The Hype is Real: Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers Snags 2 Touchdowns and Drips in Fantasy Upside

There’s a rookie wide receiver making waves in New England and it’s not the first round pick — albeit N’Keal Harry made two fantastic catches vs the Lions. It’s undrafted free agent Jakobi Meyers who is getting peppered in practice by Tom Brady and making legitimate noise with the “starters” during their preseason slaughter of the Lions — recording six receptions, 69 yards and two touchdowns on an efficient eight targets. Not only did he dominate the game, but he also sat out the second half with the “starters” and was even on the podium after the game — something Bill Belichick does not grant to young, undrafted rookies. We’re known to buy into camp hype, but it looks like this kid is the real deal.

Although his ‘Player Profiler‘ is very underwhelming, it looks like Meyers has already grasped the complicated Patriots playbook. On his first touchdown grab, he fought through a pressing safety on the goal line, gained separation and fought through contact to make the catch in the end zone. As long as Meyers continues to gain Brady’s trust, he’ll be well on his way to being a late-round fantasy flier in an offense that’s begging for an outside receiver to step up.

As one can see, you don’t need to scroll all the way to the bottom of our rankings to find Meyers… he’s our WR55, a MIND-BLOWING +73 VS THE ECR.
