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.

Chiefs | Alex Smith expected to remain starter

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 10:58:10 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was given a vote of confidence Monday, Jan. 16, in regards to holding onto the starting job in 2017. Head coach Andy Reid told reporters: "Do I still think we can win with Alex? Yeah, we were right there."

Fantasy Tip: With weapons like Travis Kelce, Jeremy Maclin and Tyreek Hill, a less risk-averse quarterback might be able to put up low-end QB1 numbers in Kansas City. Instead, Reid is apparently willing to live through another season of conservative offense and presumably another short playoff stay with Smith as his guy. The Chiefs would be wise to at least consider the heir apparent at the position in April's draft.

Chiefs | Alex Smith decent in losing effort

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 21:38:33 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 20 of 34 for 172 yards, with one touchdown and one interception, in an 18-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to tell whether Smith was hampered by the Steelers' solid defense or by the weather conditions, but Kansas City's offense had one passing touchdown and one rushing score. Smith has some limitations that make him no better than a QB2 in most drafts entering 2017, but it could be much worse for the Chiefs.

Chiefs | Alex Smith stuck in neutral

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 19:56:57 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 15 of his 28 pass attempts for 163 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in the Week 15 game against the Tennessee Titans. He did run four times for 11 yards and a touchdown to somewhat salvage his stat line.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has seven straight games with one or no passing touchdowns and he hasn't had a 300-yard passing game since Week 1. Needless to say he is more of a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues for the remainder of the season.

Chiefs | Alex Smith has solid performance

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:06:14 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 21-for-25 for 270 yards and one touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been a bit inconsistent in terms of his passing yards this season but has thrown a touchdown in each of the last three games. He probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues but should not be a starting option for owners.

Chiefs | Alex Smith has full practice

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 15:47:28 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (chest) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Smith's aptitude for not turning the ball over and his running ability, he's not a good fantasy quarterback. He's extremely tentative at times and rarely throws the ball deep. That being said, he's an under-the-radar play this week in a good matchup versus the Atlanta Falcons. The Chiefs may be forced to throw a lot in order to keep up with Atlanta.

Chiefs | Alex Smith accounts for two TDs

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 19:18:48 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 24 of his 31 pass attempts for 261 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also rushed twice for 10 yards and a score.

Fantasy Tip: Smith remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats, and that's especially the case in Week 12 in a difficult matchup on the road against the suffocating pass defense of the Denver Broncos.
