2019 Fantasy Outlook
Ngakoue skipped minicamp in June and remained away from the Jaguars for the early part of training camp due to his contract situation, but he ultimately joined the team in early August. The 24-year-old posted 9.5 sacks in 16 games in 2018, but he was unable to replicate the playmaking ability from the previous two seasons when he forced 10 fumbles. Ngakoue has only 81 tackles (69 solo) through his first three seasons and could significantly increase his IDP value if he can become more of a factor against the run. Read Past Outlooks

The Jaguars placed their franchise tag on Ngakoue on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Ngakoue expressed disinterest in coming to terms with Jaguars on a long-term deal earlier this month, a hint that he may look to pursue a trade now that he's constrained by the franchise tag. Entering his age-25 season, Ngakoue boasts four straight campaigns with at least eight sacks and 14 quarterback hits. He also forced four or more fumbles in three of those four seasons. In any event, Ngakoue's youth and history of production at a premier position will likely lead to a future long-term deal of at least $20 million per year, no matter what club he eventually comes to terms with.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Ngakoue followed up a fantastic rookie season with a 12-sack campaign in 2017, and now has 20 sacks and 10 forced fumbles over his first two seasons. Even more impressive is that the 23-old-year was largely feast or famine in 2017, recording a sack in only seven games and having six games where he tallied one or zero tackles. Ngakoue, a 2016 third-round pick, could be in store for an even better season for Jacksonville's top-tier defense if he can exhibit a bit more consistency in his third season.
A third-round selection in 2016, Ngakoue was a pleasant surprise as a rookie, racking up a team-best 8.0 sacks and routinely outperforming 2015 No. 3 overall pick Dante Fowler. While Fowler will be given every opportunity to prove his worth, Ngakoue will be breathing down Fowler's neck for snaps. The young duo will team with veteran free agent addition Calais Campbell in what's expected to be an improved group of edge-rushers. In 2016, the Jaguars tied for 19th in the league in total sacks (33.0), while forcing an AFC-low 13 takeaways.
