2018 Fantasy Outlook
Boyd is one of the top five wide receivers in NFL history at least according only to the perspective of a Bills fan on December 31, 2017, as his 49-yard touchdown reception against the Ravens put the Bills into the playoffs. Alas, that one catch accounted for nearly 22 percent of Boyd's receiving yards for the entire season and one of his two touchdowns. Boyd missed six games last year and significant parts of others, occasionally getting benched as a coaches' decision, while nursing a knee injury on other occasions. This is a big year for the 2016 second-round pick -- if he doesn't make significant strides, the Bengals will almost certainly have to look to replace him in the 2019 draft. Read Past Outlooks

Boyd caught three of six targets for a team-high 52 receiving yards during Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Chargers.
ANALYSIS
With A.J. Green (foot) battling midseason injuries and subsequently being placed on injured reserve, the common thought had Boyd accelerating from a mid-tier fantasy WR2 into a contender for low-end WR1 consideration. That hypothesis has been disproven to this point, as Boyd has averaged 68.3 receiving yards per game with Green inactive this season, compared to 79.7 yards per game when he is in the lineup (also averaging one fewer target per game when Green is out). Week 15 presents a reasonable opportunity for Boyd to get into the end zone for the seventh time this season, facing a Raiders defense that's allowed an NFL-high 31 passing touchdowns.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Boyd, who was selected 55th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, caught at least one pass in all 16 games during his rookie campaign but produced deflated fantasy value as he found the end zone just once. He still provided exceptional consistency as the Bengals' No. 3 receiver, however, finishing the season with 54 receptions for 603 yards and one score on 81 targets. There was a real chance that Boyd would have a clear path to the No. 2 receiver spot behind A.J. Green heading into 2017, but the team elected to re-sign Brandon LaFell before drafting speedster John Ross with the ninth overall pick in this year's draft. Ross is dealing with an offseason shoulder injury, however, so it may take some time for the rookie to become accustomed to the physicality of NFL defensive backs. Tight end Tyler Eifert will also vulture plenty of targets, so quarterback Andy Dalton will have a multitude of mouths to feed in the Bengals' aerial attack.
The 55th overall pick in this year's draft, Boyd landed in an ideal spot. With Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu both gone, Boyd only has to beat out 29-year-old Brandon LaFell for the starting role opposite A.J. Green. Even if he doesn't, both should see plenty of looks while Green and tight end Tyler Eifert absorb the defense's attention. At 6-2, 200, Boyd has decent size, but he's not especially fast or athletic (4.58 40.) He put up big numbers in college (254-3,361-21) and is a polished route runner for a rookie, but is unlikely to be a downfield weapon or go-to option in the red zone.
