Cameron Meredith officially diagnosed with ACL tear

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Chicago Bears wide receiver Cameron Meredith (knee) is officially diagnosed with a torn ACL as well as "other damage."

Fantasy Impact

As a result of Meredith's severe knee injury, he will miss the 2017 season in its entirety. With Meredith sidelined, Chicago's WR depth chart becomes a bit more uncertain. Currently, Kevin White is slated as the Bears' WR1 with Kendall Wright and Deonte Thompson listed at the No. 2 and 3 spots. However, with veterans Victor Cruz and Markus Wheaton behind them, Chicago has one of the most volatile WR depth charts in fantasy football as anyone could ultimately emerge in Week 1. Bears' wideouts not named White will likely go undrafted.

Cameron Meredith believed to have torn ACL

After suffering a gruesome left knee injury during the Bears third preseason game, Pam Oliver reported on the FOX broadcast that the team believes Cameron Meredith has a torn ACL.

Fantasy Impact

This would confirm initial fears based on how the injury looked. Kevin White will be without a doubt, the top wideout for the team. Kendall Wright will likely see a big boost as he should step in as the WR2 for the team.

Cameron Meredith carted off the field with knee injury

Cameron Meredith went down with an ugly left knee injury during the second quarter of the Bears' third preseason game. He was tackled high and low and his knee hyperextended inwards. An air cast was placed on his leg and was carted off the field.

Fantasy Impact

There was a lot of hope for Meredith heading into the season after a strong 2016 campaign. The injury looked pretty bad and it wouldn't be a surprise if it was one of the season-ending variety. Kendall Wright would get a bump in rankings if Meredith were to miss time.

Cameron Meredith held without a catch

Receiver Cameron Meredith did not come down with a catch on two targets in Thursday's preseason opener.

Fantasy Impact

Meredith had a great 2016 season and is hoping to continue his production this year. He is being drafted in fantasy leagues in hopes he turns out to be the Bears top receiver, but there are many options to go around, so draft carefully.

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.
