2020 Fantasy Outlook
Though not a splashy signing, Byrd has a chance to compete for the Patriots' No. 3 wideout role, a vacancy open now that Phillip Dorsett is no longer with the team. If Byrd can claim the assignment, he'd work behind veteran slot maven Julian Edelman and 2019 first-rounder N'Keal Harry. The 27-year-old wideout is coming off a 2019 campaign in which he caught a career-high 32 passes for 359 yards and a TD in 11 games for Arizona. Even if the 5-9, 180-pounder doesn't end up being a high-volume target with his new team, the speedy Byrd does at least also offer special teams value. Read Past Outlooks

Sticks as starter
WRNew England Patriots
September 21, 2020
Byrd caught six passes (nine targets) for 72 yards in Sunday's 35-30 loss to Seattle.
ANALYSIS
Byrd remained as a starter opposite N'Keal Harry, logging 85 percent of the team's offensive snaps. The production finally caught up with the playing time after he started Week 1 and had zero receptions. Byrd should continue to see the field for the majority of offensive snaps against the Raiders on Sunday.

Byrd's efforts on the Panthers' practice squad were rewarded by a promotion to Carolina's 53-man roster for eight games last season. As a reserve receiver, his involvement was understandably limited, but Byrd still managed to score twice from his 10 receptions. He'll once again aim to make the team this season.
Byrd spent most of his rookie year on the Panthers practice squad, but did make one appearance during the regular season, catching his lone target for 16 yards. Like last year, the local product is in competition with Brenton Bersin and Keyarris Garrett for a roster spot this term.
Will compete for a roster spot this season.
