Ross corralled two of four targets, compiling 11 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Chargers.
With six touchdowns on 18 receptions this season, the rate at which Ross is scoring is completely unsustainable. The league leaders in receiving touchdowns this season -- Davante Adams, Antonio Brown and Eric Ebron at 12 apiece -- hit the end zone on a collective 15.3 percent of their receptions, while Ross has scored on 33 percent of his in 2018. Having battled through an injury-riddled rookie campaign in which he did not record a single catch in three games, the young wideout has encouraged by beginning to make his mark in the NFL by way of prolific red-zone trips. He's bound to slow down at some point, though that may not come in Week 15 with the Bengals hosting a Raiders defense that has allowed a league-high 31 passing touchdowns in 2018.
Ross caught two of three targets for 13 yards and added a two-yard run during Sunday's 24-10 loss to Denver.
Ross came into Sunday with four touchdowns in his last five games, including three straight games with a score. Even with a depleted secondary, Denver's pass defense kept him in check Sunday with the help of first-time starter Jeff Driskel at quarterback. Despite Sunday's weak showing, Ross will be worth keeping an eye on should A.J. Green (foot) return to the injury report after exiting Sunday's game. In three games without Green this season, Ross tallied 20 targets. Next up is a top-10-rated Chargers pass defense.
Ross caught three of seven targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-20 loss to Cleveland.
Ross extended his touchdown streak to three games on a two-yard score late in the first half. That was the only touchdown quarterback Andy Dalton threw before exiting the contest due to a thumb injury. With Dalton's status in question and the possibility of A.J. Green (toe) making his return and bumping Ross out of two-receiver sets, stretching his touchdown streak to four games won't be easy for the 2017 first-rounder against the Broncos in Week 13.
Ross caught two of seven targets for 27 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-21 loss to Baltimore.
Ross' primary contribution came midway through the third quarter when he beat his man up the sideline and then came back for the lofted Andy Dalton pass, a 22-yard touchdown throw. It was Ross' second score in as many weeks with A.J. Green (foot) out of the lineup. In that time, Ross has done little else, managing just four total receptions, but it's clear that the Bengals are trying to emphasize him in the offense. He has 13 targets in two games with Green out, as compared to 16 in his five previous games. Next up is a Browns defense that has given up plenty of passing yards this season, but that has otherwise challenged opposing passing offenses with turnovers.
Ross (groin) is active Sunday against the Ravens.
Ross was limited in practice the first two days this week, but suiting up in full Friday signaled the wideout would likely be ready for the Week 11 matchup. With A.J. Green (toe) inactive last week against the Saints, Ross saw his most snaps (36) since Week 2, trailing only Tyler Boyd in terms of wide receiver snap share. Look for a similar alignment this week against a Baltimore defense giving up the fifth-least fantasy points per game to wide receivers (PPR formats), as Green is once again listed as inactive, leaving Boyd and Ross likely to draw starts again.
