Cincinnati Bengals Wide receiver Tyler Boyd
The Cincinnati Bengals have won a playoff game for the first time in 31 years thanks to their defense and the dynamic play of quarterback Joe Burrow. The second-year quarterback has a trio of young wideouts that have played great for him during the season in rookie Ja’Marr Chase, second-year Tee Higgins, and the veteran Tyler Boyd.
Of the three wideouts, it is possible that Boyd could be traded for and that would be an upgrade for the Dolphins. After the team’s failed experiment with Will Fuller, they will need a third wideout to make life easier for Tagovailoa.
Prior to Burrow’s appearance in Cincy, Boyd was the team’s leading wideout having put together back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2018 and 2019. Boyd was still able to surpass 800+ yards and have over 90 targets in the past two seasons, but it is likely his role will decrease with the Bengals.
With Chase becoming Burrows’s clear favorite wide receiver he should see more targets next season. The team is high scoring and will likely not want to move on from Boyd, but if he is put for trade over the offseason the Dolphins could benefit from his experience and skill.
