Impending free-agent WR John Ross (Bengals) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $2.5 million - including $1 million guaranteed - with the New York Giants on Tuesday, March 16.
Huddle Up: The Giants entered the offseason wanting to improve at receiver, although this may not be the move their fans had in mind. Ross is long on talent but has been riddled with injuries as a pro. At the very least, he's a low-risk and low-cost addition who has flashed at times. He should give the Giants a pair of speed merchants on the perimeter - along with Darius Slayton - and allow Sterling Shepard to live in the slot. Fantasy owners need to keep a close eye on Ross early in the season, but he does not need to be drafted in most fantasy leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins will be one of the starting receivers in Week 3 because WR John Ross is inactive for the game. WR Auden Tate is also active this week after being inactive last week.
Huddle Up: Higgins is off to a slow start this season with only 35 receiving yards but should be more involved in the passing game this week. He has a chance to have success against the Philadelphia Eagles and could be a flex option in deeper leagues. Tate may see a handful of targets but can be avoided in most leagues. Fantasy players should keep an eye on Ross' status to see when he will return to the lineup.
