N'Keal Harry, the 32nd overall choice this spring, is eligible to return from injured reserve after missing the first eight games. He returned to practice two weeks ago.
The story said Harry is a candidate to take over the X receiver spot for Josh Gordon. The Patriots have until Nov. 4 to activate him to the 53-man roster or he reverts to IR for the remainder of the season.
NE WR Jakobi Meyers - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Miami Dolphins
Jakobi Meyers has certainly done enough with his opportunities as an undrafted rookie wide receiver to expect his role to continue to grow in the New England offense next year. Right now, Meyers is the fourth wide receiver on the Patriots' depth chart, and that's just not fantasy-viable. Meyers saw just a 14% snap share in Week 15 and a 7% share in Week 16, and only an injury to one of the receivers ahead of him would make him a potential fantasy consideration during the NFL playoffs. For Week 17, Meyers is best left in the free-agent pool even against a Dolphins defense sporting the lowest-ranked wide receiver aFPA.
