Fiddle Leaf Spots and Growth on Lower Trunk

last year

I've had this fiddle leaf fig for about a year now and I'm still trying to figure this thing out. The lower leaves are droopy and a few of them have brown spots along the edges. I let the top 2 inches of soil dry out between watering so I don't think it's root rot, but not sure. Also, it just started sprouting new leaves toward the bottom of the trunk a couple/few weeks ago. Should I let those grow out for now and trim later (since I want to maintain the tree look)? Should I nip off the other leaves with brown spots? I don't want to leave the plant with too few leaves.
