Shark Bites

The Bears are “optimistic” that WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) and TE Trey Burton (hernia) will be ready for the start of training camp, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. Both players have missed offseason workouts while working back from surgeries. We’ll watch their participation early in camp

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.

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.

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.
