2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
A third round NFL Draft pick, former Kentucky athlete Lynn Bowden Jr. transitioned from being a wide receiver in his freshman and sophomore seasons to being the team's primary running back and wildcat quarterback, while mixing in some work at wide receiver in his final collegiate season as a junior. Unable to participate in the athletic testing at the NFL Scouting Combine, Bowden did flash explosiveness and versatility not unlike the 49ers' Deebo Samuel in college.

Unfortunately, Bowden is a very unrefined prospect who really doesn't even have an official position as of now. Most believe that he'll be sort of a hybrid, Tavon Austin or Cordarelle Patterson-like WR/RB player, which would fit right in with the historical Raiders draft choices. These types of players don't often contribute consistent fantasy production, especially when they're stuck behind the likes of first round running back picks like Josh Jacobs, so 2020 isn't likely the time to invest in Bowden Jr. as in seasonal formats, but there's reason to be optimistic about his chances to do something for dynasty teams in the future.

He's not going to blow anyone away with his passing ability, but don't be surprised if you see the Raiders give Bowden Jr. a few opportunities to pass the ball as early as this season. Those types of trick plays can often lead to some explosive results, including touchdowns, which could be helpful in best ball formats.

Probably more of a threat to Jalen Richard's playing time than Josh Jacobs', Bowden Jr. is a player to keep an eye on in 2020.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury High ankle sprain for Jakeem Grant
Will miss Week 17
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 28, 10:53 am

Miami Dolphins
#Dolphins WR and returner Jakeem Grant suffered a high-ankle sprain in the team’s dramatic win over the #Raiders, source said, and he’s out for Sunday’s must-win game vs. the #Bills. An injured reserve possibility. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Dolphins have been nursing injuries in their receiving corps for weeks now with DeVante Parker missing this week with a hamstring injury. Mack Hollins, Isaiah Ford and Lynn Bowden Jr. were other receivers to get work against the Raiders. Tight end Mike Gesicki could be the leading pass catcher for Miami against the Bills.

Injury Parker, Gesicki, Grant Inactive for the Dolphins
Miami down 3 key offensive weapons
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 20, 11:30 am

Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins officially without DeVante Parker, Mike Gesicki, Jakeem Grant and Ereck Flowers. Other than that, everything's fine. (Joe Schad on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Dolphins are optimistic that Parker and Gesicki would play earlier this morning but now Miami will be without three of their main offensive weapons. Lynn Bowden Jr. will be a nice Flex option against the Patriots.

Injury Dolphins receivers dealing with hamstring issues
DeVante Parker, Jakeem Grant uncertain for Week 15
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Dec 15, 11:15 am

Miami Dolphins
One week after Miami had to play without its top three running backs, the status of its two starting receivers is now up in the air, with Jakeem Grant also dealing with a hamstring strain. #Dolphins WR DeVante Parker suffered a slight hamstring strain in Sunday's loss to the #Chiefs, source said. Status TBD for this week against the #Patriots, but worth noting Parker hasn’t missed a game this season. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We'll get a better idea of their status on Wednesday but we could see more of Lynn Bowden Jr. this week as the depth of the receiving corps in Miami gets tested. Bowden saw 9 targets against the Chiefs hauling in 7 for 82 yards.
