Fantasy Football site KFFL.com has come out with their list of “Overvalued Fantasy Players” for the 2007 season. 9’ers signal caller Alex Smith is the #3 QB on their list of Overvalued Players. Below are the comments on Smith:
Alex D. Smith, San Francisco 49ers
Entering his third season, there is plenty of hype for Smith in being a potential sleeper. However, he is being drafted as a No. 2 quarterback, when you need something steady at that spot. The quarterback position is one of the most volatile positions this season because you have about five quarterbacks you can count on to produce, but if one of those goes down, your season goes down the drain. You need a good backup plan, and Smith isn’t there yet. He has thrown 17 touchdown passes and 27 interceptions in his first two seasons, so he will need to cut down on his mistakes in 2007. The offense is also more geared to the run, so if Smith has a good season, it probably won’t be anything spectacular in fantasy – much like a season New York Jets quarterback Chad Pennington would produce. Look for Smith as a No. 3 quarterback and let others reach for him.
