Meyers caught six of seven targets for 68 yards and threw a 19-yard touchdown in Sunday's 28-14 win over the Jets. He also rushed once for seven yards in the season finale. Meyers spent his freshman season at NC State as a quarterback before converting to wide receiver, and he showed off his passing skills on a trick play in the third quarter, finding Cam Newton for the game-tying touchdown. He finishes the season as New England's leader in both catches (59) and receiving yards (729), but Meyers is yet to catch a touchdown through two NFL seasons. The Patriots will likely look to upgrade their underwhelming receiving corps in the offseason, but Meyers should be a part of the team's equation at wide receiver after his breakout sophomore season.
Meyers caught four of six targets for 45 yards in Monday night's 38-9 loss to the Bills. Meyers led the Pats in receiving on a night when the team made an in-game quarterback change from Cam Newton to Jarrett Stidham, with neither QB proving to be effective. Given that dire situation, it's tough to rely on Meyers for production, but his status atop New England's depth chart as well as a favorable matchup against the Jets at least offers some promise ahead of Week 17.
Meyers reeled in seven of 10 targets for 111 yards and lost one fumble during Sunday's 22-12 loss to Miami. Meyers' third-quarter giveaway didn't come back to haunt New England, as the Dolphins were forced into a punt just three plays later. With that in mind, the 24-year-old's Week 15 outing will go down as one of his most impressive of the 2020 campaign, as he eclipsed the century mark in receiving for the second time this season. A Week 16 matchup against Buffalo could allow Meyers to expand on a noteworthy Week 8 performance in a loss to the division rivals in which he notched six catches for 58 yards over 10 targets.
Meyers brought in four of five targets for 47 yards in the Patriots' 24-3 loss to the Rams on Thursday night. The second-year wideout managed to put together a serviceable night relative to opportunity, recording multiple receptions for the eighth straight contest. Meyers hasn't come close to matching the career-best 12 receptions and 169 yards he generated versus the Jets in Week 9, but he's posted a 19-211 line on 27 targets in the subsequent five contests, acceptable numbers considering how erratic Cam Newton's play has been under center. With Jarrett Stidham replacing Newton late in Thursday night's game, it remains to be seen if Meyers will be catching passes from a different quarterback in a Week 15 divisional battle against the Dolphins on Sunday, Dec. 20.
Meyers caught two of six targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 45-0 win over the Chargers. Meyers accounted for nearly a third of the team's targets but gained positive yardage on only one play as the running game and defense took center stage in the blowout. He came into the game having topped 50 yards in five of his last six games, and his relative lack of production in this one can mostly be attributed to the lopsided score. With that said, Meyers will be hard-pressed to produce big numbers in Thursday's matchup against the talented Rams secondary.
