3. Anthony Miller

Anthony Miller is officially on pace for 54 receptions for 524 yards in his third season with the Chicago Bears. As a rookie, he had 33 catches for 423 yards, and the following year was 52 catches for 656 yards.

Miller may see a slight uptick in catches and a decrease in yards from his second season. Overall, he is set to average 46 catches for 534 yards per year.  His number never really improved much from his rookie year through year three.

At this point is fair to accept that Miller is what he is. Fans saw a breakout coming this year. With Taylor Gabriel gone, Miller had a chance to propel into the number two role and take over as a second option.

However, that role has gone to rookie Darnell Mooney and Miller has been in the same spot since his rookie season. An inconsistent slot receiver.

Mooney is clearly trusted over him and will continue to play over him. It is hard to see a second-half breakout coming from Miller. At this point, fans should understand that this is who he is.
