Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Down day despite Newton's success
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers caught all three of his targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to Houston.

Cam Newton threw for 365 yards but didn't pay much attention to his favorite target from recent weeks. Meyers finished fifth on the team in receiving yards and tied for fourth in targets, while Damiere Byrd paced the team with 132 receiving yards and a touchdown. Meyers will likely draw the attention of top Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson in Week 12, which will make the No. 1 receiver in New England's inconsistent-at-best passing attack a risky option coming off this disappointing outing.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Clearly Newton's top option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers caught five of seven targets for 59 yards while also throwing a 24-yard touchdown on his lone passing attempt in Sunday's 23-17 win over Baltimore.

Meyers scored his first NFL touchdown in the 22nd game of his professional career, but it did not come the way most would have expected. The former high-school quarterback received a backwards pass from Cam Newton before planting his feet and throwing a Russell Wilson-esque rainbow that fell into Rex Burkhead's bread basket in the end zone. The trick play was a treat to witness, but the important news for fantasy owners was that Meyers paced all Patriot receivers in targets, catches and receptions for the fourth week in a row. In fact, the 24-year-old was the only wide receiver to be targeted by Cam Newton the entire evening. Meyers is averaging 6.8 receptions and 86.5 yards in the four games since becoming a starter, which should make him relevant in almost any format, especially if he can start to find the end zone as a receiver. He will look to do just that in a favorable matchup against the Texans on Sunday.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Career-best performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers caught 12 of 14 targets for 169 yards in Monday night's 30-27 win over the Jets.

He put together by far the best showing of his young career, accounting for the majority of Cam Newton's 274 passing yards. Meyers was targeted on 40 percent of Newton's 35 attempts, and caught nearly everything thrown his way. Although his longest reception went for 33 yards, Meyers' most important play came on a 20-yard reception that put New England in range for the game-winning field goal with three seconds remaining. Following such a great performance, Meyers' stock is undoubtedly on the rise in advance of Week 10, but a tough matchup against the Ravens represents a stark contrast from facing the still-winless Jets.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Leading receiver in Week 8 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers caught six of 10 targets for 58 yards and added a two-point conversion in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Bills.

Meyers has emerged as the favorite target for struggling quarterback Cam Newton with Julian Edelman (knee) and N'Keal Harry (concussion) both unavailable, leading the team in targets, catches and receiving yards. None of Meyers' gains went for more than 16 yards, but he caught a key two-point conversion to tie the score in the third quarter. Meyers should continue to play a prominent role on his 24th birthday against the porous Jets secondary in Week 9.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Extended snaps await Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers is expected to pick up extra snaps Sunday against the Bills with Julian Edelman (knee) set to miss the contest, Dave Green of NBC Sports Boston reports.

The Patriots' No. 4 receiver heading into last week's game against the 49ers, Meyers was thrust into a larger role after starter N'Keal Harry left the contest early with a concussion. Meyers proceeded to play 79 percent of the offensive snaps in the 33-6 loss, finishing the day with four receptions for 60 yards on six targets. With Edelman being ruled out, Meyers should hold down a regular spot in three-wide sets for the second straight game, and the North Carolina State product could have an even clearer path to steady targets if Harry -- who has missed the Patriots' first two practices of Week 8 -- is also sidelined. Along with Meyers, Damiere Byrd and Gunner Olszewski should take on expanded roles in New England's passing attack.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Leads team in receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers caught four of six targets for 60 yards and carried one time for two yards during Sunday's 33-6 loss to the 49ers.

Meyers hadn't seen action in over a month coming in, but he found a way to lead the team in all major receiving categories despite Cam Newton finishing with under 100 passing yards on the day. Newton was ultimately benched in favor of Jarrett Stidham after his third turnover, and Meyers managed to snare a pass from him as well. Given the team's struggles under center and Meyers' inactivity for much of the season, he won't take a great deal of fantasy appeal into next Sunday's meeting with the Bills.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Sees just seven snaps Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers was on the field for seven of a possible 64 snaps on offense in Sunday's 21-11 win over the Dolphins, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Meyers, who was not targeted Week 1, has limited fantasy value so long as he remains behind Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry and Damiere Byrd in New England's wide receiver pecking order.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Catches 26 passes as a rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers finished the 2019 regular season with 26 catches (on 41 targets) for 359 yards in 15 games.

Meyers stuck around after making the team as an undrafted rookie and even managed to log a few PPR-worthy efforts in the process. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder probably did enough to make the team again in 2020, but it's possible he'll have to fight to keep his slot in New England's wide receiver corps, depending on the team's offseason moves.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Hauls in three passes Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers was on the field for 14 of a possible 73 snaps on offense in Saturday's 24-17 win over the Bills, en route to catching all three of his targets for 25 yards.

Mohamed Sanu (70), Julian Edelman (52) and N'Keal Harry (37) all saw more snaps than Meyers in Week 16, and in such a context Meyers will be a speculative fantasy option in both Week 17 and the NFL postseason.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Relegated to special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers was not targeted during Sunday's 34-13 win over Cincinnati and logged just seven offensive snaps during the contest.

