Jarrett Boykin manages just one catch in Week 2


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin caught only one of his three targets for six yards in his team's 31-24 win over the Jets in Week 2.

Boykin appeared to lose significant playing time to rookie Davante Adams after a bad drop, and he may be hard-pressed to see a significant amount of snaps moving forward after the rookie did an impressive job while on the field. Boykin didn't receive a target in Week 1 after drawing Richard Sherman in coverage all game. He'll hope to put something positive together in Week 3 against the Lions.


Jarrett Boykin beats out Davante Adams for role as No. 3 WR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Packers coach Mike McCarthy has been touting since February that he feels wide receiver Jarrett Boykin would take another step forward in his development in 2014, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

His comments Tuesday continue to show the same conviction and seem to indicate Boykin has held off rookie Davante Adams for the role as the team's No. 3 wide receiver behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.

"Clearly, Jarrett Boykin has taken the next step," McCarthy said. "I just love the way he plays. He's had an excellent camp. He's physical, his toughness, he's relentless. I think he's exceptional at the top of his route. You see his strength and balance to separate from a DB."

Adams has totaled 86 snaps in the preseason, which leads all of the team's wide receivers. He has four catches for 50 yards compared to Boykin's three catches for 21 yards. But like plenty of rookies, he hasn't always been consistent.

"I'm not sure what a typical rookie looks like," offensive coordinator Tom Clements said Monday in response to a question about Adams. "He's improving. He's working hard. There's a lot of positive things."


Davante Adams trailing Jarrett Boykin in pecking order


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Packers rookie receiver Davante Adams caught a pair of 14-yard passes and a 2-point conversion against the Rams on Saturday, but "he hasn't quite done enough" to unseat Jarrett Boykin as the No. 3 receiver, reports ESPN.com. Boykin started the game as Green Bay came out in a three-receiver set and caught three of his four targets for 21 yards.

Adams, a second-round pick out of Fresno State, "made a nice catch on a post for 14 yards when it looked like Rams cornerback Marcus Roberson might have a play on the ball," the report said. Later, on a stop-and-go move, Adams gained 14 yards and "was one broken tackle away from a touchdown."


Jarrett Boykin will be 'hard to dislodge'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Jarrett Boykin improved dramatically last season and "will be hard to dislodge" from the Packers' No. 3 receiver job, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Boykin will have to hold off second-round pick Davante Adams, fifth-rounder Jared Abbrederis and seventh-rounder Jeff Janis.

Boykin, 24, caught 49 passes for 681 yards and three touchdowns last season.


Jarrett Boykin still in No. 3 role


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) Even though the Packers brought in rookies Davante Adams, Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis, Jarrett Boykin is still lining up as the No. 3 receiver, reports ESPN.

The Packers are going with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb as the Top 2 guys, but Boykin is the No. 3 receiver heading into training camp. Of the rookies, Adams is likely to pose the most competition, but Boykin got extensive playing time in 2013 when Cobb was out with a leg injury.

Boykin finished 2013 with 49 catches for 681 yards and three touchdowns.


Jarrett Boykin won't sneak up on opponents in 2014


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Packers coach Mike McCarthy said No. 3 receiver Jarrett Boykin will draw more attention from defenses this season, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He also was very supportive of the receiver, saying he expects him to "step up."

"He's going to probably see more challenges really from the defense," McCarthy said. "I mean, he's played on special teams, he's played enough reps for us, you feel like you know what you have as a player. His confidence has really grown particularly throughout last year.

"He's had good production with his opportunities so really just the consistency in his performance and No. 1, it's always availability."

Boykin caught 49 passes for 681 yards and three touchdowns last year.


Mike McCarthy: Jarrett Boykin has 'another jump in him'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Packers coach Mike McCarthy said receiver Jarrett Boykin "had a heck of a year" with 49 catches for 681 yards and three touchdowns, "and I still think he has another jump in him," reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Boykin's development means Green Bay likely will let James Jones walk in free agency, the report said.

McCarthy said Boykin is a capable No. 3 behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, and could improve enough to become a No. 2 receiver.

"He's a tough guy and his own man," McCarthy told the paper. "If you could spend more time around him in a one-on-one setting, you would go, 'Wow. OK. I see what you're saying.' I've always liked Jarrett. I've always felt he had it."


