Bears | Zach Miller nearing full return

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 20:34:09 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (concussion) was once again in a red jersey, which signifies no contact, during practice on Tuesday, Aug. 23, but is thought to be close to returning from the NFL's concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: Miller's preseason concussion trouble doesn't really change his outlook at all, as he was always a risky TE2 due to a long list of medical issues over the years.

Bears | Zach Miller able to practice

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 20:56:53 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (concussion) returned to the practice field Saturday, Aug. 20, although he wore a red jersey to signify he is off-limits in terms of contact.

Fantasy Tip: Miller re-emerged as a fantasy option last season, but his injury history is a big concern. Treat Miller more as a TE2 due to his propensity for injury.

Bears | Zach Miller meets with team doctors

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 23:58:15 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (concussion), who returned to practice on Saturday, Aug. 13, was absent on Tuesday, Aug. 16, and while head coach John Fox indicated Miller hadn't suffered a setback he did meet with team doctors.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries are always a concern, but given Miller's lengthy history this is exactly the kind of thing fantasy owners that invested a pick on last year's feel-good story didn't want to see. He's a risky TE2 with a moderately high ceiling and a very low floor.

Bears | Zach Miller expected to practice again

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 08:07:08 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (concussion) is expected to practice again Sunday, Aug. 14, after he was limited during practice Saturday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Miller likely will be eased back into practice after sitting out about two weeks because of his concussion. He should receive some preseason snaps but likely will be limited during those games. He should be a solid option in the passing game this season and probably will be a No. 2 tight end in most leagues.

Bears | Zach Miller back at practice

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 16:51:03 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (concussion) returned to practice Saturday, Aug. 13, for the first time since July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Long one of the league's most injury-prone players, Miller had a nice second-half run with the Bears after Martellus Bennett was lost for the season. With Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White healthy (for now), the 31-year-old is going to have a tough time matching his production down the stretch last year. He's a TE2 in 12-team leagues.

Bears | Four Chicago pass catchers sitting out

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 11:52:53 -0700

Chicago Bears WRs Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), Kevin White (rest), Eddie Royal (concussion) and TE Zach Miller (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Aug. 5. Head coach John Fox said it was a scheduled day off for White, and Fox noted both Royal and Miller are improving.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to view Jeffery as a fringe No. 1 receiver worth grabbing any time into Round 2 of drafts, whereas White is an upside candidate to target into the middle rounds as your No. 3 or No. 4 wide receiver. Miller is a late-round option after a decent finish to 2015 (31 receptions, 404 yards and five touchdowns over the final eight games). At this point, Royal is a low-end option in deep leagues.

Bears | Two Bears idle Thursday

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 08:01:17 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (concussion) and TE Zach Miller (concussion) are out of practice Thursday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Royal could end up starting in the slot, or he may not even make the team. He has been pretty underwhelming after a strong rookie season in 2008, and at age 30, he's a questionable WR5 flyer. Miller is 31, and his 34-439-5 line last season was by far the best of his career. The Bears don't have a lot of proven options to throw to, and he could be heavily involved. However, there are options with more upside in that low-end TE1 range. He's a safer TE2 with upside.

Bears | Zach Miller has concussion

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 10:06:44 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (concussion) has been diagnosed with a concussion, according to head coach John Fox.

Fantasy Tip: Miller will be sidelined until he is able to pass all of his concussion tests. He will have several weeks to recover from the injury and should be ready for the start of the season. Miller should have a solid role in the passing game in 2016 and can be a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Bears | Zach Miller in uncharted waters

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 09:33:43 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller is not rehabbing a major injury for the first offseason of his NFL career, which began in 2009. He has the starting job all to himself with the departure of TE Martellus Bennett, but Miller must master new offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains' system this offseason to pick up where he left off.

Fantasy Tip: The bulk of Miller's production came in a seven-game stretch during the second half of the season. He was targeted a mere seven times in the first eight games of 2015. At 31 years old, a true breakout season may not be in the cards, but he should provide reasonably strong TE1 numbers as long as he remains on the field.

Bears | Zach Miller looking to keep it going

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 11:18:50 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller said he expects to be one of the offense's main weapons in the 2016 season. "I think everyone as a playmaker, you expect to be that," he said. "I'm going to have an opportunity to show that ability and really kind of just take over from how we left off last season. I showed there were opportunities where I could make plays. That's kind of how I'm going to approach how we begin the year." Miller accumulated 34 catches for 439 yards and a team-high five touchdown receptions in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Miller was one of the more surprising contributors around the league last season, after missing the previous three years due to injuries. He has the chance to be a real sleeper in the upcoming campaign, as the team shipped out former starting tight end Martellus Bennett, meaning the job is basically Miller's to lose. Considering the rapport he built with Jay Cutler, there is hope he can build on last year's production and perhaps solidify himself as one of the best value picks at his position later in drafts.
