Cameron Meredith returns to practice

New Orleans Saints beat writer Nick Underhill is reporting WR Cameron Meredith (undisclosed) returned to practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Although he's been sidelined at practice and missed the preseason opener, Meredith resumed practicing on Wednesday -- he was out with an undisclosed injury that reportedly had nothing to do with his surgically repaired knee. This is uplifting news for a player coming off of a significant knee injury. While he could sit out another week of in-game action, Meredith's return is a positive sign for his long-term playing status. Continue to draft Meredith and his WR2 upside while he remains a value around the 10th round.

Cameron Meredith dealing with injury

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (undisclosed) remains sidelined with an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport is adding that Meredith's current injury, which has sidelined him for several consecutive practices, plus, the Saints preseason opener, is not related to his surgically repaired knee. However, while his current ailment is unknown, so does its severity. I'd monitor Meredith's situation closely as he is beginning to creep up draft boards. If he's ultimately okay, he could be confidently employed as a WR3/ Flex play with WR2 upside. But if this is another longterm injury, the wide receiver position is so deep that it may not be work the risk to add him.

Cameron Meredith practices in full

New Orleans Saints beat writer Mike Triplett is reporting WR Cameron Meredith (knee) took part in full-team drills on the first day of training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Avoiding the PUP list, Meredith participated in full-team drills on the first day of camp. And while the expectations are that the Saints will play it smart and ease him back into action, the fact that he's this active from the start is a tremendous step in the right direction. At a double-digit round ADP, Meredith's rising upside out-weighs the slight injury risk.

Cameron Meredith cleared for training camp

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said that newly-signed WR Cameron Meredith has been cleared to participate in training camp but that the team will limit his workload as Meredith recovers from an ACL and MCL injury that cost him the entire 2017 NFL campaign.

Fantasy Impact

Meredith has been ahead of schedule in his recovery but this announcement is great news for his odds of opening the season as the club's slot receiver. Meredith caught 66 balls in 14 games with Chicago in 2016 and looks like an excellent late-round target playing for a potent New Orleans offense.

Cameron Meredith 'way ahead of schedule'

Jeff Duncan of Nola.com writes that wide receiver Cameron Meredith is "way ahead of schedule" according to head coach Sean Payton. Meredith tore his ACL last preseason and missed the entire 2017 season. New Orleans signed the 25-year-old restricted free agent and he's expected to replace Willie Snead as the Saints' slot receiver.

Fantasy Impact

Meredith was very good in 2016, catching 66 passes for 888 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games with Chicago. If he is fully healthy by Week 1, as expected, Meredith is in an excellent position to potentially command 80+ targets for the high-octane Saints offense. Meredith is a strong sleeper candidate to target in the back-end of PPR drafts.
