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

Miller (knee) is currently on track to be healthy enough to play in Week 1, although he may be limited in his snaps early on, ESPN.com reports.

Miller, who is recovering from January surgery to repair a torn ACL, is on track to play in the season opener, and could debut in the third preseason game, the Denver Post reports.

Miller (knee) took part in individual drills during OTAs on Wednesday, Lindsey Jones of USA Today reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Miller is making progress from the torn ACL that he sustained in Week 16, but team drills are likely still in the distant future, namely training camp or even the regular season. The Broncos exercised their team option on the pass rusher during the offseason, though, guaranteeing that he'll suit up for the team through 2015.
The Broncos have picked up their fifth-year contract option on Miller (knee), Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

By having his option picked up, Miller is in line to earn $9.754 million with the Broncos in 2015. From a more immediate standpoint, the outstanding pass rusher is rehabbing from January surgery to repair a torn ACL that he suffered late last season. It's unclear at this stage, however, how close to 100 percent the linebacker (who notched 35 tackles and five sacks in nine games last season) will be to start the season.
Miller, who underwent surgery in January to repair a torn ACL, is progressing in his recovery but said he won't rush back from the injury, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Miller was suspended for the first six games of last season and was only able to rack up five sacks in the eight games in which he played, before suffering the torn ACL in Week 16 against the Texans. If he's able to get back to full strength, he could be a solid IDP play this season, especially if teams focus their attention on newly-acquired pass rusher DeMarcus Ware.
Miller (knee) will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair his torn ACL, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Miller, who tore his ACL in Week 16, will go under the knife with the hope likely being that he can make a full recovery ahead of 2014 training camp. His loss wasn't felt in the team's Week 17 matchup, but Denver may have a hard time manufacturing pressure on Phillip Rivers in the divisional round.
Miller is done for the season, after suffering a torn ACL, the Denver Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Though the Broncos rolled to a 6-0 record with Miller serving a suspension to start the season, this still represents a huge blow to the team's defense -- in particular in the pass-rushing department -- as the playoffs approach. His absence will create added opportunities for Nate Irving, in Week 17 and beyond.

2014

2013

It might seem wrong to list a superstar like Miller this low in the rankings, but IDP leagues don't necessarily measure real-life impact as much as they do raw statistics, and Miller's role as a linebacker/defensive end hybrid leaves him with fewer tackle opportunities than the other players with the linebacker designation. It's safe to say that Miller should still be owned in most IDP leagues since he's a remarkable pass rusher, but his failure to reach the 70-tackle mark the last two years limits his upside in most scoring systems. What further limits his upside is that he'll be suspended for the first six games of the season after violating the leagues drug policy. It's a major blow to his season totals, reducing his IDP value even more.

2012

Although Denver primarily runs a 4-3 alignment, Millerís rare ability as a pass rusher results in him being used more like a defensive end or a 3-4 outside linebacker, which in turn limits his ability to pile up tackles. Like DeMarcus Ware, though, Miller is such a star as a pass rusher that he remains an IDP factor. He finished his rookie year with 64 tackles (50 solo) and 11.5 sacks despite missing one game and playing hurt in four others with torn thumb ligaments. With better health and a full NFL offseason heading into 2012, improvement is expected from Miller.

2011

Although Miller specialized in rushing the quarterback at Texas A&M, Denver is hoping to turn this year's second overall pick into an all-around 4-3 linebacker, albeit one who figures to blitz more often than most. In addition to being an intelligent, productive player, Miller is also a remarkable athlete, as he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds after weighing in at 247 pounds at the NFL Combine. Miller totaled 27 sacks and 39 tackles for loss in his last two years at Texas A&M, so he has all the makings of a future NFL star.
