One catch in Week 18 loss

Miller secured one of two targets for eight yards in the Buccaneers' 30-17 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

Analysis: Miller logged 21 snaps from scrimmage, his highest tally since Week 9, as the Buccaneers pulled most starters before halftime. However, while the speedster recorded his first reception since Week 13, Miller still saw minimal action and is likely to be a virtual non-factor on offense during next Monday night's wild-card matchup against the Cowboys.

Limited to special teams Week 17

Miller did not see any snaps on offense during the Buccaneers' 30-24 win over the Panthers in Week 17.

Analysis: The fourth-year speedster hasn't recorded a catch since Week 13 and has logged just four targets overall since that contest, but Week 17 marked his first game with active status and without a snap from scrimmage all season. However, Miller could bounce right back with a solid allotment of playing time in Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Falcons, considering the Buccaneers are expected to afford a slew of reserves substantial snaps.

Blanked on stat sheet Sunday

Miller failed to bring in his only target over four snaps on offense during the Buccaneers' 19-16 win overtime win against the Cardinals on Sunday night.

Analysis: Miller's minimal role was par for the course during the stretch run of the season, as the speedster has seen 15 snaps or fewer in the last six games while recording just three receptions for 32 yards in that span. With the Buccaneers' top four wide receivers available, Miller projects for a minimal role over the remaining two games of the regular season.

Fails to bring in only target

Miller failed to bring in his only target during the Buccaneers' 35-7 loss to the 49ers in Week 14.

Analysis: Miller logged 11 snaps on offense (17 percent) but failed to crack the stat sheet for the second time in the last three games. Miller is unlikely to have any relevance during the fantasy postseason unless multiple injuries strike in front of him at receiver.

Minimal role in Week 13

Miller secured one of two targets for seven yards in the Buccaneers' 17-16 win over the Saints on Monday night.

Analysis: Miller was in on just 15 snaps, which represented a 19 percent share of the Buccaneers' offensive plays. The speedy reserve wideout is likely due for similar low-volume games the rest of the way as long as Julio Jones and Russell Gage are both healthy in front of him as the No. 3 and No. 4 receivers ahead of him.

Limited use Week 12

Miller went without a target while playing two of the Buccaneers' 66 snaps on offense in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Browns.

Analysis: Russell Gage (hamstring) was inactive for the fourth straight game due to injury, but since all of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones have been available during that stretch, Miller hasn't been able to carve out much of a role on offense. Whenever Gage is cleared to return to game action, Miller and/or Breshad Perriman could end up being healthy inactives.

Pair of receptions in Week 10 win

Miller brought in both targets for 25 yards in the Buccaneers' 21-16 win over the Seahawks on Sunday.

Analysis: Miller continued to hold down a serviceable role in the offense as the clear No. 4 receiver, and although he logged four fewer snaps (14) than Breshad Perriman, he was the only one of the two to see any targets. Miller has re-emerged to an extent in the offense with four consecutive multi-catch games, but his upside is still significantly limited as long as the top trio of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones are healthy in front of him.

Season-high seven catches

Miller caught seven of eight targets for 53 yards in Sunday's 16-13 win over the Rams.

Analysis: The fourth-year receiver posted his best numbers of the season as Russell Gage (hamstring) was inactive and Julio Jones ineffective. Miller's role in a deep receiving corps is erratic and largely dependent on the health of the players ahead of him on the depth chart, making him a risky option in Week 10 as the Buccaneers head to Germany to face the Seahawks.

Nov 6, 2022 7:24 PM EST

Another two catches Thursday

Miller brought in both targets for 13 yards in the Buccaneers' 27-22 loss to the Ravens on Thursday night.

Analysis: Miller recorded his second straight two-catch effort, which, while not exactly noteworthy, at least gives him a semblance of relevance in a struggling offense. Miller has four multi-catch efforts overall this season and logged 19 snaps Thursday night, and while he might be a slightly better fringe Buccaneers fantasy option than Breshad Perriman, he's still unlikely to gain any true relevance unless multiple injuries strike the receiving corps.

Reemerges with four catches

Miller secured four of seven targets for 35 yards in the Buccaneers' 21-15 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Analysis: Miller logged his second-highest snap tally of the season (35) and made good use of it, posting season highs in receptions and receiving yards. The fourth-year speedster's prospects of even making the final roster appeared somewhat grip this preseason, but Miller has contributed in two of the three games he's been called upon thus far with a combined 7-69 line on 15 targets between Week 2 and Sunday. If Breshad Perriman (knee/hamstring) remains sidelined in Week 6 against the Steelers, Miller could see another solid complementary role in that contest.

Inactive against Kansas City

Miller (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against Kansas City.

