Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said WR Dwayne Bowe will start in the team's Week 11 game even though he was arrested earlier in the week.
Huddle Up: It seems his arrest might not affect him for a while, depending on if/when his case goes to trial. You shouldn't start him with confidence, but he has a decent matchup this week.

ESPN.com's Ed Werder doesn't believe Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will be disciplined for his marijuana arrest until the case is adjudicated, meaning it isn't likely to affect his availability for Week 11 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: The wheels of justice turn slowly, so the Chiefs should have Bowe at their disposal this weekend. It's a favorable matchup on paper, but Bowe has treated those "favorable matchup on paper" situations like an unhousebroken puppy thus far this season.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe was arrested Sunday, Nov. 10, and was charged with speeding and possession of marijuana. Bowe was clocked moving at 48 mph in a 35 mph zone. He has posted bond and has a court date set for Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Not sure how long it will take the wheels of justice to spin in the NFL, but you can bet there's a visit with Roger Goodell in Bowe's future. He hasn't been much of a fantasy factor this season anyway, so if he is suspended it won't be a significant loss.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (groin) will be able to play Week 8 even though he is listed as questionable for the game.
Huddle Up: Bowe has a tough match-up drawing Cleveland corner Joe Haden this week. Given that Bowe is hurting, been a disappointment this year and has to deal with Haden, this wouldn't be a bad week to leave him on your bench if you have other options to choose from.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe has lacked explosion during the early going, and he has struggled to beat man coverage, giving the team a big problem.
Huddle Up: We can't claim to have authored "Football For Dummies," but when a WR is struggling against coverage, he's typically not having the best of seasons. Bowe's fantasy owners can vouch for that as their man doesn't have a game so far with more than 4 catches or 58 yards despite K.C.'s 5-0 start. Maybe a shaky Raider secondary will prove to be the antidote Sunday.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe said he likes the offense that head coach Andy Reid has brought to the team. "Throwing the ball deep, that's something we haven't done in the past so I'm excited right now. The play calling is totally different from last year. It's not check downs or putting it in the running back's hands. This guy likes to go down the field, take the top off (the defense) and that's something we haven't done in the past, put up a lot of points. This season he said we're going to blow out the scoreboard and that's something I'm looking forward to," Bowe said.
Huddle Up: What wide receiver isn't going to like Andy Reid's throw early, throw often approach? The potential for more balls in the air has to boost Bowe's fantasy prospects as well.

Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said he believes WR Dwayne Bowe has the skills to be one of the top wide receivers in the NFL and that Bowe is looking for to the challenge of becoming one. "He's a receiver and receivers have unique personalities. But he's a very talented guy. We sat and talked. I told him it's his responsibility to uphold his end of the bargain. He said he understood the challenge ahead and he totally embraced that challenge," Dorsey said.
Huddle Up: Bowe has harped about wanting to be paid like an elite receiver, and now he is. He also has a new pass-friendly coach and offense and a new quarterback, so many of the things standing in the way of previous success have been removed. In other words, time to put up or shut up.

The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to terms with WR Dwayne Bowe on a new five-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Andy Reid has his go-to receiver and the free agent market thins a bit at the receiver position. Bowe should see an uptick in opportunities as KC transitions from their previous run-dominated offense to Reid's pass-happy approach.

The Kansas City Chiefs likely will place the franchise tag on impending free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe if the two sides are not able to reach a long-term agreement by Monday, March 4.
Huddle Up: Sounds like Andy Reid wants to keep Bowe around to anchor Alex Smith's receiving corps. Hey, if he can coexist with T.O., working with Bowe should be a snap.

The Kansas City Chiefs are working on a long-term deal with impending free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe but could place the franchise tag on him if a deal is not reached by Monday, March 4. Bowe would get a one-year, $11.4 million tender if he receives the franchise tag because it will be the second consecutive year to receive the tag and would get 20 percent raise. Bowe made $9.4 million this season.
Huddle Up: $11.4 mil sounds a little pricey for Bowe, but considering that the Chiefs' next-best returning receiver is the disappointing Jonathan Baldwin (20 catches for 325 yards & 1 TD in 2012), it's in K.C.'s best interests to keep Bowe around.

Former Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli said he believes the Chiefs will place the franchise tag on impending free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe and will look to replace impending free-agent OT Branden Albert either in free agency or the 2013 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: This set of moves would make the most sense as K.C.'s WR cupboard would be absolutely barren if Bowe goes, while Texas A&M standout Luke Joeckel would be a solid, No. 1 overall pick if Albert leaves.

The Kansas City Chiefs are actively working on a new contract for impending free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe and have met with his representatives. The two sides are expected to continue to talk over the next few weeks.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs have plenty of other questions to answer without letting Bowe go and leaving their WR cupboard completely bare. Look for a deal to get done.

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe will surely receive a lot of interest if he hits the open market; however, one league scout said he has reservations. "I am scared to death of Dwayne Bowe. Like him a lot, but not sure what we'd be buying if we signed him. Too much baggage," the scout said.
Huddle Up: It's no shock that wide receivers come with baggage; Chad Johnson, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss... there's a solid precedent here. The question is, how much will that baggage reduce Bowe's offseason price tag and will it limit his suitors?

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe, who will likely generate plenty of interest in the offseason, seems more likely to re-sign with the Chiefs now that there is a new regime.
Huddle Up: K.C. needs Bowe more than the other way around, and the Chiefs can start by getting a semi-decent QB in place.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid could look to re-sign impending free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe in the offseason as Reid has not been afraid to pay for offensive players in the past.
Huddle Up: On the other hand, Reid spent much of his time in Philly cobbling together receiving corps so he may not want to back up the Brinks truck for Bowe. One look at what's left sans Brinks should convince him otherwise.

The Kansas City Chiefs are unlikely to reach a long-term extension with impending free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe this offseason.
Huddle Up: Hopefully Bowe will get out of quarterback purgatory before he turns into Larry Fitzgerald, that poor soul who might spend his entire prime without a viable quarterback. His fantasy value should go up virtually anywhere he lands; the better the offensive situation, the more fantasy points he will score.

The Kansas City Chiefs have placed WR Dwayne Bowe (ribs) on Injured Reserve. In a corresponding move, the team signed practice squad OL Rich Ranglin to their active roster. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: No shocker here as Bowe did suffer fractured ribs a week ago. Jonathan Baldwin, who has 18 catches for 265 yards and a TD, is now the No. 1 WR in K.C., but it's definitely a less-than-ideal situation given Baldwin's inconsistency and the Chiefs' continuing QB issues.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (ribs) is unavailable in Week 15, but head coach Romeo Crennel wouldn't confirm Bowe is done for the season. 'I'm going to wait a couple more days and they're going to give me some definitive results on some of the tests they're running,' Crennel said Wednesday, Dec. 12. 'If I determine that he can't play, then we'll put him on (Injured Reserve).'
Huddle Up: For all fantasy intents and purposes, the Chiefs' top pass-catcher is done for the season, and owners should already have lined up other options.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe has been ruled out for the rest of the season, as a league source said Bowe will be placed on season-ending Injured Reserve after suffering two broken ribs in the Week 14 loss against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Enjoy Jonathan Baldwin and Terrance Copper. Here's hoping those ribs won't limit Bowe as he's packing up his locker; as an unrestricted free agent, he has in all likelihood played his last game as a Chief.
