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.

Chiefs | Alex Smith struggles in return

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 13:42:39 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith threw for 178 yards and an interception on 25-for-38 passing. Smith missed Week 9 with a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has posted exactly one good fantasy game in 2016, which was the season opener. He should remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Chiefs | Alex Smith ready for Week 10

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 14:02:46 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) practiced in full for a third straight day Friday, Nov. 11, and he is expected to start in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Smith faces a Panthers pass defense which ranks 29th in the NFL, allowing 286.0 yards per game with 17 touchdowns and 26 pass plays of 20 or more yards. He is a solid streaming option if you need a bye-week replacement in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Chiefs | KC could let Alex Smith go?

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 04:37:13 -0800

The Kansas City Chiefs are considering moving on from QB Alex Smith following the season and plan to use the final seven games to evaluate his talent level.

Fantasy Tip: No one's saying it would be a huge mistake to cut Smith yet, but Kansas City has at least made the playoffs behind Smith's decent numbers and the Chiefs are on track to do well all season. This could be a ploy to lure Kirk Cousins to Kansas City should he leave the Washington Redskins in free agency. Stay tuned.

Chiefs | Alex Smith a full go

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 17:18:35 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs aren't exactly a pass-happy team, but Smith has some DFS appeal in Week 10 against a Carolina secondary that has been routinely torched this season.

Chiefs | Alex Smith has full practice

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 15:21:56 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is somewhat of a sneaky play in his return against the Carolina Panthers this week. Carolina has been stingy versus the run, but their pass defense is far worse than last year's. If nothing else, Smith is a cheap sleeper option in daily contests.

Chiefs | Alex Smith on track for Week 10 return

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 10:50:49 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (concussion) will return to the starting lineup in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Nick Foles reportedly could have put some heat on Smith with a good performance in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he didn't exactly impress in that spot. Carolina's front seven is stout, while the back end is a bit green, so Smith should be able to put up quality QB2 numbers this week for owners looking for a bye-week quarterback to replace the likes of Matthew Stafford, Andrew Luck or Derek Carr.

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 08:40:40 -0800

Chiefs | Alex Smith likely to play next week

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 07:55:09 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ear, head) is expected to return to action for Week 10's game against the Carolina Panthers, according to a team official. He has already been ruled out for Week 9's game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars as a precautionary measure.

Fantasy Tip: Nick Foles will receive the starting nod against the Jags this afternoon and was impressive in relief versus the Colts in Week 8, going 16-for-22 for 222 yards and two touchdowns. If you're in desperate need of a bye week replacement at quarterback, he's a serviceable option, although most fantasy owners should be able to do better.

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 16:35:37 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs OG Parker Ehinger (knee), QB Alex Smith (ear, head) and CB D.J. White (hand) have been ruled out for Week 9. DE Jaye Howard (hip) is listed as questionable. Ehinger did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 4, while Smith and White were limited during practice. Howard fully participated in practice. LB Tamba Hali did not participate in practice but is not on the injury report. OG Jordan Devey (ankle), LB Derrick Johnson (hamstring) and OT Mitchell Schwartz (ankle) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Chiefs | Alex Smith limited in practice

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 20:19:37 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Well, Smith isn't going to be playing in Week 9 against the Jaguars, but this could be a sign he'll be ready to get back under center in Week 10. In his absence, Nick Foles will draw the start, but isn't a recommended option for just about all leagues.

Chiefs | Alex Smith to miss Week 9

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 11:10:51 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head) has been ruled out for the team's Week 9 game because of a head injury. He said he did not fail any concussion tests but decided to sit out a week after talking with head coach Andy Reid and members of the front office. He hopes to play against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Owners can check in Smith's status next week to see if he is on track to play in Week 10. Nick Foles will start for the Chiefs this week and has some success as a replacement last week. He will be facing the Jacksonville Jaguars and can be a bye week replacement in deeper leagues but should be avoided in most leagues.

Chiefs | KC denies Alex Smith suffered concussion

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 11:03:09 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head) reportedly did not suffer a concussion in a Week 8 win over the Indianapolis Colts, according to team trainer Rick Burkholder.

