Jarrett Boykin returns to fantasy relevancy in Week 10

Gregory Shamus

Boykin caught eight passes for 112 yards on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Fantasy owners that dropped Jarrett Boykin after putting up a dud performance in Week 9 may be regretting their decision. Boykin burst back into fantasy relevancy with eight catches for 112 yards in the Packers' loss to the Eagles on Sunday. It wasn't until quarterback Seneca Wallace left with a groin injury when Boykin saw his first target. Quarterback Scott Tolzien filled in for the injured Wallace, targeting Boykin a team-high 13 times. Fellow wide receivers Jordy Nelson and James Jones also saw a healthy dose of targets, but it was Boykin that was able to make plays when getting into open space. After just one catch for 15 yards in Week 10, Boykin is showing life without Aaron Rodgers on the field.

Fantasy impact: Approximately 33 percent of Yahoo! leagues saw owners dropping Boykin after Rodgers was injured. His lack of production with Seneca Wallace under center caused many owners to jump ship, and rightfully so. With Scott Tolzien leading the offense, Boykin now becomes an intriguing WR3 moving forward. He'll likely see plenty of targets against the New York Giants in Week 11, followed by a juicy matchup against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.
