Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Establishes multiple career highs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett racked up 69 tackles, 16 QB hits, 7.5 sacks and two forced fumbles while making 16 starts and earning his first career Pro Bowl nod in 2019.

The 26-year-old continues to be a monster for Atlanta's front seven, collecting an impressive 13.5 sacks, 32 QB hits and 20 tackles for loss the past two seasons. Jarrett was especially dominant in 2019, ranking among Pro Football Focus' top-five defensive tackles in terms of both run defense and pass rush, while placing behind only Aaron Donald and Cameron Heyward by measure of overall performance at the position. Jarrett will be on the second season of his four-year, $68 million deal in 2020 after establishing new career highs in tackles and sacks during his fifth pro campaign.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Tallies another sack in Week 16 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett accounted for three tackles and one sack during Sunday's 24-12 win against the Jaguars.

The ascending defensive star reached the six-sack mark for a second consecutive campaign, and simultaneously achieved 11-plus tackles for loss for the second time over the past three years. In addition to his run-stuffing prowess, Jarrett has been an exceptionally valuable interior lineman given his ability to disrupt the passer. Jarrett has 44 QB hits in 45 regular-season games since the start of 2017, and he has finally been rewarded with his first career Pro-Bowl nod. Jarrett looks to get after Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston in Week 17, a quarterback who has been sacked 46 times while committing an astronomical 33 giveaways on the year.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Earns first Pro Bowl nod of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett was named to the NFC Pro Bowl roster Tuesday, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

The 26-year-old Jarrett has been an all-around dominant presence on the interior for Atlanta, logging 65 tackles and 10 tackles for loss, along with 13 QB hits, 5.5 sacks and two forced fumbles thus far in 2019. Jarrett signed a four-year, $68 million contract with the team in July, and he continues to be one of the few bright spots for a Falcons defense that has finished bottom eight in points allowed over each of the past two seasons.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Racks up six tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett collected six tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss, during Sunday's 29-22 win against the 49ers.

The Pro-Bowl buzz continues to build around Jarrett, as the 2015 fifth-round draft choice now has 5.5-plus sacks in consecutive seasons, as well as a career-high 65 tackles with two games remaining in the 2019 campaign. Jarrett has tackles for loss in back-to-back outings, but he carries a five-game sack drought heading into a Week 16 matchup against a Jacksonville offensive line that ranks among the bottom half of the league with 36 sacks allowed.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Sack machine in Week 10 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett amassed 2.5 sacks during Sunday's 26-9 win against New Orleans.

The 26-year-old interior lineman spearheaded a breakout Week 10 for the Falcons' pass rush, as Atlanta generated six sacks on Saints quarterback Drew Brees after managing just seven sacks through the first eight outings of the year. In addition to his typical run-stuffing prowess, Jarrett has been emerging as a pocket disrupter of late, picking up QB hits in each of his past three appearances as well as 3.5 combined sacks over Atlanta's two most recent games against Seattle and New Orleans. Week 11 presents an opportunity for Jarrett to get after young Panthers signal-caller Kyle Allen, who has five lost fumbles already on the season.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Superb performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett made eight tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Seahawks.

The tackle tally was a single-game career high, and Jarrett now has 44 tackles and three sacks through eight games. It appears Jarrett will achieve multiple career bests this year, as the fifth-year pro is set up well to shatter his previous high of 55 stops, and he's on pace to match last year's six-sack total.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Ready for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett (abdomen) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Vaughn McClure of reports.

Jarrett was added to the injury report Wednesday as a non-participant, but the abdominal issue didnt end up impacting his availability for Week 8. The 26-year-old has 36 tackles (19 solo) with two sacks and two forced fumbles through seven games.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Picks up injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett (abdomen) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of reports.

Jarrett logged his lowest snap share (61 percent) of the season in Week 7 against the Rams, so perhaps he suffered this injury at some point during the loss. The fifth-year pro's absence could leave a major void on the Falcons' interior defensive line, which will be a problem against the Seahawks' run-heavy offense.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Racks up seven tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett compiled five solo tackles and two assists, including one tackle for loss, during Sunday's 53-32 loss to the Texans.

Freshly inked to a four-year, $68 million contract extension in July, Jarrett has so far been delivering for a Falcons defense that's often faltered. The 26-year-old defensive tackle has averaged one tackle for loss and nearly one QB hit per game, while establishing a pace through five weeks that is set to yield him six sacks for a second consecutive year. Atlanta's defense, meanwhile, ranks bottom 10 in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns allowed to opposing running backs while also collecting just five sacks as a team, the latter figure tying them with Miami and Denver for worst in the NFL.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett (elbow) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Texans.

