Giants' Bennie Fowler: Hauls in two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught two of three targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets.

Fowler surpassed Cody Latimer as the team's No. 3 wideout, out-snapping the 27-year-old by a 55-6 margin. Sterling Shepard (concussion) may return following the team's upcoming bye, and that would send Fowler back into a reserve role. He's not a prized fantasy asset anyway, falling short of 40 yards in six straight outings.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Generates 22 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught three of six targets for 22 yards in Monday's 37-18 loss to the Cowboys.

Fowler was the No. 4 receiver in this contest and should maintain that role as long as Sterling Shepard (concussion) is on the sidelines. Fowler's situation gives him minimal fantasy value, however, as Golden Tate, Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram (foot) demand the bulk of Daniel Jones' targets.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Catches both targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught both his targets for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to Detroit.

The 28-year-old worked as the team's No. 4 wide receiver and played 23 offensive snaps, his lowest total of the season. Fowler figures to continue working in a similar low-volume role until Sterling Shepard (concussion) is cleared to return.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Snags four passes in Giants return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught four of five targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Cardinals.

Fowler had a solid start to the season on a short-handed Giants squad with 111 yards during his first two games. He fell out of favor and then was cut after Week 4. He didn't miss much of a beat Sunday. Fowler is a solid, physical down-roster option for the Giants, but it's fair to wonder where he'll stand once Evan Engram rounds back into form and Sterling Shepard (concussion) returns to the fold. Until then, a matchup against a stingy Detroit defense awaits.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Rejoins Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler re-signed with the Giants on Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Fowler was cut loose by the Giants on Oct. 1, but he now rejoins the team with Sterling Shepard (concussion) in danger of missing more time. He'll provide New York's receiver corps with quality depth but isn't worth fantasy consideration in most formats.

Bennie Fowler: Cut loose by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants released Fowler on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Fowler has some utility after two games, taking advantage of an injury- and suspension-ravaged receiving corps to the tune of 10 catches (on 15 targets) for 91 yards. With Daniel Jones under center and Sterling Shepard back from a concussion the past two weeks, Fowler fell off to a 2-8-0 line on five targets. Making matters worse for Fowler was the return of Golden Tate from suspension. Considering his lacking output with Jones directing the offense, cutting Fowler is a logical corresponding move to add Tate to the 53-man roster.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Catches one pass in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught one of two targets for three yards in Sunday's win over Washington.

Fowler was on the field for 49 of 78 possible offensive snaps (63 percent). The 28-year-old has been quiet so far this season, logging 12 catches off 20 targets for 99 yards, including just two receptions for eight yards over the last two contests.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Ready to play Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game versus the Redskins.

Fowler suffered a hamstring injury during a Week 3 practice, and while he still took the field this past Sunday in Tampa Bay, he gathered in just one of three passes from Daniel Jones for five yards. The health concern followed Fowler into this week, limiting him at each practice, but it won't impact his availability for Sunday. Unfortunately for Fowler, Cody Latimer is out of the concussion protocol, Sterling Shepard regained his standing as the Giants' No. 1 WR in Week 3 after getting over his own head injury, and Evan Engram is off to a hot start. Consequently, Fowler may be the fourth option, at best, for Jones in the team's aerial attack.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Limited second straight day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Fowler's reps remained capped for the second day in a row, so he's not quite out of the woods yet as he works through the hamstring injury. If Fowler upgrades to full participation Friday, he should gain clearance for the Giants' Week 4 matchup with the Redskins. With Cody Latimer (concussion) practicing fully Thursday and seemingly on track to be available this weekend, Fowler is expected to operate as the Giants' No. 3 receiver if he suits up against Washington.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Puts in limited showing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Fowler picked up a hamstring injury last week but went on to play 60 percent of the Giants' offensive snaps Sunday in Tampa Bay. He was targeted just twice by rookie signal-caller Daniel Jones, turning them into one catch for five yards. There's an opportunity for Fowler to produce in a skill-position group dealing with a number of injuries, namely to Saquon Barkley (ankle), Cody Latimer (concussion) and Russell Shepard (foot), assuming he gets through Week 4 prep unscathed.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Minimal role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught one of two targets for five yards Sunday versus the Buccaneers.

