Jarrett Boykin gets bump in fantasy value

Patrick McDermott

The Packers’ undrafted wide receiver could see a big role against the Browns in Week 7. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin could be the Packers' No. 2 option behind Jordy Nelson with Randall Cobb (leg) on injured reserve and James Jones (knee) questionable for the team's Week 7 game against the Cleveland Browns. Boykin had one catch on six targets for 43 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.

Fantasy impact: Though seeing any receiver make one grab in a game after getting six looks, fantasy owners need to keep in mind that Boykin's NFL experience has only last 15 career-games. At first glance that's disappointing but he is playing behind so many great veteran receivers in Green Bay that this is his first real chance to show the team what he can do.

Since Nelson will more than likely draw Browns lockdown cornerback Joe Haden in coverage, Boykin could stand to be a big-time fantasy performer in Week 7 and easily go over the 100-yard mark for the first time in his career. As of right now, Boykin has never had more than two catches in a game in his career, albeit in very limited action.

The Browns defense is known for playing well against the pass, but the Packers offense is known as the best in the league. Boykin should put up solid numbers in Week 7. Add that to the fact Cobb is out at least six weeks, and Boykin is a good option to add to your roster.
