Fantasy Impact: Through targets alone Bowe remains a decent prospect in PPR formats. The Chiefs' conservative offense and Bowe's lack of red zone opportunities makes him all but irrelevant in standard leagues, though. Bowe would likely benefit if recent signee Jason Avant could have an immediate impact in the Kansas City's aerial attack. Defenses would be forced to divide their attention which could open up more quality looks for Bowe. For now, it's a wait-and-see situation, though.

When your quarterback only has 108 passing yards and you still win, it's because you have an elite running game, and most likely an elite defense. Bowe had 2 receptions for 18 yards on 4 targets on Sunday. This is a direct result of the Chiefs playing to their strengths.

Fantasy Impact: If you are desperate and have the right match up, Bowe could score you a few points. Other than that he will not be a factor with all the other options that may be out there.

Donnie Avery returned to practice in a limited role this week but is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. (Source: www.kcchiefs.com)

Fantasy Impact: Avery likely isn't on your radar but his absence, along with that of A.J. Jenkins, means Dwayne Bowe figures to have a majority of Smith's targets again Sunday. While targets are nice, Bowe is facing a stingy Seattle secondary, so don't expect a career outing by any means. He remains a safe WR3 play in PPR formats with a relatively high floor and low ceiling.

Dwayne Bowe caught eight passes for 93 yards Sunday against the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Dwayne Bowe continues to have a steady, yet unspectacular season. He did have a season high 93 yards on Sunday but it still yet to find the end zone. While Bowe is a decent bye week replacement, he needs to find the end zone and break the 100 yard mark to be a truly viable play.

Dwayne Bowe led the NFL in touchdowns in 2010 with 15, but so far in 2014, neither he nor any other of the Chiefs wide receivers has a touchdown reception. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: On a weekly basis Dwayne Bowe is quietly a productive member of the Chiefs offense, and he is happy with that. Unfortunately though, in the Chiefs dink and dunk, run first offense, Bowe is not much of a fantasy contributer if he can't get in the end zone. He is a WR5 or so until he can put some scores together.

Dwayne Bowe catches six passes for 55 yards in Chiefs win.

Fantasy Impact: Dwayne Bowe caught six of his 10 targets for 55 yards in another efficient, yet mediocre, performance. Bowe is a decent bye replacement WR3, but with the Chiefs dink-and-dunk passing attack, he should not be a weekly start.

By Daniel Lucia, Chiefs Correspondent, Wed, Oct 29th 12:22pm EDT

Dwayne Bowe caught all six of his targets for 64 yards in the Chiefs week eight match up with the St. Louis Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Dwayne Bowe is quietly having an efficient, yet unspectacular, year. With the Chiefs focus on the run, Bowe is not a weekly starter in fantasy formats, but is a player who could be used as a bye week replacement in deeper leagues.

By Mark Horn, Chiefs Correspondent, Sun, Oct 19th 10:36pm EDT

Dwayne Bowe caught a 29 yard pass from Alex Smith that helped set up the winning field goal in the Chiefs 23-20 win versus the San Diego Chargers. Bowe finished with 5 receptions for 84 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Bowe scored 8 points in a standard league, and could warrant consideration was a WR3 or flex option. Since his bye week is already complete he could also come in handy as a solid reserve player.

By Daniel Lucia, Chiefs Correspondent, Mon, Oct 6th 9:28am EDT

Dwayne Bowe caught just three passes for 42 yards in week five.

Fantasy Impact: With just 14 catches for 195 yards and no scores in four games so far in 2014, Dwayne Bowe seems like he has lost his fantasy relevance. Bowe will be nothing more than a bench player or someone to monitor on waivers after the Chiefs week six bye.

By Daniel Lucia, Chiefs Correspondent, Wed, Oct 1st 9:01pm EDT

Dwayne Bowe caught five passes, including a 33 yarder, for 81 yards Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Dwayne Bowe had his best game to date in week four. If this is a sign of things to come, Bowe may become a fantasy relevant player once again, especially during the byes, for his owners. For now, monitor his effectiveness in the coming weeks before making him a starting option.

Dwayne Bowe had a solid game against the Patriots. He had five receptions for 81 yards. Most of these were in the first half. The Chiefs relied more on their dominant running game in the second half given their substantial lead.

Fantasy Impact: Alex Smith distributed the ball quite evenly, however Bowe provided the big target needed when the game was still in question. Bowe is a great waiver wire pick up in most leagues.

After serving a one game suspension in week one, Dwayne Bowe has been less than impressive in the Chiefs offense. (Source: MailOnline)

Fantasy Impact: With just six catches on 12 targets and 72 yards in two games so far this season, Dwayne Bowe is far from the explosive number one WR he was a few years back. He reportedly came into camp in great shape, but for now should be considered a low-end flex option until he proves his fantasy worth.

By Steve Painter, Chiefs Correspondent, Sun, Sep 14th 11:39pm EDT

Dwayne Bowe was targeted six times and had 3 receptions in his season debut against the Broncos Sunday. He totaled 40 yards in the effort.

Fantasy Impact: Bowe is on the fringe of fantasy relevancy, being more WR4 than any higher. As long as the offense remains run-oriented then he should probably remain on the bench or waiver wire.

Fantasy Impact: Bowe is no more than a WR3 but keep in mind that they are playing Denver. This probably means that the Chiefs will be playing catch-up throughout the game. He could get some points for those who are still wrestling with their lineups.

Dwayne Bowe has been added to the Chiefs' 53 man roster after serving his one game suspension. (Source: Terez Paylor on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dwayne Bowe was anticipated to be a critical part of the Chiefs offense prior to being'spended. With the sub par performance of the offense against the Titans, and the 13 targets to Donnie Avery, it is expected for Bowe to return as the WR1 for the Chiefs. In deeper leagues he should be considered a WR3 or flex option.

By Andrew Sears, Chiefs Correspondent, Fri, Aug 15th 1:26pm EDT

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bowe will be suspended for the first game of the regular season due to last year's arrest for possession of an illegal substance. This news comes on the heels that Bowe is also struggling with a finger injury that has caused him to struggle with drops in Training Camp. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It's another blow to Bowe's fantasy value but the bigger issue is still likely the finger injury which head coach Andy Reid described as "being shot". Bowe is currently going in the 9th round of standard drafts. We would anticipate his ADP to drop a round or 2 and fantasy owners should be cautious about targeting him.

Coach Andy Reid reports Dwayne Bowe's finger is "shot" which explains why he has dropped so many passes in practice. According to Reid it has been thrown out of place up to 15 times. Bowe is still practicing although not catching any passes. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Bowe put in the off-season work needed to improve on last year's disappointing season, however this injury has to be a set back. At this point Bowe may be a decent bench player to be added in later rounds. He is important to the Chiefs thin receiving corps, but to expect WR3 production would be a high risk at this juncture.

Dwayne Bowe spent the offseason improving his conditioning, entering the 2014 campaign 10 to 13 pounds lighter than last season, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today. (Source: USA Today)

Fantasy Impact: The Chiefs are hoping Bowe's improved conditioning leads to improved totals. The wide receiver put up disappointing numbers last season, and now that he's on the wrong side of 30 it's not clear what his production will be moving forward.
