Until Boutte receives meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to their rosters.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Finishes up minicamp strong

    Boutte turned in a strong effort during Wednesday's mandatory minicamp session, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports. On the last day of minicamp practice prior to the Patriots' summer break, Boutte logged a team-high five catches during team drills, which Lazar notes included a sequence in which the 2023 sixth-round pick reeled in three consecutive scores. As the coming season approaches, Boutte will have to compete with the likes of JuJu Smith-Schuster, K.J. Osborn, Tyquan Thornton and Jalen Reagor for slotting in a wideout corps that also includes Kendrick Bourne (knee) -- who is recovering from an ACL tear -- as well as likely roster locks in the youthful trio of DeMario Douglas, Ja'Lynn Polk and Javon Baker. Additionally, it's possible that Boutte faces NFL discipline stemming from his January arrest and subsequent charges of computer fraud and gaming prohibited for persons under 21, which occurred during his time in college at LSU.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Limited role as rookie

    Boutte finished the 2023 season with two catches (on seven targets) for 19 yards in five games with the Patriots. During his rookie season, Boutte logged just 117 snaps on offense, per Evan Lazar of the team's official site, but the 2023 sixth-rounder is viewed as a player with some untapped potential, given the promise that he displayed early on during his college career at LSU. Looking ahead to the 2024 season, Boutte will look to carve out a role in New England's offense, but at this stage where he lands in the wideout pecking order hinges in large part on the team's upcoming roster moves via free agency and the draft.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Won't play Sunday

    Boutte has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills due to an illness, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports. With Boutte unavailable, DeVante Parker, Demario Douglas, Jalen Reagor and Tyquan Thornton are in line to handle the Patriots' WR duties Sunday. Boutte's next chance to see game action will arrive in the team's season finale next weekend against the Jets.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Won't play Thursday

    Boutte (shoulder) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Steelers. Boutte has been active for the Patriots' last two games and recorded two catches for 19 yards on three targets, but he's nursing the shoulder injury coming out of this past Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Chargers. Though he was listed as a limited participant on practice reports issued Tuesday and Wednesday, Boutte ultimately wasn't able to overcome the shoulder issue on a short week and will be in street clothes Thursday. Fellow wideout Demario Douglas (concussion) has also been ruled out for Week 14, while DeVante Parker (knee) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) are both listed as questionable.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Increases activity level

    Boutte (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's injury report. Boutte was listed as a DNP on Monday's practice estimate, so this is a step in the right direction for the rookie receiver. However, it's not clear if the Patriots ran a typical practice or walkthrough Tuesday, but he'll have another opportunity to ramp up his activity level Wednesday. He should still be considered questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Steelers.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Ruled out for Sunday

    Boutte (shoulder/illness) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Chargers. The rookie wideout is in line to miss his ninth game of the year Sunday, as he continues to recover from an illness and a shoulder issue. Boutte has hauled in two of his seven targets on the year, playing a total of 92 snaps (all on offense).

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Not spotted at practice

    Boutte (shoulder/illness) is not present for the portion of Friday's practice open to the media, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Boutte appears to be sidelined at practice again after having begun the week with a non-contact session Wednesday before sitting out Thursday. He is now listed as dealing with an illness in addition to his shoulder injury. If Boutte isn't able to suit up Sunday versus the Chargers, Jalen Reagor will have an avenue to avoiding the inactive list.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Sits out Thursday's practice

    Boutte (shoulder) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Boutte was a limited participant Wednesday in the Patriots' first Week 13 practice while sporting a non-contact jersey, but he took a step back in terms of activity a day later. At this stage, the rookie out of LSU's availability for this Sunday's game against the Chargers is looking uncertain. Boutte was active for just the third time this season in this past Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Giants, logging 11 snaps on offense while finishing with one catch for eight yards on two targets.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Limited at practice

    Boutte (shoulder) was a limited participant at the Patriots' practice Wednesday. Boutte opened the week by logging a limited practice session Wednesday as he's dealing with an apparent shoulder injury. The rookie played 11 offensive snaps in Week 12 versus the Giants, reeling in one pass for eight yards and he'll look to increase his workload at practice the rest of the week in order to be available for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Inactive Sunday

