Bears chairman George McCaskey isn't sure if Miller will be on the team in 2021, Patrick Finley of The Chicago Sun-Times reports. Miller had a frustrating end to a disappointing season, getting ejected from the wild-card loss to New Orleans after he punched Saints defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson. McKaskey revealed that the team had a meeting to discuss Gardner-Johnson before the game, warning players not to respond to his antics the way fellow wideout Javon Wims did during the Week 8 matchup with New Orleans. Regardless, Miller ended up making the same mistake and was ejected in the third quarter of Chicago's season-ending loss. The 2018 second-round pick averaged just 3.1 catches for 30.3 yards per game during the regular season, and he didn't score a touchdown after Week 3. Miller has one year remaining on his rookie contract, but it sounds like the Bears might consider a trade or perhaps even an outright release.
Miller has been ejected from Sunday's wild-card game against the Saints in the third quarter, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports. Miller was ejected as a result of shoving/punching Saints safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson. He had two catches (three targets) for 22 yards and one carry for two yards before leaving the field. The 2018 second-round pick had a chance to handle an increased role on offense with impressive rookie Darnell Mooney (ankle) sidelined, but instead Javon Wims will close out Sunday's game as the clear No. 2 option behind Allen Robinson.
Miller caught two passes for 13 yards in Chicago's 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday. After showing some signs of fantasy relevance in the middle portion of the season, Miller failed to reach 17 yards in any of the last four games, and he ended the season with 49 receptions for 485 yards and two touchdowns. After the Bears finish their playoff run, he'll enter the last year of his rookie deal, but he'll need to show significant improvement before being considered a reliable fantasy factor.
Miller caught two passes for 10 yards in Chicago's 41-17 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday. Miller was targeted just three times, and he failed to reach 17 yards for the third straight game. His lack of production over the last five games makes him a difficult player to trust in Week 17 against the Packers.
Miller caught one pass for 13 yards in Chicago's 33-27 victory over the Vikings on Sunday. Even though the Bears threw the football just 21 times in a game they led throughout, Miller was targeted just a single time, leading to his worst yardage total in eight games. He's been held to fewer than 30 yards in four of the last five games, making him a risky fantasy option in Week 16 despite a fantastic matchup against the Jaguars.
