Green Bay is getting a bit thin at wide receiver. With Randall Cobb on short-term injured reserve and James Jones listed as questionable heading into Week 7, wide receiver Jarrett Boykin could be pressed into the No. 2 spot. The second-year wideout saw six targets last week, but only caught one pass for 43 yards.
I'm a Virginia Tech grad, and I watched Boykin for four great years and the young man is actually the Hokies' all-time leader in all sorts of receiver categories. The thing about Boykin is he possesses below average speed and will likely struggle at times with separation. He's in the NFL because he has excellent, reliable hands, can run pretty good routes and he has some size. Can he really replace Cobb or Jones? More Jones, who is still healing a knee injury, than Cobb. Boykin is worth a speculative add in just about every league since this is the Green Bay offense and guys can put up big stats, but I wouldn't anticipate a huge impact.
