Robert Meachem was a first round draft selection for the Saints in 2008 and struggled as a rookie. He played in 14 games and had only 20 targets, but was dynamic as he averaged 24.1 ypr and scored 4 TDs, one coming on his only rushing carry of the season. He remained with the team for four years, but was never a consistent producer. His best season with the team was his second year as he caught a career high 45 passes for a career high 722 yards and scored 9 TDs. He signed a free agent contract with San Diego after the 2011 season and failed miserably there, catching only 14 passes in 15 games. He was cut and returned to the Saints last year, but saw a minimal role with only 16 receptions. He signed a one-year deal with the Saints this April for $920,000, but may be only competing with Nick Toon and Joseph Morgan for a situational role again this season. (May 17)

Saints | Two expected back soon (Mon Jul 28, 06:52 PM) - New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem (back) and OG Ben Grubbs (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, July 28, but head coach Sean Payton said both should return to the field in the next few days.

Our View: Meachem's role with the team will be what it was last time around. He'll be a deep threat to stretch the field, and his fantasy value should be rather low. The highest Meachem ever ranked during his previous time with the Saints was WR22 in the 2009 season when he posted 45 catches for 722 yards and nine touchdowns. He shouldn't get half that (especially the touchdowns) in 2014.

Saints | Two sitting (Mon Jul 28, 09:24 AM) - New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem (back) and WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) are out of practice Monday, July 28.

Our View: Stills and Meachem's absence will help first-round pick Brandin Cooks gets more time with the ones. Let's also watch deep threat Joe Morgan as he attempts to get all the way from a torn ACL suffered in camp last year.

Saints | Robert Meachem not practicing (Sun Jul 27, 09:36 AM) - New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Sunday, July 27.

Our View: Meachem is a seasoned veteran who can get down the field in a hurry. He's battled plenty of injuries during his pro career, and he may see a few scheduled "days off" during his time in camp. This is not uncommon for certain veterans around the league.
