Young looked the part in flashes as a rookie, but he left plenty of room for improvement. According to Pro Football Focus, the #2 overall pick ranked just 63rd in pass-rush win rate among 120 EDGE players who saw 130+ pass-rushing opportunities. Young tied for 34th among all EDGE players in total pressures, though, and rated 22nd in pass-rushing grade -- improving in that area over the season's 2nd half. That's especially noteworthy, because Young dealt with a pair of lower-body injuries early last season.
A hip-flexor issue from training camp lingered into the regular season, and then Young sustained a groin injury in Week 3. Young left that contest early but missed just 1 more game. He went the next 3 outings without a QB hit, however, and failed to register 1 in 5 of 6 games following the groin injury. Young then racked up 8 QB hits and 4 sacks over his final 6 regular-season contests.
Barring another training-camp setback on the health front this year, we're betting on the talent in Year 2. Young has the upside to challenge for the top spot among fantasy D-linemen. It doesn't hurt that he resides in a loaded defense.
