2016 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs
Over the last five seasons with San Francisco and Kansas City, Smith has a 49-21-1 record as he's developed into a winning game manager. His legs have become more relevant in the Chiefs' offense (209/1183/4) while averaging 5.7 yards per rush. He threw for a career-high 3486 yards last year while matching his success in 2014 in his completion rate (65.3). His most impressive stat is his few interceptions (30) over the last five years (2105 pass attempts – 1.4 percent Int rate). His yards per pass attempts are trending upward (2013 – 6.5, 2014 – 7.0, and 2015 – 7.4) leading to competitive yards when his rushing yards are added into the equation. In his ten-year career in the NFL, Alex has yet to deliver a season with at least league average success in TDs. In 2015, he had one 300 yard passing game and three games with three combined TDs. His season ended with five straight games with fewer than 200 yards passing not including a sixth straight game in the first round of the playoffs. In the Fantasy market, Smith is a boring option with occasional value if the game score gets out of line. His upside can only go as far as his receiving corps, which included two players (Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce). At best, Alex has a chance at 4000 combined yards with league average TDs making him a weak QB2.
