Ross turned seven targets into just three catches for 16 yards in Sunday's 31-21 loss to Carolina. Ross was quiet in this one, even after A.J. Green left the game with a groin injury in the third quarter. Fellow Bengals wideout Tyler Boyd has 223 yards and two touchdowns over the past two weeks, so Boyd would certainly be the first player owners should try to spring for should Green sit out next week's road clash with the Falcons.
Ross was held to one catch for eight yards on four targets, along with one carry for minus-three yards in Thursday's win over the Ravens. Meanwhile, Tyler Boyd had a big day in the slot. It's only two games, but so far Ross is profiling as a boom-or-bust type of player, with limited opportunities to boom.
Ross caught his first NFL touchdown pass in Sunday's win over the Colts, a three-yard reception in the second quarter. Though Ross was on the field for 36 snaps, he was targeted just twice on the day with that one catch. He draws the Ravens on Thursday night in Week 2.
Ross caught two of four targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-13 preseason win over Buffalo. Ross saw the field for just 17 plays as a rookie last season, but he's primed for a significantly greater role in Year 2. The speedster ran a beautiful stop-and-go route, then deked a pair of defenders after the catch to score a 57-yard touchdown on Cincinnati's first play from scrimmage. Ross beat cornerback Vontae Davis again on a quick slant later in the first quarter, and he would have been off to the races but instead dropped the ball. While still a work in progress, Ross has an exciting mixture of explosiveness and opportunity.
Ross caught one of three targets for 29 yards and scored a two-point conversion during Saturday's 21-13 preseason win over the Cowboys. Ross waited until the second half to make his presence felt, registering a 29-yard gain to set up a field goal before capping a long touchdown drive with a catch for a two-point conversion. The second-year pro has just two catches to his name this preseason, but he's totaled 49 yards on those grabs, illustrating the explosive nature of his skill set. Ross is looking to stake his claim to a role in the offense and will look to get more involved next week against the Bills.
