Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 10: Jarrett Boykin

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers receiver struggled with Aaron Rodgers out Monday night. Can he be productive with Seneca Wallace throwing the football? We break down the fantasy implications.

It's been a rise-and-fall season for Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin, who didn't start producing until injuries to wide receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones, then had a couple big games, then saw his production fall off when quarterback Aaron Rodgers was injured in Monday's game against the Chicago Bears. Sunday, Boykin looks to create a connection with new starting quarterback Seneca Wallace as the Packers take on the Philadelphia Eagles.

Boykin was targeted only once Monday, catching a single 15-yard pass. In the two games before that, Boykin averaged 96 yards a game, playing with Jordy Nelson as his only wide receiver running mate.

When Rodgers left Monday's game, the Packers turned to the run. Rodgers had averaged more than 35 pass attempts a game over the season, but Wallace threw the ball only 19 times Monday.

Fantasy impact: With a week of practice as the No. 1, Wallace will likely be given the trust to throw the ball at least a few more times than he did Monday, when the team was led by rookie Eddie Lacy. With a few more passes attempted, some of them would likely go to Boykin, even with Jones having returned from injury.

That said, Boykin's stock falls off steeply with Rodgers out. Rodgers is a quarterback who can make a viable receiver from nothing; that is not a skill Wallace shares. Boykin was a fine low-end WR2 with Rodgers, but he becomes a low-end flex at best with Wallace. Fantasy owners would be wise to seek a better option.
