    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was 21-for-28 for 251 yards and scored one touchdown in a 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: The one touchdown happened to be a go-ahead score to Travis Kelce. Smith only missed on seven of his passes, so with an approximate hit rate of 75 percent that constitutes a good day. And the Chiefs are 2-0, which is even bigger. Smith's first two starts help him maintain status as a QB1 option.

  • Posted: 9/9/2017 7:37pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce endorsed QB Alex Smith as the starting quarterback. 'He's my quarterback,' Kelce said. 'I'll take him every single day of the week, no matter what.'

    Huddle Up: Smith had a monster game against the Patriots in Week 1, but fantasy owners shouldn't overreact. He is still more of a game manager than a playmaker, and he remains a QB2.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 9:18pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 28 of 35 passes for 368 yards and four touchdowns against the New England Patriots on Thursday, Sept. 7. It was Smith's first 300-plus-yard passing game since Week 1 of 2016.

    Huddle Up: Not only was Smith efficient, he had two completions of more than 70 yards -- a rarity in Kansas City's usually conservative attack. While it's unwise to overreact to a single performance, there's no question the Chiefs' offense looked more dynamic than it has in years with Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Kareem Hunt looking like playmakers. If Smith went undrafted, he'd be worth bringing on board as your No. 2 passer.

  • Posted: 8/25/2017 9:05pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Alex Smith completed seven of his 17 passes for 44 yards in a 26-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the preseason Friday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: Smith isn't known for big stat lines, but this was ugly even by his standards. His complete lack of upside limits him to low-end QB2 status.

  • Posted: 8/21/2017 8:42am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith is the team's unquestioned starting quarterback, according to head coach Andy Reid.

    Huddle Up: Patrick Mahomes has been turning heads in camp, but Smith doesn't appear on the hot seat. What's not hot, however, is his fantasy stock. He's a mediocre QB2 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 8/20/2017 1:28pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 8-for-9 for 83 yards and one touchdown in the preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals Saturday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: Smith has been a consistent player since has signed with the Chiefs and threw for a career-high 3,502 yards in 2016. He recorded 20 total touchdowns last season but probably should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

  • Posted: 8/4/2017 10:18am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith and WR Tyreek Hill has been a 'great' connection all camp long, according to Chiefs.com's B.J. Kissel.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs forced themselves to make Hill their top receiver after releasing Jeremy Maclin this offseason, so it is a good thing Hill appears to be making the necessary strides in camp. Whether or not he can handle the No. 1 duties during camp or merely ends up being a complement to Travis Kelce is a matter of some debate, but news like this suggests the former is more than possible. He should be considered a WR2 with strong upside in fantasy.

  • Posted: 6/16/2017 8:01pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has 'started back faster' in OTAs than ever before, according to assistant head coach Brad Childress.

    Huddle Up: Even if Smith is off to the best start of his life in OTAs, it doesn't change his value to fantasy owners. He is a low-upside QB2.

  • Posted: 6/3/2017 6:40pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith said he was expecting free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) to be his No. 1 receiver again this season and was 'shocked' by Maclin's release. 'For us, we have to move on a roll as a group,' Smith said. 'We obviously wish Jeremy well wherever he lands, and he'll land on his feet.'

    Huddle Up: Smith is a game manager for the Kansas City offense, and losing Maclin doesn't change his value. He remains strictly a fantasy backup.

  • Posted: 4/27/2017 10:19pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith will remain the team's starter, according to head coach Andy Reid.

    Huddle Up: There was a 100 percent guarantee Reid was going to say this, and he certainly means it... for now. Reid says rookie Patrick Mahomes will 'come in and learn,' but it's hard not to feel a nagging sense of deja vu to a time when a young quarterback named Colin Kaepernick backed up a title contender led by Smith. The veteran never had much fantasy appeal due to his dink-and-dunk nature, but even as your fantasy backup it's hard to generate much enthusiasm for Smith.

  • Posted: 2/27/2017 8:19pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt reiterated what head coach Andy Reid has been saying throughout the offseason, that QB Alex Smith will continue to be the starting quarterback 'going into 2017.'

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs, like a handful of other clubs, have been linked to Tony Romo, but Hunt, Reid and general manager John Dorsey have all publicly stated their support of Smith over the past number of weeks. And who can blame them? Since arriving in Kansas City in 2013, the former No. 1 overall draft pick has accumulated 76 touchdown passes compared to just 28 interceptions. Furthermore, he's completed higher than 65 percent of his throws. He deserves to remain the starter.

  • Posted: 1/16/2017 10:58am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was given a vote of confidence Monday, Jan. 16, in regards to holding onto the starting job in 2017. Head coach Andy Reid told reporters: 'Do I still think we can win with Alex? Yeah, we were right there.'

    Huddle Up: With weapons like Travis Kelce, Jeremy Maclin and Tyreek Hill, a less risk-averse quarterback might be able to put up low-end QB1 numbers in Kansas City. Instead, Reid is apparently willing to live through another season of conservative offense and presumably another short playoff stay with Smith as his guy. The Chiefs would be wise to at least consider the heir apparent at the position in April's draft.

  • Posted: 1/15/2017 9:38pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 20 of 34 for 172 yards, with one touchdown and one interception, in an 18-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: It's hard to tell whether Smith was hampered by the Steelers' solid defense or by the weather conditions, but Kansas City's offense had one passing touchdown and one rushing score. Smith has some limitations that make him no better than a QB2 in most drafts entering 2017, but it could be much worse for the Chiefs.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 7:56pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 15 of his 28 pass attempts for 163 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in the Week 15 game against the Tennessee Titans. He did run four times for 11 yards and a touchdown to somewhat salvage his stat line.

