Player Notes
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.

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.

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.

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.

From TheHuddle

Sep 5 7:53pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 5.

Fantasy Spin: Ross may be one of the starting receivers for the Bengals, but it is not known how much success he will have against the Seattle Seahawks. Fantasy players in most leagues should be able to find better options for their lineups.

From TheHuddle

Sep 4 7:23pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Spin: Ross has dealt with injuries in the past but could have an important role in the passing game with A.J. Green sidelined. He could be a flex option in some leagues but can be benched if fantasy players have better options.

From TheHuddle

Sep 4 3:13pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (hamstring) will play Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, according to head coach Zac Taylor Wednesday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Spin: Ross could have an early-season role behind Tyler Boyd with A.J. Green sidelined for the first few games of the regular season. Still, he caught just 21 passes on 58 targets for 210 yards last season and missed the opportunity for reps in a new offense. He'll be a name to watch in the first few weeks, but he doesn't need to be rostered at this point.

From TheHuddle

Sep 4 2:40pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross (hamstring) will play in Week 1 against the Seahawks, according to head coach Zac Taylor. Ross missed all of the preseason and continues to battle injuries. His impressive speed hasn't translated to the NFL. While he may have more opportunities in the passing game to begin the year with A.J. Green sidelined, Ross is well off the fantasy radar until he proves otherwise.

From RotoBaller

Aug 25 4:00pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross (hamstring) returned to practice on Sunday. Ross should be ready for Week 1 and could have an expanded role with A.J. Green out to begin the season, but fantasy owners still shouldn't place much trust in the 23-year-old speedster. Despite his physical talent and top-notch speed, Ross has only played in 16 games in his first two seasons and has 21 catches for only 210 yards and seven touchdowns. He'll only be a late-round flier in deeper leagues until he shows us that he can produce at the highest level.

Aug 25 3:43pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (hamstring) is participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Spin: Ross has deep-threat ability in the passing game but has dealt with injuries since entering the NFL. Fantasy players probably can avoid him during fantasy drafts, but he could be a waiver wire option during the season.

From TheHuddle

Aug 19 10:10pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said that wide receiver John Ross (hamstring) is set to start practicing as early as Sunday. Ross, 23, has blazing speed but has yet to put it all together in the NFL in his two seasons. Injuries continue to hamper him along the way. He had just 21 catches for 210 yards with seven touchdowns in 13 games last year. The upside remains evident, but most fantasy owners want to see more consistency before they take a chance on him. Consider him worth a late-round flier for receiver depth.

From RotoBaller

Aug 19 7:03pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (hamstring) could return to practice as early as Sunday, Aug. 25, according to head coach Zac Taylor. Taylor said he believes Ross may be able to play in Week 1 if he gets two weeks of practice.

From TheHuddle

Aug 12 8:13pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (hamstring) is considered day-to-day because of his hamstring injury, but head coach Zac Taylor said Ross could return next week.

Aug 8 7:43pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals RB Rodney Anderson (knee) and WR John Ross (hamstring) will not play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 10.

From TheHuddle

Aug 5 11:50pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross (hamstring) stated that he could have participated in training camp since opening day but stated that he was held out to avoid aggravating the ailment that has caused him some issues as of late. The third-year receiver indicated that he has decreased his training volume at the suggestion of former Bengals wideout T.J. Houshmandzadeh and though he still goes hard as it relates to his workouts, hes mindful of taking care of his body. The 23-year-old has appeared in 16 games over the last two seasons while battling various injuries, but if he can remain healthy, he could see a significant uptake in production with A.J. Green (ankle) out for a few weeks (at least).

Aug 3 10:13am ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (hamstring) is listed as day-to-day because of a hamstring issue, according to head coach Zac Taylor.

From TheHuddle

Aug 2 9:10pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross (hamstring) is still listed as day-to-day according to first-year head coach Zac Taylor. Though he has been practicing on the rehab field during the Bengals entire training camp thus far, the 23-year-old still proclaimed to reporters Im more ready than Ive ever been. Hopefully this is true as Ross has appeared in only 16 games during his first two seasons while battling numerous injuries while also bringing in just 21 receptions during that same span. With A.J. Green (ankle) out of the equation for at least the first few games of the regular season, Ross could gain some additional fantasy value if he is able to suit up come Week 1.
