    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is still in the hospital because of the infection in his leg and likely will not be ready to play at the start of the 2019 season.

    Huddle Up: It is not known if Smith will be able to play again, so owners will need to monitor the situation during the offseason. He is a solid No. 2 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy but likely will not be selected in drafts next season.

  • Posted: 12/6/2018 7:51am ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) is battling an infection related to the surgery he had on his broken fibula and tibia, according to sources. The situation is being treated seriously.

    Huddle Up: It's obviously a gut-wrenching reality that a potentially career-threatening injury just became more serious. Everyone is pulling for him in his recovery. However, in an attempt to get back to business - Smith is a QB2 for next year's drafts. If you thought about keeping him in a full dynasty, this news obviously hinders that thought process.

  • Posted: 11/19/2018 7:50am ET

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) had surgery to repair a broken tibia and fibula Sunday, Nov. 19. He's out for the season.

    Huddle Up: Colt McCoy takes over, and he's a pickup in two-QB leagues only.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 2:30pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) suffered a broken fibula and tibia during the Week 11 game and will need to undergo surgery, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Smith likely will miss the rest of the season, so Colt McCoy should be the starting quarterback moving forward. McCoy was solid after replacing Smith in the Week 11 game but should only be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 12:02pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 11 game and will not return.

    Huddle Up: Smith may have suffered a serious injury, so owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days to find out the severity of the injury. Colt McCoy likely would take over the starting job if Smith misses time but would not be a great fantasy option.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 2:28pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith went 20-for-32 for 178 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Smith has been held to under 200 yards in each of the last three games but does have four touchdowns during that span. He will be facing the Atlanta Falcons in Week 9 but probably will not be a starting option in many fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 7:25pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed 14-of-25 passes for 178 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: It was a defensive slog and typical NFC East battle with plenty of defense and not many big plays. Smith heads into Week 8 on the road against the Giants as more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 1:32pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed 21-of-36 passes for 163 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 6 win against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Smith had a season-low in passing yardage, but he has managed a total of four touchdowns over his past two home games. He remains more of a QB2 heading into Week 7, especially against a sturdy defense like the Dallas Cowboys coming into town next Sunday.

  • Posted: 10/8/2018 8:49pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed 23-of-39 passes for 275 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints on Monday, Oct. 8 and he also ran for a score.

    Huddle Up: Smith was passing frequently in the second half with the game starting to get out of hand, which is great news for fantasy owners. Still, his numbers were rather subpar in a head-to-head battle against Drew Brees on his special night. Smith and the Redskins will look to rebound against Carolina in Week 6.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 8:51pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed 12-of-20 passes for 220 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 3 game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Smith did a good job in this one, and he had great protection. The quarterback wasn't sacked once, and he had plenty of time and a great run game to take the pressure off. He remains a decent low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. However, the Redskins are off in Week 4 for their bye, so make other plans.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 1:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed 33-of-46 passes for 292 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 loss against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Smith was sacked three times and he fumbled once, although the team was able to get that one back. The Colts pressured him, and the only reason he had a decent yardage total was because of short to intermediate low-risk pass routes late in the game trying to get his team back into it. He remains nothing more than a QB2 heading into Week 3 against the Packers.

  • Posted: 8/16/2018 6:53pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith completed four of his six pass attempts for 48 yards against the New York Jets in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16.

    Huddle Up: Smith tends to be a little underappreciated in fantasy circles. He is a quality QB2, and he can deliver QB1 numbers against favorable matchups.

  • Posted: 6/6/2018 12:46pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith and WR Jamison Crowder already appear to have good chemistry. According to NBCSportsWashington's Rich Tandler, Smith looked comfortable looking Crowder's way during goal-line plays at organized team activities Wednesday, June 6.

    Huddle Up: It will do Crowder well to have new eyes looking his way, not that Kirk Cousins didn't look his way. Crowder was a breakout candidate last offseason but expectations were not met. He's a breakout candidate once again and a legitimate low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 3/14/2018 2:39pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was officially traded to the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for CB Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round draft choice.

    Huddle Up: Patrick Mahomes will take over as the starting quarterback for the Chiefs and has a chance to have success because of the pass catchers on the roster. Owners in most leagues should consider him a No. 2 quarterback, but he can be a No. 1 quarterback in keeper leagues.

  • Posted: 3/14/2018 2:33pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith was officially acquired by the Washington Redskins Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for CB Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round draft choice.

    Huddle Up: Smith has posted solid numbers over the last several seasons and will have a nice group of pass catchers to work with in Washington. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback against favorable matchups.

    Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins could theoretically be franchise tagged by the Redskins, but if that were to occur then Cousins would not entertain a long-term deal with his new team and he would make a whopping $34 million under the tag. If Cousins did not immediately sign the tag, he could not be traded anyway. Furthermore, the Redskins would not be able to do much else in free agency and also just traded for Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

    Huddle Up: Tagging Cousins makes no sense from Washington's perspective, especially considering the recent acquisition of Smith. Cousins will be playing in a new city in 2018 and the Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Cleveland Browns are the most realistic suitors. Cousins will be a QB1 option wherever he plays, although Minnesota is his best-case scenario on paper.

  • Posted: 1/31/2018 12:40pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has played relatively poorly against the NFC East in his career. In 18 career games versus the division Smith has averaged a scanty 217.4 yards and 1.2 touchdowns. Smith will be playing eight games in the NFC East.

    Huddle Up: Smith is coming off a career year in which he threw for over 4,000 yards and 26 touchdowns. Furthermore, his yardage has increased each season since 2014. While he's not a reliable week-to-week No. 1 fantasy quarterback, he's a high-end backup option.

