    Chiefs' Alex Smith: Totals 290 yards of offense in Divisional Round loss

    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.

    Chiefs' Alex Smith: Workmanlike performance in win over Texans

    Smith completed 17 of 22 passes for 190 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's win over the Texans. He also gained 27 yards on five carries. It was a workmanlike performance from the veteran, who played the role of game manager as the defense continually put him in a position to succeed, while the running game also did its part. Smith made several plays with his legs, and he was unfortunate to have a long gain nullified by a penalty. Top wideout Jeremy Maclin left the game with a knee injury, but he could be back next week, as Smith looks to lead Kansas City to its 12th straight win versus either the Broncos or the Patriots.

    Chiefs' Alex Smith: Throws a pair of TDs against Oakland

    Smith completed 14 of 24 passes for 156 yards with two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions in Sunday's 23-17 win against Oakland. He also ran nine times for 61 yards. Smith once again failed to put up monster numbers this season (just 20 touchdown passes), but was his usual steady and reliable self (only seven interceptions), leading the Chiefs to a franchise-record 10 straight wins and a playoff berth. His running ability helped his owners this year, as he finished fourth among all QBs with a career-best 498 rushing yards. With a couple of formidable weapons in WR Jeremy Maclin and TE Travis Kelce, there's optimism that Smith can improve on his passing stats a bit in 2016, although his conservative nature will probably always hold him back from anywhere close to an elite level. In any case, Smith will head into the postseason on a roll, playing at Houston next weekend in a wild card game.

    Chiefs' Alex Smith: Leads Chiefs to ninth straight win

    Smith completed 15 of 22 passes for 125 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Browns. He also rushed six times for 54 yards. Smith connected with only four different receivers, which included running back Charcandrick West, who caught one pass for minus-one yard. Otherwise, only Jeremy Maclin (five catches on seven targets for 49 yards and a touchdown), Travis Kelce (six catches on eight targets for 43 yards) and Albert Wilson (three catches on four targets for 34 yards) got in on the action. Smith has now passed for fewer than 200 yards in four straight games, though he has added 134 rushing yards and a 6:2 TD:INT ratio over that span. The Chiefs have won nine straight games, and a win in Week 17 against the Raiders could give them the AFC West title, depending on how the Broncos finish out.

    Chiefs' Alex Smith: Quiet in easy victory over Ravens

    Smith completed 21 of 25 passes for just 171 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Ravens. He also gained 17 yards on four carries. The veteran wasn't leaned on very heavily Sunday, as the defense and the ground game took care of business versus an undermanned Baltimore squad. Smith has been an excellent bus driver during the Chiefs' current eight-game win streak, with just one turnover during that time, but he has also failed to top 200 passing yards four times. Smith's fantasy productivity largely depends on matchup and game flow, meaning he could be in line for a bounce-back performance next week against the Browns.

    Chiefs' Alex Smith: Just one touchdown against San Diego

    Smith completed 15 of 23 passes for 191 yards with one touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 10-3 win over the Chargers. He also ran five times for 40 yards. Smith threw a 44-yard touchdown pass to Albert Wilson right before halftime, but otherwise struggled to generate points. The field and weather conditions were a factor for most of the game, however, so Smith does have somewhat of an excuse for his lack of fantasy production. He continues to be an asset as a runner, with over 30 yards on the ground in five of the last six games, including a 78-yard performance against Detroit in Week 8. The veteran QB has a favorable matchup next week at Baltimore, which has struggled all season against the pass and surrendered five touchdowns to Russell Wilson on Sunday.

    Chiefs' Alex Smith: Another efficient game

    Smith completed 16 of 22 passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 34-20 win at Oakland. He also ran for 23 yards and scored a rushing touchdown in the first quarter. Smith hasn't been dinking and dunking as much lately, with a solid 8.7 YPA over his last three games. In fact, for the second straight week, Smith got Jeremy Maclin involved early and often as the veteran wideout caught nine passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns Sunday. Although Sunday's game marked just the fourth time all season that Smith has thrown two or more touchdowns in a game, he's accomplished that in back-to-back contests. He continues to be a steady source of rushing production too, running for over 20 yards in five consecutive games. The matchups look good for Smith and the Chiefs' passing attack over the last month, with a home game against San Diego next up on the schedule.

    Chiefs' Alex Smith: Two TDs in victory over Bills

    Smith completed 19 of 30 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Bills. He also rushed six times for 35 yards. Smith connected with only four different players on the day, as Jeremy Maclin was dominant, catching nine of 11 targets for 160 yards and a touchdown, while Smith's other score went to tight end Travis Kelce (four catches for 69 yards). It was only the third time this season Smith has thrown for multiple touchdowns in a game. Up next is a Week 13 trip to Oakland to face a Raiders defense that is allowing the third-most passing yards per game this season, though they are 18th in YPA allowed.

    Chiefs' Alex Smith: No touchdowns in blowout win

    Smith completed 20 of 25 passes for 253 yards without and touchdowns in Sunday's 33-3 win at San Diego. He also ran seven times for 33 yards. Smith has thrown for multiple touchdowns in a game just twice this year, although he's adding value as a runner, with 268 rushing yards and one touchdown. Despite the solid stats on the ground, Smith should conceivably have better passing stats with the likes of Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce on the roster. It did appear as though Smith hooked up with Kelce on a touchdown pass right before halftime, but the ruling on the field of a score was reversed via replay. The veteran QB does have a favorable schedule the rest of the way, with next week's opponent, Buffalo, probably serving as the stiffest test. However, the Bills haven't defended the pass that well this season, so the matchup isn't as scary as in years past.

    Chiefs' Alex Smith: Efficient game in upset win

    Smith completed 17-of-31 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-13 win at Denver. He also had six rushes for 33 yards. Smith struggled in the first meeting against Denver in Week 2, and it was looking like another poor fantasy outing, until he threw an 80-yard touchdown to Charcandrick West early in the fourth quarter. He once again had a tough time finishing drives, as Cairo Santos kicked five field goals. The schedule does open up for Smith over the final seven games of the season, facing a string of soft passes defenses, including a juicy matchup with Baltimore in Week 15. Next up for the Chiefs will be the Chargers in San Diego.
