Dynasty rankings are in constant flux and staying informed is the key to making roster decisions for your fantasy football team. The Dynasty Watch series highlights some key takeaways from each week’s games. Sure, he’s the hotness right now, but Tyler Boyd didn’t immediately break out as a rookie. Playing behind A.J. Green and Brandon LaFell, Boyd’s 2016 season was solid but unspectacular. He followed that up with a 2017 season where he missed a few games with an injured hamstring, was a healthy scratch for a few games, and seldom targeted in the games he did play. He’s paying off in a big way now for those that kept the faith, but it would be hard to blame owners in shallow leagues for dropping him during the worst parts of his 2017 season. With first-rounder John Ross in the fold, an anemic offense, and a sharp decrease in playing time, things looked bleak for Boyd’s future. He was on waivers in many leagues to start the year, or could’ve been had for nothing in a trade.
