Most people say that 2017 was an outlier year for Smith, and while it's hard to disagree that it was better than the rest, he's been doing this for a while now. Since 2011, Smith has thrown 132 touchdowns compared to just 43 interceptions. In that period, there are just two quarterbacks who have a better TD:INT ratio than him: Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. You don't do that over a seven-year period if you're a mediocre quarterback. With Jay Gruden's history with Kirk Cousins, it's very possible that we're underestimating Smith's fantasy potential. If you're the type to grab two quarterbacks in a draft, Smith would make an excellent No. 2 who has top-10 upside.

Alex Smith signs a four-year contract extension with the Redskins

The Washington Redskins have agreed in principle to a four-year contract extension with Alex Smith.

Fantasy Impact

Smith will average 23.5 million dollars per year on his new deal and take home 70 million dollars in guaranteed money. The Redskins could never come to terms with a long term deal with Kirk Cousins after franchise tagging him for two consecutive seasons, The Redskins ultimately decided that Cousins' level of play did not match his asking price. Cousins will likely be seeking 30 million per year on the open market so the Redskins will be saving a significant amount of money per year. The Redskins do not have dynamic skill players like Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, and Kareem Hunt so Smith will likely struggle to replicate his career-best 2017 fantasy season in Washington.
