WR - BAL - IR
Week 3 Outlook
Ravens moved WR Miles Boykin to the Reserve/Injured list. Boykin will be required to miss at least the first three weeks of the season, but will be eligible to return in Week 4.
Hamstrings linger so this move on top of the quiet training camp is worrisome. To this point, Boykin has been just another example of an exciting prospect not taking the next step. However, at just 24 years old, the potential is there. The question is whether or not he will take that next step and when.
Ravens WR Miles Boykin has had a quiet start to training camp and isn't as involved as he has been over the previous two seasons.
Boykin was a third-round pick out of Notre Dame in 2019 with tremendous size (6'4, 220) and athleticism (4.42 forty). Draft pundits believed he was raw but projected his talent could be cultivated at the next level. Unfortunately, Baltimore hasn't been known for developing WR talent, and Boykin is another example of an exciting prospect not taking the next step. Still, at just 24 years old, the potential is there. The question is whether or not he can put it all together and if that will happen in Baltimore.
Baltimore Ravens WR Miles Boykin will continue to be used as a wide receiver in the offense for 2021, as stated by Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.
After rumors circulated speculating about Boykin transitioning to a tight end role, Harbaugh brought clarity to the situation. "Are you saying he's going to run some of the routes that TEs do? Well, he already does that. He'll be running routes like that, but I certainly wouldn't call him a TE. He's a WR, he's not a TE." Boykin hauled in 19 receptions for 266 yards and four touchdowns across 13 games for Baltimore during the 2020 regular season and will continue to operate as a wide receiver in 2021.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Miles Boykin caught a 43-yard touchdown in a 38-3 win over the Bengals in Week 17.
Boykin was targeted just twice in the blowout win. The second-year wideout wraps up the regular season with just 18 catches and three TDs. He will face the Titans next week in the Wild Card round.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Miles Boykin caught 1-of-2 targets for 13 yards in a 27-13 win over the Giants in Week 16.
Boykin has been barely used for much of the season and now has to contend with Dez Bryant stealing red-zone looks from him. Boykin should not be used in fantasy in Week 17.
