Grady Jarrett has played at an elite level on the interior for the past two seasons, prompting the Falcons to place the franchise tag on him for a cool $15.2m. Prior to camp, though, the two sides came to a long-term agreement to the tune of four years, $68m. On the field, Jarrett's combination of power, technique and work rate should keep the 26-year-old firmly among the league's finest at the position. He doesn't offer so much as a fantasy commodity, albeit he makes the players around him better, occupying two blockers on most snaps to free his teammates up. He is a good starter in DT-required formats, but should probably be considered as a rotational option at best in standard league formats. (July 18)

Falcons | Grady Jarrett agrees to extension (Mon Jul 15, 02:49 PM) - Atlanta Falcons DT Grady Jarrett reportedly reached an agreement on a four-year contract worth $68 million on Monday, July 15.

Our View: Jarrett had been designated as the team's franchise player and they get the deal done before Monday's deadline. While he's not going to snare many sacks (although he did have a career high 6.0 sacks in 2018), Jarrett does create a lot of interior pressure. He's a disruptive player and a handful for opponents inside. Jarrett is a nasty player and fun to watch on Sundays.
