Mon, 17 Nov 2014 11:34:05 -0800
New Orleans Saints WRs Robert Meachem and Joe Morgan will likely be asked to play more with WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) out for an extended period. WR Kenny Stills is likely to have a much bigger role in the offense, as well.
Fantasy Tip: Marques Colston and Stills should see the biggest boost in their fantasy football value with Cooks hobbled. Jimmy Graham will also likely be targeted more. Travaris Cadet and Pierre Thomas will be relied on more for passes out of the backfield, too. Meachem and Morgan are weak flex plays at FantasyScore moving forward.
Sun, 16 Nov 2014 08:48:50 -0800

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 14:00:54 -0800

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 20:48:57 -0700

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 15:52:40 -0700

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 10:08:34 -0700

Sat, 22 Feb 2014 10:48:26 -0800
The New Orleans Saints are interested in re-signing impending free-agent WR Robert Meachem this offseason. His return to the team likely will depend on the salary the Saints will offer.
Sat, 08 Feb 2014 07:29:45 -0800
The Dallas Cowboys could have interest in WR Robert Meachem (Saints) if he should get to free agency, in the opinion of Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas.
Tue, 04 Feb 2014 17:50:08 -0800
The New Orleans Saints could re-sign impending free-agent WR Robert Meachem this offseason and give him a similar role to what he had this season.
Fri, 08 Nov 2013 13:19:18 -0800
New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to wait for the inactive list to come out to see if Colston will play. If he is able to play, he should be considered a low-end starting wide receiver or flex option. Robert Meachem and Kenny Stills could get increase in value if Colston misses the game and could be flex options. Meachem likely would be a safer option than Stills for owners.
Sun, 03 Nov 2013 15:34:44 -0800
New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem had four grabs for 93 yards in Week 9 against the New York Jets, and WR Lance Moore chipped in with six catches for 70 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Meachem and Moore were the top wideouts for QB Drew Brees with WR Marques Colston (knee) inactive. Neither is particularly attractive from a fantasy perspective for the long term, but they're worth a look in Week 10 if Colston is sidelined again.
Fri, 01 Nov 2013 21:02:08 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) is uncertain to play in the Week 9 game against the New York Jets. If he cannot go, the team still has good depth at the receiver position with WR Lance Moore healthy, and WR Kenny Stills emerging as a solid threat. WRs Robert Meachem and Nick Toon also provide good depth.
Fantasy Tip: If Colston is inactive, and TE Jimmy Graham (foot) is again limited, bump Moore up to a WR3 or flex play in standard leagues, and a low-end WR2 in points-per-receptions (PPR) fantasy formats. Stills would also be worth a look as a WR3/4 or flex play if Colston is sidelined.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 08:46:46 -0700
The New Orleans Saints have declared WR Andy Tanner, DL Glenn Foster, SS Isa Abdul-Quddus, RB Khiry Robinson, LB Martez Wilson, WR Robert Meachem, OT Terron Armstead inactive for Week 1.
Thu, 05 Sep 2013 09:29:51 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem is happy to be back with the team, where he caught 45 passes for 722 yards and nine touchdowns in 2009. "Just watching him run around, he looks as good as ever," QB Drew Brees said. "I look forward to getting him incorporated back in."
Fantasy Tip: Meachem had pretty solid chemistry with Brees before, so it'll be interesting if the two can regain some of that after lost time. Meachem provides the Saints with a proven No. 3 receiver. The signing will temper the excitement over Kenny Stills, but if he continues to produce like he did in the preseason, Meachem might just provide WR depth.
Thu, 05 Sep 2013 08:49:20 -0700
Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem's one-year deal is worth $715,000.
Tue, 03 Sep 2013 18:02:16 -0700

