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.

Chiefs | Alex Smith already locked in

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 20:01:52 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has "started back faster" in OTAs than ever before, according to assistant head coach Brad Childress.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Smith is off to the best start of his life in OTAs, it doesn't change his value to fantasy owners. He is a low-upside QB2.

Chiefs | Alex Smith talks Jeremy Maclin

Sat, 03 Jun 2017 18:40:33 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith said he was expecting free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) to be his No. 1 receiver again this season and was "shocked" by Maclin's release. "For us, we have to move on a roll as a group," Smith said. "We obviously wish Jeremy well wherever he lands, and he'll land on his feet."

Fantasy Tip: Smith is a game manager for the Kansas City offense, and losing Maclin doesn't change his value. He remains strictly a fantasy backup.

Chiefs | Alex Smith to remain starter

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 22:19:17 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith will remain the team's starter, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: There was a 100 percent guarantee Reid was going to say this, and he certainly means it... for now. Reid says rookie Patrick Mahomes will "come in and learn," but it's hard not to feel a nagging sense of deja vu to a time when a young quarterback named Colin Kaepernick backed up a title contender led by Smith. The veteran never had much fantasy appeal due to his dink-and-dunk nature, but even as your fantasy backup it's hard to generate much enthusiasm for Smith.

Chiefs | Chiefs CEO backs Alex Smith as starter

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 20:19:37 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt reiterated what head coach Andy Reid has been saying throughout the offseason, that QB Alex Smith will continue to be the starting quarterback "going into 2017."

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs, like a handful of other clubs, have been linked to Tony Romo, but Hunt, Reid and general manager John Dorsey have all publicly stated their support of Smith over the past number of weeks. And who can blame them? Since arriving in Kansas City in 2013, the former No. 1 overall draft pick has accumulated 76 touchdown passes compared to just 28 interceptions. Furthermore, he's completed higher than 65 percent of his throws. He deserves to remain the starter.

NFL | K.C. the right fit for Deshaun Watson?

Sat, 11 Feb 2017 18:19:34 -0800

Clemson QB Deshaun Watson's "ideal" destination in the 2017 NFL Draft would be the Kansas City Chiefs, according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks. Brooks said head coach Andy Reid is a proven quarterback developer, and Watson could work behind QB Alex Smith until he is ready for a larger role.

Chiefs | GM backs Alex Smith as starter

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 10:50:26 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said QB Alex Smith will continue to be team's starting quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been the starting quarterback for the Chiefs in each of the past four season and the team has made the playoffs in three of those seasons. He has thrown for at least 3,500 yards only once during his career and has posted at least 20 touchdowns twice. Owners in fantasy leagues should consider him a low-end No. 2 quarterback next season.
