Alex Smith throws one touchdown in Chiefs' Week 7 win
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/19/14) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith completed 19 of his 28 passes for 221 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions Sunday, adding 29 yards on six carries in his team's 23-20 win over the Chargers in Week 7.
Smith did a nice job managing the game and put his team into the lead early in the fourth quarter with an 11-yard touchdown on a screen to Anthony Sherman. The Chargers were able to even the score with less than two minutes remaining, but Smith led his team on a drive down to the San Diego 30-yard line to set up a game-winning field goal from Cario Santos. Smith and the Chiefs will look to build off the big win when they face the Rams in Week 8.
Alex Smith loses Week 5 touchdown after scoring change
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/8/14) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith lost a touchdown pass in Week 5 due to a scoring change.
Smith was originally credited with a 17-yard touchdown pass to rookie running back De'Anthony Thomas, but the play has been changed to a run. While Thomas keeps his first career touchdown, the scoring change gives Smith just 158 yards and one touchdown, along with one interception, in the team's Week 5 loss to the 49ers.
Alex Smith fades in loss to former team
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(10/5/14) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith started strong against his former team, the 49ers, completing 12 of 19 throws for 117 yards and a touchdown in the first half. But things unraveled for Smith after halftime.|
With a chance to lead a game-winning touchdown drive, Smith overthrew tight end Anthony Fasano and was picked off by Perrish Cox with two minutes left. Smith finished 17 of 31 for 175 yards and two touchdowns with the interception. He added a 6-yard run.
Smith has thrown nine touchdowns against four interceptions entering the team's Week 6 bye.
Which QB's should you target on waivers?
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(9/30/14) With just two teams on bye and few teams dealing with serious injuries at the position, there aren't many needs to fill at quarterback this week. Still, Jamey Eisenberg's Week 5 Waiver-Wire column highlights a handful of names you might want to target before waivers run Wednesday morning.
Giants QB Eli Manning headlines the list of add-worthy quarterbacks, after he lit up Washington for five touchdowns last week. He was featured on the waiver-wire column last week as well. Carson Palmer (shoulder) of the Cardinals is also on the list, as is Joe Flacco of the Ravens, Alex Smith of the Chiefs, Blake Bortles of the Jaguars and Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) of the Vikings to round out the top-5.
Kirk Cousins, Jake Locker and Geno Smith are mentioned as potentially droppable options, if you need a roster spot.
Alex Smith's production linked to Jamaal Charles'
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(9/30/14) Even with star running back Jamaal Charles on the mend (though he looked good in his return Monday night), the Chiefs offense has picked it up the last two weeks with back-to-back 30-point outbursts -- and surprisingly, against two defenses that currently rank in the top 10, Miami and New England.
Quarterback Alex Smith has been either one of the beneficiaries or one the facilitators of the turnaround, throwing three touchdown passes in back-to-back games. It's reminiscent of last season, when he had nine games with multiple touchdown passes in leading the Chiefs to an 11-5 record. Of course, he had zero touchdown passes in the other seven games.
Back in the fold, Charles figures to take the leading role in the Chiefs offense and did so in Week 4, scoring three of their five touchdowns. It's just that two happened to come through the air, benefiting Smith as well.
That's part of Charles' game, catching the ball, so it's not the last time we'll see Smith benefit from his ability. But you'd think more often than not, his scores will come on the ground.
It all adds up to Smith being little more than a bye-week replacement in Fantasy. He'll have some big games like the last two weeks just because the Chiefs have the ability to score, but the presence of Charles will make him boom-or-bust every time out.
|Alex Smith is never going to be mistaken for Peyton Manning, but his first year with coach Andy Reid in Kansas City was productive in 2013. Smith passed for 3,313 yards, 23 touchdowns and seven interceptions on 61 percent completions, and he added 431 rushing yards and one touchdown. Smith finished as the No. 14 Fantasy quarterback in standard leagues, but he showed plenty of promise with eight games with at least 20 Fantasy points, including three of his first four and four of his last five. You're not going to draft Smith as your No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, but he is a solid backup option in all leagues. Smith is worth drafting with a late-round pick, and if he starts off playing well like he did last season then consider him a potential starter if your No. 1 option struggles.
