2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL TRADE FALLOUT: FIRST QB BOMB GOES OFF AS ALEX SMITH DEALT TO REDSKINS

Well then.  Just days before Super Bowl 52 will put a bow on the 2017 NFL season, the Washington Redskins wasted little time in getting their QB for 2018 as they reportedly completed a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs for Alex Smith.  In return for Smith, the Chiefs will receive draft pick compensation and also reportedly a player(s) but the move won't become official until March when the new year in the league begins.  The move is a tremendous one with major reverberations as Smith's arrival in Washington means Kirk Cousins is on the way out.  Cousins will not get the franchise tag for the third year in a row and the Redskins now cast their lost with Smith who is less naturally skilled than Cousins but who is a proven winner who gets teams to the postseason.  In terms of fantasy football, Smith remains on the low-end QB 1 border who now has a much less potent receiving cast at present time in Washington compared to the major weapons he had in K.C.  On the flip side, Patrick Mahomes now is the unquestioned starter in K.C. where he will surely have his ups and downs in 2018.  This could hurt the production of some of the Chiefs receivers at times and Mahomes himself would be nothing but a backup speculative upside play.  Finally, Cousins will now have a new home next season which could involve the Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars, and other teams.  Already this is looking like one heck of an offseason for the league.
