Signed prior to last season to a four-year, 41 million extension, Shepard picked up a few of the targets that had gone to Odell Beckham in prior seasons, averaging more than eight targets per game for the first time in his career. The expectation is that he will continue to work primarily out of the slot in 2020 despite the slot also being the preferred position of Golden Tate.When Miller entered December of his rookie season with 29 receptions for 398 yards and five touchdowns over his first 10 NFL games, it seemed as if he was on track to become a key part of Chicago's passing game. He then ended up catching eight passes for 53 yards over his next nine games through the end of last September. His increased usage later in the year was encouraging.
Elisha Twerski

 When Taylor Gabriel went down last year, Miller posted a 16-game pace of 80 receptions for 1,001 yards and 5 tuddies. That line would've made him the WR25 last season.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Sterling Shepard tied for 17th most in the NFL for targets per game in 2019 with 8.3. The Athletic's Dan Duggan said Giants WR Sterling Shepard has dominated opposing cornerbacks in training camp, establishing himself as the clear No. 1 wideout. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Sterling Shepard went into 2019 as the clear cut Giants WR1 but he failed to perform, missing half the season with injury and only performing against mediocre opposition. Now with Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton to compete with, it's hard to see Shepard providing weekly security in an offense expected to run more often this year under Joe Judge. He's a low upside mid-round pick.Anthony Miller's enigmatic start to his NFL career continued in 2019 with two massive 100+ yard explosions and a heap of underwhelming single-digit efforts. There's no doubt his continued shoulder issues remain an issue but after another off-season surgery, it's very possible Miller has another slow start. In an offense that surely must be better under Nick Foles, there's a lot of hope Miller will break out in his third season, just know you may have to wait it out a little.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
In a season where he was dealing with injuries and a rookie quarterback, Shepard still posted WR2 or better numbers in 40 percent of his games, which ranked 33rd among wide receivers. Now, to be fair, the offense has changed, but it doesn't appear the new regime is very fond of Evan Engram, as evidenced by putting him on the trade block during the NFL Draft. Golden Tate is aging, and while Darius Slayton did flash at times, it was a relatively small sample size. It shouldn't shock anyone to see Shepard get 100-plus targets in 2020 and finish as a WR3, though you do have to wonder what his upside actually is with so many mouths to feed.Despite playing with Mitch Trubisky, Miller has now seen 139 targets in his first two seasons, compiling 85 receptions for 1,079 yards and nine touchdowns. By comparison, Robert Woods saw 139 targets last year, finishing with 90 receptions for 1,134 yards and two touchdowns. But for whatever reason, Matt Nagy has chosen not to let Miller flourish in the Bears offense. There were just seven games he saw more than three targets. In those seven games, he totaled 42 receptions for 547 yards, and two touchdowns. With Taylor Gabriel gone, it's very possible that Miller becomes more of a staple in the offense. He's best viewed as a WR4/5-type option with WR3 upside.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
When healthy, Shepard has been a solid WR3 but the problem is, he's rarely healthy. Now with the emergence of Darius Slayton and the presence of veteran Golden Tate, I don't like Shepard's chances of living up to his ADP.After a strong rookie season in which Miller scored seven TDs, he regressed in year two scoring only two times and never seeming to get on the same page as QB Mitchell Trubisky. He still seems to be the WR2 in Chicago which is a plus but it's not like the Bears passing offense is one you're dying to be a part of. I see Miller as a WR4 with a sliver of upside depending on who starts at QB for the Bears.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 If you take Miller's final six games of the fantasy season, he had 34 catches for 433 yards, which prorates out to a 90-catch, 1154-yard line over a full season. Although he only caught two touchdown passes last year, he caught seven the prior season, so he's due for some positive regression. He's coming off shoulder surgery again, but so long as he's healthy, and especially if Nick Foles (who loves to target slot receivers) wins the starting quarterback job, Miller should be in for a fine year.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
When Shepard's on the field, he's a target vacuum. However, he's rarely been on the field the past couple seasons and he is playing in one of the deepest receiving corps in the entire league. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley are all going to command targets in this offense, which limits each player's ceiling. If one of the other options misses time, Shepard can be extremely fantasy relevant, but it's impossible to project that going into the season. Shepard's a risky pick this year.Miller was fantastic his rookie season in Chicago, but took a big step backwards last year with the offensive struggles. Additionally, Miller has struggled with a shoulder issue for quite some time now that kept recurring last season. This season though, Miller should get back on track and should easily be second on this team in targets. The offense can only go up from where it was last year and Miller should see plenty of scoring opportunities as well. He's a great pick in the mid-rounds of your draft.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
4 years in and we have a yards per reception of 11.6. That average is a lot of work just to go over 1000 yards. Combine that with his lack of TDs, and worrisome concussion history, and you get a perfectly boring WR that needs 90+ receptions to be fantasy relevant.Going into his age 26 season, just a year younger than teammate Allen Robinson. We have the assumption that Nagy would like to use his TE more. Burton had 94 targets in 2018 but hasn't been able to stay on the field. Jimmy Graham comes in, along with rookie Cole Kmet. Miller should still have a clear path to targets if he can take it. Has struggled with shoulder injuries, having surgeries each year, his route running is good.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
 Flashed breakout upside, maybe the switch to Foles will be the Surrounding Talent injection he needs to fully realize the ceiling
