Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith showed that even in defeat, he's still a steady starter who isn't exactly prone to throwing interceptions. Smith completed just 21 of 45 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday Night Football, but he didn't throw any picks despite the Broncos winning handily, 27-17.
Smith's season totals are decent as well. He's completed 209 of 360 passes for 2,149 yards with 11 touchdowns and four interceptions. But Smith's day on Sunday was also bolstered by his ability running the ball. He kept it five times and managed to run for 52 yards, with a per-carry average of 10.4 yards.
He did throw a lot of incompletions, and that may have prevented the Chiefs from winning in the end, but it was still a solid performance from a quarterback who doesn't turn the ball over all that much. He kept the Chiefs in the game, at the very least.
Fantasy Impact: Smith hasn't been the most productive fantasy quarterback this season, but in deep 2-QB leagues, it's hard to argue against a guy who doesn't really throw interceptions. If you went with him on Sunday, you were treated to a very solid game, which should be the case every week going forward.
