Redskins | Short night for Alex Smith

Thu, 16 Aug 2018 18:53:05 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed four of his six pass attempts for 48 yards against the New York Jets in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Smith tends to be a little underappreciated in fantasy circles. He is a quality QB2, and he can deliver QB1 numbers against favorable matchups.

Redskins | Jamison Crowder making favorable impression

Sun, 24 Jun 2018 11:32:09 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder is healthy after a season in which he dealt with hamstring issues and is focusing on doing more of the dynamic lifts in college in order to avoid them this season. He has also "clearly clicked" with Alex Smith this offseason, according to ESPN.com's John Keim. "Super talented. Such great feel. Such great instincts. Such great vision," Smith said about Crowder.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's 102.8 quarterback rating when targeting slot receivers over the last five seasons trails only Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson among quarterbacks who have made at least 30 starts. It obviously bodes well for Crowder, who is entering a contract year and poised for his best season yet after averaging 64 catches over his first three seasons. He is shaping up to be a solid value pick given his current eighth-round ADP in PPR formats.

Redskins | Alex Smith, Jamison Crowder clicking

Wed, 06 Jun 2018 12:46:08 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith and WR Jamison Crowder already appear to have good chemistry. According to NBCSportsWashington's Rich Tandler, Smith looked comfortable looking Crowder's way during goal-line plays at organized team activities Wednesday, June 6.

Fantasy Tip: It will do Crowder well to have new eyes looking his way, not that Kirk Cousins didn't look his way. Crowder was a breakout candidate last offseason but expectations were not met. He's a breakout candidate once again and a legitimate low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 in PPR formats.

Chiefs | KC officially trades Alex Smith

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 14:39:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was officially traded to the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for CB Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round draft choice.

Fantasy Tip: Patrick Mahomes will take over as the starting quarterback for the Chiefs and has a chance to have success because of the pass catchers on the roster. Owners in most leagues should consider him a No. 2 quarterback, but he can be a No. 1 quarterback in keeper leagues.

Washington | Alex Smith trade to WAS official

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 14:33:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was officially acquired by the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for CB Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round draft choice.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has posted solid numbers over the last several seasons and will have a nice group of pass catchers to work with in Washington. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback against favorable matchups.

Redskins | A Kirk Cousins tag and trade not realistic

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 13:30:25 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins could theoretically be franchise tagged by the Redskins, but if that were to occur then Cousins would not entertain a long-term deal with his new team and he would make a whopping $34 million under the tag. If Cousins did not immediately sign the tag, he could not be traded anyway. Furthermore, the Redskins would not be able to do much else in free agency and also just traded for Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Tagging Cousins makes no sense from Washington's perspective, especially considering the recent acquisition of Smith. Cousins will be playing in a new city in 2018 and the Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Cleveland Browns are the most realistic suitors. Cousins will be a QB1 option wherever he plays, although Minnesota is his best-case scenario on paper.

Redskins | Alex Smith subpar versus NFC East

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 12:40:20 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has played relatively poorly against the NFC East in his career. In 18 career games versus the division Smith has averaged a scanty 217.4 yards and 1.2 touchdowns. Smith will be playing eight games in the NFC East.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is coming off a career year in which he threw for over 4,000 yards and 26 touchdowns. Furthermore, his yardage has increased each season since 2014. While he's not a reliable week-to-week No. 1 fantasy quarterback, he's a high-end backup option.
