Anthony Miller, WR, Chicago Bears
Miller had nine receptions (on 15 targets) for 118 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, as he has now scored in back-to-back games with at least nine targets (11 or more three times) in four of his last five (more than 11 fantasy points; full-point PPR, in all five). Even with a tough matchup coming in Week 16, it’s impossible to ignore what the second-year man out of Memphis is doing as Mitch Trubisky has played better.
The Kansas City Chiefs entered Week 15 allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers (Yahoo! 0.5-point PPR scoring), and Sunday’s snow game against the Denver Broncos will likely keep them in that spot holding the position in check.
Miller is becoming virtually matchup proof in certain contexts. The volume he’s getting, and a game script that stands to favor passing next Sunday night, lines him up to be no less than a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 in 12-team leagues.
