Alex Smith to the Texans?

The Houston Texans could pursue Alex Smith if it becomes clear Deshaun Watson won't be with the team, according to Tom Pelissero. Smith and Texans Head Coach David Culley worked together for four years while both were a part of the Kansas City Chiefs organization.

Fantasy Impact

Smith was 5-1 as a starter last season. He totaled a 66.7% completion percentage, 1,582 passing yards, a 6:8 touchdown-to-interception ratio, and a 78.5 quarterback rating. The Texans signed Tyrod Taylor earlier this off-season, as well. It's unknown if Smith would start outright or if he'd compete with Taylor.

Alex Smith officially released by Washington Football Team

The Washington Football Team officially released QB Alex Smith on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

This has been expected since the beginning of the week, but it's now official. The move saves WFT $14.9 million against the cap. The reigning Comeback Player of the Year will be a free agent and is free to sign with any team. So far the Bears have been mentioned as a possible landing spot.

Alex Smith could be an option for Bears, per Rapoport

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that former Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith reportedly could be an option for Bears in 2021.

Fantasy Impact

When Smith quarterbacked the Washington Football Team in 2020, he led the team to a 5-1 record while throwing for 1582 yards and six touchdowns. With Mitch Trubisky's impending free agency on the horizon for the Bears, the veteran QB makes a lot of sense. Smith's style of play fits well for the Bears in their read and react, RPO style offense.

Alex Smith and Washington expected to part ways

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that the Washington Football Team is expected to part ways with QB Alex Smith.

Fantasy Impact

Smith has two years remaining in his four-year, $94 million contract and is expected to be released by Washington. The AP Comeback Player of the Year is a free agent for the time ever and at 36 years old still wants play in the NFL. He threw for 1,582 yards and a 6:8 TD:INT ratio across eight games for Washington in 2020. Smith will look to latch onto another team during the offseason if he continues his NFL career.

Alex Smith could return as starter for Washington in 2021

Washington Football Team QB Alex Smith is reportedly considering a return to the team in 2021 and could possibly remain the starter, as reported by John Keim of ESPN.

Fantasy Impact

Smith impressed all fans with his comeback season in Washington after a frightening leg injury nearly cost him his life back in 2018. The veteran quarterback flashed his throwing ability throughout 2020 but was hampered by several calf-related injuries that sidelined him, likely costing the franchise a couple wins due to the inexperienced play of the young quarterback room backing up Smith. With the 2021 offseason already underway for most teams, Washington head coach Ron Rivera stated that "bringing the veteran back as the starter remains a possibility" if the organization is unable to find an upgrade at quarterback in the draft or free agency. Upgrades on the offensive line and wideout positions are necessary if the team wants to be a serious title contender in 2021.
