Our weekly look at the Fantasy players to watch in the NFL:
FANTASY PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Tyler Boyd, WR, Bengals: If the Bengals have any chance of keeping up with Drew Brees and the Saints, then they’re going to have to gain a ton of yards through the air. With A.J. Green out, Boyd is the likely beneficiary. He’s actually been almost as consistent as Green this season, with at least six catches or 62 yards in five of eight games. Unless John Ross suddenly becomes reliable, Boyd should rack up receptions this week.
Quarterback: Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers. Lately, Rivers has rolled over the Raiders, and considering their current state, it’s safe to expect another big performance out of him. No team in the NFL has allowed more net yards per attempt.
Running back: Duke Johnson, RB, Browns. Finally, Duke has been unleashed. … Or so we think. New Browns offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens seemed to know what we had last week, when Johnson had 10 touches of 84 yards and two touchdowns.
Wide receiver: Keenan Allen, WR, Chargers. Allen’s season is following the same trajectory it did a year ago, when he exploded down the stretch. Last week, he had his first 100-yard game since Week 1. This week, don’t be surprised if he scores for the first time since that 2018 debut.
Tight end: Jack Doyle, TE, Colts. Eric Ebron has put on a show for much of the season, but Doyle is the tight end that Andrew Luck trusts most. Upon his return, Ebron’s snap counts diminished significantly. This week, against a tough secondary, Doyle should be a safe outlet.
