Davante Adams seemingly took over as the number three wide receiver this week. Adams played 37 snaps while Jarrett Boykin only played 35. Adams ended up finishing with five receptions for 50 yards compared to Boykin's one catch for 6 yards.
Fantasy Impact: This is what many fans expected and those that bought into Boykin feared - Davante Adams. Boykin was ineffective Sunday and then seemed to get pulled in favor of Adams who made his official NFL debut, in a sense. This is a red flag for Boykin owners as no injury has been reported. Pay attention to practice reps throughout this week and maybe wait one more week to see if Boykin returns to his number three role. It is a little early to jump ship, but the waters are getting warm. Wait and see approach advised here for Boykin owners.

Jarrett Boykin was covered by Richard Sherman all evening and did not receive a single target from Aaron Rodgers in the loss at Seattle.
Fantasy Impact: Unless you are in an extremely deep league, you probably weren't starting Boykin because of his difficult match up. Some owners may panic at his lack of targets and drop him; don't be that owner. He still is a wide receiver in a potent offense which will give him plenty of opportunities to make plays and contribute.

Jarrett Boykin is projected to have 2.8 receptions, 33.2 yards, and 0.3 touchdowns. (Source: FantasyPros
Fantasy Impact: That stat line maxes out at 8 fantasy points in ppr, which is not worth starting in most leagues. If you are in a jam (maybe you drafted Wes Welker?) or you are feeling risky, there is the possibility that Seattle places all their attention on Cobb, Nelson, and Lacy, daring Boykin to beat them. But even in that scenario a big outing for Boykin is unlikely.

Clearly, Jarrett Boykin has taken the next step," McCarthy said. "I just love the way he plays. He's had an excellent camp. He's physical, his toughness, he's relentless. I think he's exceptional at the top of his route. You see his strength and balance to separate from a DB." (Source: Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel
Fantasy Impact: Boykin came in last season when Jones and Cobb went down and he really turned some heads, proving that when on the field consistently he can contribute in fantasy. As the 3rd WR on the depth chart this year, he will be on the field early and often. Three-wide-receiver-sets are Green Bay's most common formation. To put it in perspective, 2 years ago Randall Cobb totaled Cobb totaled 80 catches for 954 yards as the 3rd WR in GB. Boykin is worth owning in all leagues.

Boykin finished Saturday's game against the St. Louis Rams with three receptions for 21 yards. It was on back-to-back receptions where Boykin solidified his spot in the starting lineup. (Source: Twitter-Tyler Dunne
Fantasy Impact: If Boykin can hold off rookies Davante Adams and Jeff Janis, he is in line for a breakout season. While starting about half the year, Boykin finished with 49 receptions, 681 yards and three touchdowns last season. Assuming he can hold onto that starting role, he could potentially approach the 1,000-yard-threshold. It is likely he will end more around 800 yards with the bevy of options in GB for Rodgers, but 6 TDs is not asking too much. Consider Boykin a WR3 in fantasy drafts with low risk upside potential.

According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Boykin has "had too many drops in camp." (Source: Tom Silverstein on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Boykin is still expected to be the Packers' third receiver behind Nelson and Cobb to open the season; however, Rodgers seems to be building chemistry with rookie wide out, Davante Adams. At this point, Adams is not someone you should be drafting but he is someone to keep on your radar if the drops continue to be a problem for Boykin when the season beings. Boykin’s current ADP is in the 11th round, which should be a good value-pick in an offense that is expected to put up a ton of points.

Rob Demovsky, ESPN Packers beat writer, reports that WR Jarrett Boykin "looks every bit like the same receiver -- or better -- than the one who caught 49 passes for 681 yards and three touchdowns in the final 12 games last season." (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: At this point there is no reason to believe Jarrett Boykin won't be the Packers third WR. Though the offense will have more than enough opportunity to go around (regardless of how much or little the defense has improved), its also an offense with plenty of weapons. Unless Nelson or Cobb is injured, Boykin owners shouldn't expect consistent week-to-week production. He makes an intriguing late-round selection for owners wanting to own a prospective piece of the Packers pie.

Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are both going in the top 10 at their position and have ADPs in the first two or three rounds, depending on the format. That’s great. I like both players at their respective costs as the two major cogs in the Green Bay passing game.
