Miller wasn't targeted in Chicago's 16-6 win over the Rams.
This was the first time all season that Miller failed to catch a pass, but he's averaging fewer than three targets over his last four games. Based on his lack of volume, he's become a touchdown-dependent fantasy option.
Despite Chase Daniel throwing 39 passes, Miller's two targets were the fewest he's seen all season. Fortunately, when Tarik Cohen threw a pass on a trick play, Miller was on the receiving end of the one-yard score to salvage his fantasy day. He's only surpassed 50 yards once this season, but he's scored a touchdown in five of his last eight games, and his lack of yardage upside makes him a bit touchdown-dependent as a fantasy option.
Miller caught three passes for 41 yards while adding an eight-yard pass completion in Chicago's 23-16 victory over the Lions.
Miller wasn't a big part of the Bears' game plan with Chase Daniel starting at quarterback, as he was targeted just four times, but he did complete a pass to his quarterback on a trick play to move the chains. With at least 35 yards in five of his last six games along with four touchdowns since Chicago's Week bye, he's emerged as a solid fantasy performer in his rookie season.
With Chicago leading for most of the contest, Miller saw just three targets while serving as Mitch Trubisky's third option among the Chicago receivers. However, he cashed in by finding the end zone for fourth time over the last six games, giving him five scores on the season. With just a single game over 50 yards on the season, he's settled in as a mostly touchdown-dependent fantasy option.
Miller enjoyed a breakout day at the expense of a Lions secondary missing Darius Slay (knee), posting his first 100-yard receiving day as a pro. Miller impressively broke a tackle on his 45-yard touchdown reception, which was his fourth of the campaign. The 24-year-old notably outpaced Taylor Gabriel in targets by three Sunday, a sign that he could be transitioning into an official No. 2 receiver role. He'll look to put together another strong effort against the Vikings in a Week 11 divisional clash.
