Heath Miller should feast in Week 5


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:28 pm ET) 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.


Teammate: Heath Miller ready to roll into 2014 season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Heath Miller is looking quick and ready for the regular season, according to fellow Steelers tight end Matt Spaeth. The team opens against visiting Cleveland on Sunday.

Miller was anything but ready in 2013 after sustaining a knee injury the previous December. He missed two games and appeared slow. But Spaeth believes all that has changed.

"Everything about him is better, his overall speed, his burst, coming in and out of breaks," Spaeth told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. "He just looks real good now."

Offensive coordinator Todd Haley agrees.

"Heath is night and day from where he was last year at this time," he said. "He wasn't even ready to go that first game, and it took a while to get him back to where he was close to feeling 100 percent. He's 100 percent ready to go."

Miller managed  58 catches for 593 yards and one touchdown last year after snagging 71 for 816 yards and eight scores in 2012.


Heath Miller little more than decent play in season opener


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Steelers veteran tight end Heath Miller could luck into scoring as many touchdowns this season as he did a year ago. He managed just one in 14 games after scoring eight in 2012. Whether he makes it into the end zone with the ball Sunday against Cleveland is another matter.

Miller managed 58 catches for 593 yards in 2013, incuding seven for 58 yards in two matchups with the Browns. Cleveland linebackers struggled mightily covering receivers last season, but have improved their athleticism, which could make things a bit tougher for Miller, who has generally been held in check by the Browns throughout his career.

Another potential problem Sunday is defensive attention. The Browns could give him plenty due to the lack of viable Steelers receiving threats aside from stud wideout Antonio Brown. Miller could find himself being covered more by defensive backs than linebackers. All of which makes him an iffy Fantasy play. Keep in mind, too, that at age 31 and with nine years in the league, he is on the downside of his career.


Heath Miller looks like old self in preseason tuneup


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Steelers tight end Heath Miller looked like his old self during Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Miller played deep into the third quarter with the first-team offense. He came down with a 27-yard touchdown grab late in the third quarter. He finished five catches for 53 yards and a touchdown, averaging 10.6 yards per grab.

Big Ben says Heath Miller looks 'like the old Heath'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said that tight end Heath Miller looked like his old self now that he's fully practiced this spring. A year ago he was coming back from a torn ACL and didn't practice at all. 

"He has looked healthy right from the get-go, looks kind of like the old Heath," Roethlisberger said via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "One of the practices, he caught a pass about 12 yards downfield and made a move and actually made a guy miss and he finished all the way down the field. That was the Heath Miller we love to see."


Steelers sign Heath Miller to two-year extension


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) The Steelers signed tight end Heath Miller to a two-year extension that lowers his 2014 cap number from $9.5 million to $6.1 million, reports USA Today. Miller received base salaries of $4 million in 2015 and 2016.

Steelers restructure Heath Miller's contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) The Steelers restructured tight end Heath Miller’s contract to create cap space, reports NFL Network. Before the restructuring, Miller carried a cap figure of $9.5 million for 2014.

Terms of the new deal were not immediately available.


Heath Miller ends season with a whimper


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller's disappointing season came to a fitting end in Week 17, as he was held entirely in check in a 20-7 win over the Browns. Miller hauled in the only two passes thrown his way, and finished with just 17 yards for the second week in a row.

Miller never really seemed to be at full speed in his return from knee surgery. He finishes the season with 58 receptions for 593 yards, a far cry from his career year in 2012. He also scored just one touchdown, the lowest total of his career.  


Heath Miller aiming to close season strong


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller hasn't done much recently, as he enters Week 17 against the Browns with just one game with more than 50 yards in his last three.

Miller has plenty of experience against the Browns, and a fair deal of success as well; he has scored five touchdowns in 16 career games, while averaging 39.3 yards per game. He did little in their last matchup, however, as he was held to just 41 yards on five receptions.

After racking up 816 yards and eight touchdowns a year ago, Miller enters Week 17 with just 576 yards and one score. He should be considered a low-end Fantasy option for this matchup. 


Tight end trio helps Steelers defeat Packers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Steelers used three tight ends Sunday at Green Bay and all of them made small contributions to the victory.

The most interesting was a 30-yard grab by David Paulson from Mat McBriar on the first possession of the second half off a fake punt. The catch led to a touchdown that put Pittsburgh ahead.

Another rare contributor as a pass-catcher who played the role of hero was Matt Spaeth, who snagged an 11-yard scoring strike from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger later in that quarter to again put his team up.

Starting tight end Heath Miller pitched in with three receptions for 17 yards.


Heath Miller fine for battle against Packers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) As expected, Steelers tight end Heath Miller has been cleared to play Sunday at Green Bay. He had been deemed probable with a non-injury related issue.

Quartet of Steelers offensive players probable for Packers game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Four Steelers offensive players have been deemed probable to play at Green Bay on Sunday. They are wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (foot), offensive linemen Kelvin Beachum (knee) and Marcus Gilbert (ankle) and tight end Heath Miller (not injury related).

Heath Miller ready to break long scoring slump?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) It's been eight games since Steelers tight end Heath Miller scored a touchdown. In fact, he has just one touchdown through 12 games. He's never tallied less than two touchdowns in a season.

The Steelers are preparing to play the Packers Week 16, which presents a good chance for Miller to snap his scoring slump. Tight ends have scored three times in the last four games and have totaled eight touchdowns in 14 games against Green Bay. 

Tight ends are averaging 55.5 receiving yards and 8.3 Fantasy points per week against Green Bay. Vernon Davis, Dallas Clark, Jordan Cameron and Jason Witten have all had at least 10 Fantasy points against the Packers.

Although Miller has a decent matchup Week 16, he's still shaping up to be more of a No. 2 Fantasy tight end. Miller hasn't had more than eight Fantasy points in any game this season and you just can't expect a huge performance out of him at this point.


Heath Miller's scoring drought continues


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller was held out of the end zone for the eighth straight game Week 15. He caught all four of his targets for 35 yards in the win over Cincinnati.

Stuck on one touchdown this season, Miller visits the Packers in Week 16.


Heath Miller doesn't usually hurt Bengals


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller plays the Bengals for the 16th time Sunday night. Over 15 previous meetings, Miller is averaging 3.3 catches for 31.5 yards with three touchdowns. 

Miller was still rehabbing his knee when the teams played Week 2 in Cincinnati. He enters Week 15 on a four-game run in which he's caught 24 balls for 250 yards. On the down side, Miller hasn't scored since Week 7.

The Bengals allow the 9th-fewest Fantasy points (6.5 per game) to tight ends. Consider Miller a borderline TE1 in Week 15.


Heath Miller's scoreless streak reaches seven games


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller didn't do much Sunday, in a 34-28 loss to the Dolphins in Week 14.

Miller was targeted just four times in the passing game, hauling in three of them for 56 yards. He had a long reception of 31 yards, and was held out of the end zone for the seventh game in a row.

Miller's production has been decent in his return from a knee injury, but he is in danger of establishing a new career-low in touchdowns. Heading into Week 15 against the Bengals, Miller has just one touchdown, to go with 49 receptions for 524 yards in 11 games.
