NE WR Jakobi Meyers - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Los Angeles Rams
Jakobi Meyers fell victim to the Patriots' extreme run-heavy tendencies in Week 13 when he only caught two balls for 15 yards, but he did receive six targets as he continues to be Cam Newton's top option in an extremely limited passing game. Meyers gets enough looks to warrant consideration in deep PPR leagues, but he will never be consistent enough to be a confident fantasy starter so long as the Patriots continue to pass at the lowest rate in the league. That holds especially true in Week 14 when Meyers will take on an elite Rams pass defense that includes shutdown corner Jalen Ramsey in the secondary. The tough matchup drops Meyers to WR4 status in Week 14.

NE WR Jakobi Meyers - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Los Angeles Chargers
Jakobi Meyers has returned WR2 production over the last six weeks as the focal point of the Patriots' low-volume passing game. Meyers has established himself as a target hog when the Patriots do decide to throw the ball, but we have also seen that New England's preferred style would be to run the ball as much as possible when matchup and game script allows for it. The Chargers have some solid defensive backs in their secondary, and teams have generally had more success attacking them on the ground. Meyers is a shaky WR3 at best in Week 13.

NE WR Jakobi Meyers - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Arizona Cardinals
Jakobi Meyers registered a fantasy dud in Week 11 where he only saw three targets, catching all three for 38 scoreless yards. With N'Keal Harry back in the lineup, Meyers worked in the slot much more frequently and that move resulted in far less usage, at least for one week. Whether that trend continues in Week 12 remains to be seen, but Arizona is not a particularly troubling matchup for wide receivers and game script projections suggest that the Patriots may need to throw more than usual this week. Meyers will always be a risky play in the ultra run-heavy New England offense, but he is not totally off the fantasy radar and could bounce back from his Week 11 dud on Sunday.

NE WR Jakobi Meyers - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Houston Texans
Jakobi Meyers continues to dominate wide receiver targets in New England. Meyers hasn't finished a game with fewer than six targets in a month and has a whopping 37 catches over his last four games. Meyers's target share over the last month is among that of the game's elite wide receivers. Of course, the limitations of the Patriots offense cap the ceiling of every pass catcher on the team, and there is a possibility the Patriots come out and dominate Houston on the ground which would spell trouble for Meyers's fantasy prospects. That being said, Meyers's volume is too good to ignore and he can be started as a flex play in a good matchup.

NE WR Jakobi Meyers - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at New York Jets
Jakobi Meyers has emerged as the top target in the New England passing game over the last two weeks. Meyers has 16 targets in his last two games, including 10 last week against the Bills. Of course, New England's run-heavy offense and general struggles scoring points mean Meyers will have a low floor in fantasy. Week 9's matchup against the Jets sets up anyone associated with the Patriots offense for a better week than usual, meaning Meyers has some flex appeal, especially in PPR leagues.

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.

NE WR Jakobi Meyers - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Cincinnati Bengals
Since the Patriots' Week 10 bye, Jacobi Meyers has been the Patriots' second-most viable fantasy asset at wide receiver behind Julian Edelman. This is reflected in his 58% snap percentage, second to Edelman, and his 0.15 PPR points per snap, also second to Edelman. Meyers' best weekly fantasy finish in that timeframe was the WR31 in Week 12 against Dallas, so he's still off-the-radar in all but the deepest of leagues. He has yet to score a touchdown in 2019, having drawn just four red-zone targets, but he was targeted nine times in Week 12 and seven times in Week 13. Meyers makes for a shaky start as a WR5 or low-end FLEX play.
