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.

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 05:24:48 -0700
