Idk what happened to this guy but something is really wrong with him on the field. Slow as balls and just can't do anything. He also just had a concussion in the last preseason game.

From SD paper on Aug 10

He was responding to the observation that he got caught giving up on a play — not coming back to the ball on what would end up being Charlie Whitehurst’s first interception. (Meachem was so bad that, when I also take into account how poorly the bulk of the second-team offense played, I owe Whitehurst an apology for even remotely suggesting that he didn’t play well on Thursday.)
“I got lazy at the top,” said Meachem, who earlier in the game had run the wrong route on a Whitehurst incompletion.
Quite plainly, Meachem looked as if his confidence is still fractured and his game is still missing. He looked lost in Norv Turner’s offense, and he looks lost in Ken Whisenhunt’s offense.
Meachem says his health is “blessed,” and he did miss just one game last year and has been a part of every practice this camp.
However, one person familiar with the situation said emphatically that Meachem is “broken down,” that his body simply isn’t what it was.
Meachem was a receiver who did one thing well. He ran fast. That was enough — for a time and as a part of a certain offense in which he could just be another guy.
Now, he’s a receiver who can’t separate, runs poor routes and has undependable hands, and he has no business being on the field.

Why would you want to pick up a WR who has lost his one and only asset: his speed?

Call me crazy, but this dude rears his head like a roach every year in some way.

I grabbed Stills last week, but it was Meachem all day. Is there a small outside chance that with Colston banged up and worthless that Meachum could be a little more steady in the passing game?

Meachem is going to be nothing more than a boom or bust flex as he has been his whole career with the Saints. As soon as Colston comes back he can be dropped in all non deep leagues
