Remember when Ross was a deemed "bad" by many analysts? Two games into the Zac Taylor era, Ross has totaled 20 targets, 11 receptions, 270 yards, and three touchdowns. By comparison, he had 210 yards on 60 targets under Marvin Lewis the last two years combined. Coaching matters, peeps. The Bills have been a pretty devastating unit against wide receivers recently, as they allowed just 16 wide receivers finish as top-36 options last year, which ranked as the ninth-fewest in the league. Is there any silver lining to this matchup? Well, yeah. Tre'Davious White and Levi Wallace are the starting perimeter cornerbacks for the Bills, and they're both somewhat slow by NFL standards. White ran a 4.47-second 40-yard dash at his Combine, while Wallace run took 4.63 seconds during his performance. Ross' speed has shown up in this offense, as he's been targeted deep four times through two weeks, catching three of them for 79 yards and a touchdown. The best part about Ross is that Taylor isn't locking him into a deep threat-only the way the old offense was, as Ross' 11.3 air yards per target is rather middling. This is a tough matchup, regardless, but all it takes is one for Ross who should be considered a boom-or-bust WR4 in this game.

Fantasy Impact
