Bengals' Brandon LaFell: Remains projected starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaFell remains the Bengals projected #2 wide receiver, the Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr. reports.

The conventional wisdom is that while LaFell is the starter, he's going to get surpassed in production by Tyler Boyd, rookie John Ross or perhaps both. That's the percentage play, as LaFell lacks palpable upside, but Ross has yet to play this preseason and Boyd could get relegated to a slot role. What's most likely to happen is that none of the three produce regularly in 2017.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Fighting for targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd had two catches for 45 yards in the Bengals' preseason loss to the Chiefs on Saturday.

The 2016 second-round pick out of Pitt has been under the radar when evaluating the Bengals' target share, but rookie John Ross will probably be brought along slowly given his inexperience and his shoulder injury. Boyd will most often work in the slot and could produce more than Ross and starter (for now) Brandon LaFell.

Bengals' Wallace Gilberry: Roster spot at risk
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilberry is at risk of getting cut before the start of the season, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The Bengals loaded up on the defensive line in the draft the last two years, and Gilberry hasn't been all that productive in the pass rush. The team already cut Brandon Thompson (who subsequently signed with the Browns), but another veteran DL could still be on the chopping block.

Bengals' John Ross: Uncertain for third preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (shoulder) is hopeful that he can play this weekend against the Redskins, but couldn't yet commit to being available, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The goal for Ross remains the same - be 100 percent healed and ready to go for Week 1 of the regular season. He might be the rare key player to play in the fourth preseason game next week, just to get some reps. It's likely that the Bengals will work him into the offense slowly to begin the season.

Bengals' John Ross: DNP on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross was held out of Saturday's preseason loss to the Chiefs, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Although Ross was able to participate in full pads during 11-on-11 drills last week, the Bengals opted for caution as he progresses toward full health. On the one hand, an appearance in the all-important preseason Week 3 will be key for the rookie's early-season prospects. However, holding Ross out again Sunday at Washington wouldn't shock in the slightest in order to ensure he's as close to 100 percent as possible by Week 1. His activity level over the next few days will forecast whether Ross is in line for his first NFL game.
