Bengals WR Tyler Boyd Dominates Again, Priority Waiver Wire Add

Tyler Boyd has ascended to the clear-cut No.2 option in this attack, and should be among Week 4's top Waiver Wire adds.

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.
