Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Ends season on disappointing note
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd recorded one reception on three targets for one yard in Week 17 against the Ravens. He added one rush for 11 yards.

Boyd was weighed down by the Bengals' lack of offensive firepower, as Brandon Allen completed only six passes in the entire game. After racking up 69 receptions for 710 yards across the first ten contests of the season with Joe Burrow (knee) under center, Boyd managed only seven receptions for 116 yards across the final six weeks due to missed games from a concussion and inconsistent quarterback play. Boyd is in the midst of a four-year contract and should be a top playmaker for the Bengals in 2021.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Cleared for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (concussion) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Ravens after practicing fully Friday.

Tee Higgins (hamstring) will also enter the weekend without a designation, setting the stage for the Bengals to have both of their top wideouts available. Boyd, who sat out the team's Week 16 win over the Texans, heads into the season finale with a PPR-friendly 78-840-4 line through 14 games.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: On track for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (concussion) is expected to play Sunday against the Ravens, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The 26-year-old sat out the Week 16 win over the Texans and was limited at practice the past couple of days while making his way through the concussion protocol, but he should be good to go for the season finale. It's unclear if Boyd will avoid an injury designation for the Week 17 contest altogether, but he's expected to avoid the inactive list ahead of the 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Another limited session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (concussion) was limited at practice Thursday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

As was fellow receiver Tee Higgins (hamstring), which sets the stage for Friday's practice to determine whether each of the duo approach Sunday's game against the Ravens with injury designations or cleared to play. If one or both end up out or limited this weekend, Alex Erickson would be in line for added work Week 17.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (concussion) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Head coach Zac Taylor confirmed Wednesday that Boyd remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, leaving the wideout's status up in the air for Sunday's game against the Ravens, according to Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer. If Boyd manages to upgrade to full activity in practice Friday and gains clearance from an independent neurologist, he'll likely step back into a starting role at receiver in the season finale.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (concussion) is participating in Wednesday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Boyd didn't practice in any capacity before being ruled out for last weekend's win over the Texans, so if he's back to handling even limited reps at practice, it represents a step in the right direction. He'll need full clearance from the five-step concussion protocol in order to suit up Week 17 against the Ravens.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site

With Boyd, who suffered a concussion this past Monday against the Steelers, sidelined, look for Alex Erickson to see added Week 16 snaps behind the team's top healthy wide receivers Tee Higgins and A.J. Green.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Misses another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (concussion) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Boyd, who suffered a concussion in Monday's win over the Steelers, will presumably need to practice in some capacity Friday in order to gain clearance for this Sunday's contest against the Texans. If Boyd is out this weekend, Alex Erickson would be in line for added Week 16 snaps behind Tee Higgins and A.J. Green.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Boyd remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, clouding his status for Sunday's game against the Texans. If Boyd is unable to gain clearance for that contest, Alex Erickson would be in line for added wideout snaps behind Tee Higgins and A.J. Green.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Out with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (concussion) will not return to Monday's game against the Steelers after suffering a concussion, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Boyd suffered the concussion after attempting to make a leaping grab early in the game. He had not recorded a catch before sustaining the injury. In his absence, look for Alex Erickson and Mike Thomas to see an increase in snaps behind Tee Higgins and A.J. Green.

December 21, 2020 11:20 PM
Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd is being evaluated for a concussion and considered questionable to return to Monday's game against the Steelers, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Boyd landed awkwardly after attempting to make a a leaping catch and hit his head on the turf. He subsequently headed to the locker room to be looked at. The 26-year-old didn't record a catch prior to exiting. Alex Erickson and Mike Thomas could potentially see some more snaps behind Tee Higgins and A.J. Green should he ultimately not return.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Relatively quiet game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd had five catches for 43 yards on nine targets in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

At least this result was better than two weeks ago against the Giants, but the drop in quality in quarterbacks from Joe Burrow to Brandon Allen or Ryan Finley has been devastating for the Bengals' top wideouts. It's not likely to get much better in Week 15 against the Steelers.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Ejected from Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd was ejected from Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

Late in the second half, Boyd and Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard got into a scuffle, and both players were disqualified. Boyd caught a 72-yard touchdown pass before exiting the game. He's not expected to be suspended for Sunday's actions.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Totals 15 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd caught three of six targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Giants.

