In 2019, the Bears were expected to make a push for the Super Bowl. However, they never seemed to get into any sort of groove at any point of the season, which resulted in an 8-8 record. This offseason, they’ve brought in Nick Foles to take over the reigns of the offense. So, which player will benefit the most from a Super Bowl-winning signal caller now being in town?
Anthony Miller is coming off two solid seasons in Chicago, posting 85 receptions, 1,079 yards and nine touchdowns. He’s had flashes of brilliance, like his 140-yard game against the Lions in Week 12 of 2019. However, consistency has been his biggest issue, which is common for young players.
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller told @ChiTribKane that he feels like this upcoming season is going to be his “best year yet.”

In 2020, he’ll be the No. 2 receiver, which will give him the opportunity to show that he has the skills to be a great player in this league. Allen Robinson will draw most of the No. 1 corners, which will give Miller good matchups throughout the season. Foles will look for Miller to use his speed to break away from opposing corners and haul in some deep bombs.
Anthony Miller emerged late last season for the #Bears. During weeks 11-15 he had 33 catches 431 yards and 2TDs if you average those games over a 16 game season its 105 catches 1379 yards 6TDs. With the Nick Foles addition this should only be the start of a breakout. *Thread* pic.twitter.com/HFhGR4gAiN

All eyes will be on Foles this fall, as he’s the presumed starter heading into the new campaign. If the Bears have success in 2020, though, Miller will undoubtedly be a huge part of it. Keep your eyes on the young stud.
