Alex Smith completed 19-of-30 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 12 win over the Bills.
He added 35 rushing yards. The 255 passing yards were Smith's fourth-most of the season and it was just his third multi-touchdown game. Smith averaged 8.5 YPA, and it was actually earned this time, as coach Andy Reid dialed up a number of deep shots to Jeremy Maclin with the Bills playing aggressive on defense and leaving Maclin in single-coverage. Smith found him for gains of 41 (touchdown) and 37 yards. Smith's second score went to Travis Kelce from 11 yards out. Smith will be a mid-range QB2 next week against the Raiders. Nov 29 - 5:26 PM

Alex Smith completed 20-of-25 passes for 253 yards and rushed seven times for 33 yards in the Chiefs' Week 11 win over the Chargers.

Smith was his usual low-risk self, mostly settling for check-downs and screens while occasionally calling his own number and scrambling. He got a little bit of a yardage boost from Charcandrick West, who turned a catch-and-run into a 48-yard gain in the first half. Smith didn’t throw for any touchdowns, but he wasn’t intercepted either, which has been a theme for him this year. He hasn’t been picked off since Week 3. The Chiefs are actually starting to make some noise in the AFC. At 5-5, they’re right in the Wild Card hunt. Smith gets the Bills in Week 12.
Nov 22 - 8:17 PM

Alex Smith completed 17-of-31 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown in Kansas City's 29-13, Week 10 win over the Broncos.

Smith added six rushes for 33 yards. Although the Chiefs dominated today's game, it had nothing to do with Smith. Smith's drives continually bogged down, but Broncos turnovers kept setting the Chiefs up with unimpeachable field position. Smith's score was an 80-yard strike where Charcandrick West did all the work after the catch. Conservative to the point of embarrassment, Smith now has 11 total touchdowns in nine games. That's inexcusable for any NFL quarterback, no matter the offense. Smith will be a low-end QB2 against the Chargers' leaky defense in Week 11.
Nov 15 - 7:55 PM

Alex Smith completed 18-of-26 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns and rushed five times for 78 yards and another score Week 8 against the Lions.

Smith destroyed the Lions with his legs in the first half, gashing the defense for a 49-yard gain on a drive he capped with a 12-yard score in the second quarter. Smith did more damage with his arm in the second half, hooking up with Travis Kelce on a screen pass for a two-yard score the third quarter before finding Jeremy Maclin in the middle of the end zone for a 17-yard touchdown in the fourth. Smith was his usual cautious self all game and missed Travis Kelce for at least two touchdowns in the first half, but he got the job done against Detroit's overmatched defense. Despite the solid performance, Smith will not be a recommended option against the Broncos following the bye. At the halfway point of the season, Smith is on pace for 3,938 yards, 18 touchdowns and six interceptions.
Nov 1 - 12:36 PM

Alex Smith completed 21-of-32 passes for 251 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over the Steelers.

Smith took only two sacks and scrambled three times for five yards. His play was typical; largely sticking to short, easy completions while rarely testing downfield. Smith's touchdown was good to a wide receiver -- believe or not -- connecting with rookie WR Chris Conley for a six-yard score in the second half. Even against a swiss-cheese Lions pass defense in Week 8, Smith will remain a low-ceiling QB2 in fantasy leagues. This was the Chiefs' first victory since Week 1.
Oct 25 - 4:05 PM

The Chiefs have allowed the second-most sacks in the league this year.

Only the Seahawks have allowed more sacks. Alex Smith has been getting buried all year and it's starting to affect his accuracy. Over the last two weeks, Smith has completed just 56.7 percent of his passes, well below his career average of 60.5. With two of his best weapons either hurt or out for the season, Smith should be in for a bumpy ride Sunday against Pittsburgh.

Alex Smith (thumb) is listed on the Week 7 injury report, but is practicing in full.

It's a non-issue for Smith's Week 7 status. With Jeremy Maclin (concussion) questionable to play this week, Smith remains off the QB2 radar.
Oct 21 - 6:01 PM

Alex Smith completed 22-of-37 passes for 282 yards and a touchdown in Kansas City's Week 6 loss to the Vikings.

The entire Chiefs offense took a step back without Jamaal Charles, and Jeremy Maclin missed most of the fourth quarter with a concussion. Smith managed to salvage his game with a 42-yard screen-pass touchdown to Albert Wilson, but it was another underwhelming performance. With Maclin not a lock to play next week, Smith will be well off the QB2 radar.
Oct 18 - 4:32 PM

Alex Smith completed 16-of-30 passes for 181 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' 18-17, Week 5 loss to the Bears.

