Patriots' Josh Boyce has been a go-to WR during organized team activities

Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal wrote Wednesday that "[I]t's hard not to notice Josh Boyce @Josh_Boyce during the first weeks of the Patriots' organized team activities." Boyce has apparently been a "go-to target for Tom Brady" during team scrimmages and has been impressive on kick returns.
Boyce caught just nine passes in nine games as a rookie last year. He was a healthy scratch for some of those weeks and was put on injured reserve in December due to an ankle injury.
"There's been plenty of chatter about Boyce of late," Daniels wrote. "Will he give the Patriots a dominant kick returner? As one of the fastest players on the team, will this 2013 fourth-round pick develop into another weapon for Brady?"

Fantasy Analysis:

Organized team activities: Where players absolutely buried on the depth chart can be written up as if they are budding stars. Boyce has talent, and you know the Patriots seem to get the best out of their players. But in a best-case scenario, Boyce will open the season behind Julian Edelman @Edelman11, Aaron Dobson @aarondobson17, and Danny Amendola @DannyAmendola in the Patriots' pecking order for targets. That doesn't even include tight end Rob Gronkowski @RobGronkowski, who is trying to get healthy for Week 1. Boyce barely worth your time in dynasty formats.

Why isn't he buries behind Kembrell Thompkins too?

He might be, but it sounds like he and Thompkins are battling for one roster spot. Regardless, Boyce isn't worth your time.

Way too many targets on that team. Not touching any of them. Maybe Gronk if he's around in the 4th
