Veteran WR Brandon Marshall is signing a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, per source.

Related players: TreQuan Smith, Cameron Meredith

Fantasy Impact:

The move comes after the Saints signed, and then lost, WR Dez Bryant last week. As we said when the team signed Bryant, Cameron Meredith may take a bit of a hit in fantasy value, but other roles, like that of TreQuan Smith as a deep threat, should remain.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Cameron Meredith enjoyed a breakout year with a team-high 888 yards in 2016 before losing all of last season due to a torn ACL. Even though the Bears are expected to be improved offensively this season, Meredith sees a major situational bump moving from Chicago to New Orleans. With the Saints, not only does he have future Hall of Famer Drew Brees throwing to him, but he should thrive playing in three-wide sets with Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn. With Ginn being 33, there were reports this offseason that Meredith will emerge as the Saints' No. 2 receiver. Assuming he's healthy (he's participating in training camp), Meredith has sleeper potential this season.

Fantasy Downside

As previously mentioned, Meredith suffered a lost season in 2017 because of a torn ACL. If he suffers any setback, he could lose meaningful snaps to Ginn or even Brandon Coleman. He's also learning a new offense and as long as Thomas is healthy himself, Meredith will be relegated to a No. 2 role.

2018 Bottom Line

Meredith is currently our No. 43 ranked WR heading into the season and currently has an ADP of 14.07 in 12-team leagues and 17.03 in 10-team leagues. Assuming he's healthy, Meredith has the upside of a WR3 but at a WR4 price. He's worth a late-round flier based on his situation but continue to monitor his health throughout the preseason.
