Dwayne Bowe quiet for fantasy owners, Chiefs

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

With his team leading early and turning to the run, Bowe didn't get a lot of looks Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dwayne Bowe had a quiet day Sunday, gaining only 30 yards on four receptions. He was targeted six times by new quarterback Alex Smith as the Chiefs beat the Jaguars, 28-2.

Bowe was targeted as many times as any Chief, with the team taking an early lead against the hapless Jacksonville squad and turned to the run.

Fantasy impact: No Chiefs receiver had more than Bowe's four receptions or six targets, so it seems this was more a case of not throwing too often than of Bowe being left out. Smith's two touchdown passes went to Donnie Avery and Junior Hemingway -- two players unlikely to supplant Bowe as the team's best.

As the Chiefs play teams better than Jacksonville (not a hard task), they'll have to throw the ball more, and Bowe will likely see more touches. Owners shouldn't be worried.
