|For most receivers picked in the top-10 a 21-210-7 line in their 2nd season would be a major disappointment. For Ross, it was a gigantic improvement over his abysmal rookie year. Yes, you read the previous sentence correctly, somehow Ross scored a touchdown 33 percent of the time he caught the ball! Suffice to say a major touchdown regression is on the way for the 3rd year receiver from Washington. Likely on a do or die season, the colossal bust has to hope a new coaching staff can coax some more production out of him. I just don't see it happening. He's never projected as a possession guy, and for a player who's known for his deep threat speed, his yards-per-catch average was mere decimal places better than Kyle Rudolph (yuck!) last year. I'd be shocked if this Bengal offense can support more than two fantasy viable pass catchers, and Ross won't be one of them.

FFToday's Take: Ross started out the season on fire, but it would be unwise to expect similar production anytime soon, especially given the way Auden Tate has emerged in his absence. With that said, Ross' speed should open up the field for Tate and Tyler Boyd. Ross can be added off waivers in deeper leagues, but he's a high-risk flyer - especially during the fantasy playoffs - at best at this point.
