Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (quadriceps) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Sept. 12, and he's listed as probable for Week 2 against the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe is back after his one-game suspension, and he's not expected to have his snaps limited at all against the Broncos. You'd be better served looking for a receiving option at FantasyScore, though. Bowe will cost you $4,800 (9.6% of cap).

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (quadriceps) isn't expected to be limited in any way in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos in his first game of the season after serving a one-game suspension, according to head coach Andy Reid. "He had a great training camp and preseason," Reid said. "I haven't seen anything (like that). I liked what I saw there. He came back in great shape. We expect him to have a real good year."
Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign for Bowe owners, but expecting anything more than WR3 numbers in his season debut is probably foolish.
Thu, 11 Sep 2014 16:21:15 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (quadriceps) practiced in full for the second straight day this week Thursday, Sept. 11.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe is cheap at FantasyScore ($4,800; 9.6% of cap), but you can probably find better options. Remember, it's Bowe's first game of the season coming off a one-game suspension.
Wed, 10 Sep 2014 16:25:03 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (quadriceps) returned to a full practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, but head coach Andy Reid said the team plans to ease him back in after he was suspended for the first week of the season. "We'll ease him back in and make sure he gets him back into the swing of things," Reid said of Bowe. "He really hadn't done much for a few weeks."
Fantasy Tip: It makes sense with Bowe missing Week 1 and being a little dinged up. The Chiefs will likely have to play catch-up with the Denver Broncos, which is good for Bowe, but he could wind up matched up against shut-down corner Aqib Talib. We recommend avoiding Bowe and his $4,800 (9.6% of cap) pricetag this weekend.
Tue, 09 Sep 2014 13:10:17 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will return to the 53-man roster from Reserve/Suspension this week, the team announced Tuesday, Sept. 9. Bowe served a one-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Fantasy Tip: It's nice to have Bowe back, but at the same time there's somewhat of a risk. It might be best to wait a week before putting him in your lineup, but he does offer a relatively cheaper option at $4,800 on FantasyScore, even if he'll be matched up against Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib.
Wed, 27 Aug 2014 05:25:43 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Frankie Hammond Jr. is likely to start in place of suspended WR Dwayne Bowe in Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: Hammond is worth a flier in deeper leagues, but we need to see more to justify a standard-league spot.
Thu, 21 Aug 2014 12:56:39 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 21.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe has been suspended for Week 1 but should be one of the top targets in the team's passing game. Bowe probably will be a No. 3 wide receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Fri, 15 Aug 2014 09:16:05 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will be suspended for one game for substance abuse, and he'll miss the season opener against the Tennessee Titans, according to a team source.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe's status as an undervalued sleeper for fantasy leagues is quickly fading. This news just contributes to that further. He's also dealing with a finger injury that has led to inconsistency in training camp and dropped passes. The Chiefs already don't have many reliable receivers beyond Bowe. For Week 1 against the Titans, Travis Kelce may be your best bet in daily games, especially now that Bowe will miss the contest.
Fri, 15 Aug 2014 05:44:44 -0700
Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe's (finger) finger is "shot", according to head coach Andy Reid. "It's been thrown out of place about 15 times, and he's not catching the ball," Reid said. "But he's getting his work done. You can practice with that type of thing."
Fantasy Tip: He's not expected to miss any time except an occasional day off for maintenance. He's a good WR3 in fantasy.
Thu, 14 Aug 2014 14:39:29 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (finger) suffered a finger injury but is still able to practice, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Fantasy Tip: The severity of the injury was unclear, though it can't be too serious if he can practice with it. He remains a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 option as the Chiefs' go-to receiver.
Wed, 13 Aug 2014 12:49:22 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe is in terrific shape, according to wide receivers coach David Culley. "He's in the best shape he's been in. I know from last year, this is completely different."
Fantasy Tip: Bowe will be the top passing option in the Chiefs offense in 2014, which will make him a low-end WR2 on draft day.
Fri, 25 Jul 2014 22:59:14 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (ankle) was hit on the right ankle or foot area in a play at practice Friday, July 25. He got up limping, but did not leave the field. After practice Bowe indicated there were no problems.