Sat, 31 Aug 2013 13:17:50 -0700
The San Diego Chargers cut WR Robert Meachem. Meachem costs the team $6.875 in dead money on the salary cap.
Sun, 25 Aug 2013 19:35:03 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem is getting limited reps right now, and head coach Mike McCoy explained Sunday, Aug. 25, that it is by design. "We're going what (we) think is right for the football team. We have a rotation and a certain way we are playing guys," McCoy said. "The coaching staff sits down (and) decides how we're going to play guys. We think we are doing it for a reason and what we think is best. This is the plan we've talked about all week long. (Meachem) worked extremely hard and last night he made the most of his opportunities."
Fantasy Tip: The only real reason Meachem is likely to make the 53-man roster is because he is owed money. He likely needs a few more injuries to open up a more prominent role. Until then, he has next to zero fantasy value.
Sun, 18 Aug 2013 09:00:22 -0700
The San Diego Chargers would have to take on $10 million in dead money if they decided to release WR Robert Meachem this season. Meachem has struggled during training camp and is guaranteed his $5 million base salary in 2013.
Mon, 12 Aug 2013 15:52:31 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) was carted off the field after suffering an apparent right knee injury during practice Monday, Aug. 12. Floyd was receiving treatment on his knee for a few minutes before being carted off.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation because more information should be coming out over the next day or so. If the injury is serious, the fantasy values of Vincent Brown, Keenan Allen, Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal could all increase because they could get bigger roles on offense.
Wed, 07 Aug 2013 09:00:23 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Brown (hamstring) is likely to start opposite WR Malcom Floyd following the season-ending injury to WR Danario Alexander (knee). WRs Keenan Allen, Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal are the other receivers in the mix. Brown is not expected to play in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 8, however, after just returning to practice recently after a strained hamstring sidelined him from practice.
Fri, 26 Jul 2013 11:46:28 -0700
The San Diego Chargers owe WR Robert Meachem plenty of guaranteed money, so that's likely the only reason he makes the 53-man roster. According to people close to the club, they are convinced he will not be a factor in 2013.
Wed, 03 Jul 2013 12:26:44 -0700
The San Diego Chargers are unlikely to trade WR Robert Meachem before the season starts, according to Bill Williamson. Williamson points out Meachem is owed $5 million in guaranteed money and a team would have to be desperate to trade for him.
Tue, 25 Jun 2013 08:57:07 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen worked with the first-team offense on the final day of the team's minicamp WRs Danario Alexander and Eddie Royal dinged up with undisclosed injuries. Allen said he's comfortable with the playbook and the offense's terminology. "He's done a nice job buying into what we're doing," head coach Mike McCoy said. "It's a change for him. We're moving guys around, and the skill-position guys really need to know every position because you never know when Philip is going to check at the line of scrimmage. You have an idea where you're playing, but when it comes to a formation, Philip can audible something whenever he wants. ... You've got to know every position."
Fantasy Tip: It'll be tough for Allen to earn a starting role at a position that's probably the deepest on San Diego's depth chart. Alexander, Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown figure to rotate often, and the Chargers also have Royal and Robert Meachem. Barring an injury or unforeseen change, it's probably best to leave Allen for the waiver wire in redraft leagues.
Thu, 13 Jun 2013 15:31:27 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem is still buried on the depth chart, but this new offense gives him a shot to produce more than he did last year.
Fantasy Tip: That won't take much, if he's given the chance in Ken Whisenhunt's O. Problem is, there are a ton of options at wideout, and it's a very open competition for targets. Danario Alexander and Malcom Floyd are the two best bets for receptions, and Eddie Royal, Vincent Brown, rookie Keenan Allen and Richard Goodman will complicate matters for the secondary options.
Sun, 09 Jun 2013 17:03:19 -0700
San Diego Chargers WRs Keenan Allen, Richard Goodman and Robert Meachem did not rotate as starters during organized team activities (OTAs), but they are very much in the picture and pushing for roster spots behind WRs Danario Alexander, Vincent Brown, Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal.
Thu, 23 May 2013 21:57:54 -0700
If San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem has a strong preseason, the club could see if there's an active trade market for him. His $6.875 million cap number, however, may make that a difficult task.
Fantasy Tip: The inconsistent tease would only be a deep-league flyer unless he winds up in a highly attractive situation.
Sun, 10 Feb 2013 18:11:26 -0800
San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem had just 14 receptions, and he was targeted only 32 times in 2012, but he is guaranteed $5 million in 2013.
Mon, 26 Nov 2012 19:05:53 -0800
San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem did not appear on the stat sheet in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens. "He's in it, but it comes down to what we're using in terms of personnel groups," head coach Norv Turner said Monday, Nov. 26. "We have a comfort level with (WR Malcom Floyd). Malcom plays all the positions. We've tried to get (WR Danario Alexander) going and he's made some plays for us. That's where we're at right now."
Sat, 17 Nov 2012 19:42:50 -0800
San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd has taken over as the team's "Z" receiver. The "Z" typically lines up on the same side as TE Antonio Gates, and Floyd was moved there in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to create mismatches and make opponents pick their poison. The position was previously manned by WR Robert Meachem. "With Antonio and I lining up next to each other, we put a strain on whatever side we're on," Floyd said.
Wed, 14 Nov 2012 16:24:07 -0800
San Diego Chargers WR Danario Alexander (knee) said his left knee, which he's undergone five surgeries on dating back to sophomore year in college, feels just as good as his right knee these days. He has eight catches for 195 yards and a touchdown in his last two games with the Chargers, and he started over WR Robert Meachem in Week 10.
Mon, 12 Nov 2012 18:13:50 -0800
San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem has a $5 million base salary that is fully guaranteed for 2013. The potential of a new coaching staff and personnel staff complicates his future.
Fri, 09 Nov 2012 13:54:08 -0800
San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 9, and is probable for the team's Week 10 game.
Thu, 08 Nov 2012 14:48:28 -0800
San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 8.
Wed, 07 Nov 2012 16:27:58 -0800
San Diego Chargers CB Chris Carr (quadriceps), WR Robert Meachem (hamstring) and WR Eddie Royal (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 7.
Fri, 02 Nov 2012 17:06:30 -0700
San Diego Chargers WR Danario Alexander said he is still learning the team's playbook and working at getting on the same page as QB Philip Rivers. Rivers and Alexander worked together closely the past two weeks to build chemistry. Alexander caught three passes for a team-high 61 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9, which he said is just the beginning. Rivers was impressed with Alexander's performance. "Danario was big and he was great. He had a third down slant way down in there inside the ten, then a couple more end routes, an out route that got us going. He was good, he was comfortable. It's just amazing," Rivers said of his new weapon.
Fantasy Tip: Alexander is worth the look if you're hurting at wide receiver. Robert Meachem has been a huge disappointment thus far for the Chargers, plus he is dealing with an injury, as is WR Eddie Royal. Vincent Brown, who the team hoped would be able to return, appears to still be at least several weeks away from hitting the field if he does at all.
