Boyd turned nine targets into seven catches for 62 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 28-21 loss to Pittsburgh.
Boyd opened the scoring with a two-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter and added a 14-yard touchdown catch 19 seconds before halftime. He's in the midst of a breakout season with 37 catches for 455 yards and four touchdowns through six weeks. Plenty of fantasy lineups will have use for Boyd when he faces the Titans in Week 7.
Boyd caught four of seven targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 27-17 win over Miami.
Boyd was due to come back down to earth sometime after racking up 323 yards and two touchdowns over the previous three games, but Cincinnati's No. 2 wide receiver remains a viable fantasy option most weeks. The upcoming Week 6 tilt against a porous Pittsburgh secondary is certainly no exception.
Boyd turned 15 targets into 11 catches for 100 yards in Sunday's 37-36 win over Atlanta.
No other Bengal saw more than eight targets, including A.J. Green, who scored the go-ahead touchdown in the final seconds. While Green is still the bigger red-zone threat, Boyd has established plenty of value for himself with 323 yards and two touchdowns over the past three weeks. He'll be in the flex conversation at minimum against the Dolphins in Week 5.
Boyd was on the field for 48 snaps Sunday, 12 more than teammate John Ross, who scored on a short pass. Boyd's upside is capped by the presence of A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert in addition to Ross. It'll be difficult for him to have much more volume when everyone is healthy with the Bengals.
Boyd will slide into the slot whenever the Bengals go three wide, but the implication for now is that he'll be out there instead of Ross when they only use two wide receivers. That said, this is just the initial depth chart, and lots can change through the preseason and even the beginning of the regular season.
