2019 Fantasy Outlook
Leonard appeared undersized (6-2, 237) and under-athletic (4.7 40) when the Colts "reached" for him at the 36th pick in 2018, but he couldn't have proved his critics more wrong. He was outrageously productive as a rookie in all facets of play. He graded tops or close to it in all stat categories and did so on a fully sustainable 955 snaps, missing one game due to an ankle injury. Leonard will be hard-pressed to avoid statistical regression entirely, but the kind of production he posted last year simply leaves no room for doubt about his talent. Read Past Outlooks

Leonard (concussion) was cleared to play Tuesday, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
ANALYSIS
Leonard missed the last three games, but he announced he's good to go. Colts coach Frank Reich hasn't made an official announcement, but Leonard is in a good position to be ready for Week 7's game versus the Texans following their upcoming bye week. When he's back on the field, Leonard is expected to slot back into an every-snap role.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
While most considered him a reach on draft day, Leonard comes to the Colts via the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft and this pedigree suggests he'll instantly join the starting lineup in Indianapolis. In fact, the South Carolina State product could become IDP relevant as soon as Week 1 given his nature as an off-ball linebacker -- an alignment that's historically led to higher tackle totals than OLBs on the strong side -- but fantasy owners might be best served taking a wait-and-see approach while the Indianapolis defense settles into its 4-3 scheme after playing in a 3-4 under Chuck Pagano the fast few seasons.
