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. 


Heath Miller looking to end scoreless streak


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller enters Sunday's game against the Dolphins having scored just one touchdown this season, all the way back in Week 7 against the Ravens. Can he snap his slide in Week 14 against Miami?

The Dolphins have struggled against tight ends this season, especially when it comes to keeping them out of the end zone. Two of the team's last three opponents have had tight ends score, and the position has found the end zone eight times against Miami, the fifth-highest total in the league. 

Opposing tight ends are racking up 10.0 Fantasy points per game against Miami's defense; only two defenses have been worse this season. Fantasy owners looking for a player with upside for Week 14 could do worse than Miller. 


Heath Miller falls just short of score in Week 13


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller had a strong performance Thursday, but had a touchdown called back due to replay review in a 22-20 loss to the Ravens in Week 13.

Miller appeared to score a 20-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, but was ruled to have been taken down at the 1 yard line after review. That ruling extended his scoreless streak to six games, though he did finish with a season-high eight catches for 86 yards.

Miller has been his usually dependable self after recovering from knee surgery, but he has found the end zone just once, after scoring eight times a year ago. He will try to end his scoring drought in Week 14 against the Dolphins. 


No issues for Heath Miller Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller was listed on the injury report for Week 13 against the Ravens, but there was never any question as to his availability in Thursday's game. Miller is active and in uniform for the game, as his listing was not related to any injury. 

Steelers offense healthy with Ravens game on horizon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Only ruled-out defensive tackle Steve McLendon (ankle) and doubtful linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf) will probably not play for the Steelers in Baltimore on Thursday night. All the other players on their injury report are listed as probable.

They are tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle), defensive end Brett Keisel (foot), tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), safety Troy Polamalu (not injury related), linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) and safety Shamarko Thomas (ankle).


Heath Miller only a decent Fantasy play in Week 13


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller is becoming more productive as the season progresses, but other trends indicate that he won't be an ideal option for Fantasy owners on Thursday night.

The Ravens haven't given up more than 55 yards to any tight end in the last nine games and have yielded just two scores to players at that position since Week 2. Though one of them was to Miller, he only had two receptions for 17 yards in that game.

Miller has 13 catches for 108 yards in his last two games, so he is certainly a decent play. But, unlike many tight ends in the league, he is not a go-to guy in the red zone. The touchdown against the Ravens was his only one all year.

Fantasy owners can do worse than Miller, who is ranked between 14th and 18th among NFL tight ends this week by the three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers. But more potentially explosive options should be explored.


Heath Miller snags five in defeat of Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller didn't light up the scoreboard Sunday in Cleveland, but he made a few key catches that helped his team dominate time of possession and the Browns.

Miller snagged four passes for 35 yards in the first half and added a 6-yard reception after intermission. He will have little time to prepare for his next game, which will be played Thursday night against AFC North rival Baltimore.


Heath Miller suiting up Sunday against Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller is ready to roll for Sunday in Cleveland. He was probable, but not injured.

Steelers OK on offense with battle against Browns on horizon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) The Steelers are in great shape offensively heading into their clash in Cleveland on Sunday. All players on their Friday injury report on that side of the ball are probable.

Included are tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), guards Fernando Velasco (knee), Kelvin Beachum (hip) and Ramon Foster (ankle) and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (foot).


Heath Miller a decent Fantasy play for Week 12


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) Has the productive Heath Miller returned? That's what Fantasy owners must ask themselves about the Steelers tight end after his productive Week 11 performance against Detroit.

Miller caught a season-high eight passes for 67 yards in the win over the Lions. It was an eye-opener only because he had 10 receptions for 85 yards in his previous four games combined after a strong start to the season.

Week 12 foe Cleveland has been porous near the goal line against opposing tight ends recently, which bodes well for Miller. The Browns have only yielded 21 catches in the last five games to players at that position, but five went for touchdowns. Miller has enjoyed some success against the Browns with five scores in their last 11 meetings.

Miller is ranked between 11th and 14th among NFL tight ends by the three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers. That indicates some confidence in his ability to follow up his performance against Detroit with another strong effort. He is indeed a viable option against the Browns.


Heath Miller emerges as receiving threat


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller emerged as a solid contributor in the passing game Week 12.

Miller caught eight passes for 67 yards. He was targeted 10 times, putting him behind only Antonio Brown. Emmanuel Sanders had to leave the game early due to a foot injury, which may have forced Ben Roethlisberger to focus more on his tight end. Miller was again hurt by Jerricho Cotchery, who caught another touchdown in the red zone. The team also threw a 1 yard touchdown pass to fullback Will Johnson. 

Miller will look to find the end zone Week 12 against the Browns.


Heath Miller active Week 11 against Lions


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Steelers TE Heath Miller is active Week 11 against the Lions.

Miller was considered probable heading into the week. Miller was on the injury report, but his presence was not injury related. He should be able to go against Detroit. 


Steelers release injury report with mostly probables


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) The Steelers list 10 players on their Friday injury report, but six are probable. The only player ruled out for the Sunday game against Detroit is safety Shamarko Thomas (ankle).

Designated as doubtful is linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf) while defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) and guard Ramon Foster (ankle) are questionable.

Five of the probables are offensive linemen. They are Fernando Velasco (knee), Marcus Gilbert (ankle), David DeCastro (ankle), Kelvin Beachum (hip) and Mike Adams (ribs). Tight end Heath Miller (not injury related) is also probable.


Heath Miller facing tough opponent Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Steelers tight end Heath Miller could be in for a tough game Week 11 against the Lions.

The Lions have performed well against tight ends, limiting them to just 5.67 Fantasy points per game. The team actually allows 5.78 receptions and 57.33 yards per game to tight ends, which is actually high, but has done a great job keeping them out of the end zone. Through nine game Tyler Eifert is the only tight end who has scored against Pittsburgh.

That doesn't bode well for Miller. Miller hasn't been a consistent target in the pass game since his return. Lately, he's been pushed aside for Jerricho Cotchery. In the past four games, Miller has 10 receptions and one touchdown. Cotchery has become the team's main red zone target over that period, catching four touchdowns. Miller hasn't been a strong play all season, and should continue to be seen as such against Detroit.
