Jakobi Meyers was the New England Patriots leading receiver in 2020 with 59 receptions for 729 yards, but couldn’t find the end zone one time. That changed in Week 2 of the preseason at least, as he caught three passes for 56 yards and that ever elusive touchdown. Of course, he still needs a regular season score, but that should come this year. He was Newton’s favorite target in this game with the first team and it paid off with the 28-yard touchdown strike.
Meyers has been the best receiver in camp according to multiple reports and should be the No. 1 wide receiver target for Cam Newton or Mac Jones this season. The Patriots as a whole should be better this year offensively and defensively. Meyers makes for a nice late round fantasy pick, but this game could start moving his average draft position higher. The good news is that it’s so high right now that he should remain a value.
