2019 Fantasy Outlook
After a couple of injury-plagued seasons to begin his career, Clowney has become a disruptive force on the edge for the Texans. The durability issues that hounded him early have become less concerning as the 2014 first-round pick has played 45 of a possible 48 games the last three seasons. He has a modest 29 sacks over five seasons, but 18.5 of them have come in the last two years. Sacks, however, are just one component. Clowney gets additional pressure on quarterbacks (21 QB hits in 2018) and had three fumble recoveries last year. The one hitch entering training camp is his contract, with the pass rusher expected to hold out before he eventually signs his franchise tag. Clowney reportedly doesn't plan to miss regular-season games, but he'll at least be absent for a good portion of training camp, and he doesn't seem likely to stay in Houston beyond 2019.

Clowney will undergo core muscle surgery in about a week, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The 26-year-old played through the injury throughout the final stretch of the season, knowing that offseason surgery was a likely possibility. Clowney will have about a 5-to-6 week recovery after the procedure, so he should be fully healthy for the official start of free agency in March.

Clowney is one of those guys who you might rank higher if you could get his health guaranteed. Last year was the first time he played 16 games, and he unsurprisingly came through with a strong showing. While he generally looks like a player who will be regarded as a disappointment relative to expectations, players as talented as Clowney rarely go their entire careers without at least a couple dominant seasons. This year looks as fine of a time as any, especially if Deshaun Watson makes opponents throw to catch up.
Durability might always be a bit of an issue for Clowney, but he seems to be hitting his stride after a promising 2016 season that earned him a Pro Bowl trip and second-team All-Pro honors. Still just 24, his prospect profile projects plenty more improvement if his health cooperates. Last year's production would project to about 67 tackles and eight sacks over 950 snaps, and there's a good chance he improves on his per-snap efficiency, too. That kind of production at age 23 for a 6-5, 270-pound end with 4.53 speed shows his significant upside.
After a washout rookie season in 2014, Clowney was healthier during his sophomore NFL season. He showed signs of coming on last year -- his two-sack game against the Patriots stands out -- but injuries were still a factor, including a foot injury that sidelined him for Houston's playoff game against Kansas City. He reports the foot is 100 percent, but being hale in May is a far cry from being a 16-game player. If he can stay on the field, Clowney may emerge as an impact player.
Clowney's coming off a disappointing rookie season that began with a knee injury and ended with a knee injury that required microfracture surgery. He began training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, but has a targeted return before the beginning of the regular season. It's unclear if he'll be ready to be a full-time starter, but that's the goal.
It's crucial that IDP drafters double-check the positional designation their league gives to Clowney, as he might be listed as an LB rather than a DL, but if he secures DL eligibility he'll be a borderline DL1 consideration. The Texans didn't pick Clowney first overall to bring him along slowly, so he'll start opposite Whitney Mercilus at 3-4 OLB, moving to DE in nickel formations. Clowney is like the Calvin Johnson of defensive end prospects, and he'll have the opportunity to post big numbers immediately with offenses primarily concerned with J.J. Watt. Clowney has 4.5 speed at 6-5, 266 pounds and should contend for a Pro Bowl spot immediately. Bone spurs in his right foot are the only real concern to his productivity.
