Alex Smith was 17/31 with two touchdowns and a late INT ending the Chiefs chances of completing a game winning drive.

Fantasy Impact: Alex Smith took a step back from his week four performance, completing just 55% of his passes in week five. The two touchdowns helped make for a mediocre fantasy performance though. Smith should be viewed as a QB2 or decent bye week replacement based on his match up.

Alex Smith was 20-26 for 248 yards and three touchdowns in a very effective week four.

Fantasy Impact: Smith has three touchdown passes in each of his last two games and has quietly been putting up quality numbers. His fantasy value falls somewhere in the QB2 range in a run first offense under Andy Reid. He is a solid bye week replacement, based on his match up, and is a decent add if you're in need of a fill-in quarterback.

Alex Smith led the Chief's to 303 yards total offense against the New England Patriots in the first half. This is the most yards ever gained against New England in a half of football. The onslaught would continue after the half with the Chiefs winning 41-14. Smith went 20/26 with 248 yards and three passing touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Smith is beginning master this offense, and his ability to distribute the ball effectively should make him a solid play moving forward.

The Patriots are averaging a league best 7.3 fantasy points per game for opposing quarterbacks so far this season. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Alex Smith is off to a rocky start with an 81.5 passer rating through three games. He has also been sacked 11 times so far on the young season. The Patriots are tied for the league lead in team interceptions with six and have only given up 506 yards passing in three games. Alex Smith is not a viable fantasy option this week except for maybe in 2QB leagues as a low-end QB2.

Alex Smith and the Chiefs had a dismal day in the opener, losing 26-10 to the Titans. He went 19/35, for 178 total yards with 1 TD and 3 INTs. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: It's just one game, and the opener at that, but Alex Smith, who has always protected the ball well, threw 3 picks against the Titans. Reports have said that the Chiefs want Alex to take more chances downfield, but they may have to walk that back a bit after today.

Alex Smith is projected to have 224 yards passing and 1 touchdown in the game against Tennessee. (Source: FantasyPros)

Fantasy Impact: Smith is a prudent, cautious game manager who is being coached to take more chances downfield. Clearly, Andy Reid likes Smith, as he just signed an extension, but he does need to trust his instincts and skills in order to increase production.

Smith was owed $8 million for 2014, so the deal is actually worth $76 million over 5 seasons, or an average of $15.2 million per year, with $45 million guaranteed. (Source: Terez Paylor on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This seems to be a fair deal for both parties. Smith has improved under Andy Reid and seems more willing to make or attempt tough throws. He remains a low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes.

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.
