28-Year-Old Defensive TackleDT
Philadelphia Eagles
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Cox is coming off his biggest season in terms of getting in the backfield, as he notched career highs with 10.5 sacks, 34 quarterback hits, and 12 tackles for loss while playing in all 18 games (including playoffs) for the Eagles. However, he suffered a foot injury in the divisional-round loss to the Saints and hopes to be ready for training camp. Once healthy, the 28-year-old will be paired on the inside with newcomer Malik Jackson to form one of the league's top interior attacks. Read Past Outlooks

2012
The stalwart of the Eagles' defensive line missed a couple games last season with a calf injury and registered the lowest tackle total of his career with 26. If the Mississippi State product can stay healthy this season, he should see a bit of a bounce back in production.
Graham might be the better IDP option, but Cox is arguably the more important player for the Eagles' defense. He's one of the league's most disruptive linemen even at 6-4, 310, possessing a sub-4.8 40 and a freakish 7.07-second three-cone time. He was limited to 773 snaps last year while playing through an ankle injury, which no doubt affected his play to some extent, so his box score from last year can only factor so much into this year's projection. When healthy in 2015, Cox produced 71 tackles and 9.5 sacks in 982 snaps.
Cox is one of the most athletic interior linemen in the league, and he's an interesting breakout consideration as Philadelphia switches to a 4-3 scheme. Cox was quite productive as a 3-4 end, especially in 2015, but there's little doubt his rare athleticism would translate to better disruptiveness in a four-man front. With a talented end rotation, Cox should be able to overcome double-teams and continue finding ball-carriers in 2016. Chip Kelly's departure might pose a hit to Cox's play count after he logged 982 snaps in 2015, but an increase in efficiency should offset that.
Cox's upside is limited by double-teams he faces as easily the best player in the Philadelphia front seven, but he still provided mid-tier IDP production last season. Cox hit his stride in the season's second half, totaling 37 tackles and all four of his sacks in the final eight weeks. It wouldn't surprise to see him improve his sack total — he had 5.5 as a part-time player as a rookie in 2012. At 6-4, 300, with a 4.79 40, Cox is one of the league's most athletic defensive linemen. And he'll have plenty of opportunity this season, as he should match last year's 921 snaps.
Cox had a disappointing 2013 season in statistical terms, struggling in the second half of the year after getting off to an encouraging start. He's one of the league's best athletic specimens and will definitely start at end for Philadelphia. Hopefully he'll be able to take full advantage of his athletic gifts in his third year.
Although Cox fell to the 12th pick of last year's draft, he probably belonged in the top eight. He finished his rookie year with 39 tackles and 5.5 sacks on just 511 snaps, and that count could rise significantly in 2013. His rookie rate of production projects to about 57 tackles and eight sacks on 750 snaps, which could be ballpark for him. The former Mississippi State star also had 56 tackles and five sacks in 12 games during his final year of college.
Cox is a superb athlete for a 6-foot-4, 298-pounder, and he should in the near future turn into one of the NFL's best interior linemen. For the short term, however, his snaps figure to be limited, because the Eagles are extremely deep on the defensive line.
