22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Bowden got the "Athlete" label as a four-star recruit out of high school, choosing Kentucky over some much bigger programs. Three years later, he enters the NFL as a third-round draft pick still fighting the same battle, with his long-term position unclear. He primarily played wide receiver for the Wildcats, even making the Biletnikoff Award watch list last summer. But when injuries knocked out Kentucky's top two quarterbacks early last season, Bowden pushed the coaching staff to let him take over as the signal-caller, and he went on to pile up 1,468 rushing yards and 13 TDs as a zone-read QB who rarely threw the ball. A hamstring strain prevented Bowden from working out at the 2020 combine, but he claims to consistently run the 40yard dash in the 4.4-4.5 range. The Raiders unexpectedly dealt Bowden to Miami only days before the start of the regular season, giving him the difficult task of quickly adjusting to an entirely different second offensive scheme with limited cushion. Once Bowden does get up to speed in Miami, however, he could have an easier path to touches behind Jordan Howard and Matt Breida than he did behind Josh Jacobs and Jalen Richard. The Dolphins also have a significant hole at receiver behind DeVante Parker and Preston Williams, a hint that Bowden could see more time at his primary collegiate position. Read Past Outlooks

Coach's Decision
September 13, 2020
Bowden (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Bowden was acquired by the Dolphins via the Raiders Sept. 5 in exchange for a draft pick, but he'll have to wait at least a week to make his NFL debut. The 2020 third-round pick out of Kentucky was listed as a receiver on the team's depth chart and could see action out of the slot when in the lineup. In his stead, Isaiah Ford and Mack Hollins will handle depth receiver duties for Sunday's contest.
