Chiefs | Staff treating Dwayne Bowe like an adult

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:58:07 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid are treating WR Dwayne Bowe like an adult by allowing him to work hard while expressing himself. Reid has shown a willingness to trust Bowe's on-field observations and adjust Reid's play calling accordingly.

Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe focused on winning

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:34:48 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe is focused more on working hard with his teammates and winning than individual statistics entering the 2014 season. Bowe also hired a personal trainer and nutritionist.

FANTASY TIP: Bowe has the potential to be a solid value pick in later rounds because of the volume of targets he'll receive. The upside may be limited, but the floor is borderline starter territory, especially in PPR formats, where he is a third fantasy option. Bowe bounced back from his previous career-worst season with his best in 2010.
