Player Outlook

Alex Erickson got some playing time last year because of injuries to the Bengals' more prominent receivers, but in order to get more he'll have to really improve this offseason. Until he lands a consistent role and does well with it, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him.

Player News
  • Erickson had six catches for 63 yards in the Bengals' loss to the Steelers on Sunday. He also had 87 kick return yards. Erickson's output represented two-thirds of the passing offense for the game, unfortunately. He finished the season with 20 catches for 167 yards, with the vast majority of that production coming in the final three weeks after injuries sidelined both Tyler Boyd and A.J. Green. If he returns next season, most of his production will remain on special teams.

  • Erickson caught both of his targets, accumulating 35 receiving yards during Sunday's 26-18 loss to the Browns. The third-year man out of Wisconsin has 58 receiving yards over the past two weeks, more than he's racked up in any two-game span since Weeks 11 and 12 of last season. Usually a full-time special teams ace, Erickson has garnered seven targets in the past two games, a vast increase compared to his typical passing game involvement (1.5 targets per contest entering Sunday). Erickson also had a 33-yard kick return Sunday that helped spark Cincinnati's first scoring drive of the afternoon (a field goal to cut the deficit to 23-3). If Erickson continues to garner attention in the passing game with A.J. Green (foot) on injured reserve, it will come against a Pittsburgh defense that ranks 13th against the pass (237 yards allowed per game).

  • Bengals' Alex Erickson: Targeted five times
    By RotoWire Staff

    Erickson caught three of five targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 30-14 win over the Raiders. Erickson experienced an uptick in usage after teammate Tyler Boyd exited the game with a knee injury. He tied for the team lead in targets, equaling his season high in catches while finishing one yard shy of his personal best in that category. Erickson could see more targets next week against the Browns if Boyd is forced to miss out, but the latter downplayed the severity of his injury after the game.

  • Bengals' Alex Erickson: Tallies 14 yards in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Erickson had a 14-yard run during Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Chargers. The 14 total yards were the most Erickson has picked up since Week 5. The Wisconsin product has been targeted just twice, gaining two receiving yards, over his past five games. Cincinnati is bottoming out with seven losses in the last eight games, the past two with backup Jeff Driskel at quarterback. A rebound is unlikely against a Raiders defense ranked in the top half of the league in passing, surrendering just 253 yards per game.

  • Bengals' Alex Erickson: One token catch
    By RotoWire Staff

    Erickson had one catch on his lone target for two yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. Erickson barely saw the field when the Bengals had the ball, seeing just five snaps on offense.
