Miller had a pretty ho-hum rookie year. He was No. 3 much of the season and didn't get a lot of weekly chances. He had more than 50 yards just once all season. The positive for Miller was his knack for finding the end zone. He had seven touchdowns on just 33 receptions. He made some big plays with his chances. Miller could move up the depth chart this year and start for the Bears. Miller can be a dynamic player. He is great after the catch and also does well in the deep ball. He lacks a little size, though, and will drop some passes.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Miller can improve on last season. He probably isn't a huge fantasy factor but could help as a reserve, getting some spot starts along the way. Expect around 50 receptions for 600 yards and six or so scores.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller enjoyed a solid, yet incomplete, rookie season with 33 receptions for 423 yards and seven touchdowns. It was a mixed bag at times for Miller but that can be expected for a rookie wide receiver. In many ways it was a tale of two halves, catching only 14 passes for 161 yards with three touchdowns in his first eight games while struggling to find chemistry with quarterback Mitch Trubisky. The second half of the season proved to be far more fruitful. Miller totaled 19 receptions for 262 yards with four touchdowns in his final five games. Miller really showed a nose for the end zone but his progress mid-season was stifled by a separated shoulder that he re-injured several times during the season. Miller underwent offseason shoulder surgery and is expected to be full-go by the time preseason begins. The second-year receiver has plenty of talent, grit and could easily take a leap forward this season. But fantasy owners need to be cognizant that the Bears offense relies on variety and does not necessarily feature the wide receiving position in the passing game. Miller will struggle to rise above being a WR3 in 2019 and will be a touchdown-dependent fantasy option. As of now, expect Miller to hit the waiver wire heading into 2019 with the potential of becoming a matchup-based FLEX starter by season's end.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller caught five passes for 64 yards in the Bears 36-25 loss to the Saints in Week 7. Miller saw nine targets in the game but rarely generated any kind of production until the final two garbage-time drives. The second-year receiver also lost a costly fumble in the first half in a game that was dominated by the Saints. Miller now has back-to-back games of 50-plus receiving yards but the Bears offense is a mess right now. Miller lacks fantasy appeal heading into Week 8.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller will come off the team's bye week looking to kick-start his season in Week 7 against the Saints. Miller caught four passes for 52 yards in Week 5, his best offensive performance of the season. The second-year receiver was expected to make a huge jump this season after catching seven touchdowns in 2018. But Miller has taken two steps backwards through the first five games, barely being involved in the offense and committing undisciplined penalties. The Bears will face a Saints Defense that is allowing the 10th most fantasy points to opposing pass-catchers. But until Miller strings several strong games together, Miller has very little fantasy value right now.
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller had four catches for 52 yards on seven targets in Week 5 against the Oakland Raiders in London.
Fantasy Spin: This was Miller's best showing of the season, but that's not saying much. He has eight catches for 80 yards on 15 targets. Maybe he'll get going after the team's bye in Week 6.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller caught four passes for 52 yards in the Bears 24-21 loss to the Raiders in London. Miller shook off an early drop to have his most active game of the season. The frustration certainly seems to be mounting, however, as the second-year receiver continues to commit undisciplined penalties. Miller was flagged for an unsportsmanlike penalty after a Allen Robinson receiving touchdown, a penalty that was completely unnecessary. Miller has little fantasy value as the Bears head into their bye week.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller will not be on the fantasy radar in Week 5 despite a favorable matchup against the Raiders. It has been a disastrous start to the second-year receiver's season as Miller has only four catches for 28 yards through the first four games. He will go up against a Raiders Defense that is allowing the seventh most fantasy points to opposing receivers but the Bears will have backup Chase Daniel under center. Miller's slow start should keep him on the waiver wire until he shows more signs of life.
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller caught two passes for 11 yards against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Sept. 29.
Fantasy Spin: Miller had some buzz coming into the season, but the fact that he was clearly behind Javon Wims (4-56-0) on a day that the Bears played without Taylor Gabriel should bring a sobering realization that Miller just isn't part of the gameplan. Feel free to move on, but do continue to monitor him just in case something changes.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller has four receptions through four games this season. He caught two of his three targets in the 16-6 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4. Miller has been a forgotten man in the Bears offense this season. It's getting to the point where he belongs on the waiver wire in almost all formats. Miller only has value in the deepest leagues possibly, because he's been a ghost out there. He'll get a favorable matchup in Week 5 versus the struggling Oakland Raiders secondary. He belongs on the bench in basically all formats, unless you're forced to use him.
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller could see more offensive snaps in Week 4's game against the Minnesota Vikings, as a result of WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) being ruled out, according to head coach Matt Nagy.
