News: 6 days agoMeyers caught four of his six targets for 38 yards during Sunday's 25-6 win over the Jets.
Spin: Per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com, Meyers was on the field for 52 of a possible 58 snaps on offense in the contest, while Nelson Agholor logged 50 snaps, and Kendrick Bourne was out there for 31 plays. Look for Meyers' playing time to remain steady going forward, and though he operates in an offense that spreads the ball around, as the Patriots' early leader in targets (15) through two games, Meyers (who has 10 catches in that span) does possess some utility in PPR formats.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Meyers barely saw the field during his first year-plus in the league, but that changed when Julian Edelman went down for the season in Week 7 last season. Meyers took over and racked up 81 targets (a massive 30% team share) while playing 96% of the offensive snaps during the team's final 11 games. The 2019 UDFA signing was WR22 in fantasy during that stretch, bizarrely failing to catch a TD, but throwing two. Edelman retired, but Meyers has more competition for targets this season via newcomers Nelson Agholor, Kendrick Bourne, Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith. Meyers struggled for fantasy relevance on last year's massive target share, but the 24-year-old will benefit from a more pass-friendly scheme with Cam Newton out and Mac Jones in at quarterback. He's a flex option in PPR formats.
