Chargers | Robert Meachem signs

The San Diego Chargers agreed to a four-year deal with free-agent WR Robert Meachem (Saints) Tuesday, March 13. The deal is worth $25.9 million, with $14 million fully guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Meachem will be asked to replace Vincent Jackson as a the team's deep threat, but you can't expect him to be a true No. 1. The Chargers spread the ball around so much that Meachem's reception total should be low (after all, Jackson never caught more than 68 passes in a single season with the Chargers). The offense may return to more of a ground-control emphasis, with Antonio Gates being the featured target in the passing game. Meachem can be considered a high-upside No. 4 or a slightly risky third fantasy receiver because of his issues with drops.
