Summary

Veteran signal caller Alex Smith returns for his third season as Chiefs starter. He is an accurate passer with good decision making ability but is considered a game manager with limited downfield ability. Smith has the mobility to pick up some yardage on the ground when the situation calls for it and has been durable throughout his time with the Chiefs. If the OL improves play from last year as expected, Smith will have plenty of time in the pocket to show off his accuracy and decision making ability. The WR position was bereft of talent last season but the team has upgraded the position through free agency and the draft, while RB and TE will continue to be strengths of the team. Expect Smith to be a solid QB2 with some upside and the potential to outperform his draft ranking. (August 31)

Chiefs | Alex Smith carves up Titans (Fri Aug 28, 11:56 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith went 16 of 18 passing for 171 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-10 win over the Tennessee Titans in the preseason Friday, Aug. 28.

Our View: It's nice to see Smith actually find the end zone, one going to a wide receiver! If that sounds insignificant, it's not. This is a team who didn't throw a touchdown to a wide receiver all of 2014. So already we've got improvement. Not enough to put him on your bench as anything more than emergency depth, as Smith remains a QB3 for us.
