In a move that’s considered at least somewhat of a surprise given the lack of proven and available players in the Panthers receiving corps, the Black and Blue Review is reporting that the team is waiving Jarrett Boykin.
The Panthers traded a conditional draft pick to Seattle for second-year wide receiver Kevin Norwood on Monday and could be in the market for additional help at the position through this week and weekend as other teams trim their rosters.

Panthers announced: Signed WR Jarrett Boykin to a one-year deal.
Packers beat writer Rob Demovsky answered a question about WR Davante Adams getting more work going forward:
"For starters, Davante Adams has moved well ahead of Jarrett Boykin for the No. 3 receiver spot. Put it to you this way: Teams aren't going to start paying less attention to Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. They would rather try to make a guy like Adams beat them. About the only thing that could reduce the number of targets headed Adams' way is if one of their tight ends somehow became productive. But based on the first half of the season, that seems unlikely. Adams' workload should increase."
Demovsky even broke it down nicely in terms of fantasy potential - don't expect teams to try and stop Adams which could be good news for his fantasy production. If you have a free roster spot or looking for an upside guy to stash, that could very well be Adams. He's probably safer in deeper leagues at least right now, but may have flex potential in typical 10-team leagues if things work out.

Packers WR Jarrett Boykin (groin, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 7. Boykin’s possible return shouldn’t impact Davante Adams, who has taken over the Green Bay WR3 role.
