Boyd put on a show last week and he should be viewed as a solid low-end WR2 in this matchup with upside. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I hope you took my advice and bought low on Boyd, who I view as the No. 1 receiver in this offense. His current 16-game pace is 139 targets, 110 receptions, 1,182 yards, and five touchdowns. That would've been enough to be the No. 7 wide receiver in PPR formats last year. This matchup against the Titans is great for the Bengals wide receiver trio, as 63.7 percent of the passes their opponents have thrown have been directed at wide receivers, which is the third-highest mark in the league. It also helps to know that they've allowed the second-fewest yards per reception to wide receivers, as that seems to highlight Boyd's role over the middle of the field, while both Green and Higgins have been targeted further down the field (both have average depth of targets of 13.5-plus yards) while Boyd has averaged just 8.8 air yards per target. The Titans have used a combination of Chris Jackson and Kristian Fulton (who was injured in Week 7) to defend the slot, and they've combined to allow 24-of-30 passing for 238 yards and two touchdowns. Keep Boyd in lineups as a stable WR2.Is Graham suddenly sharing the work with Cole Kmet and Demetrius Harris? He saw a respectable six targets last week but knowing Kmet and Harris combined for five themselves is worrisome. Looking at the routes, we shouldn't be too concerned, as Graham has run 59 routes the last two weeks, while Kmet has run 20, and Harris has run 15 of them. We have another revenge game narrative as Graham will be going against his former team. He's only played them once since his departure, totaling three catches for 34 yards. This year, it's been a good time to attack the Saints with tight ends, as teams have chosen to target their tight ends 27.6 percent of the time, which is the highest percentage in the league. Production has followed, as 24.8 percent of the production they've allowed to running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends has gone to the tight end position. They have already allowed five different tight ends to finish as top-10 options against them, with the only one who didn't was Ian Thomas, who saw one target. All in all, they've allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to tight ends, and Graham is seeing a respectable 15.1 percent target share. He can be considered a low-end TE1 this week, who can't be trusted as more than that with Foles' play as of late.

The Titans are 29th against fantasy wide receivers, Boyd should be a solid WR2 with upside this week.
