2018 Fantasy Outlook
When Flowers entered the NFL, the concern was that he had a defensive end's build and skill set but a defensive tackle's athleticism, rendering him useless at both. The opposite has proven true, as his pass-rushing skills overcame his athletic limitations, and his ability to play in traffic allows him to contribute from the interior just as easily as the edge. While he doesn't look like the sort of end to pile up double-digit sacks, Flowers' ability to provide solid tackle and sack production allows him to match the IDP utility of plenty of double-digit sack guys.

Officially signs with Detroit

March 14, 2019
Flowers (shoulder) officially signed with the Lions on Thursday.
Flowers agreed to a five-year deal that can pay him up to $90 million, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. The $18 million average annual value is not only more than what Flowers could have made on the franchise tag, but it also makes him the fifth-highest paid defender in the league -- while signaling Detroit's total confidence that Flowers won't have any long-term ramifications from the shoulder surgery he underwent this offseason.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Flowers, who turns 24 in August, finished last season with 45 tackles and a team-high seven sacks in 16 games. The 2015 fourth-rounder logged eight starts in 2016, and assuming he becomes a lineup fixture at defensive end, the 6-2, 265-pounder will be on the IDP radar thanks to his ability to get to the QB.
Flowers is a a high-motor player who shows a lot of violence in traffic, making him a nice fit as a passing-down pass rusher from the tackle spot. On earlier downs Flowers should help set the edge against the run. A move to defensive tackle could be in the cards for the Arkansas product if he puts on about 15 pounds.
