Chiefs | Alex Smith needs receivers?

Wed, 28 Jan 2015 13:50:01 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith needs more weapons around him, according to impending free-agent LB Justin Houston. He believes the Chiefs can win a championship with Smith. "For the past two years we had winning seasons. This year, I feel like our offensive line struggled a little bit, we had some injuries that caused him to get sacked more than usual. But I think we can do it," Houston noted Tuesday, Jan. 27.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs were the first team since 1950 to go an entire season without a wide receiver having a touchdown reception. TE Travis Kelce was the focal point of the passing attack late in the season and should be a midrange starting tight end in fantasy drafts in 2015.

Chiefs | Alex Smith unattractive to WRs?

Mon, 05 Jan 2015 16:04:25 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has earned a reputation for throwing the shorter routes, which means receivers often don't pile up big statistics when they play with him. That could have an effect on free-agent wideouts deciding to sign with the Chiefs over other teams.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a secret that Smith's fantasy value is limited because of his preference for check-down routes and his lack of a strong arm. Any receiver that is taking passes from him next season should be downgraded a bit as a result.

Chiefs | Alex Smith won't need surgery

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:32:59 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (spleen) will heal on his own and isn't expected to need surgery for a lacerated spleen. Trainer Rick Burkholder said Smith's recovery time should be around six weeks. Smith could return if the team advances deep into the playoffs. "From a long-term standpoint and from a health standpoint from Alex, he's going to be fine. That's going to heal up," Burkholder said. Smith wasn't diagnosed with a lacerated spleen until midway through this week after he put in a few practices.

Fantasy Tip: Chase Daniel is set to start against the San Diego Chargers in Week 17 in a very important game for both teams. We would not suggest risking a selection of Daniel for your FantasyScore lineups because of his lack of experience and limited practice time this week.

Chiefs | Alex Smith out for Week 17

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 09:12:58 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (spleen) will not play in the team's Week 17 game after suffering a lacerated spleen.

Fantasy Tip: Chase Daniel will get the start in Week 17, but should not be considered in FantasyScore contests. There are likely much better options available to you this week.

Chiefs | Alex Smith not throwing long passes

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 16:03:47 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith's average pass has only traveled 5.6 yards past the line of scrimmage this season, which is the shortest distance among quarterbacks in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has not had to throw a lot this season since the team has a terrific running game, but he has been able to post solid numbers. Smith only costs $3,900 on FantasyScore but may not be a great option since he will be facing the Seattle Seahawks.

Chiefs | Probable status for Alex Smith

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 13:51:08 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (shoulder) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($4,000; 8.0% of cap) faces one of the weaker secondary units in the league this weekend in the Jets. Smith remains a finer, low-cost option at quarterback, and it's hard to go wrong with him this week at FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Alex Smith a full go in practice

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 14:26:18 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (shoulder) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's injury is nothing serious, so expect him to start against the New York Jets. At a FantasyScore price of just $4,000 (8.0% of cap), Smith is a very attractive, low-priced QB option against a weak Jets secondary.
