Justyn Ross looked the part of college football's next superstar after a breakout freshman season. At 18 years old, Ross led the Clemson Tigers in receiving yards despite playing alongside older teammates Tee Higgins, Amari Rodgers and Hunter Renfrow who were future pros. He was PFF's second-highest-graded WR in his first season (91.2).
The 6-foot-4 and 205-pound wideout followed up with an impressive sophomore campaign, leading the team in receptions (66) as Trevor Lawrence's most heavily targeted receiver.
Ross was well on his way to being a locked-and-loaded Round 1 selection for the 2021 NFL Draft, but a rare condition affecting his neck and spine forced him to miss the entire 2020 season.
He came back in 2021 to show that he was fully healthy, but an anemic Clemson offense that ranked 87th in PFF's grading torpedoed his numbers. Only 64% of his targets were deemed catchable, which ranked in the 28th percentile.
He's an underrated route runner at his size, but not a contested-catch fiend. Reminds me a lot of Corey Davis because Ross is not particularly explosive.
The injury concerns made Ross go undrafted, but he landed in the best situation with Kansas City.
The floor is rock bottom, but Ross' experience playing special teams does give me some hope that he can stick to the bottom of the depth chart in KC. The talent is so apparent that I wouldn't be totally shocked if he makes some noise - health withstanding.

But good health did no bestow Ross, as he was placed on IR by the Chiefs, thus ending his 2022 campaign.

Justyn Ross moved to injured reserve

Undrafted rookie WR Justyn Ross was placed on injured reserve by the Kansas City Chiefs, effectively ending his rookie season.

Fantasy Impact

Ross was a favorite by many in the draft community, and health permitting, looked like a potential steal for the Chiefs as an undrafted rookie. However, injuries derailed the talented Ross’ collegiate career. He went through foot surgery this offseason and was placed on the physically unable to perform list, but now he is on injured reserve as he continues to rehab his foot. With his rookie season over, low capital and a long list of injury history, Ross is a risky keeper in dynasty leagues despite his obvious talent.
