Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Alex Smith is coming off his worst game of the season against a tough Steelers' pass defense and it was still for 15 fantasy points. He should eclipse that this week against a much easier defense in the Raiders, so make sure to start him. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was only a matter of time before the lack of playmakers on the offense showed up with Alex Smith. It's not really his fault, but if opponents take Travis Kelce out of the game, he's going to struggle to find other reliable options - it's the reason he targeted running backs on seven of his 34 attempts last week. Fortunately, the Raiders haven't been able to generate much of a pass rush this year, which is huge because Smith has been under duress this year as the fourth-most pressured quarterback. They also struggle to defend tight ends, which is where we know Smith wants to go. The Raiders look solid on paper against quarterbacks, but the collection they've played isn't what I'd call great. Smith should be able to produce solid QB2 numbers in this game.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Oakland is 13th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Smith catches a big break with WR Tyreek Hill likely playing this week. Smith is a QB2 with his best deep threat able to play.
