Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He only walked out of last week's game with two catches for 17 yards, but the encouraging sign for Ross was that he was an every-down player. He actually led all Bengals skill-position players in snaps. Zac Taylor also seemed to take it easy on Burrow in his first game, giving him a bunch of short throws, allowing him to ease into the NFL in a tough matchup. Knowing how often Burrow was under duress, it's no wonder we didn't see many deep passes. The Browns registered a sack on 6.9 percent of dropbacks last year and 7.1 percent in Week 1, so it's not likely he'll have a lot of time to look downfield in this game. The difference in this matchup is the cornerback play, though, as the Browns don't have near the cornerback or safety talent that the Chargers do. The downside is that their best cornerback, Denzel Ward, typically sticks at LCB, which is where Ross runs most of his routes. They moved him around, so it's not exclusive, and it's possible they decide to have Ward shadow A.J. Green. Ross is someone who should be owned in fantasy leagues, but he's still a boom-or-bust WR5 until we see Burrow and him connect. He's a one-play upside tournament play in DFS, though.