Jarrett Boykin scores on fumble return vs. Bears


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin scored one of the wackiest plays of the season during Sunday’s must-win game against the Packers in Week 17.

His quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, was hit from behind by Peppers and lost the football. The officials did not rule it an incomplete pass and after a long wait, Boykin picked up the ball and ran into end zone for a 15-yard fumble return for a touchdown. He caught only two of four passes thrown his way for 8 yards in a 33-28 victory.

Boykin finished the regular season with 49 receptions for 681 yards and three touchdowns. He'll face the 49ers at home in the opening round of the playoffs.

Jarrett Boykin victim Sunday of missed targets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) No receiver was more negatively affected Sunday by the inaccuracy of Packers quarterback Matt Flynn than Jarrett Boykin.

Yes, Boykin did score a touchdown on a perfectly thown 5-yarder late in the first quarter. But Flynn overthrew him in the end zone to end the game and secure defeat. It was a common theme throughout. Boykin was targeted a game-high 13 times, yet caught just five for 54 yards.

Despite limited numbers due greatly to Flynn, he continued in Week 16 to emerge as a threat. He has 11 catches for 137 yards and a touchdown in his last two games combined.

Boykin will try to get on the same page with Flynn - unless Aaron Rodgers returns under center - in Week 17 at Chicago.


Might be risky to trust Jarrett Boykin Week 16


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Around the middle of the season, Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin was one of the fastest rising players in Fantasy, as he was proving to be a viable replacement in Green Bay's offense for the injured Randall Cobb. Unfortunately, Boykin has struggled as of late, making him a questionable Fantasy start heading into a Week 16 showdown with the Steelers.

Through 14 games against the Steelers, wide receivers average 156.4 receiving yards and 20.1 Fantasy points per week, which is the 10th-lowest average. Wide receivers have totaled 12 touchdowns, with nine coming in the last seven games.

Even after Aaron Rodgers injured his collarbone, Boykin had a few good games before Matt Flynn became the starting quarterback. The last few weeks Flynn just hasn't looked to Boykin like the other Packers quarterbacks did, which has hurt Boykin's Fantasy value.

Boykin didn't have a bad performance Week 15, totaling six catches for 83 yards against the Cowboys. However, it's just tough to trust him given his recent struggles and the tough matchup against Pittsburgh.

Boykin is at best a low-end No. 3 Fantasy wide receiver or flex option. You should probably look to better alternatives Week 16.


Jarrett Boykin does his part in dramatic Green Bay triumph


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin performed about as well as his teammates in the first half Sunday at Dallas. That is, not well.

He managed just two catches for 17 yards before intermission, but aided in an incredible comeback victory with four receptions for 66 yards thereafter. Included was a 27-yard snag midway through the fourth quarter that set up the touchdown that cut the deficit to 36-31.

Boykin and his Packers host Pittsburgh in Week 16.


Not much better for Jarrett Boykin


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin, who went without a catch on three targets last week, had just two on three targets Week 14 against the Falcons, gaining 23 yards. Both performances came with Matt Flynn under center. In his previous seven games, none of which were started by Flynn, Boykin averaged 4.9 catches for 73.3 yards.

With the Packers relying on short passes on a snowy day, many of the looks that might have normally gone to Boykin instead went to tight end Andrew Quarless, who had six catches for 66 yards.

Though Boykins hasn't developed much of a rapport with Flynn, he may not have to work with him much longer. Aaron Rodgers, who was sidelined for a fifth straight game because of a broken collarbone in Week 14, is back practicing and could be ready to return Week 15 at Dallas.


Jarrett Boykin could struggle again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2013) Though his matchup Week 14 against Atlanta is favorable -- the Falcons rank 20th against the pass, allowing 247.8 yards per game -- Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin isn't such a safe bet to rebound from his disastrous outing Week 13 at Detroit in which he caught zero passes on three targets.

Why? Because Matt Flynn remains the favorite to start at quarterback.

Boykin's production didn't drop too much when Aaron Rodgers first broke his collarbone in Week 9, but he was working with Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien. Flynn hasn't shown he's on the same level. Granted, Flynn was OK in relief duty in Week 12, so it's possible his Week 13 struggles were mostly caused by the Lions' pass rush, but the bottom line is you're taking a risk by starting Boykin with Flynn under center.

Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all rank Boykin outside of their top 30 at wide receiver for this week.


Jarrett Boykin a victim of circumstance


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) Packers receiver Jarrett Boykin earned a lot of trust from his Fantasy owners. He burned off a lot of it on Thanksgiving when he was held without a catch over three targets at Detroit. 

But it's safe to say much of it was not his own fault. Boykin played a ton, ran a lot of routes but played with Matt Flynn, who was horribly ineffective under center for Green Bay. Making matters worse was a Packers offensive line that was overmatched by a big group of defensive linemen for Detroit. 

Anyone bailing on Boykin now is foolish. Aaron Rodgers is expected back soon -- potentially next week against the Falcons. Once that happens Boykin won't have to worry about Flynn costing him opportunities. Not to mention a very favorable matchup coming in Week 14. I might find myself liking Boykin again next week. 


Jarrett Boykin goes catchless in loss to Lions


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) Packers receiver Jarrett Boykin had three targets but zero catches against the Lions on Thanksgiving. Two of the three targets were on deep routes, the third was quarterback Matt Flynn's first pass attempt of the second half that was nearly intercepted. 

Boykin one of many receivers hurt by the Packers offense leaning too much on Flynn, who played behind an offensive line that was overwhelmed by the Lions defense. Hopefully it's a problem that gets rectified when the Packers host the Falcons in Week 14.


Jarrett Byokin emerges after quarterback change Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin contributed a touchdown with less than four minutes remaining in regulation to help Green Bay rally from a 16-point fourth-quarter deficit Sunday against Minnesota. Boykin finished with five catches for 60 yards during a 26-all tie Week 12.

Boykin had a disastrous first half with Scott Tolzien running the offense, as he had no catches and one target by halftime. Boykin's production, however, picked up when Matt Flynn came off the bench in the third quarter and Green Bay went to a no-huddle offense. 

Boykin's second career touchdown came on a 6-yard reception with 3:30 remaining. He had just two catches for 17 yards up until that point in the game. 

Boykin, who finished with 10 targets, made another big catch in overtime. He hauled in a 34-yard catch down to Minnesota's 7-yard line on the team's opening drive in overtime, which helped set up a 20-yard field goal. Boykin caught the pass over a Minnesota defender down the sideline and got both feet in bounds.

The Packers' next game is Thursday at Detroit (Week 13).


Jarrett Boykin making smooth transition without starting QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2013) Although Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is sidelined by a collarbone injury, wide receiver Jarrett Boykin hasn't seen a decline in production. In the first two games Rodgers has been out, Boykin has totaled 14 catches for 203 yards.

Rodgers will miss a third straight start Week 12 vs. Minnesota, but it shouldn't be of major concern to Fantasy owners since his replacement, Scott Tolzien, hasn't had any issues getting the football to Boykin.

In 10 games against the Vikings, wide receivers are averaging 182.4 receiving yards and 24.2 Fantasy points per week, which is tied for the 10th-highest average. Wide receivers have totaled 11 touchdowns, with Packers teammate Jordy Nelson being the only receiver to record multiple touchdowns against Minnesota. Boykin had five catches for 89 yards Week 8 at Minnesota.

Boykin has stepped up for the Packers since Randall Cobb landed on short-term injured reserve with a knee injury. The only gripe Fantasy owners might have is that Boykin doesn't score a lot, recording one touchdown this season.

Boykin has a little more Fantasy value in PPR leagues because his volume of catches help make up for his lack of touchdowns. Though, Boykin is still deserving of a roster spot in standard leagues and is a good No. 2 Fantasy receiver for Week 12.


Jarrett Boykin nearly cracks century mark again


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin enjoyed a solid performance as he fell nine yards shy of his second consecutive 100-yard game during Sunday's loss to the Giants in Week 11.

Scott Tolzien completed a deep pass to Boykin for a 53-yard reception, which led to an Eddie Lacy touchdown early in the fourth quarter. Boykin was targeted eight times and finished with eight catches for 91 yards in a 27-13 defeat.

Boykin has 14 receptions for 203 yards over his last two games played. He'll look to stay productive in Week 12 at home against the Vikings.

Jarrett Boykin seeking back-to-back 100-yard games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2013) Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin will be seeking his first career back-to-back 100-yard game Sunday against the Giants in Week 11.

