<sub>What are your guys thoughts on Jakobi Meyers? He has been tearing up the preseason and the reports coming out of training camp are that he and Tom Brady are clicking?</sub>

Meyers signed with New England as an undrafted free agent out of North Dakota State where he shined last year (92/1047/4 on 122 targets). Jakobi may emerge as the best slot option behind Julian Edelman.
Here’s a quote from Rotoworld about him:
Patriots coach Bill Belichick said WR Jakobi Meyers still has a “long way to go.”
“He’s got a long way to go in this league,” Belichick said at Monday’s press conference. “I certainly wouldn’t put him into the seasoned veteran category.” This is coachspeak from Belichick, but the Patriots have a history of slow playing rookies. Meyers made waves with a strong start to training camp, overshadowing first-rounder N’Keal Harry. It’d be surprising if he doesn’t earn a 53-man roster spot.
I like the direction of Meyers and he’s played well in the preseason. The Belichick position on him suggests that he’ll need some time to work his way into playable snaps. Worth a flier while the Josh Gordon news does push him down another notch.
