  • No QB Controversy in KC, Alex Smith Will Be the Starter This Year

    Despite the pleas from Kansas City Chiefs fans to start rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes in Week 1, head coach Andy Reid had no problem quickly putting to rest the notion that Mahomes would get the nod over returning starter Alex Smith. Mahomes has been fun to watch this preseason, throwing three touchdowns through two games, and showing great mobility to scramble and keep plays alive. He is undoubtedly the future quarterback of this franchise, but regarding this season Reid said very matter-of-factly, "Its Alex's job. That's what it is. There's no gray area with that." This endorsement solidifies the team's faith in Smith, who has been using this offseason and preseason to develop better chemistry with his top weapons. He could put up some very solid fantasy weeks, though it could be difficult to tell which ones those will be. He may not be the flashiest pick, but he is certainly worth rostering as a second quarterback in 2QB and superflex leagues, or for quarterback depth in standard scoring formats.

  • Alex Smith and Patrick Mahomes Both Shine in Chiefs Preseason Win

    Earlier this week, rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes was promoted to the Kansas City Chiefs primary backup spot, and he responded well in Saturday's preseason game finishing with two touchdown passes and 88 yards on 10-for-14 passing. He also added 29 yards on three scrambles, and is showing that he will be a versatile threat in the Chiefs offense whenever his time does come. The buzz amongst the Chiefs' fan base this past week played with the idea of starter Alex Smith being traded to the Jaguars to improve their QB situation, suggesting that Mahomes is ready to lead this team right away this season. While the chances of that happening are next to none, the push that Mahomes' early progress has been putting on the QB position is obvious, as Smith has reportedly been having his best Chiefs camp to date. Smith had a good night himself on Saturday, completing 8-of-9 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown pass, engineering two scoring drives for the first team offense. Smith is the starter, but Mahomes is waiting in the wings, and is certainly making a strong claim for a late round pick in dynasty drafts this year.

  • Alex Smith Sticking with the Deep Ball

    After a rough start to Monday's practice session, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith began connecting with his receivers in the team's 7-on-7 period. He found wide receiver Tyreek Hill in the corner for a score, and was repeatedly taking shots down the field to several different receivers. The connection that Smith and Hill have shared this preseason has been well-documented, but WR Chris Conley has also been having a great camp and has been the recipient of several long passes from Smith as well. Although head coach Andy Reid has historically allowed Alex Smith to manage the game with minimal deep shots, all indications through camp show the Chiefs' offense becoming more dynamic. This should be huge for not only both Hill and Conley, but also for tight end Travis Kelce, who has been very active in the past two practices since his return from injury. Kelce caught a few deep balls himself in practice on Monday, and was heavily targeted in the red zone, scoring on a touchdown reception. If the Chiefs commit to this variation in their offense, this receiving group along with a talented backfield should benefit and be able to produce consistent fantasy value.
