Fantasy Football: Can Alex Smith Win You Your Fantasy Football League?

It is all about matchups in fantasy football. Yes, you can go with the stars, and yes, nine times out of ten this will work out. However, if you watched the NFL in Week 14, then you know the weather can also hurt your stars’ fantasy output.

The Kansas City Chiefs are going to be battling for the division and a first round bye for the rest of the regular season. That means every game that the Chiefs play in will be important. Because of this, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith will be called upon to come up with some big plays. If you are a fantasy manager, you should greatly consider playing Smith for the rest of your fantasy season.

As I stated before, it is all about the matchups. In the last two weeks of the fantasy football season, the Chiefs take on the Oakland Raiders and the Indianapolis Colts. These are matchups that owners should be licking their chops over. The Raiders got dismantled by struggling quarterback Geno Smith in Week 14. The Colts’ passing defense has struggled all season, and the Chiefs are taking them on in all leagues championship game week.

You should also consider starting Smith because he has proven over the last three seasons that he is here to play and win. Smith has been one of the most accurate and consistent quarterbacks over those years. Smith will not throw many costly interceptions for your team, and will even take off and run to get you additional points.

For the people that own players like Peyton Manning, Drew Brees or Cam Newton, you probably won’t even think about Smith, and I would not blame you. However, if you own guys like Eli Manning, Robert Griffin III or Case Keenum, then I would seriously think about adding and starting Smith the rest of the way. Trust me, you will not regret doing this!
