Fantasy Analysis
Week 7 Projections
He continues to be very active as one of Hoyer's favorite check down targets. At some point the Bears need to throw for a touchdown, with Miller being a likely candidate to be the man get into the endzone. Chicago will pass early and often against a depleted Packers secondary on a short week.
Receiving: 6 Receptions, 59 Yards, 1 TD.

Season Projections
Miller's role figures to continue to increase in his second full season with Chicago. The concern with Miller here is if his production down the stretch last season was simply due to being the last man standing, which is quite a surprise given his injury history. Alshon Jeffery was hurt roughly the entire season and Kevin White never even sniffed the field in 2015. Will the healthy return of what figures to be one of the better wide receiver combos in the league cut into his Miller's? It's a tough call but we also have to consider Jay Cutler's track record with the tight end position. Martellus Bennett had great production with Cutler so we have to give Miller the benefit of the doubt that he can slide into Bennett's spot and still remain productive with additional pieces in place. But of even more concern, is Miller's inability to stay healthy. Since coming into the league in 2009, he's yet to play a full 16-game season, even missing the entire 2012, 2013 and 2014 seasons.

Receiving: 15 Receptions, 125 Yards, 1 TD.
