Bowe (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Steelers. Bowe had his best game of the season Week 9, catching three of his five targets for a total of 31 yards. This was likely due to the absence of both Andrew Hawkins and Brian Hartline, who were inactive for that contest due to concussions. With both of the aforementioned options active for Week 10's matchup, Bowe will return to the bottom of the depth chart and likely fantasy obscurity.
Bowe is active for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals. Bowe has been a healthy scratch in three straight contests, but will get an opportunity to play while Andrew Hawkins is sidelined with a concussion. Despite the active status, Bowe will likely serve as the No. 4 receiver, sitting behind Travis Benjamin, Brian Hartline and Taylor Gabriel on the depth chart.
With Andrew Hawkins out this week, Bowe appears on track to be active Sunday against the Cardinals, after having logged three straight healthy scratches, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer relays via coach Mike Pettine that Bowe has gotten better as he puts more distance behind the hamstring issue that slowed him earlier this season. While the veteran wideout remains a very speculative play Sunday, it's plausible that this could finally be the week that Bowe is finally incorporated into the Browns' offense.
Browns catchless wideout Dwayne Bowe is a healthy scratch Sunday against the Rams. Bowe will be inactive for the third straight week, confirming an earlier report that he is "entrenched" as the No. 5 receiver on the depth chart. Even Marlon Moore was activated for the contest, as he's able to make special teams contributions that Bowe cannot. It appears more evident than ever that the team threw away the $9 millions spent on Bowe.
Browns highly disappointing wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is not expected to earn a spot in the wide receiver rotation any time soon, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. "The top four guys are entrenched," head coach Mike Pettine stated. Despite a contract that contains $9 million in guaranteed money, Bowe has now been a healthy scratch in back-to-back weeks. Bowe began the 2015 season hampered by a hamstring injury, and through Week 6, has been unable to make up the lost time.
