2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Meredith, the 3rd-year receiver burst onto the scene last year to lead the Bears in receiving after not seeing playing time until Week 3. As the No.2 on a slow moving offense (30th in plays per game), Meredith's usage was sporadic and inconsistent, often times just serving as a deep threat that was targeted only a few times a game.

The expectation is quite different in 2017. Meredith slides into the No.1 receiver role for the Bears following the departure of Alshon Jeffery. Jeffery was up and down the last two years due to injuries, but he leaves behind 94 targets, and a few of those should go toward Meredith. The former undrafted free agent showed he could be more than a complementary player, as he tallied four 100-yard games, and had 6 or more receptions in five of his 14 games. From all accounts he was playing well during off-season work before a thumb injury sidelined him. He should be healthy for camp, but it's never helpful for a young player to miss off-season work, especially with a new quarterback coming in.

I have a sneaky feeling that Meredith could return some decent value this season. He put up some impressive numbers on a bad team that had street free agent level talents starting at quarterback. Mike Glennon isn't exactly Joe Montana, but does provide an upgrade at the position. Meredith doesn't exactly have a laundry list of talent vying for targets behind him, so I expect him to well surpass his total from last year. If White can at least provide a reputable threat to attract some defensive attention, and opposing defenses continue to stack the box to stop Jordan Howard, Meredith could be a low end WR2 that you could steal for a WR3 price.

Talkin' Bears wide receivers
Wheaton pegged for deep threat role
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jul 19, 8:00 am

Chicgao Bears
The Bears intend for Wheaton to be their deep threat, filling a role that was pegged for White before he suffered multiple broken bones in his left leg. Victor Cruz will compete with Kendall Wright for the slot receiver job. (Chicago Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Cameron Meredith missed most of the Spring with a torn ligament in his thumb but the Bears are hoping he will be ready for training camp. Meredith, Kevin White and Markus Wheaton who got $5 million guaranteed from the Bears earlier this off-season are considered locks for the roster. Ultimately, White and Meredith are the only names fantasy owners should give consideration to.


Injury Cameron Meredith out until training camp
Ligament damage in thumb
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jun 1, 8:00 pm

Chicgao Bears
The Bears will be without Cameron Meredith for the remainder of organized team activities as well as the team’s mandatory mini-camp later this month after the third-year receiver suffered ligament damage in one of his thumbs during Thursday’s practice. (Chicago Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Surgery has not been ruled out as of now. With a recovery time of 6-8 weeks, Meredith is in danger of missing the early portions of training camp. It's a setback for the starting receiver who projects to be the Bears best option in the passing game in 2017.


Victor Cruz signs one-year deal with Bears
Chicago revamping receiving corps
By: Mike Krueger | Thu May 25, 2:00 pm

Chicgao Bears
The Bears’ continued attempts to energize a reshuffling offense continued Thursday when the team agreed to a one-year contract with veteran receiver Victor Cruz. (Chicago Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Cruz missed the majority of 2014 and 2015 with various ailments including a serious knee injury. The Bears are revamping their receiving corps after losing Alshon Jeffery to the Eagles and have a number of options including Cameron Meredith, Kevin White, Josh Bellamy, Kendall Wright, Rueben Randle and Markus Wheaton. It won't be easy for Cruz to make the team.
