Fantasy Impact:

Young exited Sunday’s win early after suffering a non-contact injury to his knee. He underwent evaluation and was diagnosed with a torn ACL. This is a massive blow to a Washington defense that has underwhelmed all year. The former No. 2 overall pick will miss the remainder of the season. Young finishes the 2021 campaign with 26 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles over nine games. The 22-year-old will focus on rehab and look to fully recover for the 2022 season. James Smith-Williams should see an uptick in snaps while Young is sidelined.
