Racks up six receptions

Meyers recorded six receptions on nine targets for 40 yards in Saturday's 47-17 wild-card round loss to Buffalo.

Analysis: Meyers led the team with nine targets, though he was out-produced by Kendrick Bourne. The majority of Meyers' work came with the game well out of reach, though he did tally a 19-yard reception to setup a field goal for New England just before halftime. He was otherwise limited to short gains. Meyers will enter the offseason as a restricted free agent, though after commanding 126 targets and tallying 83 receptions in 2021, it's likely that the Patriots will look to retain him for 2022 and beyond.

Playing in wild-card round

Meyers (thigh) is listed as active for Saturday night's game against the Bills.

Analysis: Meyers was limited at practice this past week as he continues to manage a thigh issue he played through in Weeks 17 and 18. Assuming no in-game setbacks, he'll continue to head the Patriots' wideout corps Saturday along with Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne. Over the course of 17 regular-season outings, Meyers led the team with 83 catches (on 126 targets) for 866 yards and a pair of TDs, a rate of production on the part of the 25-year-old that yielded fantasy relevance in PPR formats.

Questionable for playoff opener

Meyers (thigh) is listed as questionable for Saturday night's playoff game against the Bills after practicing in a limited fashion once again Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Meyers is one of 13 players listed as questionable for the contest by the Patriots, but we'd be surprised if he wasn't available for the team's playoff opener. To be sure, his status should be verified ahead of Saturday night's 8:15 ET kickoff, but the wideout was on the field for 52 of a possible 62 snaps on offense in Week 18 en route to catching four of his eight targets for 70 yards in a loss to the Dolphins. With no reported setbacks, we suspect that his listed practice limitations this week were maintenance-related.

Still dealing with thigh injury

Meyers (thigh) was listed as limited on Tuesday's estimated injury report.

Analysis: Meyers is operating under the same practice regimen for a third straight week, the result of a hamstring issue. In the final two games of the regular season, he still logged at least 77 percent of the offensive snaps on both occasions, reeling in 12 of 16 targets for 143 yards and one touchdown. Even if his reps continue to be managed Wednesday and Thursday and he enters the weekend as questionable, Meyers doesn't appear to be in danger of sitting out Saturday's wild-card contest in Buffalo.

Four catches in Sunday's loss

Meyers caught four of eight targets for 70 yards in Sunday's 33-24 loss to the Dolphins.

Analysis: It was the fifth time this season Meyers has hauled in at least 70 yards in a game, but the only scoring plays he was involved in went the other way -- he was Mac Jones' intended target on a pick-six in the first quarter, and the third-year wideout was then charged with a fumble on the final play of the game as he tried to pitch it to a teammate, resulting in a Miami recovery in the end zone for a second defensive TD. Meyers wraps up a career-best regular season with 87 catches on 130 targets for 936 yards and two touchdowns, and he'll look to atone for Sunday's mistakes in the wild-card round against the Bills.

Active for Sunday's game

Meyers (thigh) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Analysis: Meyers, who practiced in a limited fashion this past week, will give it a go Sunday and should head the Patriots' Week 18 wideout corps along with Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne. Heading into the team's regular-season finale, Meyers has complied a 79-796-2 stat line on 118 targets through 16 games to date, production that makes him worthy of fantasy lineup consideration, especially in PPR formats.

Questionable for Sunday

Meyers (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after practicing in a limited fashion this past week.

Analysis: Given the 'questionable' designation, Meyers' status is worth verifying ahead of Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff, however we'd be surprised it wasn't out there Sunday alongside fellow wideouts Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne. Assuming he's active, Meyers, who has logged a 79/796/2 stat line on 118 targets through 16 games, merits Week 18 fantasy consideration, notably in PPR formats.

Jan 7, 2022 1:59 PM EST


Another limited session

Meyers (thigh) remained limited at practice Thursday.

Analysis: So far there's nothing to suggest that Meyers' availability for Sunday's game against the Dolphins is in danger, but it still seems likely that the wideout will head into the weekend with an official 'questionable' Week 18 injury designation.

Logs limited practice

Meyers (thigh) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Meyers was listed as questionable for this past Sunday's win over the Jaguars after being limited by the thigh issue at practice last week, but ended up logging 56 of a possible 72 snaps in the contest en route to catching all eight of his targets for 73 yards and a touchdown. With no reported setbacks, we suspect that the wideout's Wednesday limitations were maintenance-related.

Leads team in receptions

Meyers (thigh) brought in all eight targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' 50-10 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Analysis: Meyers paced the Patriots in receptions while checking in just behind Kendrick Bourne in receiving yardage. The third-year pro posted his best catch total since Week 4 while taking advantage of the absences of both Nelson Agholor (concussion) and N'Keal Harry (hip), and his four-yard scoring grab just before halftime was only his second touchdown of the campaign. Meyers will have one final regular-season tune-up for the playoffs when he tangles with the Dolphins second in Week 18.

