2019 Fantasy Outlook
Though Meredith was returning from a torn ACL and MCL that sidelined him for all of 2017, New Orleans saw enough potential in the 6-foot-3 wideout during his first two seasons in Chicago to ink him to a two-year deal in free agency last April. The gambit didn't pay off, however, as Meredith failed to recapture his prior form during the preseason and ended up being a healthy scratch for the first two games. He debuted in Week 3 but was never able to carve out a meaningful role in the rotation. While Meredith nabbed nine of 10 targets for 114 yards and a score, he played less than 50 percent of the snaps in each of his six games. Clearly still bothered by the prior left knee injury, Meredith opted for arthroscopic surgery in November, spelling an end to his season. He participated in the start of training camp, only to be released after a few days. Meredith now hopes to find a new team that will give him the chance to compete for a roster spot.

The Patriots placed Meredith (undisclosed) on the PUP list Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Meredith has been a shell of himself since sustaining a devastating left knee injury in August 2017, being reduced to just six appearances in his sole season with New Orleans last year. After he was limited in the Saints' offseason program this spring, he was eventually cut loose early in training camp. With the Pats, Meredith joins a receiving corps without much set in stone behind Julian Edelman (thumb) and 2019 first-round pick N'Keal Harry. Beyond that duo, the healthy options are Phillip Dorsett, Maurice Harris, Dontrelle Inman and Braxton Berrios. Meredith will be delayed in on-field work while he works his way through an undisclosed injury.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

A former undrafted free agent, Meredith was in line for a big role last season before suffering a torn ACL and MCL during the preseason. He had a strong year in 2016 despite not even suiting up until Week 3, with 9.2 YPT and 60 catches in the 12 games in which he saw at least 40 snaps. At 6-3, 207, Meredith has good size and is also fast - 4.42 40 - with the physical specs to be a No. 1 WR. As such, the Saints signed him to a two-year, $9.5 million offer sheet this April - the Bears declined to match - pairing him with Drew Brees. Michael Thomas is the team's clear No. 1 WR, and the Saints morphed into a run-first offense last year, but Meredith could be the team's No. 2 with Ted Ginn in a field-stretching role. Meredith was held out of team drills during OTAs, but he returned as a full participant for the start of training camp.
With Alshon Jeffery gone, Meredith, a former undrafted free agent, was in line a for a big role this season before suffering a torn ACL and MCL during the preseason. Meredith had a strong year in 2016 despite not even suiting up until Week 3, with 9.2 YPT and 60 catches in the 12 games where he saw at least 40 snaps. At 6-3, 207, Meredith has good size, and he's fast -- 4.42 40 -- with the physical specs to be the No. 1 WR. He'll hope to recover in time for the 2018 season.
Meredith, a local product from Illinois State, figures to just be a camp body for the Bears after signing with the team when he wasn’t selected in the NFL draft. He offers an interesting blend of size (6-foot-3) and speed (4.42 40-yard dash time at his pro day), but his lack of experience against high-end competition could be exposed in training camp. The practice squad is a more likely destination for him than the 53-man roster.
