2020 Fantasy Outlook
Clark probably has the ability to do significantly more than he did in 2019, his first year with the Chiefs. Playing 736 snaps in 14 games, he totaled 37 tackles and eight sacks. He made five additional sacks in his three playoff games, though, and if you include those stats with the regular season numbers you get 46 tackles and 13 sacks on 902 snaps. Clark has yet to play more than 742 defensive snaps in a season, but he'd project among the league leaders in sacks if he could just get over the 800-snap mark. Read Past Outlooks

Clark tallied 37 tackles (27 solo), eight sacks and one interception over 14 regular-season games in 2019.
ANALYSIS
While Clark's raw numbers slightly declined from what he posted during his final season in Seattle in 2018, a pair of missed games in the middle of the season can account for some of that. Clark did see a notable drop-off in his ability to get the quarterback on the ground, falling five sacks short of the career-best 13 he tallied in 2018. However, he was a force down the stretch and in the playoffs, registering seven sacks from Week 16 through the postseason. Clark should resume his pass-rushing duties in 2020.

Clark retains his DL eligibility with the Chiefs switching to a 4-3, cementing him as one of this year's top high-upside IDPs. The Chiefs figure to protect plenty of leads, and opponents have no choice but to throw to keep up with Patrick Mahomes. With more dropbacks come more sack opportunities for Clark, who also could see his snap count jump to more than 800 after logging fewer than 750 the last two years in Seattle. Clark's tackle production is modest (73 the last two years), so he might go cold between the sack sprees, but the high points should be notable.
With Michael Bennett traded to Philly and Cliff Avril retired due to neck issues, Clark is easily the most elite pass rusher left in Seattle. Heading into his fourth pro season, Clark has racked up 19 sacks and four forced fumbles in the last two campaigns. Clark should continue to play around 50 defensive snaps per game and be in the running for another double-digit sack season.
Clark was able to carve out a role for himself on a very talented defensive line, recording 47 tackles, 10 sacks and two forced fumbles in 15 games last season. Now heading into his third season, no team will be caught off guard by Clark's menacing playing style, which could mean a slight decline in numbers. However, the 24-year-old is expected to remain as a substitute behind starters Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril, giving opponent's offensive lines no breaks when it comes to the pass rush.
Clark had a promising rookie season in 2015, totaling three sacks on 333 snaps. Perhaps most important he showed none of the character flaws that caused his draft stock to sink to the second round. He'll be a big part of the D-Line rotation again this year. He's expected to see increased snaps and with it increased tackles and sacks. He's a long way from IDP relevance, but he's an important part of Seattle's defensive front.
A controversial 2015 second-round pick because of off-field trouble at Michigan, Clark is an athletic defensive lineman who can play outside and inside. At 6-3, 271, Clark has a big swingspan and runs a 4.6 40. He won't start, but he'll be a big part of the defensive line rotation if he develops as hoped.
