Dwayne Bowe struggles along with rest of Chiefs, disappointing fantasy owners

Dwayne Bowe was a non-factor against the Bucs as the offense sputtered. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe was one of the biggest victims of Brady Quinn's ineptitude. Against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6, Bowe was held to just three catches for 21 yards, despite being targeted nine times.

Quinn couldn't get any kind of pulse going on the offense, and Bowe's numbers suffered as a result. The Chiefs were blown out 38-10 and fall to 1-4 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: This is the risk of starting talented WRs with bad QBs. The good news (what passes for good news in KC) is that Matt Cassel may come back in Week 8, and as bad as he is, he at least can get the ball to Bowe.

The Chiefs have a bye next week, so stash Bowe and prepare for him to be a good WR2 option against the Raiders in Week 8.
