WR - NE
Week 4 Outlook
Expert NoteView More Notes
Kayshon Boutte had the opportunity of a lifetime as a true freshman, stepping immediately into the WR1 chair for the Tigers in 2020, with Ja'Marr Chase opting out to prepare for the NFL Draft. Boutte led LSU with 76 targets, converting his volume into a 22% dominator rating at age 18. In his last game played, he caught 14 balls for 308 receiving yards and three TDs. Terrace Marshall Jr. would enter the NFL the following year, cementing Boutte's status as the team's alpha WR1 in 2021 when he posted another 22% dominator rating in just six games played. When you consider the games that Boutte was healthy in, his dominator rating skyrockets to 41%. But the ankle injury he suffered seriously took its toll on Boutte, who failed to show the same elite playmaking ability he did his first two seasons at LSU in 2022. Although he tied a bow on his college career strong against Georgia, commanding a season-high 11 targets for 107 yards and one touchdown. If Boutte is finally back to 100% health as an NFL rookie, he will undoubtedly be a steal in rookie drafts. The 5-foot-11 and 195-pound wide receiver will not even be 21 years old by the time he is drafted.
However, his poor testing will definitely sour some teams.
Boutte performed poorly at the Scouting Combine. It was a downright horrible performance across the board for the once highly-touted prospect out of LSU. He finished last in the vertical jump (2nd percentile) and second to last in the broad jump (30th percentile). The former Tiger also underwhelmed with a 4.50 40-time at 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds. And you know it's really bad when his closest comps are guys that only degenerates would know about. Who else remembers LaVon Brazill or Rashawn Scott? Me either. His massive fall since his freshman season will no doubt hurt his draft capital come April. Boutte's early-age production remains salivating, but fantasy managers need to proceed with caution amid the flurry of red flags.

Boutte was not listed on the injury report this week and will be a healthy inactive for the second week in a row. Fantasy managers should expect Boutte to continue to be a healthy scratch as long as the current group of Patriots’ wide receivers can remain healthy.
