Summary

Alex Smith will take the reins of the Chiefs offense once again in 2016. In his three seasons at the helm, Smith has brought consistency and durability to the table, and offered up some solid QB2 production. He won't carry your team to a fantasy title off of his production, but he also won't lose one for you if your top signal caller goes down for the count. Smith carries around the label of being a game manager, but he fulfills his duties very well and has been a solid fit in the Andy Reid offense. Quite simply, the Chiefs offense as currently constructed calls for balance via a strong running game that is complemented by a short passing game, with the occasional big passing play mixed in. He's developed a solid rapport with top target Jeremy Maclin, and the duo's productivity should only increase in their second year together. Travis Kelce is entrenched as the number two passing game target, while Jamaal Charles will look to return to form as a big threat out of the backfield after sustaining a season-ending ACL injury in 2015. Behind those big three, there's not too much to get excited about, but that could change as Chris Conley continues to develop. Smith also offers the upside of making things happen with the legs. He's not afraid to tuck it and run, and ran for a career high 498 yards last season. By this point in his career, we know what we're getting with Smith: solid - yet unspectacular - production. You could do much worse for your QB2 on draft day. (May 20)
