Demarcus Lawrence, DE, Cowboys
After a quiet start to his return from a 4-game suspension, Lawrence has seen his playing time increase significantly the past 2 weeks. He grew from part time the 1st 2 weeks to 51.3% in Week 7 and then 66+% each of the past 2 games.
More importantly, Lawrence has registered a QB hit in 3 straight games, including his 1st sack of the season against Pittsburgh on Sunday. Lawrence also tallied 4 solo tackles, including 2 for loss, and forced a fumble. He looked like the guy that finished last season with 7 sacks over the final 8 games.
The Week 11 visit by the Ravens doesn’t present the greatest sack matchup, but Baltimore does lead the league in pass attempts as of this writing. That volume spells opportunity in a game that finds Dallas heavily favored. After that comes more favorable sack matchups with Washington and Minnesota.
