2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Gets a ton of targets and had 142 last season

(+) Seems to make difficult catches look easy

(+) Besides his great size and strength, he can run like a freakin’ Gazelle

(+) Though he has since moved on, it looks like OC Charlie Weis didn’t have a problem turning Bowe into a bona fide Pro Bowler before he left

(+) Jamaal Charles going down in Week 1 definitely hurt his 2011 season. With Charles healthy, defenses can't focus too hard on Bowe and the passing game

(+) The Chiefs had been rumored to be looking for a wide receiver in the first round of the draft to help take the pressure off of Bowe in 2011...and they did when they nabbed Jonathan Baldwin

(–) He’s a boom or bust type of guy and has a tendency to disappear for at least a few weeks during the season

(–) His TDs went from 15 in 2010 down to five in 2011. He needs to get that fixed

(–) Jonathan Baldwin has the skill-set to be the WR1 by the end of the year if Bowe isn’t careful

(–) He's a bit of a head-case. Last year he was didn’t start in two separate games for conduct detrimental to the team

(–) Roger Goodell suspended Bowe for five games in 2009 for substance abuse (diuretic). Hopefully he can continue to stay clean and isn't a PED guy (doesn’t look like it)

(–) Might spend more time on Facebook/MySpace "importing" women than in the video room figuring out defenses

2009 Review

Dwayne Bowe followed up two strong seasons with one that never quite got off the ground in 2009.  Hampered by a tough offseason and a four-game suspension from the NFL for violating their substance abuse policy, Bowe ended up starting just 9 games last year en route to the worst of his three seasons in the league thus far.  There were some positives though, as Somewhere Over the Dwayne Bowe was targeted in the double-digits by his QB Matt Cassel during six of those nine games, which shows Cassel’s affinity for his big-play receiver.  Still, Bowe dropped too many passes, ate too many double cheeseburgers, and let down fantasy owners galore (and his teammates) in his supposed “breakout season”.

~  Ranked 54th in the league with 82.9 WR fantasy points (basic scoring system)

~  Tied for 54th in the league with 4 receiving touchdowns

~  Ranked 70th in the league with 589 receiving yards

~  Ranked 44th in the league with 53.5  receiving yards per game

~  Tied for 74th in the league with 47 receptions

~  Ranked 61st in the league with 87 targets

~  Ranked 65th in the league with 8 receptions of 20+ yards

~  Tied for 62nd in the league with 31 catches for first downs

~  Ranked 133rd in the league with 166 yards after the catch (YAC)

2010 Fantasy Outlook

Bowe still has all the skills to become an elite player (fantasy and otherwise), but the question remains, how bad does he want it?  If last year was any indication, we’d have to lean towards Bowe being a bust in 2010.  However, Charlie Weis will be the Chiefs offensive coordinator this year, which could be a HUGE bonus for those who plan on taking a chance on Dwayne.  Weis brings a high-octane style to his offenses, one that tends toward lofty numbers for his wide receivers, so Bowe could be in for the year everyone was expecting in 2009.  He’ll obviously be a risky pick in light of his meltdown last year, but as we love to say, more often than not, it’s the risks you take in the draft that put you over the top in the end.

~ The emergence of Jamaal Charles and the addition of Thomas Jones will open up the secondary

~ Charlie Weis is the kind of gravy all receivers want on their turkey

~ If Bowe wants to stick around, or at least receive some sort of contract extension, he’ll have to prove he’s worth it this year

In August of ’07, Bowe signed a five-year, $9 million rookie contract with a substantial portion of it being guaranteed.  Dwayne will remain plenty motivated to ink his first big free agent contract this upcoming year - and let's be real; he has some serious proving to do if he wants an extension at all.  Here are the final two years:

2010 - $600,000

2011 - $690,000

2012 - Free Agent

Chris Chambers has a bit of fantasy value on his own, so Jerheme Urban should be the handcuff for Bowe, or maybe even a Dexter McCluster by the time the season starts

Injury Report


Bowe has no history of injury and looks ready for the upcoming season

Dwayne Bowe a healthy scratch


Pyro's take: There is very little left in Dwayne Bowe, and the only reason he is still a Cleveland Brown is that lofry $9 million guranteed contract. I dont expect much out of Bowe this season if anything at all,

Mary Kay Cabot reported via twitter "Pettine said cutting Bowe has not been discussed. Has $9 million guarantee. They expect him to contribute this season"

Bowe and Smith trusting each other

Coming into his second year with quarterback Alex Smith, Bowe admits there’s a comfort level with Smith that they didn’t necessarily have last season.

