2019 RTSports Outlook

Boyd had a breakout season, winning a starting job and posting career-best numbers across the board. He was even the No. 1 receiver many weeks because of an injury to A.J. Green. Boyd had his first 1,000-yard season, finishing 17th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. Boyd had three 100-yard games. He even missed the last two games of the season and still posted these big numbers. He had at least three receptions every game. Boyd will continue to start this year, serving as the second best option in this passing game. Boyd is a good route runner and has very good hands. He lacks a little elite speed but still runs pretty well for the position. His length makes him a solid deep threat.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Boyd might have a hard time keeping his pace of last year with Green back in the mix, but don't discount him for some good production once again. He should at least be a No. 3 fantasy receiver. He can get around 80 receptions for 1,100 yards and eight or so scores.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Tyler Boyd is being drafted in the eighth and ninth rounds, making him a great value. Boyd finished as WR15 last season and only played 14 games. Hes only going to know the offense more and be better acquainted with Andy Dalton. Many have his projections coming down because of a shaky offensive line and TD regression, but Id argue Boyd may benefit with some quick action routes. Hes a great slant receiver and with linebacker help often leaning towards A.J. Green, the middle will be open for Boyd. Dont draft him with the expectation of a huge season, however. Hes still the third option in this offense when fully healthy behind Green and Mixon. Hes a solid WR3 to start the season and a guy you wont hate to use as a WR2 in most weeks. If he slips into the ninth round, dont hesitate to pick him up.

Player Notes
Oct 13 6:33pm ET

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

Fantasy Spin: Boyd had a giant game last week, posting 10 grabs for a season-high 123 yards and a score, but this week was a season-low yardage total. That type of inconsistency is maddening for fantasy owners. He is a boom or bust fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the Jaguars.

From TheHuddle

Oct 13 5:40pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd finished with just 10 yards on three catches (seven targets) during the loss to the Ravens. After seeing 14 looks from quarterback Andy Dalton against the Cardinals in Week 5, the 24-year-old was held in check throughout this one. With A.J. Green (ankle) expected back for the Week 7 encounter with Jacksonville, his role moving forward is somewhat of a mystery at the moment. Keep an eye on his progress, but the window of opportunity to sell-high after his efficient outing against Arizona may have closed for good.

From RotoBaller

Oct 11 8:20am ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had his best performance of the season against the Cardinals by ending Week 5 with 10 receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown. In the absence of both A.J. Green (ankle) and John Ross (shoulder), Boyd continues to be a favorite option for quarterback Andy Dalton as evident by his 14 targets against Arizona. Expect the 24-year-old to continue to get looks and make some noise against the Ravens in Week 6 based on target volume alone.

From RotoBaller

Oct 8 1:00pm ET

Bengals' WR Tyler Boyd scored 28.30 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 5 loss against the Cardinals. Boyd caught 10 passes for 123 yards with one touchdown.

Oct 6 7:10pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd hauled in 10 receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown during the loss to the Cardinals. With A.J. Green (foot) and John Ross (shoulder) both out of the equation, Boyd was the clear-cut No. 1 option for quarterback Andy Dalton. The 24-year-old has gotten plenty of looks and will continue to do so until Green can return to the lineup at some point this season. Nonetheless, Boyd remains a must-start moving forward.

From RotoBaller

Oct 6 5:03pm ET

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.

Fantasy Spin: Boyd had his second double-digit catch performance and second 100-yard day, but this was his first visit to the end zone. He'll look to build on the momentum heading into Week 6 at Baltimore. He remains more of a WR3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 6 4:30pm ET

Bengals' WR Tyler Boyd had 10 receptions for 123 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's loss against the Cardinals.

Oct 3 4:50pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd will likely see an increase in looks from quarterback Andy Dalton against Arizona on Sunday. With the team dealing with a plethora of ailments on the offensive end, the 24-year-old could see north of 10 targets against a weak Cardinals Defense. Though Auden Tate and Tyler Eifert should also be involved on the receiving end in some capacity, expect Boyd to lead the way as long as the offensive line can hold it together. Keep him starting in Week 5.

From RotoBaller

Oct 1 12:33am ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted just three grabs for 33 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Spin: Boyd limped off late, but was able to return to the game. This was Boyd's worst statistical game of the season, as he had at least six grabs and 60 yards in each of his previous three. He remains a WR4 in most fantasy leagues in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.

