A third round pick used for depth and future need probably doesn’t sound like Fantasy Football gold, but Miles Boykin has the making of a late-season star.
When talking about Fantasy Football relevant Baltimore Ravens, to say Miles Boykin is an after-thought would be an understatement. Mark Ingram, Mark Andrews, and Lamar Jackson dominate the conversation, while Marquise Brown and Gus Edwards are also thought of highly. Justice Hill and Hayden Hurst are sleepers, but the deepest sleeper of this group is undoubtedly Miles Boykin.

No other wide receiver for the Ravens is being slept on more than Boykin is. It’s unfortunate and pretty depressing. While Boykin gets overlooked, I sit here and wonder who else on this team can be a more reliable player down the stretch for Baltimore than Boykin.
By that, I mean there’s not any players on the Ravens that I think could get hotter in the latter half of the season like Miles Boykin will.
As of now, Boykin looks to be the team’s fourth, maybe even fifth, receiver on the depth chart. Willie Snead, Marquise Brown, and Chris Moore are safely ahead of him with a chance that Seth Roberts may also have a bigger role initially. But down the stretch, my money is on Boykin to emerge as one of the team’s top-three options at wide receiver.
There’s plenty of optimism to back up the claim that Boykin could emerge. For one, he has perhaps the best hands of any of the receivers on the team. Plus, Boykin’s massive 6’4” 220-lbs. frame gives him box-out abilities and could possibly make him a dynamic red-zone threat.
When it comes to intangibles, Miles Boykin checks off a majority of the boxes. The tricky thing now is how to assess his Fantasy Football value and if he’s worth stashing away or just monitoring on the waiver wire.
To me, if you have the space go and get him now. Otherwise, keep Boykin on your radar all year long. Don’t be shocked if he starts catching fire down the stretch.
It might take Miles Boykin a few weeks to get completely adjusted to the offense, but once he’s in it’ll be difficult to get him off the field. This young man is uber talented and will prove to be a diamond in the rough for both the Baltimore Ravens and your Fantasy Football team.
Final projections: 45 receptions, 600 receiving yards, 5 touchdowns
