Bowden secured eight of 12 targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 56-26 loss to Buffalo. Bowden also lost seven yards on his only carry. The rookie third-round pick wasn't tremendously effective upon being thrust into a key offensive role with Jakeem Grant (ankle) sidelined, but it's at least been encouraging to see the Dolphins' coaching staff trust him with such important duties down the stretch. Through 10 appearances in 2020, Bowden caught 28 of 37 targets for 211 yards while also logging nine carries for 32 yards. After having flashed versatility and upside as a rookie, Bowden will look to take a step forward in his development for 2021.
Bowden secured two of three targets for eight yards during Saturday's 26-25 win over the Raiders. He also carried the ball once for eight yards. Bowden worked behind all of Jakeem Grant, Mack Hollins and Isaiah Ford in Miami's wide receiver corps Saturday, even with DeVante Parker (hamstring) sidelined. The rookie third-round pick has flashed real pass-catching ability, but he's not yet involved on offense with enough consistency to warrant fantasy consideration outside of deep formats.
Bowden secured six of seven targets for 37 yards during Sunday's 22-12 win over the Patriots. Bowden led the team in targets with DeVante Parker (hamstring), Mike Gesicki (shoulder) and Jakeem Grant (hamstring) all sidelined Sunday, and he managed fair fantasy production in PPR formats despite being limited to mediocre yardage. Depending on the health of Miami's receiving corps when Dec. 26's game against the Raiders rolls around, the rookie third-round pick could play another notable role on offense.
Bowden is in line to see more opportunities Sunday against the Patriots with fellow receivers DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Jakeem Grant (hamstring) both inactive for the contest, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Tight end Mike Gesicki (shoulder) is also out, so the Dolphins will need to turn to the likes of Bowden, Mack Hollins, Antonio Callaway, Malcolm Perry and Isaiah Ford to help out in the team's passing game. In last week's loss to Kansas City, Bowden logged a career-high seven catches (on nine targets) for 82 yards.
Bowden caught seven of nine targets for 82 yards in Sunday's 33-27 loss to Kansas City. He also had a two-yard run and an incomplete pass. Bowden led the Dolphins in catches and receiving yards while tying Mack Hollins for the team lead in targets, as fellow pass-catchers DeVante Parker (leg), Mike Gesicki (shoulder) and Jakeem Grant (leg) all left the game with injuries. The Dolphins' passing attack didn't skip a beat despite those injuries, though the team's comeback bid ultimately came up six points short. Given Bowden's instant chemistry with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in this one, he could remain a major part of Miami's game plan in Week 15 against the Eagles. Bowden also got the ball on a pair of trick plays, throwing an incomplete pass on one and opting to tuck it and run for a short gain after the Chiefs took away the passing option on the other.
