Ngakoue has been extremely consistent and productive since entering the league in 2016. During that five-year span, he's registered 45.5 sacks (never dipping below eight in a season) and he's forced a whopping 19 fumbles. He's operated a lot as a situational pass-rusher but, given his massive contract, and the Raiders extreme lack of depth at the position, Ngakoue should see a nice bump in playing time percentage up from 62% year ago. The main fantasy flaw with him is he historically hasn't played well against the run so we shouldn't expect above average numbers in those categories despite the projected increase in snaps.
