Will the Wide Receivers Show up?
Much like the first team offense struggles, that same factor pertains to the wide receivers. A.J. Green has been what we expect, but what about the players behind him? Highly anticipated speedster John Ross has only been targeted a few times, including an impressive two point conversion he made against the Cowboys. The same could be said for Tyler Boyd who has scored a touchdown on three catches so far, but also had a crucial fumble. Expect both to get significant touches and catches this Sunday.
At the bottom of the position depth chart, Auden Tate is finding himself fighting to make the cut in a crowded receiving group. After having that amazing touchdown grab to complete the comeback against the Bears, Tate was quiet in the Cowboys game only being thrown to once with no receptions. Tate is going to have to play like he has been in training camp. With Cody Core not practicing much this week due to unknown injuries, the pressure is on for Tate to make an impression.
