Despite catching passes from the same quarterbacks and seeing essentially the same number of targets, Meredith finished with 67 more yards and two more touchdowns than Alshon Jeffery last year. He suffered a broken thumb during OTA's which could derail his ascension up the depth chart, as he's out until training camp. There is plenty of risk considering the Bears signing Victor Cruz, Kendall Wright, and Marcus Wheaton, but we also know that there's plenty of upside. Despite the fact that I'm a huge Stefon Diggs fan, one cannot escape the fact that Thielen saw 20 fewer targets, yet finished with 64 more yards and two more touchdowns. Once Diggs moved into the slot, Thielen started to do most of his damage, including his 202-yard, two touchdown performance in Week 16 against the Packers. He's still got a lot to prove, but 2016 was incredibly promising for the former undrafted free agent.

Meredith will be the top receiver in the Bears Offense, an 80 plus reception season is very possible. Auction Value $ 14 Thielen popped in the 2nd half of the season in 2016. He could very well take over as the top option in the passing game in 2017 . Auction Value $11

Meredith will take over as the main receiver in Chicago, which at the very least means he should be in line for a big contingency of targets.
