2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
I'm only putting both Miller and Sims in one spot because I believe one of them could be worth fantasy consideration this season. Miller was having another resurgent season (47-486-4) before breaking his foot in Week 10. His 7.3 FPts/G was good enough for a near top 10 finish, and despite talk of his potential release, the Bears have yet to do so. This leads me to believe his recovery is going well and that they still have plans for the wayward pro. Working counter to this plan is the signing of free agent Dion Sims from the Dolphins and the pick of Adam Shaheen in the 2nd round of the draft. Sims was underutilized with the Fins, but offers better blocking and more athleticism than Miller and the Bears didn't give him $6-million a year to be a part-time player. Shaheen is from a Division-2 school and while he possess a massive frame (6'7) to go along with speed and quickness, he's a developmental project that is much more attractive in Dynasty league settings.

While neither Miller nor Sims offers much in the way of upside, the tight end position has taken a real hit recently, and some fantasy owners are drafting them later than ever. Keep an eye on the depth chart into training camp and take a flier on the starter if that's the strategy you're going for.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Zach Miller may not be long for Chicago
Bears TE could be pushed by ex-Raven Daniel Brown
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 26, 5:00 pm

Chicgao Bears
Don't be surprised if Daniel Brown pushes the 32-year-old Zach Miller for a job. Miller was sidelined during the offseason program making his way back from the broken right foot suffered in the Week 11 last season. Miller's contract has one year remaining with a base salary of $1.5 million and the issue the Bears have to tackle is if they can take a chance knowing Miller's durability issues. Brown caught 16 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown in the final six games. The Bears turned to him quickly after Miller was injured and Brown averaged 43.5 snaps. (Chicago Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Miller had career-highs with 47 receptions for 486 yards in only 10 games last season, but durability has long been an issue for him. The Bears handed out $10 million of guaranteed money to Dion Sims in free agency and drafted "Baby Gronk" Adam Shaheen in the second round of April's draft, leaving likely only roster spot open for a tight end. Even if Miller sticks, he will not play nearly as big of a role in the offense in 2017 and likely done in Chicago after this season.
