Anthony Miller Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The Steelers on Saturday placed TE Eric Ebron on IR. He's dealing with a knee injury that's been reported as potentially season-ending, so this isn't a surprising move. It does officially knock him out for at least the next 3 games, though. Pittsburgh also elevated WR Anthony Miller from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Bengals. We'll see whether Miller can claim a significant role.

The Steelers signed WR Anthony Miller to the practice squad. He's expected to join the active roster soon. There's an opening in Pittsburgh's 3-WR sets with JuJu Smith-Schuster out for the season. We'll see how snaps are divvied between Miller, James Washington and Ray-Ray McCloud.

NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports that the Steelers plan to have WR Anthony Miller in for a physical Tuesday. Barring a physical issue, that would obviously indicate Pittsburgh plans to sign the veteran. Miller seems a suitable fill-in for JuJu Smith-Schuster's vacated slot role. We'll see about projecting the group the rest of the way if Miller actually signs.

The Texans are cutting WR Anthony Miller, insider Aaron Wilson reports. It's a surprise considering Miller ranked 2nd on the team with 11 targets over the last 2 weeks. But Houston doesn't seem to be making moves with winning football games in mind right now. WR Brandin Cooks will continue to dominate Texans targets.

Houston waived WR Keke Coutee. It’s a surprising move considering the team’s lack of proven depth — and because of Anthony Miller’s current shoulder dislocation. Look for Coutee to land a new gig shortly.

Texans insider Aaron Wilson hears that WR Anthony Miller "could" be back from his shoulder injury for Week 1 or 2. The MRI on that shoulder revealed a "slight" dislocation but no structural damage. So Miller avoided a serious injury, but he'll miss valuable reps with his new team over the next few weeks. He's a long shot for early-season fantasy value. Keke Coutee is in line to open the season as Houston's slot receiver.

Texans WR Anthony Miller suffered a "slight" dislocation of his right shoulder in Saturday's preseason opener. He's scheduled for an MRI, which should give us a timetable for his return. Miller has twice hurt his left shoulder as a pro and also dealt with a shoulder injury in college -- although we don't know if that was the left or right shoulder. We'll update his status when we know more.

Texans WR Anthony Miller was carted off the field in Saturday’s game against Green Bay. Per team insider Aaron Wilson, Miller “appeared to have injured his right shoulder or arm.” The former Bear has undergone a pair of surgeries on his left shoulder since turning pro. Keke Coutee would figure to handle full-time slot duties if Miller misses substantial time.

Update: Wilson tweeted that Miller has a "slight" dlslocation and will undergo an MRI. We'll let you know when we learn more.

WR Randall Cobb tweeted that he's been traded to the Packers, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that the deal will be done once Green Bay gains cap space to make room. Cobb spent his first 8 seasons with QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, finishing as a top 30 fantasy WR 3 times (2012, 2014 and 2015). He posted a 55-828-3 line and WR42 PPR finish with the Cowboys in 2019. Then in Houston last year, Cobb tallied 38 catches, 441 yards and 3 scores in 10 games. He finished 60th in PPR points per game. But Cobb ranked a respectable 26th in yards per target, 52nd in yards per route run and 50th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade among 99 WRs with 40+ targets. Rodgers clearly had a big say in this move -- and we'd expect him to make sure Cobb is the starting slot receiver this season. That'll leave Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard and rookie Amari Rodgers fighting for the last spot in 3-WR sets. In Houston, meanwhile, Cobb's departure frees up the starting slot job. Consider newly acquired WR Anthony Miller the favorite to win that.

The Bears are trading WR Anthony Miller to the Texans. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it took only a "late-round pick swap" for the deal to happen. We have yet to see more specific details, but that seems an extremely low price for the 4th-year wideout. Miller lands in a situation with opportunity to be as much as the #2 target behind Brandin Cooks. But it's also a low-ceiling spot if Deshaun Watson doesn't return. We remain uninterested in Houston pass-catchers behind Brandin Cooks in fantasy football drafts. We'll see who steps into the #3 WR role in Chicago. Marquise Goodwin drew some spring buzz.

Adam Jahns of The Athletic calls Marquise Goodwin the Bears' #3 WR based on OTAs and minicamps. Goodwin didn't play a single snap last season, but Jahns points out the WR's speed as the deciding factor. Damiere Byrd sits 4th in the projection, with Dazz Newsome and Anthony Miller slotting 5th and 6th, respectively. At bottom, we don’t see a Chicago WR beyond Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney emerging for fantasy.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Bears are "having trade discussions" with other teams about WR Anthony Miller and that the wideout is "likely to be dealt." Miller has caught just 2.9 receptions and 33.3 yards per game over 3 years with Chicago since arriving in Round 2 of the 2018 draft. He averaged a career-low 9.9 yards per catch last season and has seen his average target depth drop each of the past 2 years. We like the talent on Miller, who has flashed at times with the Bears. A move out of Chicago could be good for his fantasy upside both in 2021 and beyond. He'll turn 27 in October.

The Bears have downgraded WR Darnell Mooney (ankle) to OUT for Sunday's game against the Saints. That boosts the fantasy football outlook for WR Anthony Miller.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney missed practice this week due to a personal matter. HC Matt Nagy only said Friday that he "thinks" Mooney will play vs. the Texans this weekend. The rookie shouldn't be in your Week 14 fantasy plans. His absence would free up a few extra targets for WRs Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney was added to the injury report on Friday with a knee. He didn't practice and is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Lions. Mooney was already a shaky fantasy play and is basically off the radar now that he's not at 100%. With WR Allen Robinson also dealing with a knee issue, WR Anthony Miller might be forced into a bigger role on Sunday.

Bears WR Allen Robinson has cleared the concussion protocol and is now expected to play Sunday against the Saints, according to multiple reports. That comes as a big surprise after the Bears listed him as doubtful Friday. Robinson obviously belongs in fantasy lineups in nearly all cases. His return knocks Chicago WRs Anthony Miller and Darnell Mooney back down the rankings, though it's still a decent spot for Mooney if you're looking for an option in low WR4 range.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Saints this weekend. That'd leave Darnell Mooney and Anthony Miller as Chicago's top 2 WRs. We've removed Robinson from the Week 8 WR Rankings and bumped up Mooney and Miller

Bears WR Allen Robinson has entered the league concussion protocol. There was no report of a concussion coming out of Monday night's game, so symptoms must have arisen since then. That doesn't bode well for his chances of making it back in time to face the Saints this Sunday. If Robinson's out, we'd likely see target boosts for WRs Darnell Mooney and Anthony Miller. It's tough to get excited about anyone in that offense as a fantasy option right now, though.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (shoulder) is active for tonight's game against the Bucs. He's run more routes and out-targeted WR Anthony Miller over the past 3 weeks. Still, Mooney is really only in play for DFS showdown contests.
