Ross caught four of eight passes for 112 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 41-17 loss to the 49ers.
Coming off a monster 158-yard, two-touchdown opener against the Seahawks, Ross was fairly quiet until the final minute of the game when Andy Dalton hit Ross over the middle for a 66-yard catch-and-run for a score. The play was probably an unnecessary reminder of how Ross only needs a touch or two to get a game's worth of production. Starter A.J. Green (ankle) reportedly warmed up before the game on his road back to the field, but Ross' play-making ability has likely earned him a sizable role in this offense with or without Green in the lineup.
Ross caught seven of 12 targets for 158 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 21-20 win over the Seahawks.
Ross led the team in targets and receiving yardage, thanks in large part to touchdown receptions of 33 and 55 yards. This was easily a new career high in receiving yardage for Ross, who came in with just 210 yards through his first 16 NFL games. This is a welcome sight for the Bengals and his fantasy owners, who have both longed to see him fulfill his potential at the NFL level. Ross could play a big role opposite Tyler Boyd for as long as A.J. Green (ankle) remains sidelined, with his next opportunity coming next Sunday at home against the 49ers.
