Redskins | A Kirk Cousins tag and trade not realistic

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 13:30:25 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins could theoretically be franchise tagged by the Redskins, but if that were to occur then Cousins would not entertain a long-term deal with his new team and he would make a whopping $34 million under the tag. If Cousins did not immediately sign the tag, he could not be traded anyway. Furthermore, the Redskins would not be able to do much else in free agency and also just traded for Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Tagging Cousins makes no sense from Washington's perspective, especially considering the recent acquisition of Smith. Cousins will be playing in a new city in 2018 and the Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Cleveland Browns are the most realistic suitors. Cousins will be a QB1 option wherever he plays, although Minnesota is his best-case scenario on paper.

Redskins | Alex Smith subpar versus NFC East

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 12:40:20 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has played relatively poorly against the NFC East in his career. In 18 career games versus the division Smith has averaged a scanty 217.4 yards and 1.2 touchdowns. Smith will be playing eight games in the NFC East.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is coming off a career year in which he threw for over 4,000 yards and 26 touchdowns. Furthermore, his yardage has increased each season since 2014. While he's not a reliable week-to-week No. 1 fantasy quarterback, he's a high-end backup option.

Browns | Cleveland made push for Alex Smith

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 20:31:36 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith, who was - in principle - traded to the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, Jan. 30, was reportedly also a target of the Cleveland Browns, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Before Cleveland fans get irate about the team's inability to land a quarterback, it is very likely Kansas City's front office received similar offers from Washington and Cleveland and did its best to accommodate its high-character veteran quarterback by sending him to a team with the better shot of winning right away. With Smith off the market, the Browns will almost certainly select a quarterback with one of their two first-round picks in April's draft.

Redskins | Washington reportedly extends Alex Smith

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 19:23:12 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith, who was reportedly traded to the Washington Redskins late in the night Tuesday, Jan. 30, has agreed to a four-year, $94 million contract extension that will keep him with the Redskins though the end of the 2022 season. The deal will reportedly include approximately $70 million in guaranteed money. Per NFL rules, the trade cannot be officially completed until the first day of the new league year (3 p.m. on March 14).

Fantasy Tip: The extension was part of the agreement to get the trade done - Smith had only one year remaining on his old deal - and he will be under contract through his age-38 season. While the official compensation has yet to be announced, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports it will include a third-round pick and a player to be named Wednesday. Smith provides Washington with a solid option under center as it moves on from Kirk Cousins, but he figures to fall back into QB2 territory as a result of the trade.

Redskins | Washington reportedly lands Alex Smith

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 19:08:08 -0800

The Washington Redskins reportedly reached an agreement to acquire Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith on Tuesday, Jan. 30. While the compensation the Chiefs will receive has yet to be released and any trade involving Smith can't be completed until the first day of the new league year (3 p.m. on March 14), sources say the deal is in place and will proceed.

Fantasy Tip: So long, Kirk Cousins. The Redskins also reportedly signed Smith to a four-year extension, so Cousins will be on the move and Smith has some degree of stability as he enters his age-34 season in 2018. Smith won't have quite the offensive firepower he had to work with in Kansas City, so owners should be prepared to lower their expectations for him back down to pre-2017 levels, making him an unexciting QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Chiefs | Alex Smith reportedly dealt to Washington

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 18:56:09 -0800

The Kansas City Chiefs reportedly reached an agreement to trade QB Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, Jan. 30. While the compensation the Chiefs will receive has yet to be released and any trade involving Smith can't be completed until the first day of the new league year (3 p.m. on March 14), sources say the deal is in place and will proceed.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was expected to attract a second-round pick, so it's a fair bet the Redskins gave up at least that much. The trade obviously clears a path for rookie Patrick Mahomes to take over, and he will certainly enter 2018 as a wild-card for fantasy purposes. Mahomes has a huge arm and can create plays with his leges, but with only a Week 17 game under his belt this year, he is still plenty raw. He should be considered an inconsistent QB2 for fantasy purposes this summer.

Chiefs | Alex Smith not close to retiring

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 15:56:28 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has played 13 seasons in the NFL but is not close to hanging up his cleats. "I love what I do too much, I love the challenge of it, I still feel great, my body feels great," Smith said.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has quietly put up consistent numbers over the last few years, but he doesn't do enough to be considered a weekly QB1 option. While his future is unclear as of now, he will likely be in high-end QB2 territory no matter what jersey he's wearing.
