Over four seasons with the Chiefs, Smith has a 41-20 record pushing his career record to 79-56-1. His completion rate (64.5) has been strong with Kansas City and has shown improvement in yards per pass attempt in 2015 (7.4) and 2016 (7.2). Over his last 2,594 throws, Smith has only been picked off 38 times (1.46 percent). In every season in the NFL, he's fallen well below the league average in pass attempts per game (29.1 in his career and 31.7 with the Chiefs). In 2016, Smith set a career high in passing yards (3,502) and completions (328) while his passing TDs (15) were well below the league average. Only once in his career has Smith thrown for over 20 TDs. In 2015, he added value on the ground (84/498/2) which raised his floor. Even with five rushing TDs last season, Alex had a sharp decline in his rushing opportunity (48/134). This year, he may have his last swing as the starting QB now that Kansas City drafted Patrick Mahomes in the first round. Smith's a very good game manager who minimizes mistakes. He has a developing TE with questionable talent at wide receiver. A Fantasy owner can expect fewer than 4,000 combined yards with below league average TDs. His ticket will come in a couple of times per year, but he's tough to time.
