Boykin emerging as Packers No. 4 WR-- Thu Aug 22 6:05 pm --
WR coach pleased with former UDFA
Packers WR coach Edgar Bennett was asked how he viewed his group following the Rams' preseason game on Saturday and immediately brought up Jarrett Boykin. Boykin practiced well this week, further strengthening his grip on the No. 4 berth. As a rookie, Boykin played 92 snaps and caught five passes. On Saturday night, Boykin started and played 28 snaps.

FF Today's Take:Boykin has four catches for 41 yards through two preseason games and has been getting first-team reps with Jordy Nelson (knee) sidelined and Randall Cobb (biceps) day-to-day. Fourth receivers have shown a tendency to be valuable in fantasy recently and Aaron Rodgers stated earlier in the summer that he expected Boykin to take a firm hold of that spot. With two receivers already battling injuries, his is a name to monitor.
