Recovering from an ACL and partial MCL tear that cost him all of 2017, Meredith hopes to be ready to open the season. Now that he left the Bears to join Drew Brees in the Big Easy, drafters can't forget about someone who averaged 63.4 YPG in 2016. He's pegged to supplant Ted Ginn Jr. as the second WR on an elite offense, so early drafters should bet on a healthy return if he falls to the late rounds.Commencing his NFL career at age 23, Ridley is a precise route runner who gives Matt Ryan another valuable weapon in an offense poised for improvement. Yet the Falcons brought mostly everyone back besides Taylor Gabriel, who garnered 51 targets as their third WR. Ridley would likely need a Julio Jones or Mohamed Sanu injury to deliver any consistent results.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Although Meredith is far from a sure thing, the word is that he is recovering well from surgery and should be the number two wide receiver in Drew Brees' offense. Now that he is on the Saints big things could be in store if he gets a chance at the starting wide receiver two job.Although Ridley wasn't drafted as the top receiver in the class, he is certainly the most polished. Sure, he's got a guy named Julio Jones hogging targets in his offense, but Ridley should see enough targets to justify owning since he is playing with the MVP from two seasons ago.
Staff Rankings
QB List
"I bet you forgot about me huh?", Meredith remarks snidely with arms crossed and head tilted. Signing with the Saints in the offseason following a season ending ACL tear, Meredith figures to be the primary slot receiver for a perennially potent Saints offense. Assuming he recovers fully, which all by all accounts he should, and rookie Tre'Quan Smith doesn't suddenly shift from a downfield receiver to a slot receiver, Meredith should be in store for steady receptions and yards, possibly as a solid WR3. I like his upside at WR53.He was a Bama receiver, which means he's polished and ready to compete. However, he's in a very full offense and has to compete with the great Mohammed Sanu for #2 receiver targets. Not enough upside for me to even draft him.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Meredith looks like he'll be ready to go for training camp, and as long as that pans out, I think he could push for targets, which with Drew Brees is a good thing.Ridley is NFL ready and should be able to challenge Mohammed Sanu for the No. 2 receiver spot this season.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was a knee injury that looked like it could be a career-ender, but Meredith latched on with the Saints this offseason and will now be catching passes from Drew Brees. Shortly after snagging him, the Saints cut ties with Willie Snead, opening up the slot role that Meredith played so well while with the Bears. Meredith's sample size is relatively small, but when you rack up 888 yards and four touchdowns from Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley, there's plenty of optimism. The issue is that Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara, Ted Ginn, and maybe even Ben Watson are ahead of him in the pecking order. He's likely to have some big weeks, but I wouldn't expect a weekly contributor.I banged the drum for Ridley all offseason, saying he was the most pro-ready receiver in the draft. When he was taken by the Falcons, it was tough to love the landing spot, as Julio Jones demands a lot of targets. With that, Ridley will see a lot of No. 2 cornerbacks in man coverage, meaning he's going to have some big weeks. Think about Taylor Gabriel's effect he had on the Falcons offense in his first year there and that's likely what you'll get out of Ridley in 2018. He's just a WR4/5, but he's going to have some massive weeks.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
"Expect Meredith in old "Colston Role" at slot WR between Michael Thomas & Ted Ginn." @EvanSilva He appears to be healthy,he has avoided the PUP list and is in camp the first day. Baring set-backs he could be the sleeper of the draft right now (7/26).  
Raju Byfield

Meredith should easily pass Ginn in targets if he proves to be healthyLanded in poor spot for immediate fantasy value; will have to pass Sanu in target pecking order before he realizes week to week fantasy value
