Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Jakobi Meyers caught six of his seven targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Meyers finished the game with his most receiving yards since Week 3. Since the coaching and quarterback changes, Meyers has become a secondary option in the Raiders passing attack, but he found success before the team's bye week. Meyers will face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14. The Vikings defense is much better against the run than the pass, so Meyers could be in for another strong performance. Based on his recent production, Meyers should still be considered a WR3/flex play, but fantasy managers can feel optimistic about him moving forward.

New England Patriots rookie wide receivers Demario Douglas (concussion) and Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) have been ruled out for the Thursday night contest versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Douglas suffered a concussion in Week 12 and will now miss his second straight game. Receivers DeVante Parker (knee) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) are questionable to play, so the worst offense in football could be extremely thin at the receiver position on the road in a tough matchup against the Steelers. Parker led the Patriots in receiving last week with Douglas out and he should once again have a substantial role if he's active. However, all of New England's pass-catchers have a scary low fantasy ceiling and floor. Douglas had been quarterback Mac Jones' favorite target before Douglas' injury and before Jones was benched in favor of Bailey Zappe.

New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) has officially been ruled out for the Week 14 contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night. Stevenson suffered the dreaded high-ankle sprain in Sunday's Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Not only will the 25-year-old sit out this week, but he's expected to miss more time as well. It's bad news for fantasy managers counting on New England's lead back to help them get into the playoffs in their leagues. An already terrible offense that was shut out last week will now turn to veteran Ezekiel Elliott as their backfield leader, with Ty Montgomery and JaMycal Hasty chipping in as backups. In this low-scoring offense, Zeke will be a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex in a bad matchup against Pittsburgh.

Tests revealed that New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) suffered a right high-ankle sprain in the Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers and is now expected to miss "a few weeks," according to a source. High-ankle sprains usually keep players out anywhere from three to five weeks, so fantasy managers realistically may not get Stevenson back before the end of their fantasy season. With the 25-year-old sidelined, Ezekiel Elliott (thigh) should operate as the team's primary back, beginning this Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ty Montgomery and JaMycal Hasty will battle for change-of-pace duties behind him. Given New England's terrible offense and tough matchup against Pittsburgh, Elliott will merely be a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex with the added volume.

New England Patriots rookie wide receivers Demario Douglas (concussion) and Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) were listed as non-participants on Monday's estimated practice report. Douglas, who had become New England's most targeted wideout after Kendrick Bourne's (knee) season-ending injury, suffered a concussion in Week 12 and did not play in the Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Neither he nor Boutte, a rookie that has been active only three times in 2023, are likely to suit up on a short week this Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. DeVante Parker was the biggest beneficiary in the passing game with Douglas out this past Sunday, as he led the team in receiving, but it's extremely tough to trust any Patriots receivers in fantasy lineups right now.
