Scouting report

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.

CIN WR John Ross - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Miami
John Ross actually played fewer snaps this past Sunday then he did his first game back. We expected this to head in the other direction. He ended up with only two catches for the second straight game.

Miami has been awful against the pass this year, but even with a great matchup, we don't expect Ross to make enough plays to warrant being a starter on your fantasy roster for Week 16. Keep him on the bench.

CIN WR John Ross - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs New England
John Ross returned to the lineup for the Bengals and as we thought, he was eased into the lineup. He ended up with two catches for 28 yards and played 51% of the snaps on Sunday. Expect those numbers to rise here at the end of the season.

Ross will face the Pats who are second in aFPA to wide receivers. He will see more playing time and remember the numbers he was putting up good numbers before he was hurt, but the tough matchup places him on the bench for Week 15.

CIN WR John Ross - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Cleveland
John Ross returns to the active roster after missing nine weeks with an injury. Before he got hurt, Ross had 16 catches for 328 yards and three touchdowns. It looked like the former first-round pick was finally breaking through. He will probably be eased back in the offense for now so his fantasy value is low at this time but should raise the last quarter of the season as he gets more snaps.

CIN WR John Ross - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Pittsburgh
After two 100+ receiving yards games and three touchdown catches, John Ross came back down to earth with a two-catch game for 22 yards and a lost fumble. The Bengals are hoping it's just a hiccup and they will get the play they expected when they drafted Ross in the first round 2017.

The Bengals face the Steelers who are 25th in aFPA to wide receivers. It's a good matchup for Ross who we expect will be better than last week, but maybe not as good as the first two weeks.

Start Ross as a WR3 for Week 4. There is a good chance he will get into the end zone and have four or five catches to give you seem decent numbers as your third receiver,

CIN WR John Ross - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Buffalo
John Ross' stock is rising as he recorded another 100-yard receiving day. Ross has 11 receptions for 270 yards and three touchdowns through the first two weeks. When A.J. Green returns from injury, the Bengals could have one of the best receiving corps in the NFL.

Ross' numbers might take a hit this week as he faces the Bills who were 5th in aFPA to wide receivers in 2018. He still will be effective, but not enough to be in your starting lineup for Week 3.

Keep Ross on the bench because of the tough matchup, but if he still on the waiver wire, make sure you grab him because he appears to be one of those receivers who figure things out their third season.

CIN WR John Ross - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs San Francisco
The biggest surprise in the NFL in Week 1 was receiver John Ross. The former first-round pick has struggled the first two seasons of his career, but caught seven passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns - all career highs. In fact, the seven catches now represent 25% of his career receptions.

Ross has a neutral matchup in Week 2 against San Francisco. The big question is was last week a fluke and will opposing defenses now pay more attention to him.

You can consider Ross a low-end WR3 or flex this week. If he is on your waiver wire, he is worth a pickup and could end up being a break out fantasy player.
