Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Meyers served as the default WR1 for a Pats squad that saw the now-retired Julian Edelman suit up for only 6 games.
  • The former UDFA totaled 59-729-0, primarily as a short-range target.
  • Meyers led the Pats with 81 targets at a 19.2% target share.
  • Among 84 WRs with 50+ targets, Meyers ranked a surprising 10th in yards per route run (2.24).
  • Meyers posted lines of 12-169 (at Jets), and 7-111 (at Dolphins) — both without Edelman.
  • 2021 brings about much stiffer target competition. The Pats added WRs Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne in free agency; Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry at TE.
  • Cam Newton returned to the squad on a 1-year “prove it” deal. His clock is ticking after the Pats added Alabama QB Mac Jones 15th overall.
  • Regardless of who’s under center, Meyers will represent a low-ceiling PPR target because of the new supporting cast. After running a route on 93.4% of the Pats’ passing snaps last fall, look for that number to dip.
  • New England will remain a run-heavy offense, especially for as a long as Cam Newton is under center. The Pats had the league’s 2nd-lowest pass rate in 2020.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

A 2019 UDFA, Meyers was a nice story last season. He popped for games of 18 and 29 PPR points on a Patriots squad desperate for pass catchers.

The setup is simply much different this time around. With Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne arriving, Meyers doesn’t profile as a draftable fantasy asset this summer.

Henry McKenna of Patriots Wire says it would "surprise" him if WR Jakobi Meyers doesn't lead the Patriots in receptions and receiving yards this year. "Meyers has been the best pass-catcher at training camp and in preseason," McKenna writes. "It's not even close." We'll see exactly what that means for weekly target counts in an offense that figures to remain run-heavy as long as QB Cam Newton is behind center. But we'd also bet on New England transitioning to rookie Mac Jones at some point this year. Either way, Meyers is a low-risk PPR bet well outside the top 50 at WR.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers has been on the field for 93% of Cam Newton's snaps through 2 games (27 of 29). His 67 receiving yards rank 2nd on the team in preseason, trailing only reserve WR candidate Kristian Wilkerson (who has just 8 more yards on 5 more receptions). Meyers' top highlight has been a 28-yard catch-and-run TD against the Eagles in Week 2. Nelson Agholor sat out the preseason opener but returned for Thursday night's game. He played just 1 fewer snap than Meyers (15-14) but drew nary a target compared with 3 for Meyers. The 2nd-year wideout looks like a high-upside late-round pick for your fantasy football draft.

Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald this week led his list of potential "breakout" Patriots for 2021 with WR Jakobi Meyers. Callahan points to the "only" potential hurdles for Meyers being injury or "dominant summers from Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne," whom New England paid up for in free agency. "But those free-agent additions undoubtedly saw what everyone else did at OTAs and minicamp this spring: Meyers was the best receiver on the field," Callahan writes. We've certainly read other similar offseason buzz for Meyers, who claimed 28% of Patriots targets from Week 7 on last season. At WR68 in current FFPC best-ball drafting and a mid-13th round price on Underdog, Meyers at least looks worth some shots in your drafts. We'll see how things go for him and the rest of the Pats offense through training camp and preseason. Mac Jones taking over for Cam Newton at QB would also likely be good for Meyers' target volume.

NBC Sports' Tom Curran believes Jakobi Meyers will be the "most reliable and productive Patriots wideout in 2021." New England added Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne to the WR room this offseason, but Curran believes Meyers' understanding of the offense, route-running ability and reliable hands will give him the edge. It's a situation to track in training camp and preseason action, but Meyers is a nice target right now at his late ADP.
