Dwayne Bowe misses Wednesday's practice: Fantasy Implications

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe missed practice on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe missed practice on Wednesday for unknown reasons, per Adam Teicher. It was likely a day of rest for Bowe following the Monday night loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Chiefs have been on a rocky road this season, and it's hurt Bowe's numbers and ability to help this offense.

Regardless, Bowe should be ready to go this weekend when his team takes on the Cincinnati Bengals. Hopefully a day of rest is just what Bowe needed.

Fantasy Analysis: Despite the caliber receiver he is, it's fair to assume that Bowe's numbers are not near where they could be. The Chiefs have struggled as a team, especially on the offensive side of the ball. The instability at the quarterback position is a big reason Bowe isn't the consistent week-to-week producer he's capable of being.

Even though he's surrounded by red flags, Bowe should remain in your lineup. He does have the ability to make those spectacular highlight catches that don't require terrific QB play. Continue to start Bowe but temper your expectations.
