2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 12th overall pick in the 2020 Draft, Parsons graded as the top defensive player in the entire class on some boards. His sideline-to-sideline speed and burst to the ball are elite, giving him massive IDP upside as a tackle vacuum who also can rush the passer and handle coverage assignments. While he needs to refine his reads and positioning and learn when to lay back rather than be in all-out attack mode, physically there's little Parsons can't do on the field. The only thing standing between him and huge numbers as a rookie might be the competition for snaps from holdovers Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch. Read Past Outlooks

Two sacks in Sunday's loss
LBDallas Cowboys
November 22, 2021
Parsons recorded four tackles, including two sacks, in Sunday's loss to Kansas City, adding a third QB hit and a forced fumble.
ANALYSIS
With Randy Gregory (calf) and DeMarcus Lawrence (foot) both still on IR, Parsons was once again forced to line up as an edge rusher more often than not, and his speed and athleticism gave Kansas City's tackles fits. The rookie is only the second player in the last 20 years to rack up 40-plus tackles and eight-plus sacks in his first 10 NFL games, joining Von Miller in a very exclusive club, and he's the only player in the league so far this season with 60-plus tackles and five-plus sacks. Parsons' next sack will also break the Dallas franchise rookie record of 8.0, set by likely Hall of Famer DeMarcus Ware in 2005. In short, the Penn State product is doing things few other players in history have done, and Parsons has already established himself as the heart of the Cowboys' resurgent defense.
