Saints beat writer Mike Triplett answered a question about the team's WRs.

There’s probably a good chance the Saints will add another veteran. They showed interest in free agent Sidney Rice, and they could always re-sign Robert Meachem, whom they like for both his downfield speed and blocking ability. But those moves would be for depth. They’re certainly not in a panic over the top jobs right now. They’re very comfortable with Marques Colston and Kenny Stills as their two starters.

Fantasy Impact:

The Saints still have plenty of weapons, assuming they sign TE Jimmy Graham. There's also Pierre Thomas out of the backfield. The piece also says the team is comfortable with Nick Toon and Joe Morgan, and with a deep WR draft there's no need to panic.

Saints WR Lance Moore did not practice on Saturday and is less likely to play Monday night.

Fantasy Impact:

Robert Meachem and Kenny Stills could get looks with Moore out. Neither are really good plays in your typical league, though.

Mike Triplett, - [Full Article]

It's not immediately clear what role WR Robert Meachem will play with the Saints now that young backup receivers Kenny Stills and Nick Toon have emerged as players who look ready to make an impact. But it makes perfect sense for the Saints to at least try and recapture the chemistry that existed when Meachem was a part of their offense from 2007-11.

My guess is they won't try to force him into the mix right away -- as long as their top four receivers stay healthy. But the Saints know they can depend on Meachem if they need a replacement at some point. And in the meantime, if he starts to regain his prime form, then maybe he'll force their hand.

Fantasy Impact:

In other words, the roles of Stills and Toon as the team's WR3 and WR4 should be safe for now.

Former Charger WR Robert Meachem on verge of signing with Saints.

Fantasy Impact:

Meachem was a total bust for the Chargers. In fact, his best game came against the Saints in his short time there. It's hard to imagine he'll have fantasy value, but anything is possible with the Saints...

San Diego Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Quite plainly, Chargers WR Robert Meachem looked as if his confidence is still fractured and his game is still missing. He looked lost in Norv Turner's offense, and he looks lost in Ken Whisenhunt's offense.

Meachem says his health is “blessed,” and he did miss just one game last year and has been in every practice this camp.

However, one person familiar with the situation said emphatically that Meachem is “broken down," that his body simply isn’t what it was.

Drew Brees revealed how well fifth-rounder Kenny Stills has filled in for the injured Joe Morgan since Morgan got hurt during Saturday's scrimmage. Stills has been running with the first team and practice and the Saints feel like he has progressed.

Stills is not a tall, speedy receiver like the 6-foot-1 Morgan, but Brees said the rookie is starting to catch on -- pardon the pun.

Fantasy Impact:

Stills ran a 4.38 40-yard dash is only one inch shorter than Morgan, so he's built in the same mold as the Saints' deep threat receivers (Devery Henderson, Robert Meachem, Morgan) before him. Those players were always boom-or-bust plays due to the inconsistency of the deep game.

Danario Alexander tears ACL

ESPN - [Full Article]

The San Diego Chargers have lost wide receiver Danario Alexander potentially for the season with a torn right ACL, a source said.

Alexander, who tore his left ACL three times in college at Missouri, has had a history of knee problem.

Fantasy Impact:

Alexander emerged as a very good fantasy player last season, catching 37 passes for 658 yards and seven touchdowns in 10 games overall. Over that span he posted #6 WR numbers, and this year we had him ranked as a solid WR3. Vincent Brown and Malcom Floyd will both get a bump in value, but even Brown just recently returned to practice. Also, the Bolts are supposed to simplify things this year, running more with Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown, and getting the ball quicker out of QB Philip Rivers' hand. We have Keenan Allen next up on the depth chart followed by Eddie Royal and Robert Meachem, who were both very disappointing last season. At TE, Antonio Gates figures to see a few more targets as well. This is a big blow to Philip Rivers.

Browns OC Norv Turner on what he gleaned from watching tape of QB Brandon Weeden: “I saw a young guy that I think now and I thought then has a real positive upside and when I look at him on tape, I haven’t spent any time with him, but when I look at the tape I see a guy who can be a really good player. I think a lot of playing quarterback has to do with the people you have around you and getting those guys playing at a high level. People may think it’s being unfair to Brandon to say ‘well they’re being cool about it.’ I think it’s being fair to him to say ‘hey we have a young guy that has some talent and we’re going to find out about him.’ We’re going to coach him and do everything we can to make him the best player he can be and let’s see where it goes. He’s going to have an opportunity to go compete, play and grow and I’m excited to be working with him.”

Fantasy Impact:

Keep in mind that Turner was the one raving about WR Robert Meachem and we all know how that turned out.

Chargers WR snap counts vs. TB of a possible 66 plays: Danario Alexander (59), Malcom Floyd (58), Eddie Royal (24), Robert Meachem (8).

Fantasy Impact:

It seems like Meachem has been passed as the WR2 by Alexander as the Bolts were desperately looking for a second option to go with Floyd. Alexander is definitely worth a pickup, especially in deeper leagues.

Robert Meachem & Eddie Royal OUT for Chargers
Thursday, November 1, 2012, 7:16pm

Chargers Inactives
Chris Carr DB
Larry English LB
Ladarius Green TE
Robert Meachem WR
Jonas Mouton LB
Eddie Royal WR
Brandon Taylor S

Fantasy Impact:

With Meachem & Royal both out, Danario Alexander gets the start & Seyi Ajirotutu could see increased playing time after #1 WR Malcom Floyd. Neither Alexander or Ajirotutu are top 50 options. Expect Antonio Gates to get some extra looks. Avoid starting Phil Rivers if possible.
