Trio of Steelers make strong contributions to Sunday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) As usual, no Steelers receiver could match what Antonio Brown produced Sunday against Atlanta. But a trio certainly helped the team to victory.

The best of the bunch were tight end Heath Miller, whose 26-yard snag late in the third quarter helped him finish with 68 yards on four receptions, and wideout Markus Wheaton, who made good on all five targets for 66 yards. Martavis Bryant pitched in with three catches for 31 yards.


Steelers list Ike Taylor as doubtful, James Harrison questionable


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) The Steelers have listed corner back Ike Taylor as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Taylor, who left last week's game against the Bengals with a forearm injury, was unable to practice most of the week. 

Linebacker James Harrison , who missed last week's game with a knee injury, is questionable. 

The following players are probable for Pittsburgh: Ben Roethlisberger, William Gay, Marcus Gilbert, Cameron Heyward, Heath Miller and Maurkice Pouncey.


Steelers' Heath Miller scores in Week 14 against Bengals


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Steelers tight end Heath Miller had just one catch in Sunday's win over the Bengals, but it was a big one. On the goal line in the second quarter, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger faked the hand off to running back Le'Veon Bell, rolled to his right and found Miller open for the touchdown.

It was Miller's first touchdown since Week 8 against the Colts. He now has 583 yards and three touchdowns on the year. 

The Steelers will face the Falcons in Week 15.


Polamalu, Taylor, Shazier among Steelers' probables for Week 14


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) Steelers tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) was unable to practice and received the thumbs-down for Week 14 against Cincinnati. Gilbert was the only player on Pittsburgh's final injury report ruled out for Sunday. Linebacker James Harrison (knee) also missed practice all week and is unlikely to play. He was ruled as doubtful.

Nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder) was the only player on the report designated as questionable, while cornerback Cortez Allen (thumb), cornerback Brice McCain (hamstring), tight end Heath Miller (rest), safety Troy Polamalu (illness), quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (rest), linebacker Ryan Shazier (ankle) and cornerback Ike Taylor (shoulder) were deemed probable.


Steelers' Heath Miller posts 8-82 line in loss


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Steelers tight end Heath Miller led the team in targets Sunday with 14, catching eight of them for 82 yards in the loss to the Saints. It's the most targets Miller has seen in a game all season and the most he has had since Week 4 against the Bucs when he had 11. 

Keeping Miller involved all day, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger tried to find Miller in the end zone, he tripped up trying to reach out for the catch. 

Miller gets Cincinnati next week. 


Heath Miller's consistency shows on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) With five catches for 71 yards Monday, Steelers tight end Heath Miller went over 500 receiving yards for the eighth straight year. Receiver Hines Ward is the only other player in franchise history with such a streak; he did it 12 straight years (1999-2010).

Miller caught all his targets and produced his third-highest yardage output this season. He's on a bye Week 12.


Bit players do only a bit for Steelers in Sunday defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) A poor performance by the Steelers offense Sunday filtered down to their bit players. Among them was running back LeGarrette Blount, whose five carries amounted to zero yards.

Markus Wheaton did catch four passes for 41 yards while tight end Heath Miller, who was blanked in the first half, added three for 29 yards. Lance Moore caught two for 28 yards.

One and all will try to do better when Pittsburgh plays at Tennessee next Monday night.


Steelers probables active Week 9 vs. Ravens


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) All nine Steelers players listed as probable to play in Week 9 are active for Sunday's game against the Ravens, including tight ends Heath Miller (not injury related) and Matt Spaeth (hamstring).

Also active for the Steelers are tackle Marcus Gilbert (concussion), defensive linemen Brett Keisel (not injury related) and Steve McLendon (shoulder), linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee) and safeties Troy Polamalu (not injury related), Mike Mitchell (groin) and Shamarko Thomas (hamstring).


Steelers head into Week 9 relatively healthy


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) The Steelers listed 10 players on their final injury report leading up to Week 9 against the Ravens.
Ike Taylor (forearm) and Ross Ventrone (hamstring) were both ruled out.

Marcus Gilbert (concussion), Mike Mitchell (groin), Ryan Shazier (knee), Matt Spaeth (hamstring), Shamarko Thomas (hamstring), Brett Keisel (rest), Heath Miller (rest) and Troy Polamalu (rest) were all deemed probable for Sunday.


