Matthew Boyd 2021 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Boyd was dreadful last year. Only reason I have some interest is based on the rumors of the ball being "de-juiced." If anyone stands to gain the most from less HRs, it would be Boyd. Boyd still has strikeout potential and should be allowed to go deep into games and have a relatively unrestricted innings limit.

With an NFBC ADP of 296, he's basically free.

He’s a fantastic gamble. He threw the changeup more and it was getting swings and misses. The BBs went up a bit but that generally isn’t a big problem for him.

 

All he needs to do is just not give up so many HRs. Enter the dejuiced ball.

He was pretty lousy in 2018 and 2019 too.

You may as well double down and go after Robbie Ray too.

Hi it’s me, I own both of these polished turds in dynasty. Yolo

as for risk/reward, yeah they are cheap and have k upside.
 

id rather have bad pitchers who can ring up the Ks than bad pitchers with prospect hype (cough, Dylan cease)

What kind of K upside does Boyd really have? Obviously, 2019 gives us an upside, but that seems to be more outlier than anything else. He piled up Ks in 2019, but never has in any other point in his career. Even last year, he struck out just 60 in 60.1 ip. Aside from 2019, his career k/9 is 7.8, and if he doesn't get a ton of Ks like he did in 2019, I just don't see the value.

if I remember right, he seemed to have one melt down inning a game. The rest of the game he would be pretty decent. Hrs allowed and Walks can also tend to be an issue.

He always seems to me like he should be better than what he is.  But I would take a chance on him at the right ADP.
