Player Outlook
The former second-round draft pick will compete for a roster spot with the Steelers this preseason. It's hard to believe Miller has fallen so far after such a promising start to his career (seven touchdowns as a rookie), but injuries and a lack of opportunities have limited him. Until it's clear he'll be an every down receiver, Fantasy managers shouldn't consider him for a roster spot.

  • Steelers' Anthony Miller: Making case for roster spot

    Miller has been making a strong case for a spot on the Steelers' 53-man roster early in training camp, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports. Miller signed a reserve/future contract with the Steelers in January but has made some strong plays over the first few days of camp. The 28-year-old is familiar with the team's system after spending time on Pittsburgh's practice squad in 2021, and he's attempting to carve out a role as a slot receiver and returner ahead of the preseason.

  • Steelers' Anthony Miller: Staying with Steelers

    Miller signed a reserve/future contract with the Steelers on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Miller was traded to the Texans from the Bears over the summer and had five catches for 23 yards and a touchdown in two games before being cut in early October. He spent the rest of 2021 on the Steelers' practice squad and caught one pass for two yards in his lone game action.

  • Anthony Miller: Hits practice squad COVID list

    The Steelers have placed Miller on their practice squad's reserve/COVID-19 list. Via Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Miller's placement on the COVID list is the result of a positive test. As a result, Miller will be required to pass league protocols before returning to practice.

  • Anthony Miller: Back to practice squad

    Miller reverted to the Steelers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Miller played 25 of 60 offensive snaps in his Pittsburgh debut, and he caught his only target for two yards. The 27-year-old will now compete for another opportunity for a game-day elevation.

  • Steelers' Anthony Miller: Minimal impact against Bengals

    Miller secured his lone target for two yards in Sunday's 41-10 loss to the Bengals. Miller was elevated from the Steelers' practice squad for Sunday's matchup since Ray-Ray McCloud (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday. Although the 27-year-old was on the field for 40 percent of Pittsburgh's offensive snaps, he failed to generate much production during his first appearance with the team.

  • Steelers' Anthony Miller: Elevated to active roster

    The Steelers elevated Miller to the active roster Saturday for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. Miller joined the Steelers' practice squad in October, but he will get his first chance on the active roster in Week 12. With Ray-Ray McCloud likely unavailable due to COVID-19 protocols, the 2018 second-round pick could see some snaps in four-wideout sets against the Bengals. However, the majority of the targets will likely be consumed by Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool.

  • Anthony Miller: Ends up in Pittsburgh

    Miller was signed to the Steelers' practice squad Tuesday. After being brought in for a physical Tuesday, Miller was officially added to the practice squad. He was able to reel in 49 catches for 485 yards and two touchdowns last season with the Bears, but only had five receptions for 23 yards and a score with the Texans in 2021 before being released Oct. 6. With JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) likely out for the remainder of the season, Miller could prove to be a valuable addition to Pittsburgh.

  • Anthony Miller: Could join Steelers

    The Steelers plan to bring Miller in for a physical Tuesday, Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network reports. Previous reports suggested that Miller was expected to join the Jaguars' practice squad, but with JuJu Smith-Schuster facing shoulder surgery and an extended absence, there could be a more immediate path to playing time for Miller in Pittsburgh. The team's top two healthy receivers are Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool, with James Washington currently dealing with a groin injury.

  • Anthony Miller: Getting chance with Jags

    Miller is expected to join the Jaguars' practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Miller was cut by the Texans just last week, after having appeared in two games for the team and secured five of 11 targets for 23 yards and a score. The Jaguars may feel motivated to surround rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence with more talent now that playmakers DJ Chark (ankle) and Travis Etienne (foot) are both out of commission, but Miller hasn't exactly proven to be a reliable playmaker in recent years. A 2018 second-round pick, he impressed with seven touchdowns as a rookie but has scored just five times since then.

  • Anthony Miller: Time over in Houston

    The Texans will release Miller on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Houston will move on from Miller just over two months after acquiring him from Chicago along with a 2022 seventh-round pick in exchange for a 2022 fifth-round pick. After dislocating a shoulder in the preseason, Miller was cleared from the injury report prior to Week 1, but he was still inactive for the Texans' first two contests in coach's decisions. He reclaimed starting duties out of the slot in Houston's subsequent two contests, but Miller proved to be an unreliable safety valve for rookie quarterback Davis Mills, hauling in only five of 11 targets for 23 yards and a touchdown between losses to the Panthers and Bills. The Texans' decision to cut Miller likely hints that the team expects top slot receiver Danny Amendola (thigh) to return to action Week 5 versus New England.

