Allen Lazard Out Sick Thursday, Randall Cobb Active

Thursday, December 28, 7:14 PM

New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard (illness) is inactive for the Week 17 game on Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns after coming into the game listed as questionable to play. As a result of Lazard being too ill to play, veteran Randall Cobb will be active for just the 10th time this season. He'll still be behind Garrett Wilson, Jason Brownlee and Xavier Gipson in the receiving pecking order and probably won't be on the field all that much on offense. The 33-year-old has only four catches on 16 targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in his first year in New York. Lazard has been even more of a bust for the Jets in his first year in 2023, catching 23 of his 49 targets for 311 yards and a touchdown in 14 games. He was expected to be a solid No. 2 next to Wilson, but it hasn't worked out that way.

Bengals Expected To Let Tyler Boyd Walk

Monday, February 19, 4:00 PM

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.
