  Bengals | Tyler Boyd limited to just 26 yards    Sun Dec 15, 06:26 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd finished with three catches for 26 yards in Week 15 against the New England Patriots while totaling seven targets.

Footballguys view: Boyd has been running out of gas, but he'll still be worth a look as a WR3/Flex against the generous Miami defense next week.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd ended up with five receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown across 10 targets in Week 13 against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Boyd like the rest of the Bengals offense had his tide lifted by the return of Andy Dalton. He'll be a solid PPR WR3/Flex against the Browns next week.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd targeted eight times    Sun Nov 10, 04:31 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd finished with six receptions for 62 yards on eight targets in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Boyd showed he can at least be a safe PPR play with Ryan Finley. He could be an upside play against the Raiders next week and is building some momentum despite the benching of Andy Dalton.

  Bengals | Six catches for Tyler Boyd    Sun Oct 27, 05:52 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted six grabs for 65 yards on nine targets in Week 8 against the Los Angeles Rams in London.

Footballguys view: Boyd had a bounceback game after a long afternoon next week. He could actually be helped by AJ Green's impending return, because defenses won't be keying on him.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd targeted 14 times    Sun Oct 20, 06:04 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted five receptions for 55 yards on 14 targets in Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Boyd mustered a reasonable PPR line late, but is a low ceiling WR3/Flex going forward with the Bengals season going down the drain.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd limited to 10 yards    Sun Oct 13, 06:25 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd had three receptions for 10 yards on seven targets in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Boyd had his first dud of the year in what was a good matchup on paper. He may dodge Jalen Ramsey next week but as long as the Bengals line is in shambles, Boyd is feeling like a dicey WR3/Flex only suitable to play in PPR leagues.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd posts big stat line    Sun Oct 6, 04:50 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd pulled down 10 receptions for a season-high 123 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Boyd reeled in a deep score to make the game level in the fourth quarter, but the defense allowed the Cardinals get set up for the game winning field goal. He'll be a strong WR2 next week against Baltimore.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd excited for homecoming    Sat Sep 28, 01:05 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd is amped for the team's Week 4 Monday night game in his home state of Pennsylvania when the Bengals visit the Pittsburgh Steelers. 'I'm excited because I haven't played on that field the past two years, and for me to finally get out there and show the people where I'm from how good of a player I still am is going to mean a lot,' Boyd said. 'It's Monday night and no one wants to put nothing bad on TV, so I'm going to go out and play my tail off.'

Footballguys view: We'll see if Boyd can get into the end zone this week. He's been leading the team in targets but has yet to score a touchdown in 2019. Boyd should be in line for around 10 targets once again in Week 4. We see him as a WR2 with upside against the Steelers.

  Bengals | Eight grabs for Tyler Boyd    Sun Sep 8, 11:11 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd caught eight of his 11 targets for 60 yards in a 21-20 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Boyd was targeted quite a bit but Fantasy GMs wanted to see some catches that ended up in scores. With John Ross getting the touchdowns, there wasn't much for Boyd to get. He'll continue as the lead receiver for the Bengals with A.J. Green out, and Boyd should get some more work close to the end zone in the coming weeks.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd lands new deal    Tue Jul 23, 11:38 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd will sign a four-year, $43 million extension, according to league sources. The deal will keep him under contract through 2023.

Footballguys view: The Bengals wrap up Boyd as he was in the final year of his rookie contract. In 2018, Boyd missed two games but did break out with 76 catches for 1,028 yards, and seven touchdowns. We'll see if he can build on those numbers in 2019 under the guidance of new head coach Zac Taylor (and with A.J. Green back at full strength). Fantasy GMs should look at Boyd as a WR3 with upside. He has a current ADP of WR28 (6.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd seeking big pay day    Thu May 23, 11:25 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd is seeking $10 million per season in his next contract.

Footballguys view: Boyd, a second-round pick out of PITT in the 2016 NFL draft, is in the final year of his rookie contract. He had a breakout season in 2018, finishing with 76 catches for 1,028 yards and seven receiving touchdowns in 14 games. The Bengals also have superstar A.J. Green in the final year of his contract. It will be interesting to see how all this shakes out and if they want to (or can?) keep both receivers happy.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd made big plays    Sat Jan 19, 09:46 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd's 21 receptions of 20-plus yards in 2018 were the seventh most in the NFL.

Footballguys view: Boyd did a lot of the work on those plays on his own. His air yards per target (9.52 yards) ranked only 60th in the NFL in 2018. However, his 407 yards after the catch ranked 30th in the league last season. Boyd should continue to be the deep threat for the Bengals opposite superstar WR A.J. Green.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd nearing full strength    Tue Jan 15, 02:59 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (knee) is about two weeks away from being fully recovered from his sprained medial collateral ligament.

