Bengals' Alex Erickson: Shut out in loss to Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erickson was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's loss to the Saints. He did have five kick returns for 110 yards.

There was some speculation that Erickson might be more active in the passing game with A.J. Green out, but it didn't work out that way, though the Bengals ran hardly any plays in the blowout loss.

Bengals' Alex Erickson: Just one catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erickson was held to one catch for five yards on four targets in Sunday's win over the Bucs. He was on the field for 50 offensive snaps.

Erickson picked up a start in place of the injured John Ross, but instead of lining up in the slot he was outside more often, leaving Tyler Boyd to carve up the Bucs from the slot instead.

Bengals' Alex Erickson: Draws start Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erickson will draw the start in the slot Week 8 against Tampa Bay, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Erickson is typically better known for his role on special teams as a return man, as he has yet to surpass three targets in a single game this season. With John Ross (groin) inactive, however, he'll draw the start and could see added looks behind the likes of top receiving options A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd. Even with a very favorable matchup -- Tampa Bay allows the second-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers in PPR formats -- Erickson is a bit of a risky fantasy play.

Bengals' Alex Erickson: Quiet in passing game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erickson had just one catch that lost a yard on two targets in Sunday night's loss to the Chiefs.

Andy Dalton nearly exclusively targeted A.J. Green in the first half, and the team had a number of three-and-outs, thus limiting Erickson's opportunities. He also had 65 yards in kickoff returns.

Bengals' Alex Erickson: Snags two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erickson caught two of three targets for eight yards during Sunday's 28-21 loss to Pittsburgh.

Erickson has now seen three targets in each of the past two games following just two in the first month of the season. The targets coincide with the absence of tight ends Tyler Eifert (ankle) and Tyler Kroft (foot), the former ending up on injured reserve. With a thinner tight end group, down-the-roster receivers such as Erickson become more valuable. Erickson has converted his targets into a measly 6.7-yards-per-catch average thus far this season, but takes on a Kansas City defense Sunday that ranks 24th in the league with a 12.5-opponent-yards-per-catch average.
