As the Kansas City Chiefs face the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football on NBC, it’s clear they’re going to need their impact players to actually make an impact. There’s no one better for the Chiefs to turn to than Dwayne Bowe, their Pro Bowl receiver who consistently has a nose for the end zone. That said, Numberfire predicts that Bowe will have a strong fantasy day as well with 8.24 overall points.
Bowe has another great season in the works thus far in 2011 with 48 catches for 750 yards and 4 touchdowns. That last number is a far cry from leading the NFL last season in the same category but it’s also clear that the Kansas City offense is far less dynamic without Jamaal Charles and Tony Moeaki available. Add in the fact that the Kansas City quarterback situation is up in the air with Matt Cassel’s injury and subsequent Kyle Orton pick-up and you have a situation that’s hard to gauge.
Our prediction for Dwayne Bowe: 10 catches for 113 yards and 1 touchdown.