The Chiefs had this one in the bag, heading into halftime with a 17-3 lead. But when Jamaal Charles injured his knee early in the third quarter, the Chiefs' offense collapsed and had zero success. The wind was let out of Kansas City's sails, and the Chiefs have tumbled to 1-4. Smith missed his lone pass 20-plus yards downfield and averaged a pitiful 6.03 YPA. His touchdown went to De'Anthony Thomas on a screen to the left. Smith and the Chiefs head to Minnesota in Week 6.
Oct 11 - 4:20 PM

Alex Smith completed 31-of-45 passes for 386 yards in the Chiefs' Week 4 loss to the Bengals.

While Smith's 386 yards were a career high, he did not throw for any touchdowns or interceptions and absorbed five sacks. Kansas City settled for a whopping seven field goals in this one, losing 36-21. Smith will at least be on the streaming radar against a weak Bears defense in Week 5. Through four weeks, Smith is on pace for a 16:9 TD-to-INT ratio. He's just a QB2 in fantasy.
Oct 4 - 5:06 PM

Alex Smith completed 24-of-40 passes for 290 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Chiefs' Week 3 loss to the Packers on Monday night.

He also rushed six times for 33 yards. Don't let these pedestrian numbers fool you; Smith was flat-out terrible. The weak-armed, pop-gun quarterback went a measly 2-of-7 for 39 yards in the first half before coming out and "picking apart" the Packers' soft, prevent defense in the second half with the Chiefs trailing 31-7. Smith absorbed seven sacks and threw a hilariously-bad interception deep in Kansas City territory where he was backpedaling into his own end zone before heave-hoing a ball into double-coverage. The Packers scored a touchdown the very next play. Smith is legitimately a bottom-10 NFL quarterback. He won't be on the fantasy radar for Week 4 against the Bengals.
Sep 29 - 12:42 AM

Alex Smith completed 16-of-25 passes for 191 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions in Kansas City's 31-24, Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

He added three rushes for 15 yards. Facing what might prove to be the league's best defense, Smith had a rough night. His first pick came inside the Chiefs' own 20, while the second was inside Denver's 20. Aqib Talib made a phenomenal play on the first, but Smith let the ball get tipped on the second. Smith appeared discombobulated on Kansas City's desperation final drive, letting the clock run out in inexcusable fashion. Smith has the weapons to have his best year as a Chief, but tonight serves as a reminder of his limited ceiling. He'll be a lower-end QB2 for next week's trip to Green Bay.
Sep 18 - 12:14 AM

Alex Smith completed 22-of-33 passes for 243 yards and three touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 1 win over the Texans.

He added nine scrambles for 15 yards. Smith parlayed Brian Hoyer's season-opening red-zone pick into a ten-yard touchdown pass to Travis Kelce in the first frame. On the very next possession, Smith found Kelce streaking wide open down the left side of the field for a 42-yard score on an apparent blown coverage. Smith's third touchdown pass went to Jamaal Charles from seven yards out on a swing pass. With a much-improved supporting cast this season, Smith has a chance to finish as a low-end QB1. He'll be a high-end QB2 fantasy play in Week 2 against the Broncos.
Sep 13 - 4:49 PM

Alex Smith completed 16-of-18 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns in Kansas City's third preseason game.

Smith led the Chiefs to three straight scoring drives before getting removed in the second quarter. His first touchdown was a 29-yard pass to Jeremy Maclin, and he later hit Travis Kelce on an eight-yard slant in tight coverage. Smith's weapons have improved with the addition of Maclin and rookie Chris Conley, but he isn't more than a low-upside QB2. With Chase Daniel expected to start next week, Smith will finish the preseason 33-of-46 for 294 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.
Aug 28 - 9:27 PM

Alex Smith completed 11-of-18 passes for 81 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Chiefs' second preseason game.

He scrambled three times for 22 yards. Smith played his typical game, not taking many chances and throwing the ball away when under duress. He did hit Jeremy Maclin for a three-yard touchdown in the second quarter, but threw a pick-six to Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner on the ensuing drive. Smith threw only six interceptions all of last season. Through two preseason contests, Smith is 17-of-28 passing for 123 yards, one touchdown, and two picks.
