2018 Fantasy Outlook
After seeing limited action with the Broncos over the first three years of his career, Fowler joins the Bears to add depth to the wide receiver position. Although he had a career-high 350 yards and three touchdowns last season, he caught just 29 of 56 targets. With a suddenly crowded depth chart at wide receiver in Chicago, he's not guaranteed a roster spot, and should he crack the Week 1 roster, he likely will see limited snaps behind the top three receivers on the team.

Expected to take over as No. 2
WRNew York Giants
December 8, 2018
Fowler is expected to take over as the No. 2 wide receiver after it was reported Odell Beckham (quadriceps) would not play Sunday against the Redskins.
ANALYSIS
Fowler saw 33 offensive snaps Week 13 against the Bears, but it was Russell Shepard who did more damage as the No. 3 receiving option for the Giants, tallying 59 receiving yards and a touchdown compared to Fowler's 11 yards on two targets. Of course, it was Shepard who benefited from the Odell Beckham trick-play touchdown during the aforementioned contest, but there's a real possibility both Fowler and Shepard could have an important role in Week 14 with Beckham sidelined. Fowler figures to be next in line behind Sterling Shepard in terms of potential targets against a Redskins defense that has proven particularly susceptible to the pass in recent weeks.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Fowler was the last player to catch a pass from Peyton Manning, converting a two-point conversion at the end of Super Bowl 50. The wideout had a few nice moments during the Broncos' Super Bowl run, including a 31-yard catch-and-run up the seam on third and long as Denver came from behind to beat Pittsburgh in the divisional round. A fractured elbow in the 2016 preseason hampered his progress and he caught two or more passes just twice all season. The Broncos' depth chart is more crowded now after the selection of Carlos Henderson and Isaiah McKenzie in the draft, but Fowler is still as likely as any returning receiver not named Demaryius Thomas or Emmanuel Sanders to make the team. The 212-pound target has the size and toughness over the middle to factor in as a big-slot receiver alongside the smaller Henderson and McKenzie. Expect his contributions on special teams to also be a factor.
Fowler, the former undrafted free agent, hauled in arguably the biggest catch of Denver's Super Bowl run – a 31-yard seam route on third-and-long that kept the team's fourth quarter comeback bid against Pittsburgh in the divisional round alive. Fowler's ability to work the middle of the field and accumulate yards after the catch make him an attractive option in the slot as both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders prefer to work outside. After signing his exclusive rights free agent tender, Fowler will be looking to beat out Cody Latimer and Jordan Norwood for the No. 3 job and a new contract this season.
The Broncos' wide receiver depth chart is quite large, and with Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Andre Caldwell and Cody Latimer locked into the top-4 slots, Fowler isn't likely to make much of a fantasy impact this season, if he makes the roster at all.
