Boyle was not targeted over his 21 offensive snaps Sunday against the Steelers. Boyle's offensive usage has been up-and-down throughout the year, and it bottomed out Sunday. He was not targeted and played a season-low in snaps. Meanwhile, rookies Mark Andrews and Hayden Hurst both saw more playing time than Boyle, and fellow veteran Maxx Williams was a healthy scratch, suggesting that Baltimore may be turning to its rookie tandem full time moving forward. Boyle and the Ravens are on a bye Week 10 before returning to action Nov. 18 against the Bengals.
Boyle caught one of two targets for eight yards against the Saints on Sunday. The tight ends combined for just five targets, which marked a season low. Boyle accounted for two of them, tying him with rookie Hayden Hurst. Although Boyle currently leads the Ravens' tight ends in target share at eight percent, Hurst is starting to get more involved in the game plan and Mark Andrews is arguably the most polished pass catcher of the bunch, so Boyle's ceiling as a fantasy contributor is capped.
Boyle caught two of four targets for seven yards during Sunday's 21-0 win over Tennessee. Boyle has now been held to 10 yards or fewer in three of his last four games and has yet to score in his career. He might top the depth chart, but he doesn't offer much value as a fantasy option, even though the Ravens face the Saints' 30th-ranked pass defense Sunday, giving up 313 yards per game.
Boyle caught one of two targets for 10 yards against the Browns. Boyle's inconsistent target volume swung back to two after he drew five targets in the win over the Steelers in Week 4. He converted those targets into just one catch for 10 yards, marking the third time he's been held under 30 yards this season. Boyle is up to 10 catches on 18 targets (55 percent catch rate) and still does not have a touchdown in his NFL career.
Boyle caught three of five targets for 36 yards Sunday against the Steelers. Boyle tied with Maxx Williams for the lead in targets among Baltimore tight ends Sunday, but he wasn't as efficient as his counterpart. Boyle leads all Baltimore tight ends in targets on the season with 16, but Williams and Mark Andrews are close behind with 12 and 13, respectively. Rookie Hayden Hurst (foot) could debut this week against the Browns, making Boyle's target projection all the murkier.
