Chiefs | Alex Smith making smooth transition

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith said new head coach Andy Reid has been "very hands-on" regarding the quarterbacks and the offense, which incorporates some of the same terminology that Smith used under the direction of San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman for the past two seasons. He seems happy to have a new beginning. "To see them make the move and trade and get me, and it's what I wanted to happen -- very exciting. Now, it's my turn to go make the most of it."

Fantasy Tip: The story also points out that being sort of the unquestioned starter entering camp is something new for Smith, who says, basically, that it's nice to feel wanted. Given the weapons at his disposal and the productivity that Reid's system can generate, Smith may very well be a decent backup fantasy QB in 2013.
