Robert Meachem was limited in practice Tuesday for the San Diego Chargers, according to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Meachem is dealing with a hamstring injury he may have suffered last week against the Cleveland Browns.
There is no word yet on Meachem's playing status for Thursday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. On the season, Meachem has 12 receptions for 189 yards and two touchdowns.
Fantasy Impact: Meachem has been a big disappointment in San Diego from a fantasy perspective, so if you're in a standard fantasy league chances are you have already moved on from the wide receiver. He has been held without a catch in three games this season, and has gone over 50 yards just once.
Meachem, functioning as the Chargers' deep threat, can still put up big numbers if circumstances are right (see his two-touchdown performance in Week 5). Unfortunately, those performances are impossible to predict. Save yourself the aggravation and find someone else to plug into your starting lineup.
