According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross III is expected to return to the team soon after leaving training camp last week to tend to a family member who contracted COVID-19. Ross will need to pass the NFL's tests to return from the COVID-19 list but he is expected to return to the team as soon as Saturday. Ross is expected to serve as the team's field-stretcher and deep threat in what should be a much-improved passing attack in 2020.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross III has left camp to be with his son after both his son and his son's mother tested positive for COVID-19. Ross missed Tuesday's practice and has no timetable for a return. The speedy wideout is clearly prioritizing his family over football, rightfully so, at this point of the preseason. Ross will be placed on the Reserve/COVID list while he is away from the team.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross averaged 7.3 yards after the catch in 2019 - tied for the fourth-highest average in the league among players who amassed 50 targets last season.

May 18 5:20pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross III could be in store for one of the most impactful seasons of his career. After starting the 2019 campaign as one of the league's best wideouts by compiling 13 catches (26 targets) for 292 yards and three scores throughout the first three weeks, including six receptions for 20-plus yards, the 24-year-old suffered an injured shoulder. After appearing in only eight contests, as a result, the former 2017 first-round pick is hoping to develop a stable rapport with rookie quarterback Joe Burrow in addition to remaining healthy. With Joe Mixon, A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, and the newly drafted Tee Higgins, Ross could have some extra breathing room to make some big plays throughout the year, causing him to potentially exceed his current ADP of 183rd overall in PPR formats.

The Cincinnati Bengals have informed wide receiver John Ross III that they are declining his fifth-year option, according to a source. Ross will become an unrestricted free agent after the 2020 season. The Bengals took the 25-year-old with the ninth overall pick in the 2017 draft mainly because of his blazing speed. Ross is still fast, but he's had trouble staying on the field because of injuries, playing in 24 games with 19 starts in his first three seasons. He certainly has breakaway speed and field-stretching ability, but he's been wildly inconsistent, catching 49 passes for 716 yards and 10 touchdowns since '17. He could face competition from rookie Tee Higgins in 2020, too, behind A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd. It makes Ross a dart throw with upside late in drafts with non-PPR scoring.

May 2 5:53pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross will not have his fifth-year option exercised this offseason, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: Ross is scheduled to be a free agent next offseason since his option will not be picked up. He probably will compete with Tee Higgins for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp. He could be a late round option in deeper leagues but likely will not have a lot of fantasy value.

From TheHuddle

May 1 6:00am ET

The Cincinnati Bengals have yet to exercise the fifth-year option on wide receiver John Ross III. The oft-injured wideout has been unable to remain healthy throughout his three years in the league but still managed to accrue 506 yards and three touchdowns off of 28 catches last season despite appearing in only eight contests. He is slated to earn $15.9 million; however, since the cash isn't guaranteed, the team could get out of the deal before the start of the 2021 league year.
