Chiefs QB Alex Smith tosses two touchdowns


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith tossed two scores Week 12 against the Raiders.

Smith completed 20 of 36 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns. He did not turn the ball over during the contest. Smith was his usual conservative self, averaging 6.5 yards per attempt. His longest pass of the day was a 30 yard touchdown to Jamaal Charles, but the ball actually traveled two or three yards past the line of scrimmage. Charles took it the rest of the way. Smith attempted to lead his team back with under two minutes to go, but gained just 24 passing yards on the final drive. 

He'll take on the Broncos Week 13. 


Chiefs QB Alex Smith doesn't do much Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith was limited Week 11 against the Seahawks.

Smith was effective during the contest, but didn't have a lot of opportunities to throw. He completed 11 of 16 attempts for 108 yards and no scores. Smith did not turn the ball over during the contest. Smith also had two rushing attempts, but lost 1 yard. The Chiefs were content to run Jamaal Charles during the contest, meaning Smith didn't have to do all that much.

He'll look for more Week 12 against the Raiders.

 


Alex Smith makes it four straight without a turnover


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith played his usual low-risk football Week 10 at Buffalo, completing 17 of 29 passes for 177 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. But he scored on an 8-yard run with 8:59 left to lift his team to a 17-13 victory.

Smith ran four times for 25 yards and notched his first rushing score of the year. This was his fourth straight game without a turnover.

Smith plays the Seahawks in Week 11.


Alex Smith his own worst enemy in Week 9


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2014) The Jets entered Week 9 having allowed the most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season, and for two quarters, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith looked like he'd put them in an even deeper hole, throwing for 131 yards and two touchdowns. But with the Chiefs leading 21-7 at halftime and the Jets failing to mount any sort of comeback, he played it as conservatively as possible thereafter, throwing for only 68 yards in the second half.

And that's why he'll never be a game-changer in Fantasy. When he's throwing well, the Chiefs usually do a good job of protecting the lead, allowing him to revert to a game-manager role. When he's not throwing well, that's all the more reason for him to keep throwing.

He's fine as a bye-week replacement, and with six quarterbacks on bye again, you may need him in Week 10. But his matchup at Buffalo is an iffy one. The Bills have allowed as many touchdown passes as they've recorded interceptions (12) this season.


Chiefs QB Alex Smith throws two TDs in Week 9 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw two first-half touchdowns Sunday, which proved to be the difference in a 24-10 win Week 9 vs. N.Y. Jets. Smith completed 21 of 31 passes for 199 yards and avoided turning the ball over in Sunday's win.

Smith got a lucky bounce on his first touchdown pass. His intended pass was deflected by a defender, but the ball somehow landed in the lap of tight end Anthony Fasano, who was on the ground at the 1-yard line. Fasano quickly got up and dove for the goal line. He was awarded a 2-yard touchdown, as Kansas City went up 14-0.

Smith's second touchdown was a 12-yard completion to Travis Kelce with 39 seconds left in the first half, which gave Kansas City a 21-7 lead.

Smith had his first multitouchdown game in four weeks and third of the season Sunday. It was his third straight game without an interception. The Chiefs are back in action Week 10 at Buffalo.


Chiefs to have their studs Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) The Chiefs should have all their studs Week 9 against the Jets.

Offensive starters Jamaal Charles, Alex Smith and Travis Kelce headline the long list of probable players for the contest. All three should play.

The team also listed Eric Berry, Anthony Fasano, Phillip Gaines, Cyrus Gray, Junior Hemingway, Mike McGlynn and Sean Smith as probable for the contest. Berry is listed with an ankle injury. 


Alex Smith expected to practice fully Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, who sprained his throwing shoulder Sunday, is scheduled to be a full practice participant Wednesday, coach Andy Reid told the Kansas City Star. Smith is on track to play without limitations Week 9 against the Jets.

