Smith had a solid first season with the Chiefs. He won a lot of games and produced decent numbers. He didn't throw for a ton of yards (just over 3,300) but had 24 total touchdowns to seven interceptions. Smith once again did a great job of managing the game and making the occasional big play in the offense. Smith didn't have a single 300-yard game but had multiple touchdowns five of his last six games, producing more later in the season. The Chiefs are more of a run-first team but Smith could get a few more chances to air it out this season with more weapons at receiver. Smith has a big arm, moves around the pocket pretty well and will make plays running the ball (130-plus rushing yards each of last three seasons). His accuracy is improving and he limits turnovers for the most part. Smith doesn't take a ton of chances downfield, though, and plays a pretty conservative game.
Sleeper Smith has some touchdown potential but don't expect great yardage totals. He might get a few more yards than last season but he could score 27 or so touchdowns. We think he'll improve on his numbers from last season a little more, making him a spot starter for fantasy teams or solid backup.

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota would be a perfect fit for the Kansas City Chiefs and head coach Andy Reid, even if the team is committed to QB Alex Smith, in the opinion of NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. Kiper cites the success of former QB Donovan McNabb as Reid's quarterback with the Philadelphia Eagles. However, Mariota is expected to be gone when KC picks at 18 overall, and the Chiefs are unlikely to trade up to take him. Reid said he didn't have a chance to meet with Mariota, either.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith needs more weapons around him, according to impending free-agent LB Justin Houston. He believes the Chiefs can win a championship with Smith. "For the past two years we had winning seasons. This year, I feel like our offensive line struggled a little bit, we had some injuries that caused him to get sacked more than usual. But I think we can do it," Houston noted Tuesday, Jan. 27.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has earned a reputation for throwing the shorter routes, which means receivers often don't pile up big statistics when they play with him. That could have an effect on free-agent wideouts deciding to sign with the Chiefs over other teams.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (spleen) will heal on his own and isn't expected to need surgery for a lacerated spleen. Trainer Rick Burkholder said Smith's recovery time should be around six weeks. Smith could return if the team advances deep into the playoffs. 'From a long-term standpoint and from a health standpoint from Alex, he's going to be fine. That's going to heal up,' Burkholder said. Smith wasn't diagnosed with a lacerated spleen until midway through this week after he put in a few practices.
