View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Boyd’s 4.2 receptions per game last season fell more than 1.0 short of each of his past 3 annual averages.
  • The primary issue was a dip to 16.4% target share over his 20 games (including the playoffs). In 18 shared games with Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins, Boyd garnered just 15% target share. Higgins drew 21.7% and Chase 23.4% in those contests.
  • Boyd’s yards per catch and yards per target each climbed to their highest levels since 2018. His average depth of target, however, fell to its lowest level since 2017, according to Pro Football Focus. Boyd made up for that with the 2nd most yards after catch per reception of his career.
  • The veteran trailed Chase and Higgins significantly in end-zone targets. His 4 tied for just 62nd in the league, trailing players such as Zach Paschal, Olamide Zaccheaus, Jalen Guyton and Mack Hollins. Higgins and Chase each ranked among the position’s top 17 in that category, with 10 and 12, respectively.
  • Boyd ranked just 40th among WRs in PPR points per game last season.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Boyd remains a fine player, but he’s now clearly the 3rd-best wideout on his own team. And he must share the field with 2 young guys who look like they could lead most WR corps around the league. Boyd’s target-share dip is a problem, because he needs volume. Joe Burrow looks like he’ll be an efficient thrower going forward, which will help Boyd’s reception and yardage totals. But he’ll need an injury to Chase or Higgins to make him an attractive starting option for 3-WR formats.

Joe Burrow, QB CIN

12:27pm EST 1/5/22

Burrow won't play Week 18

Bengals QB Joe Burrow told reporters that he won't play in Sunday's regular-season finale. He said it's to "rest up," but it's also worth remembering that Burrow tweaked his right knee at the end of last week's win over the Chiefs. Cincinnati has a 1st-round home playoff game locked up and would need the Titans to lose to the Texans and the Chiefs to lose to the Broncos to get the #1 seed. RB Joe Mixon (COVID) is already out for Week 18, and we're not expecting WRs Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd to play much, if at all, vs. Cleveland. QB Brandon Allen will get the start.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (shoulder) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. We still don't have a timetable for Higgins' return. Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd will again operate as Cincinnati's clear top 2 WRs in tomorrow's plus matchup.

View all Tee Higgins Shark Bites »

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Steelers. Auden Tate figures step in as Cincinnati’s #3 WR but would be a desperation fantasy play. Higgins’ absence frees up a bunch of targets for WRs Ja’Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd.

View all Tee Higgins Shark Bites »

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Bengals WR Tee Higgins (shoulder) is not expected to play vs. the Steelers today. Higgins is listed as doubtful, so no surprise there. Auden Tate is the favorite to move into Cincinnati's 3-WR sets but isn't a viable fantasy play. WRs Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd should pick up extra targets with Higgins out.

View all Tee Higgins Shark Bites »

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game vs. the Steelers. HC Zac Taylor said Friday that he wants to wait to see how Higgins feels on Sunday before ruling him out -- but he’s obviously a long shot. Higgins’ absence would elevate WR Auden Tate to the #3 WR spot and free up a bunch of targets for WRs Ja’Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd.

Dynasty Write-up
Boyd remains a solid player but carries limited upside with Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins ahead of him in target distribution. The Bengals seem to have too much available cap space to make Boyd a cut consideration.
