  Patriots | Cam Newton leads Pats in the finale    Sun Jan 3, 05:34 PM

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton completed 21-of-30 passes for 242 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 17 against the New York Jets while running for a game-high 79 yards on 11 totes, including a game-best 49-yard scamper. WR Jakobi Meyers also hit Newton on a 19-yard pass for touchdown. RB Sony Michel rushed 16 times for 76 yards, and he added three grabs for 60 yards and a score. Meyers also posted a team-high 68 receiving yards while running for seven yards, TE Devin Asiasi had two catches for 39 yards and a touchdown, while RB James White ended up with a touchdown grab and 31 yards. WR N'Keal Harry finished with two grabs for 17 yards, while DE Chase Winovich led the way on defense with six total stops, two sacks, two tackles for loss, a pass defensed and three quarterback hits.

Footballguys view: Newton had his best fantasy game of the year in the last game of the year. He could re-sign with the Patriots, but there will be a better market for him in this free agent market even though it wasn't a great season for him and New England. Jakobi Meyers has secured a long term role in the offense with his performance this season.

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers caught three passes for 38 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 11. He was targeted three times during the game.

  Patriots | Pats looking for young WRs to step up    Wed Apr 29, 01:31 AM

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick expects his group of wide receivers to be 'very competitive' in 2020. 'I'm sure all our young players will improve in Year 2. Got a first-round pick on N'Keal [Harry] last year. Second-round pick on Mohamed [Sanu] -- that was really off this draft. Obviously have Julian [Edelman] and a number of other young players,' Belichick said. Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry and Mohamed Sanu sit atop the team's depth chart entering the summer. The team also added WR Damiere Byrd during the offseason and return 2019 undrafted free agents Jakobi Meyers and Gunner Olszewski in addition to practice-squad receivers Devin Ross and Quincy Adeboyejo. Veteran WR Marqise Lee (Jaguars) also agreed to a one-year deal recently.

Footballguys view: The Patriots have names on the roster, and they've certainly invested premium picks to the position. It's now time for guys like Harry (and others) to elevate their games. We'll have a better idea about the pecking order for the Patriots in training camp.

Footballguys view: Meyers has clearly made the team at this point and he's a PPR sleeper, although Josh Gordon's reinstatement takes the edge off of the upside of everyone in this offense.

  Patriots | Jakobi Meyers impressing Tom Brady    Tue Aug 20, 01:37 AM

New England Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers has 'taken advantage of his opportunities,' according to QB Tom Brady. 'The football doesn't care how much experience you have,' Brady said. 'It just knows that when I let that ball go, it's got to be in the hands of the guy who it's intended for.'

Footballguys view: Meyers was consistent in college at North Carolina State as a slot receiver. He's not crazy athletic but Meyers knows how to get open on underneath routes. We'll monitor him in super deep dynasty formats.