Chiefs' Reid: QB Alex Smith (shoulder) expected to play Week 9


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Monday quarterback Alex Smith has a right shoulder sprain, which he suffered in the first half Sunday against the Rams. Though, Smith never missed a snap and finished out the 34-7 win.

Reid added he expects Smith to be OK and play Week 9 against the Jets. Smith was 14 of 15 for 111 yards in the first half Sunday. His final stat line was 24 of 28 for 226 yards and no touchdowns.


Alex Smith completes 86 percent of his passes in Week 8 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith didn't throw a touchdown Sunday against the Rams, but Kansas City was still able to rally from an early deficit for a 34-7 win Week 8. Smith was extremely efficient, however, completing 24 of 28 passes for 226 yards. He also rushed for 24 yards on four carries.

Smith, who also lost a fumble, had just one incompletion in the first half, as he completed 14 of 15 passes for 111 yards. Despite no touchdowns, Smith finished with a 100.3 passer rating. Sunday was the second time this season Smith failed to throw for a touchdown.

The Chiefs are back in action Week 9 vs. N.Y. Jets.


Waiver wire thin for quarterbacks this week


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With an eye on Week 8 and beyond, Jamey Eisenberg tabbed his top quarterbacks on the waiver wire Tuesday, headlined by the Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill, who is owned in just 43 percent of CBSSports.com leagues at this point.

Additionally, Jamey eyes a few key stashes who might be worth your time if you are having trouble at the position or just have a roster spot to fill. Specifically, recovering Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (36 percent) and Johnny Manziel (13 percent), the Browns' backup, could be worth a flier.

Among quarterbacks with a lower ceiling who nonetheless have jobs locked down, Kyle Orton of the Bills (12 percent) and Alex Smith of the Chiefs (59 percent) have some value, with matchups against the Jets and Rams, respectively, for Week 8. 


Alex Smith throws one touchdown in Chiefs' Week 7 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) 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
(10/8/2014) 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
(10/5/2014) 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
(9/30/2014) 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
(9/30/2014) 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 nearly flawless on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith dissected the Patriots for 248 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in a 41-14 home rout Monday. Smith completed 20 of 26 throws (77 percent) and added 8 yards on four carries.

In his last two Monday night games, Smith is 38 of 45 for 480 yards and six touchdowns with no interceptions.

Smith threw a pair of short touchowns to running back Jamaal Charles and also found tight end Travis Kelce for a 2-yard score. Smith has been on fire the past two weeks, accounting for six touchdowns. He'll visit the 49ers on Sunday.


Alex Smith throws three touchdowns in comfortable win over Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith found the end zone three times in a Week 3 win over the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday.

Smith hooked up with Travis Kelce for a 20-yards score in the second quarter. In the second half, he found Joe McKnight for scored of 11 and 4 yards. Smith did just enough to manage the game for the Chiefs, completing 19 of 25 passes for 186 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions in a 34-15 victory.

Through three weeks, Smith has compiled 643 passing yards to go along with a 4-to-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He will look to build off this performance heading into a Week 5 Monday night matchup at home against New England.


Alex Smith can't find the end zone Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith couldn't find the end zone Week 2 against the Broncos.

Smith completed 26 of 42 passes for 255 yards. He averaged just 6.1 yards per attempt. As a result, running back Knile Davis led the team with six receptions. Smith did attempt to lead a game-winning drive, even getting his team down to the 2 yard line. With the game on the line, Smith couldn't complete a fourth down pass. The ball was tipped at the line and deflected, ending the comeback attempt. Smith also had 42 rushing yards.

Smith will take on the Dolphins Week 3. 


Alex Smith throws three interceptions in Week 1 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw all of seven interceptions in 508 pass attempts in 2013. It took him just one game in 2014 to nearly total half that many interceptions.

Smith was picked off three times Sunday against the Titans, as the Chiefs were beat 26-10 at home. Smith, who was missing top receiver Dwayne Bowe due to a suspension, completed 19 of 35 passes for one touchdown. He also rushed for a team-high 36 yards on six carries.

