Alex Smith went 20-for-31 passing for 231 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday night's game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Detroit Lions. Both of Smith's touchdown passes found Vernon Davis, the first coming in the first quarter and the second coming in the fourth.
Fantasy Impact: Smith may have found a favorite deep threat in Davis. Both touchdowns were from 21 and 23 yards out of the end zone. The Niners' emphasis on the running game means that Smith may never be an elite fantasy option in standard leagues. He proved Sunday that he can hold his own as a potential backup or QB2 in deeper leagues if need be, however.
