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.
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.
