NFL Analyst is Bullish on Bengals Wide Receiver Tyler Boyd This Season

The 26-year-old should be entering his prime.
Publish date:

CINCINNATI — The Bengals are expecting to have an explosive wide receiver room this season. 

A year after adding Tee Higgins in the draft, they selected Ja'Marr Chase with the fifth overall pick in April. Throw in a two-time 1,000-yard receiver like Tyler Boyd and Cincinnati's offense should be dangerous.

Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky believes Boyd is going to take a huge step forward this season. 

"By the end of the season @boutdat_23 (Tyler Boyd) will be well known as one of the leagues elite SLOT WR’s," Orlovsky tweeted. "Think he has the chance to be every bit as good as (Chris) Godwin (who’s fantastic)."

That's high praise for the Bengals wide receiver, considering Chris Godwin will likely command top dollar in free agency next offseason. 

Boyd was on pace for 110 receptions, 1,136 yards and five touchdowns before Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 11 last season. 

It would've be his third-straight 1,000-yard campaign. He finished with 79 receptions for 841 yards and four scores. Boyd missed nearly two entire games due to a concussion late in the season, which ended his chances of accomplishing that feat.

It's good to see Orlovsky praise Boyd. He may fly under the radar, but there's no reason why he shouldn't lead the Bengals in receptions this season.
