all Im asking is go look at his targets for the past 3 years and see what he has done with the chances he has had. In the NO offense they spread the ball with alot of mismatch type sets, the reason for sproles success last year. meachem was the 3-5 option on that offense and he was really only getting asked to do mostly one thing. Now he has the chance to expand his game, in an offense that has a better than average qb and other players to worry about.
was he an underacheiver? or just not given the chance to do more?
OK, now we're on civil ground. I appreciate that.
I do watch football, I follow it. I know what's going on.
So I know what you're saying it true: he hasn't received a lot of targets. He's been effective in the role he was asked to play in N.O.
Does he have potential? Sure. Is he talented? Yes.
But we don't know that he can be a #1 WR on his own team because he's never done it. If you want to surmise that he will do it in the future, fine.
He might be a legit fantasy WR3 this year. But I need to see it first. I've seen it with Wayne. He's only 33. He can still get open and he catches anything put in his range. I trust him more than Meacham to put up consistent WR3 numbers. That's just me.
If Meacham blows up for you and outproduces his draft value, congrats. But he'll never be on any of my teams because someone will always reach for his name and his talent and his potential.
Now, would I take him if he dropped to the end of the 9th round and I already had 4-5 WRs? Sure, because that would be fair value. I'm not going to pick him at 83 or 86 because I think I can get better value on another player.
