Tyler Boyd Remains a Target Vacuum, Scores Twice Against Rival Steelers

Tyler Boyd caught 7-of-9 targets for 62 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals’ 28-21, Week 6 loss to the Steelers. His nine looks were second on the team to A.J. Green’s dozen. Boyd was the recipient of both of Andy Dalton’s touchdowns, from two and 14 yards out, and he had to make a diving catch on the two-yarder. He made a number of difficult grabs in this one, on a day where Dalton was off the mark. Boyd has been a steady WR2 for weeks and will stay that way next week against the pathetic Chiefs defense.

Boyd has continued to shine as the WR2 in Cincinnati’s offense this year. The injuries to the tight end group (Tyler Eifert/Tyler Kroft), and lack of progress from John Ross has really forced Boyd into a bigger role for the team. His red zone usage has been very promising to the point where he’s only a point and a half behind superstar AJ Green. Green drew a matchup with Joe Haden primarily on Sunday, leaving Boyd to work the rest of the struggling Steelers secondary. We love his matchup next week against the Chiefs, and owners have to be salivating after watching Tom Brady and the Patriots pick them apart on Sunday night.
