Heath Miller, TE, N/A
2015 Outlook: Quality BackupLast updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Miller will return to the starting lineup after missing last week's game with a rib issue. He only has one TD in 2015 and one game of value (10/105), which came against the Bengals. He is averaging only 5.1 targets per game. Cinci is 19th in the league in TE Fantasy defense, with two teams scoring over 20 Fantasy points. The Bengals will allow plenty of catches (74) and yards (759) to TEs, but they haven't allowed a TD to the TE position in 2015.
Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Miller was knocked out of last week's game with a rib issue. He was on the field for 30 of 95 plays at the TE position. He has yet to practice this week so he probably won't play this week.
Miller had a solid season in 2014 and was a top-12 fantasy TE. He finished with 66 catches for 761 yards and three TDs, marking the third-most productive season of his career. A big part of his success was his high catch rate (72.5 in 2014, 71.5 for his career). Heath tends to be Roethlisberger's safety value, and the team's talent at RB and WR creates a bigger window for him to catch passes. Miller has had only one season with more than 100 targets and has 43 TDs in 152 career games. This year, he will remain the Steelers' third-best target in catches and continue to have some value at the goal line. Pittsburgh will throw the ball enough that Heath has an opportunity to be a top-10 fantasy tight end if he scores a little more often. However, this 10-year vet will start the season at age 32.
