Zach Miller: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Miller (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Martellus Bennett (ribs) out for the season, Miller has emerged as Jay Cutler's go-to target the past couple weeks. Given that Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is out and Eddie Royal (illness) is doubtful, Miller should be in for another heavy workload, if he's able to play. If not, Khari Lee or Rob Housler will start at tight end, complementing a wideout group of Marc Mariani, Josh Bellamy, Deonte Thompson and Cameron Meredith. Even against a vulnerable Detroit defense, Cutler has a tough task at hand. The Bears haven't revealed Miller's practice status for Friday, but he was a non-participant both Wednesday and Thursday.
Miller (toe) didn't practice Wednesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Despite being hindered by a rib injury this month, Miller has continued to prosper in a passing attack sans Martellus Bennett (rib) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), earning at least six targets in five of the past six games. With a catch percentage of 70.6% during that span -- 24 catches on 34 targets -- Miller has been a reliable option, though only four targets have occurred in the red zone. In any case, a toe concern is afflicting him at the moment, which places a further damper on his Week 17 potential.
Miller secured seven of eight targets for 69 yards in Sunday's 26-21 victory over the Buccaneers.

Miller (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Given that he's only dealing with an illness, Miller should be fine for Sunday's game in Minnesota, after posting a 5-85-1 receiving line on six targets against the Redskins in Week 14. He was able to practice both Thursday and Friday, but owners will still want to confirm his active status before Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff. With Martellus Bennett (ribs) done for the season, Miller has a nice opportunity to emerge as Chicago's second option in the passing game behind Alshon Jeffery (questionable-calf/illness).

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

With Martellus Bennett the unquestioned starter at tight end for 2014, Miller was on track battle for a role as his top backup, along with Matthew Mulligan, Dante Rosario, and Jeron Mastrud. That prospect was derailed by an August foot injury that landed Miller on IR.

2012

Miller is an intriguing player who hasn't been able to stay healthy long enough to put it all together. His frame and physical attributes make him an ideal target for QB Blaine Gabbert, but patience is likely wearing thin for the injury-plagued Miller, who will likely have to put it all together during training camp to be assured of a roster spot.

2011

Miller showed great promise in his rookie year, but regressed significantly in 2010. As it currently stands, Marcedes Lewis has a stranglehold on the tight end position, and only seems to be improving. Targets may therefore be few and far between for Miller in 2011.

2010

The lesser known Zach Miller showed signs of development after two notable late-season games last year. In Week 13 against Houston he had three catches for 74 yards, and in Week 17 in a meaningless game against the Browns he recorded eight grabs for 69 yards and two touchdowns. He should continue to develop as a sophomore this year and could push Marcedes Lewis for the starting job.

2009

Miller will battle for a backup tight end spot in 2009.
