Robert Meachem WR NO 3 months ago

Meachem finished the year with seven receptions for 114 yards in 11 games.

Although the Saints adore Meachem's skills as a blocker, he was a non-factor in the passing game, losing playing time to the Saints' young receiving corps. As an unrestricted free agent, 2014 was likely his last season in New Orleans.

Meachem may be active Monday night against the Bears for the first time since Oct. 30, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Meachem missed three games with a balky ankle, then sat out the last two weeks as a gameday inactive. However, following Joe Morgan's release on Tuesday, there is likely a spot open for another receiver to be active. Meachem has had periods of fantasy usefulness in the past, but he has a long way to go before reaching relevance again.

Meachem has been dealing with an ankle injury recently, but he was listed as probable for Sunday's game, making it appears that he's simply a healthy scratch. Nick Toon could see a few extra snaps.

Meachem (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

Meachem's ankle injury appears to be in the rearview mirror by now, but it's still difficult to see him earning a reliable target count in any given week.

Meachem (ankle) is inactive for Monday's game against the Ravens, the Saints' official site reports.

With five catches for 85 yards in eight games to date, Meachem has yet to make a fantasy splash, though it's possible he could see some added looks once he's healthy, with Brandin Cooks out for the season.

Meachem (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game.

He was limited in practice all week, and may be close to a game-time decision. With Brandin Cooks out for the season, Meachem could figure into the Saints' passing attack if he is able to take the field against the Ravens.

Meachem (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, the Saints' official site reports.

Sidelined the last two games due to an ankle injury, Meachem is trending in the right direction for active status Monday versus the Ravens. While he's rarely factored into the passing attack this season -- five catches (on 17 targets) for 85 yards across eight games -- he could receive more looks following Brandin Cooks' broken thumb, which resulted in his placement on IR.

Meachem (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Bengals, the Saints' official site reports.

Meachem's absence should push additional snaps in the direction of Kenny Stills, who is far more likely to take advantage of the increased usage.

Meachem (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against Cincinnati.

Meachem didn't practice all week, making it seem as if he's on the pessimistic side of questionable. He has played on just under 30 percent of New Orleans' snaps this year, so if he's absent it could result in a noticeable boost in Kenny Stills' play count.

Meachem (ankle) didn't take part in practice Wednesday.

Since Meachem landed on the injury report last Thursday, he's failed to practice, resulting in his first DNP of the season this past Sunday. No matter, Drew Brees' spread-the-wealth philosophy has resulted in Meachem's barren line, which includes five receptions (on 17 targets) for 85 yards through eight games.
