Friday PM Update: Meyers was able to return in a limited fashion on Friday. Even so, he still heads into the weekend listed as questionable on the injury report. If he is unable to play, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne will have to step up, with DeVante Parker already ruled out.

Thursday PM update: Unlike Wednesday, Jakobi Meyers wasn’t able to get in a limited participation on Thursday. That’s a downgrade, but it’s tough to know why he didn’t practice. We’ll see how it goes on Friday.
Thursday Update: Meyers was not seen during the stretching portion of the Patriots’ practice. He was absent at the start of Wednesday’s practice, but was still listed as a limited participant on the day’s injury report. Meyers is still dealing with a concussion and the concussion protocols.

New England Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers was at practice on Wednesday but was not in uniform and didn’t participate during the portion of the practice that was open to the media. Meyers missed the Patriots’ Week 14 game while in concussion protocol after suffering a head injury in Week 13.
Fantasy football implications for Week 15
Meyers is just one on a long list of starters listed as questionable on the Patriots’ depth chart heading into this week’s matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders. WR DeVante Parker and RB Rhamondre Stevenson are also questionable heading into Sunday.
Meyers leads the team in receiving yards this season, with 593 over 50 receptions. If he and Parker are both out, Mac Jones will likely be looking to WRs Tyquan Thornton and Nelson Agholor as well as tight end Hunter Henry for targets. With these injuries in mind, Henry would be a good option to start at tight end this week.
