Thursday update: Meyers will play tonight, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He gets a tough matchup with the Bills and may not be 100%. He still is the Patriots No. 1 receiver and has a decent floor if fantasy.

New England wide receiver Jakobi Meyers had a limited practice on Wednesday due to a shoulder injury. He was listed as questionable on the injury report ahead of the Patriots’ Thursday Night Football appearance this week. The Pats will face the Buffalo Bills at Gillette Stadium.

Fantasy football implications for Week 13

Meyers left the Patriots’ Thanksgiving game against the Vikings with an apparent shoulder injury, but later returned to the field. He has been limited in practice all week leading up to TNF, and if he’s unavailable, Mac Jones will turn to WR DeVante Parker, TE Hunter Henry, and RB Rhamondre Stevenson as his targets.

The team’s leading rusher, Meyers has added 571 receiving yards and has played 80% of offensive snaps despite missing several games with injury issues. He told reporters on Tuesday that his shoulder was feeling better than it had over the weekend. He was able to get a limited practice in, so Meyers may be ready rejoin the field and to face the Bills on Thursday night.
