News: 6 days agoMeyers (concussion) turned 12 targets into seven receptions for 85 yards in Sunday's 23-18 loss to the Steelers.
Spin: Meyers returned from a one-game absence after clearing the league's concussion protocol, resuming his role as the Raiders' No. 2 wideout. His 12 targets finished only behind teammate Davante Adams, who racked up a whopping 13-172-2 receiving line on 20 targets. Meyers still finished with a strong fantasy line in his own right, and he has now recorded double-digit targets in both of his active games since joining Las Vegas this past offseason. With his health back in order and a significant role on offense, Meyers is shaping up to be a strong fantasy asset this season, which continues with a Week 4 matchup against the 0-3 Chargers next Sunday.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Meyers signed with the Raiders after spending his first four seasons with the Patriots. Undrafted in 2019, Meyers progressively worked his way up the New England depth chart and has handled a respectable 22%-plus target share each of the last three seasons. Meyers has finished each of the last two seasons exactly 29th in fantasy points despite major deficiencies in the TD department. The slot man has never cleared four end zone targets in a season and his six TD receptions in 2022 tripled his total during his first three campaigns (two). The 26-year-old will work behind Davante Adams in Las Vegas, but there's a path to a respectable target share with conservative Jimmy Garoppolo under center. Meyers has the look of a flex option in PPR formats.
