Jarrett Boykin's Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 7
Boykin not only led the team with eight receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown—he was also quarterback Aaron Rodgers' favorite target with a team-high 10 targets.
It's important to note that Cleveland's defense stuck elite corner Joe Haden on Jordy Nelson, so Boykin had plenty of room to operate.
That's actually a good thing for Boykin's fantasy forecast.
The second-year man out of Virginia Tech was in on all two- and three-wide sets and will continue to be with Jones' impending return in the next week or so. That will actually stretch defenses even more thinly and leave Boykin open for plenty of fantasy production opportunities.
What's most intriguing about Boykin from a fantasy standpoint is his usage in the same role as Cobb, which means he is here to stay as a fantasy contributor until Cobb can return from his injury.
With favorable matchups with Minnesota and Philadelphia on the horizon, Boykin may put up similar numbers until he is forced from the field upon Cobb's return.
For the next couple of weeks, Boykin is a borderline No. 2 fantasy receiver in the Green Bay offense. Don't expect him to always go for 100 yards or more, but he'll be steadily productive as the starting No. 3 receiver.
