2018 Fantasy Outlook
Desir was a pleasant surprise for the Colts last season and should assume an expanded role in 2018 following the departures of incumbent starters Vontae Davis (Bills) and Rashaan Melvin (Raiders). With the expectation that he'll recover fully from the torn pectoral that ended his 2017 campaign after nine games, Desir is a great bet to improve upon the 32 tackles and seven pass breakups he totaled last year.

Desir emerged as a standout in the secondary for the Colts last season, racking up 79 tackles (60 solo), one interception and two forced fumbles. The 28-year-old will fill a starting role for the club once again in 2019, with Kenny Moore the leading candidate to start at the other cornerback spot.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Desir played five games last year with the Chargers before being cut midseason. The Seahawks likely will keep five cornerbacks, and Desir likely won't be one. Neiko Thorpe and DeAndre Elliott figured to have a clearer path to the last cornerback job.
Desir finished the 2014 campaign strong but struggled when forced into playing time after Joe Haden went down in 2015. With Haden and Tramon Williams locked into the team's top spots on the outside, and K'Waun Williams the one to come in during nickel packages, Desir enters the 2016 season firmly as a depth option at cornerback.
Desir will look to lock down one of the final backup cornerback spots in 2015 after failing to make much of an impact in his rookie campaign a year ago.
Desir will compete for a reserve cornerback role with the Browns in 2014. He'll likely serve mostly as a special teams player out of the gates, but if Joe Haden, Justin Gilbert or Buster Skrine have to miss time at any point, the 6-foot-1 rookie would be one of the next options in line to see the field.
