Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Chiefs, whose playoff seeding is set, aren't taking any chances Sunday, with RB Jamaal Charles also resting. Chase Daniel is slated to start at QB in Smith's place.
With the Chiefs' playoff seeding locked in, Smith is a candidate to be pulled from Sunday's season finale against the Chargers early on, ESPN.com reports.

It's also possible that Smith won't even play, though coach Andy Reid has yet to commit to how he plans to use his starters in Week 17. At this stage, though, don't be surprised if backup Chase Daniel sees more time on the field Sunday than Smith.
Smith completed 16-of-29 passes for 153 yards and two interceptions Sunday against the Colts. He also ran six times for 47 yards, but fumbled the ball twice, losing one of them.

Smith looked great early, as Kansas City jumped out to a 21-7 lead. After the Broncos rallied, Smith started to make plays again, nearly tying the game in the final couple of minutes of the fourth quarter. Overall, Smith played well, and should have posted bigger numbers, if not for a series of drops, most notably by Donnie Avery. The Chiefs have been awful defensively lately, forcing Smith to air it out more, and making him a sneaky play down the stretch.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

There might not be a starting quarterback in the league with a lower ceiling than Smith, as his “career year” in 2011 consisted of throwing for just 3,144 yards (7.1 YPA) and 17 touchdowns. The lack of turnovers (five interceptions, two lost fumbles) and solid rushing numbers (179 yards and two touchdowns) helped out, but it seems safe to say that Smith is no more than a game manager. He does, however, have a very stable floor. He’ll have some more help in 2012, too, as the 49ers added three speedy upgrades at receiver in the form of first-round pick A.J. Jenkins and free-agents Mario Manningham and Randy Moss.

2011

After a brief free agency, Smith agreed to return to San Francisco with a one-year contract with the 49ers. Coach Jim Harbaugh has talked him up all offseason, and second-round pick Colin Kaepernick isn’t a great fit as a starter for this year. If Smith does hold on to the starting spot in San Francisco, it’s probably safe to expect more of the same – below average numbers and too much inconsistency. Harbaugh figures to install a run-heavy offense, so Smith’s potential is limited even if he improves.

2010

Smith last year threw for about 200 yards per game. The TD production was pretty solid in his 11 starts — 18 scoring strikes Smith had a reputation as runner but produced just 57 yards in those starts last year with no scores. The supporting cast seems good. Vernon Davis is the NFC’s Antonio Gates and Michael Crabtree is an ascending talent. A competent QB in SF would definitely be worthy of at least solid backup consideration and probably be a borderline starter, but Smith has never lived up to his selection as the top overall pick in 2005.

2009

Smith appears to have fully recovered from the shoulder fracture he suffered last September, and his improved health has certainly been reflected in his off-season performance thus far. Smith has come on a lot stronger than expected, outperforming teammate Shaun Hill in the 49ers' OTA practices. While coach Mike Singletary considers the competition between Hill and Smith to be even at this point, Smith is still considered somewhat of a longshot to win the starting quarterback job. The competition will linger into exhibition play though, so Smith could conceivably beat out Hill for the starting job if he continues to outplay him through the exhibition schedule. If J.T. O'Sullivan could do it in 2008 then anything is possible. Either way, don't expect any sizable contributions from Smith in the fantasy realm this season.

2008

Mike Martz offers hope for the owners of Niners QBs. But Alex Smith seems like an empty vessel. Look at the numbers: Hill had five TDs in 80 attempts with a 101 QB rating. Sure, the YPA was a pedestrian 6.3, suggesting the TDs were a fluke. And he fumbled three times on four sacks, losing two. The sample size is also miniscule. But Smith had two TD passes in 193 attempts, posted a pathetic 4.7 YPA and has been backsliding since September of 2006. Yes, Martz is his fourth offensive coordinator in four years, but Smith's the primary reason those predecessors got canned. The major surgery to his throwing shoulder is another issue, as is his public feud with his head coach. Smith's leash is two games, max, and might be as short as two quarters. The career progressions of Smith and Hill are a perfect illustration of how flummoxed NFL decision makers are when it comes to scouting and developing QBs. Hill wasn't even drafted and got some attention only after playing well in NFL Europe, which no longer even exists. He came to the Niners by way of the Vikings and only got a chance to start a game when all the other options were injured. Now, he has a three-year deal and a serious chance to start over a No. 1 overall pick who plays like an undrafted free agent. Whoever emerges in August should be a late-round pocket pick as a third QB because of Martz, who has made a career of turning other people’s castoffs into fantasy value and sometimes even fantasy gold.

2007

Just when we thought he was turning the corner, he took a wrong turn right into Palookaville. His QB rating in the second half of 2006 was less than 70, which rightfully gets QBs benched nowadays. It was about 80 in the first half and actually 89 in September, when the Niners really focused on limiting any chance for him to make mistakes. The Niners seem really hesitant to kick Smith out of the nest and see if he can fly. Maybe they know something. The Niners are also not the Niners anymore, meaning they’ve deemphasized the pass and want to play power, running football. That’s quite sad, really. And the exact opposite of what every team should strive to do even if they don’t have all those Walsh/Montana/Young Super Bowl trophies in the lobby. But when your QB averages 5.9 YPA in the first half, and your backs average 5.4 yards per carry, you can’t really argue with play-calling splits favoring the run. The receiving corps needs a boost, and the Seahawks could barely give Darrell Jackson away, which leads us to believe that his knee problems are chronic.

2006

Any former No. 1 pick is draftable when he’s a certain starter. But there is no evidence that Smith will reward the faith the Niners showed. Last year, it was a house of horrors for Smith: 0 QB rating on 20 attempts late/close, a 4.2 YPA on first down and a 32 QB rating on 27 attempts of 11-to-20 yards. You can grab guys out of the stands at halftime and have them put numbers up like that. You want something more than draft order to hang your hat on in the final rounds? How about Norv Turner, who was uncharacteristically aggressive calling passes on a terrible Raiders team last year. Oakland was third in percentage of passes overall and on first down and first in passing percentage in the red zone. Turner is a veteran coordinator who will be given free reign to call plays by second-year head coach Mike Nolan, and while the weapons at his disposal are slowly improving, the growing pains will likely continue for Smith this season.

2005

We think Rattay, health permitting, has a good chance to hold off Alex Smith in training camp and start, though it’s only a matter of time before Smith takes over. Rattay is also recovering from a torn tendon at the bottom of his right foot, but expects to be ready for training camp. Even if Rattay were to keep the job all season (which is unlikely, both because of Smith’s presence and Rattay’s own durability issues), we don’t see much upside here given Rattay’s modest arm strength, lack of scrambling ability and below-average receiving corps.
