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.

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 06:30:06 -0700

Houston Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney was not fined by the National Football League for his roughing-the-passer penalty on Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith during Week 5's game.

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

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is no longer on the injury report for Week 5.

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

Chiefs | Alex Smith takes part in practice

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 16:20:29 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been playing well during the early part of the season and has accounted for nine total touchdowns in four games. Owners that have their starting quarterback on a bye week could consider Smith as a one-week starting option for their fantasy team.

Chiefs | Alex Smith fully practices

Wed, 04 Oct 2017 14:57:22 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Smith should be able to play against the Houston Texans this week and has thrown eight touchdowns and zero interceptions in four games this season. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues but owners in most leagues may have better options to use in their starting lineups.

Chiefs | Alex Smith stuffs the stat sheet on MNF

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 21:58:29 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 27 of 37 passes for 293 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 4 win Monday, Oct. 2, against the Washington Redskins. He also ran seven times for 56 yards and a rushing touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Wow, about a quarter of the way into the 2017 season and Smith has been as superb as any quarterback in the league. The former No. 1 overall draft pick has looked remarkably consistent thus far, having completed more than 73 percent of his passes in each of Kansas City's four games, while having accounted for nine touchdowns and zero turnovers. There's no question he's a QB1 right now, but odds are he's peaked and his production figures to go down a bit sooner than later.

Chiefs | Alex Smith tosses pair of touchdowns

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:33:49 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 16 of his 21 pass attempts for 155 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 road game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Smith didn't throw the ball down the field much, and frankly he didn't have time. He was sacked five times. But Smith was aided again by the running of rookie Kareem Hunt, and Smith did just enough to not make mistakes and lead his team to another win. He isn't a huge fantasy asset, but he isn't a bad No. 2 option in most leagues heading into Week 4 against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.

Chiefs | Alex Smith gets big Week 2 win

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 14:21:48 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was 21-for-28 for 251 yards and scored one touchdown in a 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: The one touchdown happened to be a go-ahead score to Travis Kelce. Smith only missed on seven of his passes, so with an approximate hit rate of 75 percent that constitutes a good day. And the Chiefs are 2-0, which is even bigger. Smith's first two starts help him maintain status as a QB1 option.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce backs Alex Smith

Sat, 09 Sep 2017 19:37:09 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce endorsed QB Alex Smith as the starting quarterback. "He's my quarterback," Kelce said. "I'll take him every single day of the week, no matter what."

Fantasy Tip: Smith had a monster game against the Patriots in Week 1, but fantasy owners shouldn't overreact. He is still more of a game manager than a playmaker, and he remains a QB2.

Chiefs | Alex Smith lights up the Pats

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 21:18:43 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 28 of 35 passes for 368 yards and four touchdowns against the New England Patriots on Thursday, Sept. 7. It was Smith's first 300-plus-yard passing game since Week 1 of 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Not only was Smith efficient, he had two completions of more than 70 yards -- a rarity in Kansas City's usually conservative attack. While it's unwise to overreact to a single performance, there's no question the Chiefs' offense looked more dynamic than it has in years with Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Kareem Hunt looking like playmakers. If Smith went undrafted, he'd be worth bringing on board as your No. 2 passer.

Chiefs | No quarterback controversy in KC

Sat, 02 Sep 2017 16:54:23 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith is in no danger of losing his job despite an impressive preseason from rookie Patrick Mahomes, according to general manager Brett Veach. "There is no gray area. Alex is so far advanced from the mental side of things in regard to his ability to read coverages, to shift us out of plays and really play the chess game. He's so far ahead of where Pat is. I don't think it's even close right now," Veach said.

Fantasy Tip: Mahomes showed the kind of physical skill in the preseason that made him such a sought-after prospect this spring and gives the Chiefs plenty of hope for the future, but he is still a raw prospect in a complicated offense. His future is bright, but Kansas City needs to hope it doesn't find out how bright until at least 2018.

Chiefs | Rough outing for Alex Smith

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 21:05:59 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Alex Smith completed seven of his 17 passes for 44 yards in a 26-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the preseason Friday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Smith isn't known for big stat lines, but this was ugly even by his standards. His complete lack of upside limits him to low-end QB2 status.

Chiefs | Alex Smith the guy

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 08:42:06 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith is the team's unquestioned starting quarterback, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Patrick Mahomes has been turning heads in camp, but Smith doesn't appear on the hot seat. What's not hot, however, is his fantasy stock. He's a mediocre QB2 in fantasy.

Chiefs | Alex Smith has solid outing

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 13:28:06 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 8-for-9 for 83 yards and one touchdown in the preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been a consistent player since has signed with the Chiefs and threw for a career-high 3,502 yards in 2016. He recorded 20 total touchdowns last season but probably should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Chiefs | Alex Smith to play first half

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 17:38:03 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith will play the first half of the team's preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals Saturday, Aug. 19, according to head coach Andy Reid. QB Patrick Mahomes will play the third quarter, while QB Tyler Bray will play the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Smith recorded 3,502 yards and 20 total touchdowns in 2016 and probably will post similar numbers this season. He probably should be considered a low-end No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Chiefs | Tyreek Hill, Alex Smith sporting rapport

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 10:18:33 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith and WR Tyreek Hill has been a "great" connection all camp long, according to Chiefs.com's B.J. Kissel.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs forced themselves to make Hill their top receiver after releasing Jeremy Maclin this offseason, so it is a good thing Hill appears to be making the necessary strides in camp. Whether or not he can handle the No. 1 duties during camp or merely ends up being a complement to Travis Kelce is a matter of some debate, but news like this suggests the former is more than possible. He should be considered a WR2 with strong upside in fantasy.

