Player Notes
Oct 2 1:53pm ET

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 2. WR Stanley Morgan was signed from the practice squad.

From TheHuddle

Oct 2 1:40pm ET

The Cincinnati Bengals placed wide receiver John Ross (collarbone) on Injured Reserve on Wednesday and signed wide receiver Stanley Morgan from their practice squad in a corresponding move. Ross injured himself in the Monday night loss to the Steelers and can be dropped in shallow leagues. It's a shame, as the speedy wideout was having his best season as a pro with A.J. Green (ankle) hurt. Until Green returns, Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate will be the team's top two receivers, with rookie Damion Willis and Alex Erickson behind them. Tate is a waiver wire pickup this week for WR-needy teams. Tight end Tyler Eifert should also be more involved and has a juicy matchup with the Cardinals in Week 5.

Oct 1 10:20pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross (shoulder) is expected to miss multiple games with the right shoulder injury he suffered in the Monday night loss to the Steelers, according to sources. Ross could be out for a month or so. Ross was serving as the No. 2 behind Tyler Boyd. With A.J. Green (ankle) still out at least another couple of weeks, it'll open up targets for Auden Tate and tight end Tyler Eifert. Rookie Damion Willis and Alex Erickson will fight for scraps after that. Tate should be a priority waiver addition for WR-needy fantasy teams or teams that owned Ross. When Ross returns, he might find himself third behind Boyd and Green. The speedster had boom/bust WR3 value the first couple weeks of the season.

Oct 1 7:13pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) is expected to miss multiple games in the range of a month or so due to injury, sources said Tuesday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Spin: While catching passes from QB Andy Dalton doesn't seem like a great role right now, WR Auden Tate is next up for targets behind Tyler Boyd with A.J. Green still sidelined for the foreseeable future. Tate should be added in all formats, while Damion Willis and Alex Erickson are options for deeper leagues. Don't be surprised if the Bengals add outside help, either. Anyone added to the thin receiving corps at this point would be worth at least some fantasy consideration.

From TheHuddle

Oct 1 12:43am ET

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) had his right arm in a sling after the Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Spin: If Ross is forced to miss playing time, look for Auden Tate to be the biggest beneficiary behind Tyler Boyd. Damion Willis might also see a larger role, too, although Boyd and Tate are the best fantasy options. The Bengals host the Cardinals in Week 5.

From TheHuddle

Sep 30 11:10pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross (shoulder) injured his right shoulder on Monday night against the Steelers and is questionable to return. Ross went down hard on his right shoulder during a catch in the fourth quarter and looked to be in a lot of pain. It's possible he could be dealing with a dislocated or separated shoulder. When he left, the Bengals were already down big, so it's unlikely he returns to this game. Before departing, Ross had only three catches for 36 yards while being covered at times by Steelers shutdown corner Joe Haden. A.J. Green (ankle) will be out at least another couple weeks, so Auden Tate would see a bigger role in the passing game if Ross misses time. Rookie Damion Willis could enter three-receiver sets. Tate is currently leading the Bengals in receiving on Monday with four catches (six targets) for 50 yards.

From RotoBaller

Sep 30 11:03pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) left the Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fourth quarter Monday, Sept. 30 and he is questionable to return.

Fantasy Spin: Ross made a grab in the red zone, but was tackled hard, landing on his shoulder. He had three receptions for 36 yards before his injury.

From TheHuddle

Sep 28 10:00pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross has been a WR1 through the first three weeks of the season and currently stands No. 4 in the NFL with 292 yards receiving. In Week 3, however, Ross was slowed by Tre'Davious White (two catches, 22 yards) and figures to see a lot of Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden, which will be another tough matchup. Although Ross doesn't have the most ideal matchup, head coach Zac Taylor is capable of calling plays to get him open and the Steelers have been allowing 44.56 fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Ross is a WR3 in 12-team leagues this week.

From RotoBaller

Sep 22 9:33pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross caught two of his six targets for 22 yards in a 21-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 3.

Fantasy Spin: After opening the year with a pair of monster efforts, he wasn't able to deliver any big plays against the Bills. Ross has started to shed his bust label, but this performance is a reminder that he should only be viewed as a boom-or-bust WR3.

