    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Meredith may receive more targets in the passing game with Ted Ginn Jr. sidelined. He is coming off a solid Week 5 performance but is facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense this week. He could be a flex option in some leagues but can also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 10/17/2018 4:12pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Meredith caught five passes for 71 yards in his last game and could have a bigger role if Ted Ginn Jr. is not able to play. He will have a tough matchup in Week 7 but could be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 10/13/2018 6:20pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) said 'every week has been an improvement' as he returns from knee surgery, and he is just trying to make the most of the opportunities when they arise.

    Huddle Up: Meredith saw a season-high in catches, targets and yards against the Washington Redskins in Week 5 with Ted Ginn out of action, and his best could be yet to come as he continues his recovery. He's someone to keep an eye on if you need help at receiver.

  • Posted: 10/6/2018 12:52pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) was limited in practice Saturday, Oct. 6, but he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 5 game with the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Meredith might draw the start in place of the injured Ted Ginn, so he might be a decent streaming option for those dealing with byes or injury issues.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 4:16pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: This appears to be the same knee issue Meredith dealt with going into last week's contest. He ultimately played and enjoyed his best outing thus far as a Saint, hauling in three of four targets for 32 yards. Meredith has the potential to be a regular force in New Orleans' potent offense but owners must monitor his health first throughout the week.

  • Posted: 9/27/2018 3:36pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Meredith caught his only target in Week 3 and recorded a touchdown but is not a big part of the passing game at this time. Owners should avoid him until he is able to post better numbers.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 9:04am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith is active for the team's Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Sept. 23. Meredith had been a healthy scratch in Weeks 1 and 2.

    Huddle Up: There had been high hopes this summer for Meredith, but he's quickly faded from fantasy radars with back-to-back inactive designations to start the season. He could be a sneaky play, though, today for those who have stuck with him after WRs Michael Thomas and Tedd Ginn and RB Alvin Kamara have accounted for a whopping 77.2 percent of Drew Brees' 79 targets so far.

  • Posted: 9/14/2018 11:26am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith is still 'getting up to speed' in the offense, according to head coach Sean Payton.

    Huddle Up: Meredith was unable to participate much during the offseason program or the preseason due to injury, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he was a game-day inactive for at least another week or two. Payton made it clear during the summer he had a plan in place about how he wanted to use Meredith, so owners should keep him stashed if at all possible and near the top of their watch lists if they can't. He should have WR3 upside when he's ready.

  • Posted: 8/28/2018 6:26pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) is expected to see 'quite a bit of work' in Thursday's preseason finale against the Los Angeles Rams after being handled conservatively throughout training camp as part of the process to ensure no major setbacks in his preparation for the regular season follow ACL surgery last season. 'He's picked it up well. The key is just, hes a little behind just because of the injury. But hes moving around real well. Hes a quick learner. Hell get quite a bit of work (Thursday),' head coach Sean Payton said.

    Huddle Up: The lack of snaps and production in the preseason has plummeted Meredith's ADP in recent weeks, but he's still a great late-round stash in all leagues. The former Chicago Bear was signed to assume the Marques Colston "big slot" role in the Saints' offense and there's nothing to suggest that won't still happen once he is up to speed and confident in his knee again. He boasts WR3 upside and possibly more if he can get back to his 2016 form.

  • Posted: 8/28/2018 3:09am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) has recorded zero catches in 48 preseason snaps, which also includes a dropped pass that turned into an interception. He played mostly with the backups in the team's most recent preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: Meredith was impressive in his second NFL season two years ago, when he hauled in 66 receptions for 888 yards and four touchdowns. However, a torn ACL cost him all of last year, and it appears he's still trying to find his footing as he works his way back from that serious injury. While he makes a lot of sense as a sleeper on a high-octane Saints offense, Meredith could easily slip on the depth chart if he doesn't pick up his play.

  • Posted: 8/17/2018 10:38pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) was able to make his preseason debut Friday, Aug. 17, against the Arizona Cardinals. He was only targeted once and failed to catch the pass right at it which was intercepted after it bounced into the air. He wasn't happy with his performance, but felt good as he makes his final steps in his recovery. 'It felt great,' Meredith said. 'Just getting out there, getting in the groove of things.'

    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.

  • Posted: 8/15/2018 10:25am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 15, but did not participate in team drills.

    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.

  • Posted: 8/4/2018 11:56am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) worked one-on-one with QB Drew Brees after practice Saturday, Aug. 4, as the quarterback showed Meredith routes in the end zone.

    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.

  • Posted: 8/3/2018 8:41pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) was held out of practice Friday, Aug. 3.

    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.

  • Posted: 7/24/2018 9:34am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith is the best bet to be the team's No. 2 receiver, according to Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune.

    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.

  • Posted: 7/17/2018 12:32am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) said that while he is still recovering from his knee injury and has been limited in team activities thus far, he is hopeful to be given the 'all clear' for training camp. 'On a scale of '1 to 10,' it's almost a 10? I haven't had a setback along the recovery process,' Meredith said of his injury. 'I'm gaining strength day by day, month by month. I'm excited to see how soon I can get back, but the main objective for me is to do as much as I can with the trainers to get ready for the season. My goal is to try and get back to training camp. As long as there aren't any setbacks or anything like that, it shouldn't be a problem.'

    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.

  • Posted: 5/24/2018 10:32am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) is way ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Sean Payton. Payton added that the Saints have a 'clear vision' on how they want to use their new receiver.

    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.

  • Posted: 4/24/2018 3:01pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Cameron Meredith (knee) is recovering well and might be able to participate in minicamp, according to head coach Sean Payton.

    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.

  • Posted: 4/11/2018 8:47pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans WR Cameron Meredith's (knee) offer sheet was not matched by the Chicago Bears 'reportedly' due to concerns over the health of his knee. However, Meredith said that he sees himself 'being 100 percent for at least the season,' with training camp being his goal. The Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts also expressed interest in the wide receiver.

    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.

  • Posted: 4/11/2018 12:22pm ET

    Chicago Bears restricted free-agent WR Cameron Meredith's two-year, $10 million offer sheet from the New Orleans Saints will not be matched by the Bears, according to a source. Meredith is officially a Saint.

    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.

  • Posted: 4/11/2018 12:17pm ET

    Chicago Bears restricted free-agent WR Cameron Meredith's two-year, $10 million offer sheet from the New Orleans Saints will not be matched by the Bears, according to a source. Meredith is officially a Saint.

    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.

  • Posted: 3/26/2018 1:48pm ET

    Chicago Bears restricted free-agent WR Cameron Meredith visited the New Orleans Saints last week, according to a source. Meredith has already met with the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens. The Bears have the option to match any offer sheet given to Meredith.

    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.

  • Posted: 3/21/2018 1:44pm ET

    Chicago Bears restricted free-agent WR Cameron Meredith will meet with the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, March 22.

    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.

  • Posted: 3/20/2018 2:41pm ET

    Chicago Bears restricted free-agent WR Cameron Meredith visited the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, March 20, according to a source. If they so desire the Bears would be able to match any offer the Colts give Meredith.

    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.

  • Posted: 3/5/2018 9:41pm ET

    Chicago Bears WR Cameron Meredith (knee) is expected to return to Halas Hall -- the team's headquarters -- this week for rehabilitation, which is 'as strong of a sign as you can have' that the club plans to tender him as a restricted free agent. Since he's coming off his knee injury, Chicago will 'likely' choose between the second-round level ($2.746 million) and the original-round amount ($1.797 million).

    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.
