Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller is taking a physical with the Steelers.

Miller appeared set to sign with the Jaguars practice squad, but with an open spot on the 53-man roster for Pittsburgh after JuJu Smith-Schuster's shoulder injury, it appears Miller is set to join an active roster instead. The former second-round pick is a very intriguing potential slot option, and he's someone to watch in both redraft and dynasty leagues.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

The Jaguars are signing Anthony Miller to their practice squad, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The expectation is that Miller will be promoted when he gets into the swing of things with Jacksonville, and we'd say he has a definite shot to be the No. 3 wideout behind Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault Jr. with D.J. Chark (ankle) out. Significant redraft value is unlikely this year on an offense that spreads the ball around, but Miller's talent is worth stashing in dynasty leagues.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

The Texans are releasing Anthony Miller.

Houston just acquired Miller late this summer, and he caught a touchdown earlier this season for his new team. This release is a surprise, but Miller clearly must not have been a fit with the Texans for whatever reason. The former second-round pick is a talented player that shouldn't have much trouble landing with another team.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller (shoulder) is officially active for Thursday night.

After missing the first two games of the season with his shoulder issue, Miller is in the lineup for Houston for the first time since they acquired him during the summer. With Danny Amendola (hamstring) out, Miller is someone to watch. We're high on Miller's talent, but the Texans offense appears to be in a tough spot with rookie quarterback Davis Mills making his first career start.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller (shoulder) is expected to return for Week 1 or 2.

Aaron Wilson reports that Wilson's separated shoulder has no structural damage and that he could return for the first week or two of the regular season. So Miller sounds like he won't be playing any more this preseason, which is not surprising after he was carted off with the shoulder injury over the weekend. Miller will likely go undrafted in most fantasy drafts.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller was carted off the field.

Miller suffered an apparent shoulder injury, which he’s unfortunately been dealing with all throughout his young career. The recent acquisition from the Texans is looking to win a big role on offense this summer, but it looks like he might miss time with this issue. Hopefully Miller is feeling better and can return to the field soon.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

The Texans are acquiring Anthony Miller.

According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport, Miller is being moved from Chicago to Houston with a swap of late-round draft picks, so this is basically a move that gets Miller a fresh start. The former second-round pick of the Bears has exciting potential and caught seven touchdowns as a rookie, but things just didn't work out how either party would have liked. The Texans have been very aggressive in adding talent under first-year general manager Nick Caserio, and Miller will look to compete for a big role in offense this summer.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller (shoulder) has been ruled out for the rest of today.

Miller's second NFL season ends with 52 receptions for 656 yards and two touchdowns, but he came on strong toward the end to the season with a couple of 100-yard performances since Thanksgiving. Miller has the ability to be a bigger part of Chicago's offense moving forward, but it might help if the team happens to part ways with veteran receiver Taylor Gabriel, which could make Miller more of a clear No. 2 option behind Allen Robinson.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller (shoulder) is questionable to return for the Bears.

Miller has dealt with some shoulder issues through two NFL seasons, but hopefully he's able to get back on the field today against the Vikings. We'll update you when more information becomes available on his status.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller stays hot in loss to the Packers.

Miller saw a team-high 15 targets and caught nine passes for 118 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 21-13 loss to Green Bay. The Packers had a difficult time covering the second-year wideout, who has now gone for lines of 6/54, 6/77, 9/140, 3/42/1, and 9/118/1 over the past five games. It is surprising that it took so long for the Bears to feature Miller, but at least they should know he needs a significant role in 2020 and should continue to be a big part of the offense over the final two weeks. Next up is a Sunday Night Football matchup with the Chiefs.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller sees limited action in Week 1 loss.

Miller was noticeably absent for much of the game, which is a surprise considering he didn’t have an injury designation, though missed time in camp may have led to fewer snaps. While Miller is a definite hold based on talent, it was a concern to see Tarik Cohen have a role in the slot, and fantasy owners should probably look elsewhere until something changes.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller: "Chicago hasn't seen how I can play yet."

