Player Outlook

Byrd will have an opportunity to carve out a role as the Falcons undergo construction at the wide receiver position, but he is best left undrafted.

Player News
  • The Falcons and Byrd agreed to a one-year contract Friday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Atlanta has lost Calvin Ridley to a season-long suspension and Russell Gage to the Buccaneers in free agency, leaving the team short of capable bodies at wide receiver. Olamide Zaccheaus is the most notable holdover, but he has just 54 catches and 90 targets in 38 games on his career ledger. Meanwhile, Byrd has averaged 12.3 YPC and 8.0 YPT on his 161 targets over the past three seasons. As the WR group stands at the moment, Byrd and Zaccheaus serve as the top two players at the position for new starting quarterback Marcus Mariota.

  • Byrd caught five passes for 47 yards in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 26 receptions for 329 yards and a touchdown. Once he saw increased usage starting in Week 12, Byrd showed that he can post modest production when given the opportunity. However, going into his age-29 season, it seems likely that he'll continue to serve as a rotational player, and he'll be a depth option for fantasy managers in deeper leagues. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

  • Byrd caught a 23-yard pass in the Bears' 29-3 win over the Giants on Sunday. Byrd has caught a single pass in each of the last two games, which coincided with the return of Allen Robinson in Week 16. Although Byrd had four solid weeks of production while Robinson was out, Byrd's role is likely set to remain minor in Week 18 against the Vikings.

  • Byrd caught one pass for 11 yards in the Bears' 25-24 win over the Seahawks on Sunday. Byrd actually won the game for the Bears by catching a two-point conversion in heavy traffic with less than a minute remaining in the contest. Otherwise, he was fourth on the team with three targets, and with Marquise Goodwin (foot) having returned to the lineup, Byrd broke a trend that saw him average five targets over the last four weeks. It's likely his role in the offense remains minor in Week 17 against the Giants.

  • Byrd caught five passes for 62 yards in the Bears' 17-9 loss to the Vikings on Monday. Byrd did the bulk of his damage on the Bears' first fourth-quarter drive when he caught three passes, and he finished third on the team with six targets. Despite posting at least 36 yards in each of his last four games, he'll likely need Allen Robinson (COVID-19) and Marquise Goodwin (foot) to continue missing time in order to be a factor for the duration of the fantasy playoffs.
