Garrett hurt his left foot in practice on June 14 and was seen in a walking boot afterwards. He was diagnosed with a lateral foot sprain but is expected to ready for camp.

Summary

Garrett was the consensus top pick in this year's draft. With the Browns shifting to a 4-3 base scheme they needed a star pass rusher. In Garrett they have a player coming off a three year college career that produced 32.5 sacks. He probably would have had a handful more if not for dealing with a sore knee over much of 2016. Garrett is more than a pass rusher though. At 6'4" and 272 pounds, he is just as tough as a run defender. Garrett is set to be a cornerstone of the Browns defense for years to come. Fantasy owners need to keep in mind that defensive ends rarely have huge seasons as rookies. While Garrett may soon take his place among the fantasy elite at the position, we should not count on that happening in 2016. For this year we should probably consider him a quality second starter with upside. (May 30)