Meyers was averaging 51.7 yards per game over his prior three outings, but New England went in a different direction Sunday. The Patriots are notorious for changing things up to suit the week's matchup, but -- after recording just one catch in Week 14 -- Meyers' seven offensive snaps Sunday seem like part of a downturn. He's a very tough play Saturday, especially against Buffalo's third-ranked pass defense.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Catches 35-yard pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers was on the field for 38 of a possible 67 snaps on offense in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Chiefs, en route to hauling in one of his three target for 35 yards.

Looking ahead, Meyers profiles as a hit-or-miss fantasy option, as QB Tom Brady has yet to develop a consistent rapport in the passing game with anyone other than Julian Edelman and running back James White.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Targeted seven times in Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers was on the field for 61 of a possible 87 snaps on offense in Sunday's 28-22 loss to the Texans.

Meyers caught three of his seven targets for 46 yards Sunday, but looking ahead, he could see his workload reduced once Mohamed Sanu (19 snaps) and Phillip Dorsett (22 snaps) are closer to 100 percent.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Catches four passes for 74 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers logged 54 of a possible 70 snaps on offense in Sunday's 13-9 win over the Cowboys, en route to catching four passes on nine targets for a season-high 74 yards.

Meyers' increased involvement in the Patriots offense was the result of both Phillip Dorsett (concussion) and Mohamed Sanu (ankle) being inactive Sunday. Rookie N'Keal Harry also saw added work Week 12, recording 57 offensive snaps and turning his only catch (on four targets) into a 10-yard TD. Meyers' fantasy import in next Sunday's game against the Texans hinges on the status of Dorsett and Sanu, but he's at least demonstrated that he can produce when afforded ample playing time.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Targeted twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers caught one of his two targets for a seven-yard gain during Sunday's 17-10 win over the Eagles.

He followed up a one-snap, no-target outing in Week 9 with a 19-snap, one-catch game against the Eagles. Granted, that total is far from noteworthy from a fantasy perspective, but Meyers has shown to be serviceable when given the opportunity -- especially as an undrafted rookie. He may get that opportunity in Week 12 with the Patriots potentially missing Phillip Dorsett (concussion) and with Mohamed Sanu (ankle) not 100 percent. Depending on their health, Meyers could see a few more targets against Dallas' seventh-ranked pass defense.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Sees just one snap in Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers logged just one of a possible 67 snaps on offense in Sunday's 37-20 loss to the Ravens.

The Patriots ran plenty of three-receiver sets Sunday, but turned almost exclusively to Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu and Phillip Dorsett on that front. Meyers thus slots in no higher than New England's No. 4 option at the position, and he could drop another notch once rookie N'Keal Harry re-joins the mix, possibly as soon as Week 11, following the team's bye week..

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: One catch in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers logged 25 a possible 69 snaps on offense in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Browns, en route to catching one of his two targets for five yards.

With Mohamed Sanu now in the team's wide receiver mix along with Julian Edelman and Phillip Dorsett, Meyers slots in no higher than New England's No. 4 option at the position, given that N'Keal Harry (ankle) could join the mix as soon as this coming weekend's tilt against the Ravens.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Catches all his targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers caught all five of his targets for 47 yards in Monday night's 33-0 win over the Jets.

Meyers replaced the injured Josh Gordon (knee/ankle) in New England's lineup and responded by hauling in every pass quarterback Tom Brady threw his way. In doing so, he tied top option Julian Edelman in receiving yardage, trailing only James White in the category. That also came while fellow wideout Phillip Dorsett returned from a two-game absence. As he showed during the preseason, Meyers can be a consistent complement despite his rookie status, but his outlook for Week 8 against the Browns could again depend on whether or not Gordon can play.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Expanded role in Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers secured all four of his targets for 54 yards in the Patriots' 35-14 win over the Giants on Thursday.

Meyers slotted in as New England's No. 3 receiver to start the contest with Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) sidelined, and he bumped up to No. 2 after Josh Gordon exited the game in the first half with a knee injury. The rookie checked in second behind Julian Edelman in receiving yardage and set career highs across the board in the contest. Meyers typically operates as the No. 4 option when the Patriots wide receiver corps is at full health, a role he'll return to if both Dorsett and Gordon are able to return to health over the next 10 days leading up to the team's Week 7 matchup against the Jets.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Opportunity knocks in Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers is in line to serve as the Patriots' No. 3 wideout Thursday against the Giants, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

With Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) ruled out, Meyers should be on tap for the best opportunity of his young career to deliver fantasy value. The rookie is still best viewed as a speculative option for deeper leagues, given that he'll be working alongside higher-volume targets in Julian Edelman (chest) and Josh Gordon (knee).

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Records 36 snaps in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers was on the field for 36 of a possible 78 snaps on offense in Sunday's 33-7 win over Washington, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Meyers caught one of his two targets in the game for six yards. His uptick in snaps (after recording four in Week 4) was the result of Phillip Dorsett sustaining a hamstring injury Sunday. It remains to be seen if Dorsett will be able to bounce back quick enough to play Thursday night against the Giants, but even he sits out that contest, Meyers would remain a speculative Week 6 fantasy option while working behind fellow receivers Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon.
