3. Anthony Miller
Allen Robinson has been the most consistent receiver on the Bears serving as Trubisky’s safety blanket. While Robinson is an elite possession receiver, he sees very minimal downfield targets due to his fit in the offense.
This is where Anthony Miller steps in. Miller’s route running has been picturesque and he creates so much separation on his routes. It hasn’t truly been demonstrated yet but Miller is dangerous once given room to run after the catch. The last two weeks, Taylor Gabriel has excelled at generating downfield targets. Gabriel is going to garner more attention going further due to his speed, which will open up the field for Miller to make more game-breaking plays.
If Miller can establish himself as another dangerous option for Trubisky, the productivity of the offense has a chance to mirror the production of the defense. The more weapons this young quarterback can rely on, the more confident he’ll be going down the stretch.
Trubisky made some big throws late in the game against Miami, and that confidence starts with Anthony Miller and the rest of the blossoming receiving corp.
