Player Outlook

Alex Smith is always going to be one of those players who is better for his team than Fantasy owners. While he has been a top 15 Fantasy quarterback in two of the four years he's been the starter for the Chiefs, he's never going to be used as a No. 1 option in the majority of leagues. However, he's led Kansas City to a 41-20 record over four seasons, with three trips to the playoffs, and now he could be fighting for his job after the Chiefs traded up to No. 10 overall in this year's NFL Draft to select Patrick Mahomes from Texas Tech. We still expect Smith to be the starter this season, but he's now looking over his shoulder at a prized rookie on the bench. In 2016, Smith completed 67.1 percent of his passes for 3,502 yards, 15 touchdowns and eight interceptions and ran for 134 yards and five touchdowns. It's the fewest touchdown passes and rushing yards he's had in Kansas City, but it's also the most rushing touchdowns he's had in his career. He did have six games with at least 20 Fantasy points in a standard league last year, along with nine = with 16 points or less. We'll see if another year with Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill help Smith improve, but the sample size should be big enough to tell you he's just a low-end No. 2 Fantasy quarterback at best, especially with Jeremy Maclin (Baltimore) now gone. Smith is only worth drafting in two-quarterback leagues this year, and don't be surprised if he loses his job if Mahomes is ready and Smith struggles at some point during the season.

Player News
  • Chiefs' Alex Smith: Backed as starter
    By RotoWire Staff

    Chiefs coach Andy Reid reiterated Monday that Smith is the team's starting quarterback, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. "It's Alex's job. That's what it is," Reid said. "There's no gray area with that." The resounding support from Reid comes after both Smith and rookie first-round pick Pat Mahomes impressed in their first two outings of the preseason. The veteran is surely the less flashy option behind center, but his consistency and experience makes him more reliable, and the Chiefs have enjoyed much success with him at the helm in recent years. As a result, Smith's fantasy stock should remain virtually unchanged in 2017, while Mahomes will likely need an injury to Smith in order to have significant value outside of dynasty formats.

  • Smith completed eight of nine passes for 83 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's preseason win over Cincinnati. Earlier this week, head coach Andy Reid said Smith would play the entire first half, but the veteran signal-caller was in for just two series Saturday. However, after leading K.C. to a field goal and touchdown in consecutive drives, Smith had little left to showcase. He's now completed 12 of 15 passes for 131 yards and two scores through two preseason games. It's an encouraging starting point for the veteran, and Smith should play deeper into Friday's game against the Seahawks.

  • Chiefs' Alex Smith: Scheduled for full half
    By RotoWire Staff

    Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Smith will play the entire first half in Saturday's preseason game against Cincinnati, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. This would mark a bit of a departure from last preseason when Smith was removed midway through the second quarter in the Chiefs' second preseason game. The same could happen Saturday if he impresses early on, but Reid apparently intends to play most of his starters throughout the first half. Smith was sharp in the preseason opener, leading KC to a touchdown while completing four of six passes for 48 yards on his lone drive.

  • Chiefs' Alex Smith: Solid in preseason debut
    By RotoWire Staff

    Smith completed four of six passes for 48 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Friday's 27-17 preseason loss to the 49ers. He also gained 10 yards on his sole rush. The veteran saw the limited action he was slated for, looking sharp while connecting with Tyreek Hill, Anthony Sherman and Spencer Ware on an opening drive that culminated in a touchdown. Smith gave way to Tyler Bray after that first series, but figures to see much more action against the Bengals in the Chiefs' second preseason tilt.

  • Smith will get the start at quarterback and play the first quarter during Friday's preseason opener against the 49ers, Matt McMullen of Chiefs.com reports. Despite the Chiefs' selection of Pat Mahomes at 10th overall, Smith has been pegged as the starter all along as the rookie continues to develop behind the veteran's steady hand. Mahomes isn't even expected to play until the second half of the team's first preseason contest, with Tyler Bray set to appear in the second quarter. At this point Smith remains the obvious starter in Kansas City, but he could be challenged later on throughout the regular season.
