Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the WR position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
The addition of ex-Eagles coach Andy Reid and his West Coast Offense is just what the doctor ordered for Bowe and the Kansas City offense. The addition of former 49ers quarterback Alex Smith mercifully puts an end to the Matt Cassel era and has Bowe’s arrow pointing upward. At the point in your draft where you’re going to consider Bowe there is very little downside and big upside.
Positives Improved as the season went on, has good rapport with his QB, and is team's clear number one option. Motivated contract year. Negatives Team upgraded the receiving group as a whole and I question whether he can score as often, but then again those were first round numbers last season too. Draft Strategy Thrilled to see Bowe in the third round. Taking Vick is not the hindrance I thought it might be, but we will see come the next two rounds! (Contributed by: Pat_Smith)
Round 3, Pick 1
Positives Target, Targets, Targets, Bow is among the top when I comes to targets (133 last year). Consistently over a 1000yds and on average will get 7-8 TD's. so a 80+ catch 1200yd 10TD year very possible. New Rookie J. Baldwin should enable Bowe to run with less double teams. I expect receptions to increase Negatives Cannot duplicate the # of TD's from last year Draft Strategy I went WR-WR at the turn rounds 2.12-3.01. I was Zeroed in on this strategy considering I think I gan get value at RB later and expect a mini run on receivers after me.
I wanted someone with a lot of targets (check), elite talent(check), and a good offense(check). I passed on Miles Austin who I also heavily considered, and Mike Williams (TBB). Mike Williams just doesn't get the targets and Austin appears to be target #2 in Dallas (behind Witten). So I went with #1 receiver Bowe. (Contributed by: Mad_Puppy)
Round 3, Pick 6
Positives With another year together and a few more pieces to the puzzle, I think the Chiefs offense should be a little more reliable and consistent this year. Addition of Breaston should only help keep Bowe from getting doubled. Negatives Can run a little hot and cold. Draft Strategy After going RB/RB out of the gate, I needed a decent WR and Bowe fit that bill. Not a stud but should perform at or better this draft position. [Blue 5] (Contributed by: Scoefield)
