Rams' Dante Fowler Jr.: Flashes big-play ability
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Folwer Jr. racked up two sacks and three quarterback hits in Sunday's 30-27 win over the Panthers.

After signing a $14 million contract to stay with the Rams this offseason, Fowler Jr. matched his 2018 sack total with the team in Week 1. The 2015 first-round pick hasn't been a tackle machine in his career, but continues to demonstrate his pass-rushing ability and now has 18 career sacks. The 25-year-old could face more resistance in his efforts in Week 2, when he and the Rams take on New Orleans.

Rams' Dante Fowler Jr.: Gets $14 million for one year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler is signing a one-year, $14 million contract to stay with the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Odd as it may seem for a 24-year-old pass rusher to accept a one-year contract, the deal makes sense for Fowler if he's confident in his development. He would've been a second- or third-tier pass rusher in the upcoming free-agent class, following a 2018 campaign in which he had 30 tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles in 15 regular-season games between Jacksonville and Los Angeles. Given his age and draft status (No. 3 overall in 2015), Fowler is one big season away from landing a long-term deal north of $15 million per year. He's apparently confident that will happen, while the Rams hope to capitalize on his extra motivation even if they don't end up keeping him beyond 2019.

Rams' Dante Fowler Jr.: Re-signing with Los Angeles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler agreed to re-sign with the Rams on Sunday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Despite not getting a franchise tag from the Rams earlier this week, it's clear Fowler had no intentions of leaving Los Angeles, and the deal will become official once free agency officially opens next week. Fowler was acquired by the Rams at the Oct. 30 trade deadline this past season, and while he hasn't yet necessarily lived up to the hype of a No. 3 overall pick, Los Angeles clearly believes in the 24-year-old's potential moving forward.

Rams' Dante Fowler Jr.: Set to test open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler didn't receive a franchise tag from the Rams prior to Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It may have been mentioned as a possibility at one point, but there was never much chance of the Rams paying Fowler approximately $15 million for one season. The No. 3 overall pick from the 2015 draft looked good during the playoffs, but he only has 16 sacks in 47 career regular-season games. Given his age (24) and athleticism, Fowler shouldn't have too much trouble landing a multi-year deal with significant guaranteed money.

Rams' Dante Fowler Jr.: Strong performance Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler posted five tackles (all solo) and a sack in Sunday's 30-16 win over the Lions.

Fowler's five tackles were his most since joining the Rams via trade. He also added his second sack with his new club, bringing his season total to four. If Fowler continues to see an uptick in playing time, he could become a reliable IDP play to close out the season.

Rams' Dante Fowler Jr.: Monster performance Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler recorded three tackles (two solo), a sack and a forced fumble, which he recovered, across 49 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

Fowler delivered one of the games' most important plays against the Seahawks, strip-sacking Russell Wilson with only six minutes left in the fourth quarter and the Rams holding a five-point lead. What's maybe even more impressive is Fowler's ability to scoop up the ball amidst diving linemen, giving the Rams possession at the Seahawks' nine-yard line -- Brandin Cooks would score a touchdown on the very next play. Fowler is seeing a major uptick in snaps with the Rams over the past two games, which will help boost his IDP value for the remainder of the season.

Rams' Dante Fowler Jr.: Sees extended action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler recorded one tackle and defensed a pass while playing 44 snaps in Sunday's loss to New Orleans, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Fowler logged a season high in snaps Sunday, seeing the field on 62 percent of the Rams' defensive plays. He didn't put up great numbers, but the uptick in snaps greatly increases his potential value. He'll be an IDP to watch the next few weeks if he continues seeing significant action for the Rams as is expected.

Rams' Dante Fowler Jr.: Active for Sunday's affair
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler is active for Sunday's game against the Saints, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

The Rams most recent acquisition will reportedly suit up for his Los Angeles debut despite having just a week to familiarize himself with Wade Phillips' defense. Fowler will likely be used as a pass rushing specialist during certain situations moving forward.

