Since the Kansas City Chiefs improved to 8-0 on Sunday, Oct. 27, with a win over the Cleveland Browns, they triggered an escalator with the San Francisco 49ers in which the Chiefs now must give the 49ers a 2014 second-round pick as part of April's trade of QB Alex Smith. The 49ers can deal that pick for its second-round value before Tuesday's trade deadline, if so desired.

The Kansas City Chiefs have played it safe with QB Alex Smith through the first two preseason games, as he has reportedly looked downfield very little. He has yet to target WR Dwayne Bowe during the preseason.

The Kansas City Chiefs offensive line has struggled during the preseason, allowing seven sacks of QBs Alex Smith, Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray in the second exhibition game against the San Francisco 49ers. The team game-planned for the third preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, so they are expected to be more prepared for blitz packages.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers last year when they drafted WR A.J. Jenkins in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. The deal to acquire Jenkins wasn't Smith's, but the management did ask the signal caller for his input. "We talked to Alex," head coach Andy Reid said Tuesday, Aug. 20. "Alex was very positive about it."

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed seven of his 16 pass attempts for 62 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in preseason action Friday, Aug. 16, against the San Francisco 49ers, his former team.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has been a success early this preseason, and he's shown to be a leader in training camp in head coach Andy Reid's system. "He's a smart guy," Reid said of his quarterback. "He gets it. He makes it easy. He doesn't run out of gigabytes."
Fantasy Tip: Smith won't be asked to carry the team. He isn't that type of quarterback. However, if he limits his mistakes and makes smart decisions, he could be a big surprise. The upside is limited, though, and he won't put up the numbers to make him anything more than a weak QB2, most likely.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said he attempted to acquire QB Alex Smith several times when he was the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles and Smith was with the San Francisco 49ers.

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson gave QB Alex Smith high praise, calling him the best quarterback in the NFL. "Ultimately, every team has to have a quarterback," Pederson said. "I think we have the best in the league."
"There are a lot of great ones," Pederson said, "but over time, Alex has proven he can get it done. He's a sharp guy, he brings a wealth of knowledge, he's experienced, he's a proven winner the last couple of years, and he needs a team to embrace him."

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith connected with WR Dexter McCluster on a deep pass down the middle that was hauled in for a touchdown Friday, July 26, on the first play at training camp. More importantly than the big plays, head coach Andy Reid likes consistency, and Smith went several plays into practice before throwing his first incompletion. "There weren't a lot of balls on the ground, and it looked like the defense had people covered," Reid said.
Fantasy Tip: Smith is considered a Top 25 fantasy quarterback right now, and he should be treated as a low-end QB2 until he proves otherwise. His average draft position (ADP) has been around the 180th overall pick.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Ricky Stanzi is the only quarterback on the team's roster not acquired by new head coach Andy Reid and new general manager John Dorsey, and he finds himself fighting for a roster spot. QB Alex Smith is the unquestioned starter, and QB Chase Daniel is the top backup. That leaves Stanzi and QB Tyler Bray fighting for the No. 3 job. "We're splitting reps. I'm just really worried about the reps I got. It's been nice to be out here a couple of days early just to refresh with the playbook and kind of get up to speed with the guys, especially with the receivers."
