Boykin certainly looks the part of an NFL receiver, which is why the Ravens used a third-round pick on him. He probably didn't produce up to expectations in college, which is a concern, but his skill set is high. He is a big receiver with good hands and plus speed for a man of his size. Boykin could quickly move up the depth chart and become a starter at some point this season. The Ravens have openings at receiver and Boykin is as talented as any receiver on their roster.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Even if he ends up starting, Boykin doesn't have great value in this very run-heavy offense. His production will be sporadic. Expect around 30 receptions for 400 yards and a few scores, making him a reach for most fantasy teams.

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Miles Boykin was targeted nine times in Thursday's preseason win over the Jaguars, finishing with four catches for 39 yards. Boykin is expected to be a lock to make the team's final roster, so it'll be interesting to see if this level of usage keeps up as teams start to play their starters more in the second and third preseason game. He's likely not going to be an impact player in re-draft leagues, but if Lamar Jackson progresses a little more as a passer this year, he could have some deep league intrigue by the end of the year.
The Baltimore Ravens signed rookie wide receiver Miles Boykin to a four-year contract this week. Boykin signed his four-year rookie deal, the team announced on Wednesday, and the club now has all of its rookies signed just in time for them to report to training camp. Boykin, a third-round pick out of Notre Dame, missed time during offseason training activities (OTAs) due to a hamstring injury. He will be jockeying with Willie Snead, Seth Roberts and Chris Moore for a meaningful role in the Baltimore offense to start.
Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Miles Boykin (hamstring) was back in a limited capacity at practice on Thursday. Boykin should be full-go by the time training camp comes around. The talented receiver should be in three-wide sets in his rookie season, but he's a long shot to return relevant numbers in redraft leagues in an offense that will be focused on running the football as much as possible.
