2019 Fantasy Outlook
A second-round pick in 2016, Boyd did nothing during his first two seasons in the league to suggest a Year 3 breakout. But he emerged Week 2 with a 6-91-1 line, followed it up Week 3 with 6-132-1, Week 4 with 11-100-0 and never looked back. And while Bengals' top wideout A.J. Green missed seven games last year, his first missed game was Week 9, well after Boyd had established himself as Andy Dalton's other top target. In other words, a healthy Green wouldn't be a major negative for Boyd in 2019. At 6-2, 203, Boyd has good size but below-average speed (4.58 40). He's a polished route runner and effective on intermediate routes - 21 catches of 20-plus yards (7th) on only 108 targets (T-23rd) - but not much of a downfield threat (only one catch of 40-plus). Boyd averaged a robust 9.5 YPT (8th) thanks to a 70 percent catch rate. He isn't much of a red-zone presence - only 10 targets there all year, and three from inside the 10, and that was with Green and tight end Tyler Eifert missing significant time. Boyd returns as the Bengals' clear No. 2 wideout, though he'll serve as the team's top option early in the season while Green recovers from an ankle injury that will force him to miss at least a couple of games. Boyd, who missed the season's final two games with a sprained right MCL, was completely recovered for the offseason program and signed to a four-year, $43 million extension before the start of training camp.

December 8, 2019
Boyd caught five of six targets for 75 yards during Sunday's 27-19 loss to the Browns.
ANALYSIS
Boyd led the team in catches and receiving yards while finishing behind only Alex Erickson in targets. He recorded a long gain of 21 yards and has now surpassed 60 receiving yards in four of his last six games. Boyd is on pace for his second career 1,000-yard season and will look to inch closer to the milestone next Sunday against the Patriots.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2016
Boyd is one of the top five wide receivers in NFL history at least according only to the perspective of a Bills fan on December 31, 2017, as his 49-yard touchdown reception against the Ravens put the Bills into the playoffs. Alas, that one catch accounted for nearly 22 percent of Boyd's receiving yards for the entire season and one of his two touchdowns. Boyd missed six games last year and significant parts of others, occasionally getting benched as a coaches' decision, while nursing a knee injury on other occasions. This is a big year for the 2016 second-round pick -- if he doesn't make significant strides, the Bengals will almost certainly have to look to replace him in the 2019 draft.
Boyd, who was selected 55th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, caught at least one pass in all 16 games during his rookie campaign but produced deflated fantasy value as he found the end zone just once. He still provided exceptional consistency as the Bengals' No. 3 receiver, however, finishing the season with 54 receptions for 603 yards and one score on 81 targets. There was a real chance that Boyd would have a clear path to the No. 2 receiver spot behind A.J. Green heading into 2017, but the team elected to re-sign Brandon LaFell before drafting speedster John Ross with the ninth overall pick in this year's draft. Ross is dealing with an offseason shoulder injury, however, so it may take some time for the rookie to become accustomed to the physicality of NFL defensive backs. Tight end Tyler Eifert will also vulture plenty of targets, so quarterback Andy Dalton will have a multitude of mouths to feed in the Bengals' aerial attack.
The 55th overall pick in this year's draft, Boyd landed in an ideal spot. With Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu both gone, Boyd only has to beat out 29-year-old Brandon LaFell for the starting role opposite A.J. Green. Even if he doesn't, both should see plenty of looks while Green and tight end Tyler Eifert absorb the defense's attention. At 6-2, 200, Boyd has decent size, but he's not especially fast or athletic (4.58 40.) He put up big numbers in college (254-3,361-21) and is a polished route runner for a rookie, but is unlikely to be a downfield weapon or go-to option in the red zone.
