2020 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Team's leading receiver in Year 2
WRNew England Patriots
January 3, 2021
Meyers caught six of seven targets for 68 yards and threw a 19-yard touchdown in Sunday's 28-14 win over the Jets. He also rushed once for seven yards in the season finale.
ANALYSIS
Meyers spent his freshman season at NC State as a quarterback before converting to wide receiver, and he showed off his passing skills on a trick play in the third quarter, finding Cam Newton for the game-tying touchdown. He finishes the season as New England's leader in both catches (59) and receiving yards (729), but Meyers is yet to catch a touchdown through two NFL seasons. The Patriots will likely look to upgrade their underwhelming receiving corps in the offseason, but Meyers should be a part of the team's equation at wide receiver after his breakout sophomore season.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.
