Huddle Up: Meredith suffered a torn ACL and torn MCL in a preseason game last August as a member of the Chicago Bears. He played the entire first half and didn't show any ill effects of his injury. If he can regain his form and build up his stamina, he has WR3 upside while working with Drew Brees and the high-octane New Orleans offense.

Huddle Up: It's unclear what has been bothering Meredith, but it doesn't seem to be serious since he was on the practice field today. Monitor his status, but he has WR3 upside in one of the best passing offenses in the NFL.

Huddle Up: Meredith was held out of practice Friday due to what is believed to be a minor knee injury. He is expected to be a starter for the team this season, and he has the potential to be a useful WR4 with Drew Brees under center.

Huddle Up: There's no indication that Meredith's injury is anything serious, and he is expected to be a starter for the Saints this season. With Drew Brees running the show, Meredith is a WR4 with upside.

Huddle Up: Katzenstein makes the point Meredith has to be able to bounce back from the knee injury that forced him to miss the entire 2017 campaign, but he is the highest-paid receiver on the team and gives the Saints versatility with his ability to play inside or outside they don't otherwise have. Ticketed to play the 'big slot' that made Marques Colston a fantasy star years ago, Meredith is a great high-upside WR4 pick in the later rounds.

Huddle Up: Even if he's not fully cleared for the start of training camp, it's looking more like Meredith can at least be ready by Week 1. Only two years ago -- his last healthy season -- Meredith led the Bears with 66 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns. Being reunited with receivers coach Curtis Johnson in New Orleans should also help the 25-year-old potentially make a major impact in this high-powered offense, and thus, he's a great sleeper for 2018.

Huddle Up: If Meredith stays on this pace then there's a better than good chance he'll be fully available for training camp. The Saints won't want to push him too hard, though. New Orleans' crowded offense stunts Meredith's potential. As such, he's a WR4 or flex option.

Huddle Up: Meredith has promising prospects in one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL, but he'll have to stay on the field. If he can maintain good health he has WR3 upside.

Huddle Up: Meredith tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee last August, which resulted in him missing the entire 2017 season, so it's understandable if some teams were scared off over those concerns. At the same time, based on what he did a couple of seasons ago, Meredith will have a chance to break out into a useful fantasy option again if he can return strong. He'll have WR3 potential.

Huddle Up: Meredith is a welcome addition to one of the most pass happy offenses in the NFL. He'll compete for targets primarily alongside Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn with Willie Snead also garnering attention from the slot. Meredith probably would have seen more looks in Chicago, but his overall fantasy value is more promising in New Orleans. View him as a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4.

Huddle Up: Meredith's departure puts pressure on oft-injured Kevin White to stay healthy and makes Allen Robinson even more of a go-to target for the Bears. White is merely a late-round flier given his injury history, but Robinson makes for a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 as Mitchell Trubisky's No. 1 target.

Huddle Up: It's hard to envision the Bears not matching whatever offer sheet that is thrown Meredith's way, especially given Kevin White's injury history. When at full health, Meredith has WR3 upside.

Huddle Up: Baltimore has already added Michael Crabtree and John Brown to an underwhelming wide receiver corps. Meredith would make a nice complement opposite Crabtree with Brown in the slot, but Baltimore is where wide receivers' fantasy value goes to die.

Huddle Up: The Colts are making some decent moves to help improve Andrew Luck's offense. They've already signed Ryan Grant and Eric Ebron and have even added some offensive line help. It will be more difficult to acquire Meredith since he is a restricted free agent, but it's an intriguing marriage that is bound to be underrated if it comes to fruition.

Huddle Up: After enjoying a breakout campaign in 2016 that saw him log 66 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns, Meredith unfortunately never got the opportunity to follow it up, as his season was derailed before it even began when he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in training camp. He could be a solid sleeper next season, however, depending on his health to open up the year.

Huddle Up: Meredith is done for the 2017 season. His unfortunate injury paves the way for Kevin White to finally play like the first-round pick he was drafted as. It also opens the door for receivers like Kendall Wright and Markus Wheaton, who are now late-round sleeper options.
Posted: 8/27/2017 12:13pm ET
Huddle Up: If the report proves to be accurate, Meredith will obviously miss the rest of the season. Kevin White figures to become a target hog for as long as he can stay healthy in such a scenario, while the team's reliance on Jordan Howard figures to increase. Kendall Wright would also likely be worth drafting in the later rounds of deeper drafts.

Huddle Up: Meredith emerged as the Bears' top receiver in 2016 with 66 catches for 888 receiving yards last season, so any multi-week absence - which is almost certainly the case here - hurts a Chicago receiving corps that couldn't afford such a loss. Kevin White and Kendall Wright - likely in that order - figure to see the biggest increase in targets if Meredith misses significant time as expected.
