Anthony Miller (WR, CHI) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper


BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~120 Overall

Current ADP: ~135

It is rare that you can get a late-round wide receiver with the talent to jump to the top of his team's depth chart. The player who currently sits atop the Chicago Bears pecking order, Allen Robinson, is three years removed from his "breakout season" without having surpassed 1,000 receiving yards in that span, thanks in large part to injuries and ineffective quarterback play at times.  In a similar vein, Taylor Gabriel had a mixed season in his first year with Chicago but is not the threat to score touchdowns that the team might hope for, having scored just three touchdowns in his last two seasons.

Miller is a diverse wide receiver that is capable of working all three levels of the passing game. Although he dealt with an injury for a chunk of the season and saw just 15 targets through the first six weeks of the season, his volume saw an uptick over the next four games to the tune of 26 targets. With an insane seven touchdowns as the third-string wideout during his rookie season and a reasonably solid 61% catch rate as a rookie, Miller figures to have a bigger role entering 2019. The only issue is his current nagging ankle injury. However, this may only serve to push his value lower, and present a greater opportunity for his prospective fantasy owners.
