Tyler Boyd Joins Titans Improved Wide Receiver Room

The Tennessee Titans are signing veteran free-agent wide receiver Tyler Boyd to a one-year deal worth up to $4.5 million, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. The former Cincinnati Bengal visited Tennessee last week and will now reunite with his former offensive coordinator and new Titans head coach Brian Callahan. While Boyd's fantasy value with Tennessee is likely capped by DeAndre Hopkins and Calvin Ridley, this is a promising addition for quarterback Will Levis. The Titans are signaling a shift toward a more pass-happy approach following the departure of Derrick Henry and the moves the franchise has made this offseason. 2022 first-round pick Treylon Burks is now the odd man out, and there's a chance he could be traded after two disappointing seasons to begin his career. The 29-year-old Boyd has hauled in 437 passes for 5,172 yards and 28 receiving touchdowns over his last six seasons and is viewed as one of the better slot receivers in the NFL.

Tyler Boyd To Meet With Chargers, Titans

Free-agent wide receiver Tyler Boyd was in Los Angeles this week to meet with the Los Angeles Chargers and is also scheduled to meet with the Tennessee Titans later this week, according to a source. The market should be heating up for Boyd, who had 513 catches for 6,000 yards in his eight seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. The 29-year-old wideout fell out of favor in fantasy circles as the No. 3 behind Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins in recent seasons, though, but perhaps he'll resurface with a change of scenery. His best chance to do so would probably be with the Bolts after they traded Keenan Allen and lost Mike Williams to free agency this offseason, although LA is also transitioning to more of a run-first offense under new head coach Jim Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

Tyler Boyd To Pittsburgh Reportedly Unlikely

According to Mark Kaboly of The Athletic, free agent wide receiver Tyler Boyd doesn't appear to be heading to the Steelers. "From what I have been told, Boyd was extremely interested in Pittsburgh at the beginning of the free-agency process," wrote Kaboly. "But the offer wasn't something he was comfortable with." It's only April, so it is possible both sides could revisit things after the NFL Draft. However, Boyd should have more than a few teams willing to sign him, with recent reports suggesting that the Chiefs, Chargers, Dolphins, Lions, and 49ers have expressed interest in bringing him in. With that said, the 2016 No. 55 overall pick is coming off a down year, amassing 67 catches for 667 yards and two touchdowns in 17 games. Yet, Boyd should still command attention from fantasy managers heading into the 2024-25 campaign, although his outlook is contingent on where he lands during the offseason.

Chiefs, Jets In The Mix For Tyler Boyd

The Athletic's Mark Kaboly writes that the biggest hurdle in free-agent wide receiver Tyler Boyd joining the Pittsburgh Steelers are the Kansas City Chiefs and the New York Jets. The Jets are considered a dark horse as they look to give quarterback Aaron Rodgers another receiving target. The 29-year-old veteran slot receiver has taken a back seat to both Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins in recent seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, but Boyd did have back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in Cincy in 2018 and 2019 and could see his fantasy stock be revived with a new club in 2024. The most intriguing landing spot would of course be with the Super Bowl-champion Chiefs, where he'd be the No. 3 target behind Travis Kelce and Rashee Rice.

Steelers, Tyler Boyd Have Mutual Interest

The Pittsburgh Steelers and free-agent wide receiver Tyler Boyd have mutual interest and have had dialogue about him returning to play in his hometown. No deal is imminent between the two sides, but there is more than just smoke here. Pittsburgh could use another receiver after trading Diontae Johnson to the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday and George Pickens the only experienced wideout on their current roster. The 29-year-old Boyd is from Western Pennsylvania and played his college ball at Pitt. The former second-round pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2016 had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in Cincy in 2018 and 2019 but was relegated to third-string duties in recent years with the additions of Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins. If Boyd lands with the Steelers, he'd be working with quarterback Russell Wilson in 2024.