Rams' Dante Fowler Jr.: Scooped up by Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars dealt Fowler to the Rams for a 2019 third-round pick and 2020 fifth-round selection Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The third overall pick in the 2015 draft, Fowler missed his entire rookie season due to a torn ACL. In the meantime, he played in 39 of 40 games, with the sole absence the result of a suspension for an accumulation of off-the-field issues. Overall, he brings 14 career sacks to the Rams, where he likely will enter a pass-rush rotation at left outside linebacker with Samson Ebukam.

Jaguars' Dante Fowler Jr.: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (groin) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Fowler was limited in practice Thursday due to a groin injury, but he appears to have fully recovered. The rotational defensive end will suit up against the Eagles on Sunday.

Jaguars' Dante Fowler Jr.: Limited at practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler was limited in practice Thursday due to a groin injury, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

Fowler first appeared on the injury report Thursday, suggesting that the issue popped up in practice. His status in Friday's session will give a clearer indication of his ability to play against the Eagles on Sunday.

Jaguars' Dante Fowler Jr.: Posts sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler recorded one tackle, a sack, in Sunday's loss to Houston.

Fowler hasn't recorded more than a single tackle in any game this season, and his sack Sunday was just his second of the year. Fowler hasn't seen a ton of snaps while operating as a backup, but his production is disappointing nonetheless. He'll look to build off of his sack in Week 8, when the Jaguars take on the Eagles.

Jaguars' Dante Fowler Jr.: Delivers huge strip-sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler recorded one strip-sack, which he recovered, across 19 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Patriots.

Fowler was reinstated this week after serving his one-game suspension, but he did not see the field a ton in his first game back. However, he still made his presence felt in limited reps, delivering a huge strip-sack on Tom Brady early in the fourth quarter. Look for the defensive end to potentially see an uptick in reps this Sunday against the Titans.

Jaguars' Dante Fowler Jr.: Suspension lifted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler was reinstated from a one-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, John Oehser of the team's official site reports.

Fowler will be eligible to play in Sunday's Week 2 matchup against the Patriots. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft recorded eight sacks in 2017 and adds to an already dominant defense.

Jaguars' Dante Fowler Jr.: Placed on suspended list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars placed Fowler on the Reserve/Suspended by Commissioner list.

While Fowler is on this list, he won't count against the team's 53-man roster. Fowler will be eligible to return Sept. 10 and can play Week 2 against the Patriots. He'll add a strong pass rush off the bench after he made 12 sacks over his first two seasons in the league.

Jaguars' Dante Fowler Jr.: Makes preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler returned from suspension in Saturday's 17-6 preseason win over the Falcons, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Fowler missed the first exhibition game because of a shoulder injury and the second one due to a suspension for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy. The 2015 first-round pick didn't have a successful debut, as he hit the quarterback once but failed to make a tackle.

Jaguars' Dante Fowler Jr.: Suspended for one week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler was suspended by the Jaguars for one week for a violation of team rules, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The circumstances of the fighting that got Fowler suspended are unclear for the most part, but the defensive end will be absent from practice this week and, more importantly, be sidelined for Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings.

Jaguars' Dante Fowler Jr.: Back at practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (shoulder, suspension) participated in Saturday's practice after being taken off the PUP list, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

It's unclear in what capacity Fowler practiced in, but it is a great sign that he's on the field his first day off the PUP. Fowler is not eligible to play until Week 2, however, after receiving a one-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Jaguars' Dante Fowler Jr.: Dealing with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (suspension) is nursing a shoulder injury, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.

Fowler was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list late last week with an undisclosed injury, but the source of his discomfort is now known. The 2015 first-round pick is without a clear timetable for his return, but he's not eligible to play until Week 2 in any event after receiving a one-game suspension earlier this month for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Jaguars' Dante Fowler Jr.: Will miss start of training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list with an undisclosed injury Saturday, Phillip Heilman of the Florida Times-Union reports.

The injury announcement comes one day after Fowler was handed a one-game suspension for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, reportedly connected to a July 2017 arrest for alleged battery. The 23-year-old was dealing with an upper-body injury in late June, but it's currently unknown if this is an extension of the same issue or a new injury. Fowler can be removed from the PUP list once medically cleared, but he will not be ready to take the field when training camp begins Thursday.
