2019 Fantasy Outlook
Charlton has been a disappointment to date in the NFL, recording only four sacks in 27 games over two seasons, but with David Irving gone and Robert Quinn suspended for two games to begin the year, he'll get at least one more chance with the Cowboys to make good on his first-round pedigree.

$Signed a four-year, $10.03 million contract with the Cowboys in May of 2017. Waived by the Cowboys in September of 2019. Claimed off waivers by the Dolphins in September of 2019.
Sacks in consecutive weeks

September 30, 2019
Charlton finished Miami's 30-10 loss to the Chargers on Sunday with six tackles (four solo) and a sack.
Charlton was able to bring the opposing quarterback down for a sack Sunday, giving the third-year pro a sack in each of his first two games of 2019. Not on the field for the season's first two contests, Charlton has seen his role with the Dolphins increase over the past two weeks, playing 48 snaps in Week 4 after logging 30 snaps the previous week. Still yet to make a real impression in his NFL career, the 24-year-old defensive end is definitely trending in the right direction.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The 28th overall pick in the 2017 draft, Charlton started his career slowly but showed flashes of his pass-rushing ability as the season wore on, recording all three of his sacks after Week 8. DeMarcus Lawrence remains the lead dog on the Cowboys' defensive line, but if Charlton can take a step forward now that he has a year of NFL experience under his belt, he could produce some interesting IDP numbers.
Drafted 28th overall by the Cowboys, Charlton has an enviable combination of length and athleticism that could eventually allow him to develop into the kind of dominant edge rusher the Cowboys have lacked since DeMarcus Ware left as a free agent. Charlton's production at Michigan was inconsistent, however, and he has a lot of work ahead of him in the weight room and on the practice field before he potentially reaches that ceiling. Expect the rookie to be another body in the DE rotation early on, with the potential to make a more substantial impact in the second half.