Bengals Expected To Let Tyler Boyd Walk

Many around the NFL think that the Cincinnati Bengals will let veteran slot wide receiver Tyler Boyd walk in free agency this offseason. In addition, running back Joe Mixon ($5.8 million salary cap savings) and defensive tackle BJ Hill ($7.5 million) are potential cap casualties, even though Mixon had 1,034 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 2023. Boyd, 29, disappointed last year with 67 catches on 98 targets for 667 yards and only two touchdowns in 17 games (13 starts) despite Tee Higgins missing considerable time with injuries. It didn't help that quarterback Joe Burrow's (wrist) season was ended early due to injury as well. It makes sense for both Cincy and Boyd to end their relationship in 2024. Boyd won't be very attractive in fantasy entering his age-30 campaign, but joining a new team that will give him a bigger role on offense could make him somewhat of a sleeper.

Tyler Boyd Could Have Sights Set On Pittsburgh

Impending free agent wide receiver Tyler Boyd will draw plenty of interest from several teams throughout the offseason. Although there's a chance the wideout will return to Cincinnati, he didn't rule out one day suiting up for his hometown Steelers. Boyd also conveyed his fondness for head coach Mike Tomlin, with the wideout describing him as "one of the realest dudes in the sport's business." But with just a few weeks removed from the end of the 2023-24 campaign, it's far too early to speculate how this scenario will play out. However, a change of scenery could help Boyd get back to the 1,000-yard receiving conversation. At any rate, the 29-year-old, who also played college ball at Pitt, would make a welcome addition to any team, especially after a relatively successful tenure with the Bengals.

Tyler Boyd Disappears In Blowout Win

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd wrapped up a very mediocre 2023 campaign in the Week 18 regular season finale with a one-catch, four-yard performance in the 31-14 blowout win over a Cleveland Browns team that was resting most of their starters on both sides of the ball. Boyd will head into free agency in March after posting 67 receptions for 667 yards and only two touchdowns on 98 targets over 17 games in 2023. Fantasy managers weren't really expecting Boyd to be all that productive with Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins in front of him on the depth chart. However, Higgins ended up missing five games with various injuries, and Boyd didn't exactly take advantage of more opportunities. It also didn't help that Joe Burrow (wrist) played in just 10 games. The 29-year-old Boyd will have an opportunity to test the open market in March, and he could rebound with a change of scenery after spending his first eight years in Cincinnati.

Tyler Boyd May Play Final Game As A Bengal On Sunday

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd may play in his final game with the organization on Sunday versus the Browns. The 2016 second-round pick has had a potent career in Cincinnati, including 1,000-yard seasons in 2018 and 2019. Unfortunately, he's had one of the worst campaigns of his career in 2023-24, catching 66 passes for 663 yards and two touchdowns. While there's a chance he re-signs with the Bengals in the offseason, he has at least one more opportunity for a productive outing on Sunday. That said, fantasy managers should at least consider him for their starting lineups, especially if Tee Higgins (hamstring) doesn't suit up. At the same time, Boyd warrants DFS consideration.

Tyler Boyd Has Just Two Catches Versus The Chiefs

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had just two catches for 29 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. The veteran wideout had another hideous fantasy showing in Week 17. However, the rest of the Bengals offense had issues getting anything going, so Boyd can be forgiven. At any rate, with Cincinnati out of playoff contention, Boyd may not play in Week 18 versus the Browns. There's also a chance his days as a Bengal are over. But the 29-year-old had some quality seasons over the years, and depending on where he ends up moving ahead, he could reestablish himself as a viable fantasy asset.

Tyler Boyd Not A Safe Option On Sunday

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd hasn't had a quality season. But with Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) sidelined in Week 16 versus the Steelers, Boyd had a chance to be more productive. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case, with the wideout catching five passes for 59 yards. Without question, fantasy managers were hoping for more. With this in mind, the 29-year-old can't be trusted versus a sufficient Chiefs defense on Sunday, even if Chase misses another game.

Tyler Boyd Has Five Grabs In Week 16

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught five of seven targets for 59 yards during the Week 16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. With Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) out of the lineup, Tee Higgins led the way on the receiving end, finishing with five receptions for 140 yards and a touchdown. While Boyd couldn't find the end zone, he had one of his best showings of the 2023-24 campaign. Nonetheless, the veteran is still hard to trust from a fantasy standpoint. But if Chase remains out in Week 17 versus the Kansas City Chiefs, Boyd should enter the flex conversation.

