2018 Fantasy Outlook
The fourth overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft, Ward immediately improves Cleveland's defense and projects to step right into one of the team's starting cornerback slots alongside E.J. Gaines. At 5-11, 190, Ward has the talent to handle receivers on the outside well due to his footwork and ability to match change of speeds. During his final year at Ohio State, he deflected 15 passes while adding two interceptions. Read Past Outlooks

January 25, 2019
Ward (concussion) has been cleared and will play in Sunday's Pro Bowl, Pat McManamon of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Per Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Ward's playing time may be limited as a result of the cornerback's two late-season concussions, but Ward himself said he is fine, and there's been no indication the cornerback isn't in good health. The 2018 first-rounder is entering his first full offseason in the NFL after an impressive rookie campaign in which he tallied 53 tackles, 11 pass breakups and three picks in 13 games.
