Lawrence had back surgery in January 2017. The surgery was more serious than expected, according to team EVP Stephen Jones, but Lawrence is expected to be ready for training camp.

Summary

It wasn't that long ago when Lawrence was one of IDP's top rising stars. He compiled 7 sacks in his last 8 games during his 2015 sophomore campaign - a fact that had many bullish on him entering into last year. A suspension and injury issues derailed his 2016 season and made him virtually irrelevant for fantasy purposes, however. He's heading into a contract year and the Cowboys are counting on him to be a major contributor, but a second off-season back surgery muddies his value moving forward. He's worth serious consideration as a boom/bust DL4, but he shouldn't be drafted as a starter in most 10-team leagues. (May 14)
