Chiefs | Alex Smith enjoying his best camp with KC

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 17:12:25 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has shown more willingness to throw downfield and improved decision-making overall, convincing his coaches he is enjoying the finest of his four training camps with the team, according to ESPN.com writer Adam Teicher.

Fantasy Tip: This feels like a believe-it-when-you-see-it report, but Smith's unwillingness to throw downfield throughout most of his career has pigeonholed him into the ultimate "game manager" quarterback. The 32-year-old has the weapons to cut it loose a bit more if he likes in Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce. As it stands now, he usually presents a pretty safe floor as an unexciting QB2 in most leagues.

Chiefs | Alex Smith sacked a lot

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 11:45:06 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was sacked 45 times in the regular season -- tied for third most among quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt might be licking his chops today, but the Texans won't have Jadeveon Clowney on the other end putting pressure on Smith. Moreover, Smith ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has played well individually over his playoff career, throwing nine touchdowns and zero interceptions over three games. Still, Houston's pass rush will be something to watch against the Chiefs today.

Chiefs | Alex Smith succeeds in playoffs

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 14:42:48 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has thrown for 291 yards per game and nine touchdowns and zero interceptions in three career playoff games.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Smith has also lost two of those three outings, but his numbers are positive. Smith and the Chiefs have a tough test in the Houston Texans, who were one of the top fantasy defenses against quarterbacks this season.

Chiefs | Alex Smith tosses two TDs in win

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 21:19:17 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 14 of his 24 pass attempts for 156 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 17 game against the Oakland Raiders. He also ran nine times for 61 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Smith led his team to 11 wins and a wild-card game date with the Houston Texans next Saturday. He will be a cheap FantasyScore option, and a good play as long as Jeremy Maclin does not have any setbacks with the hip injury he suffered Sunday.

Chiefs | Alex Smith throwing more TDs

Sat, 02 Jan 2016 19:52:32 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has eight touchdown passes over the last five games, and the Chiefs have run for just three touchdowns during the same stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) isn't going to throw for a ton of yards, but he has tossed multiple touchdowns in three of his last five games, including two against the Oakland defense he faces in Week 17. He could worth a look as a low-priced alternative at the quarterback spot at FantasyScore if you want to spend up at other positions.

Chiefs | New career high for Alex Smith

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 17:12:15 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 15 of 22 passes for 125 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and ran six times for 54 yards in a 17-13 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 16, giving him a career-best 3,330 passing yards this season.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has failed to pass for 200 yards in four straight games, and while he usually bolsters his numbers with his scrambling ability, his upside is limited compared to other quarterbacks at FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Alex Smith effective vs. BAL

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 14:58:29 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was 21 of 25 for 171 yards and one touchdown Sunday, Dec. 20, in a 34-14 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) wasn't flashy or overpowering, as the Kansas City defense did most of the damage, but you can't go wrong with throwing just four incomplete passes. Smith has been effective enough in leading Kansas City to an eight-game winning streak, and he should be a decent FantasyScore play.

Chiefs | Alex Smith has so-so afternoon

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 21:08:28 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 15 of his 23 pass attempts for 191 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 14 game against the San Diego Chargers. He also ran five times for 40 yards. His interception-free streak of 312 passes was snapped. It was the second-longest in NFL history behind New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (358).

Fantasy Tip: Smith has developed a nice rapport with Albert Wilson and Jeremy Maclin down the stretch, but he is still only worth using as an emergency QB1 or decent QB2 in fantasy formats which use two starting signal callers.

Chiefs | Alex Smith protecting the ball

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 17:00:33 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has not thrown an interception in 305 attempts, which leads the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) streak also ranks third in league history behind Tom Brady (358) and Bernie Kosar (308). He isn't the most prolific fantasy quarterback, but there's always value in not turning the ball over. The bad news is that the San Diego Chargers, Smith's opponent this week, have been better than average against the pass this year. Use caution.