Jarrett was held to limited participation Wednesday and Thursday, but he elevated to full speed Friday and will be ready to rock going forward. The fifth-year pro has registered 19 tackles and two sacks this season. He'll have a good chance to notch a sack in this outing, as Deshaun Watson has been dropped 18 times through four games, third most in the league.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Limited participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice with an elbow injury, Vaughn McClure of reports.

Jarrett battled a toe injury last week but avoided an injury designation and played 54 snaps against the Titans. The fact the 26-year-old is still practicing despite the new injury keeps him on track to play Week 5.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett (toe) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's tilt against the Titans, Turron Davenport of reports.

Jarrett was a full participant in Friday's practice and appears fully recovered from his toe injury. The fifth-year pass rusher is facing a prime matchup in IDP formats, considering that Marcus Mariota was sacked nine times by Jacksonville in Week 3.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Trending toward playing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett (toe) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Coach Dan Quinn believes Jarrett is "trending up" in regards to his chances of playing Sunday versus the Titans, according to Jason Butt of The Athletic. If he can shake the injury and suit up, Jarrett has a high IDP ceiling since Marcus Mariota was sacked nine times by the Jaguars in Week 3.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Injury not serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dan Quinn said Monday that he expects to have Jarrett (toe) available for practice near the end of the week, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Jarrett suffered a toe injury during Sunday's loss to the Colts. While it appears that the starting defensive tackle may not participate in practice to begin the week, it doesn't seem that Jarrett is nursing a long-term injury. It remains to be seen whether Jarrett will manage to suit up Week 4 versus the Titans.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Hurts toe Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett (toe) is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Colts, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

The injuries are stacking up on the Falcons' defense, as Takkarist McKinley (knee) and Keanu Neal (Achilles) have already left. Jarrett made one tackle for a loss before leaving this contest. Jack Crawford figures to take on Jarrett's workload for the time being.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Sacks in two straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett accounted for five total tackles and one sack during Sunday's 24-20 win against the Eagles.

Jarrett continues to generate pressure from the interior, now having accounted for a sack in each of his first two outings of 2019, after finishing out last season with a total of six. Having been rewarded with a four-year, $68 million contract over the summer, Jarrett now strives for his first Pro Bowl nod on behalf of a now-healthy and seemingly improved Falcons defense. It's encouraging to see that the front seven was more effective in containing the run in Week 2, limiting Philadelphia running backs to 2.6 yards per carry after giving up 5.3 yards per attempt to Vikings backs in Week 1.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Well-rounded performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett recorded five tackles (four solo), a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's 28-12 loss to the Vikings.

Jarrett is already living up to the massive extension ($17 million AAV) he signed this offseason by showcasing his versatility as a run-stopper and pass rusher. He was the only Falcons player to get to Kirk Cousins. Jarrett will have another tough matchup in Week 2, as he attempts to take down Eagles QB Carson Wentz, who was dropped just once in the season opener.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Signs extension before deadline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett is signing a four-year, $68 million contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jarrett and the Falcons appear to have reached an agreement just an hour or two before Monday's 4 p.m. ET deadline for franchise-tagged players. The 26-year-old defensive tackle averaged 51.7 tackles (27.3 solo) and 4.3 sacks over the past three seasons, including a career-high six sacks in 2018. The $17 million average annual value on his contract ranks third among defensive tackles, behind the Rams' Aaron Donald and the Eagles' Fletcher Cox.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Clock ticking on extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett will play the 2019 season under the $15.2 million franchise if he and the Falcons are unable to agree on a contract extension by Monady, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Arguably the Falcons' top defensive player last season, Jarrett collected six sacks, 16 quarterback hits, eight tackles for loss and three forced fumbles for an injury-plagued unit. General manager Thomas Dimitroff has been adamant that the team wants Jarrett to be a cornerstone of the defense for years to come, so there should be plenty of motivation for the organization and the defensive tackle to work out a long-term deal.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Signs franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett agreed to sign his $15.2 million franchise tag tender Monday, Matthew Tabeek of the Falcons' official site reports.

Jarrett's consent to the franchise tag guarantees he'll remain in Atlanta for 2019 and is a step in the right direction for the two sides to agree to terms of a lucrative multi-year contract. This objective is evidenced by general manager Thomas Dimitroff saying back in March, "Our aim is for (Jarrett) to be an integral part of our plan for many years to come and this allows us to extend our negotiating window." A versatile contributor with 23 tackles for loss and 29 quarterback hits over the past two seasons, Jarrett currently ranks as the NFL's fifth-best interior defensive lineman, per Pro Football Focus. His continued success will be essential to helping Atlanta improve upon a 25th-place finish in rush defense during 2018.
