2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 54th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, McMillan's entire rookie season was lost after he suffered a torn ACL in the team's preseason opener. The lack of a starting MLB haunted the Dolphins throughout their entire 2017 campaign, and the lack of competition brought in during the offseason suggests confidence that the position remains firmly McMillan's. The athletic 21-year-old should be a key piece of what looks to be a stout Miami front seven. Read Past Outlooks

McMillan complied 105 tackles, one pass defended, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 2018.
ANALYSIS
After losing his entire rookie season to a torn ACL, McMillan came on as a leader in the Dolphins defense in 2018. The middle linebacker position was one of Miami's most notable weaknesses heading into the season, but the 2017 second-round pick's strong play has put any worries at ease. Following up an inconsistent start to the year, McMillan greatly improved during the second half of the season and averaged 7.9 tackles per game from Week 10 to Week 17. McMillan racked up the second-most tackles of any Dolphins player in 2018, trailing only Kiko Alonso, and he'll remain an integral part of the team's plans for the future.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Originally McMillan was expected to open the season as a backup linebacker but the placement of Koa Misi (neck) on season ending injured reserve has made McMillan the favorite to start at OLB from day one. He was selected in the second-round of the 2017 NFL Draft and could be a part an impressive trio of linebackers along with Kiko Alonso and Lawrence Timmons.
