2019 Fantasy Outlook
Flowers lined up just about everywhere in New England's amoeba fronts, and the Lions figure to give him as many snaps as he can handle after signing him to a five-year, $90 million contract. With 164 tackles and 21 sacks in his last 2,096 snaps, Flowers presents a compelling upside scenario if he can exceed 900 snaps this year. If the contract is any indication, Flowers' offseason shoulder surgery is a non-issue. While he missed three games the last two years, he has 70-tackle, 10-sack upside if he plays 16 games in 2019.

Flowers registered eight tackles and one sack during Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Eagles.
ANALYSIS
Flowers was quiet in his first two games as a Lion, but he came through big Sunday and was a big reason why Detroit was able to contain the Eagles' potent-but-injury-depleted offensive attack. The Lions will need their $90 million dollar offseason investment to have another productive day in Week 4 if Detroit is to have any chance of toppling Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2015
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.
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.
