Fantasy football start/sit advice Week 9: Jarrett Boykin

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Wil Boykin reward fantasy owners against the Bears on Monday Night Football?

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin was waiting in the wings earlier this season, buried on a deep wide receiver shot but with the talent to breakout once given the opportunity.

He got that opportunity a few weeks back when Randall Cobb went down with a knee injury. Boykin hasn't looked back, catching 13 passes for 192 yards in his last two games along with one touchdown. He's become one of Aaron Rodgers' favorite targets in the passing game.

Fantasy spin: Boykin is a must-start for fantasy football owners entering the stretch run. With Cobb, James Jones and Jermichael Finley all dealing with injuries, Boykin and Jordy Nelson are the two primary beneficiaries of Rodgers' dominance.

The Bears have a solid defense, but it's not quite as intimidating as it has been in recent seasons, so don't let that deter you from starting Boykin, who should factor into the offense early and often.
