2019 Fantasy Outlook
Jarrett is one of the most valuable assets on the Atlanta roster, as evidenced by the front office's willingness to sign him to a four-year, $68 million contract to replace the franchise tag. Arguably, Jarrett has been the team's best defender over the past two seasons, serving as a formidable run stuffer and consistent provider of pocket pressure for a Falcons unit that regressed last year after a strong showing in 2017. He's been extremely disruptive on the interior, amassing 29 QB hits, 10 sacks and 107 tackles (23 for loss) over the past two years. Read Past Outlooks

Racks up seven tackles in loss

October 6, 2019
Jarrett compiled five solo tackles and two assists, including one tackle for loss, during Sunday's 53-32 loss to the Texans.
ANALYSIS
Freshly inked to a four-year, $68 million contract extension in July, Jarrett has so far been delivering for a Falcons defense that's often faltered. The 26-year-old defensive tackle has averaged one tackle for loss and nearly one QB hit per game, while establishing a pace through five weeks that is set to yield him six sacks for a second consecutive year. Atlanta's defense, meanwhile, ranks bottom 10 in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns allowed to opposing running backs while also collecting just five sacks as a team, the latter figure tying them with Miami and Denver for worst in the NFL.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
2015
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.
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.
