Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) has been cleared to return to practice Wednesday, Nov. 13, and will be one of the players designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: Ross probably is still a few weeks away from returning to the lineup but could have a solid role in the passing game when he plays again. Fantasy players could consider adding him if they have extra room on their bench.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) is expected to miss multiple games in the range of a month or so due to injury, sources said Tuesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: While catching passes from QB Andy Dalton doesn't seem like a great role right now, WR Auden Tate is next up for targets behind Tyler Boyd with A.J. Green still sidelined for the foreseeable future. Tate should be added in all formats, while Damion Willis and Alex Erickson are options for deeper leagues. Don't be surprised if the Bengals add outside help, either. Anyone added to the thin receiving corps at this point would be worth at least some fantasy consideration.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) had his right arm in a sling after the Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: If Ross is forced to miss playing time, look for Auden Tate to be the biggest beneficiary behind Tyler Boyd. Damion Willis might also see a larger role, too, although Boyd and Tate are the best fantasy options. The Bengals host the Cardinals in Week 5.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) left the Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fourth quarter Monday, Sept. 30 and he is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Ross made a grab in the red zone, but was tackled hard, landing on his shoulder. He had three receptions for 36 yards before his injury.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross caught two of his six targets for 22 yards in a 21-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 3.
Huddle Up: After opening the year with a pair of monster efforts, he wasn't able to deliver any big plays against the Bills. Ross has started to shed his bust label, but this performance is a reminder that he should only be viewed as a boom-or-bust WR3.

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.
Huddle Up: Ross could have a bigger role in the passing game with A.J. Green still sidelined but probably should be keep on the bench in most fantasy leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 5.
Huddle Up: Ross may be one of the starting receivers for the Bengals, but it is not known how much success he will have against the Seattle Seahawks. Fantasy players in most leagues should be able to find better options for their lineups.
