Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

JPP's top-3 finish among D-linemen last year means you don't really need to make a case for him ranking this high. Rather, the question is why not rank him higher?

It's simple, really. Pierre-Paul isn't the most efficient pass-rusher around. He played the 2nd most pass-rushing snaps among all edge players last season, yet tied for just 22nd in total pressures (with Maxx Crosby). JPP delivered 2 fewer QB hits (16) than he did in 6 fewer games in 2019.

His fantasy stats benefited from a pair of INTs -- his first since 2013 -- a career-high 4 forced fumbles and 2 recoveries. JPP also defensed 6 total passes, 2 more than his combined total for the previous 2 seasons.

Pierre-Paul has always been a cross-category scoring threat, his primary appeal. But there are more efficient pass-rushers and tacklers around, making them safer week-to-week bets. Heading into his age-32 season, there's also risk that JPP loses some big-play flair.

Buccaneers EDGE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder, hand) is active for today's game against Washington. He has been playing through questionable tags since returning from his shoulder injury. JPP saw his normal playing time last week and should be fine for IDP use -- especially in a high-upside matchup.

Buccaneers EDGE Jason Pierre-Paul is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. He sat out practice all week with shoulder and hand injuries, despite coming off the bye. But JPP did the same thing for Week 8 and played through a questionable tag for his highest snap share since Week 1. We'll confirm Pierre-Paul's status Sunday, but expect him to play.

Buccaneers EDGE Jason Pierre-Paul is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. JPP has been managing the shoulder and hand injuries since before this week. He missed practice all this week, though, after putting in limited workouts all last week and playing through a questionable tag. HC Bruce Arians told reporters Friday just that Pierre-Paul has a chance to play Sunday. Unfortunately, the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff means we might not know his status before the early games. We'll keep an eye out for any updates.
