Chiefs | Alex Smith has full practice

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 15:47:28 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (chest) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Smith's aptitude for not turning the ball over and his running ability, he's not a good fantasy quarterback. He's extremely tentative at times and rarely throws the ball deep. That being said, he's an under-the-radar play this week in a good matchup versus the Atlanta Falcons. The Chiefs may be forced to throw a lot in order to keep up with Atlanta.

Chiefs | Alex Smith accounts for two TDs

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 19:18:48 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 24 of his 31 pass attempts for 261 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also rushed twice for 10 yards and a score.

Fantasy Tip: Smith remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats, and that's especially the case in Week 12 in a difficult matchup on the road against the suffocating pass defense of the Denver Broncos.

Chiefs | Alex Smith struggles in return

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 13:42:39 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith threw for 178 yards and an interception on 25-for-38 passing. Smith missed Week 9 with a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has posted exactly one good fantasy game in 2016, which was the season opener. He should remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Chiefs | Alex Smith ready for Week 10

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 14:02:46 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) practiced in full for a third straight day Friday, Nov. 11, and he is expected to start in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Smith faces a Panthers pass defense which ranks 29th in the NFL, allowing 286.0 yards per game with 17 touchdowns and 26 pass plays of 20 or more yards. He is a solid streaming option if you need a bye-week replacement in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Chiefs | KC could let Alex Smith go?

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 04:37:13 -0800

The Kansas City Chiefs are considering moving on from QB Alex Smith following the season and plan to use the final seven games to evaluate his talent level.

Fantasy Tip: No one's saying it would be a huge mistake to cut Smith yet, but Kansas City has at least made the playoffs behind Smith's decent numbers and the Chiefs are on track to do well all season. This could be a ploy to lure Kirk Cousins to Kansas City should he leave the Washington Redskins in free agency. Stay tuned.

Chiefs | Alex Smith a full go

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 17:18:35 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs aren't exactly a pass-happy team, but Smith has some DFS appeal in Week 10 against a Carolina secondary that has been routinely torched this season.

Chiefs | Alex Smith has full practice

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 15:21:56 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is somewhat of a sneaky play in his return against the Carolina Panthers this week. Carolina has been stingy versus the run, but their pass defense is far worse than last year's. If nothing else, Smith is a cheap sleeper option in daily contests.

Chiefs | Alex Smith on track for Week 10 return

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 10:50:49 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (concussion) will return to the starting lineup in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Nick Foles reportedly could have put some heat on Smith with a good performance in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he didn't exactly impress in that spot. Carolina's front seven is stout, while the back end is a bit green, so Smith should be able to put up quality QB2 numbers this week for owners looking for a bye-week quarterback to replace the likes of Matthew Stafford, Andrew Luck or Derek Carr.

Chiefs | Alex Smith likely to play next week

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 07:55:09 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ear, head) is expected to return to action for Week 10's game against the Carolina Panthers, according to a team official. He has already been ruled out for Week 9's game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars as a precautionary measure.

Fantasy Tip: Nick Foles will receive the starting nod against the Jags this afternoon and was impressive in relief versus the Colts in Week 8, going 16-for-22 for 222 yards and two touchdowns. If you're in desperate need of a bye week replacement at quarterback, he's a serviceable option, although most fantasy owners should be able to do better.
