You decide. 

Correction- Meredith = fragile injury prone JAG

its your last bench spot, isn't it better  to have him on your team if you're wrong, than have to fight to get him on waivers?

Of course, I've never debated that. When someone debates dropping Ridley or Allison for this guy, that's when I have a big problem with it. That's when it just gets ridiculous. If you are acting in a sane manner and dropping someone who is clearly inferior then that's great. Scrambling to make room for this guy though is nuts.

This is not just a WR getting a shot at it with an apportunity.  There were Saints homers talking him up during the preseason.  And add in a high octane offense and you got yourself a Will Fuller/Djax in their prime.

Better do it before one of your league mates gets him!

Wait until after the game tonight. That will make your decision a lot easier. I guarantee you that nobody is running right now to claim this dude unless you have some of the guys here in your league. Hopefully Fitz is on your bench and then you just cut him if the results aren't good and add Smith. Fitz has already been added and dropped twice over the past couple of weeks in my league.

You haven't been paying attention then. We've been discussing this guy for months. He's legit.

for guys like Allison and Ridley i'd agree because they have similar upsides. but if we are talking about mediocore guys that are a dime a dozen and easily replaced with someone else on the wire, i'd drop those guys even with no issue.

The hyperbole you use to describe players is funny. Meredith is very talented. It's almost like you have an agenda...

What kind of players are you guys dropping for him? Is he worth a roster spot over guys like Goodwin, Allison, Watkins? Peyton Barber?

It's all relative I guess. Yes Meredith is talented enough to play in the NFL.  But of all NFL receivers, he's pretty mediocre.

That's kinda where my head's at, but it's a rookie keeper league. A little surprised he hasn't been plucked off the wire already truth be told. 

 

Of course, if I cut Fitzy, you watch...he'll finally go off tonight and be back to WR 1 the rest of the way!!!

Cooper is a bum. You should have no problem dropping that potato. I dropped him a few days ago. He was just taking up space.

Peyton Barber, yes. The rest of those guys, no. Sammy is on the fringe though.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues

UPDATE: Ted Ginn has been place on injured reserve on Thursday 10/18. Ginn could return later this season, but he'll have to miss at least eight weeks. He can be safely left to the waiver wire now. In his absence, this creates much larger roles for rookie Tre'Quan Smith (two touchdowns in Week 5) and Cameron Meredith. Smith has more upside but could also be more boom/bust. The New Orleans offense can support them both, although they both face a tough matchup in Baltimore in Week 7. They will both be in the flex picture moving forward.

 
 

ANALYSIS: There are a few small reasons why New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith already warranted a look as opposed to other available Saints pass-catchers. For starters, he had the most recent big game amongst the bunch with a 111-yard outing in Week 5 against the Redskins. It certainly helps that the bulk of his production came on that one big scoring play that saw Drew Brees break the passing record.

The Saints also have Cameron Meredith and two tight ends that may eat into each other in Benjamin Watson and Josh Hill. There's room for the Saints to establish another big play contributor, even if it's a very boom-or-bust option. Owners looking to swing for a home-run or nada should scoop up Tre'Quan. He should be added in most leagues, especially if you are looking for more WR depth or are facing bye-week crunches.

Idk if I'd drop any of those guys outside of barber if you're good at RB. I dropped Cherster Roger's fwiw
