Anthony Miller is an interesting second-year receiver option. He played well as a rookie, leading the Bears in receiving touchdowns (7). There was a seven-game stretch in 2018 where Miller averaged three receptions, 48 yards and 0.5 touchdowns. If we stretch that success out to a full season, it comes out to around 48 receptions and roughly 800 yards. Miller should see an increased role in 2019 as he has another year to develop with Mitch Trubisky and Matt Nagy.
Miller played through multiple injuries last season and underwent shoulder surgery during the offseason. So durability is going to be a question heading into 2019. And while he’s projected as the No. 2 guy in Chicago, there are a lot of receivers on this roster with similar talent. Chicago retained Taylor Gabriel, signed Cordarrelle Patterson in the offseason and drafted Riley Ridley in the fourth round.
2019 Bottom Line
While Miller has talent and could be a second-year breakout candidate, he also carries risk as a player who could provide a dud on any given week. The number of receivers on the roster, not even mentioning Tarik Cohen or Trey Burton, should give a little pause to people wanting to draft Miller. He’s a decent late-round flier in leagues with multiple WR flex options.
