2019 Fantasy Outlook
A lower-body injury delayed the start of his season, but Boyd was a serviceable depth forward for the Capitals in 2018-19. The 177th overall pick in the 2011 draft managed five goals and 20 points in 53 games - despite averaging just 9:50 of ice time. The 25-year-old will have some competition in the bottom six but owns enough offensive skill that he shouldn't be out of the lineup for long stretches. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $1.6 million contract with the Capitals in July of 2018.
Designated for waivers

October 6, 2019
Boyd was placed on waivers by the Capitals on Sunday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Boyd served as a healthy scratch in three straight games. The Minnesota native's demotion comes as Washington tries to clear cap space in order to add Evgeny Kuznetsov to the roster. Assuming the 26-year-old clears, he will be assigned to AHL Hershey, but should be atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
After a productive career in the minors, Boyd is primed to challenge for a full-time role in the NHL. The 24-year-old center has shown plenty of offensive potential over the last four seasons with AHL Hershey, posting 53 goals, 112 assists and 165 points in 215 career AHL games while producing one assist in eight games with the Capitals in 2017-18. The sixth-round pick from the 2011 NHL Entry Draft has an excellent opportunity to earn a roster spot with the Capitals during training camp given the departure of Jay Beagle in free agency. However, consistent ice time could be difficult to come by given Washington's depth in the bottom six, and thus his fantasy value remains fairly limited unless he can move up the depth chart.
One of only four selections by the Capitals in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, the 24-year-old pivot has taken tremendous strides with his development in AHL Hershey, posting 16 goals and 63 points in 76 games for the Bears in 2016-17 after finishing with a 53-point campaign the season before. Held back somewhat by his size (5-foot-11, 185 pounds), the Minnesotan's consistency at the minor league level has opened the door to a full-time NHL roster spot. However, it will be some time before he can carve out a meaningful offensive role even if he can make the Opening Night roster so his fantasy value (although having some upside in dynasty formats) remains in limbo for 2017-18.
