    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross was limited to one reception for eight yards against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Sept. 13. He lost three yards on his lone rushing attempt.

    Huddle Up: Ross, a former first-round pick, has speed to burn but remains a limited participant in an offense full of weapons. Cincy faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 3, and Ross is no better than a blind flier until he earns a larger role.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 1:38pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross managed just one catch for three yards in Week 1 against the Indianapolis, but at least it was good for a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Ross was targeted just two times, so that's a bit of a disappointment for fantasy owners and DFS players who rolled the dice on the second-year receiver. He'll look for better results in Week 2 against the Ravens on Thursday, but he should only be treated as a WR5 in most formats.

  • Posted: 8/26/2018 2:58pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross tallied two receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown in the team's third preseason game versus the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Ross showed off his trademark speed on the Bengals' first play of the day, burning the Buffalo secondary for a 57-yard score - a play during which he outmaneuvered two defenders after catching the pass around the 5-yard line. Feeding A.J. Green is obviously going to remain the priority in Cincinnati, but Ross could offer week-winning upside in the games he is able to make plays like the one he did in this contest. Last year's No. 9 overall pick makes for a high-upside pick in the later rounds.

  • Posted: 8/18/2018 6:57pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross caught one pass on three targets for 29 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Ross is going to be given every opportunity to hold down the No. 2 receiver job, and he has the speed to be a dangerous deep threat. He will be a big play-dependent fantasy option, but Ross is a high-upside option to grab at the end of drafts.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 6:29pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross caught one pass on five targets for 20 yards against the Chicago Bears in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't the best start for Ross, who couldn't keep his feet inbounds on a potential touchdown and had a slip on a route that led to an interception. Still, he's likely to open the year as the No. 2 receiver for the Bengals, making him a high-upside flier in the later rounds.

  • Posted: 8/4/2018 6:32pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross opened as the No. 2 receiver in a scrimmage game Saturday, Aug. 4.

    Huddle Up: It's no surprise that Ross is going to be given every chance to start after Cincinnati spent a top-10 pick on him last year. His rookie year was lost to injury, but his elite speed and big-play potential are undeniable. Ross is the type of his high-upside player to target in the later rounds.

  • Posted: 5/27/2018 7:33pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross has been 'fed the ball on a variety of routes' during OTAs, according to Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

    Huddle Up: Ross' rookie season was ruined by injuries, but the former top-10 pick has the speed to produce big plays. Cincinnati is going to do everything it can to help bring Ross along, and he'll be worth a flier in the final rounds of drafts.

  • Posted: 5/15/2018 5:10pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross told the team's official website he 'couldn't ask to feel any better' than he does at the moment and suggested this is the best he's felt since his final year of college.

    Huddle Up: Ross quickly became a forgotten man in the Bengals' offense as a pre-draft shoulder surgery kept him sidelined until training camp last season. He landed in the doghouse shortly thereafter following a fumble on his lone touch of 2017 ended up in a fumble. Last year's No. 9 overall pick could easily be a post-hype breakout player, as Brandon LaFell is really his only main competition for a starting job. Ross is well worth a late-round flyer this spring and summer.

  • Posted: 3/30/2018 7:04pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross is 'all fixed up' after dealing with injuries to his shoulder and lower legs last year, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

    Huddle Up: Ross has a lot to prove after injuries ruined his rookie season. Continue to hold on to him in dynasty formats, but he is no more than a late-round lottery ticket in redraft leagues.

  • Posted: 3/2/2018 8:40pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross 'was not a miss,' head coach Marvin Lewis said Friday, March 2.

    Huddle Up: Lewis pointed out that Ross was injured a majority of the season, and while Ross was certainly a disappointment, it is a little too soon to label him a bust. That being said, he is no more than a late-round flier heading into 2018.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 11:02pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) admitted to concealing a shoulder injury Wednesday, Dec. 6, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. The injury is unrelated to the issue with his right shoulder that required surgery before the draft.

    Huddle Up: Ross' rookie season is officially over, and it was an unmitigated disaster. He'll try to right the ship in 2018.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 6:14pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross was targeted once in Week 8 against the Indianapolis Colts and he had no catches.

    Huddle Up: There were rumblings that Ross might have a sizable role in the offense against the Colts but that never came into fruition. Perhaps the inclement weather played a role, but avoid him in all fantasy leagues until he starts to do something meaningful on the stat sheet.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 2:03pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) was able to take part in a full practice session on Wednesday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: Ross was able to take part in his first full practice since Week 2. Even if he is able to play in Sunday's game against the Colts he isn't expected to have much in the way of fantasy appeal.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 5:32am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) is likely to miss Week 7's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, he appears poised to play in Week 8 versus the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Ross was listed as questionable on the injury report after putting in two limited practice sessions and one full practice session during the week. He has only suited up for one game this year and possesses very little value outside of long-term dynasty leagues.

  • Posted: 10/7/2017 5:04pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) will once again be out of the lineup for Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Ross has a bye in Week 6, so hopefully this gives him time to get that knee in shape. The offense in Cincinnati has been horrid, so you may want to avoid Ross for the time being.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 11:28pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) 'tweaked' his knee during the team's practice Thursday, Sept. 21, and he'll likely require an MRI.

    Huddle Up: Ross, who missed Week 1 with a knee injury and sat out Wednesday's practice due to illness, apparently walked off under his own power without a noticeable limp. Ross had 'lottery ticket' potential given Green Bay's secondary troubles in Atlanta, but this certainly throws his Week 3 status into serious doubt.
