Draft note
by John Paulsen
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.

CHI WR Anthony Miller - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
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.

Fantasy Downside
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.
