Tyler Boyd was WR15 in PPR leagues last season, and he was one of the few to stay healthy on an injury plagued Bengals team. This offense has a lot of stable name value for fantasy, but health has been the biggest concern. Boyd has remained generally healthy over his first few seasons, and has enjoyed some opportunity because of the other injuries. Even if A.J. Green comes back healthy and plays a full 16 games, Boyd’s production shouldn’t take a hit. Even missing two games, Boyd posted a big line that has us excited for his future.

2018 Fantasy Recap


A 76-1028-7 line was on par with some of the top tiered wideouts for 2018. It was a somewhat surprising to see this ceiling emerge, but as a true WR2 in Cincinnati, maybe not so much. Boyd averaged 7.7 targets per game last season, and caught 76 balls. While he posted only three games over 100 yards, Boyd brought a pretty consistent line each week for fantasy. Even with Green playing the first half, the targets differential was less than 15. Using Green’s injury to hype Boyd’s 2018 is just flat out wrong, and the tweet below can suggest that. Seeing over 100 targets, he should be primed for another season of the same. While the touchdowns might be a bit lower, Boyd is looking like a solid mid-round pick.

Boyd’s projections have him taking a step backwards, and there is a few reasons why that could be. A shaky offensive line and Andy Dalton isn’t always ideal, but also the touchdowns coming down a notch too. Boyd is a solid WR3 choice, and it would solidify that need for any fantasy team. Boyd’s hype might fluctuate over the offseason, but sharper leagues will know his worth and draft accordingly. Don’t be discouraged if you see lower projections, as they should grow closer to draft season. Cincinnati’s offense was fantasy friendly when everyone was healthy, and took a small step backwards due to injuries. Dalton would be the key guy given Jeff Driskel would be next in line.


Draft & Auction Value

Tyler Boyd is being taken later in drafts than expected, and is a big value at the moment. He is also an auction value as well. The upside is for him to finish inside the top 15 again, which is completely doable. I think an accurate ranking would be between 17-22. Still excellent value for where he is being drafted. Overall we should be looking at the depth of wideouts this year with a comfort of possibly going another route early on. I would not be against using Boyd as a WR2 because you went with a tier one or two running back in the beginning of the draft. Keep Boyd on your radar.