Chiefs | Alex Smith already locked in

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 20:01:52 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has "started back faster" in OTAs than ever before, according to assistant head coach Brad Childress.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Smith is off to the best start of his life in OTAs, it doesn't change his value to fantasy owners. He is a low-upside QB2.

Chiefs | Alex Smith talks Jeremy Maclin

Sat, 03 Jun 2017 18:40:33 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith said he was expecting free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) to be his No. 1 receiver again this season and was "shocked" by Maclin's release. "For us, we have to move on a roll as a group," Smith said. "We obviously wish Jeremy well wherever he lands, and he'll land on his feet."

Fantasy Tip: Smith is a game manager for the Kansas City offense, and losing Maclin doesn't change his value. He remains strictly a fantasy backup.

Chiefs | Alex Smith to remain starter

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 22:19:17 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith will remain the team's starter, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: There was a 100 percent guarantee Reid was going to say this, and he certainly means it... for now. Reid says rookie Patrick Mahomes will "come in and learn," but it's hard not to feel a nagging sense of deja vu to a time when a young quarterback named Colin Kaepernick backed up a title contender led by Smith. The veteran never had much fantasy appeal due to his dink-and-dunk nature, but even as your fantasy backup it's hard to generate much enthusiasm for Smith.

Chiefs | Chiefs CEO backs Alex Smith as starter

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 20:19:37 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt reiterated what head coach Andy Reid has been saying throughout the offseason, that QB Alex Smith will continue to be the starting quarterback "going into 2017."

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs, like a handful of other clubs, have been linked to Tony Romo, but Hunt, Reid and general manager John Dorsey have all publicly stated their support of Smith over the past number of weeks. And who can blame them? Since arriving in Kansas City in 2013, the former No. 1 overall draft pick has accumulated 76 touchdown passes compared to just 28 interceptions. Furthermore, he's completed higher than 65 percent of his throws. He deserves to remain the starter.

NFL | K.C. the right fit for Deshaun Watson?

Clemson QB Deshaun Watson's "ideal" destination in the 2017 NFL Draft would be the Kansas City Chiefs, according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks. Brooks said head coach Andy Reid is a proven quarterback developer, and Watson could work behind QB Alex Smith until he is ready for a larger role.

Chiefs | GM backs Alex Smith as starter

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 10:50:26 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said QB Alex Smith will continue to be team's starting quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been the starting quarterback for the Chiefs in each of the past four season and the team has made the playoffs in three of those seasons. He has thrown for at least 3,500 yards only once during his career and has posted at least 20 touchdowns twice. Owners in fantasy leagues should consider him a low-end No. 2 quarterback next season.

Chiefs | Alex Smith expected to remain starter

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 10:58:10 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was given a vote of confidence Monday, Jan. 16, in regards to holding onto the starting job in 2017. Head coach Andy Reid told reporters: "Do I still think we can win with Alex? Yeah, we were right there."

Fantasy Tip: With weapons like Travis Kelce, Jeremy Maclin and Tyreek Hill, a less risk-averse quarterback might be able to put up low-end QB1 numbers in Kansas City. Instead, Reid is apparently willing to live through another season of conservative offense and presumably another short playoff stay with Smith as his guy. The Chiefs would be wise to at least consider the heir apparent at the position in April's draft.

Chiefs | Alex Smith decent in losing effort

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 21:38:33 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 20 of 34 for 172 yards, with one touchdown and one interception, in an 18-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to tell whether Smith was hampered by the Steelers' solid defense or by the weather conditions, but Kansas City's offense had one passing touchdown and one rushing score. Smith has some limitations that make him no better than a QB2 in most drafts entering 2017, but it could be much worse for the Chiefs.

Chiefs | Alex Smith stuck in neutral

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 19:56:57 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 15 of his 28 pass attempts for 163 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in the Week 15 game against the Tennessee Titans. He did run four times for 11 yards and a touchdown to somewhat salvage his stat line.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has seven straight games with one or no passing touchdowns and he hasn't had a 300-yard passing game since Week 1. Needless to say he is more of a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues for the remainder of the season.

Chiefs | Alex Smith has solid performance

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:06:14 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 21-for-25 for 270 yards and one touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been a bit inconsistent in terms of his passing yards this season but has thrown a touchdown in each of the last three games. He probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues but should not be a starting option for owners.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Well, Smith isn't going to be playing in Week 9 against the Jaguars, but this could be a sign he'll be ready to get back under center in Week 10. In his absence, Nick Foles will draw the start, but isn't a recommended option for just about all leagues.

Chiefs | Alex Smith to miss Week 9

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 11:10:51 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head) has been ruled out for the team's Week 9 game because of a head injury. He said he did not fail any concussion tests but decided to sit out a week after talking with head coach Andy Reid and members of the front office. He hopes to play against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Owners can check in Smith's status next week to see if he is on track to play in Week 10. Nick Foles will start for the Chiefs this week and has some success as a replacement last week. He will be facing the Jacksonville Jaguars and can be a bye week replacement in deeper leagues but should be avoided in most leagues.
