2022 Fantasy Outlook
Meyers finally scored his first TD Week 10 last year, and within a few weeks he'd reached career highs in every other major counting stat, albeit with career lows for yards per catch and yards per target. Rookie QB Mac Jones played better than Cam Newton the year before, and Meyers was probably lucky in the first place to post 9.0 YPT and a 72.8 percent catch rate in a Newton-led offense. The most likely scenario for 2022 is Meyers recovering some of the efficiency but failing to match last year's 126 targets. That's partly because the team has a more experienced version of Jones in Year 2, and partly on account of a more diverse passing game with DeVante Parker and second-round pick Tyquan Thornton added at WR while RB James White and TE Jonnu Smith return from major injuries. The improved depth likely will cost Meyers snaps and targets on the perimeter, which accounted for about a third of his volume, but he'll still be the primary slot man and one of Jones' most trusted receivers.

Participating in training camp

Meyers, who had been limited some during the Patriots' offseason activities due to "bumps and bruises," participated in Wednesday's training camp practice, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
Meyers finished the 2021 season with a team-high 83 catches (on 126 targets) for 866 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 17 games. During the upcoming season, he's expected to remain a key cog in a New England wide receiver corps that also will feature newcomer DeVante Parker, fellow returnees Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor and rookie second-round pick Tyquan Thornton. Even when all of the team's options at receiver are all available, Meyers should continue to see a fair share of target volume from second-year quarterback Mac Jones. In that context, the 25-year-old is capable of continuing to yield decent fantasy production in PPR-friendly leagues, though Meyers' history of infrequent trips to the end zone caps his upside in touchdown-heavy formats.

Meyers figures to compete with newcomer Kendrick Bourne for a starting spot this coming season. It's assumed that free-agent acquisition Nelson Agholor will be a part of the first-team offense, but following the retirement of Julian Edelman, the rest of the Patriots' wide receiver depth chart remains unsettled. Though it's clear that the team sees something in Bourne, Meyers led the Pats last season with 59 catches for 729 yards in 14 games. Meanwhile, 2019 first-rounder N'Keal Harry also is in the mix, but his role is undefined. In that context, Meyers still has an opportunity to carve out a niche in what should be an improved passing attack in 2021, but with the Patriots likely to run plenty and feature two-tight end sets, earning steady volume figures to be an issue for any of the team's wideouts.
Meyers, who joined the Patriots as an undrafted free agent, beat the odds and stuck around with the team last year. He even managed to log a few PPR-worthy efforts in the process, while finishing the regular season with 26 catches for 359 yards in 15 games. Heading into the 2020 campaign, the 6-2, 200-pounder may have to fight to keep his slot in New England's wide receiver rotation behind Julian Edelman, given that N'Keal Harry will be healthy out of the gate and Damiere Byrd was added in free agency.
With N'Keal Harry on IR, Meyers is sticking around as a depth option behind Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, Demaryius Thomas and Phillip Dorsett. Making the team was a feat for the undrafted free agent, but additional roster attrition would have to occur in order for Meyers to merit fantasy consideration.
