Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
The prototypical game manager, in fantasy football drafts Alex Smith is almost always drafted as one of the last QBs, embarrassingly close to the first PKs. He won't ever get you 40 fantasy points in a week, but he will consistently give you a respectable amount. While he will not start for most teams he is a decent QB2 who with his skills as a game manger, scores a reasonable amount of fantasy points each week and leads his team to victories much more often than not. He should be on fantasy benches this week, but if he is available in your league, think of grabbing him and stashing him for later.
Passsing: 204 Yards, 1 TD, 0 INT.
Rushing: 28 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
The addition of Jeremy Maclin didn't lead to a more pass-heavy Kansas City offense as some fantasy owners had hoped, but dink-and-dunk artist Smith still enjoyed one of the best seasons of his career. The 31-year-old Smith racked up a career high in passing yards and compiled his second-highest number of scoring strikes. However, Smith attempted only six more passes than he did two seasons ago to wrap up 2015 as the fantasy QB16. The Chiefs made the postseason by relying on the NFL's sixth-rated ground game and seventh-rated defense, so why would Kansas City bother switching to a pass-heavy attack? Smith will remain locked in as a game manager. Maclin and Travis Kelce return as his top two targets, and the team hopes lightning-fast Chris Conley can provide a needed deep threat. However, making big plays down the field just isn't Smith's thing, so don't expect much production from the Smith-to-Conley connection. The switch in offensive coordinators from Doug Pederson to the Brad Childress/Matt Nagy duo means very little since head coach Andy Reid will continue to call the plays. The risk-averse Smith remains a no-upside fantasy QB2 matchup-play option. In other words, he's a "break glass in case of emergency" fantasy starter.

Passing: 3000 Yards, 16 TD, 5 INT.
Rushing: 175 Yards, 1 TD.
