2018 Fantasy Outlook
Dennard finally broke out in Year 4 with the Bengals after being a first-round pick in 2014, one of a string of first-round corners taken by the team. He had 85 tackles, tied for 13th among all defensive backs, along with two interceptions and six passes defensed. With Adam Jones now gone, the Bengals will need to rely upon Dennard more than ever. He should combine with William Jackson III and Dre Kirkpatrick to form a pretty formidable trio. Read Past Outlooks

The Bengals re-signed Dennard on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The two sides agreed to terms of a contract shortly after a report that the Bengals and Chiefs, among other teams, were inquiring about Dennard's services. With an increased snap count the last two seasons, he averaged 5.3 tackles per game while accumulating two interceptions (one pick-six), two sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 29 appearances. Expect Dennard to return to his role manning slot corner in Cincinnati.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2014
Dennard hasn’t lived up to expectations since entering the NFL as a first-round pick in 2014. He’s started just one game, recorded 24 tackles, and grabbed one interception in two years. Entering 2016, he’ll likely be competing for the nickel corner position with this year’s first-round pick, William Jackson.
Dennard was selected 24th overall in this year's draft and should see major playing time as a rookie considering the recent durability issues that have plagued cornerbacks Leon Hall, Terence Newman, and Dre Kirkpatrick. The former Michigan State standout earned the Jim Thorpe Award as college football's best defensive back last season and excels in press coverage situations.
