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.
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.
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 saw his 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.
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 a pass rushing specialist during certain situations moving forward.
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.
