Chiefs | Alex Smith throws two INTs

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 14:10:26 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 27-for-40 for 230 yards and two interceptions against the New York Giants in Week 11. He also rushed for 27 yards on five carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Smith failed to throw a touchdown in a game for the first time this season even though it was expected to be a favorable matchup. He has also thrown three interceptions in the last two games. He will face the Buffalo Bills in Week 12 and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Chiefs | Alex Smith takes ownership of record

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 20:36:52 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith broke retired QB Bernie Kosar's NFL record for consecutive pass attempts to start a season without throwing an interception, making it to 287 passes before throwing his first one in the team's Week 9 game Sunday, Nov. 5. He broke Kosar's record by one.

Fantasy Tip: Smith still had yet another terrific game on Sunday night despite his Chiefs dropping to 6-3 with the loss in Dallas. In fact, he's having one of the best seasons of any quarterback in the league this year, leading everyone in QB Rating (113.9) while amassing 18 touchdown passes and 2,444 yards in nine games. As a result, he's established himself as a perennial QB1.

Chiefs | Lackluster Monday night for Alex Smith

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 22:01:54 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith had a season-worst performance in the team's Week 8 win Monday, Oct. 30, versus the Denver Broncos, completing just 14 of 31 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown. He also added four rushes for 33 yards, while losing a fumble as well.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been so terrific this year that tonight's poor outing can be forgiven, especially since he was squaring off with one of the best defenses in the league. At the end of the day, he's been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL this season, though it's fair to wonder if perhaps he's coming down considerably from his peak that was the first seven weeks of the campaign.

Chiefs | Alex Smith in midst of career year

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 13:50:19 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (72.4%) is on pace to break the NFL's single-season completion percentage record, which was set last year by Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford. Smith is also on track to best several personal records, including yards, yards per attempt, touchdowns and rating.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has arguably been the biggest surprise of the 2017 season. He's been a completely different player from a production standpoint. It may not feel right, but Smith has cemented himself as an every-week QB1 option.

Chiefs | Alex Smith lights up Raiders

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 21:47:58 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 25-for-36 for 342 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions during the team's Week 7 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: After scuffling a bit against the Steelers, Smith bounced back by topping the 300-yard passing mark for the third time this season -- for comparison, he surpassed that number just once all of last year. Smith also passed for multiple scores for the fourth time and has yet to throw an interception this season. The veteran continues to play the best ball of his career and is a must start for fantasy owners.

Chiefs | Alex Smith toys with the Raiders

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 20:30:39 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has completed 63 percent of his passes and boasts a 19:4 touchdown-to-interception ratio in 10 career games against the Oakland Raiders. Since joining the Chiefs, Smith has played in 67 games; in seven of them he finished with better than a 9.89 yards per attempt average, four of which have come versus Oakland.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been throwing downfield more often and with more success than ever in 2017. The Raiders really haven't made too many strides when it comes to stopping quarterbacks from last year, so start Smith with confidence for Thursday Night Football this week.

Chiefs | Alex Smith throws for 246 yards, TD

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 18:59:03 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 19 of his 34 pass attempts for 246 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions while running four times for 13 yards in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers seem to be the kryptonite for Smith and the Chiefs. It wasn't a terrible game for Smith, but nowhere near some of the stat lines he has posted earlier in the season. He and his teammates do not have much time to mope, as they'll be back in action Thursday on the road against the Raiders.

Chiefs | Alex Smith out to historic start

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 20:59:18 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith tied the NFL record for most touchdown passes (11) without throwing an interception in the first five games to begin a season in the Super Bowl era.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has really been something, vaulting himself to legitimate QB1 status on a weekly basis. The Chiefs' offense has surprisingly been a juggernaut this year, leading the NFL in points scored with 164, and Smith has obviously been a huge reason for that. If owners have another QB1 option on their roster, though, it would actually be a smart idea to try and trade Smith at his peak to a quarterback-needy team.

Fri, 06 Oct 2017 15:20:11 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Smith travels to Houston and has an acceptable matchup for owners in need of a starting option due to bye weeks.
