Boyd assisted on Burnley’s lone goal during their 2-1 loss to Spurs on Saturday.

The assist was Boyd’s first of the season, but he’s now gone two straight games without taking a single shot. He also only had 27 total touches during the match, and while the Burnley attack is boosted by Danny Ings’ play, Boyd just doesn’t contribute enough in most fantasy formats despite his regular spot in the starting XI.

Boyd led Burnley with five shots in the 2-0 loss to QPR Saturday.

After scoring last week, Boyd came back and had another solid performance leading Burnley in shots this weekend. Boyd has been playing significantly better since Ings returned from injury and clearly the threat of Ings is opening things up for players like Boyd. With that said, Boyd and Burnley play one of the toughest defense in the Premier League next weekend when they host Southampton.

Keep an eye on Boyd and Burnley as their scoring problems are slowly coming out of its rut the more they're getting used to playing in the Premier League.

Boyd has signed a three-year contract to join Burnley. He leaves Hull City after making 53 appearances and will look to help Burnley fight to avoid relegation this season.

Boyd had played just nine minutes this season with Hull City and will look to get more playing time with Burnley. Despite the move, Body is expected to still have very minimal fantasy value.
