2018 Fantasy Outlook
Jarrett has taken great strides since being a fifth-round draft pick of the Falcons in 2015, as he continues to mold himself into one of the league's elite interior defensive linemen. Evolving from a rotational player as a rookie to now a full-time starter, he's increased his tackle and sacks counts in each season (55 tackles and four sacks in 16 starts last year). Jarrett is a wildly underrated defensive tackle who will soon become a household name if he continues on his current trajectory. The 25-year-old led the position with 16 tackles for loss or no gain on run plays during 2017, per Pro Football Focus. Read Past Outlooks

Absent for voluntary workout

April 15, 2019
Jarrett was not in attendance for the start of voluntary team workouts Monday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Atlanta elected to apply a $15.2 million franchise tag to Jarrett earlier this offseason, but there remains optimism that the two sides can agree on a long-term extension prior to the July 15 deadline. Falcons owner Arthur Blank has stated that it is the team's intention for Jarrett to remain in Atlanta for the entirety of his professional playing career, but a high bar has been set for the terms of a new contract given that Cowboys defensive lineman DeMarcus Lawrence inked a five-year, $105 million deal in early April. Jarrett's new deal is projected to be valued in a similar range to that of Lawrence, given his elite production over the past two seasons and the fact that he will still be just 26 years old when the season kicks off in September. With 52 combined tackles and six sacks in 2018, Jarrett ranked as the NFL's fifth-best interior defensive lineman, according to Pro Football Focus.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
A fifth-round gem out of Clemson, Jarrett has made a difference on the defensive line in his two seasons in the league. His total tackles jumped from 24 to 48 in year two, and he also racked up three sacks in his second season. The addition of Dontari Poe during free agency should mean Jarrett will face fewer double teams in 2017, and there's no reason to think he can't continue to improve. If he can stay healthy, 50-plus tackles and a handful of sacks could certainly be in the cards for Jarrett.
Jarrett, a fifth-round pick in the 2015 draft, will provide depth at defensive tackle. He won't see much action unless injuries strike.
