Chiefs | Complete trade for Alex Smith

The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly completed a trade with the San Francisco 49ers for QB Alex Smith, although the deal will not be official until March 12. The compensation is unclear at this point; however, the Chiefs have made a clear commitment to Smith.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs were going to upgrade the quarterback position somehow this offseason, and they have done so through the acquisition of the veteran Smith, as opposed to a prospect via the NFL Draft. Last season, quarterbacks Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn combined to throw just eight touchdowns, in addition to 20 interceptions, for the Chiefs. Smith should not only provide some needed stability to the position, but he could thrive in new head coach Andy Reid's West Coast offense. Smith's mobility and accuracy should be real assets in a scheme based on timing and short passes.
