Cameron Meredith could be in for another big performance when the Chicago Bears face the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football.

The Packers will likely be down four key defensive backs, including Damarious Randall (groin), Quinten Rollins (groin), Sam Shields (concussion), and Chris Banjo (hamstring). That should pave the way for Meredith to put up another big game in what has been a breakout season for him.

Meredith has caught 20 passes for 243 yards and one score over the past two games. He is becoming a featured weapon in Chicago’s pass-heavy offense. Even when the Bears have been up, they are opting to throw the ball more often than not, which makes Meredith and other Bears receivers a viable fantasy play going forward.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Meredith as the 20th-best wide receiver for Week 7. He faces a Green Bay defense allowing the most fantasy points to wide receivers this season.

Start Meredith this week.
