Dolphins wide receiver Lynn Bowden Jr. limped off the field with a hamstring injury during a joint practice with the Falcons last week and he won’t be back on the field for Miami at all this year.
The Dolphins put Bowden on injured reserve Tuesday as they cut their roster down to 80 players. Bowden will not be eligible to return this season unless the Dolphins release him and he signs with another team.
Bowden was a Raiders third-round pick in 2020 and he was traded to the Dolphins before the start of the season. He had 28 catches for 211 yards and nine carries for 32 yards in 10 games as a rookie. He was part of a crowded and talented WR group in Miami.
MIA WR Lynn Bowden - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Buffalo Bills
Lynn Bowden unfortunately had a poor outing last week after a string of nice games. Bowden saw just three targets, finishing 2-8 as a receiver while adding one carry for eight yards. His value will likely take even more of a hit if DeVante Parker is able to return from injury this week. Bowden was a fun option for a few weeks, but he won't be a great Week 17 play. We have him as a low-end WR5.
