Bengals beat writer Paul Dehner gave his statistical prediction for WR Tyler Boyd:
Realistically, he won't top what Marvin Jones provided last year, but he could come close. And his role will only grow as your playoffs grow closer. I'm predicting in the 55-reception, 800-yard range with 5-7 touchdowns.
Boyd didn't test well at the combine, but that doesn't necessarily matter all that much when it comes to the receiver position. College market share is more important, and Boyd fared very well in that regard. With Brandon LaFell's injury woes, it appears that Boyd is going to start opposite A.J. Green and has a capable quarterback throwing him the ball. Throw in some uncertainty at the tight end position and it's a recipe for a good rookie year.
