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.
Jan 5 - 8:10 PM

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.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 08:27:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin caught six passes for 83 yards in Green Bay’s Week 15 win over the Cowboys.

Boykin came alive with the rest of the Packers’ offense in the second half, where he made four of his six grabs, adding some nice yardage after the catch. Boykin has been extremely hit-or-miss with Matt Flynn under center, but would be back in the WR3 conversation if Aaron Rodgers were to get cleared for Week 16. Otherwise, Boykin would be a high-risk WR4 for the fantasy finals.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 09:23:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin was limited to two catches for 23 yards in the Packers' Week 14 win over the Falcons.

Jordy Nelson, Andrew Quarless, and Eddie Lacy were all bigger parts of the passing attack than third wideout Boykin, who has finally hit a slump after an unlikely hot run around midseason. Even if Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) returns in Week 15, Boykin will be a low-end WR3 option against the Cowboys.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 04:12:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin was held without a catch on three targets in Green Bay's Week 13 loss to the Lions.

Don't blame Boykin, who, like the rest of Green Bay's receiver corps, never had a chance at a big day with Matt Flynn proving shockingly inept at quarterback. Flynn got off only 20 pass attempts, mustering a measly 139 yards. Showing zero threat downfield, he was blitzed with impunity, taking seven sacks. The good news for Boykin is, Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) should be back for Week 14. Boykin will remain on the WR3 radar against the Falcons.

Jarrett Boykin caught five passes for 60 yards and one touchdown in Week 12 against the Vikings.

Boykin finished second on the team with ten targets, two behind James Jones and three ahead of Jordy Nelson. He could have had an even bigger day had he not been underthrown on a sideline shot where Boykin beat Xavier Rhodes on third-and-five. Boykin did make a heck of a 34-yard grab down the left sideline in Chris Cook's coverage to set the offense up at the seven-yard line. His touchdown came from six yards out in the fourth quarter. Boykin has averaged 6.3 catches for 87.6 yards the past three weeks. He's a borderline WR2/3.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 06:20:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin caught six passes for 91 yards in Week 11 against the Giants.

Boykin was targeted eight times on the day and continues to do work after the catch. He's topped the 89 yard mark in four of his last five games and is a legit WR3 who will receive a bump when Aaron Rodgers returns to the lineup. Boykin and the Packers take on the Vikings in Week 12. Boykin caught five passes for 89 yards against Minnesota in Week 8.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 09:14:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin caught eight passes for 112 yards in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Eagles.

Even with the Packers starting Seneca Wallace and then riding Scott Tolzien, Boykin was spectacular. He made people miss on screens and showed a tremendous ability to win at the catch point on some high throws. Boykin led the team in targets with 13 and has now gone over 89 yards in three of the last four games. He'll be tough to trust in Week 11 with Tolzien starting and James Jones looking 100 percent, but there's WR3 upside right now and Dynasty stash appeal here.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 06:01:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin caught one pass for 15 yards in Week 9 versus Chicago.

It was Boykin's lone target of the night. Outside of Jordy Nelson and Andrew Quarless, none of the Green Bay pass catchers produced much with Seneca Wallace coming on for an injured Aaron Rodgers (left shoulder) early in the first quarter. Boykin was the No. 2 receiver opposite Nelson in two-wide sets with James Jones (knee) being eased back in. Boykin will struggle to hold fantasy value if Wallace is forced to make starts for the Packers.
Tue, Nov 5, 2013 12:42:00 AM

Jarrett Boykin had five catches for 89 yards in Sunday night's Week 8 win over the Vikings.

Boykin started and played opposite Jordy Nelson in two-wide sets. With James Jones and Randall Cobb sidelined, he remains the clear No. 2 option in the passing game. Boykin was targeted six times by Aaron Rodgers and ran mostly short-to-intermediate routes. He'll remain a strong WR3/FLEX option in Week 9 against Chicago.

Packers WR Jarrett Boykin caught eight balls for 103 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Browns.

Playing Randall Cobb's old role, Boykin had a field day primarily matching up with Browns CB Buster Skrine, tacking 39- and 20-yard receptions on top of a bunch of underneath connections with Aaron Rodgers. Back in October of 2012, Rodgers predicted former undrafted free agent Boykin would "be a big-time player for us at some point." Boykin was that today, and has the opportunity to continue to flourish in Green Bay's offense due to injuries to Jermichael Finley (neck), Cobb (fractured fibula), and James Jones (PCL sprain). View Boykin as a strong WR3 play in Week 8 against the Vikings.

Jarrett Boykin will be the Packers' No. 2 WR in Week 7 if James Jones (questionable, knee) can't play.

Randall Cobb (leg) was placed on IR/recall Tuesday. Boykin is a second-year undrafted player out of Virginia Tech that struggled when pressed into 58 snaps last week. But with a week to get coached up, the Packers are expecting a better performance against the Browns. "Jarrett's one of the smartest guys we've got on the football team, and he's very sharp," Aaron Rodgers said. Any receiver playing every snap with Rodgers is worth a long look as a plug-n-play, even if they are somewhat talent-deficient.
