Lynn Bowden Jr. could see snaps at QB this season?

According to Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson, rookie offensive weapon Lynn Bowden Jr. could be used at quarterback this season.

Fantasy Impact

The No. 80 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft won the Paul Hornung award for the nation’s most versatile college football player, so it’s no surprise the Raiders want to take full advantage of his skill set. Right now, Bowden is working out with the running backs, but Olson sees him expanding his repertoire. Olson said, "you see the game changing from year to year, the use of the RPOs (run-pass options) and the use of the Taysom Hills, those type of players that played the RPO-style offense in college, they become valuable." Look for Bowden to be utilized all over the field for Jon Gruden’s new look Las Vegas Raiders.

Lynn Bowden Jr. signs rookie contract with Raiders

Third-round draft choice out of Kentucky RB/WR Lynn Bowden Jr. has signed his four-year rookie deal with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Bowden started his career at Kentucky as a wide receiver before transitioning to running back last season. He didn’t disappoint as a true RB, rushing 1,468 yards and 13 TDs on 185 carries (7.9 avg.). He’s listed as a running back on the Raiders official depth chart, but Jon Gruden has said he’ll be utilized in multiple ways on offense this season. He’s nothing more than a dart throw late in redraft leagues, but has some appeal due to his designation as a RB in dynasty formats.

Lynn Bowden Jr. selected No. 80 by Las Vegas Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders have selected wide receiver Lynn Bowden Jr. with the No. 80 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

GM Mike Mayock and Head Coach Jon Gruden make another flashy pick by taking WR/RB Bowden Jr. out of Kentucky. They went with Ruggs III in the first round of the Draft and now take a guy that has played three different offensive positions in college, including quarterback. He’s an elite athlete who projects as a WR/RB-type in the NFL, similar to a guy like De’Anthony Thomas who can line up anywhere on the field.
