A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd were listed among the top wide receiver duos by NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt heading into the 2019 season.

Green recorded 46 receptions for 694 yards (15.1-yard average) and six touchdowns during the 2018 season. In his Bengals career, Green has 63 receiving touchdowns since entering the NFL in 2011, which ranks sixth in the NFL over that span. He is one of only seven players with at least 60 receiving touchdowns since 2011.

Despite suffering a knee injury in Game 14 that ended his season prematurely, Boyd (1,028 receiving yards) in 2018 notched the first 1,000-yard season of his three-year career, the 27th 1,000-yard season in Bengals history, and the first 1,000-yard season by a player other than WR A.J. Green since 2009 (WR Chad Johnson, 1,047).