From TheHuddle

Oct 1 12:00am ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught 3-of-6 targets for 33 yards in Week 4's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Boyd was surprisingly held in check despite the plus matchup, and fantasy owners have to be disappointed with the lack of involvement after Boyd saw 12, 10, and 11 targets in the previous three games. He's also sitting at zero touchdowns through four weeks. Boyd should still be viewed as a volume-based WR2 heading into Week 5 where a matchup with the Patrick Peterson-less Arizona Cardinals awaits.

From RotoBaller

Sep 28 8:30pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd is third in the NFL with 33 targets through the first three weeks of the season. John Ross will have a tough matchup against Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden, which means Andy Dalton may need to look Boyd's way a lot in Week 4. Boyd has a tough matchup himself against the Steelers, but slot cornerback Mike Hilton did struggle against Julian Edelman in Week 1, giving up 64 yards in that game while covering the slot. Boyd should see his usual 10-plus targets in this game as Dalton's favorite target and should be locked into your fantasy lineups as a borderline WR1.

From RotoBaller

Sep 28 1:13pm ET

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.'

Fantasy Spin: Boyd is off to the best three-game start of his career and leads the team in targets (33) and receptions (24) while ranking second in receiving yards. He's a solid WR 2 play this week vs. a Steelers secondary that has struggled so far.

From TheHuddle

Sep 22 9:23pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd caught six of his 11 targets for 67 yards in a 21-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 3.

Fantasy Spin: Boyd still hasn't found the end zone, but he has 24 catches through three games, logging 10-plus targets in all of them. His usage will likely dip a bit when A.J. Green is able to return, but Boyd should at least remain a high-end WR3 in PPR formats.

From TheHuddle

Sep 20 9:40am ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd has a tough matchup ahead in Week 3 against a solid Bills Defense. Despite taking a back seat to John Ross after everyone was expecting Boyd to be the leading man, he has still been productive, nonetheless. The 24-year-old remains one of quarterback Andy Dalton's favorite targets in 2019 despite the emergence of Ross and has racked up 18 receptions (22 targets) for 182 yards. Though he hasn't scored a touchdown yet this season, his ability to make plays while accumulating yards still makes him a must-start on Sunday.

From RotoBaller

Sep 16 1:03am ET

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd caught all 10 of his targets for 122 yards in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Spin: Although he did most of his damage on a 47-yard catch, it's hard to complain about a receiver catching everything thrown his way. Through two weeks, Boyd ranks second in the NFL with 18 catches - pending the game on Monday night. While his volume will take a slight hit when A.J. Green returns, it seems clear Boyd will remain a vital cog in this offense. He should be considered a high-floor WR2 again in Week 3, even in a difficult matchup versus the Buffalo Bills.

From TheHuddle

Sep 15 4:50pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd led all Bengals receivers in Week 2 with 10 targets. Boyd turned those 10 targets into 10 catches and 122 scoreless yards. Boyd ran tremendous routes throughout the game and looked explosive, serving as Dalton's favorite passing option in A.J. Green's absence. The Bengals will face off against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3, and Boyd should continue to be trusted as a high-end WR2, as he should avoid coverage from cornerback Tre'Davious White. Boyd has an 85.7% catch rate through his first two games.

From RotoBaller

Sep 15 4:30pm ET

Bengals' WR Tyler Boyd had 10 receptions for 122 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's loss against the 49ers.

Sep 14 6:00pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had the second-most targets (11) for the Bengals in Week 1, but he should lead the Bengals in that department this week. In Week 2, wide receiver John Ross should line up against San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman for roughly 50 percent of his routes. If quarterback Andy Dalton chooses to stay away from Sherman, it could mean more passes for Boyd. The Pittsburgh product should be able to exploit his matchup against 49ers cornerback K'Waun Williams, who has been dealing with a knee injury.

From RotoBaller

Sep 8 11:23pm ET

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.

Fantasy Spin: John Ross delivered the big plays, but Boyd was a steady part of the passing attack. He should continue to show a WR3 floor as long as A.J. Green is sidelined.

From TheHuddle

Sep 8 9:40pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd picked up where he left off in 2018 with a strong start to his 2019 campaign. In a game against Seattle that featured 51 pass attempts by quarterback Andy Dalton, Boyd had 11 targets, hauling in eight of them for 60 yards. Boyd was involved in the Bengals passing game from the start on Sunday and was a constant factor throughout. The 24 year-old receiver is clearly Andy Dalton's safety net and is a must-start moving forward.
