WR Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs

Pros: Before 2009, Bowe was an up-and-comer. He tallied 156 receptions in his first two seasons, increasing his yardage and touchdown totals in his second year. As the No. 1 receiver, he is often targeted double-digit times per game. A year after wholesale changes in Kansas City, Bowe has some started to build chemistry with quarterback Matt Cassel. Cassel said he has high expectations for the duo in their second year together.

Cons: The Chiefs' passing game is a project. Bowe's career yards-per-catch average (12.8) isn't impressive, and he doesn't score a lot of touchdowns (5.3/year). He was suspended four games last year for violation of the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. One more pop and he is gone a full year. Bowe, at times, found himself in the dog house of head coach Todd Haley last year, too, due to lack of effort and focus.

Fantasy tip: Bowe is typically being selected in the fifth round of fantasy football drafts but isn't a player we're too crazy about. His ceiling isn't very high. Those in PPR leagues will find him more valuable, but we'd ideally take him as a No. 3 fantasy receiver.
