Draft note
by John Paulsen
In his second season, Miller improved on his 33-423-7 rookie season with 52-656-2 as a sophomore. He played behind Taylor Gabriel when Gabriel was healthy, and the Bears signed Ted Ginn to replace Gabriel, so it remains to be seen just how much they’ll utilize Miller. But when they’ve called upon him, he has delivered. In seven games that Gabriel missed, Miller averaged 4.1-53-0.29 on 6.4 targets compared to just 2.6-32-0.0 on a meager 4.4 targets when Gabriel was active. This includes a stretch of five games where Miller caught 33 passes for 431 yards and two touchdowns. Those no-Gabriel splits equate to low-end WR3 numbers for Miller, and he’s still growing as a receiver, as evidenced by Matt Harmon’s Reception Perception charting, which gave Miller good marks for his route running. He ran 78% of his routes out of the slot, and should see extra targets from Nick Foles, if Foles wins the starting job.

CHI WR Anthony Miller - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Anthony Miller saw improvement in his second season as he was featured more in Chicago’s offense. He went from 54 targets to 85 and went from playing in 53% of the snaps to 64%. He was second on the team in receiving yards (656) and should finish in that spot again as he plays outside Allen Robinson. Miller had a strong 5-game stretch in 2019 where he finished 33-431-2. If he could keep that production up, or be a little more consistent, he could easily produce WR3 numbers.

Fantasy Downside
Miller would often disappear as he had five games where he finished with five receiving yards or less. One could argue that he’ll see more playing time with Taylor Gabriel gone, but the Bears added Ted Ginn Jr. who essentially replaces that body. Plus the additions of Jimmy Graham and Cole Kmet are slightly worrisome. Plus he’s in an offense with a poor line and bad quarterback play.

2020 Bottom Line
We expect Miller to put up career bests in receptions and receiving yards this season. He’s not someone who we expect to have a breakout season, but he’s talented enough to produce at a WR3 level. He needs to become much more consistent in 2020, and that lack of consistency is why he’s being drafted in the very late rounds. He has enough upside to take a late-round flier on, but don’t expect a Pro Bowl season from Miller. He should be viewed as WR3 or WR4 heading into 2020.