“I would say trust,” Bowe said. “Definitely trust is a big factor. The first year we were getting to know each other, but this year, it’s like trust is there [and] the timing is getting better. And that’s all you can ask for is more time with the guy. And that’s what we’re out here doing—timing and working together. And it’s all coming together.”

It’s important for Bowe to know Smith can trust him to make those plays in traffic, delivering passes when there isn’t much room for error.

“It’s comfortable for me to know that he trusts me,” Bowe said. “If it’s 1-on-1 and a safety on top, I know that he knows that he could put it there and I’m going to come down with it. Because we’re paired off in practice so they are saying ‘do it in the preseason,’ and then from there we’ll take it into the regular season.”

Pyro's take: Bowe needs a lot of trust to become fantasy relevant after his 57 catch, 673 yards and five touchdowns last season. Alex Smith has always been a quarterback that plays it safe, not willing to take many risks. That has earned him the nickname "Checkdown".

Bowe has never had more than 1,162 receiving yards in a season, and won't this year. We are now four years removed from his breakout in 2010 where he had 15 touchdowns. Unforntunately that is the only season in which he had more than seven. Dwayne has become that steady veteran who is going to give you average points, but no breakout games.

Bowe looking for the endzone again this week

Dwayne Bowe, who in five-career games against the Raiders in Oakland has totaled 22 receptions for 341 yards and one TD, going 4-1 in the road contests. Bowe pinpointed keys to success against a tough Raiders secondary.

“Don’t turn the ball over and convert on third downs," Bowe said. "We need to keep our momentum from last week going and take care of business."

Pyro's take: Bowe does not have a solid history against the Raiders, and earlier this year had only three catches for 46 yards with no scores. Although, there is hope for him to have a better game this time around.

Alex Smith has had an improved chemsitry with Bowe as of late. Dwayne has three touchdowns in his last four games. The other benefit is that Dexter McCluster will not able to play this week with an infection suffered from a cut last week. Bowe should see more targets because of this.

Bowe caught puffing

An officer spotted Bowe’s 2011 Audi A8 traveling 48 mph in a 35 mph zone shortly before midnight at West Platte Road and Northwest Business Park, police said. The officer stopped the car at West Platte Road and Riverside Street.

While speaking to Bowe, the officer detected what he suspected was a strong marijuana odor coming from inside the Audi, police said. The officer had Bowe and two passengers get out of the vehicle before seeing if his K-9 would alert on anything in the vehicle during a check for illegal substances.

The officer arrested Bowe after finding a black bag holding Bowe’s wallet and two containers of what the officer suspected to be marijuana. One container had 6.6 grams of the substance in it and the second had 3.8 grams.

Pyro's take: Bowe is not going to miss this week's game, but he might miss some time if the league pursues him. All for less than a half ounce of weed.

I just wonder when these players are going to get smart about how they party. Bowe has been a non-existent fantasy receiver this season, so this news should not impact too many owners starting lineups.

Bowe injured in practice

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against Cleveland because of a groin spasm.

Bowe participated in warmups with his teammates on Friday but did not wear a helmet and did not practice.

“He’s feeling a bit better today than he did yesterday, which is good,” Reid said. “But let’s just see how he is (Saturday) and go from there.”

Reid said Bowe suffered the injury in practice on Thursday.

“He did it right towards the end, just tweaked it a little bit,” Reid said.

Pyro's take: Bowe has been a major disappointment this season, and has not been able to connect with Alex Smith, aka Checkdown Charlie, on any big plays this season.

Smith is a game manager who has never shown great ability in the vertical passing game. Now that Bowe is dealing with an injury he becomes an even riskier start this week.

Dwayne Bowe is active and will start

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is back from his suspension and starting against the Browns today.

Pyro's take: We're a little surprised coach Todd Haley isn't sitting Bowe today, being the prick that he is. Bowe has a real nice matchup for his return to the field, so feel free to start him on your fantasy team if you're in need of a WR2/3.

Bowe practicing with first-team today

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was taking reps with the first-team today in his first practice since returning from a four-game suspension.

Pyro's take: It seems Bowe will go back to being the Chiefs WR1 immediately this week, so consider starting him as a WR3 with upside on your fantasy football team this weekend as KC takes on a porous Browns defense.

Dwayne Bowe's suspension is over

The four-game suspension handed to Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe for using a banned performance enhancer is over.

Pyro's take: Bowe will rejoin the team immediately and likely thrown right back into the starting lineup. For those of you who kept him on your fantasy football bench the past month, he can start to be used again as you enter your fantasy playoffs.

