Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 8 vs LAR (7 / 6 / 97 / 0 rec)

Erickson's snaps were down slightly (60%) as the Bengals used more 12-personnel. He did well with his limited opportunities, showing sure hands and strong run after the catch skills. He took a wide receiver screen for 11 yards. He did most of his damage on one garbage time 52-yard catch in the final minute of the game. Jalen Ramsey looked almost disinterested as he just let Erickson run right by him down the sideline.

2019 Week 7 vs JAX (14 / 8 / 137 / 0 rec, 2 / -2 / 0 rush)

The lone offensive bright spot for the Bengals was Erickson. He is a good route runner, has sure hands, and is excellent after the catch. He caught a slant for a gain of 12 yards, showing some wiggle to make a man miss and pick up a few extra yards at the end of the play. Erickson lost 11 yards on an end around that had no chance. Erickson really got rolling in the two-minute drill before halftime, when he had three catches for 87 yards. The biggest gain came on a 48-yard deep crossing route. He caught it in stride and showed nice acceleration to get down the sideline. A few plays later, he caught a short out route and then broke an attempted tackle by A.J. Bouye to get loose down the sideline for a 27-yard gain before getting knocked out of bounds just shy of the end zone. Even with the breakout performance, Erickson left some plays on the field. He was open on a deep fade route from the slot for what should have been at least a 40-yard gain and he let the ball drop right through his hands.

2019 Week 6 vs BAL (6 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec, 1 / 17 / 0 rush)

Erickson had a productive game. He caught each of the four catchable passes thrown to him, including a pretty 21-yard grab in traffic deep down the middle. He has shown reliable hands and very good quickness but his lack of size has contributed to his occasional struggles against physical cornerbacks. He was targeted in the middle of the end zone and it looked like the defender grabbed him coming out of his break but the referees didn't throw the flag. Erickson showed the burst that has made him a top returner, getting to the edge on an end around for a 17-yard rush.

2019 Week 5 vs ARI (1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Erickson was the starting Z-receiver in this game but suffered a concussion after being dragged down hard on a 7-yard catch.