Heath Miller benefits from record-setting day


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) OK, so Steelers tight end Heath Miller's 49-yard reception -- his longest in eight years -- was pretty special, but the biggest reason for his seven catches for 112 yards Week 8 against Indianapolis was that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for a franchise record 522 yards. Somebody had be on the receiving end of that performance, and Miller regularly made himself available over the middle.

He wasn't the only beneficiary. Antonio Brown was as productive as ever with 133 yards. Martavis Bryant had 83, and Markus Wheaton and Le'Veon Bell both had 56.

Now, Miller was certainly more involved in the passing game than he was in Weeks 6 and 7, when he had a combined three catches for 32 yards, but this performance is nowhere near the baseline for him. In fact, his outlook doesn't really change at all in Fantasy. He's good for about four or five catches most weeks, but probably not for much more than 50 yards. As a bye-week replacement, he's fine, but he doesn't offer much beyond that unless Roethlisberger starts throwing for 500 yards every week.


Steelers tight end Miller has deja vu game in Week 8


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The last time Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger exceeded 500 yards passing was Dec. 20, 2009 against Green Bay. That was also the last time tight end Heath Miller had more than 100 yards receiving.

It happened again Sunday. Roethlisberger threw for 522 yards with 112 going to Miller on seven catches. Among them was a 49-yarder to the Colts 4 that led to a touchdown. Another was an 11-yard score with five minutes left that clinched the victory.

Miller will try to hook up with Roethlisberger in the end zone again in Week 9 against the Ravens.


Steelers get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) The Steelers got a variety of offensive contributions in their 30-23 win over the Texans. Among them, running back LeGarrette Blount ran seven times for 9 yards and caught an 8-yard pass. Running back Dri Archer carried twice for 7 yards.

Tight end Heath Miller secured his only target for 13 yards, while wideout Markus Wheaton was targeted twice without a catch. They'll all play the Colts in Week 8.


Several Steelers pitch in offensively in defeat to Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Tight end Heath Miller and backup running back LeGarrette Blount were the two most noteworthy minor contributors to the Sunday loss for the Steelers in Cleveland.

Miller managed just two receptions for 19 yards after being blanked in the first half. Blount rushed for 27 yards on eight carries.

Also making their mark were Dri Archer, who ran for 24 yards on three attempts, and wideout Justin Brown, who caught two passes for nine yards.


Steelers release injury report for Week 6 at Cleveland


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) The Steelers unveiled their injury report for Week 6 at Cleveland, and it's pretty cut and dry. Out of seven players listed on the report, four of them have been ruled probable for Sunday. The other three were ruled out for the game.

Safety Shamarko Thomas (hamstring), cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm) and linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee) were labeled out for Sunday.

Safeties Troy Polamalu and Mike Mitchell, tight end Heath Miller and Brett Keisel were all deemed probable despite receiving a rest day on Wednesday. Polamalu was the only player out of the group to miss back-to-back days of practice before returning for Friday's session.


Heath Miller finishes with less than 50 yards in Week 5 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Steelers tight end Heath Miller finished with 46 receiving yards on three catches during a 17-9 win Week 5 at Jacksonville. He was targeted four times and his longest reception went 27 yards.

Sunday was the third time in five games Miller had less than 50 receiving yards. The Steelers are back in action Week 6 at Cleveland.


Heath Miller should feast in Week 5


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) The Jaguars have proven nearly incapable of slowing down tight ends this season, a good sign for any Heath Miller owners heading into the Steelers' Week 5 matchup.  

Miller is coming off his best performance of the season, and should be able to keep rolling this Sunday. The Jaguars gave up 52 Fantasy points to tight ends through the first three games, though they did hold Antonio Gates to just three receptions for 30 yards in Week 4.

The Steelers should be able to light the Jaguars up through the air, and Miller should be a big part of that. With this kind of matchup on the way, Miller should be active in all Fantasy formats for Week 5. 


Heath Miller's 10 grabs a sign of things to come?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) Steelers tight end Heath Miller certainly made his presence known Week 4 against Tampa Bay, catching 10 passes for 85 yards and a touchdown. But where did it come from, and why should we believe it will continue?

