Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
I like Boyd a lot this week. He caught 7-of-8 targets against the Browns back in Week 2, and he turned those receptions into 72 yards and a score. His short-range targets make him a better option in PPR formats than in standard, but he's a safe bet to hit value, especially with Joe Mixon out of the lineup. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Boyd hasn't produced as much as we've expected the past couple of weeks, but he's still a fine option to plug into your lineup as a high-end WR3 with upside.Gage wasn't heavily targeted last week, but with the Falcons offense back to being a dynamic unit, Gage is an intriguing deep league FLEX option this week. The Lions are surrendering plenty of fantasy points to opposing slot wideouts and Gage could be a sneaky play.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Some will say that Boyd is a boring WR3 that is fine but this is your opportunity to buy him before they realize he's the only consistent option in this offense. While Green and Higgins battle for more targets on the perimeter, Boyd will reap the benefits. He's seen at least eight targets in four of the last five games and is going into a great matchup against a Browns defense that allowed him 7/72/1 on eight targets back in Week 2. Receivers have seen a massive 140 targets against the Browns, which ranks as the second-highest total right behind the Seahawks. That amounts to 23.3 targets per game, which is more than enough, even when you have three wide receivers getting consistent targets like the Bengals do. The Browns were tired of watching Tavierre Thomas getting burned, so they've shifted to Kevin Johnson, a cornerback who's on his third team in three years. Throughout his five-plus years in the league, he's allowed a 65.3 percent catch-rate, 11.7 yards per reception, and a touchdown every 14.4 targets in coverage. With that being said, he did do a good job limiting JuJu Smith-Schuster last week while Chase Claypool and James Washington did work. Still, Ben Roethlisberger threw the ball just 22 times in that game, so there wasn't really a test. Boyd should remain in lineups as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 this week.I mentioned last week that if/when Jones came back to the lineup, it would help everyone involved in the Falcons offense. While Gage finished with just four targets last week, they amounted to four catches for 65 yards. He hasn't seen more than five targets since back in Week 2, which is worrisome when you're playing him for a floor and not necessarily a ceiling. It certainly helps that the Lions opponents have targeted their wide receivers 65.3 percent of the time, which is the second-highest mark in the league. It also helps to know that the Lions have been crushed by slot-heavy receivers. Here are the ones they've played through five games: Keelan Cole 6/143/0, Emmanuel Sanders 6/93/0, Andy Isabella/Larry Fitzgerald 5/47/2, Allen Lazard 3/45/0, and Anthony Miller 4/76/1. It's clearly a weakness between Darryl Roberts and Justin Coleman. Gage should be able to offer a WR4/5-type floor in this game.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Boyd has not scored a touchdown since Week 2 and has been pretty quiet the last 2 weeks. He is a low-upside WR3 against the Browns, the last team he scored a touchdown against.
