Crossword Genius

Just adjust my reel (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

merely

'just' is the definition.
(I know that just can be written as merely)

'adjust my reel' is the wordplay.
'adjust' indicates anagramming the letters.
'my'+'reel'='myreel'
'myreel' is an anagram of 'MERELY'.

(Other definitions for merely that I've seen before include "Simply - only" , "'Only, and nothing more (6)'" , "Just one" .)