Miller spoke with Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune, and he talked about his rehab from a January shoulder surgery on his torn labrum. The 2018 second-round pick said that his shoulder dislocated "maybe five or six times," and you could see the pain he was in during the noticeable occurrences, with his arm hanging down. Despite the shoulder issues throughout his rookie season, Miller played in 16 of 17 games (including playoffs), catching seven touchdowns and showing the major flashes that made him one of our favorite prospects in last year's draft. Miller told Kane that he won't practice in offseason training until he's fully healed, but he said Bears head coach Matt Nagy will be "getting a beast coming back" when he gets on the field. The former Memphis receiver, who is rehabbing at home this offseason, added, "Chicago hasn't seen how I can play yet. Every time I tried to stiff arm [last season], it would come out, or if I kind of ran crazy, it would come out. Really I was playing games with like one arm, making it happen. This year, I've got two, so watch out." Miller certainly isn't lacking confidence, and he should be taken at his word that the shoulder injury had an impact on his play last season. He'll be one of the top mid-to-late-round targets in fantasy drafts this summer.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller caught three passes for 34 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Miller was also at the center of a non-catch controversy at the end of the first half for another chunk gain down the seam, but what should have been a catch and fumble was held up as an incompletion because there was no clear recovery on what was originally ruled an incomplete pass. Overall, Miller scored seven times as a rookie, and the Bears should be very encouraged by what they saw out of their second-round pick. The former Memphis star should be one of the better late-round targets in fantasy drafts over the summer.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller officially does not carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's playoff game.

The rookie receiver practiced fully all week, and his shoulder is apparently ready to take contact in the Wild Card Round against the Eagles. Miller, who has admitted he hasn't been 100% all season, will look to make an impact in his first career playoff game as the Bears start a potential run to the Super Bowl.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller (shoulder) was officially a full participant in Bears practice.

Miller's shoulder injury suffered a few days ago against the Vikings is at least not preventing him from practicing fully, so expect the rookie receiver to remain a full participant the next two days—we'll update you if he's downgraded to a limited or non-participant. Miller is expected to face the Eagles on Sunday, but contact could be a factor, so there's a chance he's listed as questionable when the final Wild Card Round injury report is released on Friday.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller (shoulder) has been ruled out for the rest of today's game.

Before leaving, Miller had two carries for seven yards. He appears to be dealing with a shoulder dislocation, and his status for the postseason is probably in doubt, especially with Chicago looking likely to play next weekend with the Rams up big over the Niners and likely to claim the No. 2 seed in the NFC. Miller's rookie regular season ends with 33 receptions for 423 yards and seven touchdowns along with six carries for 26 yards. Hopefully we see the exciting first-year player in the postseason.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller leaves game with apparent shoulder injury.

Miller just took a couple of reserves on back-to-back plays, and he apparently hurt his shoulder on the second one. The rookie receiver dealt with shoulder injuries this season, and he was hanging that arm down on his way to the locker room. We'll update you when more information becomes available on Miller's status.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller has been ejected against the Niners.

After Mitchell Trubisky was hit late on a slide, a mini scuffle broke out on the sideline. Niners cornerback Richard Sherman came running toward the Bears sideline throwing punches, and both Miller and Josh Bellamy threw punches back. The rookie receiver's day end with three receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown. This was Miller's first reception since Week 13, so it was good to see him get back on the stat sheet. Miller is unlikely to face more discipline for this incident, but it's possible that he does.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller did not catch a pass in Week 15.

The rookie receiver will likely have big games against the Packers throughout his career, but he was held to two receptions for 14 total in his first NFL season. This is two straight weeks without a reception for Miller, so he's obviously difficult to trust in fantasy championships.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller did not catch a pass in Week 14.

Miller’s lone reception the last two weeks came on the pass from Tarik Cohen late in last week’s game, so the rookie receiver is difficult to trust in fantasy lineups right now.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller scores in Bears' loss.

Miller caught one pass for one yard and a touchdown against the Giants, as he came up clutch with a touchdown reception on a crossing route on a "Philly Special" type of play where he appeared to be the primary option on a crossing route caught from Tarik Cohen. The rookie receiver has weekly upside given his ability, but ideally you'll have stronger fantasy options in the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller caught three passes for 41 yards in Chicago's win over Detroit.

Miller also completed an eight-yard pass to Chase Daniel. The second-round pick didn't carry the same upside this week with Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) out, but hopefully the starter will be good to go for Week 13. Miller gets a good draw against the Giants for that matchup.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller scores against the Vikings.

Miller caught two passes for 25 yards and a touchdown along with one carry for -1 yard in the Bears' big primetime win. The rookie receiver scored on an 18-yard sliding catch in the end zone, as he kept the ball off the ground to secure the catch. Miller is up to five receptions this season, and he'll look to do some damage on Thanksgiving against a Lions team he just lit up for a 5/122/1 line in Week 10 (though they did not have Darius Slay in the lineup).

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller caught five passes for 122 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Lions.

It was the best game of Miller's young career, as Detroit had no answer for the rookie or returning teammate Allen Robinson in a 34-22 victory. The Memphis product has gone for lines of 3/37/1, 5/49, and 5/122/1 over the past three weeks, and he looks like a worthy pickup in all formats with the hopes that he's taken over as Chicago's No. 2 receiver. Miller might have the best matchup out of all the pass-catchers for the Bears next week against Minnesota, so he should be on the FLEX radar.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller leads the Bears in Week 9 receiving.