Dwayne Bowe suspended for 4 games

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has been suspended by the NFL for four games for “violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances”. His suspension will begin immediately.

Pyro's take: Bowe will be back for the fantasy football playoffs in Week 15, but the question is, with coach Todd Haley not liking him very much in the first place, will Bowe even play upon return? Obviously we'll have to wait a month to find out, so keep him stashed on your bench for the duration of his time off.

Bowe motivated by trade talk?

Profootballtalk.com heard through a league source that Chiefs coach Todd Haley yelled at wide receiver Dwayne Bowe threatening to trade him if he didn't pick up his game. Bowe ended up with 6 catches for 109 yards, both highs on the year.

Pyro's take: The thought that it was the trade-threat that motivated Bowe is ridiculous, and for a coach to actually yell that at a player is as feeble-minded as it gets. Maybe the fact that Washington sucks and Bowe is the most talented player on the team had something to do with it? Ya think?

Dwayne Bowe to stay in KC

Despite rumblings that Baltimore would trade second and fifth-round draft picks to the Chiefs for wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, Ravens beat writer Aaron Wilson claims that "there’s nothing concrete to the rumors".

Pyro's take: The Chiefs have very little going for them, so trading away their best player (who is still playing on his rookie contract) doesn't seem like the smartest move right now. Kansas City may indeed stink, but Bowe still has WR2 fantasy football value.

Chiefs to use no-huddle more often

Chiefs coach Todd Haley said Monday in his weekly news conference that he wants to put more emphasis on the no-huddle offense going forward after seeing the Chiefs put up a season-high 20 points using it against the Cowboys on Sunday.

Pyro's take: At least the Chiefs found something that works, even if they didn't win the game. This bodes well for quarterback Matt Cassel and wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and can boost them up the fantasy football chain if the situation sticks.

Dwayne Bowe active on Sunday

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is active for the game against the Cowboys and will start as usual.

Pyro's take: Feel free to use Somewhere-over-the-Dwayne-Bowe on your fantasy football team this week as he should be able to at least put up WR2 numbers for you.

Dwayne Bowe active on Sunday

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) is active for the game against the Giants today.

Pyro's take: Bowe has a tough match-up today against one of the better corners in the league, but the Chiefs will pass a bunch, so it's safe to use him as a low-end WR2 or WR3 in your fantasy football lineup.

Bowe questionable for Sunday's game

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) is being listed as questionable on the team's injury report and will be a game-time decision on Sunday after being limited in practice on Friday.

Pyro's take: Whether he plays or not, the match-up isn't very favorable for Somewhere-Over-The-Dwayne-Bowe, so we'd sit him this week if you have another option hanging around on your fantasy football team.

Bowe limited in practice on Thursday

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was limited in practice on Thursday after sitting out all of practice on Wednesday due to his injured hamstring.

Pyro's take: ”He was out there today, which was better than yesterday,” Chiefs head coach Todd Haley said. “I was happy to see him out there and we’ll have to see where he’s at tomorrow.“
We'll let you know later in the week whether to start or sit him on your fantasy football team on Sunday.

Bowe to miss one more week?

Chiefs coach Todd Haley wants to be cautious with his star wide receiver, Dwayne Bowe (hamstring), and stated as much on Monday. “Anytime you’re talking about a hamstring, especially with a skill position, you’ve got to err on the side of caution because those things can end up being a long-term thing if you’re not careful,” Haley said.

Pyro's take: It would probably be a smart move for the Chiefs to sit Bowe for one more week while he recovers from his hamstring injury. Keep Over-the-Dwayne-Bowe on your fantasy football bench until he's 100 percent again.

Dwayne Bowe inactive against Eagles

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has been declared inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Pyro's take: This was somewhat unexpected as he was still practicing on Friday, though on a limited basis. His leg must have worsened a bit over the weekend. Take the big WR2 out of your fantasy lineup for this week.

Bowe at practice with wrap around right leg

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe looked to be somewhat limited at practice today as he was wearing a wrap around his injured right leg. Bowe is listed as questionable on the Chiefs injury report.

Pyro's take: We suspect that Somewhere-over-the-Dwayne-Bowe will play, but you might want to check back on Sunday morning before slotting him into your fantasy lineup just in case his leg worsens.

Bowe limited in practice on Thursday

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was limited in practice today due to a leg injury, not an illness as originally thought. The specifics of the injury are unknown at this point.

Pyro's take: We don't think there is anything to worry about here, but keep checking back as we'll update the situation as it gets closer to game day. Consider it safe to keep him in your fantasy lineup for now.