From TheHuddle

Sep 20 9:30am ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross looks to finally be on track this season after a few years that were filled with injuries and conduct issues. Ross, who went undrafted in a good majority of leagues this season, currently leads all receivers with 270 yards on the year to go along with 11 receptions (20 targets) and three touchdowns. Despite the difficult matchup against the Bills Defense in Week 3, the 23-year-old has been playing too well to sit. Keep him rolling on Sunday.

From RotoBaller

Sep 16 1:23am ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross hauled in four of his eight targets for 112 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Spin: Ross was pretty much held in check until the final drive. It was then he got loose for a 66-yard touchdown, breaking a couple of tackles near the catch point before showing off his world-class speed on his way to the end zone. Ross could have it tough against the Buffalo Bills' tough defense in Week 3 and is unlikely to average the 10 targets he is through two weeks once A.J. Green returns, but he's done more than enough to solidify his place in this offense moving forward. Consider him an upside WR3 for now.

From TheHuddle

Sep 15 4:30pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross saw less targets (eight) than Tyler Boyd (10) in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, but he still came through for fantasy purposes. Ross caught four of his eight targets for 112 yards and one touchdown. Ross' 66-yard touchdown came in garbage time as the No. 2 option in the Bengals passing attack. The third-year receiver may see a lot of Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White in Week 3, so you may want to explore other options if you were rolling with Ross.

From RotoBaller

Sep 15 4:30pm ET

Bengals' WR John Ross had 4 receptions for 112 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's loss against the 49ers. It was Ross's 2nd consecutive 100+ yard receiving game. He has averaged 6 catches with 135 receiving yards in those games.

Sep 14 6:00pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross had a huge Week 1 performance against the Seattle Seahawks, catching seven passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns. Expectations for Ross have increased, but he has a much tougher matchup in Week 2 against San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman. Although Sherman is getting older (31), he's still a solid cornerback and quarterbackAndy Dalton could simply look to avoid the matchup. It's possible that Ross could run by Sherman for a deep ball, but absent that it's quite possible the Bengals speedster comes back down to Earth in this one. Ross will be difficult to trust as a WR3 in 12-team leagues in Week 2 and should be considered a boom-or-bust commodity.

From RotoBaller

Sep 10 4:05pm ET

Cincinnati's WR John Ross scored an astounding 34.80 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 1 loss in Seattle. Ross caught seven passes for 158 yards with two touchdowns.

Sep 8 11:13pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross caught seven of his 12 targets for 158 yards and two touchdowns in a 21-20 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1.

Fantasy Spin: Just when it seemed safe to write off Ross as a bust, the speedy receiver turns in the best outing of his career. It could be an outlier, but Ross is worth a speculative add if he is available in your league.

From TheHuddle

Sep 8 9:30pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross busted out in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks. With wide receiver AJ Green(ankle) out of the lineup, Ross led the Bengals with 12 targets, hauling in seven of them for 158 yards and two touchdowns. The teams running game didn't have any success as running back Joe Mixon missed a large portion of Week 1 with an ankle injury. As a result, quarterback Andy Dalton was forced to put the ball in the air 51 times. If Mixon is forced to miss Week 2, Ross could be in line for another large target share against the San Francisco 49ers.

From RotoBaller

Sep 8 7:30pm ET

Cincinnati's WR John Ross had 7 receptions for 158 yards with two touchdowns for an astounding 22.6 yards per catch in Sunday's loss in Seattle.

Sep 6 6:03pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

Fantasy Spin: Ross could have a bigger role in the passing game with A.J. Green still sidelined but probably should be keep on the bench in most fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Sep 6 4:53pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals OT Cordy Glenn (concussion), WR A.J. Green (ankle) and RB Trayveon Williams (foot) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks. WR Auden Tate (knee) was downgraded to a limited practice Friday, Sept. 6, and is listed as doubtful. DE Andrew Brown (quad), S Clayton Fejedelem (ankle), CB Dre Kirkpatrick (Achilles) and WR John Ross (hamstring) practiced in full for a third straight day and were removed from the injury report.
