Alex Smith – QB
Projection: 25/30 for 250+ yards and 2 TD; 4 rushes for 10+ yards and 1 TD
While Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith has not been the best Fantasy Football option this year, I’m telling you to put him in this week. Smith is coming off of a very strong performance, and has played well in the past against San Diego. With a chance at winning the division on the line, I expect Smith to be at the top of his game this week.
363 yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and 1 rushing touchdown. That’s what Alex Smith did to the Chargers the last time these two teams met. With the emergence of Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce playing up to his potential, I think this game could get out of hand. The Chargers have no answer for the Chiefs top two weapons, and Smith should be able to exploit that.
Alex Smith is probably never going to be a premier option in Fantasy Football. However, he can be a very valuable backup to your fantasy team. In some cases, he can be a good starter as well, depending on the match ups. As a DFS play this week, I think Smith can provide you with a very good option at a quality price tag.
