Boyd caught five of seven targets for 57 yards during Sunday's 33-23 win over the Browns. Boyd led the team in targets and caught all but two balls thrown his way, but the talented Cleveland secondary held him to 11.8 yards per grab. The Bengals didn't lean on the passing game much as they led for most of the game, which limited his output in the season finale. This modest output gives Boyd his second consecutive 1,000-yard season, which is rather impressive given the state of the team's quarterback play this season. With A.J. Green (ankle) likely to move on this offseason, Boyd should be the top receiving option once again in 2020, and he could benefit if the team acquires a quarterback via the draft or free agency.
Boyd (undisclosed) doesn't appear on the Bengals' Week 17 injury report, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Though the Bengals didn't actually practice Wednesday, the team posted an estimated practice participation report. That report didn't include Boyd, who exited the Bengals' Week 16 overtime loss to the Dolphins with an undisclosed issue with 23 seconds remaining in regulation. Before departing, Boyd still delivered for fantasy managers, hauling in nine of 15 targets for 128 yards and two scores. He'll look to close out his 2019 campaign on another high note Sunday against the Browns.
Boyd, who left the game late due to an injury, secured nine of 15 targets for 128 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' 38-35 overtime loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Boyd paced the Bengals in receptions, receiving yardage and targets for the day, even as he exited the game with an undisclosed injury with 23 seconds remaining in regulation. The 100-yard effort was his fourth of the season and left him just 13 yards short of a second consecutive 1,000-yard campaign. The fifth-year receiver also now has a career-high 85 grabs, as he's been the clear top option with A.J. Green (ankle) missing the entirety of the season and John Ross a good chunk of it with a shoulder issue. Boyd will look to put a fitting end to his breakout campaign at the expense of the Browns in Week 17.
Boyd caught three of seven targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 34-13 loss to the Patriots. Sunday snapped a nice little three-game run for Boyd during which he caught five passes per game, scored twice and averaged 80.7 total yards per contest. As the top receiver for a team that frequently plays from behind, Boyd is one of the few Bengals worth considering from a fantasy perspective. The Patriots possess one of the top pass defenses in the league, so Boyd can be forgiven for a bit of a clunker. Cincinnati plays a struggling Miami squad Week 16, making Boyd a solid-but-not-spectacular play.
Boyd caught five of six targets for 75 yards during Sunday's 27-19 loss to the Browns. 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.
