Tyler Boyd Fades During Monday's Second Half

Tuesday, September 26, 1:09 AM

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught 5-of-9 targets for 39 yards in Monday's 19-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. The 28-year-old slot man saw a busy first half amidst Cincinnati's conservative, dink-and-dunk approach, bringing in four of his six targets for 29 yards. Boyd later pulled in a short 10-yard reception in the fourth quarter but was on the wrong end of a spectacular play later in the series made by Ahkello Witherspoon, who ripped a pass away from Boyd for a pick. Boyd has 17 targets across the past two games but may find himself as the odd man out more often than not this year. The veteran has strong contingency upside if Ja'Marr Chase or Tee Higgins were to ever miss time, but Boyd is going to need the Bengals offense to start clicking if he wants to return WR3 value in full-PPR leagues.

Alec Pierce Non-Existent In Season Opener

Sunday, September 10, 9:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Alec Pierce didn't see many opportunities during the team's season-opening loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The young wideout only caught one ball for five yards and was targeted three times in this contest. Pierce was fifth in the pecking order in terms of targets and he wasn't able to turn it into much either. He doesn't seem to be on the fantasy radar right now and managers should probably look elsewhere heading into Week 2 if wide receiver help is needed.
