2019 Fantasy Outlook
The No. 4 overall pick in the 2018 draft molded an impressive rookie campaign, and the sky is the limit for the young defensive back. Ward proved to be a ballhawk in college and during his first year with the Browns. He intercepted three passes, forced a fumble and added another 11 pass defenses. While his tackling did improve from early in his rookie season, boosting that area of his game will be key if he wants to take the next step. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
After spending the last four games on the sidelines, Ward enjoyed a bye week and will be ready for a matchup against the Patriots on Sunday. Ward will be in charge of shutting down opponents' top receivers going forward. The Patriots just placed Josh Gordon on injured reserve, so Julian Edelman (chest), Mohamed Sanu and Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) will their top three wideouts in this matchup.

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.
