Bengals' John Ross: First NFL touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' John Ross: Scores on 57-yard bomb
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 managed to deke 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. He's still a work in progress, but Ross' mix of explosiveness and opportunity is exciting.

Bengals' John Ross: Makes presence felt versus Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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, hauling in a 29-yard gain to set up a field goal before capping off 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.

Bengals' John Ross: Moves up notch on depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals released Brandon LaFell in large part because Ross and Tyler Boyd have looked so good in camp and were expected to take on bigger roles, the Dayton Daily News reports.

While this release seems shocking to us and to LaFell's teammates, LaFell and his agent saw the writing on the wall and were actually requesting his release. This news however doesn't guarantee that Ross will start - it could very well be Boyd lining up opposite A.J. Green. But Ross will see the field more regardless, plus the Bengals would prefer if Boyd ends up being the slot receiver. In fact, the Bengals need him to see more action if there is any chance of them having a successful season.

Bengals' John Ross: Bulks up in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross added a noticeable amount of muscle to his upper body this offseason, Katherine Terrell of reports.

Dating back to his college days, Ross has typically been focused on rehabbing from injuries rather than building strength. However, his quick recovery from December shoulder surgery allowed for a relatively normal offseason, with the 2017 first-round pick even participating in 11-on-11 work throughout OTAs and minicamp. While he'll always rely on speed above all else, Ross may have better luck staying healthy with more muscle packed onto his thin frame. He'll compete for a starting job during training camp, squaring off against Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd for a role alongside entrenched No. 1 target A.J. Green.
