Josh McDaniels took another step today in making the Raiders "Patriots west" as they inked Jakobi Meyers to a three-year deal. This is a welcome addition to a Raiders' wide receiver room that was looking thin outside of Davante Adams and Hunter Renfrow (Mack Hollins is a FA). The dominoes might not be done falling, though, as this could also signal a Renfrow departure. Renfrow can be cut, and the Raiders can save 1.5 million against the cap. The likeliest outcome is that Renfrow remains in Vegas this year and is cut bait next year when the team can save 8.2 million against the cap next year by kicking him to the curb. The Raiders are surrounding their new starting quarterback with underneath weapons. Meyers will rotate slot work with Renfrow. Meyers played 69.5% from the slot last year (Renfrow 86.0%), drawing a 22.0% target share (29th), a 25.8% target per route run rate (22nd), and a 27.4% air yard share as the Patriots' number one option. He was 29th in PFF receiving grade and 23rd in yards per route run (minimum 50 targets per PFF). Meyers has been the WR29 and WR35 in fantasy points per game over the last two seasons. Meyers' signing could signal the Raiders' plan to deploy more 11 personnel this season after ranking 18th in the use of three-plus wide receiver sets last year and Foster Moreau's likely free agency departure. Meyers will compete with Hunter Renfrow for second in line at the target water fountain. Meyers is a low-ceiling WR3/4 that gets a small boost in PPR formats.

Jakobi Meyers signs 3-year deal with Raiders

Jakobi Meyers and the Las Vegas Raiders have agreed on a 3-year, $33 million deal with $21 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact

Meyers becomes another weapon for newly acquired Jimmy Garoppolo and provides a headache for pass defenses with him and Davante Adams on the field together. Meyers is coming off another efficient season (wherein he dealt with injuries) that saw him catch 67 passes for 804 yards and six TD. In fantasy, he is a leading candidate to become 2023's version of 2022 Christian Kirk.