Analysis: Miller was on the field for 52 offensive snaps last week since the Buccaneers were down several pass catchers, but he secured just one of five targets for four yards. He'll be a healthy scratch Sunday night with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones back in action.

Does little with opportunity

Miller brought in just one of five targets for four yards in the Buccaneers' 14-12 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Analysis: Miller played a robust 52 snaps from scrimmage with the Buccaneers down three receivers, yet as his final line implies, he largely squandered the opportunity. The Bowling Green product certainly brings plenty of speed to the table, but with just a 9-76 line on 22 targets over his last 11 regular-season games overall, Miller is unlikely to make any sort of impact whenever the team's receiving corps is even approximating full health.

Sep 26, 2022 9:07 PM EST

Back to full practice

Miller (calf) practiced fully Thursday.

Analysis: The Buccaneers' receiving corps seems poised to be depleted again Sunday versus the Packers, as Mike Evans will sit out due to a one-game suspension, Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) have yet to practice this week, and Russell Gage (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (knee) were limited again Thursday. Miller didn't take advantage of his eight targets Week 2 at New Orleans, turning them into three catches for 34 yards while taking one carry for eight yards. Still, he could earn a decent enough snap share to make an impact in the box score this weekend.

Sep 22, 2022 2:08 PM EST

Bothered by calf

Miller (calf) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

Analysis: Russell Gage (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (knee) also were limited, while Julio Jones (knee) and Chris Godwin (hamstring) didn't practice and Mike Evans is suspended for one week. It thus remains unclear who will see targets from Tom Brady this Sunday against Green Bay, but the early outlook hints at Miller being involved even if he has a minor calf injury.

Three grabs in Week 2 win

Miller brought in three of eight targets for 34 yards and rushed once for eight yards in the Buccaneers' 20-10 win over the Saints on Sunday.

Analysis: Miller garnered active status with both Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee) sidelined, and the speedster played a total of 29 snaps from scrimmage (43 percent). While there wasn't much efficiency evident in Miller's line, his numbers qualify as serviceable on a day when Tom Brady threw for only 190 yards. The Bowling Green product could be back to inactive status for the Week 3 home showdown with the Packers if either or both Godwin or Jones are available for that contest, however.

Sep 19, 2022 8:16 AM EST

Inactive Sunday

Miller is inactive for Sunday night's season opener against the Cowboys.

Analysis: Miller is the odd man out in Week 1, with Tampa Bay's top wide receivers Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Russell Gage and Julio Jones all in uniform Sunday night. He's off the fantasy radar until or unless injuries hit the aforementioned quartet.

Sep 11, 2022 4:12 PM EST

Surprisingly makes final roster

Miller made the Buccaneers' initial 53-man roster over Tyler Johnson, the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Johnson had the far better preseason showing than Miller, but ultimately, the fourth-year pro from Bowling Green survived final cuts while the former has already been claimed by the Texans off waivers. Miller currently slots in as the No. 6 receiver and a reserve option at returner, but it's certainly conceivable he could play at least a minor role in the offense over the course of the season given his speed and past body of work with Tom Brady.

Falls flat in preseason finale

Miller brought in one of two targets for minus-1 yard in the Buccaneers' 27-10 preseason loss to the Colts on Saturday night.

Analysis: Miller logged 17 snaps from scrimmage overall, but as his final line indicates, he didn't do anything to help his already dwindling case for a roster spot. Miller certainly has his fair share of favorable history with the Buccaneers, but considering the team's depth at receiver and the emergence of Tyler Johnson along with some other young wideouts may spell the end of the line for the Bowling Green product.

Aug 28, 2022 12:27 PM EST

Trending toward losing spot?

Miller, who secured one of three targets for 15 yards in the Buccaneers' 13-3 preseason loss to the Titans on Saturday night, may be in danger of losing his roster spot, Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Analysis: The speedy Bowling Green product was shut out in the exhibition opener and then not only did little Saturday night, but also squandered a key opportunity. Knight notes Miller didn't hang on to what may have been Kyle Trask's best throw of the night, a deep pass down the right sideline late in the second quarter. The fourth-year pro's one grab did come on a 3rd-and-6 situation, but with undrafted free agent Deven Thompkins putting together another solid effort Saturday and also capable of filling a return role, Miller's chances of making the final 53-man roster may be dwindling.

Aug 21, 2022 1:39 PM EST

Empty stat line in opener

Miller failed to bring in his only target in the Buccaneers' 26-24 preseason loss to the Dolphins on Saturday night.

Analysis: Miller notably came up empty on a night where several of his fellow competitors for a depth receiver role put some strong play on film. The Bowling Green product does have a respectable body of work from prior seasons to rely on to an extent, but he'll certainly need to show a lot more in his ongoing bid for a roster spot during next Saturday night's road preseason battle against the Titans.
