Ross suffered a knee injury in the fourth preseason game and will miss multiple weeks.

Week 3: at Green Bay Packers

All WR vs GB

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Andy Dalton has had a very rough start to the season as his Bengals offense has yet to score a touchdown in either of their first two games. Dalton has been extremely ineffective, completing only 54.5% of his passes with four interceptions while taking eight sacks behind a struggling offensive line. In large part to this poor offensive line play against the pass rush, Dalton has had very little time to find any of his receivers. Dalton made some big throws against the Texans last week while protecting the ball without any turnovers, but he still made a startling number of bad reads and overthrows. Dalton was not helped a ton by his receivers, being forced to throw it away five times as his targets could not get open. A.J. Green led the team with six catches on eight targets for 67 yards. Dalton has targeted the tight end position on only 7% of attempts this season--a league-low. This is not good for Tyler Eifert, who hauled in three receptions for 42 yards last week after only catching one ball for one yard in Week 1. The Packers defense was lit up for 34 points last week. Their passing defense held last year's MVP Matt Ryan at bay, statistically, allowing him to pass for only 252 yards and one touchdown. However, Ryan did what exactly what he needed to do as the Falcons relied heavily on their rushing attack due to their early lead. The Packers secondary still looked good on the pass plays they did have to defend though. Rookie cornerback Kevin King was a shining star for the Packers as he didn't allow a single reception when targeted, in addition to defending a pass in what should have been a mismatch against Julio Jones. The Packers pass rush was very strong last week as well, dropping Matt Ryan three times for 29 negative yards. Clay Matthews applied solid pressure as he led the team with 1.5 sacks. Safety Kentrell Brice and cornerback Davon House both had to leave the game with injuries last week, both neither appeared on the team's injury report thus far this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs HOU (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)

Ross made his NFL debut, but it was a short one. Midway through the first quarter, he took an end around and showed off his blazing speed running for a 12-yard gain before taking a big hit and fumbling. Jadeveon Clowney returned it 49 yards the other way and changed the momentum of the game. Ross didn't touch the ball again after the mistake. He played just five snaps.

Bengals | John Ross has inauspicious debut (Fri Sep 15, 12:59 AM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) had one carry for 12 yards against the Houston Texans on Thursday, Sept. 14. He was not targeted as a receiver and fumbled his lone carry, which was recovered by Houston.

Our View: Ross was benched after the fumble in a move the Bengals might regret. He seems to have little to no redraft value now with the issues on offense.

Bengals | John Ross active for Week 2 (Thu Sep 14, 07:28 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

Our View: Between his injury and the offensive line there is very little value here. Don't bother, especially on a Thursday night.
