| 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.
| Cam Meredith injury update|
Only ACL and MCL injured

|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.

Bears lose best receiver in 3rd pre-season game
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 27, 1:22 pm
|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.
