Jarrett Boykin turned heads in the world of fantasy football after catching eight passes for 103 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Browns. Boykins led all Green Bay receivers while filling in for an injured Randall Cobb. James Jones also sat out of Sunday's contest, leaving a lot of targets on the table. With Jordy Nelson seeing a lot of attention from Browns cornerback Joe Haden, Boykin and Rodgers were able to exploit Cleveland's defensive backs and connect eight times on ten attempts.
Fantasy impact: Boykin should be added in all formats. Rodgers favored Boykin in the passing game and his trust in the young receiver certainly paid off. With the Packers being decimated by injuries on offense, Boykin could continue to see a consistent role throughout the rest of the season. It remains to be seen how Boykin's role will be affected when James Jones returns, but even if Boykin sees half of the ten targets Cobb was averaging each game, he should continue to be at least a WR3 in most formats.
