Player Outlook
Meyers sneakily averaged 13.8 PPR points per game in 2023, beating his 12.9 average from 2022. It'll be tough to count on him to do that well again in 2024 not only because of the Raiders' middling QB battle between Aidan O'Connell and Gardner Minshew, but because the team added rookie tight end Brock Bowers, who is likely to take targets away from everyone in the offense not named Davante Adams. Meyers is worth drafting as a bench receiver, but not with a pick before Round 10.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Strong finish to season

    Meyers caught three of five targets for 61 yards and a touchdown and rushed once for a five-yard touchdown in Sunday's 27-14 win over the Broncos. Meyers improvised on a play on which he was expected to throw, reversing field and ultimately scampering into the end zone from close range. The wideout then found pay dirt again with a wide-open 33-yard grab to begin the fourth quarter. Despite inconsistent quarterback play, Meyers finished the season with 71 catches on 106 targets for 807 yards and nine total touchdowns.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Six grabs in Sunday's loss

    Meyers caught six of 10 targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Colts. Davante Adams monopolized the attention of rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell on the afternoon, but Meyers finished second on the Raiders in catches, targets and receiving yards. It's the first time the fifth-year wideout had seen double-digit targets since Week 7, and Meyers is just within striking distance of a new career high if he's able to produce 121 receiving yards in Week 18 against the Broncos -- a secondary he lit up for a 9-81-2 line in their first meeting this season way back in Week 1.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Records three catches in Week 16

    Meyers hauled in three of five targets for 42 yards during Monday's 20-14 victory in Kansas City. On a day in which Raiders quarterback Aidan O'Connell managed just 62 yards passing, Meyers paced the team in catches and receiving yards and ranked second in targets to only Davante Adams (six). It was a quiet follow-up to Meyers' Week 15, when he recorded touchdowns as both a receiver and passer in a 63-21 win against the Chargers. His next chance to produce arrives Sunday in Indianapolis.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: WRs to Sit

    Meyers had a big game against the Chiefs in Week 12 with six catches for 79 yards and a touchdown on seven targets. And he's coming off a great Fantasy outing in Week 15 against the Chargers where he had two catches for 32 yards and a touchdown on four targets, as well as throwing a 3-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams. But I expect this to be a letdown game for Meyers, who has scored 8.9 PPR points or less in three of five road games this season. And Kansas City hasn't allowed a receiver to score more than 9.4 PPR points in the past two games against Buffalo and New England, so Meyers is just a low-end No. 3 PPR receiver in Week 16.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Catches, throws TDs in big win

    Meyers brought in two of four targets for 32 yards and a touchdown and completed both his pass attempts for 12 yards and another score in the Raiders' 63-21 win over the Chargers on Thursday night. Meyers made a significant impact on just two touches, recording his seventh receiving touchdown of the season on a 22-yard grab late in the first quarter. He later added a three-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams to cap off the Raiders' opening drive of the second half after catching a wide receiver screen from Aidan O'Connell. Meyers now has reached the 60-catch mark for the third straight season, but it's worth noting his receiving score was only his second in the last seven games. Meyers draws a much tougher matchup in a Week 16 road battle against the Chiefs on Christmas Day.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Five grabs in Sunday's loss

    Meyers caught five of six targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Vikings. The Raiders' offense came out of the team's bye in a complete funk, but Meyers was still able to haul in at least four passes for the third straight game, although his grabs didn't produce much yardage. The fifth-year wideout hasn't seen double-digit targets since Week 7, but he'll look to break out in Week 15 against the Chargers.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Variety of involvement Sunday

    Meyers caught six of seven targets for 79 yards and a touchdown while adding one rushing attempt for two yards and throwing a pass attempt that fell incomplete in Sunday's 31-17 loss to Kansas City. Meyers wound up leading the team in receiving in addition to his pair of unconventional touches Sunday, as Las Vegas' coaching staff was intent on getting its budding star back on track. The NC State product was recruited as a quarterback out of high school, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that teams have attempted to utilize that additional skill on trick plays. While Meyers failed to complete a pass against the Chiefs, his receiving touchdown on the Raiders' opening drive was the wideout's first since Oct. 22. Meyers will enter the upcoming bye week with 608 combined yards from scrimmage and seven touchdowns through 11 active games before resuming play against Minnesota on Dec. 10.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    Meyers' best bet to help your Fantasy team is to score, which he did by the grace of Wink Martindale's defense two weeks ago when they were totally inept. But banking on that isn't a slam-dunk, especially since we already have a sample of games where O'Connell hasn't leaned on Meyers very much. If we view Meyers as a touchdown-or-bust receiver then chances are you can find someone who is safer to start. That's where I'd lean since there's no guarantee he'll get even five receptions. I'd rather buy into the upside of Marquise Brown, Brandin Cooks or Jordan Addison.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Down game on SNF

    Meyers was held to two catches on as many targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 16-12 win over the Jets. Meyers finished with two or fewer receptions for the third consecutive week following his blazing start to the season with Las Vegas. He was able to negate last week's dip in usage by scoring the first rushing touchdown of his career against the Giants, but there were no unexpected bonuses this time around. Meyers' recent slump roughly coincides with starter Jimmy Garoppolo getting hurt and eventually demoted to backup, as the two showed great chemistry earlier in the year after joining forces in Las Vegas this past offseason. That's not to say that Meyers can't develop a similar rapport with Aidan O'Connell over time, but until that happens, the wideout's fantasy value will continue taking hits until he shows more signs of life. That next opportunity will come against the Dolphins in Week 11.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Flex Starter in PPR (Lineup Decisions)

