2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
The fact that John Ross and I had the same amount of receptions last year tells you all you need to know. Showing a supreme lack of preparation and eventually health, Ross got a redshirt year after being the 9th overall pick in the 2017 draft. There was a reason he was a top-10 pick, and the Bengals desperately need a lid-lifting threat to open the field for the rest of the playmakers. Looking back on his college tape, and his numbers, he has this ability, but can and will he be able to put it together? The Bengals coaches seem to think so, and with a fully healthy offseason, he should be a big part of this offense. The big issue with his fantasy value comes from volume. He projects more as a deep threat, and will have to battle for scraps behind AJ Green. The good news is the team recently jettisoned LaFell making way for increased opportunities for Ross. I do think Cinci will look to get him the ball in creative ways, and like his overall upside, but not enough to where I'd feel comfortable drafting him. Keep tabs on how he looks in the preseason, and it's possible he could move into flier territory before Week 1.

News From The Past 90 Days
Tyler Boyd locked in as starting slot receiver
Bengals revamp wide receiver group
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 4, 8:00 am

Cincinnati Bengals
Tyler Boyd is locked in as the starting slot receiver, but along with Ross and Malone, they can all line up outside. Alex Erickson continues to perform like a player you will regret cutting just as he has his first two camps with the team. (Cincinnati Enquirer)

FFToday's Take: After releasing Brandon LaFell earlier this week, the Bengals are counting on some of their young receivers to fill key roles in 2018. With Body expected to start in the slot, John Ross and Josh Malone are the frontrunners to see the most reps on the outside opposite A.J. Green. Malone injured his hamstring in practice this week but is expected back next week.

Bengals parting ways with Brandon LaFell
Receiver has been lobbying for release
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Aug 2, 8:54 am

Cincinnati Bengals
The #Bengals are cutting WR Brandon LaFell, his agent Jonathan Feinsod tells me. "We have been lobbying for his release for some time now and appreciate the Bengals granting our request," Feinsod said. Marvin Lewis said this week LaFell was "feeling the heat" of the other receivers and that they could only keep so many. Might’ve been a flare to the rest of the league that LaFell was available. But he’s free to sign elsewhere when the transaction goes through today. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: LaFell finished with a 52-548-3 line last season ranking 58th in FPts among wide receivers. Letting LaFell go means Tyler Boyd and John Ross should receive more opportunities however it's difficult to imagine either one of them more than a weekly Flex option. Ross, who has flashed in camp, will likely receive the most fantasy buzz.
