Trey Flowers Fantasy Football News 2019

Lions DE Trey Flowers sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. We'll see whether he can progress through the league protocol in time for Week 12, but this isn't the 1st concussion of Flowers' career.

The Lions have activated DE Trey Flowers from the PUP list. NFL.com's Jelani Scott reports that the free-agent addition joined his team for practice Saturday. Flowers opened camp on the PUP as he worked back from offseason shoulder surgery, a known issue at his signing. We'll watch his progress, but Flowers should be fine to draft as planned in IDP leagues.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that former Patriots DE Trey Flowers will be signing with the Lions when free agency opens Wednesday. Flowers tallied 7, 6.5 and 7.5 sacks over the past 3 seasons but carries further upside in the form of hidden pressures. Pro Football Focus graded Flowers 8th among all 4-3 DEs and counted the 11th most pressures for the position in 2018. Flowers rated in a similar range each of the previous 2 seasons as well. In Detroit, he'll rejoin former New England DC Matt Patricia (now the Lions HC). Expect to find Flowers in DL2 territory in our 2019 IDP projections.

Patriots S Patrick Chung and DE Trey Flowers (concussions) are both active for today's game against the Dolphins. Both make sense as IDP options depending on league size and your other available options.

Patriots S Patrick Chung and DE Trey Flowers are questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Each guy missed Week 3 with a concussion. They put in limited practices this week, and Flowers told reporters Wednesday he expected to be ready to play Sunday. We'll see about the status of each starter on Sunday.

The Patriots on Saturday ruled DE Trey Flowers and S Patrick Chung out for Sunday night's game at Detroit. Each is dealing with a concussion. We'll see about their progress heading into Week 4.

Patriots S Patrick Chung left Sunday's loss to the Jaguars with a concussion. He and DE Trey Flowers must pass through the league protocol before returning to play. We'll watch the status of each guy heading toward Sunday night's visit to Detroit.

Patriots DE Trey Flowers left the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a concussion. The team quickly announced that he had entered the protocol. We saw a couple of preseason instances where a player was reported to have entered the league protocol but turned out to not have a concussion. Barring a return today, though, Flowers figures to be monitored all week and a question mark for Week 3.

Patriots DE Trey Flowers didn't appear in a single preseason game and put in limited work throughout training-camp practices because of an undisclosed injury. But MassLive's Andrew Callahan reports that Flowers is expected to play in Week 1. "Yeah, man. That's the plan," Flowers said Sunday. "I play football, so it's time for football to be played." IDP owners should plan to use Flowers against the Texans. We'll adjust expectations beyond that if we see his playing time limited.

Patriots DE Trey Flowers (rib) is active for today's game against the Steelers. He missed last week but is OK to use as you normally would in your IDP league.

The Patriots on Sunday downgraded DE Trey Flowers to out for Monday night's game against the Dolphins. It'll mark the 2nd straight game he has missed with his rib injury. LB/DE Eric Lee stepped in against the Bills last week and played 85% of the snaps. DE Deatrich Wise also saw a boost in playing time, staying on the field for 86.6% of snaps. Each is an option if you need to replace Flowers in your IDP lineup.

Patriots DE Trey Flowers is questionable for Monday night's game against the Dolphins. He put in limited practices all week, just as he did last week before going inactive against the Bills. Make sure you have an insurance option available if you plan to wait for Flowers in your IDP lineup.

The Patriots late Saturday night ruled DE Trey Flowers out for today's game against the Bills because of a rib injury. That removes the top pass rusher from a New England defense that has played well for weeks, which dings the upside for the team D against Buffalo. It's still a starter-worthy fantasy defense, though.

Patriots DE Trey Flowers (shin) is active for today's game against the Rams. He popped up on the Thursday injury report but put in limited workouts each of the final 2 days. Use him as you normally would in an upside matchup for IDP scoring.

The Patriots didn't bother to bring DE Jabaal Sheard to San Francisco this weekend for Sunday's game against the 49ers. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that they left him behind because of disappointment with his performance. This follows in line with the role flips for Sheard and 2nd-year DE Trey Flowers over the past couple of weeks. Sheard's deactivation only further cements Flowers' role for this week (while enhancing his outlook beyond Week 11).
