Will Cassel Maintain Success from Patriots

Last season Dwayne Bowe took another step to becoming a top-10 fantasy receiver, by posting 86 receptions, 1,022 yards and 7 touchdowns. All and all this was a very productive season for a receiver with heavy quarterback change early.

This year will be Bowe's third season in the NFL and he won't have tight end Tony Gonzalez to take coverage away. Also he will have a new quarterback in Matt Cassel, who came over via trade from the Patriots.

Another benefit is that he now has the Cardinals offensive coordinator as a head coach. This will change their offense from run first to pass first.


Dwayne Bowe's Fantasy Football Value in 2009

Some feel Matt Cassel was a one year wonder but even still, Matt will throw the football a lot this year and Dwayne is going to get his. No. 82 will probably even see more opportunity's inside the red zone for touchdowns, now that Gonzalez is gone to Atlanta.

Look for Bowe to have a better season than last year. While he may not be a top 10 fantasy receiver this year, he will be close. Look for around 1,200 yards receiving and 8 touchdowns in his third year as a pro. Bowe should be selected no lower than the sixth round in your fantasy football draft.
