Dwayne Bowe's Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 11

Dwayne Bowe seemed ready to play coming out of the bye week, as he had a solid performance in Week 11.

The Kansas City Chiefs were down 17-10 against the Denver Broncos coming out of halftime, but Bowe was still having a solid game.  He had four receptions for 57 yards and a touchdown, giving him 11 fantasy points in ESPN's standard scoring leagues.  However, that was all he was able to do, as the Broncos shut him down for the rest of the game.

While the Chiefs were undefeated entering this game, Bowe hadn't been an incredibly productive receiver, catching just 33 passes for 369 yards and two touchdowns.  The passing game hadn't been very flashy this year, as Alex Smith had thrown for just 1,919 yards and nine touchdowns before Sunday Night Football.

This is just Bowe's third game with at least 10 fantasy points, and he's also had two games with zero points.  His inconsistency has certainly hurt him, and the balanced offensive attack has limited the opportunities for him to get the ball.

The good news for Bowe is that the Chiefs will play some weaker pass defenses, including games against the San Diego Chargers, Washington Redskins and Oakland Raiders, as the season winds down.  Although he's certainly not the top-tier receiver he once was, Bowe is still a solid WR2 or WR3 in almost all leagues.
