2014 Fantasy Football: 5 Highest-Scoring Baltimore Ravens WRs

With several additions in the offseason and a new offensive coordinator, fantasy football fans will have several choices for Baltimore Ravens receivers to draft in August. With a hopefully improved running game in 2014, things should really open up for Joe Flacco and his offensive weapons.

Here are my projections for the five highest-scoring Baltimore Ravens wide receivers.

It was a toss-up between Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown for the fifth spot on this list, but Jones will most likely see a decrease in receiving yards with the addition of Steve Smith and Owen Daniels. The Ravens may add another wide receiver in the draft, but until then, Brown will find himself involved in the offense. Despite a low-receiving total, Brown still hauled in seven touchdowns in 2013. His relevance will vary from week to week.

Gary Kubiak loves to have multiple tight ends in his game plans, and the fact that he has already coached tight end Owen Daniels means he will know how to get the most out of his former player from the Houston Texans. The 6-foot-3, 249-pound Daniels is a huge target for Joe Flacco, and his touchdown totals could make him a top-10 tight end in 2014.

Dennis Pitta is one of Joe Flacco's favorite targets, and he should find the end zone plenty of times in 2014. Fantasy football players were excited to see if Pitta could expand upon his 2012 campaign of 669 yards and seven touchdowns, but the tight end only played four games in 2013 due to injury. Even though Daniels will take away some targets, Pitta could become a top-five tight end in 2014.

2. Steve Smith

Steve Smith will replace the void that Anquan Boldin left for this Ravens offense, and Smith should be able to finish the 2014 season as a top-20 wide receiver. Defenses will have a hard time covering all of the Ravens' offensive weapons, and Smith can use his skills and experience to make some big plays that allow him to find the end zone often.

Torrey Smith was a top-20 wide receiver in 2013, and if he can maintain his receiving yard total and increase his touchdown production, he could end up as a top-10 receiver in 2014. He had an impressive 1,128 receiving yards last season, but he was only able to haul in four touchdown catches. If the passing attack can improve and find a rhythm, Smith can make some real noise in your 2014 fantasy football league.
