Alex Smith throws two interceptions and no touchdowns against Giants

Alex Smith had an uncharacteristically poor performance during a shocking overtime loss to the Giants in Week 11. Smith completed 27-of-40 passes for 230 yards and two interceptions. Smith added 27 yards on five rushing attempts.

Fantasy Impact

Alex Smith and the Chiefs did not live up to their expectations against a Giants defense that by all accounts had seemingly thrown in the towel on the season. This marked the first game of the season that Smith failed to account for a touchdown. The formerly prolific Chiefs offense has struggled over the last two games as they have scored just 26 points. Chalk this up as just a poor showing for the Chiefs as their offense is simply too talented to continue their struggles. Smith will be in a prime bounce back spot next week against a Bills defense that has been absolutely torched in consecutive games.

Alex Smith has worst game of season in Week 12

Alex Smith went 27-for-40 for 230 yards while also tossing a pair of picks during the Chiefs' shocking 12-9 loss to the Giants in Week 12. Smith also rushed five times for 27 yards on the day.

Fantasy Impact

The Chiefs have been slowing down for some time and Smith joined the movement this week as his stinker led to the Chiefs' fourth loss in their last five. Smith also tripled his interception total for the season while failing to find pay-dirt. Expect a big bounce back game for him and the offence next week against a reeling Bills team that just gave up a 50-burger to the Chargers.

Alex Smith throws two touchdowns in loss to Cowboys

Alex Smith completed 25-of-34 passes for 263 yards, two touchdowns and an interception during the Kansas City Chiefs' Week 9 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Smith also added 19 yards on five rushing attempts.

Fantasy Impact

Although in a losing effort, Smith posted a respectable fantasy performance in Week 9. Remarkably, Smith's interception against the Cowboys was his first of the season. Smith will head into the bye week having thrown at least one touchdown in every game of the season. Smith will have a mouth-watering match up against the New York Giants after the bye. Smith should be considered an elite QB1 against a defense that was shredded by Jared Goff in Week 9.

Alex Smith struggles against Denver Broncos

Alex Smith completed just 14-of-31 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown against the Denver Broncos. Smith added 33 yards on four rushing attempts. Smith was also sacked once while losing a fumble.

Fantasy Impact

The Monday night game against the Broncos marked Smith's worst fantasy performance of the season. The league's leader in completion percentage was surprisingly inaccurate in Week 8, completing just 45.2 percent of his passes. Chalk this up as a rough game against a very strong defensive unit. Going forward Smith still deserves to be treated as a QB1. The Chiefs will head to Dallas in Week 9 and take on a very exploitable secondary.

Alex Smith throws three touchdowns against Raiders

Alex Smith continued his MVP caliber play by completing 25-of-36 passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns against the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Alex Smith has been remarkable all season and shows no signs of slowing down. Smith is no longer the conservative game manager that he has been in years prior. Smith is now willing to throw the ball downfield, evidenced by his beautifully thrown 64 yard touchdown pass to WR Tyreek Hill. Smith will have a tough time replicating these stellar numbers in Week 8 against the Broncos stingy pass defense. Smith should be downgraded for this tough matchup but still deserves low-end QB1 recognition.