Mon, 14 Jul 2014 18:38:44 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe worked out with Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald Monday, July 14, during Fitzgerald's annual workouts at the University of Minnesota.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe dropped some weight and has been working with a personal trainer this offseason, and he seems to be doing his part to rebound from a disappointing 2013 season. However, Kansas City's offense is built around Jamaal Charles, making Bowe a WR2 at best this year.
Sun, 13 Jul 2014 17:29:37 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe looked great during offseason workouts.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe should again be the team's top option in the passing game in 2014. Owners should consider Bowe a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver in fantasy drafts.
Fri, 13 Jun 2014 05:51:36 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe said he's in the best shape of his life and weighs around 210 pounds. He hired a nutritionist and trainer in the offseason for the first time in his career.
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.
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.
Wed, 16 Apr 2014 15:58:06 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe pleaded guilty Wednesday, April 16, after being arrested last November for marijuana possession. He pleaded guilty to lesser charges of littering and defective equipment, and in return, the marijuana charge was dismissed. He agreed to pay $610 in fines and court costs.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Bowe will face a suspension with the league, but it's highly unlikely at this point.
Mon, 17 Feb 2014 23:26:12 -0800
The Kansas City Chiefs would like to clear some extra cap space in order to further improve their roster, but there aren't many veterans who would be logical cap casualties. ESPN.com's Adam Teicher writes that the biggest savings would come from LB Tamba Hali, CB Brandon Flowers, and SS Eric Berry, but notes that those players are too productive to let go. WR Dwayne Bowe and CB Sean Smith would make more sense on the field, but financially are not options for release.
Wed, 08 Jan 2014 13:56:29 -0800

Fri, 27 Dec 2013 12:25:43 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 17 against the San Diego Chargers. WR Junior Hemingway is Bowe's backup, but WR A.J. Jenkins could also see some targets as a result of Bowe's absence.
Thu, 26 Dec 2013 17:27:14 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (concussion) probably will not play Week 17 because of his concussion.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe's extra snaps could go to Junior Hemingway and A.J. Jenkins, but they are stretches to help you win a fantasy championship in Week 17.
Thu, 26 Dec 2013 16:27:55 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Wed, 13 Nov 2013 09:53:06 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said WR Dwayne Bowe will start in the team's Week 11 game even though he was arrested earlier in the week.
Wed, 13 Nov 2013 08:44:58 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will be suspended by the NFL for violating the league's substance-abuse policy if he's convicted for speeding and possession of a controlled substance.
Fantasy Tip: There's a pretty good chance that Bowe will face some sort of suspension by the league, but when that happens is unknown. For now, continue using him as a WR3 or flex.
Wed, 13 Nov 2013 07:18:34 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will play in Week 11, despite his recent arrest.
Tue, 12 Nov 2013 18:10:21 -0800
ESPN.com's Ed Werder doesn't believe Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will be disciplined for his marijuana arrest until the case is adjudicated, meaning it isn't likely to affect his availability for Week 11 against the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Tip: It's reasonable to expect WR3 numbers in most formats from an active Bowe against a Broncos secondary that has been favorable to most passing games they've faced.
Tue, 12 Nov 2013 11:48:57 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Junior Hemingway will step into the starting lineup in Week 11 against the Denver Broncos if WR Dwayne Bowe is suspended for the contest.
Fantasy Tip: Hemingway should only be an option for those desperate in cavernous leagues. There's no guarantee just yet that Bowe will be suspended this week, either.
Tue, 12 Nov 2013 08:01:32 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe was arrested Sunday, Nov. 10, and was charged with speeding and possession of marijuana. Bowe was clocked moving at 48 mph in a 35 mph zone. He has posted bond and has a court date set for Dec. 18.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe signed a five-year deal with the team before the season and hasn't had a very good year. It might be a little extreme for the 9-0 team to cut him due to this, but it certainly won't be very appealing to the team.
Sun, 03 Nov 2013 22:49:38 -0800
Buffalo Bills CB Stephon Gilmore switched sides of the field to target Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe, but Bowe caught seven passes for 67 yards despite Gilmore targeting Bowe 12 times. "He's going out there against a guy … you've got to remember that's Dwayne Bowe out there, and he's covering him man-to-man in a lot of situations," Bills coach Doug Marrone said.
Fri, 01 Nov 2013 13:34:52 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 1, and is listed as probable for Week 9.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe can be used as a No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver on fantasy teams this week but probably would be safer as a flex option.
