Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Packers WR Jarrett Boykin practiced well this week, further strengthening his grip on the No. 4 berth. As a rookie, Boykin played 92 snaps and caught five passes. One of his most obvious shortcomings was a glaring lack of aggressiveness after the catch. On Saturday night, Boykin started and played 28 snaps. On his first targeted attempt, he beat cornerback Janoris Jenkins on a slant for 7 yards. On his second, he ran a stop-start sideline comeback route against the press coverage of nickel back Trumaine Johnson, putting the defender on his heels and making the catch 9 yards downfield. Johnson (6-2, 204) came up for the tackle but Boykin made him miss.

Fantasy Impact: 

Boykin will be fantasy relevant if any of the other Packer receivers miss time due to injury. Keep him in mind as a late-round flier if you have Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson or James Jones on the roster.
