NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Dallas Cowboys have officially placed their franchise tag on defensive end Demarcus Lawrence. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

This is what we kind of knew would happen, as Lawrence is considered one of the league's premier defensive ends. After racking up 15 sacks and 52 quarterback hurries in 2017 (both ranked 2nd among defensive ends), the Cowboys will continue to work towards getting an extension done with him. The Cowboys defense took a step back in 2017, though Lawrence was one of the bright spots. His franchise tag takes another one of the elite players off the free agent market.
