Dwayne Bowe Injury: Chiefs WR Remains Poor Fantasy Option Despite Being Active
Dwayne Bowe will be on the field for the Kansas City Chiefs this week, but he should not be in your fantasy lineup.
The wide receiver was declared active for the team's Week 8 game against the Cleveland Browns despite dealing with a pulled groin, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports:

On the other hand, Eric Karabell of ESPN provides everything you need to know with this tweet:

The talented player entered the year with high expectations, but he has only managed 295 receiving yards on 25 catches in seven games this season. Last week, he finished with a season highs of five catches for 66 yards.
What we have seen from the Chiefs this season is an extremely conservative strategy led by quarterback Alex Smith. In an effort to reduce turnovers, Smith has been quick to find his check-down targets like Donnie Avery and running back Jamaal Charles.
As a result, Bowe has been the forgotten man in the offense, which has not helped out fantasy owners who drafted him early.
Going up against shutdown cornerback Joe Haden in Week 8 will certainly not change this trend. He should remain on the bench in all fantasy leagues.
