Alex Smith concussion: Returns to limited practice, offers little fantasy value in Week 11

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

One fantasy owner in San Francisco gives his buddy a high-five after Smith's return to practice. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith returned to practice on Thursday, getting in a limited session after leaving the 49ers Week 10 tie against the Rams with a concussion. Smith was 7-for-8 for 72 yards and a touchdown against St. Louis before being knocked out of the game and not returning.

Colin Kaepernick was 11-of-17 for 117 yards and 66 yards rushing in relief. It appears as though Smith will be able to return by Monday night to start against the Bears.

Fantasy Take: Smith has four games this season with multiple touchdown passes and was excellent against the Rams before being knocked out. Against Chicago's number one defense, he should not be expected to do so well for fantasy owners.

Look elsewhere.
