Who Dey notes: Bengals' John Ross done, playoffs or bust
Who Dey notes: Bengals' John Ross done, playoffs or bust /

18. John Ross IV, WR

Ross was a massive disappointment last season but looks ready for his Year 2 breakout. He flashed his potential against Buffalo, breaking ankles en route to a 57 yard touchdown. Ross has generational speed, which allows him to stretch the field even if he doesn’t have the ball. Ross will still have to work on his consistency, but if he’s on the field, he will make an impact. Ross’ big plays and vertical threats will be a key component of this Bengals offense.

17. Tyler Boyd, WR

It wouldn’t be fair to put Boyd behind Ross, simply because Boyd will play more than Ross this season. Boyd will be the Bengals’ WR2 this season, looking to become a versatile inside and out weapon. Although Ross, Josh Malone, and Alex Erickson will see the field plenty, Boyd will be a more consistent target for Andy Dalton. Boyd lacks the dynamism of some of these other players, but his route running and precision more than make up for that.

16. Kevin Huber, P

The special teams guys are nearly impossible to rank, but Huber holds a special place in Bengals history. This season, Huber will break just about every major franchise punting record. That’s not necessarily notable as it relates to the 2018 season, but Huber has been one of the NFL’s best punters over the last decade. Punter doesn’t carry a lot of marginal value, but Huber is very good at flipping the field and creating advantageous starting points for the defense.
