What changed for Meyers in Week 11? Just three targets? During the previous two weeks, Meyers played 98 snaps on the perimeter and 37 snaps in the slot. In Week 11, he played 32 snaps on the perimeter and 33 snaps in the slot, so he much more of the slot receiver with N'Keal Harry back in a full-time role in the offense. It shouldn't have been a negative against the Texans, but it certainly led to less targets in a game Newton threw for 300-plus yards. Of the production the Cardinals have allowed to skill-position players, 56.2 percent of it has gone to wide receivers, which ranks as the third-highest mark in the league, behind only the Seahawks and Steelers. There have been just 14 wide receivers who've finished as top-40 options against the Cardinals, though they've been struggling a bit as of late, as they've allowed multiple wide receivers to finish with 12-plus PPR points in each of their last three games. It's also worth noting that four of the top-six performances they've allowed to wide receviers have gone to slot-heavy options. Considering the loss of Burkhead, there should be a tad more targets available for everyone, including Meyers. Despite a dud last week, he remains in the WR4 conversation this week.Whew boy. It seems like Sean McVay has made good on his promise to model his run game after Kyle Shanahan. We now have a three-man timeshare where none of them have finished with more than 10 touches in either of the last two games. Even worse, there are just five teams in the NFL who've held running backs to 3.50 or less yards per carry this season, and the 49ers are one of them. The 49ers are also one of five teams who've allowed less than 10.0 fantasy points per game on the ground to running backs. Running backs have combined to touch the ball just 24.9 times per game against them, which doesn't bode well for a three-way timeshare. There hasn't been a game this year where the 49ers have allowed more than 96 yards on the ground to an entire team of running backs. They've been less efficient through the air as a defense, but even when you add the receiving production in, they've allowed just 110.1 total yards per game to running backs. While Henderson looks better than the others, he's totaled just 15 carries over the last two games combined, so when you look at his limited involvement in the passing game, there's no way you can start him with confidence as anything more than a back-end RB3/high-end RB4. Brown is the primary receiving back but with Akers' involvement as of late, Brown has totaled just 12 touches over the last two weeks and is just a low-ceiling/low-floor RB4. Akers' role is growing but he's played just 30 snaps over the last two games combined. He's just a touchdown-or-bust RB4/5 option, and not a great one in this matchup.

Meyers had been the hot hand in this WR room recently, but he took a back seat to both Damiere Byrd and N'Keal Harry this past week. Unfortunately, this receiving room is too difficult to project and it's probably best to now avoid every option, if you can.
