Alex Smith Fantasy Stats: Above-Average Day For 49ers QB

The 49ers beat the Redskins by kicking a lot of field goals in a 19-11 win. But Alex Smith was responsible for San Francisco's lone touchdown, and finished with 200 passing yards and a TD. In other words, not a terrible fantasy football outing from the 49ers quarterback.

You would think as the quarterback of a 6-1 team — the second-best record in the NFL — Alex Smith would have some pretty good stats. Heck, even kinda good. But they're not. He has 10 total touchdowns (9 passing, one rushing), and has thrown for 1,267 yards, an average of well under 200 a game. He's not a guy who will get you a lot of points, so hopefully, if you're forced to start him, it's because of a bye, not because of a poor decision.

On the plus side, he faced the Redskins in Week 9, who have been struggling in just about every facet of the game. On the downside, that could just mean the 49ers are running the ball almost exclusively in the second half.
