  • Bruce Miller: Released by 49ers
    By RotoWire Staff

    The 49ers have released Miller. Per the Sacramento Bee, Miller's release follows reports that Miller had allegedly been arrested for assault, stemming from an incident in a San Francisco hotel early Monday morning.

  • Miller has been adapting well to his new position of tight end, showing impressive route-running ability, CSN Bay Area reports. Miller was moved from fullback to tight end when Chip Kelly came to town due the new coach not having fullback as a position on his depth chart. He has always been a great playmaker at the fullback position, but never had enough plays drawn up for him to make any sort of fantasy impact. If Miller were to jump up the depth chart and carve out a significant role this preseason, then he could have deep league value at the tight end position after posting a career-high 13.5 YPC as a fullback last season.

  • Miller was informed that he will be a tight end this season, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports. Miller was seen taking snaps at tight end during the 49ers' offseason program. Running backs coach Tom Rathman made it official by telling Miller that he no longer has a spot in the running back room. This move should come as no surprise, as new head coach Chip Kelly rarely uses a fullback in his offensive attack. Miller will have a lot of competition for targets as a tight end, but he did put up a career-high 13.5 YPC in 2015, so there is some potential there if he has a significant role this season.

  • Miller has been mixing in snaps at tight end during the 49ers' offseason program, CSN Bay Area reports. Miller has served as the team's fullback for the past five seasons, but he did see limited snaps at tight end last year. The reason for the potential role change is Chip Kelly's read-option offense, which doesn't utilize a fullback. Miller's versatile skill set and good hands (76 career receptions for 734 yards) should make the transition seamless, and he should be in the mix for snaps during training camp.

  • 49ers' Bruce Miller: Gains 89 yards on three catches
    By RotoWire Staff

    Miller went for a career-high 89 yards on three catches in Sunday's win over Baltimore. Miller went unaccounted for on a couple occasions, and the veteran fullback made the Ravens pay. He has been involved in the passing game in the past, but has been almost invisible before Sunday's outburst. Miller could see more targets going forward given the lack of production from the tight end position this season, but not enough to make him fantasy relevant.
