Yes, N'Keal Harry returned to practice, Rex Burkhead is coming back and Meyers isn't even playing that much, so if you need a WR now, perhaps you should turn to Dante Pettis or Cole Beasly who have good matchups this week. The appeal with Meyers, though, and the reason he is my #1 wideout pickup this week is because of his longterm upside. Pettis and Beasley, nor Jamison Crowder or Auden Tate are going to be anything more than streamers so you might as well stash the most talented of the group because if anything happens to the injury-prone Julian Edelman or the suspension-prone Josh Gordon, we've got ourselves a weekly fantasy start.

Jakobi Meyers shines in TNF win

Jakobi Meyers caught all four of his targets for 54 yards in the Patriots' Week 6 win over the Giants. Meyers benefited from extra work after Josh Gordon left the game early with an injury.

Fantasy Impact

Meyers both showed how thin the Patriots are at wide receiver and how far he has come since going undrafted earlier this year. Meyers was a strong producer at NC State with below-average athleticism, but showed the ability to get open and strong hands in the TNF win. Meyers looks to be earning the trust of his team and coaches, and could parlay this into more work going forward. This is good news for Meyers and bad news for Josh Gordon. For now, Meyers shouldn't be used unless Gordon misses time, but he can be added if available and if a viable drop candidate is on the bench.
