The Falcons on Friday placed DE Dante Fowler on IR with a knee injury he suffered back in Week 5 against the Jets. It's not immediately clear how long Atlanta expects him to be out.

The Falcons activated EDGE Dante Fowler from the COVID list Monday. He had been out since July 29. Fowler now has some catching up to do in what needs to be a bounce-back season for him. Fowler managed just 3 sacks and 8 QB hits over 14 games after signing a multi-year deal with Atlanta in free agency in 2020.

The Falcons on Thursday placed DE Dante Fowler on the COVID list. His time spent there will depend on the specifics of his situation. We'll see how that progresses, but Fowler doesn't look like a big factor for IDP drafts even at full health.

Falcons DE Dante Fowler (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Raiders. Fowler hasn't played since Week 8, which makes an already low-floor option even riskier.

The Falcons have ruled starting DEs Dante Fowler and Takk McKinley out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Losing both DEs would be a big deal for most defenses, but McKinley has only played in 4 games so far, and Fowler has offered disappointing production most of the year. So it doesn't change the outlook for a team defense in an upside matchup. Allen Bailey and Steven Means look like the fill-in starters.

Falcons DE Dante Fowler (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Bears. He missed practice all week, though, and looks like a poor IDP option. DE Takk McKinley (groin) and LB Foye Oluokun are inactive.

Falcons DE Dante Fowler (ankle) and DE Takk McKinley (groin) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. McKinley missed practice all week and looks like a bad bet to play. Fowler missed the first 2 days before returning for a limited Friday. Neither should be in your IDP lineups, if you can help it. Elsewhere on the Atlanta defense, S Ricardo Allen (elbow) is out and LB Foye Oluokun (hamstring) is questionable. Oluokun missed Wednesday's practice but returned for limited workouts the past 2 days. There's upside to him in deeper IDP leagues, but obvious re-injury risk with the hamstring.

The Falcons have reached a 3-year deal with EDGE Dante Fowler worth up to $48 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fowler was a bust in Jacksonville after arriving as the 3rd pick of the 2015 NFL Draft. But he rebounded with the Rams, delivering 11.5 sacks, 16 tackles for loss and 16 QB hits last season. Fowler will be just 26 when the season begins. If he can continue performing the way he did as a Ram, Fowler would help Atlanta and be fantasy relevant. He'll carry more IDP upside if his new situation means a DL designation. The Rams, meanwhile, signed EDGE Leonard Floyd to a 1-year deal to take Fowler's place. The Bears dumped Floyd this week, but he arrives with more production behind him than Fowler brought with him from Jacksonville.

The Rams have reached a 1-year, $14.5 million deal with OLB Dante Fowler to keep the 24-year-old off the open market. It's an interesting contract. On one hand, it's a surprisingly large salary for a former #3 overall pick with just 16 total sacks through 3 seasons. (Fowler missed his rookie campaign with an ACL tear.) The money indicates that both sides expected Fowler to garner at least solid interest on the open market. At the same time, the fact that Fowler went for just a 1-year offer on the verge of his age-25 season points to it being somewhat of a "prove it" contract. Fowler contributed just 2 sacks in his 8 games with the Rams in 2018. Pro Football Focus rated the Rams version of Fowler just tied for 110th among edge players in pass-rushing productivity. (The 2018 Jaguars version tied for 28th.) IDP owners shouldn't pay Fowler much attention yet, especially because sticking with L.A. makes him a LB rather than a DE.

The Jaguars on Sunday announced team suspensions for CB Jalen Ramsey and DE Dante Fowler. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the moves come as a result of "violating team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars football player." Fowler reportedly got into multiple scuffles with teammate DE Yannick Ngakoue in practice, while Ramsey's misstep appears to have been his actions toward the media following the practice fights. The 2 have reportedly been suspended for a week, which could include the 2nd preseason game. The situations likely won't affect either's standing for the regular season or the team's defense on whole. It is just the latest issue for Fowler, though, who has already been suspended for Week 1 by the league and only came off the PUP list Saturday. The former early 1st-round pick already saw the team refuse the 5th-year option (for 2019) on his rookie contract.

The NFL has suspended Jaguars DE Dante Fowler for Week 1 of 2018 for violating the personal-conduct policy. The suspension stems from a 2017 arrest. Fowler has been a disappointing contributor since arriving in Jacksonville as a 1st-round pick in 2016 and doesn't sit high in our 2018 IDP rankings anyway.

Jaguars DE Dante Fowler tore his left ACL in Friday's 1st practice of rookie minicamp. The relative good news for Jacksonville is that veteran Chris Clemons -- who started every 2014 game at "Leo" and led the team with 8.5 sacks -- remains on board. And Andre Branch and Ryan Davis add talented depth. Losing Fowler doesn't necessarily crush a Jaguars D that has seemed to be moving in the right direction, but it's certainly disheartening for a franchise that has struggled for a while. Dynasty players in IDP leagues might want to move Fowler slightly down the board -- at least behind Vikings LB Eric Kendricks -- but ACL injuries don't necessarily alter careers anymore. We'll see how Fowler progresses through his rehab and how early he takes the field next offseason.

The Jaguars spent the 3rd pick of the 2015 NFL Draft on DE Dante Fowler. The former Gator seemed to have his sack production limited a bit by his role in college but flashed plenty of pass-rushing potential and looks like a 3-down player. He should slot into a high-ceiling sack role under HC Gus Bradley, who ran the Seattle defense during DE Chris Clemons' best years there. Fowler's landing at 4-3 DE rather than 3-4 OLB boosts his IDP value quite a bit.
