Dwayne Bowe has a slow start. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dwayne Bowe started his 2012 in a quiet fashion with only three catches for 53 yards in the loss to Atlanta.

Analysis: Bowe saw just six of Cassel's targets and it didn't look like he had many plays that were designed to him as the first read. The Chiefs are going to run the ball with total disregard of the matchup and score, so we wouldn't expect to see many monster games out of the LSU product. That said, Bowe should have his best chance to bust out against the very soft Buffalo secondary. If you drafted him, you basically have to start him next week.
