Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Bills. He’s been playing through this shoulder injury for a few weeks and shouldn’t be limited today.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable for Week 18 vs. the Bills after limited practice all week. Fellow WR DeVante Parker (concussion) logged full practice on Friday and has been removed from the final injury report. It seems as though we'll see Parker on the field on Sunday for the first time since Week 14 vs. the Cardinals. That said, Meyers is the player of the two who carries the most fantasy value. He's played through this shoulder injury for a few weeks now and we feel pretty confident that he'll suit up. The Bills' defense ranks as the 11th-best matchup for WRs in adjusted fantasy points allowed this season, and Meyers carries a team-leading 27% target share over the last 2 weeks. Consider Meyers a solid WR2 in Week 18.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity again on Thursday. It's also worth noting that WR DeVante Parker (concussion) has now practiced limited on back-to-back days. This is certainly encouraging for Parker as he's been sidelined since Week 14. Friday's injury report will give us official designations for the pair of pass-catchers ahead of Week 18 vs. the Bills. Check back tomorrow for further analysis.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday. This same injury has plagued Meyers for a few weeks now. He's yet to miss a game because of it, so we feel pretty good about Meyers' availability for Week 18 vs. the Bills. We'll keep track of this in case anything changes.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers aggravated his shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. He told reporters afterward that he's "fine" and expects to be ready for next weekend's finale vs. the Bills. We'll track his status throughout the coming week.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers caught 6 balls for 48 yards and a TD on 9 targets in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. He came down hard on his TD catch, though, and told reporters after the game that he aggravated the shoulder injury initially suffered on Thanksgiving night at Minnesota. We'll see about Meyers' outlook for Week 18. The fact that New England clinched a playoff berth with this one could affect his availability.

Patriots WR Kendrick Bourne caught 6 of 9 targets for 100 yards and a TD in Saturday's loss to the Bengals. He led the team in all 3 categories (tying Jakobi Meyers in receptions) and added a 29-yard carry. Bourne did all that despite trailing Meyers and rookie WR Tyquan Thornton in playing time and routes, according to Pro Football Focus. Meyers posted a 6-83-1 receiving line on 7 targets, though he inflated that with a 48-yard TD on a ball that was intended for WR Scotty Washington but bounced to Meyers off Washington's hands. Meyers did lead the team in pass routes, though, which makes him easier to like for a Week 17 clash with the Dolphins. Thornton finished with just 1 catch for 8 yards among 3 targets. QB Mac Jones threw for 240 yards and 2 TDs in the game.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. We’re not worried about the shoulder, but New England’s struggling passing game leaves Meyers as a weak WR3 play. WR Tyquan Thornton (knee) is also active.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is expected to play vs. the Bengals today. Meyers was limited in practice all week, but we never sensed much concern about his availability for this one. He's just a low-end WR3 option in a struggling New England passing game.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable for Week 16 vs. the Bengals. WR DeVante Parker (concussion) has been ruled out. Meyers is in the WR3/flex conversation in a neutral matchup on Saturday. The Patriots don't throw the ball a ton, but Meyers is usually a decent bet on a weekly basis for a modest target total.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) was a limited participant at practice on Wednesday. Veteran WR DeVante Parker (concussion) did not participate again for the 2nd consecutive day. It seems that Meyers is far likelier to play than Parker at this point. Tomorrow will tell us more about Meyers' availability for Week 16's matchup vs. the Bengals. Check back later.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) logged limited participation in practice on Tuesday. Teammate DeVante Parker (concussion) did not practice at all. Week 16's game vs. the Bengals falling on a Saturday makes this situation a bit tougher. As such, we'll keep tabs on the Pats' injury report today regarding the health of this pass-catching duo.

Patriots QB Mac Jones went an ugly 13-of-31 passing (41.9%) for 112 yards in Sunday's loss to the Raiders, with no TDs or INTs. WRs Jakobi Meyers and Nelson Agholor tied for the target lead with 6 apiece but totaled just 3 receptions between them. This was Jones' 2nd straight game without a TD and 2nd among the past 3 with less than 200 yards. He's simply not a viable fantasy option at this stage.

2:36pm EST 12/18/22

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) is active for today’s game vs. the Raiders. He got in just limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, but we’re expecting him to play his usual role in this plus matchup. Meyers is in the WR3 mix.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) is expected to play vs. the Raiders today. Meyers got in just 2 limited practices this week. But, considering it was a concussion and he's plenty familiar with the offense, we're expecting him to be ready for a full role in today's plus matchup.

The Patriots expect to have WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders, according to The Boston Herald's Andrew Callahan. If that's the case, Meyers should be a full-go in an excellent matchup. Vegas ranks 26th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs and 31st vs. slot receivers. Meyers has played 60% of his snaps in the slot this season.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Raiders. He went from a limited practice on Wednesday to no practice on Thursday to another limited practice on Friday. That’s a strange progression for a guy in the concussion protocol. Patriots-Raiders doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET on Sunday, but we should get an update on Meyers by that morning. Patriots WR DeVante Parker (concussion) has been ruled out, leaving Nelson Agholor, Tyquan Thornton and Kendrick Bourne as New England’s top 3 healthy WRs.
