2020 Fantasy Outlook
Though not a splashy signing, Byrd has a chance to compete for the Patriots' No. 3 wideout role, a vacancy open now that Phillip Dorsett is no longer with the team. If Byrd can claim the assignment, he'd work behind veteran slot maven Julian Edelman and 2019 first-rounder N'Keal Harry. The 27-year-old wideout is coming off a 2019 campaign in which he caught a career-high 32 passes for 359 yards and a TD in 11 games for Arizona. Even if the 5-9, 180-pounder doesn't end up being a high-volume target with his new team, the speedy Byrd does at least also offer special teams value. Read Past Outlooks

Sets career high with 47 catches

January 6, 2021
Byrd carried once for four yards and caught one of his three targets for a seven-yard gain Sunday in the Patriots' 28-14 win over the Jets.
ANALYSIS
Byrd finished his first season in New England with a career-high 47 catches for 604 yards and a touchdown to go with two carries for 15 yards. He was a fixture on the field while suiting up in all 16 games, garnering an 89.1 percent offensive snap share over the course of the campaign. When signed as a free agent by New England last March, Byrd seemed headed for a complementary role, but after the team parted ways with Mohamed Sanu prior to Week 1, Byrd ended up seeing regular playing time all season. That context resulted in several fantasy-worthy efforts from Byrd, but the overall inconsistency of the New England passing game resulted in him being a hit-or-miss lineup option. The 27-year-old is eligible to become a free agent this coming offseason, but Mike Reiss of ESPN.com believes that that the Patriots' potential overhaul at wideout could include trying to keep Byrd around.

2015
Byrd's efforts on the Panthers' practice squad were rewarded by a promotion to Carolina's 53-man roster for eight games last season. As a reserve receiver, his involvement was understandably limited, but Byrd still managed to score twice from his 10 receptions. He'll once again aim to make the team this season.
Byrd spent most of his rookie year on the Panthers practice squad, but did make one appearance during the regular season, catching his lone target for 16 yards. Like last year, the local product is in competition with Brenton Bersin and Keyarris Garrett for a roster spot this term.
Will compete for a roster spot this season.
