Alex Smith has 'hardly looked downfield'

Kansas City Star - [Full Article]

Will Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith find Dwayne Bowe? The Chiefs have had Smith play it safe in the first two preseason games, and he’s hardly looked downfield. Bowe will command double coverage until someone, be it Donnie Avery, Devon Wylie or newly acquired A.J. Jenkins proves he can get open as the second receiver and stretch the defense. But not to have targeted Bowe yet in preseason doesn’t make a lot of sense.

Fantasy Impact:
While it would be nice to see Smith and Bowe hooking up with regularity, it is not terribly alarming that Smith hasn't targeted Bowe through two preseason games. Bowe is by far the team's best receiving option so the duo should get on track soon.

The Sporting News - [Full Article]

The Chiefs aren’t getting what they need from Dexter McCluster as their slot receiver.

McCluster has twice deflected an easily catchable pass, leading to an interception that was returned for a touchdown. In another instance, McCluster fumbled without being hit and the opponent recovered, setting up a touchdown.

The Chiefs might be able to overlook some of these errors if McCluster delivered some big plays along with them, but he hasn’t. McCluster is small enough that he isn’t much of a target downfield, and he hasn’t been as much of a matchup problem for opposing defenses as the Chiefs had hoped on short and intermediate routes.

The Chiefs drafted Devon Wylie this year in hopes he could provide some job competition for McCluster. But Wylie has been plagued with one nagging injury after another so that competition never materialized.
