Player Outlook

Alex Smith is never going to be thought of as a good Fantasy quarterback, but he's actually been serviceable in two of the past three seasons. Last year, the Chiefs signal-caller finished as the No. 13 quarterback in standard leagues, just three points shy of being a Top 12 option. And in 2013, Smith was the No. 15 quarterback and seven points shy of the Top 12. In 2015, Smith completed 65 percent of his passes for 3,486 yards, 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions and ran for 498 yards and two touchdowns. He had seven games with at least 20 Fantasy points, including four in the final six weeks of the season. But he also had five games with 15 points or less, and it's hard to trust him on a weekly basis. He's an OK option as a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues, but you probably don't have to draft him in most formats. Instead, plan on Smith as a bye-week or injury replacement, and hopefully the week you start him is the week he delivers a solid performance with at least 20 points.

  • Chiefs' Alex Smith: Posts solid performance
    By RotoWire Staff

    Smith finished Sunday's game with a 139.9 quarterback rating by completing 9 of his 12 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown. Smith has had two solid preseason showings to begin things and remains the undisputed starting quarterback for the Chiefs. He stayed in for two of the team's three offensive series in the second quarter, and should see increased action in the team's third preseason contest. If he can continue his success into the regular season, the Chiefs may balance out their attack more than in seasons past.

  • Coach Andy Reid indicated that the team's tentative plan is for Smith to play the first half of Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports. That's potentially subject to modification, but generally speaking, the Chiefs' plan for Saturday's contest is for the first-team offense to play the first half, the second-stringers to work the third quarter and the third-stringers to be rolled out in the fourth quarter.

  • Smith completed 3-of-4 passes for 36 yards while leading a touchdown drive in his only action of Saturday's preseason opener against the Seahawks. Smith's 20-yard completion to Jeremy Maclin worked the ball down to the 1-yard line before running back Spencer Ware punched it in. The veteran signal-caller doesn't possess an elite arm, but his tremendous decision-making makes Smith's 20-yard completion to Jeremy Maclin worked the ball down to the 1-yard line before running back Spencer Ware punched it in. The veteran signal-caller doesn't possess an elite arm, but his tremendous decision-making gives him a high floor due to a lack of turnovers.

  • Smith's coaches believe he's having his best training camp since joining the Chiefs, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports. The Chiefs recently inked free agent Nick Foles to a contract, but it would take a lot for him to unseat Smith for the starting gig and Smith appears to have stepped up his game. Teicher specifically highlighted a three-play sequence in the red zone drill (Smith struggled in the red zone last season) in which the veteran signal-caller tossed three straight touchdown passes. Co-offensive coordinator Matt Nage also praised his decision making, noting "His decision making is great. There's no second-guessing." Given the Chiefs' wealth of running backs, the offense will likely continue to be run-oriented. However, Smith's improvements under center should provide a bit more balance to the offense.

  • Smith completed 29 of 50 passes for 246 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-20 Divisional Round loss to the Patriots. He also gained 44 yards on nine rushes. The veteran was productive overall but could only manage 4.9 yards per completion on the afternoon, a poor recipe for trying to topple the Patriots in their home stadium in the playoffs. Smith did have No.1 receiver Jeremy Maclin at his disposal after the receiver was questionable all week with knee and ankle injuries, but only targeted him three times on the afternoon. He did manage completions to an astounding 10 different players, and did not turn the ball over. Despite the disappointing conclusion, the 11-year veteran did enjoy a successful 2015 campaign, throwing for a career-high 3,486 yards and tossing 20 touchdown passes.
