News: 2 days agoBoyd secured five of seven targets for 37 yards in the Bengals' 34-31 overtime win over the Jaguars on Monday night. He also rushed once for five yards.
Spin: Boyd finished third in receptions and receiving yards on the night, playing his trademark short-area role while returning to his customary No. 3 receiver duties thanks to Tee Higgins' availability after a three-game absence. Boyd's catch total was his second highest since Week 6, but he'll remain in a relatively low-upside role during a Week 14 home battle against the Colts.
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.
