Tyler Boyd Week 6 Outlook - Bengals at Colts

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Tue, Oct 13th 2020, 7:56am EDT

We knew last week's matchup was going to be a tough one for Boyd, who finished with just four catches for 42 yards against the Ravens. Don't panic, as it was likely the toughest matchup he'll have all year. The Colts defense has been good against wide receivers as a whole, but they haven't been untouchable. In fact, three of the top-four performances they've allowed to wide receivers this year have gone to those who play in the slot on a regular basis. We watched Keelan Cole finish with 5/47/1, Braxton Berrios 4/64/1, and Jarvis Landry 4/88/0 against them, so while the ceiling doesn't appear very high, they've struggled the most over the middle of the field. Even going back to last year, you'd see they struggled against the slot and allowed 8/123/1 to Keenan Allen, 7/72/1 to Dede Westbrook, and 7/91/0 to Chris Godwin, so it's not a fluke; it's the scheme. The six touchdowns the Colts have allowed to wide receivers ranks as the seventh-most, as teams have struggled to run the ball against them. You should be starting Boyd as a WR2 moving forward.
