Instead of being a spoke in a team's passing wheel, Chargers WR Robert Meachem is as close to being the hub as at any point in his career. He is being asked to fill the No. 1 role that was vacated when Pro Bowler Vincent Jackson signed as a free agent with Tampa Bay.

HC Norv Turner: "Meachem can get up the field. He's a deep threat, but he's also a more versatile receiver than I thought he'd be when you looked at tape. He can do a lot more things than he did in New Orleans because they didn't need those things from him because they had other guys. But he's an outstanding route running, he's a good 'feel' receiver and he does have outstanding hands."

Fantasy Impact: 

As our #29 WR, we're relatively high on Meachem. He has a good chance to finish as a fantasy WR2 and should be a solid pick in the middle rounds.
