After turning in his first double digit fantasy point performance since Week 4 (and second straight productive game), it seems as if Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver, Dwayne Bowe, may be getting his disappointing 2013 season back on track. Targeted a season-high 14 times in the Chiefs loss to the Broncos Sunday night, Bowe finished with 57 yards and a touchdown.
With his performance on Sunday, it seems as if Bowe is finally developing some positive chemistry with quarterback, Alex Smith. Bowe has led the Chiefs in targets in the past two weeks, and is averaging 62 yards per game. While this is a far cry from the type of production we are used to seeing from Bowe, Bowe’s production over the last two games may be a sign of what’s to come in the season’s final six weeks.
If Bowe was dropped in your league, now may be the perfect time to pick up the receiver. Not only does Bowe seem to be finding his groove, but Kansas City’s final six opponents of the regular season all rank in the lower half of the league in defending the pass. With two games against the Chargers, and one against Denver, Oakland, and Washington left on the schedule, the Chiefs may look to air it out in these games.
While it is unreasonable to expect Bowe to perform as a high WR2 from here on out, the favorability of his schedule could put him in the low WR2/high WR3 range from here on out. As the fantasy playoffs approach, Bowe could be a wise pickup that pays off during the season’s stretch run.
