Pierre-Paul had two abdominal and two groin surgeries in one procedure this offseason. He was non-committal about his return timetable but most expect him to be ready for training camp.

Summary

There was a lot of uncertainty surrounding JPP heading into the 2016 regular season. He severely damaged his hand in a fireworks accident and had to adjust his pass-rushing approach. Although his play against the run remained quite strong, he only had 1.5 sacks through the season's first 11 games, which caused frustration among some fantasy owners. That quickly changed however, as Pierre-Paul logged 5.5 sacks over his next two games and erased all doubts from people's minds about his ability to perform at a high level. He wound up suffering an injury and missing the remainder of the season after that production explosion, but the Giants saw enough to reward him with four-year, $62 million contract this off-season. There's always some concern of production falloff after a player signs a big contract, but JPP's high floor/high ceiling profile makes him an easy top 7 selection at the defensive end position.
