Summary

Smith returns for his fifth year behind center for the Kansas City Chiefs. Two hallmarks of his tenure in Kansas City have been consistency and durability. Smith will not light up the scoreboard, but you can rely on him to stay healthy and provide consistent output. He's an efficient passer that offers upside with his legs and despite missing Jeremy Maclin for half the season with injuries, the emergence of Tyreek Hill as a big-play threat helped the Chiefs diversify its passing game in 2016. Tight end Travis Kelce played to his potential, earning a Pro Bowl invitation while leading NFL tight ends with in receptions and receiving yards. A healthy Maclin, versatile and dangerous Hill, and Pro-Bowler Kelce gives Smith a trio of passing weapons to spread the field and pick defenses apart. In addition, Spencer Ware is statistically one of the best backs after the catch in the NFL. The nucleus is there for Smith to transcend his career average production as a fantasy QB2. (May 25)
