New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers caught four passes for 38 yards against the New York Jets in Week 2. He was targeted six times during the game.
Huddle Up: Meyers has been targeted 16 times over the first two games of the season but has been held to under 45 yards in both games. He can be avoided next week against the New Orleans Saints.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers hauled in six of his nine targets for 44 yards in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Both the catch and target totals were game highs. While four of his receptions went for first downs, half of his yardage total came on a 22-yard grab. Meyers has established himself as the top wideout in Foxboro, but he appears to be limited to a chain-mover as he has yet to score a touchdown on 91 career catches. Despite his aversion to the end zone, Meyers could make a case to be a volume-based WR3 in PPR leagues in Week 2 against the New York Jets.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers caught all three of his targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in a 35-0 preseason win over the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: Meyers was on the receiving end of a touchdown from Cam Newton, and the two have shown a connection since Newton arrived in Foxborough. As long as Newton remains the starter, Meyers figures to be the go-to target and a WR3 for fantasy purposes.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers had a strong spring, in the opinion of beat writer Andrew Callahan.
Huddle Up: Meyers is expected to be the WR1 for the squad after a 59-729-0 line last year. He figures to be a high-end WR3 with room to improve.

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.
