No. 7 Anthony Miller vs Green Bay
Anthony Miller is low on this list and maybe he shouldn’t be. Miller was a pick that excited so many people the moment he was taken. The Bears traded up to snag Miller in the 2nd round of the draft this year and after revamping the entire wide receiver core, Miller has had a great camp and a good preseason and finds himself primed for a surprising rookie campaign.
Allen Robinson will draw a lot of eyes. So will Cohen. Taylor Gabriel, who we mention at No. 9, is the vertical threat that stretches the field and can leave big gaps for Miller. Miller’s size is enough to go with great hands and excellent positioning that make him a tough cover at a potential 3/slot role to start this season.
As sleepers go, Miller isn’t fully boom or bust but a play in Week one is an investment into not only what he can do against a still in flux Packers secondary but what his presence brings to an excited Bears team.
