Miles Boykin has only earned 55 targets in his first two years in the league, so he can be avoided in nearly all redraft leagues. He's a fine hold in Dynasty if you have the roster spot, but with the additions of Sammy Watkins, Rashod Bateman and Tylan Wallace, Boykin's role is more likely to shrink than grow.
Boykin had one catch for 43 yards and a touchdown on two targets in Sunday's win over the Bengals. Boykin made the most of his only catch with a season-long 43-yard reception that also set his single-game season high for receiving yards. 2020 wasn't smooth sailing for Boykin as far as his development goes; he went from a rookie season with 13 catches for 198 yards and three touchdowns on 22 targets and 433 snaps to 19 catches for 266 yards and four touchdowns on 33 targets and 546 snaps. Boykin maintains an extremely low target rate per snap despite Baltimore struggling to find much production in the passing game beyond Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown. The Ravens face the Titans on Sunday in the AFC wild-card round.
Boykin caught one of two targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Giants. Boykin has failed to catch more than one pass in a game since Week 8. He's yet to surpass 38 yards in a game this year despite starting in 12 of 15 games.
Boykin had one catch for a four-yard touchdown on two targets Sunday against Jacksonville. Boykin was among three Ravens receivers to play over 50 percent of the snaps Sunday. He answered the bell with an acrobatic catch in the end zone for his third touchdown of the season and second in his last three games. Boykin still isn't drawing much target volume despite seeing his playing time trend back in the right direction. He hasn't had more than three targets in any game since Week 4 against Washington. Boykin and the Ravens host the Giants in Week 16.
Boykin was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. The Ravens will have a relatively healthy receiving corps with Hollywood Brown, Boykin and Dez Bryant all eligible to play Sunday. As a result, it's hard to imagine Boykin seeing another 40-plus offensive snaps like he has in the previous two weeks.
Coach John Harbaugh said Friday that Boykin is "on track" to be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports. Wide receivers Marquise Brown and James Proche received the same vote of confidence from Harbaugh. Boykin was listed as a close contact to an infected person, and as long as he continues to test negative, he'll be in the lineup for Sunday's AFC clash. Dez Bryant will also be back in the lineup, so Boykin could see his reps decrease after consecutive games with higher than a 70 percent snap share.
