An afterthought in the
His matchup Week 14 at Washington would seemingly set him up for more. After all, the Redskins rank 27th against the pass, allowing 265.3 yards per game, and have surrendered the 13th-most Fantasy points to wide receivers this season. But keep in mind the Chiefs threw the ball as much the last three weeks as they've done all season, having to keep pace with the numbers Peyton Manning (twice) and Philip Rivers were putting up. They prefer to win with defense, and this matchup gives them a chance to get back to doing that.
Which would only cut into Bowe's modest production. Simply because he's the team's preferred receiving option, he's a good bet for 50 yards no matter how the game unfolds, but expecting him to take a step forward would be unwise. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all rank Bowe outside of their top 24 wide receivers for this week despite the favorable matchup.
Bowe caught just three passes for 56 yards. He nearly caught a touchdown pass in the second quarter, but the play was overturned after an illegal formation penalty. Bowe led the team with seven targets. Two of Bowe's catches came on the team's first offensive drive. He did not pick up his third catch until there was under three minutes remaining in the game.
Bowe will face Washington Week 14.
If you are looking at
We know -- it seems very odd seeing how Bowe hasn't scored in consecutive games since scoring in three straight from Week 3-5 in 2011. But Bowe has been playing very well lately and might be able to extend his touchdown streak to three games Week 13 vs. Denver.
Bowe's touchdown streak began in Week 11 at Denver, as he totaled four catches for 57 yards. Low-yardage totals, unfortunately, is one of the more disappointing storylines from Bowe's 2013 season. He hasn't surpassed 100 receiving yards and is averaging a career-low 43.4 receiving yards per game.
Wide receivers are averaging 181.5 receiving yards and 24.6 Fantasy points per week against Denver. Wide receivers have totaled 12 touchdowns in 11 games, with Dez Bryant and Julian Edelman being the only two receivers with multiple-touchdown games.
You probably aren't going to get a standout performance from Bowe, but there is a good chance he could continue his touchdown streak Week 13, so look to him as a low-end No. 2/high-end No. 3 Fantasy wide receiver.
Bowe was somewhat limited against San Diego. Though he caught five of his six targets, Bowe went for just 51 yards. With the team fighting to get back in the game, Bowe caught a 5 yard touchdown pass with 1:28 left in the contest. The Chiefs couldn't hold the lead, so Bowe was unable to play the hero. It's the second straight game Bowe has found the end zone.
He'll take on the Broncos Week 13.
