Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 17 vs PIT (6 / 6 / 63 / 0 rec)
Erickson was the lone bright spot for the Bengals passing offense. He caught each of his six targets and had 63 of Cincinnati's 95 receiving yards on the day. Erickson's strong route running and sure hands stood out on a day when the rest of the Bengals receivers struggled. He made a nice adjustment to make a catch over the middle on a ball thrown slightly behind him for a 12-yard gain. Erickson also showed some nice run after the catch ability. For a smaller guy, he plays with real physicality and was able to lower his shoulder and push forward for extra yards after a couple short grabs. Er-ickson was the clear go-to guy on obvious passing downs and was able to consistently win his one-on-one matchups in the slot.
2018 Week 16 vs CLE (2 / 2 / 35 / 0 rec)
Erickson got the start but wasn't targeted until late in the game. He did make the most of his opportunities, diving to make an impressive 28-yard catch down the side-line and also hauling in a 7-yard catch on a fourth-quarter touchdown drive.
2018 Week 15 vs OAK (5 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)
Erickson had a solid game that could have been even better but for two John Ross penalties that cost him yardage. One was a hold and the other a block in the back, that wiped out a long gain. Erickson also starred on special teams, with a 77-yard kick return putting the Bengals in position to ice the game. With Tyler Boyd likely out for the season, Erickson should be a starter the rest of the way.
2018 Week 8 vs TB (4 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Erickson was the clear #3 receiver, playing 77% of the snaps. However, he continues to be ineffective despite seeing a lot of single coverage. If John Ross can return healthy after the bye, Erickson will not have much of a role on offense.
