New England Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers has developed into the top pass catcher in this offense’s first season with Mac Jones as the starting quarterback. He will get a matchup against the New York Jets in Week 7, so Meyers could be in for a solid performance.

Fantasy Football analysis: Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers

In Week 6, Meyers had saw a team-high five receptions and six targets, and he finished with 44 yards, though one touchdown was called back due to a holding penalty. Meyers leads the team in receptions, targets and yards this season but somehow has yet to find the end zone after six games, which is obviously a huge hit to his fantasy production. He has a matchup against the Jets, which rank No. 17 in passing yards allowed per game.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Meyers is a mid-tier wide receiver No. 3 from a fantasy perspective and definitely can be used as a flex option this weekend.
