Week 1 vs. HOU
Receiving: 3 / 42 / 0 on 7 targets
Rookie Dwayne Bowe came in as one of the primary targets for Huard after Eddie Kennison was forced from the contest on the first Chiefs' offensive play. Bowe caught three of the seven passes thrown his way for 42 yards but should have done better. He has a promising future and could be a valuable pick up in keeper leagues.
Week 2 vs. CHI
Receiving: 2 / 22 / 1 on 3 targets
Bowe got the start in the place of the injured Eddie Kennison and performed well. Bowe caught one touchdown pass and had a 36 yard touchdown called back in the third quarter on an illegal shift penalty.
Week 3 vs. MIN
Receiving: 5 / 71 / 1 on 7 targets
Bowe had a nice game, with a touchdown catch and being targeted frequently in the second half. He was not targeted at all until the Chiefs' first possession after halftime. His first reception was on a second and 13, Huard found him wide open for 17 yards. Later on the same drive, Huard was hit as he threw to Bowe up the sideline, but the ball fluttered and two defenders were able to get to the ball at the same time as Bowe. Two possessions later, Bowe made a nice reception, jumping back for the ball for a 15 yard reception. Later on the same drive, Huard threw deep to Bowe, who had to jump and reach for the ball. Bowe had the ball go through his hands, and he probably should have caught it. Huard came back to Bowe on the next play for 17 yards. After another reception on the same drive, Huard threw Bowe a jump ball in the endzone, and Bowe pulled the ball away from the defender for a touchdown.
Week 4 vs. SD
Receiving: 8 / 164 / 1 on 10 targets
Amazingly, the rookie was the only Kansas City wide receiver to see a passing target in his direction --- and he registered a game high eleven. Not only that, but once the ball came in his direction, he knew what to do with it. He showed great athleticism on a tough leaping catch late in the first half, and some nice footwork after the catch to try and get a few extra yards. And the second half simply belonged to Bowe. He made a tough grab going over the middle and holding onto the ball despite taking a huge shot from the DB, and that was only his second best play of the half. With the teams tied at 16 and Kansas City facing a third down and 19, Huard found Bowe on the slant for a 51 yard scoring strike. It was nearly a carbon copy of the play the Packers used last week from Brett Favre to Greg Jennings that beat the Chargers, except this one came on the right side of the field. If Bowe's performance in Week 3 wasn't enough to alert fantasy owners to his impending impact, this game certainly will.
Week 5 vs. JAX
Receiving: 4 / 70 / 0 on 8 targets
Bowe was not thrown a pass until there were less than two minutes remaining in the first half. He took advantage of his opportunities in the second half by running good intermediate routes, showing good hands in traffic and using his strength to gain extra yards after being tackled. He also got open deep and made a good catch, and showed an excellent package of size, speed and route-running ability. His numbers may have been even better as he was overthrow despite being open on a couple of plays.
Week 6 vs. CIN
Receiving: 4 / 46 / 0 on 7 targets
Bowe did not have much success against the Cincinnati secondary, only catching four balls for 46 yards. He caught a few passes for first downs, but failed to get into the end zone or make much of an impact like he has done in previous weeks.
Week 7 vs. OAK
Receiving: 3 / 84 / 0 on 4 targets
A case could easily be made for rookie Dwayne Bowe as the most exciting player on the field. He has fantastic ability hauling in throws anywhere near him. He caught three passes for 84 yards, but his most impressive feat was stripping the ball from a defender on an overthrown pass, thus preventing an interception.
Week 9 vs. GB
Receiving: 0 / 0 / 0 on 1 targets
Bowe was only targeted one time, on the second possession. He was hit hard on the play and dropped the ball. The only other ball thrown his way was on a two point conversion attempt.
Week 10 vs. DEN
Receiving: 9 / 105 / 0 on 13 targets
Bowe continues his phenomenal rookie season as he pulled in nine of the thirteen passes thrown his way for 105 yards. He has tremendous ability to get open and to catch any ball despite the defenders and the accuracy of the pass.
Week 11 vs. IND
Receiving: 7 / 64 / 1 on 10 targets
Bowe was the favorite target of Brodie Croyle. His early catches were on quick passes close to the line of scrimmage that he was able to turn into five to seven yard gains. In the second half he was able to get open on crossing routes and provided one of the key catches on a third and one play on the lone touchdown drive. He ended the drive with an acrobatic touchdown reception when Croyle threw the ball to a place where only Bowe had the best chance of catching it. Bowe showed great body control by leaping up to catch the ball and get both feet down in bounds.
Week 12 vs. OAK
Receiving: 4 / 63 / 0 on 7 targets
Rookie Dwayne Bowe is now known by other teams as Croyle's favorite target and he is receiving extra coverage because of it. Bowe is a legitimate and dangerous weapon for the Chiefs. He pulled in four of the seven balls thrown his way for 63 yards.
Week 13 vs. SD
Receiving: 5 / 55 / 0 on 11 targets
After Bowe's last meeting with the Chargers, a game which he put up spectacular numbers, it appeared that San Diego wanted to ensure he wasn't going to roam free all game long again. He did manage to catch five passes, but none of them went very far and his long gain was just 22 yards. That means his other four receptions went for just 33 yards, which illustrates just how well the Chargers did at containing him and preventing the big play. He did have a chance to salvage his afternoon and put up bigger stats, but a pass from Tyler Thigpen at the San Diego 45 yard line on Kansas City's final possession went through his hands near the goal line for an incompletion.
Week 14 vs. DEN
Receiving: 2 / 35 / 0 on 6 targets
Bowe remains a favorite for Croyle. However he was constantly double teamed and mugged as soon as the ball arrived. The Broncos defensive plan obviously included keeping Bowe from catching the ball.
Week 15 vs. TEN
Receiving: 5 / 64 / 0 on 9 targets
Rookie Dwayne Bowe had a couple of drops but still showed great flashes. He hauled in five of the nine passes sent his way for 64 yards. Bowe can now be counted on every game for production.
Week 16 vs. DET
Receiving: 8 / 97 / 1 on 11 targets
Bowe had an excellent game as he pulled in eight of the 13 passes intended for him, picking up 97 yards. One of his catches was a hotly contested 34 yarder that he grabbed in the end zone and held onto despite a Lions' defender also having grabbed it. They struggled and Bowe clearly held onto it all the way to the ground.
Week 17 vs. NYJ
Receiving: 1 / 13 / 0 on 3 targets
Dwayne Bowe was limited in a big way today as he only saw three targets, bringing in one of them for 13 yards. The Jets secondary did an excellent job blanketing him and preventing him from making any big plays
