Bengals WR Tyler Boyd Dominates Again, Priority Waiver Wire Add

Third year Bengals WR Tyler Boyd has been flatout dominant for two straight weeks, most recently hauling in 6-of-7 targets for a career-high 132 yards and a score against the Panthers. This follows up a 6-of-9, 91 yard + TD effort in Week 2, and gives Boyd over 40 FPs in these past two weeks — trailing only fellow breakout Calvin Ridley and Adam Thielen during this span. Boyd appears locked into the No.2 spot of a rapidly rising passing attack, and gives vibes of an every-week WR3, particularly with AJ Green banged up.

Prior to this week’s contest, QB Andy Dalton heaped praise onto Boyd, calling him “so good” while praising his versatility and route-running: He understands running routes. He’s versatile. You can move him around. He’s had a lot of production in the slot and we’ve been able to move him around too.”

Boyd proved worthy of the hype and more on Sunday. All season, he’s been a near every down player while dominating the slot-share in 3-WR sets. He consistently finds the soft spots of the defense, makes tacklers miss after the catch, and has gained the Red Rifles trust. With the Bengals offense clicking in Year 2 under Bill Lazor, Boyd should be a reliable WR3 most weeks. Plus, if AJ Green‘s groin injury lingers, Boyd could be a high-end WR2 in a cake-walk date with Atlanta’s decimated defense. At only 17% owned, Boyd needs to be among Week 3’s highest priority Waiver Wire adds.