Boykin has already cracked the century mark twice and has caught 23 of the 36 passes thrown in his direction for 362 yards and one touchdown, only behind Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Randall Cobb.

The Giants have not allowed a receiver to score a touchdown in the last three games. Opposing wide receivers have scored 18.33 Fantasy points per game this season.

Boykin has been targeted at 10-plus time twice in his last four games. He shown some flashes of dominance, but with Jones easing back into his normal role, Boykin could lose some of his workload. Consider him a solid option in deeper Fantasy formats for Week 11.

Jarrett Boykin cracks century mark in loss to Eagles


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin turned in an impressive performance as he cracked the century mark during Sunday’s loss to the Eagles n Week 10.

Boykin showed some chemistry with backup quarterback Scott Tolzien under center, as he caught a deep pass for a 36-yard gain in the third quarter and a short screen pass for a 25-yard gain in the fourth quarter. He was targeted 13 times and finished with eight receptions for a team-high 112 yards in a 27-13 defeat.

Boykin has two 100-yard games over his last four contests. He has 23 catches for 362 yards and a touchdown this season.

Packers get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) Packers receivers Jarrett Boykin and Myles White each caught his lone target in the loss to Chicago. Boykin's reception went for 15 yards, White's for 8 yards.

They'll play the Eagles in Week 10.


Jarrett Boykin should deliver again Week 9


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) Jarrett Boykin has done exactly what the Packers hoped when injuries forced him into the starting lineup. The second-year wideout, who went undrafted out of Virginia Tech, has caught 13 passes for 192 yards and a touchdown in two starts, drawing 16 targets from Aaron Rodgers.

With James Jones iffy for Monday's game vs. Chicago, Boykin should be heavily involved again. He did nothing but inspire confidence with his Week 8 performance at Minnesota, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

"Boykin continued to impress, making difficult catches of three low balls and having the presence of mind to jump back to his feet and turn a 13-yard completion into 17 on third and 16," the paper said. "A free agent, he outperformed the high draft choices trying to cover him."

The Bears give up 21.7 Fantasy points to opposing wideouts, tied for 14th-most. Roll with Boykin as a WR2 Monday night.


Jarrett Boykin not a one-hit wonder


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2013) Packers receiver Jarrett Boykin followed up his breakout performance against Cleveland with five catches for 89 yards in the win over Minnesota. Boykin was targeted six times, third-most on the team, as he continued to excel in place of the injured James Jones.

Boykin doesn't have blazing speed, but he showed good hands and terrific awareness when Aaron Rodgers scrambled. In the past two weeks, he's caught 13 balls for 192 yards and a touchdown.

Jones might return Week 9 vs. Chicago, but Boykin should continue to be heavily involved as a receiver Rodgers trusts.


Jarrett Boykin looks to keep rolling


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/25/2013) Packers receiver Jarrett Boykin heads into his Week 8 matchup at Minnesota looking to stay hot after playing well last week.

Boykin had a featured role against Cleveland in Week 7 with Randall Cobb (knee) and James Jones (knee) out, and he responded with eight catches for 103 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets. Jones is out again this week, and Boykin also will benefit with tight end Jermichael Finley (neck) out.

It's not the best matchup since Minnesota has allowed just four receivers to score double digits in Fantasy points with six touchdowns allowed, but three of those scores have come in the past two games. In Green Bay's last game at Minnesota in the season finale of 2012, three Packers receivers combined for four touchdowns, so Aaron Rodgers should attack this defense with plenty of success, including plenty of production for Boykin. 

We like Boykin as a Top 20 Fantasy receiver this week, and I would start him over Marques Colston, Hakeem Nicks, Josh Gordon, Denarius Moore and Harry Douglas.


Jarrett Boykin puts self on football map with huge game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin grabbed his opportunity and ran with it Sunday against the Browns.

Given playing time due to injuries to James Jones and Randall Cobb, he more than doubled his career numbers with eight catches for 103 yards and a touchdown catch in the fourth quarter.

He entered the game with six career receptions for 70 yards, but made his presence felt immediately with four catches in the first quarter. He finished strong wih 77 yards receiving in the second half while exposing the lack of depth in the Cleveland secondary throughout the game.

Boykin will attempt to build on his success next Sunday night at Minnesota.
