If you are feeding all of that every day, I think you are way over feeding himI feed every other day. 2 silkies, 4 crickets one and and 3 supers for the next feeding. If you are worried about his no drinking, increase the silk worms and skip the superworms.
If you gut load your crickets for 24 hours before they are feed to your cham it is a lot better for him. lots of leafy greens, collard greens, kale, etc.

Supplements - rep-cal calcium no phos and rep-cal with d3 no phos..rep-cal multivitamin .....6 day with cal, 1 day with d3 and next week same but with out d3 and with muilti

Cal no d3 each feeding, so only 3 times a week, cal with D3 once every week, vit once every other week.

Watering - USUALLY spray cage until he walks up to spray bottle and very very lightly he licks nozzle..2 times a day mist

I would add a dripper that runs most of the day.

I would get him a dripper as recommended above and lower his basking spot to 89 or 90. I keep Luie (my adult male veiled) at 89.

chameleon offered nice juicy prey such as silks or horn will drink considerably less. none the less still spray as usual and as laurie stated providing a dripper is always good.