Fantasy Tip: Burkholder told reporters Monday the only reason Smith was held out was because he was put in the concussion protocol two separate times. Given how woozy the quarterback looked after the first-quarter hit that got him pulled in the first quarter and how long laid on the ground after the hit that eventually led to his exit in the second half, the Chiefs simply aren't being truthful. It is obvious, however, Kansas City is planning on starting Smith in Week 9 at the moment.

Chiefs | Nick Foles effective in QB relief

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 14:28:35 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Nick Foles was 16-for-22 for 223 yards and two touchdowns in relief of QB Alex Smith (concussion). The Chiefs beat the Indianapolis Colts, 30-14, on Sunday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Tip: If Smith is unable to go, Foles will make a capable backup. He knows the system (Foles was Andy Reid's QB with the Philadelphia Eagles) and appeared to grasp the offense right away.

Chiefs | Alex Smith suffers concussion

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 12:22:20 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (concussion) suffered a concussion during the team's Week 8 game and will not return.

Fantasy Tip: Smith briefly left earlier in the game when he was first checked for a concussion but had to leave for a second time and was officially diagnosed with a concussion. His status for Week 9 is uncertain, so owners should have other options ready to use. Nick Foles would start if Smith is sidelined but would not be a strong fantasy option.

Chiefs | Alex Smith back in the game

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 11:08:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ear) was able to return to the team's Week 8 game after missing some time because of an ear injury.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was checked for a concussion but was cleared and is back on the field. He has posted some decent numbers this season but should only be a starting option against favorable matchups.

Chiefs | Alex Smith cleared of concussion

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 10:55:52 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ear, head) has been cleared of a concussion but is considered questionable to return to the team's Week 8 game because of a cut on his ear.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Smith may have a chance to return to the Week 8 game, but the Chiefs may keep him out for the rest of the game. Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Smith will have to miss more time.

Chiefs | Alex Smith leaves game

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 09:51:03 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head) left the team's Week 8 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Smith will have a chance to return to the game. Smith has posted decent numbers but should be considered a No. 2 quarterback. Nick Foles would start if Smith misses time but should also be considered a backup quarterback for owners.

Chiefs | Alex Smith tosses pair of touchdowns

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 19:27:17 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 17 of his 24 pass attempts for 214 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 7 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also rushed four times for seven yards.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been a decent bye-week replacement and low-priced DFS option lately. He is a good streaming option in most fantasy leagues against a terrible Indianapolis secondary.

Chiefs | Alex Smith attempts career high

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 22:58:30 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith had a career-high 50 pass attempts in the Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He finished 30 for 50 with 287 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while running once for two yards.

Fantasy Tip: Smith remains a QB2 and bye-week replacement option only once the team returns from its own bye in Week 5.

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.

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 18:59:57 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill has had a "great" offseason and possesses the type of speed that worries defensive backs, QB Alex Smith said Saturday, July 30.

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.

Chiefs | Alex Smith accounts for two TDs

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 14:52:06 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 19-for-30 for 255 yards and two touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills Sunday, Nov. 29. He also rushed for 35 yards on six carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has been able to post solid numbers over the last several weeks and has gone eight games without an interception. He is also producing with his legs by rushing for at least 33 yards in the last four games. He will be facing the Oakland Raiders next week and could be a solid starting option.

Chiefs | Alex Smith quiet in victory

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 16:37:41 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 20 of his 25 pass attempts for 253 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 11 game against the San Diego Chargers, and he carried seven times for 33 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was efficient and careful, but he did not account for any touchdowns to help out fantasy owners in that department. He appeared to have a second-half touchdown strike to Travis Kelce, but it was overturned via review.

Chiefs | Alex Smith leads team to win

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 17 of his 31 pass attempts for 204 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 10 game against the Denver Broncos. He carried six times for 33 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is still best used as a QB2 in standard fantasy leagues, and he is only worth a look in FantasyScore when the matchup is tremendously favorable and his salary is low.

Chiefs | Alex Smith runs, passes to victory

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 15:43:13 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith threw for 145 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 78 yards and another score as the Chiefs won 45-10 over the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) was effective facing the Lions, but there are a lot of issues with the Lions team so you may have to take this performance with a grain of salt. He's still a decent option on FantasyScore, but he won't likely explode for a strong performance like a Drew Brees or Philip Rivers might.

