2020 Fantasy Outlook
Dennard was often deployed against inside wide receivers during his time with the Bengals, but per ESPN's Vaughn McClure, he was expected to compete for a perimeter cornerback spot when initially agreeing to terms with Jacksonville during March's free-agency period (a deal which later fell out). Now having landed in Atlanta among an otherwise inexperienced cornerback group, Dennard is expected to play an important role in containing the slot as Kendall Sheffield, A.J. Terrell and Isaiah Oliver man the perimeter. Read Past Outlooks

September 16, 2020
Dennard (undisclosed) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Dennard left the season opener against Seattle with an undisclosed injury, but he's evidently over whatever was bothering him. He should be out there in Week 2 against the Cowboys' high-powered receiving corps.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2016
2014
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.
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.
