Summary

Quarterback Rank: #29All Players: #182
Smith isn't flash but does the job for the Chiefs, especially when it comes to winning games for them. Smith completed 65 percent of his passes and had 19 touchdowns to just six interceptions. He didn't air the ball out much throughout the season but got more chances late in the year, finishing with three straight games of 290-plus passing yards. He missed the last game of the season because of a lacerated spleen but expects to be fine for the coming season. He'll continue to start for the run-first Chiefs. 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 four seasons). His accuracy has improved through the years and he limits turnovers. Smith doesn't take many of chances downfield, though, and plays a pretty conservative game.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Smith is not an exciting fantasy option. Until he has better options to work with in the passing game and takes more chances down the field, don't bother with him on your team. He might be worth a spot start or two but that is about it. Smith will throw for around 3,400 yards with 20 total scores and eight or so interceptions.

comments about Alex Smith

Notes

Fantasy Impact: Smith is playing well and producing better in the passing game this preseason. His play is encouraging for the coming year.

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.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin caught a long pass from QB Alex Smith on the second play of training camp Saturday, Aug. 1, and he caught a few more deep balls during the day. 'We've got a new weapon,' Smith said. 'We've got to test it out a little bit. We've known for a while what we've got with him.'

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has been focusing on footwork and technique this offseason, particularly with his downfield passes. 'For me, footwork is something that never goes away,' Smith said. 'You're constantly trying to get better with your feet.'

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has been asked to take more shots down the field this season. 'I like where Alex is,' offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said. 'But now in the spring, we want to see any quarterback shoot the ball down the field and at least test it. That gives him the comfort level the next time he's in that situation.'

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin and QB Alex Smith played catch for the first time since Maclin was acquired this offseason. Maclin said everything was smooth and that he was simply trying to get a feel for how Smith threw the football. Smith said he believes Maclin's transition into the Chiefs' offense will be relatively smooth since he has already played for head coach Andy Reid in Philadelphia.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (spleen) was medically cleared for the start of offseason practice, Monday, April 20. The Chiefs don't begin full-squad practices until May, 26.

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.
