Alex Smith was mostly ineffective in the Chiefs preseason opener against the Bengals. Smith only played the 3 series for the Chiefs, in which he went 3-5 for 19 yards and a lost fumble on his second series of the game.

Fantasy Impact: The Chiefs need Smith to build on the success he had last year to have a chance to compete in 2014. Smith is a QB2, or a bye week filler at this point. Smith is hoping to land a contract extension, but the Chiefs do not seem willing to overpay for him.

Smith, who has one year left on his contract, wants to sign an extension and continue his career in Kansas City. The Chiefs, with about $9.4 million of salary cap space available, are facing a quandary with Smith, 30, and outside linebacker Justin Houston, 25, entering the final years of their contracts before they can become unrestricted free agents.

Fantasy Impact: Smith continues to act with professionalism and admits that while he would like a long term deal, he says, "there’s still plenty of time. I still have a whole year left. And who knows what will happen?" Smith is the ideal quarterback to have while looking for an heir. That being said, a 2-3 year contract wouldn't be surprising.

Will remain a solid QB2 choice in Andy Reid's West Coast scheme.

Smith is better than he's given credit for and his offense can set him up for more success in 2014. He just needs more weapons.

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said at the beginning of training camp that he’d break off contract talks at a certain point to eliminate distractions. But with camp over and the regular season a week away, Smith is no closer to deciding what that date is. “No, I haven’t — I wish I had an answer for…

Ah, the old game manager Alex Smith. Unspectacular yes, but in the final rounds on draft day if you want a steady bye week option, Smith is your guy. Heck, he even averaged 28.7 YPG last year!

Alex Smith had a nice season for the Kansas City Chiefs and his production was off the charts the last five weeks of the season. He's a great sleeper QB2 who may carry that end of season production into 2014. The Chiefs failed to add an impact wide receiver in the draft though, which was disappointing. They also suffered a ton of free agency losses on the offensive line.
Legion Report | Aug 25th
Smith was a model of consistency in 2013 as he propelled a lackluster Chiefs Offense back to dominance. We do not think that Smith will replicate the same head turning numbers due to the lack of offensive receiving weapons on the current roster. KC was stung hard as Emmanuel Sanders had all but signed on the dotted line before pulling out and heading to divisional foe – Denver. Until KC can land a Top WR option, we would let other owners trot down that road called Danger!

Alex Smith may be leading the Chiefs on the field, but how is he holding them back in fantasy?
