RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The well-traveled 29-year-old tight end made 22 catches for 190 yards and zero touchdowns in 2014. He is utilized primarily as a blocking tight end and will retain his role as the team hopes Austin Seferian-Jenkins will emerge as its primary pass-catching tight end.

2014

As expected, Myers saw dramatically fewer targets last season with the Giants than the 105 that came his way in 2012 with the Raiders. He signed in March with the Buccaneers but could see his targets decline again. Second-round draft pick Austin Seferian-Jenkins is an athletic receiver and a bigger red-zone target at 6-5 than Myers, who's 6-3. Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said this offseason that blocking is a priority at the position this year, which also favors Seferian-Jenkins, as Myers is not known for his blocking skills. He has good receiving skills, though, catching 70 percent of his targets the last two years.

2013

Myers enjoyed a coming out party in Oakland last season due in large part to his 105 targets, fourth among tight ends. But Myers also displayed good all-around receiving skills, catching more than 75 percent of the passes thrown his way (1st among 50-target TE). Myers, however, elected to leave the Raiders for the Giants, which almost certainly means fewer targets this season as the Giants have considerably better and more established high-volume receivers. The man Myers replaces Martellus Bennett had 16 red-zone looks and five scores in New York last year, so consider that a reasonable expectation for their top tight end in 2013 as well.

2012

The departure of Kevin Boss should leave the starting tight end to Myers for the upcoming season. Myers has been utilized as more of a blocker than a receiver during his short career and while he could be the top tight end in Oakland, its hard to imagine him becoming fantasy relevant in most formats. That being said, Oakland could play from behind a lot this season and Myers could develop into a target in the red zone.

2010

Myers will be in contention for a reserve tight end role.

2009

Myers should see some action as a blocking tight end in his rookie season with the Raiders.
