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.

Bears | Zach Miller returns to Chicago

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 15:36:28 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller agreed to a two-year, $6 million deal to return to the Bears Monday, March 14, according to a source. He can make $2 million more in incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Miller posted a career-high 34 catches for 439 yards and five touchdowns in his first season with Chicago, but most of that production came with Martellus Bennett sidelined with injury. Bennett could be traded this offseason, which would make Miller more fantasy relevant, but still probably as nothing more than a fantasy backup.

Rams | Zach Miller to meet with Rams

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 10:17:28 -0700

Free-agent TE Zach Miller (Bears) is scheduled to meet with the Los Angeles Rams Sunday, March 13, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Miller is coming off a solid 2015 season and probably would have a good chance to start for the Rams if he signed with them. The Rams have questions at the quarterback position, which would make Miller a No. 2 tight end for fantasy owners if he plays for Los Angeles.

Bears | Shea McClellin, Zach Miller to test market

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 11:23:28 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent LB Shea McClellin and TE Zach Miller are expected to test the free-agent market this offseason, but general manager Ryan Pace indicated they could both be re-signed at the right price.

Fantasy Tip: Miller had a nice run as the starting tight end when both Martellus Bennett and Alshon Jeffery were banged up in 2015. But unless an injury opens up more time like it did last year, Miller doesn't carry much fantasy value at all with Chicago.

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.
