The Kansas City Star reports that the Chiefs have reached an agreement to trade QB Alex Smith to Washington for a 2018 third-round pick and CB Kendall Fuller. Washington reportedly also plans to sign Smith to a 4-year, $94 million extension that will include $71 million in guarantees. The move can't become official until the new league year begins in March. Everyone expected Smith to move on from Kansas City this offseason, but this is a surprising development given Washington's reluctance to invest long-term in Kirk Cousins. In addition to setting off the Patrick Mahomes era in Kansas City, the deal obviously also signals Cousins' entry into free agency. We'll see how all of these offenses -- which also include various impending free agencies at other positions -- settle out before projecting too much. Smith should be landing in a nice spot, though, with a HC who helped turn Cousins into a big-time fantasy factor over the past 3 years and emerging young talents Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson at WR. Smith will turn 34 in May.

Chiefs QB Alex Smith played a nearly flawless 1st half against the Raiders on Thursday night, completing 11 of 16 passes for 203 yards. The highlight was a perfectly thrown deep ball to WR Tyreek Hill for a 36-yard TD. It was a different story in the 2nd half. He was picked off on his 2nd pass after the break and was strip-sacked on his very next snap. Smith connected on just 6 of 10 attempts for 61 scoreless yards in the 2nd half, but Kansas City's defense did enough to hold on for the win. Smith has posted 220+ yards in 4 straight games. That's the good news. The bad news is that he's gone 6 straight games without tossing more than 1 TD. Even in a plus matchup against the Titans next week, he won't be more than a mid-range QB2.

Chiefs QB Alex Smith (head, ear) put in a full week of practice and will start Sunday’s game against the Panthers. That’s a plus matchup — Carolina has allowed the 6th most fantasy points to QBs — but Smith will be without WR Jeremy Maclin. He’s more QB2 than QB1 spot starter.

The Chiefs confirmed Monday that QB Alex Smith will start the Week 10 game at Carolina. ESPN reports that the team put him into the league concussion protocol and that HC Andy Reid decided to sit Smith against the Jaguars on Sunday despite the team and player both saying he didn't suffer a concussion. The move was reportedly precautionary after Smith left the Week 8 game twice with concussion-like symptoms. Independent doctors cleared him before the Jags game.

Chiefs QB Alex Smith is expected back for Week 10 against the Panthers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Smith is sitting out today's game against the Jaguars after taking a couple of big shots last week, although he reportedly didn't suffer a concussion. He'll be a spot-start option next week vs. a Carolina defense that's much better against the run than the pass.

Injury Predictor

Smith lost just 2 games to injuries across 5 seasons as the Chiefs' starter: 1 for a 2016 concussion, and another for a lacerated spleen at the end of 2014. Smith has stayed notably healthy otherwise despite ranking 3rd among QBs in rushing attempts over that span. The move to Washington should mean an O-line upgrade, as long as those blockers stay healthy. Washington watched 4 of 5 starters up front lost at least 1 game to injury in 2017.
