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.
Bears WR Anthony Miller will undergo surgery on his left shoulder and is expected to be sidelined until training camp, GM Ryan Pace said. That's the same shoulder that Miller had surgery on last January. He then missed spring workouts, which might help explain why he got off to such a slow start in 2019. We'll keep an eye on his rehab this go-around.
Bears WR Anthony Miller (ankle) returned to practice on Monday and said afterward that he'll be 100% for Week 1. The Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer suggested last week that Miller could be limited early on this season, so we'll be keeping a close eye on his practice participation. A healthy Miller should emerge as Chicago's #2 WR this year.
The Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer believes WR Anthony Miller (ankle) could be limited early on this season. The 2nd-year wideout has been sidelined for almost 2 weeks now with his sprained ankle. And he spent most of the offseason rehabbing from January shoulder surgery. When healthy, Miller remains a good bet to be Chicago's #2 WR. But the durability problems make him just a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.
HC Matt Nagy said Sunday that WR Anthony Miller sprained his right ankle in Saturday's practice, the team announced. Nagy said he doesn't expect the injury to challenge Miller's Week 1 availability. We'll see how soon the 2nd-year wideout returns to the field.
Bears WR Anthony Miller left practice Saturday with an apparent injury to his right ankle or foot, according to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson. Miller reportedly landed awkwardly after a jump ball in a 1-on-1 drill. We'll keep an eye out for a specific diagnosis. If you're drafting today, perhaps wait an extra round on Miller. He's going late enough to be relatively low-risk either way, though.
