Miller recorded five tackles (three solo) and a sack across 49 defensive reps in Sunday's win over the Raiders. Miller has been on a tear to start the season, leading the league with four sacks through the first two games. He played in 75 percent of the Broncos' defensive snaps. Look for Miller to once again apply pressure Sunday against the Ravens, who have struggled to protect Joe Flacco early on this season.
Miller's former mentor, DeMarcus Ware, was hired by the Broncos on Wednesday as a part-time pass-rushing consultant, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic Denver reports. Two of Miller's three highest sack totals came during the three-year stretch in which he and Ware were teammates. The pressure Ware put on opposing offenses on the opposite side of the field likely contributed partly to Miller's success, so perhaps the elder statesman can impart some more wisdom to the 29-year-old, who registered 10 sacks in 2017. The addition of Ware should also prove beneficial to Miller's new pass-rushing partner at outside linebacker, No. 5 overall pick Bradley Chubb.
Miller had four tackles (three solo), a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 27-11 loss to Washington. Miller had a strong first half to the season with eight sacks, but has only two sacks over the last seven games. The Broncos being blown out on a seemingly regular basis certainly limits passing situations for opposing offenses, but nonetheless Miller will aim for a strong finish against division rival Kansas City in Week 17.
Miller added four solo tackles and one sack Sunday against the Jets. Miller played 48 of 50 defensive snaps, and he's gotten to the quarterback in some fashion in each of the last three contests. Expect him to have a superb Week 15 fantasy performance against the Colts, since QB Jacoby Brissett ranks last in the league in sack percentage (11.2 percent).
Miller brought his season total in the sack department up to 8.5 after recording a half-sack in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. Miller added six tackles (four solo) to go along with his half-sack. His tackle total tied his second highest on the season. The stud outside linebacker was unsurprisingly the second most used player on defense, logging 67 snaps (99.0 percent).
