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

Makes first NFL catch
WRMiami Dolphins
September 21, 2020
Bowden secured his only target for a loss of one yard during Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Bills.
ANALYSIS
Bowden was one of nine Dolphins to catch a pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick during the Week 2 loss. The rookie could see his role increase as the season continues, but for now, he's not on the fantasy radar. Bowden, who was drafted by the Raiders as a running back, remains listed as a wide receiver by Miami and has yet to log a single carry.
