Alex Smith leads Chiefs to win over Eagles

Alex Smith completed 21 of 28 passes for 251 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Chiefs' 27-20 win over Philadelphia. He added four rushes for 21 yards and did not turn the ball over.

Fantasy Impact

Smith came back down to Earth after his massive opening week against the Patriots, but was still solid in this one. He remains a streaming option in all leagues.

Alex Smith spectacular against Patriots

Alex Smith completed 28 of 35 passes for 368 yards and four touchdowns in Thursday's win over the Patriots. He also had five rushes for three yards.

Fantasy Impact

It was tough to think of a more shocking fantasy performance, as the Chiefs largely ditched their typical conservative play-calling on offense and let Smith loose. He completed two 70-yard-plus touchdown passes, and rarely seemed flustered the entire night. Smith has not suddenly turned into a fantasy stud, so don't get overly excited by the one random game. But the playmaking ability of both Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt may open up the offense a bit more than prior seasons, which could make Smith a decent streamer given the right matchup.

Alex Smith unimpressive against Seattle

Alex Smith completed seven of 17 passes for 44 yards and added two rushing attempts for four yards in Friday's preseason loss to Seattle.

Fantasy Impact

Smith played through the first half in this one and, although it was his worst performance of the preseason, he can be forgiven for struggling against the tough Seattle defense. Smith has been confirmed as the Chiefs' starter, and although he may be looking over his shoulder at Patrick Mahomes, he should have plenty of rope.

Alex Smith the confirmed QB1 in Kansas City

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid confirmed that Alex Smith is the team's starting quarterback in 2017. "It's Alex's job," Reid said Monday. That's what it is. There's no gray area with that."

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Reid reaffirmed that Smith will open the 2017 season as the Chiefs' QB1, and barring injury, he is expected remain under center for the duration of the campaign. Although Pat Mahomes was selected to be the team's QB of the future, he'll likely have to wait a year or two, while being groomed behind Smith, to begin his tenure as the Chiefs' franchise QB. Smith is a free agent in 2019.

Alex Smith to remain Chiefs' starter in 2017

Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey reiterated to the media Thursday that quarterback Alex Smith will remain the team's starter in 2017.

Fantasy Impact

It appears that Smith will remain Kansas City's starting quarterback next season, as both general manager John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid reinforced in the early portion of the offseason. However, Smith's job is far from safe despite leading the Chiefs to the playoffs in three of the past four seasons. With passing numbers that are underwhelming -- he produced a 3,502-15-8 quarterback stat line in 2016 -- Smith could be on thin ice in Kansas City, especially with Nick Foles waiting in the wings for his shot at the starting job.
