Jarrett Boykin dropped two more catchable balls in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
A red-zone drop in Week 2 is what got Davante Adams going initially and Boykin continued to struggle Sunday. Per the Green Bay Press-Gazette, "Aaron Rodgers' confidence in him as the No. 3 receiver has to be eroding." Note that Boykin played on 36-of-54 snaps against the Lions, while Adams was in on 35 snaps. We'd expect the more talented Adams to eventually emerge from this rotation, making him the one to stash where possible. Sep 22 - 9:13 AM

Jarrett Boykin caught just 1-of-4 targets for 11 yards in the Packers' Week 3 loss to the Lions.

Boykin spent the majority of the day running ahead of Davante Adams in three-wide sets, but hurt his cause with a brutal second-half drop. Adams ended up catching two passes to Boykin's one. Boykin has a pathetic two catches for 17 yards on seven targets through three games, leaving the door wide open for Adams to take his job.

Jarrett Boykin caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Jets.

This could be a death-sentence game for Boykin. He started in all three-wide sets, but committed a tough drop in the red-zone and began to lose snaps to rookie Davante Adams. When the dust settled, Adams impressed with 5-50-0 on seven targets and Boykin was at 1-6-0 on three targets. In a best-case scenario for Boykin, these two project to rotate now.

Drawing blanket coverage from Richard Sherman, Jarrett Boykin wasn't targeted in the Packers' Week 1 loss to the Seahawks.

Shutdown corner that he is, Sherman plays "sides," and doesn't shadow opposing No. 1 receivers. Tonight, he got Boykin's side, making him an afterthought for Aaron Rodgers, who never even looked his direction. The doughnut will cause some fantasy owners to panic, but Boykin is still a WR4 with WR3 upside in one of the league's very best offenses. Scoop him up if he gets dropped in your league. Boykin and the Pack get the Jets in Week 2, who are currently starting a safety at cornerback in Antonio Allen.

Jarrett Boykin has held strong as the Packers' No. 3 WR through training camp.

Davante Adams, a second-round rookie, was expected to push Boykin for the third receiver job in the Packers' three-wide base. Instead, the incumbent has held serve. "Clearly, Jarrett Boykin has taken the next step," coach Mike McCarthy said. "I just love the way he plays. He's had an excellent camp." In the third preseason game, Adams exclusively played with the backups, confirming he's the No. 4 receiver right now. Boykin's upside is capped by all the mouths to feed in Green Bay, but his ADP is way down in the 11th round. There's value there.

Jarrett Boykin had no catches on two targets in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Boykin clearly played ahead of second-round rookie Davante Adams, lining up with the first-stringers in all three-wide sets. But through three preseason games, Boykin has compiled just three catches for 21 yards and no touchdowns. It highlights the volume concerns coupled with "JAG" kind of ability. Boykin is more of a fantasy WR4 than WR3 to open the season.

Jarrett Boykin has reportedly been "no better than average" so far at camp.

It's no surprise as Boykin is an average talent. His fantasy upside is propped up by Aaron Rodgers and a Green Bay offense that is going to be elite this season. Of course, Boykin needs to hold off Davante Adams to realize that opportunity -- and he got a boost when Adams muffed two punts in the preseason opener. The rookie out of Fresno has also struggled with drops at practice.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Silverstein reports Packers WR Jarrett Boykin has struggled with dropped passes during training camp.

Boykin dropped five of his 75 targets last season, so we don't anticipate this being a major issue. But with the Packers having drafted Davante Adams and Jeff Janis in May, there's plenty of competition in camp. Boykin is still the favorite for No. 3 duties in the James Jones role. We like him as a value pick at his current 11th round ADP. The Packers are going to put up a ton of points.
Aug 4 - 7:56 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel believes Jarrett Boykin will be "hard to dislodge" from his No. 3 receiver role on the Packers.

Assuming he holds off second-round pick Davante Adams -- who struggled with drops during OTAs -- Boykin's outlook is particularly intriguing due to Green Bay's lack of an established pass-catching tight end. He could easily be Aaron Rodgers' No. 3 pass option this year, behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Boykin has a chance to be a re-draft-league steal. His ADP is the late-11th round.

Jarrett Boykin has worked as the No. 3 receiver during OTAs.

We're expecting second-round rookie Davante Adams to push Boykin, but it won't happen until training camp at the earliest. Boykin deserves some leash after stepping up nicely with a 49-681-3 line last season while pressed into eight starts. However, he'll have to get out of the gate hot to hold off Adams as the talent gap here is significant.

Coach Mike McCarthy continued to fawn over Jarrett Boykin at the NFL Annual Meeting.

McCarthy first unloaded praise on Boykin a month ago, signaling the end of James Jones' Packers career. Now he's at it again as Boykin prepares to be Aaron Rodgers' clear-cut No. 3 target behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. "I can't say enough about Boykin," McCarthy said Wednesday. "The young man is a heck of a player." He remains an obvious breakout candidate.
Mar 27 - 8:17 AM

Coach Mike McCarthy said he's "as high on [Jarrett] Boykin as anybody in our building."

This should put the nail in free agent James Jones' Packers coffin. The head coach is a good guy to have in your corner, and Boykin appears to have made quite an impression. "He had a heck of a year, and I still think he has another jump in him. ... I've always liked Jarrett. I've always felt he had it," said McCarthy, who added that he sees Boykin evolving into an eventual No. 2 receiver. For this season, Boykin will be No. 3 behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. It's still nearly an every-down role in the Packers' scheme, giving Boykin a high 2014 floor.

Jarrett Boykin was held catch-less in Green Bay's Wild Card round loss to the 49ers.

The Packers' base offense Sunday was comprised of three- and four-receiver sets. Boykin and Randall Cobb rotated in the third wideout role, but the former failed to reel in any of his targets. 24 years old, Boykin is likely to replace impending free agent James Jones as Green Bay's No. 3 receiver in 2014, with Cobb and Jordy Nelson in the starting lineup. Boykin will be worth drafting in the mid to late rounds of re-draft leagues. He's a WR3/4 in Dynasty.

Jarrett Boykin caught just two passes for eight yards in Green Bay's Week 17 win over the Bears, but was credited with a fumble-return touchdown.

Boykin's 15-yard touchdown was scored as a fumble recovery in the end zone, negating its potential fantasy impact. Boykin filled in admirably as the Packers' No. 3 receiver during the absence of Randall Cobb, but will be fourth on the depth chart for the playoffs with Cobb finally back in the fold. With James Jones an impending free agent, Boykin could serve as the Packers' No. 3 wideout in 2014 after catching 49 passes for 681 yards and three touchdowns this season. He has legit playmaking ability.

Jarrett Boykin caught five passes for 54 yards and one touchdown in Week 16 against the Steelers.

Boykin saw a team-high 13 targets from Matt Flynn. Flynn overshot him a number of times, including on the final play of the game in the end zone. Boykin's touchdown came from five yards out in the first quarter on a back-shoulder fade. Boykin has been a WR3 for much of the year since he replaced Randall Cobb in three-wide sets. The Packers take on the Bears in Week 17.
