All-time receiving yards leaders in Cincinnati Bengals history
9. Tyler Boyd (5,333)
Bengals WR from 2016-Present
With a second-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Bengals selected Tyler Boyd out of Pittsburgh. He played well as a rookie with 603 yards but injuries kept him from being a major force in the offense in the 2017 season.
In 2018, however, Boyd showed that he was a major threat as a receiver. The Pittsburgh product had the first 1,000-yard season of his career with 1,028 yards and seven touchdowns and averaging 13.5 yards per catch.
Boyd followed that up with another 1,000-yard season during a two-win Bengals season. He was one of the few bright spots for the stripes that year and had a career-high 1,046 yards. His numbers went down in the following years due to the additions of Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase but make no mistake, Boyd is still a ferocious weapon to have.
When I first put this list together in the summer of 2022, I wrote:
"Assuming he remains healthy the 2022 season, Boyd should be able to find his way into the top 10 of this list. Fingers crossed that he can make that happen."- What I said about Boyd entering 2022
Boyd did just that after the 2022 season, vaulting himself from 11th to ninth all time in receiving yards. He had 762 yards and five touchdowns during his seventh NFL season. How much further up the list will he climb?
