Smith has never been able to shake the "game manager" label, but he deserves plenty of credit for what he has done on the field over the past three seasons. His first year with the Chiefs has mirrored his recent success with the 49ers, as the eight-year veteran has sustained drives, minimized mistakes and even become a viable week-to-week fantasy football option.
Fantasy Spin: This week, the Chiefs have another favorable matchup that ought to be won without asking Smith to do too much. The Oakland Raiders are next on the docket, and they present Smith with a high ceiling after allowing the 10th-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season.
However, Smith's worst game of the season in terms of fantasy points came when he faced the Raiders at home on Oct. 13. Smith was greeted by a prepared Raiders defense that held him to 128 passing yards and zero touchdowns while completing just 14-of-31 passes during a 24-7 victory. Despite that, Smith remains a low-end QB1 for Week 15 and presents decent upside with such a plus matchup. Owners who relied on Josh McCown or Aaron Rodgers could do worse than Smith, who can provide enough points to keep his owners competitive in a given week.
