Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe had a tough day at practice on Wednesday, dropping a pair of passes and deflected another for an interception.
That’s hardly an indication that Bowe won’t rebound this season. But he hasn’t had a great camp and the Chiefs may be guilty of wishful thinking when it comes to their top wide receiver.
Bowe in September will turn 30, the age when the skills of many receivers start their decline. Could it be that process has already started with Bowe?
We’ll find out soon. Chiefs wide receivers coach David Culley said Bowe is in much better shape than he was last summer. Bowe said he’s in the best shape of his career.
Bowe finished the season as the #44 fantasy WR, but was the #26 wideout from Week 11 to Week 16. (The Chiefs rested their starters in Week 17.) He had the 34th-most targets on the season, and he posted 8-150-1 against the Colts in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, so there is some reason for optimism heading into 2014. His 8th round ADP makes his risk palatable.