Chiefs | Four Chiefs listed as probable

Fri, 30 Oct 2015 15:29:35 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin), WR Jeremy Maclin (concussion), QB Alex Smith (thumb) and RB Charcandrick West (pectoral) all practiced in full Friday, Oct. 30, and are all listed as probable for Week 8 against the Detroit Lions in London.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) becomes a sleeper candidate on FantasyScore, and Maclin ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) could be stacked with him against a Detroit secondary that likes to give up a lot of big plays to their opponents through the air. That also makes Kelce ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) a pretty safe tight end pick. West ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should see plenty of touches again in this one, and he has flex worthiness on FantasyScore.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin), WR Jeremy Maclin (concussion), QB Alex Smith (thumb) and RB Charcandrick West (pectoral) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) is the safest Chiefs player on FantasyScore this weekend. Smith ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) and Maclin ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) are a worthy stack duo in daily games against a Detroit defense that is plenty vulnerable. West ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is the primary back now for KC and has midrange flex worthiness.

Chiefs | Three KC starters have full practice

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin), QB Alex Smith (thumb) and RB Charcandrick West (pectoral) all put in full practices Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has another good matchup and continues to be one of the safer tight end picks on FantasyScore. Smith ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is a sleeper this weekend in London against a beatable secondary. West ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has clearly separated himself as the lead back with Jamaal Charles out for the year, and he's not a bad flex option in PPR setups like FantasyScore.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith threw for 251 yards and a touchdown in his team's 23-13 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Oct. 25.

Chiefs | Alex Smith should be in uniform

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is listed as probable for the Week 7 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) injury should not affect his play during the game, so he should see his normal workload. Smith probably is not the best option for owners since he has thrown only six touchdowns in six games this season.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (thumb) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is on track to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7. He has thrown for at least 282 yards in three of his last four games but has only six touchdown passes on the season. Smith could be an option if owners on FantasyScore are looking to save money, but they should be able to find better options to use.

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 16:04:38 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (face) and QB Alex Smith (thumb) both practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: With no more Jamaal Charles and with Jeremy Maclin (concussion) iffy for this weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Smith ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) loses most of his sleeper allure. Kelce ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) will really be worth the price if Maclin sits out as Smith's safety blanket in the passing game.

Chiefs | Alex Smith has strong second half

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 21:19:15 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith and the team's offense did little in the first half of the Week 3 game against the Green Bay Packers Monday, Sept. 28. However, he ended completing 24 of his 40 pass attempts for 290 yards, a touchdown and one interception while also running six times for 33 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) is a player worth watching in FantasyScore in the coming weeks, especially when the byes start to hit. The most important thing to come out of this game was the rapport he started to build with Jeremy Maclin ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) in the second half.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 16 of 25 passes for 191 yards and two interceptions in a 31-24 loss to the Denver Broncos Thursday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: The turnovers for out of character for Smith ($6,300, 12.6% of cap), but even on one of his good days, you can probably find a better option in the same price range at FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Alex Smith holding onto ball

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 16:33:27 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has thrown 13 touchdowns and only two interceptions since Week 7 of the 2014 season, which is tied for the best touchdown to interception ratio during that span.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has gone a good job of holding onto the ball but still has not thrown a touchdown to a wide receiver since 2013. Smith has some weapons to work with this season, but owners probably will be able to find better options to use most weeks.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has only thrown seven touchdowns in five career games against the Denver Broncos. Smith also has a 1-4 record against the Broncos in those games.

Fantasy Tip: History shows that you should keep Smith ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) out of your starting lineups this week. He played very well last week, and he does play better at home, but the Broncos have had his number.

Chiefs | Alex Smith impressed with Jeremy Maclin

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 15:42:00 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin has impressed QB Alex Smith in practices this summer. "I feel like that's the ultimate tool. For coach (Andy) Reid, he just loves drawing up stuff and creating stuff, so Jeremy will be all over the field," Smith said. "He'll be inside, he'll be outside, deep, short, running the ball, throwing the ball. I mean Jeremy is a guy that can do so much." Head coach Andy Reid's schemes and offensive language remain largely the same from the time he and Maclin worked together with the Philadelphia Phillies, so Maclin doesn't need a ton of time to acclimate to his new offense.

Fantasy Tip: Kansas City's signing of Maclin drastically upgraded their receiving corps immediately. He's expected to be Smith's top target, and he could open up valuable running and receiving room for the rest of the team's offensive weapons. Consider Maclin a WR2 in 2015.
