Jeremy Rauch of Fox 19 in Cincinnati had a source tell him that WR John Ross may not like football. Ross is listed as doubtful for Week 8 with an illness and has been a healthy scratch multiple times this season.
The source was anonymous, but if true, it is a tough fall from being a top 10 pick for Ross. Hopefully this is nothing more than just falling out with the sport he played and nothing more severe.
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.
