2023 Fantasy Outlook
Lawrence enjoyed his most productive NFL campaign in 2022, finishing with career-high marks of 68 tackles, 7.5 sacks, three pass defenses and two forced fumbles. The standout play helped him earn his first All-Pro and Pro-Bowl selections, and the Giants rewarded him with a four-year, $90 million contract during the offseason. Lawrence has been a beacon of good health, having played 16 games in each of his four NFL seasons to date, and he appears set to lead New York's defensive front for many years to come.

Lawrence has agreed to a four-year, $90 million contract extension with the Giants that includes $60 million guaranteed, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Per Schefter, the deal makes Lawrence the third highest-paid defensive tackle in the NFL. The 2019 first-rounder is coming off a 2022 campaign in which he notched 68 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 16 games, and now that the 25-year-old's contract situation has been settled, Lawrence is set to continue in his key role as a starter along the Giants' defensive line.

Lawrence has been a steady part of the Giants' defensive front since he was selected in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. As such, it's of little surprise that New York chose to pick up the fifth-year option on his rookie contract during the offseason. Lawrence racked up 54 tackles and 2.5 sacks last season, and he's an IDP option in leagues that require managers to roster a defensive tackle.
The 17th overall pick in the 2019 Draft, Lawrence is firmly established as a run stuffer (53 tackles last season) in the Giants' 3-4 alignment, but he contributed with four sacks and two batted passes. At 6-4, 342, he's a monstrous presence and an important piece of this defense.
The 17th overall pick in the 2019 draft, Lawrence was stout against the run last year and managed 2.5 sacks as a rookie. The Giants 3-4 alignment doesn't allow for a ton of stats from its ends - the edge-rushing linebackers generate most of the sacks - but Lawrence looks like a solid if unspectacular contributor after Year 1.
Taken with the 17th pick in the draft, the 6-5, 342-pound Lawrence is a monster interior lineman with excellent quickness for his size. There's some concern that his college production fell off after his freshman year, and he's unlikely to be especially valuable for IDP purposes as he'll be doing the dirty work inside while others rush the passer. He'll rotate at nose tackle with Dalvin Tomlinson on passing downs but could win the starting left defensive end job in the team's 3-4 scheme out of the gate.
