2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
I might as well copy and paste the blurb I had here last year. Once again the potential of White wasn't realized in 2016, as the former 1st rounder missed a majority of the year after suffering a devastating lower leg injury. The injury occurred to the same leg that caused him to miss the 2015 season, and while off-season reports have him healthy and ready to go, it's fair to wonder just how much speed and agility he has left after missing so much time.

It's clear after his four-game stint last season that the Bears desperately want a return on their investment in White. He piled up 36 targets in those games, but unfortunately didn't do much with them. He caught just over half of them, and cashed them in for a measly 187 yards.

The fact remains that no one really knows what White is capable of. He was physically dynamic at West Virginia, but struggled mentally in his first training camp prior to his initial injury. If he has even lost a little because of the injuries, it's hard to imagine him making much of a fantasy splash. He's going to have plenty of opportunity to make plays with only uninspiring veterans and a young undrafted free agent with him on the depth chart, so for those reasons alone I'd be happy to take a flier on him late in my draft as a very low risk, decent reward option.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Cam Meredith injury update
Only ACL and MCL injured
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 30, 12:30 pm

Chicgao Bears
Relatively good news for #Bears WR Cameron Meredith, following MRIs and tests: It’s only the ACL and MCL damaged. Potentially back by OTAs. (Ian Rapoport via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Bears get somewhat good news knowing that their top wide receiver has a good chance at being ready in time for next season. None of the Bears' other receiver options jump off the page considering the offense figures to be run heavy and feature an unproven quarterback. Nonetheless, Kevin White and Markus Wheaton (thumb) are the best fits to replace Meredith's production on the outside.

Injury Cam Meredith carted off, knee injury
Bears lose best receiver in 3rd pre-season game
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 27, 1:22 pm

Chicgao Bears
Bears receiver Cameron Meredith left the field on a cart Sunday afternoon with his left leg in an air cast. The severity of his injury is not yet known. But Meredith appeared to be in excruciating pain when he was hit by Titans safety Kevin Byard at the end of a 16-yard reception. (Chicago Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Meredith's leg bent inward and looked brutal. While there's no official word, it's difficult to imagine Meredith escaping with a minor injury. The TV broadcast didn't show a replay. Kevin White will likely become a bigger focal point in the passing offense. Kendall Wright and Victor are battling for the starting slot position.

Kevin White battling "confidence" issues
Third-year Bears WR has played just four games his first two seasons
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 1, 8:34 am

Chicgao Bears
Kevin White is struggling to flash the trademark confidence and shine he showed in college after suffering two catastrophic injuries to the same leg during his first two pro campaigns. Receivers coach Zach Azzanni resorted to showing White some of his West Virginia highlights, just to remind him of the elite collegiate player he was and how he attacked catches with a competitive edge. (Chicago Tribune)

FFToday's Take: It's easy to forget just how explosive and talented White was at WV, but there's still a chance he emerges as a playmaker for the Bears this season. He's not highly coveted in fantasy drafts, so he makes a decent late-round pick given his upside.

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.