Tyler Boyd Hard To Trust In Week 16

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd hasn't had a memorable year. The veteran has just 59 receptions for 575 yards. Even worse, he's scored only twice. By now, most fantasy managers haven't included Boyd in the starting lineup. While his stock is a bit higher heading into the Week 16 meeting with the Steelers with Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) out of the lineup, he's still hard to trust. On the other hand, Boyd is at least a flex option for those willing to take a risk.

Tyler Boyd Has Another Underwhelming Performance

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had two grabs (five targets) for 53 yards in Saturday's win over the Minnesota Vikings. As expected, Boyd had another uneventful fantasy performance. But his yards total was still among the highest of the 2023-24 campaign. At any rate, with Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) uncertain for the Week 16 battle with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Boyd may work his way into flex consideration, although he'd still be a risky fantasy option in any format.

Tyler Boyd Not An Ideal Fantasy Option In Week 15

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (foot/ankle) practiced in a limited capacity on Tuesday and Wednesday. But he logged a full session on Thursday, meaning he'll be on the field on Saturday against the Vikings. Unfortunately, his availability won't mean much, especially since he hasn't played the best this year. In all fairness, the Bengals offense hasn't looked great, either. However, Boyd is hard to trust, so fantasy managers should strongly consider keeping him out of the lineup in Week 15.

Tyler Boyd Logs Second Straight Limited Practice

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (ankle, foot) logged his second straight limited practice on Wednesday as his team prepares to take on the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday. Boyd appears on track to take the field on Saturday but his participation in Thursday's practice will be worth monitoring. Fellow wideout Ja'Marr Chase (ankle) was also limited with an ankle, leaving Tee Higgins as the lone healthy starting receiver in Cincy at the moment. Trenton Irwin has also shown the ability to produce when the Bengals have been down a starting wide receiver earlier in the season.

Tyler Boyd Limited On Tuesday

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (ankle, foot) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's estimated practice report. Boyd was questionable to play in the Week 14 win over the Indianapolis Colts but managed to play and caught two passes for only 23 yards while playing just over half of the offensive snaps. Barring a setback later this week, the 29-year-old pass-catcher should be fine to play on Saturday against the Minnesota Vikings. Boyd is a low-upside WR4/flex in fantasy lineups and is even less attractive now that Tee Higgins is back from his hamstring injury. In the three games with quarterback Jake Browning running Cincy's offense, Boyd has done very little, catching 10 of his 15 targets for 83 yards and no touchdowns.8uy7u

Tyler Boyd Playing Against Colts

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (ankle) is officially active and will play in Week 14's contest on Sunday against the visiting Indianapolis Colts. Boyd had a mid-week setback when he suffered an ankle injury in the team's first practice of the week on Wednesday, but it wasn't serious enough to keep him sidelined this weekend. The 29-year-old caught five of seven targets for 37 yards in the Week 13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Tee Higgins' first game back from his hamstring injury. With Higgins' role likely to grow as he settles back in as the No. 2 behind Ja'Marr Chase, Boyd will be a volatile WR4/flex in deeper leagues. Quarterback Jake Browning looked fantastic in the win over the Jaguars, but Boyd is going to have a tough time maintaining fantasy relevance as long as both Chase and Higgins are healthy.

Tyler Boyd Questionable To Play Sunday

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (ankle), who popped up on the Week 14 injury report on Thursday with an ankle injury, was limited in practice on Friday and is questionable to play on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. However, head coach Zac Taylor said he feels good about Boyd playing this weekend, according to ESPN's Ben Baby. Boyd was able to get a good amount of repetitions in at practice on Friday. In Monday's upset win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in quarterback Jake Browning's second start, Boyd had five catches on seven targets for 37 yards. Browning was amazing in that game and could continue to have success throwing the ball, but Higgins being back from injury makes Boyd less intriguing as a deep-league flex option with Joe Burrow (wrist) done for the year.

Tyler Boyd Gets Added To Injury Report

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (ankle) was able to get through a limited practice session on Thursday. Boyd wasn't on the injury report on Wednesday, but appears to have injured his ankle at some point. The veteran wideout has been quiet recently with 11 receptions for 82 yards over his last three games. The expectation is that Charlie Jones would see more work if Boyd can't play this weekend. However, neither of them have much fantasy value heading into the Week 14 versus the Indianapolis Colts.
