Bears | Zach Miller seeking $5 million per year

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 11:45:05 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March of 2016, is asking for $5 million per year in his next contract, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Prior to playing 15 games last year, Miller had not appeared in a regular-season game since 2011. Despite his breakout second half, the Bears are likely to look at other options - including perhaps bringing back Martellus Bennett at roughly the same price - if Miller's asking price does not drop. If Miller remains in Chicago and Bennett does not, he has low-end TE1 potential. If both stick around, the 31-year-old journeyman would be a high-upside fantasy backup at best.

Bears | Zach Miller won't play Sunday

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 09:22:17 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (toe) is not active for Week 17's game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) did not practice during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Rob Housler ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is likely to start at tight end for the Bears but he is not a recommended FantasyScore option.

Bears | Zach Miller questionable for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 12:47:03 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (toe) did not practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as questionable for the Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: After failing to practice all week, Miller ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) should be viewed as risky fantasy option for Week 17. He has 18 catches for 211 yards and a touchdown over his past three games, and his increased involvement in the passing game makes him a potential low-priced flier, if he is active against Detroit. You'll want to have a backup plan ready and check back for an official announcement on his status Sunday, Jan. 3, if you're planning to roll out Miller at FantasyScore, though.

Bears | Zach Miller, Eddie Royal miss practice

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 11:26:59 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (toe) and WR Eddie Royal (illness) both missed practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: That's two straight missed practices this week for both players, which doesn't bode well for their status Sunday. Miller ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is a nice value pick at tight end in a solid matchup for daily gamers, just make sure he's playing. Royal ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should see his role increase with Alshon Jeffery out, but he remains an unattractive deep sleeper.

Bears | Zach Miller might be sneaky play

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 22:46:22 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller will face the Detroit Lions in Week 17. The Lions have allowed the most touchdowns (12) to opposing tight ends this season while yielding 76 receptions and 820 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Since Martellus Bennett succumbed to injury Miller ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been a solid FantasyScore option when the matchup is favorable, and this game certainly fits the bill.

Bears | Zach Miller, Eddie Royal sit out

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:12:33 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (toe) and WR Eddie Royal (illness) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has at least five grabs and 57 yards in each of the last three games, and he's a great value pick in daily leagues against a Detroit Lions team that struggles to cover tight ends. Royal ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has 10 catches in the last two games but hasn't done much with it. He remains a low-end receiver on FantasyScore, even with Alshon Jeffery out.

Bears | Zach Miller leads team in receiving

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 18:35:31 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller led his team in receiving yardage in Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, posting seven grabs for 69 yards on eight targets. No one else had more than five grabs or 32 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has stepped up his game, replacing Martellus Bennett nicely. He has re-emerged as a solid low-cost FantasyScore option.

Bears | Zach Miller active Sunday

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 08:48:12 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (ribs) is active for Week 15's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) makes a solid value play in FantasyScore and his fantasy stock has climbed in recent weeks due to the season-ending injury to TE Martellus Bennett (ribs). He had five receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown last week and the Bears should continue to make him a key part of their offense for the foreseeable future.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery, Zach Miller questionable

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 11:14:12 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf, illness) and TE Zach Miller (ribs) are both listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Minnesota Vikings. Jeffery returned to practice Friday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign that Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) was able to practice Friday, but he may be a game-time decision Sunday morning. Check the inactives before putting him in your daily lineups. If he's playing, he's a solid FantasyScore pick, as he's been one of the most productive receivers this year when health. Miller ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should be OK barring a setback. Be careful, though, as he's been heavily touchdown-reliant in recent weeks.
