Tyler Boyd has been one of the biggest surprises this NFL season, but his big games are becoming more and more common.

Fantasy owners have surely been overjoyed with his performances as of late, but the best is yet to come for the third-year pro. He's been unstoppable when he's had the ball thrown his way as QB Andy Dalton has the highest passer rating in the league when targeting Boyd over the past five weeks.

And with A.J. Green out this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, the Bengals are surely going to feed Boyd early and often.

It's time to start talking about him as one of the best wide receiver options in fantasy football.

If you're in a PPR league and own Boyd, you've enjoyed quite the season. With 49 catches for 620 yards and five scores, he's been one of the best waiver-wire pickups of the year.

Plus, whenever he gets a large workload, he's produced some gaudy numbers. 

Green's close to 10 targets a game have to go somewhere, and Boyd is the most likely recipient. The Bengals' receiver should put up WR1 numbers this Sunday against a Saints defense that gives up the most points to the wide receiver position this season.
