    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 27-for-40 for 230 yards and two interceptions against the New York Giants in Week 11. He also rushed for 27 yards on five carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Smith failed to throw a touchdown in a game for the first time this season even though it was expected to be a favorable matchup. He has also thrown three interceptions in the last two games. He will face the Buffalo Bills in Week 12 and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/6/2017 8:36pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith broke retired QB Bernie Kosar's NFL record for consecutive pass attempts to start a season without throwing an interception, making it to 287 passes before throwing his first one in the team's Week 9 game Sunday, Nov. 5. He broke Kosar's record by one.

    Huddle Up: Smith still had yet another terrific game on Sunday night despite his Chiefs dropping to 6-3 with the loss in Dallas. In fact, he's having one of the best seasons of any quarterback in the league this year, leading everyone in QB Rating (113.9) while amassing 18 touchdown passes and 2,444 yards in nine games. As a result, he's established himself as a perennial QB1.

  • Posted: 10/30/2017 10:01pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith had a season-worst performance in the team's Week 8 win Monday, Oct. 30, versus the Denver Broncos, completing just 14 of 31 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown. He also added four rushes for 33 yards, while losing a fumble as well.

    Huddle Up: Smith has been so terrific this year that tonight's poor outing can be forgiven, especially since he was squaring off with one of the best defenses in the league. At the end of the day, he's been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL this season, though it's fair to wonder if perhaps he's coming down considerably from his peak that was the first seven weeks of the campaign.

  • Posted: 10/23/2017 1:50pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (72.4%) is on pace to break the NFL's single-season completion percentage record, which was set last year by Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford. Smith is also on track to best several personal records, including yards, yards per attempt, touchdowns and rating.

    Huddle Up: Smith has arguably been the biggest surprise of the 2017 season. He's been a completely different player from a production standpoint. It may not feel right, but Smith has cemented himself as an every-week QB1 option.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 9:47pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 25-for-36 for 342 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions during the team's Week 7 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: After scuffling a bit against the Steelers, Smith bounced back by topping the 300-yard passing mark for the third time this season -- for comparison, he surpassed that number just once all of last year. Smith also passed for multiple scores for the fourth time and has yet to throw an interception this season. The veteran continues to play the best ball of his career and is a must start for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 10/17/2017 8:30pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith has completed 63 percent of his passes and boasts a 19:4 touchdown-to-interception ratio in 10 career games against the Oakland Raiders. Since joining the Chiefs, Smith has played in 67 games; in seven of them he finished with better than a 9.89 yards per attempt average, four of which have come versus Oakland.

    Huddle Up: Smith has been throwing downfield more often and with more success than ever in 2017. The Raiders really haven't made too many strides when it comes to stopping quarterbacks from last year, so start Smith with confidence for Thursday Night Football this week.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 6:59pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 19 of his 34 pass attempts for 246 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions while running four times for 13 yards in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: The Steelers seem to be the kryptonite for Smith and the Chiefs. It wasn't a terrible game for Smith, but nowhere near some of the stat lines he has posted earlier in the season. He and his teammates do not have much time to mope, as they'll be back in action Thursday on the road against the Raiders.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 8:59pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith tied the NFL record for most touchdown passes (11) without throwing an interception in the first five games to begin a season in the Super Bowl era.

    Huddle Up: Smith has really been something, vaulting himself to legitimate QB1 status on a weekly basis. The Chiefs' offense has surprisingly been a juggernaut this year, leading the NFL in points scored with 164, and Smith has obviously been a huge reason for that. If owners have another QB1 option on their roster, though, it would actually be a smart idea to try and trade Smith at his peak to a quarterback-needy team.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 3:20pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is no longer on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Smith travels to Houston and has an acceptable matchup for owners in need of a starting option due to bye weeks.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 4:20pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Smith has been playing well during the early part of the season and has accounted for nine total touchdowns in four games. Owners that have their starting quarterback on a bye week could consider Smith as a one-week starting option for their fantasy team.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 2:57pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Smith should be able to play against the Houston Texans this week and has thrown eight touchdowns and zero interceptions in four games this season. He could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues but owners in most leagues may have better options to use in their starting lineups.

  • Posted: 10/2/2017 9:58pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 27 of 37 passes for 293 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 4 win Monday, Oct. 2, against the Washington Redskins. He also ran seven times for 56 yards and a rushing touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Wow, about a quarter of the way into the 2017 season and Smith has been as superb as any quarterback in the league. The former No. 1 overall draft pick has looked remarkably consistent thus far, having completed more than 73 percent of his passes in each of Kansas City's four games, while having accounted for nine touchdowns and zero turnovers. There's no question he's a QB1 right now, but odds are he's peaked and his production figures to go down a bit sooner than later.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 6:33pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 16 of his 21 pass attempts for 155 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 road game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Smith didn't throw the ball down the field much, and frankly he didn't have time. He was sacked five times. But Smith was aided again by the running of rookie Kareem Hunt, and Smith did just enough to not make mistakes and lead his team to another win. He isn't a huge fantasy asset, but he isn't a bad No. 2 option in most leagues heading into Week 4 against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 2:21pm ET

    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.
