Summary

Jerry Hughes will turn 31 years old this summer, but he's coming off one of the best years of his career. Unfortunately, his fantasy stats didn't fully reflect how great he was in 2018 as he generated a lot of pressure that didn't convert into sacks. He was scheduled to become a free agent after the 2019 season but the Bills recognized his importance to the team and signed him to a 2-year contract extension in May. With some expected improvements on the offensive side of the ball, Hughes should get more pass rush opportunities this year. The addition of Ed Oliver playing next to him on the defensive line should also make it more difficult for offenses to key on him in their blocking schemes. He is a solid DE2 with top-12 potential if he can convert more of those pressures into sacks this year. (May 26)
