John Ross will not have fifth-year option picked up by Bengals

The Bengals are declining John Ross’ fifth-year option and he should become a free agent after the 2020 season.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, the Bengals have declined picking up Ross’ fifth-year option. He has only played 24 games since being drafted ninth overall by the Bengals in 2017. Ross will most likely be fourth on depth chart behind AJ Green, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins. He is currently 65th among all wide receivers in the latest expert consensus rankings. Ross is mainly a flyer in all league formats.

Fantasy Impact

Ross had a mini-breakout interrupted by a broken clavicle but he came back for the final few games. More importantly, he finally showed the talent that made him a first-round draft pick a few years back. Ross is an interesting buy in dynasty leagues with the Bengals likely to upgrade the quarterback position by drafting Joe Burrow.
