Smith led all 5 first half drives for the Chiefs, which resulted in 7 first half points. Smith completed 11 out of 18 passes for 81 passing yards. He threw 1 TD pass to Jeremy Maclin and had 1 interception that was returned for a pick six. He also chipped in with 22 rushing yards on 3 carries.

Fantasy Impact: Smith improved on his performance from the first preseason game, but this is a pretty typical stat line for a half for Smith. While he tried to pass down the field a few times, his longest completion went for 23 yards to TE Travis Kelce. Smith currently ranks as the 24th QB according to the FantasyPros ECR.

Smith is extremely conservative, which of course keeps him from big games, but this season we should see KC throw the ball more than they have in the past with Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce both top receivers. Add in Jamaal Charles' ability to catch the ball and Smith's floor looks higher this year.

Smith is better than he's given credit for, but he's no fantasy ace. Finishing inside the top-20 is a win for him, so don't expect the world.

Alex Smith drives me crazy from a fantasy perspective and can throw over 3,000 yards and over 20+ TDs, but he is just not presenting enough upside to draft.

Finished 18th QB overall in 2014 despite not throwing a TD pass to a wide receiver.

Smith got some shiny new wide receivers on the outside, but it's all for nothing when he can't, or won't throw the ball down the field or outside the numbers. I expect him to once again work the middle of the field and perhaps make Travis Kelce a Pro Bowler.

Jeremy Maclin finally gives Alex Smith a legitimate wide receiver. For now, all we know is that the Chiefs will have a WR that catches a TD in 2015. That cannot be said for 2014.
