John Ross News
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross, who will wear No. 11 this upcoming season, will look to finally live up to expectations during the 2019 campaign. After starting his career playing just three games in 2017, he semi-bounced back in 2018 by accumulating seven touchdowns despite catching only 21 of his 58 targets. He will have an uphill battle as he will face stiff competition for looks from wide receivers A.J. Green and Tyler Boydin addition to running back Joe Mixon projected to be heavily involved under new leadership. However, if Green is unable to remain healthy, Ross fantasy stock could rise in what could be his final shot with the club to prove his worth.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross, the team's first-round pick in 2016, has shown fluidity as a receiver in head coach Zac Taylor's system so far in organized team activities. The 24-year-old third-year wideout figures to move all around the field as a threat, a decoy and dynamic weapon for the offense. "With John he's still thinking," wide receiver Tyler Boyd said. "He's thinking and then he reacts. I feel like once he gets comfortable and makes plays he'll be fine. He's just got to cut it loose." Cincy's coaching staff isn't babying Ross either, so he'll have plenty of chances to make an impact this year. Ross is still only 23, too, so he could easily break out in Taylor's offense this year, but fantasy owners won't need to invest anything more than a late-round flier in deeper leagues.
After a pair of disappointing seasons to open his career, the Cincinnati Bengals are currently shopping wide receiver John Ross. Ross caught 21 balls for 210 yards and seven touchdowns last season, but he hauled in just 36.2 percent of his total targets. While the touchdown numbers were impressive and suggest plenty of upside, Ross having just 21 receptions over his first two seasons isn't what the Bengals expected when they drafted him. Ross should find himself in a better situation once he's dealt, but dynasty owners shouldn't hold their breath if they're expecting Ross to instantly become the speedy, top-tier threat that his college career suggested he'd become.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (wrist) and wide receiver John Ross (knee) were both limited in practice on Wednesday. Both players should be able to play in Week 16 against the Bengals. With A.J. Green already on Injured Reserve and Tyler Boyd expected to miss the last two games, Mixon will have an even bigger role the rest of the way. He'll be a no-doubt RB1 against Cleveland this weekend if he plays, while Ross will essentially be the team's No. 1 receiver. However, Ross is more of a touchdown-dependent WR4/flex for the desperate.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross has now hauled in at least one touchdown in three straight weeks. Although, Ross could've had a much bigger day, but failed to capitalize. Ross caught three of his seven targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the 35-20 loss to the Browns. A.J. Green (toe) was sidelined again, so that's really the only reason Ross is seeing this much action. He's a touchdown-dependent WR4 and shouldn't be trusted in most fantasy leagues.
