NFL Scores Week 1: Alex Smith Gaining Confidence in 49ers-Seahawks Affair
Alex Smith's tenure with the San Francisco 49ers has been about as pretty as Lindsay Lohan's rap sheet since being drafted as the No. 1 pick in the 2005 NFL Draft.
However, he is showing glimpses of life in leading the 49ers to a 16-0 early second-half lead over the Seattle Seahawks to start the 2011 season.
If he can build on a 9-of-11 first-half passing performance, along with already reaching pay dirt on a rushing touchdown, the 49ers just might have a chance in what should be a wide-open NFC West.
Fantasy GMs may want to put him on a watch list, as if he strings a couple of these performances together, he'll be worth a flier as at least a back-up roster spot in 12 team and deeper leagues.
It's hard to really buy into Smith as being for real, as he's offered nothing but inconsistencies his entire career, but it is worth monitoring at the very least.
