The Chiefs bumped rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes up to the second string last week, but that’s as far as he’s going.
At least this year.
“It’s Alex Smith’s job. That’s what it is. There’s no gray area with that,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said when asked about the chances of Mahomes taking over this year, via Terez Paylor of he Kansas City Star.
Reid attempted to temporarily block out the light emanating from his bright young quarterback, saying there’s not a competition for starting quarterback role. The Chiefs traded a future first to get Mahomes with the 10th overall pick.

Week 3 at Los Angeles Chargers
As expected, Alex Smith came down last week after his Week 1 performance. He still played well, completing 21-of-28 passes, but from a fantasy perspective, his 251 yards with one score doesn't do a whole lot. He also added 21 yards on 4 carries.
He could have a better performance this week against a Chargers team that has allowed the fifth-most points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Smith has plenty of weapons around him to take advantage of poor defensive play.
Smith isn't a great option, but he's better than a lot of other quarterbacks this week. He should be viewed as a middle-of-the-pack option.