Smith's lone touchdown of the afternoon came late in the game, as Tennessee was already leading 23-3. Smith connected with tight end Anthony Fasano for a 5-yard touchdown with 10:09 left in the game.

The Chiefs hit the road for a Week 2 showdown with AFC West foe Denver.


Alex Smith aims for second straight win vs. Titans


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Quarterback Alex Smith led Kansas City to a 26-17 win Week 5 at Tennessee last season and looks to lead the Chiefs to another win against the Titans this season, as the two teams meet for a rematch Week 1.

Smith passed for a career-high 3,313 yards and 23 touchdowns last season. Though, none of those passing touchdowns came in the win against Tennessee. It was a disappointing performance from a Fantasy perspective, but not many quarterbacks had standout performances against Tennessee last season.

Quarterbacks averaged just 14.3 Fantasy points per week against Tennessee, which was the third-lowest average. Only three quarterbacks threw for multiple touchdowns. QBs also averaged 239.9 passing yards per game against the Titans.

Smith had at least 20 Fantasy points in eight games last season, including three of the first four. But he had some pretty bad weeks too, finishing with less than 10 Fantasy points four times. Smith is more of a backup Fantasy quarterback and should be treated as a No. 2 option for Week 1.


Chiefs, Alex Smith agree to four-year extension


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) With just a week before the start of the regular season, the Chiefs and quarterback Alex Smith agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $68 million, with $45 million guaranteed, according to the Kansas City Star on Sunday.

Smith, 30, was acquired from San Francisco in a March 2013 trade. He threw for a career-high 3,313 yards and 23 touchdowns, leading his team to an 11-5 campaign in 2013.


Alex Smith intercepted twice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Playing without No. 1 receiver Dwayne Bowe and star running back Jamaal Charles, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith struggled Saturday against the Vikings. Smith completed 14 of 24 passes for 140 yards and no touchdowns with two interceptions.

Smith, who ran three times for 21 yards, has accounted for three turnovers and zero scores this preseason.


Chiefs yearn to expand horizons of Alex Smith in 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Andy Reid and Chiefs quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy are working with quarterback Alex Smith to throw deeper balls more consistently this season. That word came from the start of training camp, according to ESPN.

"Let's let the ball rip a little bit," Nagy told Smith. "It's practice. Let's see what we can get away with and what we can't get away with so when the games come we know where we're at."

The Chiefs are seeking to make more big plays than they did a year ago. They believe that Smith, who threw just seven interceptions in 2013, can add the long ball without sacrificing accuracy or adding picks.

"We're a little more aggressive right now in training camp with some downfield throws as far as his decision making," Nagy added. "We're telling him to push the ball. You may see an interception here or there that he may not necessarily make in a game but we're telling him to do that, trust it and just see what happens. Now, when we get to a game, let's make the right decision."

A successful vertical passing game could create space to make explosive featured back Jamaal Charles even more of a threat in 2014.


Alex Smith on pay-as-you-go deal: No thanks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith told USA Today that he's not interested in a contract extension structured like the one the Bengals just gave Andy Dalton. That six-year extension functions more like a two-year contract, as it's essentially pay-as-you-go after Year 2.

"I want to get something that's right that I'm going to play out, absolutely, and that's definitely a focus of mine," he said.

Smith continues to hope the sides can work out an extension before the season. He's scheduled to make $7.5 million this season, the final year of his deal.


Alex Smith does little in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith did not make much of an impact during Thursday's preseason opener against the Bengals.

Smith stayed in the game with the first-team offense for three drives and loss a fumble after getting sacked in the second series of the game. He completed 3 of 5 passes for 19 yards, averaging 3.8 yards per attempt.

The Chiefs will travel to Carolina to face the Panthers on Aug. 17.
