Draft note
by John Paulsen
Boyd finished with 90-1,046-5 on 148 targets in 2019, resulting in a No. 23 finish. Andy Dalton only played 13 games, and in those games, Boyd played at a 96-1,086-5.0 pace, which represent solid WR2 numbers. In 2018, he finished with 76-1,028-7 on 108 targets finishing No. 17. A.J. Green is theoretically back this season and Boyd’s 2018 splits with Green (6.1-80-0.56 on 8.2 targets per game) are encouraging, though much has changed in Cincinnati since 2018. The Bengals have a new offense and a new quarterback (Joe Burrow). Boyd is going off the board as a midrange WR3 and that seems about right.

CIN WR Tyler Boyd - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Tyler Boyd was excellent as the Bengals No. 1 receiver last season, replacing an injured A.J. Green. He was targeted 148 times, had 90 receptions for 1,046 career yards - all career highs. This all came with an average quarterback behind center. The Bengals bring in QB Joe Burrows to run the offense and even as a rookie could be a huge upgrade at the position. Cincy has a lot of offensive weapons that could help Burrows and make him successful which will trickle down to Boyd.

Fantasy Downside
The reason Boyd was the No. 1 receiver for Cincinnati was because A.J. Green was out the entire season with an injury. Green returns and although Boyd might be the top option, he will lose targets and catches to Green. Boyd's numbers last year were great, but more because of the volume than the substance. If you look at his production based on the number of targets he had, his numbers weren't at the same level as 2018 although fantasy doesn't care about that. It's just an indication that the numbers might not repeat themselves if the volume is not there.

2020 Bottom Line
With Green returning, Boyd will lose the targets therefore lower fantasy numbers. He is being drafted as a WR3 right now going in the seventh or eighth round with an ADP of 76. He still is a viable option as depth so expect to get about 82 catches for 971 yards and five touchdowns. The Bengals offense has the potential to do this if Burrow isn't a bust his rookie season.
