2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Dolphins tailored McMillan's defensive role in 2019 to minimize situations wherein his weakness in coverage would be exposed, resulting in the 24-year-old's quality of play increasing but his snap count sharply declining. It currently looks as though coach Brian Flores is unlikely to ever utilize McMillan as a three-down player unless he can improve his skills in coverage, which would minimize McMillan's individual statistics and fantasy value. If the former Ohio State star were able to develop and turn into an asset against the pass, however, his strong tackling abilities could lend him upside to rank among the league's tackle leaders.

McMillan was traded to the Raiders from the Dolphins on Saturday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
This is a bit of a shocking transaction given Miami lost possible starting middle linebacker Vince Biegel (Achilles) early in the preseason, leaving Elandon Roberts and Kamu Grugier-Hill as the only possible veteran fill-ins. It's also strange from the Raiders' perspective given the team just signed Cory Littleton to a three-year, $36 million contract this past offseason which would seemingly make the McMillan acquisition redundant. It's unclear what type of compensation was given up to acquire the 2017 second-round pick, but the 24-year-old will nevertheless be forced to compete for defensive snaps in 2020.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2018
2017
After losing his rookie season to a torn ACL, McMillan not only shored up a long-standing position of weakness for the Dolphins at middle linebacker, but emerged as a leader among the team's defensive front in 2018. The 2017 second-round pick picked up steam after a rocky start to the year, averaging 7.9 tackles per game for the last eight games of the season and ending the year with the second-most tackles of any Dolphins player (105) trailing only Kiko Alonso. As the Dolphins shift towards a rebuild, McMillan has solidified himself as a piece to construct around.
The 54th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, McMillan's entire rookie season was lost after he suffered a torn ACL in the team's preseason opener. The lack of a starting MLB haunted the Dolphins throughout their entire 2017 campaign, and the lack of competition brought in during the offseason suggests confidence that the position remains firmly McMillan's. The athletic 21-year-old should be a key piece of what looks to be a stout Miami front seven.
Originally McMillan was expected to open the season as a backup linebacker but the placement of Koa Misi (neck) on season ending injured reserve has made McMillan the favorite to start at OLB from day one. He was selected in the second-round of the 2017 NFL Draft and could be a part an impressive trio of linebackers along with Kiko Alonso and Lawrence Timmons.
