Dwayne Bowe can't get untracked for fantasy owners, Chiefs

Jamie Squire

The Chiefs star wide receiver has not been able to get a big game yet this season. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe had another quiet game Sunday. He was held to 35 yards on four receptions as the Chiefs beat the Tennessee Titans 26-17.

Bowe has not had a big game yet on the season, not going over 60 receiving yards in any individual game. He has two scores (one each in Weeks 2 and 4), but otherwise has been just about a nothing in the fantasy game.

Fantasy impact: Bowe led the team's wide receivers in targets Sunday, but Donnie Avery, tight end Sean McGrath, and running back Jamaal Charles all outgained him in the passing game. At some point, this lack of production has to be a serious concern to Bowe owners, and that point might be now.

Bowe was drafted as a WR2 or WR3/flex in most leagues. His lack of production even as his team goes to 5-0 makes it difficult to believe he'll rebound back to expectations (under the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" theorem). Going forward, Bowe should be considered a starter only in desperate situations or in bye weeks.
