2018 Fantasy Outlook
Gregory hasn't played a snap in an NFL game since the end of the 2016 season, as multiple drug suspensions put his career in serious jeopardy. Reinstated by the league this offseason, the 25-year-old still shows flashes of the pass-rushing talent that had him initially projected as a top-10 pick in the 2015 draft before his first failed drug test. If he can stay on the straight and narrow, Gregory could prove to be a useful complement to DeMarcus Lawrence on the Cowboys' defensive line, but given the long layoff it's tough to project him as anything more than a rotational player.

Suspension
April 2, 2019
Gregory (suspension) agreed to extend his contract through 2020, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The Cowboys are sticking by their 2015 second-round pick even as he prepares to serve the fourth suspension of his pro career. Gregory finally had a chance to show his talent in 2018 and responded with six sacks, 15 quarterback hits and two sacks on 457 defensive snaps (14 games). The decision to extend his contract suggests the Cowboys are optimistic Gregory will return from his indefinite suspension at some point during the 2019 campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
The issues with marijuana use that caused Gregory to fall into the second round of the 2014 draft continue to be a problem for him, and what was originally set to be a four-game suspension to begin this season could be lengthened further due to yet another failed drug test. The Cowboys' desperate need for a pass rush will likely grant him another couple of chances to prove he can make some sort of contribution, but first he'll need to clean up his act and commit to his career. A Von Miller-like redemption story is still possible for Gregory, but time is running out for him to get it underway.
Gregory slipped out of the first round of the 2015 draft after a positive drug test at the Scouting Combine, but still projects to be one of the better pass rushers in his class if he can avoid further trouble. His IDP upside could be limited as he competes for snaps behind DeMarcus Lawrence and Greg Hardy, but Gregory still has the disruptive speed and talent to pick up a handful of sacks as a rookie