Footballguys view: Good news for Boyd here. This means that he should be able to participate in OTAs later this spring. Boyd played in 14 games this year, finishing with a career high in catches (76), receiving yards (1,028) and receiving touchdowns (7). He's a low-end WR2 or WR3/flex play for Fantasy GMs going forward.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd has MCL sprain    Mon Dec 17, 11:01 AM

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (knee) suffered a low-grade sprain of his medial collateral ligament in Week 15.

Footballguys view: It's a sprain, and those type of injuries usually take a couple of weeks to heal. Boyd could be done for the season as the Bengals lose yet another starting wide receiver to injury. A second-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Boyd had a breakout season in 2018 with 76 catches, 1,028 receiving yards and seven receiving touchdowns so far. The Bengals could move forward with John Ross and Cody Core as their top two wideouts.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd could find end zone    Fri Dec 14, 10:06 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd faces the Oakland Raiders in Week 15, and the Raiders have allowed an NFL-high 31 receiving touchdowns this season.

Footballguys view: Even with Jeff Driskel at quarteback, Boyd could have a big day against the Raiders. We like him as a WR2 with WR1 upside in Week 15.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd interested in contract extension    Sat Dec 8, 11:44 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd said he would be open to signing a contract extension during the offseason, as opposed to waiting to test the free agency waters after his rookie deal expires following the 2019 season.

Footballguys view: The Bengals have made a lot of prudent moves extending their own before free agency, so this would match their frugal way of doing business. AJ Green is a free agent in 2020, so Boyd could be the #1 again in two years if he stays in Cincinnati.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd just misses triple digits    Sun Dec 2, 06:05 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted six receptions for 97 yards on eight targets in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Boyd is set up to be a reliable play down the stretch with AJ Green likely sidelined. He's been one of the few bright spots for the Bengals offense lately.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd posts 85 yards, score    Sun Nov 25, 06:48 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted seven grabs for 85 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Boyd had a big reception on a quasi-hail mary that was nullified by penalty or he would have had an even bigger day. He may see some of Chris Harris against the Broncos next week, but showed he's still a strong WR3/Flex play even if the backup quarterback is in.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd finishes with 71 yards    Sun Nov 18, 05:54 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd caught four passes for 71 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11.

Footballguys view: Boyd wasn't a total loss today, but he isn't going to put up a ceiling game against the Ravens on the road without AJ Green on the field. He'll remain a low ceiling WR3/Flex as long as Green is out.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd registered three receptions for a team-best 65 yards on four targets in the Week 10 loss against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Boyd had a few nice gains, but it's clear that he's not going to be a true #1 in this offense without AJ Green. He'll be a low ceiling WR3/Flex against the Ravens next week.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd scores pair of TDs    Sun Oct 14, 06:11 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd racked up seven grabs for 62 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Boyd was on fire going into Week 5, but slowed down against the Dolphins. The Steelers defense lost him twice in the red zone to account for his third big game in six weeks. He'll be a must play against the Chiefs next week.

  Bengals | Four catches for Tyler Boyd    Sun Oct 7, 05:51 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd caught four passes for 44 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 5.

Footballguys view: Boyd's hot streak came to a halt despite having a great matchup against the lesser Dolphins corners this week. He's got a good matchup against Pittsburgh next week and probably deserves another WR3/Flex look in Week 6.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd hits century mark    Sun Sep 30, 05:23 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted 11 receptions for 100 yards on 15 targets in Week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons while totaling 15 targets.

Footballguys view: Boyd got an uptick in targets with Tyler Eifert exiting this one early. He is doing a lot of damage on short routes with defenses having to contend with AJ Green and John Ross outside. He'll be a solid PPR WR2 against the Dolphins next week.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd steps up his game    Sun Sep 23, 05:12 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted six receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Boyd became the #1 when AJ Green went out and he put up a WR1 stat line. He has broken out in his third year, and is worth a start next week in start three wide receiver leagues against the suspect Falcons defense.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd unsung hero in Week 3    Thu Sep 13, 11:36 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd landed six receptions for 91 yards and a touchdown Thursday, Sept. 13, against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: There was a lot of hype around John Ross and some optimism about the return of Tyler Eifert, but it was Boyd that filled the #2 receiver role in Week 2. He'll be a preferred waiver pickup going into a matchup at Carolina.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd in line to start?    Thu Aug 2, 10:24 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd could be in line to start opposite of WR A.J. Green after WR Brandon LaFell was released Thursday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Boyd now becomes an intriguing player who is going undrafted in early leagues. We don't know what to expect from this offense and Boyd is coming off a season where he went backwards following a nice rookie year. We don't think he's worth having on a redraft roster just yet, but flag him for consideration as we move through preseason.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd may move around    Sat May 26, 12:51 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd likely will be the slot receiver for the Bengals this season but could also see some time as an outside receiver.

Footballguys view: Boyd played in 10 games last year and snared 22 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns. Slowed by an MCL injury, Boyd should be able to post better numbers in 2018. He's not going to light up the box score, but the Bengals are looking for players not named A.J. Green to produce in the passing game.
