Lynn Bowden Hope gone?

Oh wow I actually forgot he existed


x_Happy_x

I say that about my wife all the time /S /S /S /S /S /S /S


Lilspainishflea

Your wife is a guy?


orangehorton

Why do u still have him is the real question


mmdrew17

He’s probably a drop unless you have some really deep rosters


Waldorfalin

Tough to see him go. I feel like he randomly pops back up to relevance one year

Relevance, you can read I know it

He had a snap share in the 90s and an average of around 7 points the last 5 weeks last year. I’d call that relevant

I hate that he entered the draft last year. He really was a good WR. Kentuckys QB situation was a such a shit show they basically just ran the wildcat all season. He lost a year of development at WR and entered the draft as a tweener.


cmess1942

Was he really a tweener? I feel like the raiders were the only team that viewed him as a running back. Then gave up on him when he was a horrible pass blocker in camp. Which shouldn’t have been a surprise given that he had never done it before. He was definitely a project at running back. Plenty of talent, just never actually played the position.


L0ves2sp0Oge

That's my point. He was a good WR. Played his final season as a wildcat QB/RB. He should've stayed another year and played WR. Instead he went pro and was treated as a tweener.


cmess1942

I think he could’ve used another year as well. But do you think he was truly a tweener? My thought was 31 out of 32 teams view him as a WR. For some reason, the Raiders were the one that thought he was a RB.


L0ves2sp0Oge

I mean he played well as a tweener as a junior so I guess yeah he was a tweener. I just think he could be a much better WR. Raiders always do weird stuff in the draft.


dtay88

It's fun to say tweener


uberswank99

I'm going to be contrarian here and say I would keep him over White. White is 30 and out with a major injury. How much more do you expect to get out of him? Bowden on the other hand had some good games and could catch on somewhere else if not with the dolphins.


chriisLoL

Was it ever there?


RealDeal_3

My question is when was there ever Lynn Bowden hope?


jturphy

Who?


ChrisLBC562

Dude was a 3rd round pick just last year. 😢


CrystalLakeConcierge

I had to. I don’t get why “pass catching RB” wasn’t good enough for the Raiders and Dolphins. Trying to make him a WR was always a losing prospect. He’s small, never ran a route tree and was a QB in High School/College. RB was an easier conversion.


pincus1

What? He was a wide receiver in college, and the Raiders literally did try to make him a pass catching back. The Dolphins did try to put him back at receiver, but even there his role was pretty much that of a pass catching back and he never did run legitimate routes.


CrystalLakeConcierge

I may have it backwards. Either way he was completely mishandled/miscast.


samprobear

I don't know why you think his role "wasn't good enough" for the Dolphins, seeing as how he is still on the team, and would probably be like WR4 if he wasn't out for the season with injury. They've said repeatedly they like what they've seen out of him


AMP121212

Set him free, and don't look back.


Nadirofdepression

It was bad when the raiders drafted him to high and even worse when they still didn’t even want him


runningdreams

Yup


DeepFuckingSleepers

He might be someone to look out for next season, since it does say something that MIA decide to keep him on this sort of medical redshirt year instead of cutting him loose. But I cut bait as soon as I needed the IR spot.


thecp3

His upside is turning into a really good slot WR but if you need the ir spot he probably should be towards the bottom of your roster. I wouldn't beat myself up about it if you feel you roster needs you to cut him then do it.


DestinyDogDad

Ask this guy. He thinks Bowden is the second coming. https://www.reddit.com/r/DynastyFF/comments/hhmnzn/lynn_bowden_jr_is_a_problem/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf


badhoneybad

Bowden probably has more left in the tank than White. JJ Taylor and Rhamondre will be taking a lot of the receiving work for the patriots and white may not have a job next year. Saying that, if another player gets injured you can probably drop Bowden for them


blazingcom3t

I drafted Bowden his rookie year. Have dropped and added hi. Back probably 4 times. Never has anyone in my league picked him up. I was going to put him on IR but gus Edward's was more valuable and dropped him again. Coming into this year I thought there was a chance, but now going into his 3rd year and no statistical data showing that yards breakout you'd lie to see, I don't think he is worth the keep unless you have no one else needing that IR spot.


holmesriley

I cut him today. Roster Clogger.


Sgrcgjff

I just dropped him in my league that only had 3 IR spots to put Hasty on IR so yeah.
