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..

October 28, 2019 12:28 PM
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.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Records just four snaps on offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers was on the field for just four of a possible 65 snaps on offense in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Bills, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Meyers -- who caught two passes for 38 yards in Week 3 -- wasn't targeted in the game. As the Patriots' No. 4 wideout behind Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and Phillip Dorsett, Meyers' fantasy value remains limited.

September 23, 2019 09:56 PM
Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Hauls in two passes Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers was on the field for 49 of a possible 77 snaps on offense in Sunday's 30-14 win over the Jets.

In the process, Meyers hauled in two of his three targets for 38 yards. With Antonio Brown no longer in the mix, Meyers now profiles as the Patriots' No. 4 wideout, behind Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and Phillip Dorsett. Meyers saw some added work Sunday, with Edelman getting banged up during the contest, but the UDFA out of NC State remains a speculative fantasy play, given where he currently slots in on the team's depth chart.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Meyers, who logged eight snaps in Week 1, will sit this one out as a healthy scratch, with Antonio Brown slated to make his debut with the Patriots on Sunday.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Hauls in 22-yarder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers logged eight of a possible 70 snaps on offense in Sunday's 33-3 win over the Steelers.

Meyers -- who parlayed a strong training camp into a roster spot -- caught his lone target Sunday for 22 yards in the contest. Looking ahead, however, it's unclear if he'll be active Week 2 against the Dolphins, with Antonio Brown poised to join the team's wideout mix.

Patriots' Jakobi Meyers: Another strong outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyers caught seven of 12 targets for 74 yards in Thursday night's 10-3 preseason win over the Panthers.

Meyers got work with New England's starting offense, but all three of his targets from Tom Brady resulted in incompletions. Additionally, a holding call on Meyers negated a 30-yard rush from tailback Sony Michel early on. Despite those shortcomings, Meyers overall put together a pretty good stat line, perhaps solidifying his spot on the regular season roster. With Julian Edelman and N'Keal Harry (leg) overcoming minor ailments and Josh Gordon and Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) working toward full availability, Meyers' impressive preseason could land him some Week 1 value, assuming he indeed makes the team.
