Chiefs 'expect bigger numbers' from QB Alex Smith

ESPN - [Full Article]

Chiefs beat writer Adam Teicher: The Chiefs will expect bigger numbers from Alex Smith. He threw for under 3,300 yards and 18 touchdowns last season and those stats aren’t enough for a quarterback who started 15 games. Don’t look for Smith to lead the league in passing, or to even come close. But it’s a huge disappointment if his numbers aren’t better than in 2014.

Fantasy Impact: 

Let's not forget that Smith was the #18 fantasy quarterback last season. He's a dirt-cheap quarterback option who could provide high-end QB2 numbers if he becomes a bit more aggressive. He’s dangerous as a runner, and given the addition of a bona fide receiver in Jeremy Maclin, the emergence of Travis Kelce, and the always-dangerous Jamaal Charles, Smith is an unexciting yet (usually) functional fantasy quarterback.
