Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After many panicked based on his Week 1 usage, Boyd reminded fantasy owners that he's still a very large part of this offense with his seven-catch, 72-yard, one-touchdown performance in Week 2. That was a smash spot, though, as he was playing against a backup slot cornerback. This week, it's going to be a lot different, as the Eagles went out and acquired one of the best slot cornerbacks in the game. Nickell Robey-Coleman has been a thorn in receivers' side, allowing just a 61.9 percent completion rate, which is low for a slot cornerback, and 6.04 yards per target in his coverage. To be fair, Boyd did play against him last year while he was on the Rams and posted a 6/65/0 line on nine targets, so it wasn't a complete waste. We're probably looking at a situation similar to Cooper Kupp last week, who wound up with five catches for 81 yards. This is not the plus matchup it was for wide receivers last year, so don't let anyone tell you that. Boyd should be considered a low-upside WR3 in this game.We've now gone over a span of 12 games where Fitzgerald has topped 56 yards just once and has caught two touchdowns over his last 15 games. He's a stable presence over the middle of the field and his team is implied for 30 points, so we should at least consider him. The Lions have Darryl Roberts covering the slot with Justin Coleman on IR, which isn't really much of a downgrade. He's been in the league for five years now and has never allowed a 100 QB Rating in his coverage over the course of a full season. He was targeted just one time by Aaron Rodgers last week and did allow 30 yards on it, but that was it. Against the Bears, he saw five targets and allowed just one catch for 22 yards. I wouldn't consider this a week to rely on Fitzgerald, though he may have a scoring opportunity with that high team total.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Boyd put together a solid outing for fantasy football last week against the Browns, but he should be viewed as nothing more than a high-end WR3 in this matchup. Burrow should be under duress all game long and the Eagles are a very stingy secondary when it comes to fantasy points allowed right now. Boyd still deserves to be in your starting lineup, but we need to temper our expectations for him in this matchup.Fitzgerald has been productive and incredibly efficient through two games, but he's simply not seeing enough volume to be relied on as anything more than a low-end WR4 for fantasy.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Boyd hasn't made many big plays this season, but he did have 7 receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown last week. Consider him a WR3 on the road against a suspect Eagles secondary.
