WR - PIT
Week 5 Outlook
According to NFL reporter Mike Garafolo, on Tuesday, the Steelers claimed former Ravens WR Miles Boykin off waivers.
The former Notre Dame standout was let go by the Ravens late last week but was claimed off waivers by the Steelers on Tuesday. The former third-round selection in the 2019 draft had a solid start to his career, starting 11 games and scoring three touchdowns his rookie season. Unfortunately with a growing WR room and some injuries, the veteran was pushed out of the WR rather quickly. He finished his Ravens career with 33 receptions for 470 yards and four touchdowns. His role with the Steelers will likely be the fourth WR on the team behind Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson, and Gunner Olszewsk.
Multiple teams are saying the Ravens are actively shopping Miles Boykin, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS.
Boykin is owed $2.5 million this season and caught only one pass in 2021 while spending most of his time on special teams. Baltimore seems satisfied with their receiving corps and perhaps are looking to move him in anticipation of him not breaking camp with the team.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Miles Boykin caught a six-yard pass in a 34-6 win over the Chargers in Week 6.
Boykin was making his season debut after missing the first five games with a hamstring issue. He is not expected to be a major part of the Baltimore passing offense this season.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Miles Boykin is active for Monday Night Football against the Indianapolis Colts.
Boykin does not always make an impact as a receiver but is highly valued for his blocking prowess. The Ravens receiver corps is finally coming close to having all of their wideouts healthy, with Rashod Bateman expected to make his debut in Week 6. Boykin is not on the fantasy radar for Week 5.
The Ravens didn't add WR Miles Boykin (hamstring) to the 53-man roster for Sunday's Week 4 game against the Broncos.
Rashod Bateman wasn't activated either, which means both of their 2021 debuts will have to wait at least another week. Boykin is unlikely to make a fantasy impact this season.
