Dwayne Bowe Fantasy Value Could Peak Against Saints Defense

Dwayne Bowe could have a big fantasy day against a porous Saints defense. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Kansas City Chiefs have a lot of problems after an 0-2 start, but WR Dwayne Bowe hasn't been one of them. After a monster Week 2 performance (eight catches, 102 yards, two touchdowns), Bowe is off to a hot start to the season, with 11 catches for 155 yards and two scores. KC's Week 3 opponent is the New Orleans Saints, who are also 0-2 and have problems of their own.

Fantasy Impact: NO's big problem, of course, is the defense. In two games, they gave up 550 yards and three touchdowns through the air, and have been shredded by a rookie RG3 and a Cam Newton who is clearly still a work in progress. This game promises to be a shootout (also look for a big bounceback from Jamaal Charles), and Bowe looks to reap the biggest fantasy rewards for the Chiefs.
