2021 Fantasy Outlook
Meyers figures to compete with newcomer Kendrick Bourne for a starting spot this coming season. It's assumed that free-agent acquisition Nelson Agholor will be a part of the first-team offense, but following the retirement of Julian Edelman, the rest of the Patriots' wide receiver depth chart remains unsettled. Though it's clear that the team sees something in Bourne, Meyers led the Pats last season with 59 catches for 729 yards in 14 games. Meanwhile, 2019 first-rounder N'Keal Harry also is in the mix, but his role is undefined. In that context, Meyers still has an opportunity to carve out a niche in what should be an improved passing attack in 2021, but with the Patriots likely to run plenty and feature two-tight end sets, earning steady volume figures to be an issue for any of the team's wideouts.

October 18, 2021
Meyers hauled in five of his six targets for 44 yards and caught a two-point conversion in Sunday's 35-29 overtime loss to the Cowboys.
ANALYSIS
Meyers, who was on the field for 34 of a possible 54 snaps on offense in the contest, is averaging six catches and 57.7 receiving yards per game, numbers that put him on the PPR radar. While the third-year wideout has yet to be credited with a regular-season TD, that almost changed Sunday before his 25-yard catch-and-run was called back due to a penalty.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Meyers, who joined the Patriots as an undrafted free agent, beat the odds and stuck around with the team last year. He even managed to log a few PPR-worthy efforts in the process, while finishing the regular season with 26 catches for 359 yards in 15 games. Heading into the 2020 campaign, the 6-2, 200-pounder may have to fight to keep his slot in New England's wide receiver rotation behind Julian Edelman, given that N'Keal Harry will be healthy out of the gate and Damiere Byrd was added in free agency.
With N'Keal Harry on IR, Meyers is sticking around as a depth option behind Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, Demaryius Thomas and Phillip Dorsett. Making the team was a feat for the undrafted free agent, but additional roster attrition would have to occur in order for Meyers to merit fantasy consideration.
