2020 Fantasy Outlook
There are only so many sacks and snaps to go around in Washington, but it still somehow feels wrong to overlook Sweat even as he competes against the league's best defensive line rotation for snaps. Sweat (6-6, 260) should be a big reason why this line can prove itself as the league's best. His athletic tools are off the charts - his outrageous 4.41-second 40 supplemented by a 36-inch vertical, 125-inch broad jump and immense reach (35 and 3/4-inch arms). After posting 50 tackles and seven sacks on 693 snaps last year, the main obstacle for Sweat in 2020 is his playing time projection against Chase Young, Ryan Kerrigan, Matthew Ioannidis, Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sweat had top-10 buzz throughout much of the pre-draft process, coming off 23 sacks in his final two years at Mississippi State and then posting truly absurd numbers at the combine. His 4.41 40-yard dash set a modern record for defensive linemen, while his vertical jump (36 inches) and broad jump (125 in.) were nearly as impressive for a 260-pounder. Sweat's draft stock tumbled amid reports of a heart condition, but subsequent reports suggest the initial information may be subjective or even inaccurate. Whatever the case, Washington believes it got a steal with the 26th overall pick, potentially adding a dominant pass rusher to put on the opposite side of Ryan Kerrigan at outside linebacker.
