After he caught seven touchdowns as a rookie in 2018, the Miller breakout train was easy to get on last year. But offseason shoulder surgery brought a slow start, and the second-year man finished with 52 receptions for 656 yards and two scores.

From Week 11-Week 15 last year, Miller had 33 catches (6.6 per game) for 431 yards (86.2 per game) on 52 targets (10.4 per game). He was WR12 in standard scoring over that span, and WR8 in full PPR.

Miller had a dud in Week 16 (one catch for two yards), then he left Week 17 injured and had offseason surgery on his left shoulder again. So the fantasy buzz around him might be down.

Nick Foles is not a good quarterback when he’s not playing for the Eagles, but he is a little better than Mitch Trubisky. So that’s an upgrade for everyone, including Miller of course.

Despite starting and finishing slowly, Miller had 85 targets last year. If he’s healthy and the Bears offense is even marginally better, 100 targets is as easy booking.

More targets and catches, with some touchdown correction, lines Miller up to be a solid WR2 in fantasy this year. But his ADP is in WR5 range right now, so he’s a top sleeper too.
