Dwayne Bowe wants to play leaner in 2014

Kansas City Star - [Full Article]

There’s a belief that Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe, who is listed at 6 feet 2 and 221 pounds, could take a major step toward doing just that by having a strong offseason of conditioning, something that Bowe himself acknowledged during the radio interview.

“One thing I want to work on — my endurance,” Bowe said. “I was really, really tired that last game.”

Bowe said he plans on changing the way he eats, though he didn’t provide details. He said he played this year between 212 and 214 pounds but hopes to report to camp a little lighter to better fit the offense.

“I probably want to play at 208 and try to be as quick and swift as possible, because that’s the kind of receivers that Andy had when he was in Philly,” Bowe said. “I’d like to be more explosive and faster than I was this season. I just want to work on my work ethic a little more and become quicker and faster so I can be like DeSean Jackson and those speedy, quick guys.”

Fantasy Impact:

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.) Bowe also posted 8-150-1 against the Colts in the Wildcard round of the playoffs, so there is some reason for optimism heading into 2014. Bowe also revealed that he has a small crack in his foot (which he calls a third-degree sprain) that won't require surgery.

Chiefs starting offense inactive in meaningless game
Sunday, December 29, 2013, 3:29pm

Chiefs Inactives
Branden Albert T
Dwayne Bowe WR
Jamaal Charles RB
Tamba Hali OLB
Derrick Johnson ILB
Dontari Poe NT
Alex Smith QB

Fantasy Impact:

As outlined in our Who's Motivated? article this week, the Chiefs have nothing to play for today with their playoff spot locked up. As a result Alex Smith, Jamaal Charles & Dwayne Bowe are inactive. Knile Davis should see the bulk of the carries with Cyrus Gray also in the mix. Chase Daniel will start at QB. Avoid all Chiefs if possible as this is an unpredictable fantasy situation.

Chiefs could rest guys Week 17
Monday, December 23, 2013, 1:52pm

Terez Paylor on Twitter - [Full Article]

Chiefs HC Andy Reid says he hasn't decided what he going to do as far as resting guys against San Diego. He said he's had some success doing it in the past, though.

Fantasy Impact:

Even if guys like Jamaal Charles, Alex Smith and Dwayne Bowe play, it could only be a half, making them risky plays if your fantasy league has meaningful games in Week 17. The Chiefs are locked into the fifth seed as a wild card team.

ESPN - [Full Article]

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe will start in the team's quest to remain unbeaten and take control of the AFC West against the Broncos on Sunday night in Denver despite his arrest during the bye week for marijuana possession.

Fantasy Impact:

Bowe hasn't done much this season but the Chiefs will need him to produce on Monday night if they hope to beat the Broncos. He's a WR4/flex option at best.

Dwayne Bowe arrested for speeding, possession of controlled substance

Fox 4 Kansas City - [Full Article]

Riverside police confirmed to FOX 4 Tuesday morning that an officer arrested Chiefs’ wide receiver Dwayne Bowe on Sunday for speeding and possession of marijuana.

Fantasy Impact:

Inside a black bag the officer discovered the wallet of the driver and vehicle owner, Bowe, and two containers that had 6.6 grams and 3.8 grams respectively of what is believed to be marijuana in them. A black backpack was also found with a container that had 4.2 grams of what is believed to be marijuana in it. However, one of the passengers, George A. Thompson, said the backpack belonged to him. Bowe's court date is Dec. 18. Bowe is coming off one of his better games in Week 9 where he had seven catches for 67 yards on 12 targets. All were season highs. However he's not been a very productive fantasy player despite the Chiefs being 9-0. Bowe likely wont miss any time this year as Andy Reid and the Chiefs let this drag out in the courts. But remember, Bowe was suspended four games in 2009 for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Sports Illustrated - [Full Article]

To beat the good teams, the Chiefs are going to have to start stretching the field. Defenses know QB Alex Smith is overly conservative, so they’re dropping a safety down and playing a lot of man.

The Chiefs have a big problem with receiver Dwayne Bowe. Not sure what has happened to him, but he lacks explosion and can’t beat man coverage anymore. Defenses don’t fear him at all.

Fantasy Impact:

Bowe has been pretty invisible so far this season outside of a garbage-time TD against the Giants. It doesn't help that Smith tends to check down more than throw down field. We rank Bowe 33rd this week, which is equal to a high-end WR4 in 10 team leagues.

Kansas City Star - [Full Article]

The Kansas City Star's Sam Mellinger set the over/unders for a few Chiefs statistics, including...

Jamaal Charles touches: 280

Dwayne Bowe catches: 65

Fantasy Impact:

We project Charles for 313 total touches; he averaged 298 during the 2010 and 2012 seasons. We project Bowe for 75 catches, which is his pace over the past three seasons. We'll take the over on both.
