The scoring output for Mills increased in 2021 playing through the midfield, he scored 100pts or more in 72.2% of games. 

Mills is a consideration at Round 1 in season long fantasy providing there are no pre-season setbacks & he his absolutely fit, ownership could be a little underweight considering the injury concerns late in the 2021 season. 

He remains an early selection in single season draft leagues just beyond the high priority options, his ADP may even slide somewhat.