Boyd led the team in targets but struggled to connect with Brandon Allen as his longest gain went for just nine yards. This was a rather disheartening development for Boyd's fantasy outlook after he piled up nine catches for 85 yards last week, indicating that Allen's lackluster play seems likely to hinder his star wideout moving forward. Of course, the team could opt to go in another direction under center next Sunday against the Dolphins, whose strong defensive unit should cause problems regardless.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Nine catches as Burrow goes down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd caught nine of 11 targets for 85 yards in Sunday's 20-9 loss to Washington.

Boyd was limited to one catch for 14 yards after Joe Burrow was carted off with what's expected to be a season-ending knee injury early in the third quarter. The slot receiver only needs 290 more receiving yards to break 1,000 for the third consecutive season, but what had been shaping up as a career-best season alongside Burrow could slow down significantly if backup Ryan Finley's inability to get on the same page with Boyd -- or any of Cincinnati's receivers, for that matter -- continues into Week 12 against the Giants and beyond.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Limited by Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd recorded six receptions on eight targets for 41 yards in Week 10 against the Steelers.

Boyd finished second on the team with eight targets but tallied his lowest yardage total since Week 1. While he converted a high percentage of his opportunities into receptions, he managed only catch of greater than 10 yards. Even with this disappointing performance, Boyd continues to showcase a very high floor as he has at least four receptions in every game this season. He'll draw another tough matchup in Week 11 against a Washington defense that has effectively limited opposing pass-catchers this season.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Scores for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd caught six of seven targets for 67 yards and a touchdown while adding nine yards on two carries during Sunday's 31-20 win over the Titans.

Boyd tied for second on the team in targets, receptions and receiving yards while catching a short touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. He has now scored in two consecutive games after finding the end zone just once through his first six contests and is just two TDs away from matching his total from all of last season. Moreover, the fifth-year wideout has seven targets or more in six of eight games this season and is well on pace to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards once again. Boyd will now take the bye week to recuperate before taking on a tough Steelers defense in Week 10.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Over 100 yards, TD in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd caught 11 of 13 targets for 101 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-34 loss to the Browns. He also threw a 16-yard pass.

Boyd just managed to break the plane for an 11-yard touchdown 15 seconds before halftime, and he's up to 48 catches through seven games this season. The standout slot receiver also put his versatility on display with a 16-yard pass to running back Giovani Bernard on a trick play. As the most consistent weapon for rookie quarterback Joe Burrow, who threw for over 400 yards in this one, Boyd should continue to play a major role in what's projected to be a high-scoring Week 8 affair against the Titans.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Totals 79 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd caught five of eight targets for 54 yards and carried once for an additional 25 yards during Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Colts.

Boyd finished tied for second on the team in targets but was limited mostly to short gains while Tee Higgins and A.J. Green did most of the downfield work. He added to his yardage output with an explosive rushing gain, but overall it was a less-than-stellar outing for the slot receiver. Boyd continues to receive his fair share of targets (eight or more in four of the last five), but he has now been held under 60 receiving yards three times on the season. He'll look to get back on track in a favorable matchup against the Browns next Sunday.

Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Quieted by Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd hauled in four of his six targets for 42 receiving yards during Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Ravens.

The 25-year-old wideout had been outstanding over his previous three outings heading into a tough matchup against Baltimore. Boyd had corralled at least seven passes in each of those three preceding games, boasting an average of 95.7 receiving yards per contest in appearances against the Browns, Eagles and Jaguars. In a showdown against Baltimore's Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters, who own a combined three All-Pro nods, Boyd was held to his second-lowest receiving output of 2020. Week 6 doesn't offer a much brighter outlook as the Bengals will go up against an Indianapolis pass defense that entered Sunday as the No. 1 unit in the NFL.
