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, Fowlers 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 may be even more impressive is Fowler's ability to scoop the ball amidst diving lineman, 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.
