Fantasy Football: Grab this quarterback now

There probably aren’t many good players left on your waiver wire these days, but there’s a quarterback who would definitely be worth grabbing if he is, fantasy football owners.

Alex Smith.

Our fantasy football guru Mike Baldwin likes the Chiefs quarterback as a pick-up this week for a couple reasons. First, Smith has been playing pretty darn well for the Chiefs, who have won their first two games. He’s thrown four touchdowns, no interceptions and has nearly 400 passing yards.

But here’s why this week might be a great time to get Smith: the Chiefs are playing the Eagles, who apparently think playing defense is optional. They have given up at least 27 points in each of their first two games, and last week against the Chargers, they allowed Philip Rivers to throw for 419 yards and three touchdowns. So there’s a great chance that Smith will have a productive week for fantasy owners.
