Cincinnati Bengals WR Alex Erickson caught six passes for 88 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 16. He was targeted six times during the game.
Huddle Up: Erickson received a bigger role in the passing game this week since Tyler Boyd was not available to play. His role for Week 17 will depend on if Boyd is cleared to play. He probably will see a handful of targets if Boyd sits again but would be a risky fantasy option against the Baltimore Ravens.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Alex Erickson could be on the roster bubble during training camp since the team added WRs Tee Higgins and Scotty Washington this offseason. The team would save $1.9 million in salary cap space if Erickson were released.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Alex Erickson managed two grabs for 43 yards on eight targets in the Week 12 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Erickson has emerged as a decent WR5 fantasy option in deeper leagues, but avoid him in all other formats. Like most Bengals, he is just too inconsistent this season. The Bengals host the Jets in Week 13.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Alex Erickson finished without a catch on two targets in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Erickson exploded for 14 grabs, 234 yards and 21 targets in the two games before the bye, but apparently Ryan Finley doesn't jell with the receiver like Andy Dalton. It should be back to the waiver wire for Erickson if you took a chance on him after the bye.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Alex Erickson posted six receptions for a team-high 97 yards on seven targets in Week 8 against the Los Angeles Rams in London.
Huddle Up: Erickson led the team in receiving yardage for the second consecutive game. That's 14 grabs for 234 yards on 21 targets over the past two games. If you're desperate for a WR4 or flex fantasy in leagues of 12 or more teams, Erickson is worth a look. However, remember that the Bengals are off in Week 9.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Alex Erickson has caught 12 passes on 20 targets for 184 yards over the last two games, and Ben Baby of ESPN.com believes Erickson will continue produce as long as WR A.J. Green (ankle) remains sidelined and defenses focus on slowing WR Tyler Boyd.
Huddle Up: Erickson's fantasy value may have a time limit, but until Green returns, he could be worth a look as a flex option in PPR formats.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Alex Erickson registered eight receptions on 14 targets for a career-high 137 yards in Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Erickson played a season-best 64 offensive snaps, too. A.J. Green is believed to be right around the corner in his return, but perhaps Erickson gets more of a look down the stretch for the winless Bengals. He is worth grabbing in deeper leagues if you have the roster flexibility. The Bengals meet the Rams in London in Week 8.
