Miller caught two passes on seven targets for 28 yards in Chicago's 19-13 loss to Minnesota on Monday.
Although Miller was second on the team in targets, Nick Foles was under heavy pressure throughout the game, and the passing attack was barely able to crack 100 yards. However, Miller was targeted on a deep route late in the fourth quarter that could've resulted in a score, but the ball was slightly overthrown. Although he hasn't been a strong performer this season, he's been targeted 26 times over the last three games, and his volume makes him a player who could emerge as a solid flex option down the stretch.
Miller caught five passes for 59 yards in the Bears' 24-17 loss to the Titans on Sunday.
With the Bears falling behind by double digits in the first half, Nick Foles threw the ball a season-high 52 times, which resulted in Miller seeing eight targets on his way to his second straight productive performance, though he lost a fumble as the team was trying to mount a late comeback. He's started to come on over the last two weeks after averaging fewer than 20 yards over the previous six games, and he may be worth adding to fantasy rosters for depth purposes.
Miller (toe) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Tennessee, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Miller never quite progressed to full participation but did manage limited practices both Thursday and Friday. He had season highs for catches (eight) and targets (11) last week against the Saints, after seeing six or fewer targets in each of Chicago's first seven games.
Miller (toe) was listed as limited on Thursday's practice estimate.
The Bears didn't practice Thursday, so Miller technically hasn't got on the field this week, but he'll have one more chance to prove his health before the weekend. Coming off a season-best eight catches and 11 targets (for 73 yards) this past Sunday against the Saints, he'll look to keep it up Week 9 against a Tennessee defense that has given up the second-most receptions (124) to wide receivers this season. That is, assuming Miller is active.
Miller was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to a toe injury.
Miller is making his first appearance on the injury report this season on the heels of an eight-catch, 73-yard performance in last week's loss to the Saints. His status will be one to watch as the week proceeds, and Riley Ridley would be the next man up to join Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney in three-receiver sets if Miller can't go Sunday in Tennessee.
Miller caught eight passes for 73 yards in the Bears' 26-23 overtime loss to the Saints on Sunday.
With the Bears trailing throughout the fourth quarter, Miller became a primary target on short passes to keep the Saints' pass rush off of Nick Foles, which led to Miller's highest yardage total since Week 1. Despite his solid stat line, he failed to reach 30 yards in any of his last four games, and he'll need to show some weekly consistency before becoming a reliable fantasy option.
Miller caught three passes on five targets for 20 yards in Chicago's 24-10 loss to the Rams on Monday.
Miller was targeted just once in the first half, but with the Bears trailing throughout the second half, he saw an uptick in volume, including one target in the end zone that was broken up. Over the last four games, he's averaging only 18 yards without scoring a touchdown, and until he turns things around, he won't be a recommended fantasy option.
Miller caught three passes for eight yards in Chicago's 23-16 victory over the Panthers on Sunday.
Although Miller caught each of his three targets, he was unable to generate any yardage after the catch, leading to a disappointing fantasy performance. He's now had three games in which he's failed to reach 20 yards and has not posted more than 41 yards in any contest the season. Unless his role in the offense changes significantly, he'll be very difficult to trust in weekly fantasy lineups.
Miller caught four passes for 28 yards in Chicago's 20-19 victory over the Buccaneers on Thursday.
Miller was targeted solely on short passes and was unable to get much yardage after the catch, though he came up with a huge third-down catch to move the chains in the last two minutes of the game to help lead the Bears to a win. Unless he becomes a bigger part of the offense, he'll be difficult to trust in fantasy lineups, as he's posted just 85 yards over the last four games.
Miller caught three passes for 16 yards in the Bears' 19-11 loss to the Colts on Sunday.
Although the Bears ran a balanced offense in the first half, they quickly found themselves down by double digits on the scoreboard. Nick Foles ended up throwing 46 passes in the game, but only four of them went to Miller. Aside from a 12-yard reception to move the chains on a third down, his other opportunities were near the line of scrimmage, giving him very little opportunity to post solid yardage. Miller has yet to see more than six targets in any game, and he's alternated solid performances with disappointing ones, making him a difficult player to count on each week when setting fantasy lineups.
Miller caught two passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.
Before scoring the touchdown that led the Bears to victory, Miller had appeared to score another touchdown, but replay overturned the play, ruling the pass incomplete. With a pair of games in which he posted at least 41 yards and a touchdown, he's settling in as a flex option, but should he see an increase in snaps and targets, he could quickly see a further increase in fantasy production.
