Fowler will start alongside Cody Latimer in the Giants' Week 2 tilt against the Bills with Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Golden Tate (suspension) unavailable, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.
Fowler will join his former Broncos teammate to form the top wideout duo for Eli Manning in a tough matchup versus a stingy Bills secondary. The 28-year-old kicked off his second Giants season by bringing in all five of his targets for 40 yards against the Cowboys in Week 1 while logging 50 snaps.
Fowler is preparing for an expanded role in Sunday's game against Buffalo, Michael Eisen of Giants.com reports.
Golden Tate (suspension) and Sterling Shepard (concussion) are ruled out, while Cody Latimer (calf) will be a game-time decision. Less than two months after he entered training camp on the roster bubble, Fowler is looking at the possibility of a No. 1 wide receiver role for Week 2. A career mark of 6.8 yards per target doesn't bode well for his chances to produce efficiently against an excellent Buffalo secondary led by cornerback Tre'Davious White. That said, Fowler caught each of his five targets for 40 yards in last week's loss to Dallas, and he could see more work this coming Sunday out of sheer necessity. The healthy options behind him are Russell Shepard, Cody Core and TJ Jones.
Fowler caught all five of his targets for 40 yards Sunday against the Cowboys.
With Golden Tate suspended three more games and Sterling Shepard nursing a concussion, Fowler could see more work in the near term. Just temper expectations as Fowler's not much of a big-play threat, and Evan Engram, Cody Latimer and Saquon Barkley are still around.
