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.
Huddle Up: 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.

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

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

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

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross has had issues with consistency during spring practices, according to Jay Morrison of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: This news certainly isn't going to surprise fantasy owners. His big-play speed is well known, but between frequent injuries and his up-and-down production, Ross is no more than a late-round lottery ticket.
