David Patten and his experience will hold onto that No. 2 spot, but Meachem will be able to find his niche in the offense from the slot, much like Devery Henderson did in the past. The only difference between Meachem and Henderson is that Meachem is much more consistent catching the ball. Same speed, same elusivity.
Meachem could be a nice sleeper pick late in a deep draft and someone who likely will emerge in the second half of the season.
I agree, that and Shockey has been added to the offense, and Brees loves to spread the ball around...In a dynasty you can't go wrong with him, in redrafts expect a few big games, and a few games around 30 yds, Patten is a very solid/reliable option, and while Meachem will have his games he's not the primary option in that offense yet...He's definately worth a bye week play or an injury fill in, but he's not in the situation to be relying on him week to week, but Meachem will be more consistent then Henderson as Mikus said which is a big plus.
