Joe Burrow has already started to build a rapport with at least one Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver.
According to a source, Burrow and John Ross have trained together out in the west coast. Burrow worked out with Ross prior to the 2020 NFL Draft and those on-field workouts continued post-draft.
The story said establishing a connection with Burrow will have a major impact on Ross’ future with the franchise. Ross is on the final year of his rookie deal and the Bengals declined to pick up his fifth-year option this offseason. Injuries have hampered Ross throughout his Cincinnati career. He got off to a promising start in 2019, but his season was derailed due to a sternoclavicular injury in Week 4.
CIN WR John Ross - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Cleveland
John Ross had his best performance since coming back from injury with six catches for 84 yards. He also ran the ball twice. Ross played 79% of the snaps which was his highest since he returned.
The Browns are next up and are ranked 10th in aFPA to wide receivers. We expect both teams to play to win this game and starters to play most of the game on both sides of the ball. Ross will get some fantasy numbers but not as good as last week. Keep him on the bench for Week 17.
