RB - FA
Week 13 Outlook
The Atlanta Falcons beefed up their run-blocking unit by signing former Titans fullback Jalston Fowler to a one-year deal. Fowler spent some time with Seattle earlier this offseason and will compete with Ricky Ortiz, who is injured, for lead-blocking duties.
Fowler was a fourth-round pick by Tennessee in 2015. Known merely as a no-nonsense blocker, Fowler has all of 10 career carries and is completely irrelevant in fantasy leagues unless you're in an all fullback league.
The fourth-round rookie from Alabama was mostly a lead blocker in college. In the pros, Jalston Fowler is getting more chances to run. In Sunday's loss to the Colts, Fowler scored his first career TD on a 1-yard run late in the fourth quarter.
He totaled four carries for nine yards to go with the score. Fowler had one rush for three yards in Week 2. With the Titans backfield very unproven, expect to see Fowler being utilized more often than not in goalline situations.
