Injury Shoulder - Labrum
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 28th overall pick in the 2017 draft, Charlton started his career slowly but showed flashes of his pass-rushing ability as the season wore on, recording all three of his sacks after Week 8. DeMarcus Lawrence remains the lead dog on the Cowboys' defensive line, but if Charlton can take a step forward now that he has a year of NFL experience under his belt, he could produce some interesting IDP numbers.

Shoulder - Labrum
January 24, 2019
Charlton had surgery on his shoulder Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Charlton's injury was related to his labrum and sidelined him for three games in November. His stats took a downturn the second half of the season, which could have been a result of playing through injury. The 2017 first-round pick isn't expected to miss much offseason work while he recovers.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Drafted 28th overall by the Cowboys, Charlton has an enviable combination of length and athleticism that could eventually allow him to develop into the kind of dominant edge rusher the Cowboys have lacked since DeMarcus Ware left as a free agent. Charlton's production at Michigan was inconsistent, however, and he has a lot of work ahead of him in the weight room and on the practice field before he potentially reaches that ceiling. Expect the rookie to be another body in the DE rotation early on, with the potential to make a more substantial impact in the second half.
