2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

August 19, 2018
Head coach Adam Gase said Sunday that McMillan will start at middle linebacker to begin the season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
Despite the fact that McMillan never made his regular season debut with the Dolphins last season after tearing his ACL in August, the team is committed to him being its starting middle linebacker given what they've seen from him before and after his injury. McMillan was a second-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft after a standout career at Ohio State.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
