2018 Fantasy Outlook
Liuget will miss the first four games of the regular season after violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. Just two years into a five-year extension signed back in 2015, the 28-year-old will need to see a drastic turnaround in production if he has any hopes of returning to the Chargers in 2019.

Meets with Giants

April 12, 2019
Liuget (quadriceps) met with the Giants recently, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Liuget missed the first four weeks of 2018 for a PED suspension and landed on injured reserve in November with a torn right quadriceps tendon. He said in late February that he was 80-to-90 percent healthy, which suggests he's close to full strength at this point in time. The 29-year-old was in decline even before his injury/suspension-plagued season, but his wealth of experience playing 3-4 defensive end could make him a nice fit with the Giants. Liuget averaged 733 snaps, 50 tackles and 5.7 sacks per season during his 2012-14 peak.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Liuget didn't record a sack in 2016, the first time the 27-year-old hasn't logged at least one over his six-year career, but the defensive end is still a formidable pass rusher when given the opportunity. With Joey Bosa on the opposite end, Liuget will once again take a back seat to the newcomer, meaning IDP should only project Liuget as a low-end DL2 candidate.
Liuget suffered a season-ending foot injury last year and underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in the offseason, but he should be ready before Week 1. When healthy, Liuget is one of the better interior linemen in the league, demonstrating the ability to approach 60 tackles and seven sacks at separate points. Heading into his age-26 season with third overall pick Joey Bosa providing additional heat on the other side, Liuget might finally approach 60 tackles and seven sacks in the same season. Even so, he likely maxes out as a low-end DL2.
Liuget is the Chargers most dependable defensive lineman and has averaged 50 tackles per season over the last three years. He lead the Bolts with 4.5 sacks and 19 tackles for a loss in 2014 and will be looking for more of the same this year.
Despite playing the entire 2013 season with a torn labrum, Liuget managed to start every game and racked up an impressive 42 tackles and 5.5 sacks. He is looking to make an even bigger impact in 2014.
Liuget made huge strides in his second season as a pro last year, notching 51 tackles and seven sacks. Heading into 2013, the Chargers are hoping he continues to improve on those numbers as the starter at one end spot.
Liuget will start at left defensive end in 2012, but the Charges will likely mix in Jacques Cesaire as well. Liuget's upside is fairly limited, however, as he only managed a total of 19 tackles and one sack in 2011 despite starting 13 games.
While head coach Norv Turner is hesitant to call his rookie pass-rusher the new starter at defensive end, but most everyone in San Diego believes that Liuget's performance on the field will make that a reality sooner rather than later. The Chargers' pass rush has left something to be desired these past few seasons, and they drafted Liuget with the hope that he can help create some pressure from the end, and that his presence will command some double teams, thereby creating more opportunities for the linebackers.
