49ers | Alex Smith draws praise

San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy praised 49ers QB Alex Smith, saying he has been everything the team expected and more. Nagy noted Smith is both a leader by example and vocal.

"He's a true professional. He's in his (playbook) every day. He's always asking questions, trying to get better. He's being a leader for the other (quarterbacks) as well. I'm with him every single day," Nagy said. "Just talking X's and O's and past experiences he's had, he brings some good things to our attention as a staff. He has a lot of valuable experience. He's been through a lot. Having those experiences and coming in here to a team with a new staff, it's been an awesome experience. Throughout this process, we're taking in what he has, he's taking in what we have, and we're putting it all together and trying to make this work."

Fantasy Tip: Smith should bring something to an offense that may ask him to pass more than ever in a single season of his career. With a little help from the supporting cast, Smith could be a weekly spot starter.
