Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (groin) did not participate in practice on Friday and was limited on Thursday. He is listed as questionable for the team's Week 8 game against the Cleveland Browns. While the injury appears to be a new development, it doesn't dramatically change his fantasy outlook assuming he does play on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Dwayne Bowe has had an underwhelming season to say the least. After signing a $56 million deal in the spring, Bowe has rewarded the Chiefs by posting 25 catches for 295 yards and two touchdowns while playing in all seven games on the season. The Chiefs have been a run-first team all season long. While star running back Jamaal Charles was projected to the be the primary beneficiary of the new offense, no one expected such a dramatic decline in production from Bowe. His 11.2 yards per catch is almost two yards under is career average.
Things likely won't get any easier for Bowe against the Cleveland. The Browns have significantly-improved secondary and he will likely be shadowed by shutdown corner back Joe Haden. He is a low-end WR4, and owners should explore other alternatives.
