2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 51st overall pick in last year's draft, Miller showed some sparks as a rookie while playing through a shoulder injury, scoring seven times on only 54 targets and making two plays of 40-plus yards. At 5-11, 190, Miller has only average size, and his 4.50 timed speed is similarly middle of the road. But he's athletic - 39-inch vertical - and a polished route runner who scored 32 TDs in his final 26 college games. Moreover, the situation for Miller in Chicago is good. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky improved in Year 2, and coach Matt Nagy is one of the more innovative offensive minds in the league. There are a few mouths to feed in this offense - Allen Robinson returns as a low-end No. 1, Tarik Cohen is a weapon out of the backfield, TE Trey Burton saw 76 targets a year ago, and the speedy, 165-pound Taylor Gabriel gets plays called for him - but there is plenty of room for Miller to carve out a significant role in this high-powered attack. One other concern is the shoulder Miller dislocated five or six times last year and on which he had surgery in January. He didn't do much during the offseason program but received clearance for the start of training camp. Read Past Outlooks

Missing out on valuable reps

August 22, 2019
Coach Matt Nagy suggested Miller's absence due to an ankle injury could impact his chemistry with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, Dan Wiederer of The Chicago Tribune reports. "The biggest challenge is the timing with the quarterback," Nagy said Wednesday. "That's the No. 1 challenge."
ANALYSIS
Miller's role in the slot isn't in any danger, but the accumulation of missed practice time could impact his involvement early in the season. He was held out of offseason practices while recovering from shoulder surgery, and now has been out for almost two weeks with the ankle sprain. Miller still has time to get ready for Week 1, though it doesn't help that the Bears play in the Thursday opener against Green Bay on Sept. 5.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Taken with the 51st overall pick, Miller could get opportunities right out of the gate. Allen Robinson, who's returning from a torn ACL, is the team's No. 1, but after him only the perennially injured Kevin White and 165-pound Taylor Gabriel stand in Miller's way. Tailback Tarik Cohen functions as an extra receiver of sorts, too, but if Miller proves ready, he could wind up as Mitchell Trubisky's No. 2 target. At 5-11, 190, Miller has only average size, and his 4.50 40 run at his pro day was similarly middle of the road, but he's an explosive athlete (39-inch vertical jump) and a polished route runner who scored 32 TDs in his last 26 college games.
