Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had just two catches for 13 yards during the win over Pittsburgh on Sunday. His performance against the Steelers wasn't surprising, especially considering his lackluster play throughout the year. At this point, it's safe for fantasy managers to cut ties with the 28-year-old, mainly since Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins are seemingly the preferred options for Joe Burrow. Joe Mixon's efficiency this season hasn't helped things either, so there's that as well.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd finished with only one catch for seven yards during the win over the Lions on Sunday. Although the decisive lead didn't help the veteran remain involved, his lack of statistical output in Week 6 only adds to what has been a disappointing season. He has only one game during the 2021-22 campaign with over 100 yards, and his single trip to the end zone is also concerning. Nonetheless, Boyd should have some more efficient outings up his sleeve moving forward. However, until he turns things around for his fantasy managers, it's best if he remains on the bench for the time being.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd finished with only four catches for 24 yards during the close loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Tee Higgins made his return after missing the previous two games with a shoulder issue, and Ja'Marr Chase received 10 targets from Joe Burrow, so Boyd took a back seat in this one. It was inevitable that this scenario was bound to happen. However, he still has fantasy value in all fantasy setups, although his outlook from week to week will be contingent on injuries and matchups. Nonetheless, Boyd has earned the right to be at least be considered a starting option moving forward, including ahead of the Week 6 contest against the winless Detroit Lions.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd filled some of the void caused by the absence of Tee Higgins (shoulder), finishing the Week 3 win over the Steelers with four catches for 36 yards and a touchdown. He was also the preferred target for Joe Burrow, leading the team with six targets. After a rough Week 1, the 27-year-old appears to be trending in the right direction. With the short turnaround before the Thursday Night Football matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, there's a greater chance Higgins won't be able to make it back in time. If he doesn't, Boyd may continue to see an uptick in attention from Burrow in Week 4.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd hauled in seven of his nine targets for 73 yards during the Week 2 loss to the Chicago Bears. While the veteran once again conceded touchdowns to the duo of Tee Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase, it was still a much more effective fantasy performance after he had three catches against Minnesota in Week 1. It was anticipated that the veteran would have a few rough outings during the 2021 campaign, primarily due to competition for looks from sophomore signal-caller Joe Burrow. Still, Boyd's performance on Sunday was more in line with what is expected from him moving ahead, and he will look to keep it going against the Steelers in Week 3.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd didn't have the most productive outing to begin the year, finishing the Week 1 overtime win over the Minnesota Vikings with just three catches for 32 yards. Although this performance was undoubtedly unwelcome for fantasy managers, the veteran should be fine moving ahead. However, with so many mouths to feed on the offensive end in Cincy, he will likely have a few more disappointing performances throughout the year. Nonetheless, he is still worth a start in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd recently landed on ESPN fantasy guru Matthew Berry's list of players he "loves" heading into the upcoming campaign. While many managers have soured on Boyd, primarily with the additions of Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins over the last few years, it's hard to dismiss a player who had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. However, he took a step backward last season, finishing with 841 yards and four touchdowns off 79 catches (110 targets), his lowest totals since 2017. Nonetheless, with Joe Burrow (knee) seemingly back at full-strength and opposing defenses expected to pay close attention to Joe Mixon, Chase, and Higgins, things could open up tremendously for Boyd in 2021.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd could be in line for a monster year, at least according to former NFL quarterback and current analyst Dan Orlovsky. The 27-year-old racked up back-to-back seasons with at least 1,000 receiving yards before falling short of that mark in 2020. However, with an enhanced offensive line and the addition of Ja'Marr Chase to help take away some pressure, Boyd may have plenty of room to operate out of the slot. The ceiling remains high for the former Pittsburgh Panther despite more competition for looks from Joe Burrow. Although he is expected to see a reduction in targets, in return, he could offset that by making more trips to the end zone.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd returned to the field for Week 17, but was held to just one reception for one yard during Sunday's loss to Baltimore. While Boyd also gained 11 yards on one carry, his final performance of an otherwise strong 2020 came out a clunker. Like many other Cincinnati receivers over the final stretch of the year, Boyd's production took a significant step back when Joe Burrow (knee) went down. Across 15 games, Boyd was able to rack up 79 catches for 841 yards and four scores. Having signed a significant contract extension last summer, Boyd figures to be an integral part of the Bengals' passing attack come Week 1 of '21.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (concussion) is active for Week 17 against the Ravens. It's a bit of a surprise as this is a meaningless game for the Bengals, but Boyd will slide back into the lineup. His numbers have been all over the place this season, but he should be a solid WR3 play in this one. His presence knocks Alex Erickson out of DFS consideration after his six-catch, 88-yard Week 16 effort.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd gets a tough matchup for his return to the field after missing last week. Boyd will face off with the Ravens' 14th-ranked pass defense that has allowed just 11 touchdowns to wideouts this year. The 26-year-old picked up 42 yards on six targets in his first meeting with the Ravens- though that was with Joe Burrow (knee) at quarterback. There's potential for some garbage time stats if the game gets out of hand, so Boyd should be able to put up WR3 numbers.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Texans. Boyd suffered a concussion on Monday night against the Steelers and couldn't get cleared from the league's protocols in order to play this Sunday. Houston's secondary is a great matchup for opposing passing games, but it'll still be hard to trust any of the Bengals pass-catchers given their quarterback situation between Brandon Allen and Ryan Finley. Explosive rookie Tee Higgins should be the team's top receiver and has some WR3 upside, but veteran A.J. Green is more of a risky WR4/5 for those with not many other options. Alex Erickson or Mike Thomas could be Cincy's No. 3 wideout against the Texans.