Zach Miller sticking with Seahawks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2014) The Seahawks have decided to hang on to tight end Zach Miller, per 710sports.com. They will pay the $1 million roster bonus owed him and have signed him to a contract that will keep him in Seattle through at least 2015.

Miller proved to be a scoring threat despite a lack of overall production. His 33 catches in the regular season included five touchdowns. He managed just five catches for 46 yards in three postseason games combined.

LaCanfora reports that Miller is set to cost $7 million against the salary cap if he stays, and Seattle could save $5 million against the cap by letting him go. LaCanfora reports that "seems natural given his limited role in the offense."

Miller had 33 catches for 387 yards and five touchdowns in 2013.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Seahawks could choose to let him loose and promote fellow tight end Luke Willson to the starting job. Willson had 272 yards and one touchdown to Miller's 387 yards and five touchdowns.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Miller, 28, caught 33 passes for 387 yards and five touchdowns in 14 regular-season games.

Also chipping in were wideout Jermaine Kearse, who caught one pass for 25 yards, and leading receiver Golden Tate, who managed just one catch for 13 yards. Tight end Zach Miller snagged one for 11 yards.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Seahawks tight end Zach Miller found the end zone for the fifth time this season in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

Miller caught a wide-open pass from Russell Wilson in the corner of the end zone for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. It was his only catch of the afternoon, as he was targeted three times in a 17-10 defeat.

The Seahawks will end the regular season at home against the Rams on Sunday. Miller had only two grabs for 14 yards in his previous meeting against St. Louis this season.

All five were probable leading up to the game.

Zach Miller gets in limited practice Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Seahawks tight end Zach Miller was able to get through limited practice Thursday.

Miller is dealing with a rib injury, and did not practice Wednesday. If he's able to go Friday, or is upgraded to full practice, that would bode well for his status Sunday. 


Zach Miller has a great Week 16 matchup, but...


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/20/2013) Seahawks tight end Zach Miller couldn't have asked for a better Week 16 matchup. His opponent, the Cardinals, have allowed 14.3 Fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends -- the highest average in the league, by far. However, the warm, fuzzy feeling here is thwarted by Miller's rib injury, which has kept him limited in practice this week.

In his first game against the Cardinals this season, Miller caught five passes for 40 yards and a touchdown. Tight ends have scored 15 touchdowns over 14 games against the Cardinals, who have allowed a tight end to score in all but one of their last six.

If Miller can't go, backup tight end Luke Willson becomes a decent starting option. But exercise caution with these two -- they are far from slam dunk options. Yes, the Cardinals have been terrible against tight ends, but Miller (or Wilson) should still be on the lower end of the top 12-15 options this week. 


Zach Miller misses practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Seahawks tight end Zach Miller (ribs) did not practice Wednesday as the team began preparing to host Arizona on Sunday. He has two catches for 21 yards in the last two games.

QB misses wide open Zach Miller for TD Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Seahawks tight end Zach Miller was held to one catch for 8 yards during a 23-0 win Week 15 at N.Y. Giants. However, he came close to recording his fifth touchdown of the season.

Miller was wide open in the end zone on a 3rd-and-goal play midway through the third quarter. However, quarterback Russell Wilson decided to loft a pass toward the back of the end zone. Miller made a nice one-handed grab, but he could only get one foot down. 

Miller was targeted three times and finished with one catch for a second straight game. The Seahawks are back in action Week 16 vs. Arizona.


Six Seattle players cleared to play Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (shoulder), wide receiver Doug Baldwin (neck), tight end Zach Miller (ribs), linebacker Mike Morgan (knee), cornerback Richard Sherman (feet) and center Max Unger (pectoral) were all cleared to play Week 15 at N.Y. Giants. All six players were listed as probable.

Zach Miller practices, ready for Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Seahawks tight end Zach Miller (ribs) was able to return to full practice Friday, and is officially probable for Week 15 against the Giants.

Rib injury sidelines Zach Miller


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Seahawks tight end Zach Miller, who's caught four touchdown passes this year, did not practice Wednesday due to a rib injury. Seattle visits the Giants on Sunday.

Is favorable matchup enough to start Zach Miller?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Fantasy owners know the situation when it comes to starting Seahawks tight end Zach Miller. He's only worth a look when he has a favorable matchup and can be pretty much left on waivers the rest of the time.

In Week 15 at N.Y. Giants, it could be a time to consider Miller, but only if you are in desperate need of a tight end. The matchup has some sleeper appeal for Miller since tight ends are averaging 10.7 Fantasy points per week in the last three games against New York. Tight ends have totaled three touchdowns in that span.

The Giants were really a good matchup early in the season. Tight ends averaged 12.4 Fantasy points per week through the first five games against the Giants. Unfortunately, tight ends hit a bit of a lull from Week 6-11 against the Giants, totaling six or less points over a five-game stretch.

It's tough to rely on Miller, who has surpassed 10 Fantasy points just three times this season. When he does have a favorable matchup, all you can do is hope he scores a touchdown. Consider Miller a No. 2 Fantasy tight end Week 15.


Seahawks get minor contributions from role players Week 14


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) The Seahawks received minor contributions from several role players during Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

In the running game, Robert Turbin rushed for 12 yards on two carries. In the passing game, Jermaine Kearse had two catches for 15 yards on five targets while Zach Miller was limited to only one grab for a gain of 13 yards. Miller was targeted three times in a 19-17 defeat.

Zach Miller sets season highs Week 13


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) Seahawks tight end Zach Miller led the team with five catches for 86 yards and a touchdown in the rout of New Orleans. He was targeted a team-high eight times.

Miller set season highs in catches and receiving yards while tallying his fourth touchdown this season. He has nine grabs for 155 yards in his last two games.

Miller, who got going early with a 60-yard reception, will look to stay hot Week 14 at San Francisco.


Zach Miller not worth starting Week 13


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2013) Tight end Zach Miller probably wishes the Seahawks didn't go on a bye Week 12. He posted a season-high 69 receiving yards on four catches Week 11, the first time he cleared 50 yards all season.

Despite that performance, Miller is not a recommended play next Monday, Dec. 2 vs. the Saints. He has 22 catches for 248 yards and three touchdowns in nine games. Miller has drawn 13 targets over his last four outings, and now Percy Harvin is about to be turned loose, possibly reducing Miller's role further.

New Orleans gives up 5.6 Fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends, tied for sixth fewest. The Saints have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends in 11 games. Tight ends average 44.2 receiving yards vs. New Orleans.

With no teams on bye Week 13, you can find a better option than Miller.


Zach Miller leads team in receiving Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Seahawks tight end Zach Miller enjoyed a solid performance as he led the way in receiving Sunday against the Vikings in Week 11.

Miller was held without a grab in the opening quarter and made his first catch count for 34 yards in the second quarter. He was targeted five times and finished the game with four catches for 69 yards in a 41-20 victory.

Miller and the Seahawks will get a bye week before returning to action in Week 13 against the Saints.

Zach Miller not worth the trouble Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Seahawks tight end Zach Miller will be seeking a bounce-back performance during Sunday's contest against the Vikings in Week 11.

Miller endured his worst game of the season, as he played in 56 of the team's 69 snaps and was not targeted in Week 10 against the Falcons. He has just five catches for 63 yards through his last three games, after scoring three times through the first five games.

Miller will play a Minnesota defense that has allowed a tight end to score three times over the last two games. Opposing tight ends have scored 10.78 Fantasy points per game against the Vikings, which is the third most points allowed this season. Still, it will take plenty of guts to place Miller in your starting lineup, even with a favorable matchup. Consider him a low-end option in most formats for Week 11.