  • Texans' Anthony Miller: Production drops off due to QB

    Miller caught one of five targets for three yards in Sunday's 40-0 loss to the Bills. One week after scoring a touchdown in his season debut, Miller was not on the same page with rookie quarterback Davis Mills, who did not have a good game. He threw four interceptions and completed just 11 of 21 attempts. That's not a recipe for wideout productivity. The good news is that Miller is one of the top options in the Texans offense, with 11 targets the last two weeks, behind only Brandin Cooks.

  • Texans' Anthony Miller: Finds end zone in loss

    Miller secured four of six targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' 24-9 loss to the Panthers on Thursday night. Miller's one-yard touchdown reception on a quick slant in the second quarter was the highlight of the contest for the Davis Mills-led Texans offense. The 2018 second-round pick was seeing his first action of the season due to Danny Amendola's (thigh) absence, and Miller finished tied with Jordan Akins for second-most catches on the team for the night. It remains to be seen if Miller, a healthy scratch over the first two games of the season, will be able to garner active status in Week 4 against the Bills.

  • Texans' Anthony Miller: Suiting up Thursday

    Miller is active for Thursday's game against the Panthers. With Danny Amendola (thigh) sidelined, there's an opportunity for Miller to earn snaps in the slot in his first action for the Texans. Miller has been a healthy scratch for the first two games of the season, but he'll also be on the receiving end of passes from third-round rookie Davis Mills, so it remains to be seen what kind of chemistry the two may have.

  • Texans' Anthony Miller: Could have opportunity Thursday

    Miller could see opportunities on offense in his team debut against the Panthers on Thursday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports. Miller was listed as a healthy scratch during Houston's first two games of the 2021 season, but the fact that he dealt with a dislocated shoulder during the preseason may have played a part in those decisions. Now, with Danny Amendola (thigh) ruled out and Nico Collins (shoulder) on IR, there could be an opportunity for Miller to immediately slot into a significant offensive role behind Brandin Cooks and Chris Conley. With Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) also now on IR, whatever targets Miller does see will come at the hands of rookie third-round pick Davis Mills.

  • Texans' Anthony Miller: Will make team debut Thursday

    Miller will be active for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports. Miller was inactive for the Texans' first two games of the season, but a dislocated shoulder suffered in Houston's preseason opener may have factored into him being scratched. Regardless, he is apparently healthy now, and he'll have the opportunity to stake his claim to a regular lineup spot with rookie wideout Nico Collins (shoulder) already ruled out for Week 3 and veteran slot man Danny Amendola (hamstring) considered unlikely to play. Miller is the top candidate to replace Amendola in the slot, and if he can quickly demonstrate a rapport with rookie signal-caller Davis Mills, he could remain ahead of Amendola in the pecking order heading into Week 4.

  • Texans' Anthony Miller: Another healthy scratch

    Miller is a healthy scratch for the second consecutive week Sunday at Cleveland. It appears that Miller's absence is once again not injury-related, with the former second-round pick simply finding himself too low on the depth chart to make the active roster. Look for Brandin Cooks, Nico Collins, Chris Conley and Danny Amendola to be the four primary wideouts used, with a fair share of two-TE sets as well.

  • Texans' Anthony Miller: Not expected to play Sunday

    Miller is expected to be inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Wilson reiterated that Miller's shoulder, which he dislocated in the first preseason game against Green Bay, is fine, and the 26-year-old wideout will simply be a healthy scratch. Brandin Cooks, Chris Conley, Danny Amendola and Nico Collins will operate as the top wideouts for Tyrod Taylor on Sunday.

  • Texans' Anthony Miller: Expected to return for Week 2

    Miller (coach's decision) is expected to return for Sunday's Week 2 matchup against the Browns, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Although Miller suffered a dislocated shoulder in the Texans' preseason opener, he wasn't on the team's injury report ahead of the team's Week 1 matchup, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. However, Miller still was held out during the win over the Jaguars. Coach David Culley said Monday that Miller likely could have suited up Week 1, but the team wanted to preserve his long-term health. Assuming he's active against Cleveland, the 26-year-old will attempt to carve out a role with his new team.

  • Texans' Anthony Miller: Inactive Sunday

    Miller is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Miller wasn't listed on the Texans' final Week 1 injury report, but he's coming back from a shoulder injury and will sit this one out. In his absence, Brandin Cooks, Chris Conley, Nico Collins and Danny Amendola are line to handle the team's WR duties Sunday.
