Disagree on this one.. I think D. Thomas will have a better year. The difference being the QB's. Has anyone seen Cassel play lately? Im KC born and raised.. a huge chiefs fan, but couldn't be more upset by our passing game. Cassel won't throw the ball down the field nearly as much as Manning. Cassel's best year(NE) he threw for 3,600 yards. Manning has never threw under 3700 in his entire career, 4700 two years ago when he played last. Decker may gather double teams later in the year depending on production out of the gate, leaving thomas one on one. Bowe will always take the Double with KC. I go Thomas
Surprised by the responses here. Decker is getting more looks from Manning in preseason, but Demaryius is the more talented home run hitter and bigger TD threat. I'd put my money on Demaryius over Decker for the best fantasy #'s this year. But that's not the argument, it's Thomas vs.Bowe. KC will be a run first offense this year, and that would be Matt Cassel running that offense. Not to disparage Cassel, but he's a middling efficient QB at best, and the KC offense will see less QB home run plays with the return of Jamaal Charles, the addition of Peyton Hillis and Dexter McCluster moving further into a Sproles like role. My prediction... Bowe: 1,100, 4 tds Thomas: 1220, 8 tds

Bowe all day. Go check Bowes stats before Cassell got hurt last year, then check them afterwards. He was easily a top 10 wr through the first half of the season I believe, with Cassell as his qb. not saying I think highly of Matt Cassell, but he targets Bowe alot. Way more than I think Thomas will get targeted.
I would say both.....hahahahahah....joking....but they could sport similar #'s!
If Cassell stays healthy and Hillis doesn't get too much into the mix making KC a run al day team then I would say Bowe....if none of that happens I would go with DThomas!
IMO and my pick personally I would have to say Bowe though....we are still not sure what Manning will do and how he will be this season.....he hasn't been back in a while and rumor has it he is more of a coach and an advisor than a QB these days. I also got burned by D.Thomas last year (I know...a different QB) but I thought D.Thomas was going to be a super stud last season and it didn't turn out that way.
Bowe is a vet of sorts and has always produced big STATS and is a big threat so I would go with Bowe!
Good Luck m8!
