Nonetheless, Smith totaled a season-high 40 Fantasy points, which was also the fourth time in five games he surpassed 20 Fantasy points. In fact, Smith is averaging 27 Fantasy points per in his last five games since Kansas City's Week 10 bye.
Next up for Smith and the Chiefs will be a showdown with the playoff-bound Colts in Week 16. Quarterbacks are averaging 248.2 passing yards and 17.9 Fantasy points per week against Indianapolis. Quarterbacks have totaled 20 passing touchdowns to 13 interceptions in 14 games, while six quarterbacks have surpassed 20 Fantasy points.
Smith has been a much different quarterback since the bye, as the Chiefs have opened up the passing game a bit. Last week, he benefited from Charles making plays after the catch. However, while a 40-point performance likely isn't in store again, Smith could still have a productive day against the Colts. Consider him a viable low-end Fantasy starter Week 16.
Smith threw for scores of 49, 39, 16, 71 and then 6 yards. Four of his five touchdown passes came to Jamaal Charles. He lost a fumble early in the fourth quarter for his only blemish of the day. Smith sat out most of the final period with the game well in hand. He completed 17 of 20 passes for 287 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions in a 56-31 victory.
Smith fell 13 yards shy of his first 300-yard passing game with the Chiefs. He has passed for at least 287 yards in three of his last four games. He'll look to stay efficient at home against the Colts in Week 16.
Smith completed 14 of 20 passes for 137 yards and two touchdowns on a snowy FedEx Field field against the Redskins in Week 14. His 20 pass attempts were a season-low, so we expect Smith's numbers to look better in Week 15. The Raiders have allowed 250.5 passing yards per game, which ranks 23rd this season. Opposing quarterbacks have scored 21.15 Fantasy points per game this season against the Raiders, which is the fifth most allowed this season.
Smith was held out of the end zone in his previous meeting this season against the Raiders, but we expect him do better this time around. Still, the 29-year-old has yet to throw for 300 yards in a game this season, so we're not expecting a breakout game either. Consider him a low-end starting option for Week 15.
In all, Smith completed 14 of 20 passes for 137 yards. The 20 pass attempts were a season low and less than half of what he had against the Broncos last week. Of course, with running back Jamaal Charles piling up 151 yards on 19 carries and Dexter McCluster and Quintin Demps contributing touchdowns on special teams, the Chiefs didn't need Smith to throw much. He attempted only seven passes in the second half.
Smith will attempt to keep the multiple-touchdown streak alive in what looks to be another favorable matchup Week 15 at Oakland.
With multiple touchdown passes in three straight games,
The Redskins rank 27th against the pass, allowing 265.3 yards per game. They've allowed the third-highest quarterback rating and surrendered the fifth-most Fantasy points to quarterbacks this season.
Of course, part of the reason for Smith's increased production over the last three weeks is because he needed to throw to keep up with the points that Peyton Manning (twice) and Philip Rivers were putting up. The Redskins, at least at first glance, don't pose the same threat. If they don't score, most likely neither does Smith.
So even though he's on a roll and has a favorable matchup, the Chiefs' preference to win with defense makes Smith a risky start this week. Dave Richard, Jamey Eisenberg and Nathan Zegura all rank him among their top 12 quarterbacks for this week, but you might be better off going with a Philip Rivers or Matt Ryan type.
