By far the top guy in Chicago, though offense is not much to get excited about. Despite breakout season, still behind Diggs and Rudolph on Bradford's target list.
Chet Gresham

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.Thielen proved to be a consistent fantasy player last season and should be a top target in the Vikings' offense once again.
Staff Rankings
QB List
If there's one thing you can say about Cameron Meredith, it's this: he's a number one option in an NFL passing offense. Unfortunately, that passing offense is the Chicago Bears, but he should be their top option and should be in for a decent amount of targets. Unfortunately he'll be competing with Victor Cruz, Kendall Wright, and Marcus Wheaton, but there's plenty of upside with Meredith.It wouldn't be shocking to see Thielen overtake Stefon Diggs as the number one passing option in the Vikings offense, especially since he saw just 20 fewer targets than Diggs last year but finished with more yards. Sam Bradford isn't a great quarterback, but he's had a full year in the Vikings offense, he should be better prepared this year than he was once he was thrown into the team last year, and with that will come an increase in production for Thielen I believe.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The Bears should end up passing a fair amount and Glennon is better than he is getting credit for, but Meredith is clearly the second most talented wideout for the Bears and while he is generally regarded as the WR1, that will change in short time.Thielen notched 69 receptions and nearly 1,000 yards last year despite starting only 10 games. It is clear that he and Sam Bradford have a connection, which should be trusted heading into this season. While Diggs is technically the #1 for Minnesota, it is quite possible Thielen ends up leading the Vikings in receiving again.
Kevin Wheeler

"Smooth is probably the best word to describe him." - I think Glennon has a little crush on Cameron Meredith. As a UDFA from a small school Meredith wasn't on anyone's radar at this time last year. He wasn't even active for the first two weeks of the season. Meredith finished last year with 66 receptions for 888 yards, in the 12 games he started he finished in the top-12 receivers 5 times (PPR scoring). His burst, agility, and catch radius scores are absolutely through the roof compared to others. His current ADP is in the ninth round so strike while the price is low. Meredith is one of our possible "league winners" this year so stay tuned for more . He showed flashes of greatness, but he isn't consistent enough to start on a regular basis. He has his best games when Diggs is out. Big contract was just signed so they plan on using him a bunch, I've moved him way up.

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 second half of the season in 2016. He could very well take over as the top option in the passing game in 2017. Auction Value $9
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.
