The National Football Post's Dan Pompei is issuing a 'fantasy alert' on Robert Meachem after a recent discussion with Chargers coach Norv Turner.
Turner says he wouldn't be surprised to see Meachem between 60 and 70 catches with 1,000 receiving yards. "Look at the history of the offense," Turner said. "Meachem is capable of giving us that stat production if he can play a complete season." As for why Meachem hasn't put up big numbers in his career so far, Turner pointed out the depth of wide receiver in New Orleans. He went on to mention that Meachem "hasn't been the focal point", which gives the impression that he'll now have that opportunity in San Diego. A 65-catch, 1,000 yard season with a half dozen touchdowns would put Meachem in WR2 territory, making him a player to target.