  • Posted: 1/30/2018 7:23pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Alex Smith, who was reportedly traded from the Kansas City Chiefs late in the night Tuesday, Jan. 30, has agreed to a four-year, $94 million contract extension that will keep him with the Redskins though the end of the 2022 season. The deal will reportedly include approximately $70 million in guaranteed money. Per NFL rules, the trade cannot be officially completed until the first day of the new league year (3 p.m. on March 14).

    Huddle Up: The extension was part of the agreement to get the trade done - Smith had only one year remaining on his old deal - and he will be under contract through his age-38 season. While the official compensation has yet to be announced, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports it will include a third-round pick and a player to be named Wednesday. Smith provides Washington with a solid option under center as it moves on from Kirk Cousins, but he figures to fall back into QB2 territory as a result of the trade.

  • Posted: 1/30/2018 7:08pm ET

    The Washington Redskins reportedly reached an agreement to acquire Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith on Tuesday, Jan. 30. While the compensation the Chiefs will receive has yet to be released and any trade involving Smith can?t be completed until the first day of the new league year (3 p.m. on March 14), sources say the deal is in place and will proceed.

    Huddle Up: So long, Kirk Cousins. The Redskins also reportedly signed Smith to a four-year extension, so Cousins will be on the move and Smith has some degree of stability as he enters his age-34 season in 2018. Smith won't have quite the offensive firepower he had to work with in Kansas City, so owners should be prepared to lower their expectations for him back down to pre-2017 levels, making him an unexciting QB2 for fantasy purposes.

    The Kansas City Chiefs reportedly reached an agreement to trade QB Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, Jan. 30. While the compensation the Chiefs will receive has yet to be released and any trade involving Smith can?t be completed until the first day of the new league year (3 p.m. on March 14), sources say the deal is in place and will proceed.

    Huddle Up: Smith was expected to attract a second-round pick, so it's a fair bet the Redskins gave up at least that much. The trade obviously clears a path for rookie Patrick Mahomes to take over, and he will certainly enter 2018 as a wild-card for fantasy purposes. Mahomes has a huge arm and can create plays with his leges, but with only a Week 17 game under his belt this year, he is still plenty raw. He should be considered an inconsistent QB2 for fantasy purposes this summer.

  • Posted: 1/30/2018 3:56pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has played 13 seasons in the NFL but is not close to hanging up his cleats. 'I love what I do too much, I love the challenge of it, I still feel great, my body feels great,' Smith said.

    Huddle Up: Smith has quietly put up consistent numbers over the last few years, but he doesn't do enough to be considered a weekly QB1 option. While his future is unclear as of now, he will likely be in high-end QB2 territory no matter what jersey he's wearing.

  • Posted: 1/30/2018 9:18am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith told The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday, Jan. 30, that his preference is to return to the team in 2018.

    Huddle Up: It's not like Smith could have realistically answered with anything else, although he acknowledged the situation is out of his control. Usually, a 33-year-old quarterback coming off a career season doesn't have to face such questions, but Kansas City seems to be itching to get the Patrick Mahomes era started as soon as possible. The Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns are among the destinations that make the most sense at the moment if/when Smith gets traded this spring.

  • Posted: 1/9/2018 6:18am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith could be an option for the Cleveland Browns after the Browns hired general manager John Dorsey, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Dan Labbe. Dorsey was the Chiefs' general manager when he acquired Smith from the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Smith was one of the best quarterbacks in fantasy through the first four weeks of 2017, but he was inconsistent the rest of the way. He finished as a midrange QB1, and that might not be attainable with a different roster. There are options in that low-end QB1/high-end QB2 range with more upside.

  • Posted: 1/6/2018 5:14pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 24-for-33 for 264 yards and two touchdowns in a Wild Card loss to the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Smith did all he could to keep the Chiefs from surrendering a 19-point halftime lead. In the end Smith completed about three-fourths of his passes with no glaring mistakes. Look to see where Smith ends up in 2018. Right now he's a lower-end QB1 but that could change if Smith goes to a team with fewer offensive weapons.

  • Posted: 1/6/2018 9:12am ET

    The Kansas City Chiefs will not actively seek out trade partners for QB Alex Smith this offseason, but they will listen, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, who speculated the one thing that may cause 'all sides to pull back' is if the Chiefs make a run to the Super Bowl.

    Huddle Up: Kansas City drafted its quarterback of the future last spring in Patrick Mahomes, who has consistently turned heads in practice and left another positive impression by going 22-of-35 for 284 yards with an interception against the Denver Broncos in his first career start in Week 17. If Smith is put on the market, there will be no shortage of suitors, with former Chiefs boss John Dorsey - now with the Cleveland Browns - at the top of the list.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 5:32pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 25 of his 39 pass attempts for 304 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins and he also ran four times for 13 yards.

    Huddle Up: Smith and the Chiefs hit a bump in the road midway through the season, losing six of seven game. The QB turned it over four times from Nov. 5-26, but he has righted the ship and the Chiefs are going well again with three straight wins. He posted his fifth 300-yard game of the season for fantasy owners who stuck with him in the championship game.

  • Posted: 12/11/2017 2:43pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has thrown 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions on passes that are at least 20 yards past the line of scrimmage. He had thrown 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions on such passes in the previous six years combined.

    Huddle Up: Smith is easily having the best passing season of his career. He has shed his reputation as being shy on throwing deep passes, thanks in large part to speed demon and deep threat Tyreek Hill. Smith remains a starting fantasy quarterback for the last few weeks of the season.