    We can get away from the narrative that O'Connell doesn't look for Meyers, but we can't possibly get away from the matchup against the Jets. If Meyers stays in a role where he's playing in the slot half of the time, he might actually be worse this week because the Jets have covered receivers lined up in the slot so well. And if Meyers is going to see eight or more targets and stick to a 20% target share, that means O'Connell will have to throw 40 times, and I'm not sure O'Connell will have to do that. I'm OK flexing Meyers in PPR but I'd sit him otherwise. I'm expecting a better game from Chris Godwin, Tank Dell, DK Metcalf and Jahan Dotson.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    Meyers is a terrific receiver stuck in a bad spot. Will Aidan O'Connell be a better passer than when we last saw him? Will Meyers' role adjust at all to help O'Connell? Will the Raiders play it conservatively since the Giants offense doesn't figure to put up a ton of points themselves? We need a week to see how this shakes out, which is why I'd rather start Diontae Johnson, Josh Downs, Zay Flowers, Tee Higgins and Gabe Davis over Meyers.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Held back by QB's poor play

    Meyers caught his only target for 19 yards in Monday's 26-14 loss to the Lions. Meyers' lone target didn't come until the fourth quarter, as Jimmy Garoppolo threw for just 62 yards through the first three quarters and finished with 126 passing yards in the quarterback's return from a back injury. The wide receiver also made a heads-up play later in the fourth to momentarily keep the Raiders' faint hopes alive, jumping on top of a Josh Jacobs fumble and advancing it one yard. Meyers had at least four catches in four of his previous six appearances this season, so he'll likely be much more involved in Week 9 against the Giants, assuming Garoppolo puts forth a sharper performance.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Finds end zone again Sunday

    Meyers caught seven of 13 targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-12 loss to the Bears. The touchdown came in garbage time after rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell had replaced Brian Hoyer under center. Meyers has scored a TD in three straight games and five times total on the year, a big leap from his Patriot days when he found the end zone only twice in his first three seasons. Jimmy Garoppolo (back) is expected back in Week 8 against the Lions, but Meyers has shown he can be productive no matter who is throwing him the ball.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Upgraded to full participation

    Meyers (wrist) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's practice estimate. Following Monday's 17-13 win over the Packers, Meyers was listed as a limited participant on the Raiders' first Week 6 practice report issued Wednesday, but his upgrade to full activity a day later clears up any concern about his availability. The status of Davante Adams (shoulder) is a little more muddled after he was listed as a limited participant Thursday, but the expectation at this stage is that both of the Raiders' top two wideouts will be ready to play Sunday against the Patriots. In the four games that both players have suited up this season, Adams and Meyers have dominated the passing-game looks. Adams has averaged 11.5 targets per game in those four contests, while Meyers has averaged nine targets.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: WRS to Start

    I always love the narrative of players facing their former team, and Meyers, Jimmy Garoppolo and even Josh McDaniels get to face the Patriots in Week 6. New England would love to have Meyers back right now with how he's played this season since he's scored at least 15.5 PPR points in three of four games -- and all three starts with Garoppolo under center. With Garoppolo, Meyers is averaging 10.7 targets, 8.3 receptions, 80.3 yards and 1.0 touchdowns per game, and he should stay hot against the Patriots. Without pass rusher Matthew Judon (biceps) and cornerback Christian Gonzalez (shoulder), Meyers should have the chance for a revenge game New England.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Limited on Wednesday's estimate

    Meyers was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report due to a wrist injury, Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee reports. The Raiders didn't practice Wednesday after playing Monday, but Meyers would have been limited had the team held a formal session. Fellow wide receiver Davante Adams (shoulder) was listed as a non-participant, but at this stage, there's little reason to believe that either of Las Vegas' starting wideouts is in danger of sitting out Sunday against Meyers' former team, the Patriots.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Contrarian DFS Play

    I think more people will expect Jimmy Garoppolo to go back to Davante Adams after a quiet Week 5, but this is the rare double revenge game and Myers' departure is fresh. he's shown big-time upside when teams attempt to take away Adams and that's exactly what a typical Belichick defense would do.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Bounces back as starting QB returns

    Meyers turned 10 targets into seven receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 17-13 win over Green Bay. Meyers welcomed back starter Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) with open arms after receiving a season-low four targets Week 4 with rookie Aidan O'Connell filling in for the injured starter. Meyers finished as the Raiders' leading receiver with fellow starter Davante Adams (shoulder) playing at less than 100 percent Monday. The former has now reached double-digit targets in all three games that both he and Garoppolo have been active in this season. Meyers is on pace for his first 1,000-yard season after achieving a 25-274-3 receiving line through four starts with his new club. The former Patriot will begin preparing to face his old club in a home matchup against New England in Week 6.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Overlooked by O'Connell

    Meyers recorded two receptions on four targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Chargers. Meyers had proven to be a key target for Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) in two games this season, commanding 10 and 12 targets. However, he lost out significantly with Aidan O'Connell under center, as Davante Adams and Josh Jacobs were the only two pass catchers to be targeted more than four times. The good news for Meyers is that Garoppolo is likely to return in time for a Week 5 matchup against the Packers.

  • Raiders' Jakobi Meyers: Sleeper WRs

    We'll see who is starting at quarterback for the Raiders in Week 4 at the Chargers with Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) banged up, but Meyers should be considered a borderline starter in all leagues. His Raiders tenure has been great so far since he scored at least 15.5 PPR points in each of the two games he played (he missed Week 2 at Buffalo with a concussion), and he's averaging 11.5 targets in each outing. The Chargers are also No. 1 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers, with eight guys already scoring at least 11.0 PPR points against this secondary.
