Every offseason, the fantasy community tends to home in on a handful of players that they project to have exciting upcoming seasons. Last year, it was Chris Godwin. The hype was high based on coach-speak, situation, and talent, and he delivered in a big way. Sometimes the hype doesn’t pay off, and sometimes it does.

One player receiving a substantial amount of offseason hype is wide receiver Tyler Boyd of the Cincinnati Bengals. A consistent, safe wide receiver over the past two seasons, Boyd has garnered much attention since the end of the season. The Bengals have the first overall pick in the upcoming draft, and all eyes are on the potential franchise quarterback coming to Cincinnati.

The question then remains: is the hype for Boyd just that, or are there reasons for genuine optimism?

Career Overview

Boyd, a four-year veteran, broke out in a big way in his third season and has had back-to-back mid-WR2 seasons for the Bengals.

Averaging nearly 15 points per game over two years puts him in good company. He’s a great possession receiver and is more suited to PPR leagues as consistent touchdowns have been hard to come by. His Year 4 comps using the RotoViz Screener shed some positive light on the company he holds.
