Sit ‘Em – Tyler Boyd

I had to sit one Bengal, right? Well, allow me to tell you why Tyler Boyd is the (not) man this week. While Boyd only saw six targets, hauling in four for 36 yards and a touchdown, he played a very physical game. Boyd took several hard shots, and with only three days rest, and hopefully the return of Tee Higgins, this could be a good spot to fade Boyd in deference to the two more high-profile targets in Higgins and Chase.

Boyd was the emotional leader Sunday in Pittsburgh, and the energy expended on the field reflected such. Perhaps it is a reach, but it could be fair to think the emotional energy Boyd showed in the Pittsburgh defeat could lead to something of a letdown against the Jags.

Maybe that’s reading too much into the psychological aspect of the game, but it would be only human to have a letdown, right? Let’s just hope it isn’t an organizational letdown. For now, I’ll just say Boyd is a sit and hope for the best.

Boyd is currently going around 5200.00 in DFS. That’s too rich for my blood. Let Boyd sit this week.

Prediction: 4 Rec, 47 Yards, 0 TD

There you go! Like I said before I prefer to skip the Thursday game for fantasy, but if you insist on having fantasy action on the game, these are your best bets. As always, above all enjoy what’s shaping up to be a very interesting Thursday night!
