Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw for 294 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 12 loss to the San Diego Chargers. Smith threw one interception and was sacked three times. Smith threw downfield more than he typically does and threw a 32 yards touchdown pass to Donnie Avery. He also averaged 7.7 yards per pass. On the year, Smith has thrown for 2443 yards, 14 touchdowns and five interceptions.
Fantasy impact: The Chiefs defense may be without Tamba Hali and Justin Houston for a while so Smith may need to produce more on offense for the Chiefs to stand a shot. The Chiefs definitely did open up their offense after both their pass rushers went down to injuries. Smith isn't a top fantasy start but he is a decent option in deep leagues or as a short term replacement. The Chiefs will face the Denver Broncos in Week 13. The Broncos are giving up the ninth most fantasy points to quarterbacks.
