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

General manager Thomas Dimitroff said of Jarrett on Thursday, "We would like to have (him) back for many years to come," Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Jarrett continues to emerge as one of the NFL's most disruptive defensive tackles, collecting 52 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and three forced fumbles in 2018, his fourth pro campaign. He established himself as a fearsome run stopper in 2017 by leading all interior defensive linemen with 16 tackles at or behind the line of scrimmage (per Pro Football Focus), but this year he flashed talent as a pass rusher as well by finishing second on the team with six sacks. With his contract set to expire over the offseason, Atlanta seems determined to reach amicable terms with its young defensive stalwart.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2015
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.