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol, according to head coach Zac Taylor. Boyd left the team's Monday night win over the Steelers early with the head injury and didn't return to the contest. The 26-year-old is highly questionable to play in Week 16 on a short week against the Texans, and he'll have to be cleared from the protocol this week in order to have a shot. With either Ryan Finley or Brandon Allen under center, Boyd would be a low-ceiling WR4/flex even if he wasn't dealing with an injury. He simply can't be trusted with a fantasy title on the line this week. If he isn't cleared in time, rookie Tee Higgins, A.J. Green and Alex Erickson would have more opportunities in three-receiver sets.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (head) hit his head on the turf while trying to make a catch in the first quarter on Monday night against the Steelers and is questionable to return while going into the league's concussion protocol. It was Boyd's only target in the game before he left, so fantasy managers needing Boyd to put up some points in order to advance to their fantasy championship next weekend could be extremely disappointed if he does not return. A.J. Green, rookie Tee Higgins and Alex Erickson will primarily serve in three-receiver sets for the rest of the game if Boyd does not return. With a short week ahead of a Week 16 matchup with the Texans, Boyd will need to clear the concussion protocol later this week in order to be cleared to face Houston. He's been a shaky WR4/flex for fantasy managers ever since rookie quarterback Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending knee injury.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd was targeted nine times during the loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, finishing with five catches for 43 yards. With Brandon Allen spreading things out on the day, which resulted in A.J. Green and Tee Higgins combining for 15 targets, Boyd remained semi-relevant from a fantasy perspective. However, things may become more difficult for the 26-year-old against a rough, tough Steelers Defense in Week 15. Fantasy managers may want to look for alternatives unless there is no other option.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd is entering Week 14 with a lot of weight on his shoulders. With Tee Higgins (hamstring) potentially out of the lineup, along with the underwhelming recent play of A.J. Green and Giovani Bernard, the 26-year-old may have his number called often against the Cowboys. Boyd finished the Week 13 matchup against the Dolphins with only one catch, a massive 72-yard reception for a score. He was ejected after a physical altercation with Xavien Howard, but luckily for fantasy managers, he will play on Sunday. Keep him starting in all formats.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd has been ejected from Sunday's game against the Dolphins after a small scuffle with Dolphins defensive back Xavien Howard, who was also ejected. Boyd ends the game with just one reception, but that one went for a 72-yard touchdown. Cincinnati's offense will be in even more dire straits in the second half.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd is a WR3 this week against Miami. Boyd has seen at least seven targets in nine of 11 games but has been a bit inconsistent in terms of weekly yardage. It's worth noting Boyd has over 50 yards in seven of 11 games, so this makes him a solid start this week against a Dolphins squad that is middle-tier against fantasy wideouts.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd hauled in three of his six targets for a meager 15 yards during the loss to the Giants. With Branden Allen under center in place of the injured Joe Burrow (knee), the 26-year-old couldn't get anything going and had one of the worst performances of his career. Allen will remain the team's signal-caller in Week 13 against the Dolphins, so fantasy managers may want to think twice before inserting Boyd into their starting lineup, regardless of the format.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd should be the only pass-catcher in Cincy to not be too negatively impacted by the team's move to Brandon Allen at quarterback. Last year, Boyd managed to finish with 90 catches for 1,046 yards while playing with Andy Dalton and Ryan Finley at quarterback, so Boyd doesn't need Andy Dalton to produce. He's a solid WR2/3 play with a high floor this week against this Giants Defense.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had nine catches for 85 yards during the loss to Washington on Sunday. The 26-year-old came back to life in Week 11 after not doing much over his previous two games. With rookie signal-caller Joe Burrow (knee) potentially done for the year, Boyd could see his fantasy stock increase as he may get some extra attention from presumptive starter Ryan Finley moving ahead.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had six catches (eight targets) for 41 yards during the loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday. Once again, the former second-round pick failed to surpass the production of rookie wideout Tee Higgins, who had seven receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown. While the 25-year-old should remain starting in all fantasy formats, especially in Week 11 against a subpar Washington Football Team, his days as a consistent option beyond that may be coming to an end, primarily if he continues to take a back seat to Higgins.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd has a tough Week 10 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, though Boyd's role in this Cincy offense keeps him in the WR2 conversation, albeit with a lower floor than usual. Boyd has found the end zone in his team's past two games with 20 targets across those contests, giving him a solid baseline to work with. Considering he's had at least four receptions in every game this season, you should feel fine about Boyd in season-long leagues.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught six of his seven targets for 67 yards and a touchdown during the win over the Titans in Week 8. Sunday marked the former Pittsburgh Panther's eighth appearance with at least six looks from rookie Joe Burrow while also recording his second-straight contest with a score. With Burrow throwing the ball often during the 2020 campaign, the 25-year-old should continue to benefit immensely throughout the team's remaining eight matchups, beginning in Week 10 against the Steelers after the bye.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught 11 of his 13 targets to finish the Week 7 matchup against the Browns with 101 yards and a score. After fizzling out against the Colts last Sunday, the 25-year-old recorded one of his most convincing performances of the 2020 campaign. Boyd has now logged at least eight targets in five of Cincy's seven contests and should continue to benefit from the stellar play of rookie signal-caller Joe Burrow. However, things may get difficult for the former Pittsburgh Panther in Week 8 against the Titans, with Tennessee looking to rebound after suffering its first defeat of the year against the Steelers.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
