2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sweat had top-10 buzz throughout much of the pre-draft process, coming off 23 sacks in his final two years at Mississippi State and then posting truly absurd numbers at the combine. His 4.41 40-yard dash set a modern record for defensive linemen, while his vertical jump (36 inches) and broad jump (125 in.) were nearly as impressive for a 260-pounder. Sweat's draft stock tumbled amid reports of a heart condition, but subsequent reports suggest the initial information may be subjective or even inaccurate. Whatever the case, Washington believes it got a steal with the 26th overall pick, potentially adding a dominant pass rusher to put on the opposite side of Ryan Kerrigan at outside linebacker.

Notches first career sack

September 24, 2019
Sweat finished Monday's loss with seven tackles (four solo) and a sack.
ANALYSIS
Sweat recorded a season high in tackles, including his first sack in the NFL. With that said, his value in IDP formats remains relatively low, but the 26th overall selection from this past year's draft boasts a 4.41 40-yard dash time, which makes him a very intriguing defensive prospect.