Those are the questions I'm asking myself today, and I don't have many answers. We've seen Miller play the role of safety valve for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger before -- he had a 10-catch game last year as well -- but it hasn't been regular enough for me to put any stock into it. And while Roethlisberger threw for 314 yards in this game, a marked improvement over the previous two, he threw for 365 in Week 1, when Miller had his worst game of the season with three catches for 26 yards.

I'd rather not get sucked into a guessing game with him. He's fine as a bye-week replacement or in leagues that require more than one tight end, but otherwise, I'm leaving him be.


Heath Miller grabs career-best 10 passes in Sunday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Steelers tight end Heath Miller had done little heading into Week 4, but he did plenty Sunday against the Buccaneers.

Miller broke loose in the second half for five catches for 59 yards, including a five-yard pop over the middle for a touchdown that appeared nearly the rest of the way to have given his team the lead for good. He finished with a career-high 10 receptions for 85 yards and the score.

He will try to keep up the good work when the Steelers visit Jacksonville in Week 5.


Steelers strong physically for game against Buccaneers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Cornerback Ike Taylor and linebacker Ryan Shazier are out, but the Steelers are otherwise in good shape for their Sunday clash against visiting Tampa Bay. Only one other player on their Friday injury report has been designated any worse than probable. That is guard Ramon Foster (ankle), who is questionable.

The probables are running back Dri Archer (ankle) and wideout Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle). Standouts such as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, tight end Heath Miller, safety Troy Polamalu and defensive end Brett Keisel are all probable with non-injury related issues.


Heath Miller more involved Week 3


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Steelers tight end Heath Miller caught four of five targets for 51 yards in the 37-19 win in Carolina. Miller, who had a 30-yard grab, had amassed just 61 receiving yards in the first two games.

He'll take on the Buccaneers in Week 4.


Steelers issue injury report for Week 3


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Steelers have issued their injury report for their Sunday night game at Carolina. None of their players have been ruled out.

Running back Dri Archer (ankle) is doubtful while guard Ramon Foster (ankle) is questionable. Those listed as probable are defensive end Brett Keisel (not injury related), wide receivers Martavis Bryant (shoulder) and Lance Moore (groin), tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder) and safety Troy Polamalu (not injury related).


Sit Heath Miller in Week 3


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) Like Kyle Rudolph, we're waiting and still anticipating a quality season for Heath Miller.

But he's been dreadful for Fantasy owners thus far with three Fantasy points combined against the Browns and Ravens.

The Panthers haven't allowed multiple passing touchdowns in their past 10 home games. So if Ben Roethlisberger connects with Antonio Brown or Markus Wheaton, Miller could be in trouble.

It does help his cause that Carolina allowed nine touchdowns to opposing tight ends last season, but until Miller straightens out his production we can't recommend him in the majority of leagues.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Heath Miller catches four balls


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Steelers tight end Heath Miller caught four passes Thursday against the Ravens.

Miller received seven targets during the game, gaining 35 yards. He acted as Ben Roethlisberger's checkdown option throughout most of the contest. Miller was also responsible for a turnover, losing a fumble during the outing. 

Miller will take on the Panthers Week 3. 


Stud Steelers ready to go Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) The Steelers will go into Week 2 with all of their stud offensive players. 

A number of important players entered the week listed as probable on the injury report. Nearly all of them are active Week 2 against the Steelers. Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Heath Miller, Ben Roethlisberger, Cody Wallace and Markus Wheaton were all cleared to play. While they were all on the injury report, only Wallace was dealing with an injury. The rest missed practice for non-injury reasons. 

On defense, the Steelers will have Brett Keisel, Steve McLendon, Troy Polamalu, Ike Taylor, Shamarko Thomas and Vince Williams. Wallace was dealing with an ankle issue, but the rest were listed for non-injury reasons. 


Several Steelers provide help in Sunday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Second-year wide receiver Justin Brown led a group of Steelers that made small contributions to their harrowing win over Cleveland on Sunday.

Brown caught three passes for 38 yards. He was backed up by tight end Heath Miller, who added three receptions for 26 yards. Cornerback Antwon Blake gained 25 yards on a catch off a fake punt while running back Dri Archer added one carry for four yards.

Pittsburgh plays at Baltimore on Thursday night.
