Week 11: at Baltimore Ravens

All WR vs BAL

FBG says: Tough matchup. There's still speculation as to whether A.J. Green will return this week, but it looks extremely unlikely. The Bengals will likely press on again without their future Hall of Famer, featuring Tyler Boyd in the No. 1 role, but that's a bit of a stretch. Boyd has enjoyed a major breakout, on pace for a 92-1,214-9 receiving line, but he's best cast as a complementary slot guy. He can get downfield, but not on the level of Green. Boyd was planned and accounted for last week by the Saints, and it's unlikely he'll catch the Ravens secondary napping. He caught 6 passes for 91 yards and scored against them in Week 2, but that came with Green running free on the other side. The true x-factor is speed demon John Ross, who's scored on three of his nine receptions thus far but is perpetually battling injury. His wheels will be Dalton's best chance at creating mismatches against a Baltimore defense that tends to hold well against passing games like this one. Baltimore's pass defense, which had been tightening back into a stout unit, took a step backward in Week 9. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 270 yards, the first time since Week 5 that anyone had topped 235, and 2 scores. Still, it's easy to believe in the personnel here - Roethlisberger didn't have a particularly easy time building those numbers. The pass rush is strong and explosive, led by a still-dominant Terrell Suggs (5.5 sacks) and supplemented with a full complement of sidekicks. And the cornerback group, led by Brandon Carr and Marlon Humphrey, has been limiting top receivers for most of the year. That includes recent matchups with Corey Davis (24 yards on 4 targets), Michael Thomas (69 on 9), Devin Funchess (27 on 3), and Antonio Brown (42 on 11).

Recent Game Summaries

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.
