RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Not to be confused with the TE Zach Miller whose eight-year career ended in 2014, this Miller only seemingly came out of nowhere - he's actually been around since 2009. Injuries, though, kept him off the field since 2011. But finally healthy last season, he found a role in Chicago when Martellus Bennett got banged up. He impressed enough that the Bears were comfortable trading Bennett to save cap space and going with Miller as the starter this season. An option quarterback in college, Miller has excellent size at 6-5, 240, and he showed he still has good speed since running a 4.53 40 at his pro day seven years ago: his 9.5 YPT ranked second to only Rob Gronkowski among TE last season, his 12.9 YPC ranked fourth, as did his 6.7 YAC, and he had seven receptions of 20-plus yards, an impressive total on such few looks. He also has sure hands, catching 73.9 percent of his targets (4th among TE), and he scored two more touchdowns than Bennett last year on nearly half as many targets. It would be naive to expect 16 games from such an injury-prone player – indeed, he dealt with a rib injury last year, which limited him to one target Week 13 – but Miller looks poised for a productive year if he just gets close to the 6.3 targets he averaged in his other five games after Week 11 last season.

2015

Despite having not appeared in an NFL game since 2011, Miller was on his way to claiming a roster spot with the Bears out of training camp last season. After excelling in the early stages of practices, Miller turned in an impressive preseason opener against the Eagles, reeling in six passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns. However, he suffered a foot injury in the next exhibition that effectively ended his chances of making the club, and he was ultimately placed on season-ending injured reserve. The Bears opted to bring him back in February on a one-year contract, and he’ll now have the chance with competing for Dante Rosario and a slew of other candidates for one of the two available reserve jobs behind starter Martellus Bennett. With Bennett emerging as one of the league's better tight ends last season and playing 90 percent of the Bears' offensive snaps, don’t expect Miller or any of the other backup candidates to see the field much.

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.
