Random FPS Hitches Since Recent Update

So ever since about three weeks ago, when I play Overwatch I get random FPS drops and hitches. Also, Overwatch has started to use a crap ton of RAM. When playing the game, my memory percentage in my task manager is usually at 40% or 50%. My FPS count in the top left also constantly has dots next to the numbers, which used to never be there. Whenever I tab out, or go into my settings, or am respawning, my FPS will drop drastically, which also used to never happen but started up recently. Lastly, my FPS isn’t that bad when I first open up Overwatch, but the longer I play the worse the drops get, and they become more frequent. None of these things happen with any of my other games like Rainbow Six, or Final Fantasy XV.

Graphics card: GTX 1060

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you for reading!
