2015 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
Smith is a solid game manager with some upside with better weapons at the WR position. Last year, he had the worst WR corps in the league and one of the weakest pass-blocking lines in the NFL. Alex was sacked 49 times with no TDs to a WR all season. Somehow he completed a career high 65.3 percent of his passes (full season). Over his last three games of the year, Smith threw for 901 yards with three TDs. He only had two games with three TDs in 2014. He's been sacked 39 times or more in three of his last four years. Alex has never passed for more than 3,400 yards in any season with his career-high in passing TDs being 23 in 2013. Over the last two years with Kansas City he has rushed for 785 yards with two TDs. His offensive line will still have weakness and his WR corps gets an uptick with Maclin added. Smith is a boring, low upside QB who plays for a team that prefers to run the ball, which is more of a result of below-par WRs. Alex now has three playmakers (Charles, Macklin, and Kelce). Smith only has matchup value in 2015 as a backup QB.
