Betting Breakdown: Week 8 vs. Jets

Meyers at Meadowlands

As was the case with many Patriot players on Monday night, it was a poor performance from Jakobi Meyers as New England’s passing attack struggled with Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe. Despite getting a 30-yard score, Meyers saw season-lows in targets (2), receptions (2) and receiving yards (34).

Week 8 against the Jets should provide a bounce-back opportunity for New England’s leading receiver. Lining up for the majority of his snaps in the slot, Meyers should avoid New York’s top two cornerbacks in Sauce Gardner and DJ Reed Jr. That likely ties him with Michael Carter II, who has given up the sixth-most receptions and the eighth-most receiving yards. yards in slot coverage this season.

Meyers should also get a boost with Mac Jones as New England’s starting quarterback. He has received 19 total targets in Jones’ two games, compared to just 14 in Zappe’s three. After being held to less than 50 yards for the first time this season last week, he topped the mark again this week.

The Pick: Jakobi Meyers 48.5+ receiving yards (-115)
