The Commanders on Tuesday made DT Daron Payne the first player to get the franchise tag in 2023. Payne demolished his previous high with 11.5 sacks in 2022 -- 6.5 more than he tallied as a 2018 rookie. Payne suggested a bump was coming, though. His QB hits climbed from 8 in 2020 to 15 in 2021 before a career-high 20 this past season. Payne also delivered his two largest tackle totals the past two years, though he didn't crack the top 12 among D-lineman in solos either year. We'd bet on some regression from his DL13 fantasy finish in 2022. Don't prioritize Payne for 2023 IDP leagues or as a dynasty target.

Washington DL Daron Payne is active for today's game against the Saints. He popped up on the Friday injury report with a toe issue that left him questionable, but Payne is available for IDP use.

Washington DL Daron Payne is questionable after apparently sustaining a toe injury in practice this week. Payne was not listed on the Wednesday or Thursday injury reports but missed Friday's workout. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
