There was a lot of uncertainty surrounding JPP heading into the 2016 regular season. He severely damaged his hand in a fireworks accident and had to adjust his pass-rushing approach. Although his play against the run remained quite strong, he only had 1.5 sacks through the season's first 11 games, which caused frustration among some fantasy owners. That quickly changed however, as Pierre-Paul logged 5.5 sacks over his next two games and erased all doubts from people's minds about his ability to perform at a high level. He wound up suffering an injury and missing the remainder of the season after that production explosion, but the Giants saw enough to reward him with four-year, $62 million contract this off-season. There's always some concern of production falloff after a player signs a big contract, but JPP's high floor/high ceiling profile makes him an easy top 7 selection at the defensive end position.

Jason Pierre-Paul signs long-term deal with Giants

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the New York Giants and pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul agreed to terms on a four-year, $62 million deal that could be worth "up to" $66 million with incentives and includes $40 million in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Impact

Pierre-Paul, who was franchise tagged last month, agreed to a four-year extension with the Giants Friday. Despite playing in only 12 games in 2016, the veteran pass rusher accumulated 54 tackles, seven sacks, three forced fumbles and a recovery. He will continue to anchor a Giants defensive line that was the strength of their team last season.
