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

Still battling concussion

September 18, 2019
Leonard remains in the league's concussion protocol Wednesday, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.
The Colts aren't holding an official practice Wednesday, but Leonard wouldn't participate if they did. It appears Leonard may have started experiencing symptoms following Sunday's game versus the Titans since he played every snap in that game. The second-year pro will need to clear the league's protocol in order to play Sunday versus the Falcons.

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.
