Some of the coaches in Kansas City had to have a word with Dwayne Bowe about his stated goal of leading the league in receiving. While they appreciate Bowe’s enthusiasm and ambition, they want him to understand Andy Reid’s offense doesn’t work that way. Never has. Probably never will. Reid likes to spread the ball around to multiple targets and take what the defense gives them. He won’t be looking to use Bowe the way the Lions use Calvin Johnson. And you might want to keep that in mind during your Fantasy Football drafts.
As a Dwayne Bowe dynasty owner, this is a little worrisome for me. Bowe is still the best receiver they have in KC (by a mile), but it’s worth remembering that his biggest seasons required a large percentage of team targets.
This is worth looking into further so look out for a post on distribution of pass targets later in the week.
