Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller was held without a reception and was targeted just once versus the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 5.
Huddle Up: Miller is viewed as one of Chicago's bright young playmakers, but he was nowhere to be seen on Thursday night. Perhaps it was the lingering effects of an ankle injury that bothered him during the preseason. Whatever the reason, remain patient and keep Miller on roster.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (ankle) could have a limited role in the offense early in the season as he missed most of organized team activities and minicamp to a shoulder injury and most of the preseason with an ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Miller is still someone to target late in drafts for his long-term value, but he has struggled to learn the nuances of the offense and now has missed most of the offseason and preseason. He might be someone to keep an eye on via the waiver wire for the first couple of weeks.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (ankle) did not practice Sunday, Aug. 11, because of his sprained ankle, but head coach Matt Nagy said Miller should be ready for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Miller will have several weeks to recover from his ankle injury. He likely will be a top-three receiver for the Bears in 2019 and has a chance to receive a solid amount of targets. He can be considered a late-round option in fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller was listed as a starting receiver, alongside WRs Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel, on the first unofficial depth chart.
Huddle Up: Miller only caught 33 balls last season, but seven of them were for touchdowns, which tied for 16th in the league. He'll need more volume to pad that fluke-like touchdown rate, but he's a WR5 target.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) was on the field for the start of training camp Friday, July 26.
Huddle Up: Miller is fully healthy heading into his second season, and after hauling in seven touchdowns as a rookie, he will have WR3 upside as Chicago's starting slot receiver.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) said Friday, April 5 that he painfully dislocated his left shoulder 'maybe five or six times' during his rookie season. He had surgery to repair a torn labrum in January, and he has been rehabbing at his alma mater at the University of Memphis. He doesn' expected to practice much in the offseason until he is fully healed.
Huddle Up: Miller is determined to take a big step forward in his second NFL season, and he could be quite the sleeper in the the middle to late rounds on draft day. His rehab is reportedly going well, and he should be able to surpass the 33 catches, 423 yards and seven touchdowns he posted in 2018.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) might not be 100 percent until training camp after undergoing surgery in January to fix his injured left shoulder. General manager Ryan Pace said Miller 'could be limited' in organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp this spring.
Huddle Up: It sounds like there is no worry of Miller being ready for the season, but they might hold him out of OTAs and minicamp. Fantasy owners wouldn't mind that, as he would be preserved for training camp and the preseason. Miller managed seven TDs in 2018, and he might be a nice late-round pick in many drafts later this summer if he gets back to 100 percent.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) should not miss significant time during the offseason following his upcoming shoulder surgery, according to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, who believes Miller will be ready to go at or near the start of the team's offseason program.
Huddle Up: Biggs also mentioned he thought Miller could double his receptions and receiving yards in Year 2, which would put him in the neighborhood of 70 catches and 900 yards -- solid production assuming he continues to make things happen in the red zone. There's more upside with Miller than anyone else in the Bears receiving group, and he could emerge as a legit weekly starter if he continues to develop.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller finished with three receptions for 34 yards on five targets in the NFC Wild Card Game playoff loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Miller wrapped up his rookie season with 33 receptions, 423 yards and seven touchdowns, showing glimpses of brilliance which made him a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He has a ton of upside and will be a dangerous slot receiver in this league and a good play for PPR fantasy league players going forward.