Thu, 31 Oct 2013 15:22:51 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (groin) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.
Fantasy Tip: It's a mild concern that Bowe went from a full practice Wednesday to being limited today. The matchup against the Buffalo Bills this weekend, in theory, should get him out of his funk, but it's not a guarantee. In the Chiefs offense, there isn't much upside for boom potential anymore. Consider him more of a WR3.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 17:56:32 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (groin) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Tue, 29 Oct 2013 11:09:58 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster had a team-high seven catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 8 win over the Cleveland Brown. He also had one rush for five yards. "As a player, you never know when it's going to be your day," said McCluster, who was targeted by QB Alex Smith a team-high 10 times. "You just have to be there when it's time. I was able to get started early and get some balls early." His 13 touches were a season high, and the team has been looking for someone to step up and help lighten the workload for RB Jamaal Charles. Smith thinks the team will use McCluster more in the second half of the season.
Fantasy Tip: With Dwayne Bowe being limited with an injury, McCluster stepped up last Sunday. Bowe has been a disappointment, and McCluster's jack-of-all-trades versatility could make him a valuable asset down the stretch, especially in point-per-reception leagues. Consider adding him as receiver depth in deeper formats.
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 08:47:33 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (groin) will play in the team's Week 8 game.
Fantasy Tip: Owners that were expecting Bowe to miss the game and are using a desperation play can put Bowe in the starting lineup. Owners can keep Bowe on the bench if they have better options at the position.
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 06:05:44 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (groin) is expected to start in the team's Week 8 game, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Sat, 26 Oct 2013 16:24:02 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (groin) will be able to play Week 8 even though he is listed as questionable for the game.
Fri, 25 Oct 2013 13:18:39 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (groin) did not practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Andy Reid said Bowe will be a game-time decision Sunday. "It's day to day," Reid said. "We'll just see how he does. He's feeling a little bit better today than he did yesterday." Bowe was injured toward the end of practice Thursday, Oct. 24.
Fantasy Tip: Donnie Avery and Dexter McCluster will be used more often if Bowe doesn't play or is limited in any fashion on game day. Junior Hemingway could also receive the start if Bowe is sidelined.
Thu, 24 Oct 2013 15:45:33 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (groin) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 24.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe was added to the injury report, but it doesn't appear to be a significant ailment. Keep tabs on his status tomorrow, but all nothing, as of now, would indicate that he's in jeopardy of missing the game against the Cleveland Browns.
Fri, 11 Oct 2013 19:43:52 -0700
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe has lacked explosion during the early going, and he has struggled to beat man coverage, giving the team a big problem.
Fantasy Tip: Bowe has managed at least four receptions in four of his five games, but he is averaging just 10.8 yards per grab, down from 13.6 yards per catch last season, which was just about his career average of 13.7 yards per catch. He has just 36.6 yards per game, too, and that's well off his average of 63.6 yards per game. At this point, he is only worth using as a WR4 or flex play.
Fri, 23 Aug 2013 18:10:38 -0700
The Kansas City Chiefs have played it safe with QB Alex Smith through the first two preseason games, as he has reportedly looked downfield very little. He has yet to target WR Dwayne Bowe during the preseason.
Sun, 04 Aug 2013 20:05:58 -0700
The Kansas City Chiefs released their first depth chart Sunday, Aug. 4, and WRs Donnie Avery and Dexter McCluster are listed as backups behind WRs Dwayne Bowe and Jonathan Baldwin. However, Avery and McCluster are frequently used in the slot or in multi-wideout formations.
Fantasy Tip: Avery and McCluster might have more fantasy potential than Baldwin, who has been rather disappointing over his first two NFL seasons. Still, each of the three should be considered WR4 or flex fantasy options.
Sun, 04 Aug 2013 20:04:47 -0700
The Kansas City Chiefs released their first depth chart Sunday, Aug. 4, and WR Jonathan Baldwin is listed as a starter opposite WR Dwayne Bowe.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Baldwin is able to hold off charges from Donnie Avery and Dexter McCluster during the preseason, he will need to be more consistent if he hopes to keep the gig. Baldwin is worth a flier as a WR4 or flex play, but don't rely upon him for anything else at this juncture.
