Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (hamstring) was limited to position work to start training camp because of hamstring tightness.
Huddle Up: Ross has battled injuries since entering the league and has struggled to make an impact when he has been healthy. There's always a chance he finally stays on the field and puts it all together, but he is no more than a late-round lottery ticket for fantasy owners.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross said his number change this offseason was part of a plan to 'start everything over' and reboot his career.
Huddle Up: Ross has been battling injuries since entering the league, and despite his plans to start fresh, the reports from spring practices haven't been encouraging. At this point, he is no more than a late-round lottery ticket for fantasy owners.

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.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (tightness) missed voluntary minicamp with general tightness.
Huddle Up: While it doesn't sound serious, his injury history isn't exactly encouraging. Ross has the speed to produce big plays, but he's yet to show he can produce with any sort of consistency. At this point, you can probably leave him on the waiver wire.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross will get a clean slate to prove himself under new head coach Zac Taylor, who called Ross 'electric' during his college days.
Huddle Up: Ross has battled injuries for most of his two seasons in the NFL, although he was available much more often in 2018. On one hand, it speaks to his playmaking ability that he turned 21 catches into seven touchdowns last season. On the other hand, he only corralled 36.2 percent of his 58 targets, which is an abysmal catch rate at any competitive level. There's still a chance he could experience a post-hype breakout, but fantasy owners would be wise to play the wait-and-see game at this point with him.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross is being shopped around the NFL, according to sources. Ross was the ninth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. According to NFL media insider Ian Rapoport, a fresh start will be welcomed by both parties.
Huddle Up: After Ross was held to exactly zero catches in three games as a rookie, he managed to score seven times over just 21 grabs in 2018. A change in regime may be the impetus for this move, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up in 2019. There are several teams in need of a burner, and Ross only helped his case by proving to be a capable weapon in the red zone last year. He could be as valuable as a low-tier WR2 in the right setting, but gamers should safely treat him as a WR3 or flex, depending on the size of their league.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross caught one pass for three yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Ross has been targeted 10 times over the last two games but has only recorded two catches and nine yards during that span. He does have five touchdowns in the last seven games but should only be considered a flex option for desperate owners in deeper leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Ross probably will be in the starting lineup this week with Tyler Boyd out of the lineup. He has some fantasy value because of his touchdown potential, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Ross may see more targets in the passing game if Tyler Boyd is not able to play. He has posted at least 50 yards in only one game this season but does have four touchdowns in the last six games. He will be facing a tough Cleveland Browns secondary and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross caught one pass for six yards against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, Dec. 16. He was targeted five times.
Huddle Up: Ross had cobbled together a little value by virtue of four TDs over his previous five games, but the second-year man managed just one grab despite facing a shaky secondary. Outside of the scoring plays it's been another disappointing campaign for Ross.