With Sterling Shepard back and Golden Tate's suspension elapsing after Week 4, Fowler's role figures to be minor.

September 22, 2019 04:28 PM
Giants' Bennie Fowler: Active Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) is active for Sunday's Week 3 tilt against the Buccaneers, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Fowler had been trending in the right direction late in the week, and this report confirms his participation for Week 3. He'll be joined by the returning Sterling Shepard (concussion) versus the Buccaneers, giving rookie Daniel Jones a solid 1-2 punch at wideout in his first NFL start.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Seemingly on track to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) seems more likely than not to play in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Added to the injury report Thursday as a non-participant, Fowler made it back to a limited practice Friday and now is listed as questionable for Week 3. He could serve as the No. 2 wide receiver behind Sterling Shepard, with both Golden Tate (suspension) and Cody Latimer (concussion) unable to play.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Deemed questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Fowler was added to the injury report Thursday as a non-participant, coming off a Week 2 performance with five catches for 51 yards on 10 targets in a 28-14 loss to the Bills. He should have a significant role in the offense if he's able to play Week 3, but Sterling Shepard will be back in action as the Giants' unquestioned No. 1 receiver.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Held out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Fowler picked up a hamstring injury at Wednesday's session, which contained him to work on a side field one day later, per Tom Rock of Newsday. The development further depleted the health of the Giants' receiving corps, which includes the injured Sterling Shepard (concussion), Cody Latimer (concussion) and Darius Slayton (hamstring). While Shepard progressed to a full showing Thursday, none of the four are in the clear for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay. Friday's injury report will give a better sense of each player's ability to suit up this weekend.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Nursing hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler suffered a hamstring injury in Wednesday's practice but head coach Pat Shurmur said he is hopeful Fowler can play in Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

This leaves each of the Giants' top three wideouts on the injury report now with both Sterling Shepard and Cody Latimer making their way through concussion protocol. Fortunately for New York, it doesn't appear Fowler's injury is very serious, and more on his status should be revealed once the Giants release their practice report for Thursday.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Leading receiver in Week 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught five of 10 targets for 51 yards and added a 20-yard carry in Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Bills.

Fowler was New York's top wide receiver with Golden Tate (suspension) and Sterling Shepard (concussion) sitting out, leading the team in targets and receiving yards while catching one fewer ball than tight end Evan Engram. With Tate suspended for two more games and Shepard's recovery timetable unclear at this point, Fowler could be thrust into the same role against the Buccaneers in Week 3.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Week 2 starting role confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler will start alongside Cody Latimer in the Giants' Week 2 tilt against the Bills with Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Golden Tate (suspension) unavailable, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

Fowler will join his former Broncos teammate to form the top wideout duo for Eli Manning in a tough matchup versus a stingy Bills secondary. The 28-year-old kicked off his second Giants season by bringing in all five of his targets for 40 yards against the Cowboys in Week 1 while logging 50 snaps.

September 13, 2019 06:04 PM
Giants' Bennie Fowler: Primed for increased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler is preparing for an expanded role in Sunday's game against Buffalo, Michael Eisen of Giants.com reports.

Golden Tate (suspension) and Sterling Shepard (concussion) are ruled out, while Cody Latimer (calf) will be a game-time decision. Less than two months after he entered training camp on the roster bubble, Fowler is looking at the possibility of a No. 1 wide receiver role for Week 2. A career mark of 6.8 yards per target doesn't bode well for his chances to produce efficiently against an excellent Buffalo secondary led by cornerback Tre'Davious White. That said, Fowler caught each of his five targets for 40 yards in last week's loss to Dallas, and he could see more work this coming Sunday out of sheer necessity. The healthy options behind him are Russell Shepard, Cody Core and TJ Jones.

Giants' Bennie Fowler: Sees five targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler caught all five of his targets for 40 yards Sunday against the Cowboys.

With Golden Tate suspended three more games and Sterling Shepard nursing a concussion, Fowler could see more work in the near term. Just temper expectations as Fowler's not much of a big-play threat, and Evan Engram, Cody Latimer and Saquon Barkley are still around.