Fantasy Spin: Miller has been a non-factor this season, with just two receptions for 17 yards through his first three games. He is not worth starting in any fantasy format at this point and can be cut if you need the roster space.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller has only two catches for 17 yards through the first three games heading into Week 4. Miller's slow start can be attributed to suffering an ankle injury late in training camp but he also has been sloppy when given the chance during games. False starts, poorly run routes and not being on the same page with quarterback Mitch Trubisky all have also added to the second-year player's stunted development. Miller has a sneaky favorable matchup this week against a Vikings Defense that already has allowed eight or more fantasy points to six opposing receivers this season. With teammate Taylor Gabriel in concussion protocol, Miller has a chance to step up in Week 4. But fantasy owners shouldn't trust Miller until he shows he can produce on the field.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller caught only one pass for 15 yards in the team's 31-15 win over the Redskins in Washington. Miller was targeted only three times and was, once again, left out of the mix in the passing game. The second-year player was flagged for an ill-timed false start in the first quarter and Mitch Trubisky's passes seemed to be just out of reach. Miller is playing catch-up after an ankle injury late in training camp has stunted his role in the offense thus far. When the ball is in his hands, Miller can make big things happen. But until more targets come his way, he lacks any kind of fantasy appeal heading into Week 4.
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller was limited to just one grab for 15 yards on three targets in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.
Fantasy Spin: Miller was such a dynamic football player at Memphis during his college days, but he struggled with injuries early on in his career. All indications are that he is healthy, but he has barely been a part of the offensive plan so far through three games. Fantasy owners can cut him if you need the roster spot.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller will try and get his season going when the team takes on the Redskins in Week 3 for Monday Night Football. The second-year receiver was expected to take a leap this season but has only one reception for two yards to show for it. Miller also appears to be on a limited snap-count, whether for health or the coaching staff is opting to trust other players. Miller was drafted in a handful of leagues but has been completely non-existent. The talented receiver will, however, face a Redskins Defense that has already allowed five touchdown catches to opposing receivers through the first two games.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller once again was not heavily featured in the Bears offensive game plan as the team came from behind to beat the Broncos 16-14. Miller made only one catch, a quick pass, that went for only two yards as his snaps were limited for the second straight game. Miller has been struggling with an ankle injury suffered in training camp and clearly is not up to speed in coach Matt Nagy's eyes. Miller caught seven touchdowns in his rookie season and was widely expected to take a step forward this season. But that progress has completely stalled and fantasy owners may need to move on from Miller until his snap-count rises.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller was held without a catch in the team's Week 1 loss to the Packers. Miller had been dealing with an ankle injury in the latter portions of training camp and clearly is not in rhythm on offense. He saw only one target in Week 1 and played 16 snaps, a paltry number for a player who was poised to take a step forward this season. Miller has plenty of talent but questions remain when it comes to his chemistry on the field with quarterback Mitch Trubisky. The second-year receiver will go up against a Broncos secondary this Sunday that struggled, at times, to stop the Raiders passing offense in Week 1. Until Miller plays more than 16 snaps in a game and records a catch, the receiver needs to ride the fantasy bench.
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller was held without a reception and was targeted just once versus the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 5.
Fantasy Spin: Miller is viewed as one of Chicago's bright young playmakers, but he was nowhere to be seen on Thursday night. Perhaps it was the lingering effects of an ankle injury that bothered him during the preseason. Whatever the reason, remain patient and keep Miller on roster.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller failed to record a catch in the Bears 10-3 loss to the Packers to open the 2019 NFL season. The second-year receiver was targeted only once on a night when the offense couldn't get anything going. Miller has been dealing with an ankle injury suffered during practice two weeks ago but played a multitude of snaps. Miller possesses plenty of talent but the Bears air attack never could take flight. The talented receiver needs to be stashed on the bench until the Bears offense can show signs of life.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller was not listed on the team's injury report and is expected to suit up Week 1 against the Packers Thursday night. Miller has been nursing an ankle injury after landing awkwardly in practice two weeks ago. The fact that he is not listed on the injury report is strong indication that he is ready to roll. The second-year receiver will go up against a Packers Defense that allowed the fourth most fantasy points to opposing receivers last season. Miller has the talent and potential to possibly become a fantasy starter at some point this season. But he should ride the bench out of the gate to gauge how acclimated, or healthy, he is to start the season.
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (ankle) was back at practice - albeit in limited fashion - Monday, Aug. 26.
Fantasy Spin: The Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer reported the injury was serious enough when it happened two weeks ago that Miller could be in for a limited role to start the season. That still may be the case to a degree, but it's a good sign for his ability to contribute early that he felt good enough to get back on the field almost two weeks before the season opener. While Miller may start slow, he could ascend to every-week WR3 in fantasy status before long.
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said that wide receiver Anthony Miller (ankle) returned to practice in a limited role on Monday. Miller's missed time in camp could slow him down out of the gates in the regular season, but he should still have a role in a Chicago offense that is expected to take another step forward. The 24-year-old had 33 catches for 423 yards and seven touchdowns in 15 games his rookie season. While his number of catches and yards should increase, don't expect Miller to match or exceed his touchdown total. He's RotoBaller's No. 47 fantasy wideout and is worth taking in the middle rounds as a WR3/4.
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (ankle) could have a limited role in the offense early in the season as he missed most of organized team activities and minicamp to a shoulder injury and most of the preseason with an ankle injury.
Fantasy Spin: Miller is still someone to target late in drafts for his long-term value, but he has struggled to learn the nuances of the offense and now has missed most of the offseason and preseason. He might be someone to keep an eye on via the waiver wire for the first couple of weeks.
