Tyler Boyd, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

With Tee Higgins (hamstring) out and Ja'Marr Chase (back) less than 100 percent, Boyd had eight receptions for 117 yards (on a team-high 12 targets) against the Houston Texans in Week 10. It's easy to chalk up that boom performance to Higgins being out, but Boyd has at least five targets or a touchdown in every game since Week 2. He also has at least 8.6 full PPR points in all but one game over that span (at least 9.9 in five of the eight games).

The Bengals now have a short week before playing the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night to open Week 11. So Higgins' status will be a natural question, and it's fair to say Chase will not be fully recovered from a rough looking back injury in Week 9.

Boyd's ownership rates stretch beyond the general 50 percent or less availability, and Week 10 might go down as his best game of the season. But he should be rostered in far more fantasy leagues, and virtually every 12-team league, so he's worth checking on.
