Cameron Meredith not expected to return to action until training camp

Chicago Bears head coach John Fox told the media wide receiver Cameron Meredith (thumb) remained sidelined at the start of the team's mandatory minicamp Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Although Meredith is expected to miss all of the team's mandatory minicamp this week, Fox believes he "should be ready at the start of training camp or shortly thereafter." Coming off of a 66-888-4 season last season, Meredith appears poised to surpass those totals in 2017. Not only is he the presumed No. 1 receiver on the depth chart, but there are tremendous injury concerns surrounding the players below him that include Victor Cruz and Kevin White. At his WR42 ADP in PPR scoring formats, Meredith is worth a flier in the mid-to-late rounds of upcoming fantasy drafts despite the uncertainties at the quarterback position.

Cameron Meredith (thumb) will be ready for training camp

Chicago Bears head coach John Fox stated that Cameron Meredith will be ready for training camp, despite sitting out mandatory minicamp with a thumb injury.

Fantasy Impact

This is good news for Meredith, who is going to need as many reps in training camp with his new starting QB. Meredith finished last season as a top 30 fantasy WR, and we should see another leap forward this season as he is the featured option in the Bears passing attack. Meredith has WR2 upside with the expected volume increase.

Cameron Meredith suffers minor injury

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Chicago Bears wide receiver Cameron Meredith (thumb) suffered a thumb ligament injury at OTAs Thursday and will miss the remainder of the team's offseason program.

Fantasy Impact

Although Meredith will miss the remainder of the Bears' offseason program, Schefter reports that he is still expected to be ready for training camp in late July. The impending third-year wideout is currently slated to open the 2017 season as Chicago's No. 1 receiver, but his injury setback could derail him from that spot. In Meredith's absence, the newly-signed Victor Cruz will likely get extra work with the Bears' top unit.

Cameron Meredith throws a touchdown pass against the Vikings

Cameron Meredith caught four of six targets for 61 yards on Sunday against the Vikings. Meredith also threw a two-yard touchdown pass to Matt Barkley.

Fantasy Impact

Meredith really came on at the end of the season, totaling 300 yards receiving over his final three games. Meredith is under contract with the Bears for another season and, depending on whether Alshon Jeffery remains with the team, could move into WR3 consideration.

Cameron Meredith comes up big in Week 16

Cameron Meredith caught nine of 12 targets for 135 yards and a touchdown on Saturday against the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact

This was the second consecutive game for Meredith with nine catches and over 100 yards receiving, as he and Matt Barkley look to have developed some real chemistry. Meredith and the Bears face a tough test in Week 17 against the Vikings, but, as Green Bay showed this weekend, the secondary is certainly beatable.
