Saints' Bennie Fowler: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler underwent shoulder surgery Monday to repair his labrum and rotator cuff, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Fowler was placed on IR and will miss at least three weeks, but he could return after the minimum time required. The 29-year-old wideout is often buried on the depth chart, but with Michael Thomas (hamstring) and Emmanuel Sanders (COVID) sitting out Week 7 against the Panthers, Deonte Harris, Marquez Callaway and Austin Carr could all see boosts in usage for the time being.

Saints' Bennie Fowler: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (shoulder) was placed on IR on Friday, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Fowler will have to miss at least three weeks following this move, so the earliest he could return would be Week 10 against the 49ers. He has two catches for 11 yards this season, with all of that production coming against the Chargers in Week 6.

Saints' Bennie Fowler: Can't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (shoulder) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

The Saints just returned from a Week 6 bye, so Fowler may have picked up this injury during a Week 5 win over the Chargers. Missing the first practice of the week puts him in danger of sitting out this Sunday against the Panthers, but he still has two practices to upgrade his status.

Saints' Bennie Fowler: First receptions of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler corralled two of six targets for 11 yards in Monday night's 30-27 overtime win against the Chargers.

The receptions were Fowler's first of the season, as he took advantage of absences ahead of him on the depth chart in Michael Thomas (ankle/disciplinary) and Deonte Harris (hamstring). With Thomas likely to take the field again for Week 6, Fowler is unlikely to see meaningful playing time.

Saints' Bennie Fowler: Brought up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints promoted Fowler to the active roster Saturday, Mike Triplett of reports.

With Michael Thomas (ankle) still sitting out, Fowler was brought up for a third consecutive game. He's totaled just 11 offensive snaps through the first two contests and hasn't been targeted, so he should be off fantasy radars at this time.

Bennie Fowler: Descends to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler reverted to the Saints' practice squad Tuesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Fowler logged just four offensive snaps in Week 2. He'll shift back to the practice squad and await a possible promotion before Week 3's matchup versus the Packers.

Saints' Bennie Fowler: Promoted for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler was elevated to the Saints' active roster from the practice squad Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The 29-year-old served an extra player in the season opener before reverting back to the practice squad, and he'll do so again in Week 2. Fowler wasn't targeted on seven offensive snaps last week, though the absence of Michael Thomas (ankle) could lead to some more opportunities.

Bennie Fowler: Heads back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler reverted to the Saints' practice squad.

Fowler logged seven offensive snaps in Week 1's win over Tampa Bay but didn't receive a target. His stint on the practice squad may be shortlived, as Michael Thomas (ankle) is expected to miss multiple games.

Saints' Bennie Fowler: On active roster for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Fowler was released toward the end of camp but received praise throughout practice. He rejoined the team as a member of the practice squad, but he now has a chance to be active for its Week 1 matchup against the Buccaneers.

Bennie Fowler: Released by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler was released Saturday, Amie Just of reports.

Despite some encouraging words from quarterback Drew Brees a couple weeks ago, Fowler didn't make the cut for the Saints' final 53-man roster. After stints with the Broncos and Giants, he'll look for a new home elsewhere.

Saints' Bennie Fowler: Draws praise from Brees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler has earned high marks from Drew Brees and earned a spot at camp thanks to the quarterback, Amie Just of reports.

According to Fowler, he tagged along with Emmanuel Sanders for a workout and impressed Brees enough to get a contract with New Orleans on Brees' recommendation. The QB gushed about Fowler in recent comments. "He's a guy who came in as an undrafted free agent so we say that he came in the hard way, right?" Brees said. "He's had to earn it each and every year. He's had to play a ton of special teams. So, to me, those guys are just football players. Whatever you need them to do, they're willing to step in and do it, and, at times, that's the dirty work." Despite the glowing words from Brees and relationship with Sanders from his time in Denver, Fowler won't be guaranteed a roster spot. He'll have to earn it over the next couple of weeks.

Saints' Bennie Fowler: Inks deal with New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints and Fowler agreed to terms of a contract Thursday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Prior to his release from the Giants in late November, Fowler saw regular action in eight contests due to an injury-plagued receiving corps. During his five-year career, he's topped out at a 29-350-3 line on 56 targets in 2017 with the Broncos. Upon joining the Saints, Fowler will compete with Deonte Harris and Austin Carr for potentially the final WR spot on the team's depth chart.

Bennie Fowler: Hits waivers again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants waived Fowler on Tuesday.

Fowler was a healthy scratch during Week 12's loss to the Bears, and the Giants are subjecting him to waivers for the second time this year. The 28-year-old wideout has accrued 23 receptions for 193 yards over eight games. With Golden Tate in the concussion protocol, the Giants are expected to pick up another receiver ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Packers.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Ruled out for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Bears.

With Sterling Shepard back in the lineup, Fowler evidently doesn't factor into New York's plans on offense. In Fowler's stead, Cody Latimer and Cody Core could see larger depth roles.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Hauls in two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught two of three targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets.

Fowler surpassed Cody Latimer as the team's No. 3 wideout, out-snapping the 27-year-old by a 55-6 margin. Sterling Shepard (concussion) may return following the team's upcoming bye, and that would send Fowler back into a reserve role. He's not a prized fantasy asset anyway, falling short of 40 yards in six straight outings.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Generates 22 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught three of six targets for 22 yards in Monday's 37-18 loss to the Cowboys.

Fowler was the No. 4 receiver in this contest and should maintain that role as long as Sterling Shepard (concussion) is on the sidelines. Fowler's situation gives him minimal fantasy value, however, as Golden Tate, Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram (foot) demand the bulk of Daniel Jones' targets.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Catches both targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught both his targets for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to Detroit.

The 28-year-old worked as the team's No. 4 wide receiver and played 23 offensive snaps, his lowest total of the season. Fowler figures to continue working in a similar low-volume role until Sterling Shepard (concussion) is cleared to return.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Snags four passes in Giants return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught four of five targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Cardinals.

Fowler had a solid start to the season on a short-handed Giants squad with 111 yards during his first two games. He fell out of favor and then was cut after Week 4. He didn't miss much of a beat Sunday. Fowler is a solid, physical down-roster option for the Giants, but it's fair to wonder where he'll stand once Evan Engram rounds back into form and Sterling Shepard (concussion) returns to the fold. Until then, a matchup against a stingy Detroit defense awaits.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Rejoins Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler re-signed with the Giants on Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Fowler was cut loose by the Giants on Oct. 1, but he now rejoins the team with Sterling Shepard (concussion) in danger of missing more time. He'll provide New York's receiver corps with quality depth but isn't worth fantasy consideration in most formats.

Bennie Fowler: Cut loose by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants released Fowler on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Fowler has some utility after two games, taking advantage of an injury- and suspension-ravaged receiving corps to the tune of 10 catches (on 15 targets) for 91 yards. With Daniel Jones under center and Sterling Shepard back from a concussion the past two weeks, Fowler fell off to a 2-8-0 line on five targets. Making matters worse for Fowler was the return of Golden Tate from suspension. Considering his lacking output with Jones directing the offense, cutting Fowler is a logical corresponding move to add Tate to the 53-man roster.
