Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 Sidelined by a quad injury since Week 8, Shepard was able to practice on Wednesday. He'll be hard to trust this week in fantasy even if he's active for Sunday's game against the Eagles. He's a high-end WR5.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Did you know that Meyers has finished inside the top-36 WRs just twice over the last seven games? He's providing a high floor for fantasy managers each week and is consistently hovering around the WR40-WR48 range, but there's very little upside with Meyers now that other receiving options have taken steps forward in this offense. Coming into the year, Meyers had some appeal as a fantasy asset due to the fact that Agholor and Bourne were unknown commodities. However, we've seen both of those receivers settle into their roles in this New England offense recently and Meyers' target share is taking a hit because of it. With very little scoring upside, Meyers should be viewed as a mid-range FLEX play week in and week out.
