3. Tyler Boyd

Tyler Boyd found a niche for being the third wide receiver on the Cincinnati Bengals in recent years. Boyd was a nice complementary piece behind Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins who was good for 2-3 big games a year that definitely swung many fantasy football matchups.

Some may say that Boyd is more talented than a WR3 and that on other teams he could be penciled in as the WR2. While at his best Boyd looks like someone who can be a WR2, he simply is not consistent enough to be considered a true second option in a passing offense.

Boyd would pencil in as the WR3 behind a presumed Nabers and Palmer, but that does not mean that this would suddenly revitalize the room. Boyd definitely would not be worth the contract he would likely sign for and most Chargers fans would simply prefer to have Allen instead.

Plus, it is not like Boyd is a spring chicken that is young in this league. Boyd will turn 30 during the 2024 season so he is not that far behind Allen in age. He also has not had a 1,000-yard season since 2019, so his best days are definitely behind him.

But once again, Boyd is the third-best wide receiver on the market for the Chargers to pursue. This team needs all the help it can get after trading away its best receiver.
