Until Boyle finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.
Boyle and the Ravens have agreed to a restructure of his current contract, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Boyle's contract was reduced, which ultimately created cap space for the team. Primarily known for his blocking, Boyle had just one reception for two yards in five games during the 2021 season. He projects to back up Mark Andrews in 2022.
Boyle was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday. The tight end was placed on the COVID list Sunday, and missed the Ravens' season finale versus the Steelers. Boyle had a difficult year with injuries and only appeared in five games, catching just one pass for two yards.
Boyle remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's game against the Steelers, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Until Boyle clears the NFL's COVID protocols, Eric Tomlinson and Tony Poljan will be on hand as reserve tight ends behind starter Mark Andrews.
Boyle (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday. The 28-year-old will now be away from the team for the foreseeable future, likely causing him to miss Sunday's matchup with the Steelers. In Boyle's absence, Eric Tomlinson and Josh Oliver would both presumably step into larger roles at tight end behind starter Mark Andrews.
Boyle (knee) will play Sunday against the Packers, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Boyle has dealt with chronic knee issues all season, which has seen him log numerous limited practices and only suit up for two games this season. However, he feels well enough to take the field again Sunday against the Packers. He should be third on the Ravens' tight end positional depth chart behind Mark Andrews and Eric Tomlinson.
