Best Ball Spotlight: Jakobi Meyers Joins Las Vegas Raiders on a 3-Year Deal
With Jakobi Meyers joining the Las Vegas Raiders on a 3-year deal, Underdog Fantasy Best Ball drafters are wondering if he’s a worthwhile pick at his current ADP of 92.6. To make an informed decision, it’s important to consider Meyers’ potential market share in a talented Raiders offense. In this article, we’ll analyze the factors at play and help you decide whether Meyers is a smart choice for your draft strategy.

With the likes of Davante Adams, Hunter Renfroe, Foster Moreau, and Josh Jacobs to contend with, it is reasonable to be skeptical of Meyers’ role in the offense.
First, we should anticipate Davante Adams getting a market share of 30-35%. He’s the unquestioned alpha in the passing offense.
That being said, the Raiders did attempt 586 passes in 2022 which was good for 12th in the NFL. Jimmy Garoppolo completes around 65-68% of his passes on a yearly basis, a slight increase from Derek Carr but, not a huge increase by any means.
Assuming everyone is healthy, it should be pretty safe to expect Meyers to get 85-90 targets or a market share of around 15%. That could definitely increase to the 100 mark if there are injuries around him in the receiving core.
That’s some solid value in the 7th or 8th round!
