Last week: 6 (-1)
Alex Smith was 18 of 19 on Monday Night against the Cardinals, one completion shy of setting the all-time record for completion percentage in a single game. He did set the single game for most pass attempts with only 1 incompletion and that incompletion was actually a drop. The knock on him, however, is that he settled for mostly short stuff, completing just 10 passes longer than 3 yards through the air and actually averaging just 4.9 yards per completion through the air, getting a lot of his yardage after the catch against an Arizona defense that couldn’t tackle. He also looked 4 sacks on his 6 pressured snaps, sacks that even he admits he should have thrown away and taken the incompletion. This kind of stuff might fly against Arizona, but I still don’t trust him to lead them deep into the playoffs.
QB Alex Smith: 18 of 19 for 232 yards and 3 touchdowns, 1 drop, 130.9 adjusted QB rating, pressured on 6 of 23 drop backs (4 sacks, 2 of 2)
