2015 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
Bowe has delivered three straight weak seasons after posting three 1,000-yard receiving campaigns in his first five years as a pro. Last year, Dwayne posted 60 catches on 95 targets for 754 yards and was held out of the end zone. He missed the first game of 2014 due a suspension stemming from a failed drug test. Bowe had only two games with the Chiefs last year in which he saw double-digit targets. He had a four-game stretch during the middle of the season during which he caught 25 passes for nearly 300 yards, but Dwayne had only one game in his last seven starts with more than three catches. He'll try to fill the void created by the loss of Gordon, but he may deliver only 60 cents on the dollar. He has the most TD upside of any of Cleveland's receivers despite getting shut out last year. Last year, the Browns completed 190 passes to the WR position for 2,643 yards and seven TDs. Bowe can't help but catch at least one-third of this production, which comes to 63 catches for 881 yards with a handful of touchdowns. He was the No. 36 wideout in FFWC leagues last season, but he's more of a WR4 or a deep flex option. He'll have more value if given a greater number of targets.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Dwayne Bowe will be active for Week 4 according to head coach Mike Pettine. Bowe has only been active for one of three games so far this season due to an alleged hamstring injury. Apparently the Browns realized they can only pretend that Bowe is injured for so long before we got wise to them. Then Bowe decided to lie to America as if we don't have eyes. "It starts Sunday. I can't wait to go out there and showcase my talent and be a ringleader for the guys and go out there and bring home a win … People say that?" Bowe asked, with a chuckle after being told people are saying he was a waste. "I never even heard that. I know what goes on in this building. Those guys love me … They know I'm a teammate, they know I'm a great player. Once I hit the field running, you guys will love it … Every time I am on the field I'm trying to step on the gas. Whenever the ball comes my way that's my opportunity to step on the gas. So whatever opportunity I do get in the game, run block or whatever, I'm going out there and do my job … People in this building know in practice from watching every day the plays I make and I'm just waiting for it to be called in the game. It's going to happen. Just have patience."
Well, that was a hoot. It's time for all you Bowe owners to get excited. Now you can enjoy his .6 points on your bench. Maybe he can win you some crazy tiebreaker. There is absolutely zero reason to have Bowe on your roster. If it were possible he should be kicked off your waiver wire. He offers nothing to anybody in any format. It was shocking when people were even drafting him this summer. Between him and Victor Cruz, it really boggles the mind how they were climbing draft boards.

|8.05||#28 World Ranked - I had to hold my nose on this one. Bowe has had over 100 targets each of the last four years. After 15 TD's in 2010, he's had 13 TD's the next three years. This is hope for this inconsistent player to turn in a strong year. If not I'll look elsewhere.|
