Fowler caught his only target for 10 yards during Sunday's 38-35 win over the Buccaneers.
Fowler logged his lowest share off offensive snaps (32 percent) during active games this season during Sunday's win, and saw only one target from quarterback Eli Manning. Despite being listed as the No. 3 wideout on the Giants' depth chart, it's difficult to imagine Fowler receiving the offensive workload necessary to propel himself onto the fantasy radar. Odell Beckham, Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram remain firmly ahead of Fowler in terms of target share.
Fowler played 69 percent of snaps on offense in Sunday's 20-13 loss to Washington, catching four of seven targets for 48 yards.
Meanwhile, Russell Shepard played just two snaps on offense in his return from a neck injury. Fowler may stick as the No. 3 receiver after a Week 9 bye, but we can't expect more than three or four targets per game in a subpar offense that's already struggling to create touches for Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard.
Fowler caught his only target for 11 yards in Monday's loss to the Falcons.
Fowler signed with the Giants last week but still played 35 of 64 offensive snaps, good for third on the team with Russell Shepard (neck) inactive. The 27-year-old could see a similar snap-share if Shepard is forced to miss any additional time, but is unlikely to provide consistent production regardless.
Fowler most recently spent the offseason with Chicago but failed to make the 53-man roster, and then the wideout spent four days with the Patriots before being cut. He'll now have another opportunity to assist an injury-riddled Giants receiving corps, as Cody Latimer (hamstring) was just placed on injured reserve. Should Russell Shepard (neck) remain sidelined for the coming weeks, Fowler could be called upon to immediately serve as the team's No. 3 wide receiver behind Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard.
Fowler was cut by the Patriots on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Fowler's tenure with the Patriots comes to an end less than a week after he was signed. He was signed Tuesday and didn't make it to his first tilt with the team. He'll again be a free agent and look to catch on with another club in 2018.
