Friday PM Update: Meyers is officially questionable for Sunday’s game on the team’s final injury report.

Thursday update: Meyers still isn’t on the practice field for the Patriots, so there’s now real concern he won’t be able to suit up in Week 3 against the Ravens. Agholor and Bourne remain the top options for fantasy managers in the events Meyers sits out.

The New England Patriots went into Pittsburgh and got a huge victory over the Steelers in Week 2. They’ll be looking to keep that momentum going against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3, and hope to have wide receiver Jakobi Meyers available. He is not practicing Wednesday due to a knee injury.

Fantasy football implications

Meyers has been a solid receiver for the Patriots this year, seeing 19 targets through two games. New England has a run-heavy offense, so there’s some limit to Meyers’ upside but he does have enough talent to make things happen after the catch. The lack of practice Wednesday is a minor concern right now, as Meyers still has a few days to get at least a limited session in.

If Meyers misses the game, look for Nelson Agholor and Hunter Henry to be more involved in the passing game. Kendrick Bourne could also be a solid waiver wire add in Week 3, especially if Baltimore has issues in the secondary with injuries.
