News: 6 hours agoBoyd (ankle) brought in two of three targets for 23 yards in the Bengals' 34-14 win over the Colts on Sunday.
Spin: Boyd had a questionable tag coming in after apparently sustaining an ankle injury late in the practice week, but the veteran was able to fill his usual slot role. However, Boyd continues to offer only middling fantasy production as long as top receivers Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins are healthy, as he's now recorded 37 yards or fewer in four straight games going into a Week 15 home matchup against the Vikings on Saturday afternoon.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Boyd has settled in as one of the league's most reliable slot receivers over the last five seasons, but his fantasy production has taken a big hit since Tee Higgins arrived in 2020. Boyd has finished between 36th (2020) and 45th (2022) in fantasy PPG during the last three seasons and has cleared five TDs once in his career (seven in 2018). Last season, Boyd averaged 4.8 targets per game (13% share) in 11 full games with Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase and 5.7 per game (15% share) when one or both were injured. The 28-year-old lacks standalone value, but he'd be in the flex discussion in the Bengals' high-scoring, pass-heavy offense if Chase or Higgins were to miss time.
