He's the only receiver who has playing time with Finley, and the results were somewhat of a mixed bag. Boyd finished with 6/62/0 on eight targets against the Ravens (tough matchup), 1/0/0 against the Raiders (eww), and 5/101/1 against the Steelers (tough matchup). So, while we're certainly downgrading from Burrow to Finley, Boyd may retain the most value as the safety valve over the middle of the field (we don't know much about Allen in this offense). Boyd also has a plus matchup in the slot with fourth-round rookie Darnay Holmes. He's seen 41 targets in coverage this year, allowing 33 receptions for 321 yards on them, though he hasn't allowed a touchdown yet. Surprisingly, the Giants have allowed just three wide receivers to top 74 yards against them this year, with two of them being Washington players (Terry McLaurin, Cam Sims). It needs to be noted that four of the top-six performances they've allowed to receviers have gone to those who are slot-heavy, which is what Boyd is. He's my favorite Bengals receiver in this game, but he's still in WR3 territory.

Tyler Boyd catches three passes

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught 3-of-6 targets for 15 yards in a 19-17 loss to the Giants in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Boyd and the rest of the Cincinnati offense struggled with Brandon Allen under center. The downgrade from Joe Burrow to Allen makes Boyd extremely difficult to trust in fantasy in Week 13 against the Dolphins.
