RB - WAS - OUT
Week 17 Outlook
The Washington Football Team signed RB Lamar Miller off the Bears' practice squad.
Miller played for the Bears in Week 10 and caught two passes for six yards. The acquisition by Washington likely means that Antonio Gibson won't play in Week 15. Miller can be left on waiver wires in fantasy leagues of all sizes.
Lamar Miller caught both of his targets for six yards in the Bears’ 19-13 loss to the Vikings on MNF.
Miller made his 2020 debut in uninspiring fashion, as he caught two passes but didn't record a single carry out of the backfield. Even with David Montgomery out of action, Miller isn't a recommended fantasy option. The Bears are on bye in Week 11.
The Bears promoted RB Lamar Miller to their active roster prior to Monday Night Football in Week 10 against the Vikings.
This move was expected with David Montgomery (concussion) ruled out for Monday night. Miller will form an underwhelming committee with Ryan Nall and Cordarrelle Patterson against Minnesota. Obviously this is a situation to avoid for fantasy purposes.
Lamar Miller is being activated and should play in Monday's game against the Vikings.
Miller hasn't played since suffering an ACL tear in 2018. He was signed to the Bears after Tarik Cohen went down with an ACL injury and now, with David Montgomery out, will play on the active roster for the first time in almost two years. Cordarrelle Patterson and Ryan Nall also should also handle some backfield duties in this matchup, making a mess of this situation. All three options should be considered low-end RB3's that likely require a touchdown to be relevant.
Free agent RB Lamar Miller is expected to sign with the Chicago Bears as a member of their practice squad.
In the wake of Tarik Cohen tearing his ACL last week, the Bears are bringing in the veteran to bolster up their backfield. Miller will initially join the practice squad in hopes of playing for Chicago on Sundays moving forward. For now, it’ll be a backfield led by David Montgomery, with Cordarrelle Patterson operating as a change-of-pace guy.
