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

Records 7.5 sacks as a rookie
DEWashington Football Team
January 10, 2021
Young (ankle), who logged three tackles in Washington's playoff loss to the Buccaneers on Saturday, finished the 2020 regular season with 44 tackles, 7.5 sacks and four forced fumbles.
ANALYSIS
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Young was limited late in Saturday's game with what's being described as a mild ankle sprain. It's the sort of injury that would have been an issue for the pass rusher had Washington advanced, but the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft will now have the entire offseason to heal up and prepare for his second year as a pro. Looking ahead to next season, Young, who turns 22 in April, will continue to be a key pass-rushing cog on his team's stout front four while working in a starting defensive end role.
