-up for our Smart Alerts, especially to keep tabs on players like Antonio Brown (head), who left this game for a bit to go through some concussion protocols. He appears fine, but our Smart Alerts are where it’s at to get all kinds of updates all week long!