    Boutte (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Commanders, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports. Though Kendrick Bourne (knee/IR) and DeVante Parker (concussion) are out Sunday, Boutte won't suit up in Week 9. As a result, the Patriots' WR corps versus Washington will feature Demario Douglas, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Jalen Reagor and Tyquan Thornton.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Out Week 7

    Boutte (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Bills, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. After limited practice in consecutive days to finish the week, a hamstring injury will keep Boutte from suiting up this week. He will now set his sights on recovering in time for the Patriots Week 8 contest in Miami.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Questionable Sunday

    Boutte (hamstring) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Bills, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports. Boutte popped up on New England's injury report this week with a hamstring injury, which held him to limited participation in both Thursday and Friday's practices. The rookie wide receiver out of LSU has appeared in only one game this year, with that being the Patriots' Week 1 loss to the Eagles. He was unable to haul in any of his four targets in that one appearance.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Tending to hamstring injury

    Boutte (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice Thursday. Boutte presumably sustained the hamstring injury during practice, as he was not listed on New England's injury report Wednesday. He's played in just one game in 2023, failing to haul in any of his four targets in that contest.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Inactive versus Jets

    Boutte (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets. With Boutte inactive for the second week in a row, the Patriots' Week 3 WR corps will feature the quartet of DeVante Parker, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Kendrick Bourne and Demario Douglas. For now, Boutte is off the fantasy radar until injuries hit.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Good to go for Week 2

    Boutte (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Boutte was a limited participant in practices Wednesday and Thursday but upgraded to full participation Friday, clearing the way for him to suit up Week 2. Fellow wide receiver DeVante Parker (knee) is listed as questionable after three limited practices. While Parker was sidelined for the Patriots' Week 1 loss to the Eagles, Boutte served as the former's primary replacement in the lineup and played 55 of New England's 80 offensive snaps, but he was held without a catch on four targets. Boutte would likely see a dramatic downturn in playing time if Parker is cleared to play Sunday.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Could benefit from Parker absence

    Boutte may be in store for added snaps Sunday against the Eagles with DeVante Parker (knee) listed as questionable for the contest but likely to sit out the season opener, Karen Guregian of The Springfield Republican reports. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Kendrick Bourne should be locked in as the Patriots' primary receivers in two-wideout sets sans Parker, but Boutte and fellow rookie Demario Douglas should see extra reps in three-wide sets. Meanwhile, Mike Gesicki could also get a bump in playing time in the likelihood that New England makes more use of two-tight-end formations with Parker out of the lineup. Though Douglas drew the more rave reviews of the two rookies during training camp and the preseason, the 6-foot, 195-pound Boutte is more suited to play snaps on the perimeter and may be more capable of filling Parker's role as New England's top downfield threat.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Looking good for Week 1 roster

    Boutte played just one drive at the start of Friday's preseason loss to Tennessee, suggesting he's in good position for a roster spot, according to ESPN's Zack Cox. Fellow sixth-round pick Demario Douglas appears to be in even better position, as he was one of the many players the Patriots rested Friday night. Boutte ran only one route, so his lack of statistics in the preseason finale isn't a bad sign. He won't necessarily have a role Week 1 against the Eagles but at least seems headed for a spot on the roster.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Goes to New England 187th overall

    The Patriots selected Boutte in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 187th overall. Boutte (5-foot-11, 195 pounds) was standout recruit for LSU who at one point appeared a potential star after a brilliant first two seasons with the Tigers. Boutte drew 131 targets in those first 16 games, catching 83 passes for 1,243 yards and 14 touchdowns all before turning 20. Unfortunately he fell off in his 2022 junior season, logging just 48 receptions for 538 yards and two touchdowns on 74 targets, and from there began a rising sense of concern about Boutte's character off the field. He struggled at the combine, testing below average across the board and testing truly awful in the jumps (29-inch vertical, 118-inch broad jump). Boutte's workout was so poor that it makes it difficult to believe he was training properly -- it's almost inconceivable that Boutte produced the way he did in his first two seasons while running and jumping as poorly as he did at the combine. It's possible that Boutte could prove to be a steal for New England down the road, but for now he's behind JuJu Smith-Schuster, DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne and Tyquan Thornton on the team's WR depth chart.