Active for Sunday's game

Meyers (thigh) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Analysis: With Nelson Agholor (concussion) having previously been ruled out for the contest and and N'Keal Harry inactive, Meyers should be in line to head the Patriots' Week 17 wideout corps along with Kendrick Bourne, with Gunner Olszewski and Kristian Wilkerson candidates to mix in as well. Meyers has carved out a degree of utility in PPR formats this season by logging a 71-723-1 receiving line (on 110 targets) over the course of 15 games.

Listed as questionable

Meyers (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Analysis: Meyers was able to practice in a limited fashion this past week, so we suspect he has a solid shot to suit up for Sunday's 1:00 ET contest. With Nelson Agholor (concussion) ruled out, Meyers -- if active -- would be in line to head the Patriots' Week 17 wideout corps along with Kendrick Bourne and N'Keal Harry. Through 15 games to date, Meyers has made a mark in PPR formats by logging a 71/723/1 stat line on 110 targets.

Stays limited in practice

Meyers (thigh) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Meyers has typically avoided New England injury reports this season, but he's tending to a thigh issue in the aftermath of the Patriots' Week 16 loss to the Bills. Fortunately for the third-year wideout he's at least been able to practice in some capacity for the Patriots' first two sessions of the week, a sign that he'll likely be ready to play Sunday against the Jaguars.

Dec 31, 2021 7:17 AM EST


Limited by thigh issue

Meyers (thigh) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday.

Analysis: Meyers is a newcomer to the Patriots' injury report, so his status is worth tracking in advance of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. In this past weekend's loss to the Bills, the wideout logged 48 of a possible 64 snaps on offense, en route to catching six of his eight targets for 59 yards.

Dec 29, 2021 4:18 PM EST


Six catches in Week 16 loss

Meyers caught six of eight targets for 59 yards in Sunday's 33-21 loss to Buffalo.

Analysis: Meyers led the Patriots in targets, catches and receiving yards as Mac Jones mustered just 145 passing yards. Jones went the entire month of December without throwing a touchdown to a wide receiver, but Meyers continues to play a prominent role in the Patriots' passing game despite having just one touchdown catch in his three seasons with the team. A Week 17 visit from the lowly Jaguars offers a nice opportunity for Meyers to make another rare visit to the end zone.

Six grabs in Saturday's loss

Meyers caught six of 12 targets for 44 yards in Saturday's 27-17 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: He tied Hunter Henry for the team lead in catches while leading all receivers on the night in targets as the Patriots played catch-up in the second half, but the volume didn't result in much production for Meyers. It's the third time this season he's seen double-digit passes thrown his way, but game script might not be in his favor in Week 16 against the Bills, even if the weather is a little less harsh than it was in their first meeting this season.

Dec 18, 2021 9:40 PM EST


Not targeted Monday

Meyers was not targeted in Monday night's 14-10 win over the Bills.

Analysis: Meyers was not alone among target-less Patriots, as the team threw the ball merely three times amid extremely windy conditions. With both completions going to non-wideouts, it was an unusual outing for New England's receiving corps, yet still effective enough to win. Meyers and company will now embark on their bye week before returning the play the Colts in Week 15.

Dec 6, 2021 9:08 PM EST


Just under 100 yards in win

Meyers caught five of eight targets for 98 yards in Sunday's 36-13 win over the Titans.

Analysis: Meyers set a new season high in receiving yards, topping his Week 3 output against the Saints by four. He still has only one career touchdown, but the 25-year-old wide receiver has carved out a consistent role in New England's offense, catching at least four passes in all but one game this season.

Nov 28, 2021 3:06 PM EST


Catches four passes Thursday

Meyers logged 56 of a possible 64 snaps in Thursday's 25-0 win over the Falcons, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Meyers, who out-snapped fellow wideouts Nelson Agholor (49), Kendrick Bourne (29) and N'Keal Harry (26) in the contest, wound up with four catches on a team-high six targets for 39 yards. While he's only scored one TD (in Week 10) all season, Meyers' steady workload makes him worthy of lineup consideration in PPR formats.

Nov 19, 2021 9:01 AM EST


Scores at long last

Meyers caught four passes for 49 yards and one touchdown on four targets against Cleveland on Sunday.

Analysis: On his 135th NFL reception Meyers finally found the end zone, albeit from Brian Hoyer in garbage time rather than starter Mac Jones. Hopefully it's not such a long wait for touchdown number two -- indeed, with Meyers' target volume he's a good bet to find the end zone a few more times before the season is over, and that's particularly true if Jones can build on his three-touchdown showing against the Browns. Meyers projects well against the Falcons on Thursday.
