Draft note
by John Paulsen
Meyers saw 23.6% of the targets, 25.4% of the receptions and 27.3% of the yards last season as Patriots’ leading receiver. The team added Nelson Agholor, Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry and Kendrick Bourne this offseason, so he obviously has more competition for targets, though reports indicate that he has been the best and most consistent receiver in camp. Three different beat writers (Jeff Howe, Tom Curran and Andrew Callahan) confirmed that Meyers has been the standout. Another indicator in his favor: His 2.24 yard per route run was the 12th-best among the 112 eligible receivers at PFF. Now that Mac Jones has been named the starter, Meyers could turn into an every-week fantasy starter.

NE WR Jakobi Meyers - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Jets

I think it's safe to say the Patriots really like Jakobi Meyers. Meyers played every single snap in three of the Patriots final four games in 2020 and started 2021 playing 74 of 75 snaps against the Dolphins. He turned those snaps into six catches on nine targets, both either led the team or tied for the team lead in Week 1. Mac Jones built a connection with Meyers in training camp and the preseason and that rolled over into the regular season. This week, it's the Jets, who allowed 80 yards on six catches to DJ Moore and a 57-yard bomb to Robby Anderson. Meyers' ceiling might be limited due to the presence of Nelson Agholor and the tight ends, but the early trend is that Meyers might be Jones' favorite receiver on the outside.
