2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Alex Smith, QB, San Francisco 49ers

2010 Stats (11 gms)
2370 yds.
14 TDs
     10 INTs
2011 Projected
3110 yds.
18 TDs
     14 INTs

If new 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is serious about keeping Smith, this could be a very good thing for the quarterback. Smith has shown flashes of promise, but his inconsistency has made him a liability. The Niners have a wealth of talent with Frank Gore at running back, Vernon Davis at tight end and Michael Crabtree at wide receiver. San Francisco has also done a good job of building a solid offensive line and the Niners offense should make great strides under Harbaugh. This year could be Smith's last chance to prove he's a starting NFL quarterback. Of the lower tier quarterbacks, he's the one who might be worth a gamble in the late rounds on draft day.
