2014 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Jun-29-2014 by Jeb Gorham
Smith could be considered a sleeper given his current QB rankings. He had his best season ever in 2013 with over 3,300 passing yards and nearly 500 rushing yards. His 23 passing touchdowns and only seven interceptions last season were enough to make him the occasional matchup start or bye week replacement. Smith has Charles to lead the rushing attack and it looks like his receiving corps is taking shape. Bowe and Avery provide solid targets. As the 24th ranked QB, Smith should be easier to draft this season if you are looking for a QB who can perform at a near QB1 level. The offense will revolve around the run and short/intermediate passes. Since Smith won't be asked to truly carry the offense, his ceiling is limited as a QB2 for fantasy owners.
Alex Smith lacerated his spleen late last season. As you can imagine a lacerated spleen is a very serious issue. Expectations always were that he'd be good to go buy the time offseason workouts came around. Still, it's good to see he's cleared and ready to roll.Fantasy Analysis:
Smith should see a boost in fantasy value this season with Jeremy Maclin now on the roster. He is infinitely better than Dwayne Bowe. Maclin and Travis Kelce are two very good options. Another WR in the draft wouldn't hurt either.
