Tyler Boyd Fantasy Football Outlook (2022)

By Andrew Erickson (FantasyPros), Sun, May 15th 2022, 6:38pm EDT

Tyler Boyd was a victim of circumstances more than anything else in 2021, with two alpha wide receivers in the Bengals offense leaving him nothing but scraps. The Bengals slot receiver commanded just a 15% target share and target rate per route run.

The target rate per route ranked dead-last among 73 qualifying players last season that commanded at least 100 targets.

It's clear that Boyd can't be viewed as much working as a clear ancillary piece of the Cincinnati passing attack. Tight end C.J. Uzomah's departure does open up the potential that Boyd could shoulder a larger target workload, but his upside remains extremely limited while Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins are healthy.
