2019 Fantasy Outlook
A holdout in 2016 and a foot injury last year stunted his schedule a bit, but Bosa looks locked in for an All-Pro season in 2019. He's only 24, yet he already has 27 sacks on 1,730 snaps. That would project to about 13.5 sacks on 850 snaps, and his torrid pace at less than 100 percent health last year (5.5 sacks on 316 snaps) indicates Bosa has untapped developmental upside. So long as there are no concerning reports about Bosa's foot this offseason, it's difficult to see what could slow him down. Read Past Outlooks

Caps off another Pro Bowl season

January 4, 2020
Bosa posted 67 tackles, 11.5 sacks and a forced fumble throughout the 2019 season.
ANALYSIS
Bosa earned his second trip to the Pro Bowl by finishing tied for second in the AFC in sacks while also racking up the fifth-most tackles of any defensive end in the NFL. The Chargers are expected to make the fourth-year pro one of the highest paid defensive ends ever sometime this offseason, although the 24-year-old still is under contract thanks to the fifth-year option, which will pay him $14.4 million in 2020.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Bosa has been incredible in his first two NFL seasons, posting 23 sacks in 28 games, including a 16-sack pace when prorated to a 1,000-snap projection. He finished last year with 12.5 sacks on 852 snaps, apparently while playing through a since-repaired dislocated finger. Bosa doesn't even turn 23 until July. You never want to impose unfair expectations, but Bosa is on an obvious Hall of Fame pace right now, and in the meantime there's no reason to suspect he'll do anything but improve.
If there's a young talent capable of pushing Watt and Mack on the defensive line, it's probably Bosa. The third overall selection from last year's draft, Bosa's billing as a 4-3 end was no impediment to immediate success in San Diego's 3-4 scheme, even after a bizarre contract dispute that held him out for the first four games. That Bosa hit double-digit sacks as a rookie on just 562 snaps shows how special he is, and his circumstances should be even better with the Chargers switching to a 4-3 alignment this season.
The surprise third pick of the 2016 draft, Bosa should prove an immediate IDP factor on the defensive line. Regardless of whether most of his snaps are at 3-4 end or on the edge in nickel formations, Bosa is an unusual talent who has the violence to succeed in traffic and the athleticism to evade blockers. The Chargers didn't draft him third overall to let him come along slowly, so expect Bosa to make an impact early in his career. He totaled 37 tackles for loss and 18.5 sacks the last two years at Ohio State.
