Dwayne Bowe is listed as inactive prior to Sunday's matchup with the Ravens.
Bowe saw some game action Week 4 against San Diego, but proved to be far down the list in the pecking order for targets under quarterback Josh McCown. Despite the big offseason contract, Bowe has been targeted just twice this season, as various injuries have limited the 6-2 wideout through the first four weeks. His absence Sunday doesn't appear to be injury-related, however, so it wouldn't be wise to expect much fantasy production from Bowe moving forward.
Hugely disappointing Cleveland Browns veteran receiver Dwayne Bowe was targeted only once Sunday in San Diego. He remains without a reception this year.
Bowe made the active roster for just the second time this season, but was truly a non-factor in the passing attack. He did see a few snaps, but was dominated by Travis Benjamin, Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel in terms of playing time.
Even with Brian Hartline (thigh) limited in the contest, it appears the Browns preferred to go with Gabriel over their $9 million man. Despite the fact that Cleveland was forced to call nearly twice as many pass plays as run plays, Bowe did not have a role. That doesn't bode well for his Fantasy value moving forward.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is listed as active Sunday against the San Diego Chargers . Bowe could end up working his way back into fantasy relevance in the coming weeks, but we'd like to see him get a full and productive outing in before recommending him as a lineup option.
Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine indicated that wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is expected to be active Sunday against the San Diego Chargers , the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.
Bowe was inactive last Sunday against the Oakland Raiders despite not being listed on the Browns' injury report. That said, offensive coordinator John DeFilippo suggested that Bowe -- who dealt with a hamstring issue before his season debut in Week 2 -- was held out because of an injury.
In any case, while Bowe could end up providing the Browns with some return on their $9 million (guaranteed) investment in time, we'd like to see the wideout get a full and productive game in before recommending him as more than a roster stash.
That the Cleveland Browns are not getting their money's worth from veteran wide receiver Dwayne Bowe could be nominated for Understatement of the Year. He signed a two-year deal in the offseason worth $9 million guaranteed. He has exactly zero catches through three games and was a healthy scratch in Week 3.
In fact, Bowe has twice been inactive. It has been claimed he's still dealing with a hamstring injury, but he sustained it in early August. Meanwhile, embattled general manager Ray Farmer is getting criticized roundly for signing Bowe.
Mike Pettine, however, has claimed that the team has not considered releasing him. "Dwayne will help us, but he's just not there yet," Pettine told ESPN. "...The setback (with his hamstring) that he suffered during training camp, it's just hard to make those reps up, especially now that we're in a practice week."
Bowe caught 60 passes for 754 yards for Kansas City last season, but did not score. He peaked in 2010 with 72 receptions for 1,162 yards and a career-high 15 touchdowns.
