2022 Fantasy Outlook
Meyers finally scored his first TD Week 10 last year, and within a few weeks he'd reached career highs in every other major counting stat, albeit with career lows for yards per catch and yards per target. Rookie QB Mac Jones played better than Cam Newton the year before, and Meyers was probably lucky in the first place to post 9.0 YPT and a 72.8 percent catch rate in a Newton-led offense. The most likely scenario for 2022 is Meyers recovering some of the efficiency but failing to match last year's 126 targets. That's partly because the team has a more experienced version of Jones in Year 2, and partly on account of a more diverse passing game with DeVante Parker and second-round pick Tyquan Thornton added at WR. The improved depth likely will cost Meyers snaps and targets on the perimeter, which accounted for about a third of his volume, but he'll still be the primary slot man and one of Jones' most trusted receivers.

ANALYSIS
With Meyers unavailable Sunday, fellow wideouts DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne and Lil'Jordan Humphrey are in line see to added opportunities versus Baltimore alongside Nelson Agholor. Meanwhile, the team's top tight ends (Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith) are also candidates to see added involvement in the team's Week 3 passing attack.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
2019
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.
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.
