Tyler Boyd Fantasy Football News 2019

The Bengals have signed WR Tyler Boyd to a 4-year, $43 million extension, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Boyd is now signed through the 2023 campaign, and this new deal lands him just inside the top 20 highest-paid WRs. Coming off a breakout 76-1,028-7 line and 15th-place PPR finish, Boyd is locked in as Cincinnati's #2 WR and is a value at his current WR29 ADP.

The Bengals have officially named Zac Taylor their HC. The marriage has been set for about a month, but the announcement had to wait until the Rams' season was over. Taylor spent the past 2 years working under Sean McVay, but it's unclear exactly how big a hand he had in the scheme or game-planning. Taylor has just 5 games of experience as an NFL OC, all with Miami back in 2015. The Fins averaged 17 points in those 5 contests. Taylor was the University of Cincinnati's OC in 2016, "leading" the Bearcats to a 106th-place finish in total offense.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (knee) is out for Sunday’s finale against the Steelers. John Ross, Cody Core and Alex Erickson will again serve as Cincinnati’s top 3 WRs. None can be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. He hasn’t yet been placed on IR, so there’s evidently a chance he plays in the finale. Boyd’s absence this weekend leaves John Ross, Cody Core and Alex Erickson as Cincinnati’s top 3 WRs. Ross is the best fantasy bet but is no better than a WR4 flier.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He hasn't been placed on IR, so there's evidently a chance he's able to play this week or next. But fantasy owners shouldn't bank on having him in Week 16 lineups.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd has been diagnosed with a "low-grade" MCL sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He could miss time, and with only two weeks left in the season, that could be it for 2018," Rapoport adds. Boyd's absence would leave John Ross and Cody Core as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Raiders with a right knee injury. He hauled in 4 balls for 38 yards and a score before exiting. We'll update Boyd's status when we learn more.

Bengals WR A.J. Green is set to undergo season-ending surgery to repair torn ligaments in his toe, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Green is expected to be sidelined for 3-4 months, so he should be back by springtime. He'll end up missing 7 games this season, bringing him to 13 total over the past 3 seasons. Durability is a concern moving forward for the 30-year-old. Tyler Boyd and John Ross will close out the 2018 campaign as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs.

As expected, Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is out for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He was working off to the side of Friday's practice, so a Week 12 return looks possible. Tyler Boyd and John Ross will again serve as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs vs. a stingy Baltimore defense. Consider Boyd a low-end WR2 and Ross just a fantasy flier.

Update: The Bengals listed Green as doubtful. He won't play, but it's another sign that he could return next week.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) remained sidelined on Thursday. The team has yet to rule him out, but he's a long shot to play against the Ravens this weekend. That'll again leave Tyler Boyd and John Ross as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs.

Bengals WR A.J. Green will avoid surgery on his injured toe, according to multiple reports. He's expected to miss at least 2 games, however, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. WR Tyler Boyd has already drawn 22.3% of Cincinnati targets on the season and will be an even stronger weekly volume bet for as long as Green's out -- especially this week against the favored Saints and their weak secondary. Green's absence also adds target upside to the Cincinnati backfield and TE C.J. Uzomah. WR John Ross returned to practice Monday after missing Week 8 with a groin injury. We'll see if he's ready to play against New Orleans. Alex Erickson and Cody Core sit next on the WR depth chart. Cincinnati also promoted rookie WR Auden Tate from the practice squad Monday.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and is expected to be out "a few weeks," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Last year's 2nd-round pick has just 6 catches this season. He's well off the redraft radar -- and his dynasty value is fading.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd injured his right knee in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Bills and was quickly ruled out for the rest of the day. That suggests a serious injury. We should learn more later today.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd is facing "several" drug charges in relation to a July car crash, according to WTAE Pittsburgh's Beau Berman. Cops reportedly found marijuana and an opened bottle of liquor in the car. We'll see where the legal charges go, but Boyd is likely looking at a suspension from the league. He's been off the fantasy radar this year, anyway, with just 4 catches on 7 targets through 4 weeks.

Bengals HC Marvis Lewis said Friday that WR Tyler Boyd was a healthy scratch for Week 2. That's contrary to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport's report that Boyd had a tight hamstring. At least for this week, Boyd was behind A.J. Green, Brandon LaFell, John Ross and Alex Erickson on the depth chart. He's obviously off the redraft radar for now.
