Packers declared Jarrett Boykin (knee, groin) inactive for Sunday's Week 4 game at Chicago.

Already trending down due to a poor start to the season, Boykin is now really in the dumps. It's a monster opportunity for talented rookie Davante Adams, who projects to play at least 70 percent of the snaps as Aaron Rodgers' No. 3 wideout. He's a WR3 with upside. Jeff Janis is also active for the first time in his career. The rest of the Packers' inactives: QB Scott Tolzien, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, LB Brad Jones and C Garth Gerhart.

Jarrett Boykin (knee, groin) is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Bears.

Coach Mike McCarthy says Boykin hurt his groin in Thursday's practice, and will be a game-time decision for Sunday. If Boykin, who has already been seeing his snaps reduced thanks to drops, can't play, Davante Adams will likely handle No. 3 duties himself, with fellow rookie Jeff Janis mixing in as the No. 4.

Jarrett Boykin (knee) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

Rotating snaps with Davante Adams at No. 3 receiver, Boykin is back on track for Week 4. He remains off the WR4 radar, however.

Jarrett Boykin (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's a new injury for Boykin. He's been losing snaps to rookie Davante Adams the past two games and continues to battle drop issues. Adams will likely take hold of the No. 3 receiver job in Green Bay shortly, making Boykin irrelevant.
Sep 24 - 3:13 PM

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.
Aug 22 - 10:56 PM

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.
Jul 11 - 3:29 PM

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.
