2019 Fantasy Outlook
Boone posted a relatively obscure rookie season despite Dalvin Cook missing five games as the rookie saw action in just seven contests, totaling 11 carries for 47 yards mostly in mop-up duty. An absurdly productive Cincinnati pro day (4.44 40, 42-inch vertical, 139-inch broad jump) acts as an irresistibly tantalizing carrot for a team that doesn't exactly have a sturdy depth chart at running back - with injury-prone Dalvin Cook manning the top position and 2019 third-round pick Alexander Mattison potentially factoring in as a goal line back. Boone figures to compete with Lions castoff Ameer Abdullah and last year's undrafted free agent Roc Thomas for the No. 3 role. Read Past Outlooks

Gets first carries Sunday

September 24, 2019
Boone had three carries for 28 yards in Sunday's win over Oakland.
Boone got his first carries of the season amid a blowout win. He played just five snaps on offense. He's not going to get much action off the bench unless Dalvin Cook or Alexander Mattison is hurt. However, he could eventually emerge as the No. 3 RB over Ameer Abdullah.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Boone was dynamite his first two years at Cincinnati, torching Bearcats opponents for 1,399 yards (6.8 YPC) and 18 touchdowns in his first 20 games. Unfortunately, his production fell off a cliff in his final two seasons, totaling just 851 yards (4.0 YPC) and six touchdowns in 19 games while struggling to stay healthy. Foot and ankle troubles plagued him consistently over that stretch. You can't just wave away durability concerns, especially when complemented by inadequate production, but Boone's trajectory reminds somewhat of Elijah McGuire's. McGuire was off to a blazing fast start at Louisiana-Lafayette before chronic foot issues weighed him down, but he had better luck with the Jets last year. Aside from his promising early-career production, Boone's strongest selling point is his athletic testing. He lit up Cincinnati's pro day with a 4.44 40-yard dash, 42-inch vertical, 139-inch broad jump, and 6.95-second three-cone, and that broad jump especially is a remarkable figure. Dalvin Cook has a long history of injury troubles and Latavius Murray isn't known for his durability, either, so keep an eye on both Boone and Roc Thomas this preseason to see if one claims that RB3 role in Minnesota.
