Miller caught six passes for 54 yards in the Bears' 17-7 loss to the Rams on Sunday.
With Allen Robinson locked down by Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, Miller posted a season-high reception total, though he was unable to generate much yardage after the catch. He's a difficult player to trust in fantasy, as he has four games with at least 52 yards, but he's had 15 or fewer yards in his other six contests. In addition, he's yet to find the end zone or reach 70 yards in a game.
Miller caught one pass for seven yards in the Bears' 20-13 win over the Lions on Sunday.
After having posted at least 52 yards in three straight games, Miller now has caught just a single pass for seven yards on three targets over his last two games. On the season, he's been held to 15 or fewer yards in six of nine games, making him a risky fantasy option with a low scoring floor.
Miller failed to catch his lone target in the Bears' 22-14 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.
Despite facing one of the softest pass defenses in the league, Mitchell Trubisky only threw for 125 yards, and Miller suffered from his quarterback throwing just 21 passes. Although he's posted at least 52 yards in three of his last four games, he's only had two games in which he's been targeted more than three times, giving him the potential for significant downside. Until he begins to show more consistency, he'll be a very risky lineup option.
Miller caught three passes for 67 yards in the Bears' 17-16 loss to the Chargers on Sunday.
The good news was that Miller led the Bears in receiving yardage, but unfortunately, he logged just three targets. When counted upon, he came up with a big reception on a fourth down to move the chains while also adding a 35-yard grab to help boost his yardage total. With at least 52 yards in each of his last three games, he's now a player who can be considered as a weekly fantasy option, though in a low-volume passing attack, he has clear downside as well.
Miller caught five passes for 64 yards in the Bears' 36-25 loss to the Saints on Sunday.
Miller was a complete non-factor for the majority of this game: Mitchell Trubisky was under heavy pressure, and Chicago was unable to sustain any offensive drives. However, once the game was out of hand in the last five minutes, he was able to compile some late production to salvage his fantasy day. He's now been targeted at least seven times in each of his last two contests, and he may be starting to work his way into fantasy relevance.
Miller caught four passes for 52 yards in Chicago's 24-21 loss to Oakland on Sunday.
After being targeted eight times over the past four games, Miller almost matched that total with seven targets, which led to him surpass 15 yards for the first time this season. With the Bears having their bye next week, they could begin to make Miller a more consistent part of their offense, but until they do, it'll be difficult to trust him in weekly fantasy lineups.
Miller caught two passes for 11 yards in the Bears' 16-6 win over the Vikings on Sunday.
Miller has been targeted just eight times on the season, posting four receptions for 28 yards, and he won't be a fantasy factor unless his role changes significantly.
Miller caught one pass for 15 yards in the Bears' 31-15 victory over Washington on Monday.
The only good news is that Miller's three targets represented one more than he had seen over his previous two games. Although he has little fantasy value right now, should Taylor Gabriel (head) be forced to miss time, Miller could see an uptick in targets, which would immediately elevate his floor.
Miller caught one pass for two yards in the Bears' 16-14 victory over the Broncos on Sunday.
For the second week in a row, Miller saw very little game action and provided his fantasy owners with no help. Until he returns to a full-time role in the offense, he'll be nearly impossible to trust in fantasy lineups.
Miller failed to come up with his only target in the Bears' 10-3 loss to the Packers on Thursday.
The expectations the second-year wideout came into the season with landed with a resounding thud Thursday, as he was the only one of the top four receivers that failed to register at least one catch. Naturally, Miller projects to be a much more significant part of the offense in coming weeks, and his next opportunity to break the 2019 ice will come against the Broncos in Week 2 a week from Sunday.
Miller (ankle) isn't listed on Monday's injury report.
After spraining his right ankle during an Aug. 11 practice, Miller was given a recovery timetable of a couple weeks. On Aug. 27, he relayed that he didn't feel any discomfort in the region at that session, and the feeling has extended into Week 1 preparations. Look for Miller to serve as one of the top pass catchers for Mitchell Trubisky to kick off the campaign.
Miller (ankle) said he didn't feel any pain during Monday's practice, Colleen Kane of The Chicago Tribune reports.
