Falcons' Dante Fowler: Gets sack to end disappointing year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler registered two tackles and one sack during Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Buccaneers.

Acquired via a three-year, $48 million free agent contract last March, Fowler was brought on to complement Grady Jarrett (groin) and Takkarist McKinley (groin) in the Falcons' pass-rush. Things didn't go according to plan, however. Atlanta waived a disgruntled McKinley in November, while Fowler only generated three sacks over 14 games. The 26-year-old is under contract for one more season at a cap hit of $18.7 million, though there is a potential out in his deal prior to 2022. He's one year removed from an 11.5-sack output, but the 2015 No. 3 overall draft choice has averaged just 4.8 sacks per season in his other four active NFL campaigns.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: No injury designation for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fowler was limited in all three of Atlanta's practice sessions this week, but he evidently showed enough to get his name taken off the team's final injury report. He seems to be playing at less than 100 percent, however, having registered just 18 tackles and two sacks all season.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Workload restricted Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The 26-year-old was limited all of last week while nursing a hamstring issue, but he was able to contribute Sunday against the Saints with one tackle over 39 defensive snaps. There were no reported setbacks to Fowler's condition postgame, meaning the Falcons may be taking a precautionary approach with the 2020 offseason acquisition. Fowler's debut campaign in Atlanta has been underwhelming, as he has recorded just two sacks after collecting 11.5 in 2019 with the Rams.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game versus the Saints, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fowler was questionable heading into Week 12 as well, a game in which he logged a season-low 16 snaps on defense. It's possible that his usage was planned ahead of time, and he may have a cap on his reps once again. If that's the case, Jacob Tuioti-Mariner could see more snaps once again.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Considered questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Saints, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Fowler carried this injury into last week's win over the Raiders, and it may have still been bothering him as he logged a season-low 16 snaps on defense. He managed to practice in a limited capacity all week, so he's on track to suit up for the divisional tilt. However, his reps could be capped due to the lingering injury, so Jacob Tuioti-Mariner could see more time at defensive end again.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Still bothered by hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fowler missed Week 9 with a hamstring injury, and he apparently still isn't fully recovered. He has been able to play through the injury in recent weeks but looks to be at less than 100 percent, as Fowler has totaled only two sacks with the Falcons after racking up a career-best 11.5 for the Rams last season.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Fowler missed Week 9 with a hamstring injury and Week 11 due to a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The 2015 first-round pick is back in action for a cross-conference matchup Sunday. Fowler has registered just 17 tackles and two sacks through eight games, a severe drop-off from last year's totals of 58 stops and 11.5 sacks.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Questionable for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Raiders, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Fowler came off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, but he remains beleaguered by the same hamstring injury that kept him inactive Week 9 against the Broncos. He was held out of Friday's practice session entirely, leaving his status up in the air heading into a Sunday matchup against Las Vegas. An appearance would mark Fowler's first since Oct. 29. He has thus far recorded two sacks, six QB hits and one forced fumble in his debut campaign with the Falcons.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Battling hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fowler was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday after spending 11 days away from the team. However, the 26-year-old is still hampered by the hamstring injury that kept him out for one game prior to his stint on the reserve list. It's an encouraging sign that he practiced in some capacity. He'll look to upgrade to full participation by Friday to avoid a questionable tag ahead of Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Comes off COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons activated Fowler (hamstring) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Fowler spent the Falcons' bye week on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he's now been cleared of all illness concerns ahead of Sunday's game against the Raiders. Interim coach Raheem Morris said Wednesday that he expects Fowler to "get some work in with trainers" at practice, per McFadden, so it remains to be seen whether the pass rusher is over the hamstring injury that caused him to miss Week 9.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Moved to reserve/COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

It's not certain whether Fowler was in close proximity to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 or if he tested positive. It'll be worth monitoring whether any other Falcons players will be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, though the team is on bye for Week 10.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Won't play Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

The 26-year-old was unable to practice all week and won't be available for Sunday's contest. Fowler will have Atlanta's bye in Week 10 to aid in his recovery before missing additional games. Takkarist McKinley (groin) is also sidelined, leaving Steven Means and Allen Bailey to start at defensive end for the Falcons.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Picks up hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

This is the first report of a hamstring injury for Fowler, who had previously battled an ankle injury. He's greatly underachieving relative to the large contract he signed with Atlanta this past offseason, with just 17 tackles and two sacks halfway through the season.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Gets support from coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Raheem Morris says Fowler's low sack total correlates to a lack of production from the pass-rush group as a whole, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

The interim coach was unwilling to place the blame directly upon Fowler despite Atlanta's defense sitting at sixth worst in the NFL with 1.4 team sacks per game. Fowler was certainly expected to move the needle more than he has, as he's collected just one sack since inking a three-year, $45 million free-agent contract in March. If 2017 first-round pick Takkarist McKinley (groin) is traded at the deadline as has been conjectured about, Fowler may have an even greater burden upon his shoulders within Atlanta's thus far uninspired pass rush.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Cleared of ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) isn't on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fowler didn't practice Thursday, but he was able to get back out there Friday and should be good to go come game day. He'll look to get his season on track against Detroit, as Fowler has mustered just one sack through six games with the Falcons after racking up 11.5 for the Rams last season.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Downgraded Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) was a non-participant during Thursday's practice, Tori McElhaney of The Athletic reports.

Fowler practiced in limited fashion at Wednesday's session after he saw a season-high 80 percent of snaps on defense in last week's win over Minnesota. It's not a great sign that Fowler was downgraded, so if he were to miss Week 7 against the Lions, Steven Means would be in line for the start at defensive end.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Held back in Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) was a limited participant during practice Wednesday, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Fowler ended up fielding a season-high 80 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday in a win over the Vikings, and that came after he put in a limited week of practice. The 2015 No. 3 overall draft choice was unable to generate a sack for the fourth consecutive game, though he does have four QB hits to his name since Week 3. If Fowler is able to suit up in Week 7, he will oppose a Detroit offensive line that ranks 21st in the NFL with 2.4 sacks surrendered per game.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Ready for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Fowler, like a number of Falcons defenders, was limited throughout practice all week but looks to be a full-go versus Minnesota. The starting defensive end has gone three straight games without a sack, a streak he'll look to break against Kirk Cousins and the Vikings.

October 14, 2020 06:16 PM
Falcons' Dante Fowler: Back on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fowler dealt with an ankle injury earlier this season but has still played in every game. It's unclear if this is the same ankle or a new injury altogether, but Fowler's status isn't a major concern as long as he finishes the practice week without a setback.

October 3, 2020 09:24 PM
Falcons' Dante Fowler: Will suit up Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) has been cleared for Monday's game versus the Packers.

Fowler has been dealing with an ankle injury since training camp, and it's led to inconsistent snap counts thus far. With Takkarist McKinley (groin) already ruled out, Fowler will likely handle a hefty workload in Week 4 along with Allen Bailey, Steven Means and Charles Harris.
