    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross caught two of his four targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in a 26-21 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14, and Ross has caught a touchdown in four of the last five games.

    Huddle Up: Despite the four scores in five games, Ross has topped 40 receiving yards just once all year. He's a risky, touchdown-dependent flex play.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 4:24pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross posted three grabs for 31 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns, extending his touchdown streak to three games.

    Huddle Up: Ross has managed to find the end zone in three straight games, and four of the past five. He still doesn't see enough touches to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the deepest leagues. The Bengals host the Broncos in Week 13.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 3:02pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross caught two passes for 27 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Ross has caught a touchdown in back-to-back games but only has four catches and 56 yards during those games. He has some value because of his touchdown potential but would only be a flex option in deep fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 6:40am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is expected to play in Week 11's game against the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Ross was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. He saw a more prominent role in the Cincinnati offense last week due to A.J. Green's absence but should not be considered as anything more than a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues due to a somewhat unfavorable matchup.

  • Posted: 11/16/2018 10:17am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) on Friday, Nov. 16, was listed as questionable for Week 16 with a groin injury.

    Huddle Up: Ross played last week for the first time since Week 7, catching two of his six targets for 39 yards and a touchdown, but given his health history and low target volume when he is out there, Ross is a long-shot flex play at best Sunday.

  • Posted: 11/15/2018 11:11am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) remained limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: The Bengals are thin at wide receiver with A.J. Green out, which is why Ross saw six targets last week. He has a tough matchup against the Baltimore Ravens this week, so don't start him as more than a deep flex.

  • Posted: 11/14/2018 12:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Nov. 14.

    Huddle Up: Ross is playing a larger role with A.J. Green sidelined, but he only caught two passes last week, although he did score. What's promising is that Ross was targeted six times. Keep him in the flex conversation even in a tough matchup versus the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 1:57pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross posted two catches for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 loss against the New Orleans Saints with a team-high six targets.

    Huddle Up: Ross led the team in targets, as he was forced to step up with A.J. Green inactive due to injury. He did a decent job operating as the No. 2 receiver, but he is still only worth a look as a low-end WR4 or flex option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Posted: 11/5/2018 9:49am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) returned to practice Monday, Nov. 5.

    Huddle Up: Ross' health and ability to stay on the field could take on a more important role if A.J. Green (toe) is forced to miss multiple games, although the former's durability will make him difficult to trust. Nevertheless, he could end up being worth a stash until more is known about Green's condition.

  • Posted: 10/26/2018 10:02am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) on Friday, Oct. 26, was ruled out for the team's Week 8 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: With seven catches for 79 yards and two TDs, Ross' sophomore season has gone better than his catch-less rookie year, but it's still 7-79-2 in five games with a slew of ever-present injuries mixed in. He's not worth the fantasy trouble outside of dynasty leagues.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 9:29pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) departed early in Week 7 versus the Kansas City Chiefs due to a groin injury and did not return.

    Huddle Up: Ross was making his return from a groin injury that had sidelined him the previous two weeks. It's quickly shaping up to be another lost season for the last year's No. 9 overall pick, who just cannot seem to stay healthy. Ross should be on waivers in most non-dynasty formats.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 9:59am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR (groin) John Ross on Friday, Oct. 5, was ruled out of the team's Week 5 game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Ross has had flashes with seven receptions for 79 yards and two TDs so far in his second season, but health issues continue to be a weekly factor. In the meantime, that only means extra targets for fellow WRs A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd, who have combined for 69 so far.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 2:37pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross posted two receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Ross had a 39-yard touchdown grab midway through the second quarter, easily the longest catch of his career. His previous long went for just nine yards. The second-year receiver out of Washington has a ways to go before he finds his way into the regular fantasy lineup, but he has two scores in four games to start moving the needle slightly. The Bengals host the Dolphins in Week 5.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 2:22pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross posted three grabs for 16 yards on seven targets in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Ross has managed just five receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets through three games. He has speed to burn, but for whatever reason he is just not factoring in. Tyler Boyd had a giant game in Week 3 once A.J. Green exited with a groin injury. Perhaps if Green is sidelined then Ross will see more action, but Green said he expects to play in Week 4.

  • Posted: 9/13/2018 9:17pm ET

    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.
