Until Hunter Sharp finds regular playing time with the Bengals and puts up good numbers, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.
Sharp was promoted to the Bengals' 53-man roster Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Sharp has been on the Bengals' practice squad since Nov. 20 and joins the active roster ahead of Week 17. Tyler Boyd (knee) moves to injured reserve in a corresponding move, while Sharp should serve as a depth option at wide receiver Sunday at Pittsburgh.
Sharp signed with the Bengals' practice squad Tuesday. Sharp was released from Buffalo's practice squad in early November after spending the majority of the season there. The former Utah State receiver has five receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in his short career, and he'll look to provide depth to Cincinnati's wideout corps.
Sharp was released from Buffalo's practice squad Wednesday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports. Sharp was added to to Bills' practice squad in mid-September after spending some time in 2017 with the Broncos and Giants. The 24-year-old was let go at roster cutdowns by New York and is now looking for a new team or practice squad once again.
Sharp was added to Buffalo's practice squad Tuesday. Sharp spent the 2017 season with the Giants and, in the two games he was active, accumulated five catches for 54 yards and a touchdown. That, however, wasn't enough for him to make New York's roster this season, as he was released in early September. If activated, Sharp -- who also has experience as a punt returner -- will provide depth to Buffalo's receiving corps.
Sharp was held without a catch on his lone target and called for a fair catch on his only punt-return attempt during Thursday's preseason finale against the Patriots. The Giants are looking for an answer at punt returner and they may have one in Sharp, who returned a punt for a touchdown during last week's preseason game against the Jets. While he was unable to follow up with another impressive performance Thursday, neither did anyone else on the roster, which bodes well for Sharp's chances of making the 53-man roster.
