Ross earned himself a spot on the 53-man roster thanks in part to his versatility and ability to play multiple positions. He may not see many targets in the passing game but could rack up kick return yards, making him a deep option in leagues that award such stats.
Ross snagged two receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's 20-13 preseason win over the Buccaneers.
Ross made a push for a spot on the 53-man roster on Wednesday night, scoring one of Washington's two touchdowns. The wideout finds himself on the roster bubble but a spot may emerge, with Josh Doctson (Achilles) beginning the season on the PUP list and Jamison Crowder (knee) not at full health.
Ross hauled in one reception for five yards in Friday's preseason win over the Bills.
Ross had a less-than-noteworthy performance on Friday night, as he looks to solidify a spot on the final 53-man roster. He'll likely receive more reps in the preseason finale next Thursday as head coach Jay Gruden has already ruled out the starters. Look for Ross to line up alongside Ryan Grant and Maurice Harris with Josh Doctson (Achilles) and Jamison Crowder (knee) both nursing injuries.
Ross gathered in four of five passes for 58 yards and two touchdowns during Friday's preseason victory versus the Jets.
The Redskins kept Kirk Cousins, DeSean Jackson, and Pierre Garcon on the sideline, so Ross' first-half end-zone visits can be taken with a grain of salt. However, Ross certainly has a rapport with Colt McCoy, who found him for a 15-yard gain and three-yard touchdown during one mid-second quarter drive. After the Jets' ensuing drive ended with a Geno Smith interception, McCoy connected with Ross from 39 yards out for another score on the very next play. While Josh Doctson's continued absence with a sore Achilles has been a boon for Ross, the evident depth at wide receiver in Washington will likely hinder his ability to make a consistent mark in his third season.
