Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe diagnosed with concussion, unlikely to play

Dwayne Bowe @DwayneBowe82 left practice early Thursday and was later listed on the injury report with a concussion. HC Andy Reid has intimated that his starters will rest, considering that the Chiefs are locked into the 5th seed. Given his injury and circumstance, expect Bowe to watch Sunday's finale from the sidelines.

Fantasy Analysis:

We already knew that Andy Reid intended to rest some starters, all this news does is allow you to bench Dwayne Bowe with confidence. Self described "Offensive Weapon" Dexter McCluster @dextermccluster expects to enter fantasy relevance this week, alongside RB Knile Davis @BoobieKnile_Era.

If you belong to a league that has a meaningful game week 17, you are already aware of Andy Reid's plans. Dexter McCluster is an interesting case this week. Alex Smith isn't known for utilizing his receivers, but if Chase Daniel @ChaseDaniel gets extensive time at QB, it might be wise for Kansas City to let Daniel stretch his arm a little. Considering McCluster's ability to make plays in space, think of him as a boom/bust WR3 this week and a resonable flex play in PPR leagues.

Thoughtful Jamaal Charles @jcharles25 owners who claimed Knile Davis weeks ago, will now have a great opportunity to start him.
