2019 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Facing competition

McMillan (undisclosed) has been overtaken by Sam Eguavoen as the starting middle linebacker in the early stages of training camp, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
McMillan remains listed as the starter on Miami's first preseason depth chart, but Eguavoen has spent the majority of training camp working with the first team and has played like the superior option in coverage. Eguavoen joined the Dolphins earlier this offseason following a stint in the CFL, and he appears to have a legitimate shot at beating out McMillan. A 2017 second-round pick, McMillan has been hampered by injuries throughout the early days of camp and will look to return to full health and rebound. In any case, Miami's linebacker position battle will be worth tracking through the preseason.

Exploiting the Matchups: Week 1 Start/Sit

Luke Hoover acknowledges that Week 1 can be wildly hit-or-miss for fantasy lineups, but he still sees obvious upgrades -- including Philip Rivers -- and downgrades.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