Miller caught five passes (on six targets) for 49 yards and added one carry for nine yards against the Bills. The rookie receiver is still looking to crack 50 yards receiving in a game, but there's little question he has a bright future. He'll look to put together big performances in the second half of the season, starting next week against the Lions.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller scores in Bears' win.

Miller caught three passes for 37 yards and a touchdown and added one carry for seven yards in the Week 8 victory over the Jets. Miller's touchdown came on a nice back-shoulder catch on a four-yard pass. The rookie receiver isn't a highly-recommended fantasy option yet, but he could become a strong option down the stretch. It's worth noting he received a team-high seven targets with Allen Robinson II (groin) out.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller catches two passes against the Patriots.

Miller gained 35 yards on his two receptions (seven targets) in the Week 7 loss. The rookie receiver was targeted one one of Mitchell Trubisky's interceptions in the game, and the two appear to still be getting on the same page. Miller isn't a recommended fantasy option in redraft leagues at the moment.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller scores against the Dolphins.

Miller ran a route deep down the middle of the field, getting wide open for a 29 yards touchdown in the Bears' Week 6 overtime loss. The rookie didn't appear to be limited in his return from a separated shoulder, and he'll look to make more big plays next week against the Patriots.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller is off the injury report.

Miller is practicing fully and good to go after missing just one game because of his separated shoulder. The rookie receiver has some FLEX upside in a matchup with the Dolphins this Sunday, as No. 1 receiver Allen Robinson will have to deal with shutdown corner Xavien Howard for much of the day.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller (shoulder) was limited in practice.

The team was optimistic Miller would be able to practice today, and a limited participation is a fine way to start the week. He has a chance to be ready this Sunday as the team returns from its bye week.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller (shoulder) is week-to-week.

Miller is dealing with a dislocated shoulder. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says Miller is out this week against the Buccaneers, which isn’t surprising considering he was in a ton of pain during last week’s game. This could open the door for Kevin White to get more time for Chicago this week, but Allen Robinson is the obvious preferred fantasy option among the Bears receivers.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller (shoulder) did not practice today.

Miller is considered day-to-day, and hopefully we see him out there for tomorrow’s practice. The injury suffered on Sunday was a shoulder dislocation, so it’s probably something he can play through.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller suffers shoulder injury against the Cardinals.

The rookie receiver was grabbing at his wrist area after a target in the end zone, and it's apparently a wrist injury. He's now on the sideline with no helmet or gloves, and his day is probably done. Before leaving, Miller had four receptions for 35 yards. Hopefully whatever he's dealing with isn't too serious.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller scores first career touchdown in MNF victory.

Miller caught two passes for 11 yards, including a ten-yard score in the fourth quarter. Chicago's second-round pick has the talent to be a difference-maker, but his fantasy production will probably be volatile with Allen Robinson established as the clear No. 1 receiver and Jordan Howard, Trey Burton, Tarik Cohen, and Taylor Gabriel all involved. We'll see if Miller can keep it going in Week 3 against the Cardinals, but he is only an option in deeper redraft leagues right now.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller catches two passes in NFL debut.

Miller gained 14 yards on his two receptions. The second-round rookie receiver flashed his great route-running and hands on his two receptions, and he also showed excellent effort when throwing a block on a scramble by Mitchell Trubisky. He’s a clear top-three wide receiver with Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

Anthony Miller "has performed exceptionally well in training camp."

Larry Mayer of ChicagoBears.com says the second-round rookie receiver from Memphis "has shown excellent ball skills, hands and route-running ability," as well as excellent ability with the ball in his hands. All the talk surrounding Miller has been positive, which isn't surprising after how productive he was during his college career. We thought he was a first-round prospect, and he has the potential to be a big difference-maker for the Bears as a rookie. It'll be interesting to see how much time he gets with the starters in tonight's preseason game and moving forward this summer.

Anthony Miller | Free Agent WR

The Bears have selected Memphis wide receiver Anthony Miller with the No. 51 pick (second round) in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Chicago continued to revamp its receiving corps this offseason, as they add one of college football's most productive receivers over the last two seasons. Miller had lines of 95/1,434/14 and 96/1,462/18 during his junior and seniors seasons at Memphis, as he consistently got open and made plays despite not being a big or extremely athletic guy. Clearly he's not at the same level quite yet, but Steelers All-Pro Antonio Brown is a comp for Miller's style of play. As a rookie, Miller might slot right into the slot role for the Bears and could potentially become the number two option behind Allen Robinson. He's someone to keep an eye on throughout the summer leading up to fantasy drafts.