    Huddle Up: Smith has seven straight games with one or no passing touchdowns and he hasn't had a 300-yard passing game since Week 1. Needless to say he is more of a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues for the remainder of the season.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 7:18pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 24 of his 31 pass attempts for 261 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also rushed twice for 10 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Smith remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats, and that's especially the case in Week 12 in a difficult matchup on the road against the suffocating pass defense of the Denver Broncos.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 1:42pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith threw for 178 yards and an interception on 25-for-38 passing. Smith missed Week 9 with a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Smith has posted exactly one good fantasy game in 2016, which was the season opener. He should remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 2:02pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) practiced in full for a third straight day Friday, Nov. 11, and he is expected to start in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Smith faces a Panthers pass defense which ranks 29th in the NFL, allowing 286.0 yards per game with 17 touchdowns and 26 pass plays of 20 or more yards. He is a solid streaming option if you need a bye-week replacement in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 4:37am ET

    The Kansas City Chiefs are considering moving on from QB Alex Smith following the season and plan to use the final seven games to evaluate his talent level.

    Huddle Up: No one's saying it would be a huge mistake to cut Smith yet, but Kansas City has at least made the playoffs behind Smith's decent numbers and the Chiefs are on track to do well all season. This could be a ploy to lure Kirk Cousins to Kansas City should he leave the Washington Redskins in free agency. Stay tuned.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 5:18pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs aren't exactly a pass-happy team, but Smith has some DFS appeal in Week 10 against a Carolina secondary that has been routinely torched this season.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 10:50am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (concussion) will return to the starting lineup in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Andy Reid.

    Huddle Up: Nick Foles reportedly could have put some heat on Smith with a good performance in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he didn't exactly impress in that spot. Carolina's front seven is stout, while the back end is a bit green, so Smith should be able to put up quality QB2 numbers this week for owners looking for a bye-week quarterback to replace the likes of Matthew Stafford, Andrew Luck or Derek Carr.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 7:55am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ear, head) is expected to return to action for Week 10's game against the Carolina Panthers, according to a team official. He has already been ruled out for Week 9's game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars as a precautionary measure.

    Huddle Up: Nick Foles will receive the starting nod against the Jags this afternoon and was impressive in relief versus the Colts in Week 8, going 16-for-22 for 222 yards and two touchdowns. If you're in desperate need of a bye week replacement at quarterback, he's a serviceable option, although most fantasy owners should be able to do better.

  • Posted: 11/3/2016 8:19pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

    Huddle Up: Well, Smith isn't going to be playing in Week 9 against the Jaguars, but this could be a sign he'll be ready to get back under center in Week 10. In his absence, Nick Foles will draw the start, but isn't a recommended option for just about all leagues.

  • Posted: 11/2/2016 11:10am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head) has been ruled out for the team's Week 9 game because of a head injury. He said he did not fail any concussion tests but decided to sit out a week after talking with head coach Andy Reid and members of the front office. He hopes to play against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Owners can check in Smith's status next week to see if he is on track to play in Week 10. Nick Foles will start for the Chiefs this week and has some success as a replacement last week. He will be facing the Jacksonville Jaguars and can be a bye week replacement in deeper leagues but should be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/31/2016 11:03am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head) reportedly did not suffer a concussion in a Week 8 win over the Indianapolis Colts, according to team trainer Rick Burkholder.

    Huddle Up: Burkholder told reporters Monday the only reason Smith was held out was because he was put in the concussion protocol two separate times. Given how woozy the quarterback looked after the first-quarter hit that got him pulled in the first quarter and how long laid on the ground after the hit that eventually led to his exit in the second half, the Chiefs simply aren't being truthful. It is obvious, however, Kansas City is planning on starting Smith in Week 9 at the moment.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 12:22pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (concussion) suffered a concussion during the team's Week 8 game and will not return.

    Huddle Up: Smith briefly left earlier in the game when he was first checked for a concussion but had to leave for a second time and was officially diagnosed with a concussion. His status for Week 9 is uncertain, so owners should have other options ready to use. Nick Foles would start if Smith is sidelined but would not be a strong fantasy option.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 11:08am ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ear) was able to return to the team's Week 8 game after missing some time because of an ear injury.

    Huddle Up: Smith was checked for a concussion but was cleared and is back on the field. He has posted some decent numbers this season but should only be a starting option against favorable matchups.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 10:55am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ear, head) has been cleared of a concussion but is considered questionable to return to the team's Week 8 game because of a cut on his ear.

    Huddle Up: It appears like Smith may have a chance to return to the Week 8 game, but the Chiefs may keep him out for the rest of the game. Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Smith will have to miss more time.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 9:51am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head) left the team's Week 8 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Smith will have a chance to return to the game. Smith has posted decent numbers but should be considered a No. 2 quarterback. Nick Foles would start if Smith misses time but should also be considered a backup quarterback for owners.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 7:27pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 17 of his 24 pass attempts for 214 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 7 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also rushed four times for seven yards.

    Huddle Up: Smith has been a decent bye-week replacement and low-priced DFS option lately. He is a good streaming option in most fantasy leagues against a terrible Indianapolis secondary.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 10:58pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith had a career-high 50 pass attempts in the Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He finished 30 for 50 with 287 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while running once for two yards.

    Huddle Up: Smith remains a QB2 and bye-week replacement option only once the team returns from its own bye in Week 5.
