Chase Young is in a deep hole right now, and we've only played one game of the NFL season!

Young had zero sacks against the Chargers, putting him far behind the current sack leader, Chandler Jones, who finished with five in the Cardinals’ season opener. While Young certainly has an uphill climb to get to the top of the list, it isn’t impossible -- especially with the Giants next on the schedule.

It’s no secret that the Giants looked terrible against the Broncos in Week 1. On a short week, the Giants are going to have trouble against Washington’s front seven. This is Young’s opportunity to get back into the sack race and a great opportunity for bettors to take advantage of his value odds.

WynnBET has Young at +1750 odds to win the sack title. Jones leads the pack with +600 odds but could be challenged by Young with a great game. Obviously, it would be insane to predict a 5-sack performance, but Young could make a statement with the Giants’ line as bad as it is. 

Young had one sack and two quarterback hits in Washington’s last game against the Giants. If New York is forced to throw the ball due to Saquon Barkley not being effective or just being down, Young could have a major impact.

New York gave up 2.0 sacks to the Broncos last week, which is the same amount of sacks Washington recorded. Asking Young to make up the difference in one week is a lot, but this will be the best opportunity to do so.
