Week 3 pickups: Part II

Injuries, surprise suspensions and poor performances, oh my! The emotions of fantasy football owners have been shoved into a blender and turned on high more times than could ever be expected in 2014, and we're only two and a half weeks into the regular season. Matt Asiata is now a household name due to the suspension of Adrian Peterson, and any sliver of fantasy production...

Solitary Confinement: Sherman Redefines Shutdown Corner

t’s lonely being the best. Just ask Richard Sherman, who spent the week one game against Green Bay all by himself on the left side of the field. Well, not entirely. He had Jarrett Boykin to keep him company. Boykin was tasked as the sacrificial lamb, lined up against Sherman almost every snap. He ran his assigned routes but never received a pass from Aaron Rodgers. In fact, no...

Paul Imig's Sept. 18 Packers mailbag

It's time for this week's edition of Packers Mailbag. Soon after Green Bay's game against the Detroit Lions, look for the form to submit questions for next week's mailbag. I love Jordy Nelson, but he can't do it all. With the best QB in the league, when will we get back to a scary receiver unit like Greg Jennings, Jermichael Finley, James Jones and Jordy Nelson...

Film Room: The Chargers’ blueprint for beating Richard Sherman

Week 1 against the Packers, Richard Sherman pitched a cornerback’s shutout: not only did he give up zero yards on zero catches, but he received zero targets as well. Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Packers basically conceded wide receiver Jarrett Boykin as a sacrifice, lining him up on Sherman’s customary side of the field (the offense’s right/defense’s left) on every play...

Davante Adams is Overtaking Jarrett Boykin as Green Bay Packers’ Third Receiver

In Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks, rookie Davante Adams was nowhere to be found. But that was true about the majority of the Green Bay Packers’ offense. Yet in Week 2 against the New York Jets, Adams made his presence felt and is now poised to overtake Jarrett Boykin as the third receiver on the Packers depth chart. Adams, a second-round pick in last year’s draft, only...

Flawed But Gutty Win

All wins are good wins in the National Football League – especially when you spot your opponent an 18 point lead – but Green Bay’s 31-24 victory over the Jets probably won’t spur fans to start making reservations in Arizona for the first week in February. That’s because the ’14 Packers look very much like the previous two editions that captured the NFC North, but then...

Aaron Rodgers to Richard Sherman: I hope you get some work

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers sacrificed No. 3 receiver Jarrett Boykin for the team’s season opening loss to the Seattle Seahawks, while avoiding Richard Sherman. Sherman, the very outspoken Seahawks cornerback was matched up on Boykin throughout the entire game and didn’t compile a single stat in Seattle’s win over Green Bay. Following the […]

What’s up with the Packers WRs?

It’s early, but I’m worried that the Packers might have a problem at wide receiver. Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are fine (more on them in a minute). The rest of the receiving corp? Uffda. Yes, Jarrett Boykin was the sacrificial lamb lined up against Richard Sherman against the Seahawks, but Aaron Rodgers never even bothered looking in his direction. Boykin played well with...

Do You Agree with Hines Ward That You Can’t Be #1 CB if You Don’t Cover #1 WR?

When you’re on top, everyone will look for a chance to try to bring you down. Right now Seahawks CB Richard Sherman is in this boat. Sherman is at the height of his career and has the most critics of anyone. The latest is coming from ex-Steelers WR Hines Ward. Ward is now an analyst for NBC and had some choice words for Sherman after the Packers game. “Sherman is on the cover...

Hines Ward slams Sherman over not covering best receiver

The Seattle Seahawks completely dismantled the Green Bay Packers in the season opener last night, and Richard Sherman was one of the first to talk about being great after the game. He is well known for his rant last season during the playoffs and over the past couple of years, calling himself the best cornerback in the game. Quite a few players around the league have taken to social...

Thinking 'Bout Thursday - Seahawks vs Packers

Thursday night kicked off the NFL season and wow did the Seattle Seahawks lay a beat down on the Green Bay Packers. I predicted the Seahawks would win the game, but only by 3 points, not 20. The Seahawks got a boost from the 12th man and once they got going, they never let up.#454652540 / gettyimages.comThe Seattle Seahawks offense appeared to be in midseason form. As I predicted...

Packers Game Plan a Reason for Failure Against Seattle

For the second consecutive season, the Green Bay Packers were forced to open up on the road against the defending NFC champions. And for the second consecutive season, their game plan left a lot to be desired.  After months of preparation, head coach Mike McCarthy failed to utilize a scheme that could overcome the domination that is the Seattle Seahawks defense. In route to a 36...

Packers coach: Jarrett Boykin has ‘taken the next step’

The Green Bay Packers felt comfortable in the offseason with letting wide receiver James Jones go in free agency because they believed Jarrett Boykin was ready to move up the depth chart. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday that the third-year wide receiver has taken the next step. “Clearly, Jarrett Boykin has taken the next step,” McCarthy said, via the Milwaukee Journal...

Boykin has since pulled away with the job. That fact was made evident in Green Bay's third...

Packers' Boykin making noise with his play

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Jarrett Boykin was talking about his least favorite topic: Jarrett Boykin. At a position known for its attention-loving players, there's only one reason the Green Bay Packers' third-year wide receiver had even agreed to an interview. ''You get fined for not doing them,'' he said with a slight smirk. It's not that Boykin is anti-social...

AMAZING PHOTO: Green Bay Packers reveal secret weapon at wide receiver

We know that the Green Bay Packers wide receiver corps is already stocked with talent. Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin are all Pro-Bowl quality players, and rookies like Devante Adams and Jeff Janis are looking strong so far. But what if the team has been hiding an ace up its sleeve? What if there’s a secret weapon at wide receiver that they’ve been hanging onto...

Jarrett Boykin is Fighting to be Green Bay Packers’ Third Wide Receiver

Jarrett Boykin got off to a bit of a slow start in training camp for the Green Bay Packers but as camp has progressed his game has picked up and he is starting to look more and more like the promising player that he was down the stretch last season when he caught 49 passes for 681 yards and three touchdowns. The third-year man, who signed with the Packers as a college free agent...

Green Bay Packers Fantasy Football Outlook

Aaron Rodgers played in just 9 games for the Green Bay Packers last season, well really just 8. On Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears, Rodgers attempted just 2 passes before being removed from the game. But even with Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien under center for half the season, rookie Eddie Lacy still managed to rush for over 1100 yards, scoring 11 TDs, and Jordy...

VIDEO: Davante Adams makes spectacular one-handed grab

The last thing that the other 31 NFL teams need is Aaron Rodgers with another talented target at wide receiver. Rodgers already has a tremendous corps to work with in Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Jarrett Boykin, but now it looks like you can add one more round to the chamber. Rookie wide receiver Davanta Adams has been very impressive thus far at Packers training camp, and yesterday...

Five undrafted free agents to watch at Packers training camp

“Homegrown” talent. It’s a phrase that gets thrown around often in the world of sports in terms of how to build a sustainable contender. In the NBA, the San Antonio Spurs are the case in point of this philosophy with their nucleus of life-timers Tony Parker, Manu Ginobli and Tim Duncan. In MLB, the Oakland A’s are often cited as the prime example, thanks to general manager...

Is Jarrett Boykin A Replacement Player?

Jarrett Boykin Wide receivers are known as the “shiny hood ornament” of the NFL because largely their production is tied to their quarterbacks; even a wide receiver like Larry Fitzgerald or Andre Johnson have had abysmal seasons with ineffectual quarterbacks behind center.  Furthermore, great/good wide receivers have left for greener pastures in free agency only to be met with...
