New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers registered four receptions for a team-high 45 yards on six targets in Week 16 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Meyers is finishing up strong for PPR fantasy owners, as he has four or more receptions in each of the past three games, and he has managed at least three catches in nine of his past 10 outings. He will be the top Patriots receiver to target in 2021 for fantasy purposes barring any offseason personnel additions or incoming high draft picks at the position.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers registered seven receptions for a game-high 111 yards on 10 targets in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Meyers posted his second 100-yard game of the season, and it was his biggest production since his career-high 169 yards in a Monday night game against the Jets on Nov. 9. That was also the last time he was targeted more than 10 times in a game. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 16 against the Bills in another Monday night game.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers had four receptions for 47 yards in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted five times.
Huddle Up: Coming off a disappointing Week 13, Meyers posted his sixth game of 40-plus yards in his last eight. That's not starting fantasy production to be sure, but he could offer depth value in larger leagues.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers posted two catches for 15 yards on six targets in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Meyers saw his streak of three or more receptions snapped at six games. He had been developing quite the rapport with Cam Newton, but he was off in this one. He remains more of a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 14 against the Rams on Thursday night.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers posted team highs with five catches and 52 yards in Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals on six targets.
Huddle Up: Meyers has developed a pretty decent rapport with Cam Newton. The former N.C. State standout has three or more grabs in six straight games to emerge as a solid WR4 or flex option in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams. The Patriots travel to meet the Chargers in Week 13.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers caught three passes for 38 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 11. He was targeted three times during the game.
Huddle Up: Meyers has been one of the major factors in the passing game over the last month but was held to his second-lowest yardage total of the season. He could still be a possible flex option in deeper leagues next week but is not a must-start option.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers played 57 of the 58 offensive snaps in Week 10, and Mike Reiss of ESPN.com believes Meyers has 'earned the trust' of the coaches and is a 'safe bet' to remained involved going forward.
Huddle Up: Meyers is averaging 6.8 catches and 86.5 receiving yards over the last four games, becoming the go-to target for Cam Newton. He's at least worth using as a flex option.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers caught five passes for 59 yards during the team's Week 10 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Meyers also completed a 24-yard touchdown pass to RB Rex Burkhead.
Huddle Up: Meyers' dime to Burkhead will be the play everyone remembers as it helped turn the game in New England's favor, but he was also on the receiving end of more than half of Cam Newton's passing yards Sunday night. While not the flashiest guy, Meyers has WR3/flex value going forward.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers rolled up career highs with 12 receptions, 14 targets and 169 yards in Week 9 against the New York Jets on his 24th birthday.
Huddle Up: Meyers has been developing quite a nice rapport with Cam Newton, and his role has increased in each of the past three outings. He has gone from four grabs to six grabs to 12 during the span, and he has totaled 22 catches for 287 yards on 30 targets over the span. He'll be a hot property off the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the Ravens.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers caught six passes for 58 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 8. He was targeted 10 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Meyers appears to be Cam Newton's favorite target and will be the No. 1 receiver for the Patriots as long as Julian Edelman and N'Keal Harry are sidelined. He can be a low-end No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues because of the favorable matchup.
