Chiefs | Alex Smith throwing well on deep balls

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 14:43:00 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has thrown 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions on passes that are at least 20 yards past the line of scrimmage. He had thrown 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions on such passes in the previous six years combined.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is easily having the best passing season of his career. He has shed his reputation as being shy on throwing deep passes, thanks in large part to speed demon and deep threat Tyreek Hill. Smith remains a starting fantasy quarterback for the last few weeks of the season.

Chiefs | Alex Smith underperforming at home

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 11:30:08 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has averaged 238.2 yards and thrown just five touchdowns in five home games this season compared to 292.6 yards and 18 touchdowns in seven road games.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for those in the playoffs who own Smith, the Chiefs play at home this week against the Oakland Raiders. That's not to say that Smith is an automatic no go, but the numbers are incredibly swayed. It is an OK matchup and after last week Smith is a low-end QB1 candidate.

Chiefs | Alex Smith has monster game

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 14:16:45 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 19-for-33 for 366 yards and four touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 13. He also rushed for 70 yards on one carry during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Smith recorded his fourth 300-yard game of the season and tied his season-high with four touchdowns. He has a chance to have some success against the Oakland Raiders in Week 14 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.

Chiefs | Alex Smith gets vote of confidence

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 10:33:17 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid reaffirmed QB Alex Smith will remain his starter for the foreseeable future on Monday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: While Smith's unwillingness to anticipate throws is causing some of the problem, Reid's creativity seems to have gone out the window too. Defenses are playing much more zone against the Chiefs and the offensive line isn't holding up nearly as well, which is causing Smith to revert to some of his old habit of leaving the pocket sooner than he should. A switch to rookie Patrick Mahomes in the near future is unlikely but much more of a possibility than anyone could have imagined last month.

Chiefs | Alex Smith throws TD, INT

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 14:39:49 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 23-for-36 for 199 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12. He also rushed for 35 yards on five carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has played well at times this season but does have four interceptions over the last three games. He will be facing the New York Jets next week, but owners should be able to find better options for their starting lineups.

Chiefs | Alex Smith unlikely to be benched

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 07:30:30 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith is not expected to be benched this season even though the team has struggled over the last several weeks, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs have lost four of their last five games, but Smith has thrown seven touchdowns and three interceptions during that span. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues that could start against favorable matchups.

Chiefs | Alex Smith throws two INTs

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 14:10:26 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 27-for-40 for 230 yards and two interceptions against the New York Giants in Week 11. He also rushed for 27 yards on five carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Smith failed to throw a touchdown in a game for the first time this season even though it was expected to be a favorable matchup. He has also thrown three interceptions in the last two games. He will face the Buffalo Bills in Week 12 and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Chiefs | Alex Smith takes ownership of record

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 20:36:52 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith broke retired QB Bernie Kosar's NFL record for consecutive pass attempts to start a season without throwing an interception, making it to 287 passes before throwing his first one in the team's Week 9 game Sunday, Nov. 5. He broke Kosar's record by one.

Fantasy Tip: Smith still had yet another terrific game on Sunday night despite his Chiefs dropping to 6-3 with the loss in Dallas. In fact, he's having one of the best seasons of any quarterback in the league this year, leading everyone in QB Rating (113.9) while amassing 18 touchdown passes and 2,444 yards in nine games. As a result, he's established himself as a perennial QB1.

Chiefs | Lackluster Monday night for Alex Smith

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 22:01:54 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith had a season-worst performance in the team's Week 8 win Monday, Oct. 30, versus the Denver Broncos, completing just 14 of 31 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown. He also added four rushes for 33 yards, while losing a fumble as well.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been so terrific this year that tonight's poor outing can be forgiven, especially since he was squaring off with one of the best defenses in the league. At the end of the day, he's been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL this season, though it's fair to wonder if perhaps he's coming down considerably from his peak that was the first seven weeks of the campaign.

Chiefs | Alex Smith in midst of career year

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 13:50:19 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (72.4%) is on pace to break the NFL's single-season completion percentage record, which was set last year by Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford. Smith is also on track to best several personal records, including yards, yards per attempt, touchdowns and rating.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has arguably been the biggest surprise of the 2017 season. He's been a completely different player from a production standpoint. It may not feel right, but Smith has cemented himself as an every-week QB1 option.
