K'Andre Miller

24-Year-Old DefensemanD
New York Rangers
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Miller enjoyed a breakout year in 2022-23, erupting for nine goals, 34 assists, 162 hits, 105 blocked shots and a plus-12 rating in 79 contests. Once a forward in high school, Miller's still got enough scoring instincts to be a valuable fantasy defenseman, especially combined with his solid defense and physical play. Miller saw just 31 seconds per game on the power play last year. If he can more firmly establish himself on the second power-play unit, that would further increase his value. The 23-year-old likely still has another level to his game, but even if he hovers around the 40-45 point mark, he'll be a solid No. 3 or 4 fantasy blueliner for 2023-24. If he's able to take his power-play production to the next level, Miller will jump to a higher tier this year. Read Past Outlooks

Miller notched an assist and four shots on goal in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Canadiens.
ANALYSIS
Miller snapped a nine-game point drought with his helper on Alexis Lafreniere's empty-net tally. The 24-year-old Miller continues to play in a top-four role, but he's had a bit of a down year on offense. He's at 30 points, 93 shots on net, 143 hits, 111 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 76 appearances. Miller produced 43 points in 79 outings a year ago.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Expected to sign bridge deal
DNew York Rangers
May 23, 2023
According to The Athletic's Arthur Staple, assuming he's interested in signing an extension, Miller will likely be offered a one or two-year contract this summer.
ANALYSIS
Staple believes the Rangers will try to sign Miller, an impending restricted free agent, to a bridge deal in order to maintain some flexibility with the salary cap. Miller had his best year yet in 2022-23, setting career highs in goals with nine, assists with 34, shots with 113, hits with 162 and blocks with 105 through 79 regular-season appearances.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2020
Miller was the only Ranger to play in all 82 regular season games last season. He posted seven goals and 20 points, but looking at Miller's offensive numbers doesn't tell the entire story. The No. 22 overall pick from 2018 was a force in all three zones, particularly late in the season and throughout the playoffs. Miller will never be a huge fantasy asset because Adam Fox is running New York's No. 1 power-play unit, but his value to the Rangers is immeasurable. Scheduled for restricted free agency next summer and still just 22 years old, Miller is either going to get a bridge deal from the team, or, more likely, a big money long-term contract.
Outside of Norris Trophy winner Adam Fox, Miller was probably the Rangers' most pleasant surprise a season ago. The former No. 22 overall pick (2018) forced his way onto the New York roster with a strong training camp and went on to play in 53 of 56 regular-season games, primarily while paired with veteran Jacob Trouba. Miller ended up being named to the NHL's All-Rookie Team on the strength of a campaign which saw him post 5 goals, 12 points, 62 shots, 93 hits, 77 blocks and a plus-9 rating. Miller's upside is through the roof given his physical gifts and the fact he won't turn 22 years of age until late January, but he's still a much better fantasy option in keeper/dynasty leagues as opposed to redraft formats.
Miller has done nothing but grow his stock as a prospect since being selected 22nd overall in the 2018 draft. He converted from forward to defenseman in high school and quickly showed an aptitude for his new position at the University of Wisconsin, using his 6-foot-5, 210-pound frame and excellent skating ability to stifle opposing chances. It's a matter of when, not if, he makes the Rangers' roster, and Miller could well be penciled into the lineup from the get-go, especially considering the team's dearth of alternatives on the left side of the blue line. That said, his focus will primarily be on the defensive aspects of the game, especially early on, so Miller's unlikely to deliver the type of point total in 2020-21 fantasy managers look for from defensemen.
