The 24-year-old has had a brilliant start to life in the English top-flight since he joined Watford from Club Brugge in the summer.
Dennis has scored six league goals in 13 appearances this season, with two of the goals coming in the month of November.
The Nigerian has already opened his account in December with a goal against Chelsea on Wednesday. In addition to his goals, the Super Eagles star also has five assists.
Only Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has more goal contributions than the Nigerian in the Premier League this season.
Should he win the award, Dennis will become the fifth Nigerian to win the prize.
