The New England Patriots will host the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16 of the NFL season. What does this matchup mean for Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers? Should you start or sit him in fantasy football? We’ll break it down below.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Jakobi Meyers WR

First off, we need to double-check that Meyers is playing. As of the middle of the week, he was listed as questionable with a concussion, but the severity is unknown. Meyers has been struggling recently, failing to record double-digit fantasy points (PPR scoring) in five straight games. It’s difficult to envision a bounceback against the Bengals, who have allowed the eighth fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers this season.

Start or sit in Week 16?

Sit. Meyers is listed as questionable for this contest, so definitely have a backup plan in place. Even if Meyers plays, his fantasy upside is limited in New England’s run-heavy offense.