Miller returned to practice Monday in a limited capacity, making his first appearance since Aug. 10. The ankle sprain wiped out his preseason, but he still has time to move toward full participation before next Thursday's season opener against the Packers. Between the recent ankle injury and offseason shoulder surgery, Miller has missed out on valuable practice reps ahead of his second pro season, but he believes his improved knowledge of the offensive scheme will allow him to "play faster."
Miller (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Miller, who practiced in a limited fashion in his return to the field Monday, is expected to be available for the Bears' regular-season opener, Sept. 5 against the Packers. The 2018 second-rounder is listed on the Bears' posted depth as a starting receiver along with Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel. Assuming his health, Miller looks poised to eclipse his 33-423-7 rookie stat line.
Coach Matt Nagy suggested Miller's absence due to an ankle injury could impact his chemistry with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, Dan Wiederer of The Chicago Tribune reports. "The biggest challenge is the timing with the quarterback," Nagy said Wednesday. "That's the No. 1 challenge."
Miller's role in the slot isn't in any danger, but the accumulation of missed practice time could impact his involvement early in the season. He was held out of offseason practices while recovering from shoulder surgery, and now has been out for almost two weeks with the ankle sprain. Miller still has time to get ready for Week 1, though it doesn't help that the Bears play in the NFL's Thursday opener against Green Bay on Sept. 5.
Miller (ankle) missed another practice Tuesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miller hurt his ankle during practice Aug. 10 and now seems in danger of missing the entire preseason. His role as Chicago's primary slot receiver isn't in question, so his only real concern is to get healthy for Week 1 against the Packers on Sept. 5. Miller was efficient with his opportunities as a rookie in 2018, producing 423 yards and seven touchdowns on 54 targets (7.8 YPT) despite dislocating his left shoulder five or six times throughout the year. He returned from offseason shoulder surgery to practice without any limitations at the start of training camp.
Miller sprained his ankle at practice Saturday.
Miller likely will miss a couple weeks, but Bears coach Matt Nagy doesn't believe the issue will jeopardize the wide receiver's availability for Week 1. Miller's absence should free up extra reps with the starters for Taylor Gabriel and Cordarrelle Patterson.
Miller injured his right foot at Saturday's practice, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miller went down during individual drills, was looked at by a member of the Bears' training staff, and promptly walked to the locker room. After the session, coach Matt Nagy relayed that he believed Miller "rolled" the foot in question but didn't have any other update on the issue. Miller is listed as a starting wide receiver on the team's first unofficial depth chart of training camp alongside Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel, something only a serious injury likely would impact.
Miller is listed as one of three starting wide receivers on the Bears' first unofficial depth chart of training camp.
Miller's one year of experience in coach Matt Nagy's offense gives him a leg up on the competition, which includes Javon Wims and Marvin Hall. Working alongside Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel, Miller will attempt to improve upon rookie marks of 12.8 yards per catch, 7.8 yards per target and a 61.1 percent catch rate on 54 targets. Assuming the shoulder injury that plagued him in 2018 is in the rear-view mirror, Miller will have a great opportunity to do just that as his rapport with Mitchell Trubisky continues to improve.
Miller has been practicing fully at training camp following offseason shoulder surgery, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miller's talent isn't in question; coach Matt Nagy believes the receiver has Pro Bowl-potential, and the wideout will now focus on paying more attention to detail as he looks to reach his ceiling as a player. Now that he's healthy, Miller is working to make adjustments in his understanding of the offense, most notably in determining where other receivers will be on pass routes so he can find space for himself. While working on this aspect of the offense, Miller is trying to gain a better understanding of coverages while getting in better sync with Mitch Trubisky. The continued development of the entire offense is something that will ultimately impact Miller's fantasy value. In most early drafts, Miller is typically being selected after 50 receivers have already gone off the board.
Miller (shoulder) participated in practice Friday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The session wasn't open to the media, though, so it's unclear how much Miller was able to handle. On the heels of a rookie season in which he dislocated his left shoulder five or six times, he'll be looking to increase his usage in the Bears offense, when healthy. In 2018, Miller took on 53.6 percent of the offensive snaps, which he used to record 7.8 YPT and seven touchdowns on 54 targets.
