Week 13 Half PPR Rankings
Jakobi Meyers Note

Despite Newton not throwing the ball very well, Meyers has finished with at least six targets and 52 yards in five of his last six games. Over that time (Week 7-12), Meyers is the No. 16 wide receiver in half PPR formats. He's not someone you play for a ceiling, but his floor is respectable. Wide receivers have seen just a 53.1 percent target share against the Chargers, which ranks as the second-lowest mark in the league. Meanwhile, the Patriots quarterbacks have targeted their wide receivers 70.0 percent of the time. Lack of production has followed the lack of targets, as receivers have accounted for just 45.7 percent of the fantasy points the Chargers have allowed to skill-position players. The only team who's allowed a lower percentage is the Bears. All in all, there have been just 10 wide receivers who've scored 11.2-plus PPR points against the Chargers this year, which ranks as the second-fewest in football. They were without Casey Hayward last week but did get Chris Harris Jr. back into the lineup. If Hayward returns, the Chargers suddenly have a deadly trio between Hayward, Harris Jr, and Michael Davis. It would be Harris Jr. in coverage with Meyers most of the time, as he's their slot cornerback. Harris has just returned from a seven-game absence, so maybe he's catching him at the right time? He hasn't been shutdown in his coverage to this point, so Meyers isn't a must-avoid or anything, as the bigger risk is his quarterback. Consider him a decent WR4-type option who you're sacrificing a bit of ceiling to play.
