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.
