|Mike McCarthy praises WR Jarrett Boykin -- Thu Aug 28 1:15 pm --|
Boykin holds off rookie for No. 3 receiving role
|In February, coach Mike McCarthy predicted that Boykin, who would be entering his third season, had another performance jump in him.
On Tuesday, McCarthy left no doubt that he would think he was right.
"Clearly, Jarrett Boykin has taken the next step," McCarthy said. "I just love the way he plays. He's had an excellent camp. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)|
FF Today's Take: Boykin is clearly the No.3 receiver in Green Bay ahead of rookie Davante Adams. Aaron Rodgers' third option in the passing game is a viable one for fantasy owners, making Boykin a very solid WR4 in all formats. His current ADP sits at the bottom end of the 11th round.
|Packers aiming for 75 plays per game -- Mon Jul 14 4:10 pm --|
Broncos led the NFL in 2013 with 72.1
|Packers HC Mike McCarthy and his quarterback have one primary goal in mind for 2014: run 75 plays per game. Do that, and everything else -- big numbers for Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boykin and possibly one of the new rookie receivers; another 1,000-plus yard season for Eddie Lacy; solid pass protection - will fall into place.
The first hint of McCarthy's plans came in February, when he declared that he wants all of his running backs to turn into three-down players in order to limit the need for substitutions, which, of course, slows down the game. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: It is always notable when one of the league's best offenses wants to do something in order to give its best players more opportunities. Rodgers, Lacy, Cobb and Nelson are already in line for a ton of production regardless of the tempo Green Bay operates at, but a few more plays per game may allow players like Boykin and James Starks to become spot starters in deeper fantasy leagues and enable the stars to bump up their numbers a bit at the same time.
