RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

If Denver's season would have closed on Week 17, the narrative on Miller's 2015 would have been that the talented pass rusher put together a solid-yet-unspectacular campaign, his 11 sacks representing a career-low for a full season. Of course, he then put on his Lawrence Taylor costume and got to the quarterback five times combined in the AFC title game and Super Bowl 50. While Miller is yet to come under contract for 2016, he holds the potential to set a new single-season sack record in the future, making him indespensible to the Broncos regardless of how Shaq Barrett and Shane Ray performed as rookies.

2015

Miller will once again headline a strong pass rush for the Broncos after posting 14 sacks last season, his third double-digit sack total in four seasons. The biggest fantasy knock on Miller is that he he is usually classified as a linebacker, and he has yet to break the 70-tackle mark in any season. He would be an elite option if he was listed as a defensive end, but because he doesn't come close to 100 tackles, his fantasy upside can be limited.

2014

Miller is one of the best pass rushers in the league when he is on the field, but that has been an issue for him lately. He was suspended for the first six games of last season for violating the league's drug policy, and he is currently rehabbing from a torn ACL, which he suffered in December. It's unclear how quickly he'll be able to get back on the field, although it wouldn't be surprising if he missed some (or even all) of training camp, as he said recently that he will not rush back from the injury. Miller's biggest IDP issue is that he qualifies as a linebacker, and with his low tackle totals -- he's never reached the 70-tackle mark -- he is bypassed by many others at his position despite the sack-upside.

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.
