Bengals QB Joe Burrow has established chemistry with WR Tyler Boyd, according to Mitch Stacy of the Associated Press. Stacy also mentioned the developing chemistry between Burrow and rookie WR Tee Higgins and the slow start for WR A.J. Green.
Burrow has looked like a rookie QB at times, but the connection he has with Tyler Boyd is impossible to miss. The two connected for 10 catches on 13 targets in Week 3, and Boyd has 18 catches over the past two games. Boyd is the WR1 in Cincinnati and will continue to be peppered with targets.
Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni said that the offense will keep featuring TE Mo Alie-Cox despite the return of Jack Doyle and Trey Burton on his way back. "He's made too many plays the last few weeks," Sirianni said.
Cox has balled out the last two weeks, but actions speak louder than words. It was easy to give Cox majority of the looks in Week 3 while Doyle could block and get back to game speed after missing one game, but getting three tight ends looks plus the plethora of other offensive options...near impossible. Cox's value is capped unless it clear he will be their primary pass-catching tight end.
The 49ers cannot catch a break on the injury front. McKinnon played well in his first extended action in over two years, but Jeff Wilson Jr. outproduced him. McKinnon would get a fair share of touches if he plays Sunday against the Eagles, but it would not be surprising to see him sit a week to keep his bruised ribs from getting worse. Jeff Wilson Jr. would get the heavy workload if McKinnon could not play.
