The Bengals are "shopping" WR John Ross, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 9th overall pick of the 2017 draft has been a colossal disappointment through 2 seasons, going catch-less in 3 appearances as a rookie and catching just 21 balls this past year. Injuries have been a problem for Ross throughout his football career. But he posted big numbers in college, boasts 4.2 speed and is still only 23. Ross remains a hold in dynasty leagues. We'll see if he finds a new home.
Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (knee) is out for Sunday’s finale against the Steelers. John Ross, Cody Core and Alex Erickson will again serve as Cincinnati’s top 3 WRs. None can be trusted in fantasy lineups.
Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. He hasn’t yet been placed on IR, so there’s evidently a chance he plays in the finale. Boyd’s absence this weekend leaves John Ross, Cody Core and Alex Erickson as Cincinnati’s top 3 WRs. Ross is the best fantasy bet but is no better than a WR4 flier.
Bengals WR Tyler Boyd has been diagnosed with a "low-grade" MCL sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He could miss time, and with only two weeks left in the season, that could be it for 2018," Rapoport adds. Boyd's absence would leave John Ross and Cody Core as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs.
Bengals WR A.J. Green is set to undergo season-ending surgery to repair torn ligaments in his toe, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Green is expected to be sidelined for 3-4 months, so he should be back by springtime. He'll end up missing 7 games this season, bringing him to 13 total over the past 3 seasons. Durability is a concern moving forward for the 30-year-old. Tyler Boyd and John Ross will close out the 2018 campaign as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs.
As expected, Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is out for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He was working off to the side of Friday's practice, so a Week 12 return looks possible. Tyler Boyd and John Ross will again serve as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs vs. a stingy Baltimore defense. Consider Boyd a low-end WR2 and Ross just a fantasy flier.
Update: The Bengals listed Green as doubtful. He won't play, but it's another sign that he could return next week.
Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) remained sidelined on Thursday. The team has yet to rule him out, but he's a long shot to play against the Ravens this weekend. That'll again leave Tyler Boyd and John Ross as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs.
Bengals WR John Ross (groin) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He figures to serve as the #2 WR against the Saints this weekend with A.J. Green out — a massive opportunity for last year’s 1st-round pick. Still, Ross can’t be considered more than a flier in Week 10 fantasy lineups.
Bengals WR A.J. Green will avoid surgery on his injured toe, according to multiple reports. He's expected to miss at least 2 games, however, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. WR Tyler Boyd has already drawn 22.3% of Cincinnati targets on the season and will be an even stronger weekly volume bet for as long as Green's out -- especially this week against the favored Saints and their weak secondary. Green's absence also adds target upside to the Cincinnati backfield and TE C.J. Uzomah. WR John Ross returned to practice Monday after missing Week 8 with a groin injury. We'll see if he's ready to play against New Orleans. Alex Erickson and Cody Core sit next on the WR depth chart. Cincinnati also promoted rookie WR Auden Tate from the practice squad Monday.
NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Bengals WR John Ross is expected to miss "a few weeks" with his groin injury. It's an aggravation of the issue that cost him 2 games earlier this season. Tampa gets the Bengals this Sunday before a Week 9 bye, so it's possible Ross only misses 1 game. But he can be dropped from most redraft rosters.
Bengals WR John Ross exited Sunday night's game in Kansas City with a groin injury. He had missed the previous 2 games with a groin issue. We'll see how much time this costs him, but Ross isn't worth rostering in redraft leagues.
Bengals WR John Ross (groin) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He can’t be trusted in Week 7 fantasy lineups, but his return is good news for QB Andy Dalton, who’s already in a good spot against a leaky Chiefs defense.
Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Steelers. A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd will continue to dominate targets.
Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. He shouldn’t be in Week 6 fantasy lineups, but his return would be good news for QB Andy Dalton.
Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Josh Malone will step in as Cincinnati's #3 WR but isn't a fantasy option. A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon figure to dominate targets.
Bengals WR John Ross (groin) was held out of Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday. That doesn't bode well for his chances of playing against the Dolphins this weekend. Ross' absence would leave Josh Malone as Cincinnati's #3 WR -- and push more targets toward A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd.
The Bengals have released WR Brandon LaFell. Cincinnati's #2 WR the past 2 seasons, LaFell was being pushed down the depth chart by the team's younger receivers, namely John Ross. LaFell's agent admitted that he'd be "lobbying" for his client's release. We'll see where LaFell lands, but he's unlikely to be a 2018 fantasy factor. Meanwhile, the door is open for a breakout season for Ross.
Bengals WR John Ross put in full workouts with his team over the past week, according the Cincinnati Enquirer. It's notable because he didn't participate in 11-on-11 drills last year until Aug. 14. “He’s had so few snaps around 11 guys on the other side of the ball, so this was great work for him and great experience for him that he was not able to get a year ago," HC Marvin Lewis said. We'll see how Ross progresses through his 1st full offseason and camp. But he's basically free at the end of 2018 fantasy football drafts right now -- a fine chance to take in a pass offense with target opportunity behind A.J. Green.
Bengals QB Andy Dalton likes what he's seen from WR John Ross early this offseason. “He looks good. Completely different than he did last year,” Dalton said. “You can tell he worked hard. It looks like he’s getting back to where he was. He looks smooth. Everyone knew he was fast, but he’s not just a straight-line guy. He can stop and go. He’s got some shiftiness to him." Ross went catch-less as a rookie after undergoing shoulder surgery prior to the draft and then injuring his knee in the preseason finale. “Last year he was trying to learn and rehab his shoulder at the same time," Dalton said. "But seeing it on paper and actually going out and doing it are two completely different things. Now that he’s had an offseason to get healthy, you can tell. He’s catching the ball really well. He’s going up and getting it the little we’ve done so far.” The 9th overall pick of last year's draft still boasts plenty of upside. He's a "buy" target in dynasty leagues and worth a late-round fliers in redrafts.
The Bengals have placed WR John Ross on IR. It ends a woefully disappointing rookie season for the 9th overall pick of this spring's draft. Ross appeared in 3 games, played 17 snaps and touched the ball once -- a 12-yard carry way back in Week 2 on which he lost a fumble. He caught 0 of 2 targets. Ross fell behind after offseason shoulder surgery, hurt his knee in late August and also dealt with an ankle injury during the middle of the season. Durability remains a major concern for a guy who entered the league with an extensive injury history.
