2021 Fantasy Outlook
Had the Packers known that Aaron Rodgers would threaten a holdout, it seems unlikely that Boyle would have been allowed to leave Green Bay. Alas, the Packers let Boyle walk, and Detroit subsequently made him the 10th-highest paid backup quarterback in the NFL. However, despite Jared Goff coming off thumb surgery, the move isn't one that will allow Boyle to compete for a starting role. While Boyle may find that opportunity again next offseason when he hits the open market, an injury to Goff is likely his only path to playing time in 2021. Read Past Outlooks

Headed for No. 2 role Week 12

November 25, 2021
Boyle is active as the backup quarterback for Thursday's contest against the Bears behind starter Jared Goff (oblique), who is set to start in his return from a one-game absence, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Though Goff was one of the NFL's least productive starting quarterbacks through the first 10 weeks of the season, he still performed far better than Boyle, who returned from injured reserve last week and picked up his first NFL start while Goff was sidelined with the oblique injury. In Detroit's 13-10 loss to the Browns, Boyle completed 15 of 23 attempts for 77 yards (3.3 YPA), no touchdowns and two interceptions, with most of the Lions' offensive production on the day coming via the ground game from D'Andre Swift (14 carries for 136 yards and a touchdown). Boyle's rough outing wasn't enough for him to lose out on the No. 2 job behind Goff, who is slated to start despite likely being less than 100 percent. Instead, David Blough -- who backed up Boyle last week -- will be on the inactive list Thanksgiving Day as the Lions' No. 3 signal-caller.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2018
Boyle saw his first NFL action in 2019, taking the field on three separate occasions, albeit all in garbage time. His chances of sticking around in Green Bay for another year will depend on whether the team keeps three quarterbacks, as Aaron Rodgers and first-rounder Jordan Love are part of the same roster.
Boyle signed with the Packers during the offseason as an undrafted free agent and slotted in as the team's fourth quarterback. He is a long shot to break camp with the team, but chances are he sticks around on the practice squad.
