Fantasy studs and duds

Baltimore wide receiver Torrey Smith had a nice game--despite hauling in just two passes, both went for touchdowns. He finished with 67 yards, tied for the most on the team.
Oakland wide receivers Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey put together nice statlines in the loss as well. Moore had 90 yards and a touchdown, while Heyward-Bey was close behind with 82 yards and a touchdown of his own.
Did they cover?
The Ravens entered the game as six-point favorites and won by 35. So yes, they did cover the spread.
