Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. The rookie averaged 3.7 targets across his first 3 games. He's not a fantasy option but does put a slight dent into the target projections for Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Trey Burton.
Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. The rookie has averaged 3.7 targets per game this season. Expect those to be spread to Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Trey Burton.
Bears WR Anthony Miller dislocated his left shoulder in Sunday's win over the Cardinals, HC Matt Nagy said. Nagy said the team will be "smart" with the rookie. “We leave that up the docs and (head athletic trainer) Andre (Tucker),” Nagy added. “And obviously talking to Anthony just to see and make sure that he’s explaining everything that has happened and they can make their best evaluation possible." With just 8 catches through 3 games, Miller isn't worth holding in most redraft leagues.
Bears WR Anthony Miller injured his left shoulder in the 2nd half of Sunday's game in Arizona. He initially headed back to the locker room but is now back on the sidelines. Miller doesn't have his helmet, though, and looks unlikely to return.
The Bears have rookie WR Anthony Miller "earmarked" to run from the slot this season, according to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson. That points to an immediate role for the 2nd-round rookie, but it also intimates WR Taylor Gabriel and WR Kevin White will compete for the starting outside spot opposite Allen Robinson. An intriguing Bears offense under new HC Matt Nagy and first-time OC Mark Helfrich makes all 3 wideouts worth considering near the end of best-ball drafts. We'll be watching to see how the fight for roles plays out.
The Bears selected Memphis WR Anthony Miller with the 51st overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Few WRs were more productive over the past 2 seasons. Miller racked up 95 catches for 1,434 yards and 14 TDs in 2016, finishing top 10 in the country in all 3 categories. Then he set new career highs across the board last year with 96 catches, 1,462 yards and a nation-high 18 TDs. And he was efficient, ranking 4th among all draft-eligible WRs in Pro Football Focus’ yards per route run. Miller wasn’t able to test at the Combine but earned an 87th percentile SPARQ score at his Pro Day. So you’re probably asking, “why wasn’t this dude a 1st-round pick?” Well, he’s smallish at 5’11 and 201 pounds. He’s already 23 years old. And he suffered a Jones fracture in his right foot in his final college game — an injury that has a tendency to cause long-term problems. That said, a healthy Miller looks capable of winning at all areas of the field and as an outside or slot receiver. He’s a long shot to assume #1 duties in Chicago with Allen Robinson in town. But Miller only needs to beat out Kevin White and Taylor Gabriel for the #2 role in an ascending offense. This is a nice landing spot.
