Finally Bowe has a capable QB throwing to him. From Kyle Orton to Matt Cassel and a bunch of QBs who do not play in the NFL ever again after their few game stint with the Chiefs. Bowe gets Alex Smith, and most importantly Andy Reid. Look for the Chiefs to pass the ball often, while also giving the ball to Jamaal Charles often. Smith knows how to get the ball into #1 WR hands, Michael Crabtree had his moments, Bowe is a much better player.Torrey has a lot of upside with the Ravens in 2013. With Dennis Pitta out for the season, Torrey will be a target machine. Somehow, someway, Flacco has to throw for over 250 Yards a game. Torrey is the only capable player of getting numbers outside of Ray Rice.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Bowe starts his rebound season on a solid note in Jacksonville, a team that was 13th against fantasy receivers last year. Still, Bowe should see too many targets to be anything less than a WR2.Smith had 3 receptions for 98 yards and 2 touchdowns as he exposed Champ Bailey in the playoffs last year and he probably will not play against the Ravens, as he just ditched his walking boot. Smith has WR2 appeal in this early season matchup.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
He's the main threat for the Chiefs in the passing game and Reid likes the passing game. The Jaguars defense will be improved under Gus Bradley, but they'll still have trouble getting to the quarterback. Bowe should be able to get a bunch of targets with his competition in the Chiefs lineup not being much.The season opener is a rematch of last year’s AFC Divisional Playoff game in which the Ravens won a thriller in overtime at Mile High. In that matchup the Ravens pounded the ball on the ground 35 times for 144 yards, which set up Torrey Smith deep against Champ Bailey. And it worked well with Smith catching two touchdowns, one for 59 yards and the other for 32 yards. And this time around the Broncos will be without Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil, the first who is suspended and the second who...

Bowe should be considered a low-end No.2 Fantasy WR with a ton of upside and chance to be a must-start option depending on how he clicks with Alex Smith and develops under Andy Reid. Bowe is worth drafting in Rounds 5-6, any later he's a steal as a 2013 Bounce Back candidate.Smith has a ton of expectations as he enters his 3rd-Year with the Ravens. He has produced similar production each of the last 2 years as he has produced roughly 50 receptions for 850 yards with 7 touchdowns as a rookie and 8 touchdowns last year. If you play it safe, you could be looking at Smith as a No.3 Fantasy WR in Round 7 but no sooner.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Bowe should have a nice start to the year against weak Jags D.All depends on Champ Bailey's status.  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Andy Reid loves him some big, T.O.-esque receivers, and Dwayne Bowe most certainly fits the bill. Alex Smith isn't great, but he's surely an upgrade over Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn.

 Value gets bump with Pitta out for the year but catch percentage must improve  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
This Spring Dwayne Bowe predicted he would lead the NFL in catches and in receiving Touchdowns. As far as the passing game goes, Bowe says, “when the real season starts, that’s when you’ll see bombs over Bagdad.”Baltimore WR’s, What Baltimore WR’s? Torrey Smith is the only WR left in Baltimore. Deep threat Torrey Smith is set up to have a huge year in this Ravens Offense. This season will be Smith’s 3rd season in the NFL, the year WRs typically break out. He will also be their new Number 1 WR.
