|TE Zach Miller wants big contract|
Reportedly seeking $5 million per year
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Feb 2, 1:45 pm
|here have been some robust pay days for tight ends since the end of the season and while those deals are out of the realm of what Zach Miller could command, the veteran is still seeking a big contract. Miller, who had a breakout second half of the season for the Chicago Bears, is asking for $5 million per year in a new contract, sources with knowledge of the situation told the Tribune. Unless that target figure drops in negotiations, itís difficult to imagine a deal getting done before he becomes an unrestricted free agent in March. (Chicago Tribune)|
FFToday's Take: A veteran, Miller didn't sniff the regular season from 2012-2014 and now wants a sizeable pay increase after seven-week resurgence while Martellus Bennett was hurt. The Bears were rumored to be shopping Bennett last off-season so there is some merit for the club bringing Miller back, but it would likely be at a lower price than Miller and his agent are currently floating.

FFToday's Take: Jeffery battled an illness earlier in the week but is expected to play. The Vikings are middle of the pack in terms of fantasy points allowed to wide receivers but have given up a TD to a wide receiver in the last four games.

FFToday's Take: Bennett has been bothered by a rib injury since Week 11 and hasn't had more than 3 receptions since Week 9. Zach Miller moves back into fantasy relevancy with Robert Housler on the roster for insurance.

Bears TE battling rib injury

FFToday's Take: Bennett has been battling a rib issue and was limited in Tuesday's practice. His absence means Zach Miller will get the start and will be a TE2 consideration against a Packers defense giving up the 8th-most fantasy points to tight ends.
