July 13, 2019
McDowell (concussion) has been suspended for the first two games of the 2019 NFL season, Liz Matthews of USA Today reports. The suspension is believed to be related to McDowell's arrests for unrelated incidents in the past year.
McDowell was released by the Seahawks in May after failing to play a single snap with the team that originally drafted him, ultimately missing the entire 2018 campaign after suffering a serious head injury stemming from an ATV accident. McDowell's agent Drew Rosenhaus "is confident" he'll play again in 2019, but facing a two-game suspension it's unclear which team will opt to bring the defensive lineman along.

Despite the swirling of Jimmy Garoppolo and Kirk Cousins rumors, Deshaun Watson remains a more plausible quarterback target for the Browns.
2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Seahawks traded down in the draft a couple times to pick McDowell in the second round, 35th overall. No one questions his skills as an interior pass rusher, but plenty questioned his motor coming out of Michigan State. The Seahawks were satisfied he wouldn't let them down, but he didn't even make it to the field before he became a problem. McDowell was involved in an ATV accident this offseason and might not play this year, as his recovery figures to be lengthy. It looks as if whatever the Seahawks get out of him this season will be gravy.
