Summary

Bosa, undeterred by a lengthy holdout and injury that delayed his NFL debut, ran away with Defensive Rookie of the Year honors last year. He notched 10.5 sacks over just 12 games and announced his presence as a dominator among fantasy linemen. Bosa finished fifth in standard IDP scoring among DL as a rookie, and his upside stretches even further than that. He'll have a full offseason to prepare for 2017, and he'll almost certainly create more splash plays after strangely failing to forcing a fumble or bat down a pass as a rookie. All told, he's as strong a bet as anyone, J.J. Watt and Justin Houston included, to threaten 18+ sacks, so he'll likely spend the next 8-10 years perennially on the cusp of a top-10 IDP season.
