2020 Fantasy Outlook
At the risk of assigning unfair expectations, it's nonetheless difficult to see a slow start to Young's NFL career. More than his own level of play, the greatest threat to Young's rookie production is the risk of a low snap count. Montez Sweat is poised to break out at defensive end, yet longtime great Ryan Kerrigan is probably still good enough to push for 800 or so snaps, and 2017 second-round pick Ryan Anderson is another threat to steal hundreds of defensive end snaps. Still, Young projects as an eventual threat to lead the league in sacks annually, and his talent might be compelling to the point of earning the most snaps among Washington linemen. His floor, unfortunately, may be something like 550 snaps. Read Past Outlooks

Young (groin) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Young has managed through the groin injury ever since he suffered the issue in Week 3 against Cleveland, so the fact that he's been cleared this early in the week is a positive sign. The rookie played in 92 percent of defensive snaps last week, so expect a similar workload for Young now that he's been cleared for Sunday's game against Dallas.
