News: 2 days agoBoyd had six catches Sunday against the Ravens, netting 52 yards on eight targets.
Spin: While it wasn't a tremendous fantasy outing, this is the sort of floor fantasy GMs are used to seeing from Boyd. That floor could drop away if he has Jake Browning throwing to him Monday night instead of Joe Burrow, however.
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.
