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.Maclin was a big old dud last season, but much was due to injuries and a conservative passing attack. Now with the Ravens, he should see a more lucrative number of targets. As long as he's healthy, we should see him move back closer to his normal numbers.
Corey Parson

Meredith will be the top receiver in the Bears' offense. An 80-plus reception season is very possible. Auction Value $ 14 Maclin should step right in and take over as the top target for Joe Flacco in Baltimore. Auction Value $12

Mike Tagliere

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. In what was probably the best move for his fantasy value, Maclin was released by the Chiefs only to be picked up by the Ravens just a few days later. It's rare for the Chiefs to total more than 500 pass attempts, while the Ravens led the NFL with 678 pass attempts last year. They also lost Steve Smith, whose role now belongs to Maclin. Over his time with the Ravens, Smith totaled 8.32 targets per game. If Maclin takes over that role and sees 130 targets, he's a steal at his current ADP.
Kevin Wheeler

With Jeffery gone Meredith is solidly the top 50 WR, he's definitely a candidate to really break-out this year. June news- Meredith has injured his thumb, might need surgery, still expected to be back for the start of training camp.Cut by KC on 6/2, What i wrote in March = Seems to me that he's being phased out of the game plan with Kelce and Hill emerging. He could have a bounce-back year if he stays healthy and benefits from lighter coverage.
