As a rookie, Miller averaged 2.2 catches (on 3.6 targets) for 29 yards and 0.46 touchdowns. Given his measurables, he has solid speed with good burst and agility, and fared well as a route runner in Matt Harmon’s Reception Perception charting. He also came in second in Kevin Zatloukal’s Rookie WR Success Model, which predicts success in a player’s first three seasons. He faded down the stretch as his playing time waned. He played 64% of the snaps through Week 11, and just 46% of the snaps in his final six games. In those first 11 games, he played at a 2.9-40-0.56 clip, which are low-end WR3 numbers. He’s coming off of offseason shoulder surgery, so he may get off to a slow start, but since he’s being drafted as a fantasy WR5, owners can afford to be patient. If Matt Nagy’s offense takes off in its second season, Miller should be one of the primary beneficiaries.