Miller was targeted three times but failed to catch a pass in the Bears' 17-13 victory over the Giants on Sunday.
After playing fewer than half of the snaps in Week 1, Miller continued to spend time on the sidelines, especially when Chicago was using formations with just two wide receivers. Although he was able to put together a solid fantasy performance last week when the team was playing from behind, this week's game script allowed the Bears to play conservatively, giving Miller little chance to be successful. Unless he begins to see an elevated snap count, he'll likely be a volatile fantasy option with a dangerously low floor.
Miller caught four of six targets for 76 yards and a game-winning 27-yard touchdown in Chicago's 27-23 victory over the Lions on Sunday.
Through the first three quarters of the game, Miller was barely heard from, but he caught three passes in the last few minutes of the contest to help lead the Bears to a win. As the clear No. 2 wide receiver for Chicago, he should see enough weekly volume to supply at least flex value for fantasy managers.
Coach Matt Nagy said Wednesday that Miller "might have had the best training camp of any player" on the Bears, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.
Miller apparently got off to a slow start before really finding his groove, with Nagy noting that the young wide receiver was giving "110 percent" on each snap by the end of camp. It's at least the second time a Chicago coach has mentioned Miller's improved effort this summer, and the team may be counting on him to be the second option in its passing game after Allen Robinson. The 25-year-old faces some questions that go beyond effort and preparation, as he hasn't done much on the perimeter to his point in his career, picking up the vast majority of his yards from the slot. The inside role works well for three-wideout formations, but Miller could see his ceiling limited if he doesn't also provide something in two-receiver sets.
Miller is preparing for added responsibility in the Chicago offense, spending more time learning the finer details of his position, Cam Ellis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Bears wide receivers coach Mike Furrey suggested Miller didn't have the best approach in his first two seasons, noting that the third-year pro has shown more intent this time around. There's also the matter of recurring shoulder injuries, which plagued Miller in 2018 and 2019 but could be less of a problem after he had offseason surgery for the second time in as many years. It seems Miller is back at full strength for the start of training camp, operating as the No. 2 receiver alongside Allen Robinson. While he's found most of his success from the slot to this point in his career, Miller could have more chances to operate outside in 2020.
Miller (shoulder) is on track to be ready for training camp, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miller played with a left shoulder injury throughout his rookie campaign, later getting offseason surgery. He made it back for 2019 training camp and eventually enjoyed a late-season breakout, but he re-injured the same shoulder Week 17 and had another surgery shortly thereafter. While the rehab process may impact Miller's participation in their offseason program, the Bears expect him to have clearance for the start of training camp in late July. With Taylor Gabriel recently released, the 2018 second-round pick is well-positioned for the No. 2 WR job in Chicago.
The Bears announced Tuesday that Miller underwent surgery to address the left shoulder injury he suffered in the team's Week 17 win over the Vikings, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.
Miller picked up the injury while returning a kickoff, finishing the season finale with one catch for five yards. While Miller is expected to make a full recovery in advance of training camp, it's somewhat disconcerting that he's now required a pair of procedures on the same shoulder following both of his first two NFL seasons. Assuming the 2018 second-round pick bounces back from his latest surgery as anticipated, however, he should retain a regular role in three-receiver sets for the Bears next season.
Miller won't return to Sunday's game in Minnesota due to a left shoulder injury, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miller was injured while returning a kickoff, taking a hard hit in the process. With his second season officially over, he'll end the campaign with 52 catches (on 85 targets) for 656 yards and two touchdowns. Although his performance this season was disappointing, over the second half of the season he was a clear fantasy starter with the exception of his disappearing act Week 16. As he enters the third year of a four-year rookie contract, a strong case can be made for him to be drafted as a top-40 option at wide receiver.
Miller suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's game at Minnesota, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.
While returning a kickoff, Miller took a hard hit and made a visit to the sideline tent. He was deemed questionable to return, but because he wasn't holding a helmet, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune speculated Miller may not make another appearance Sunday. If so, Miller will end his day with one five-yard catch.
Miller caught one pass for two yards in the Bears' 26-3 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
After being targeted at least nine times in four of his previous five games, Miller saw just two passes thrown his way in a game Chicago trailed throughout. After likely hurting many fantasy teams in the fantasy championship week, he'll look to bounce back in Week 17 against the Vikings.
