Summary

Heyward is the prototypical 3-4 end. He is a big body with the strength to hold ground against double teams at the point of attack and enough athleticism to contribute to the pass rush. In 2017 he did more than simply contribute to the pass rush, Heyward led the team with 12 sacks which was also the most by any 3-4 lineman in the game. Impressive as it is, this is not something we can expect from him on a regular basis. In fact heading into last season Heyward's career best was 7.5 sacks in 2014. Fantasy owners should approach Heyward as a decent second starter or quality DL3 with upside. Let someone else overdraft him based on last year's inflated sack total. (May 27)
