Heath Miller nabbed four of seven targets for 40 yards in the Steelers' Week 10 win over the Browns.
Miller got our attention a few weeks ago with a 100-yard effort against Cincinnati but hasn’t done much since then. He was the targeted receiver on Ben Roethlisberger’s only interception of the game. Miller is a TE2 at best. Nov 15 - 6:03 PM

Heath Miller caught 3-of-6 targets for 32 yards in the Steelers' Week 9 win over the Raiders.

Miller was expected to eat against a defense allowing the most fantasy points to tight ends, but instead had his seventh quiet game in nine 2015 efforts. Especially with Ben Roethlisberger out for Week 10, Miller will be off the TE2 radar against the Browns.
Nov 8 - 6:27 PM

Heath Miller caught 10-of-13 targets for 108 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 8 loss to the Bengals.

The Steelers talked about getting Miller more involved, and they did in the form of his biggest game of the season. Checkdowns to his tight end were about all Ben Roethlisberger could get going in his return from a five-game layoff. Miller was always destined to play a bigger part once the Steelers freed themselves of Mike Vick and Landry Jones, but he'll still be a low-ceiling TE2 in the 12-15 range going forward.
Nov 1 - 6:01 PM

ESPN Steelers reporter Jeremy Fowler reports coaches and players "have spoken openly" about getting Heath Miller more involved in the offense.

Take this with a grain of salt. Miller has not seen more than three targets in a game since Week 1 and was held without a catch last week. He is not a streaming option this week.

Heath Miller (undisclosed) didn't practice Wednesday.

The Steelers haven't provided any details. Miller isn't a Week 8 streaming option after being held without a catch Sunday.
Oct 28 - 4:25 PM

Heath Miller failed to reel in either of his two targets in the Steelers' Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

Miller has primarily served as a sixth offensive lineman since Ben Roethlisberger (knee) went down. Miller could recapture low-end TE1 value with Big Ben tentatively due back in Week 8 against Cincinnati, but obviously won't be winning anyone weeks. The 33-year-old is best viewed as a streamer option.
Oct 25 - 4:35 PM

Heath Miller secured one catch for five yards in the Steelers' Week 6 win over the Cardinals.

The Steelers only attempted 20 passes while the Cardinals dominated the time of the possession on Sunday. A favorite of Ben Roethlisberger, Miller could play a bigger role if Ben returns next week against the Chiefs.
Oct 18 - 5:45 PM

Heath Miller caught all three of his targets for 46 yards in the Steelers' Week 5 win over the Chargers.

His long gain was a 26-yard pickup on Michael Vick's first pass, but Miller's biggest play of the night was a tough-as-nails catch where he got lit up by S Jahleel Addae at the one-yard line with five second to play. Miller held onto the ball with the Steelers down 20-17, and Le'Veon Bell scored the game-winning touchdown on the next play. Miller will be a TE2 next week against the Cardinals.
Oct 13 - 12:54 AM

Heath Miller caught 1-of-2 targets for one yard in Pittsburgh's Week 4 loss to the Ravens.

The Steelers needed Miller to block as Michael Vick attempted only 26 passes in an overtime game. Growing less predictable, Miller will be little more than a low-end TE2 for the duration of Ben Roethlisberger's absence.
Oct 2 - 12:30 AM

Heath Miller caught 2-of-3 targets for 17 yards in the Steelers' Week 3 win over the Rams.

Miller also drew a pass interference penalty that set the Steelers up at the Rams' one-yard line. The most consequential play came in the third quarter, where Ben Roethlisberger suffered a likely-serious knee injury. Miller's production figures to become even more sporadic under backup Michael Vick. Miller isn't a recommended TE1 for Thursday's game against the Ravens.
Sep 27 - 6:08 PM

Heath Miller caught 2-of-2 targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 2 win over the 49ers.

Miller got Pittsburgh an early 6-0 lead by boxing out 49ers SS Antoine Bethea on a red-zone score. Miller added to his box score with a two-point conversion catch in the second quarter. Miller will be a low-end, low-ceiling TE1 when Pittsburgh travels to the Rams' Edward Jones Dome in Week 3.
Sep 20 - 4:24 PM

Heath Miller caught 8-of-11 targets for 84 yards in the Steelers' Week 1 loss to the Patriots.

Heath was the Miller of old this evening, finding the seam any time Ben Roethlisberger needed a chain-moving catch. Miller is one month shy of his 33rd birthday, but like Jason Witten, he just keeps on chugging. Miller will be a mid-range TE1 for the remainder of Martavis Bryant's four-game suspension, but more of a low-end option once Bryant returns.
Sep 11 - 12:17 AM

ESPN Steelers reporter Jeremy Fowler expects Heath Miller to be used more in the passing game with Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant suspended.

Fowler expects Miller to be targeted "fairly often" against the Patriots on Thursday night. Miller saw seven or more targets in six games last season, but managed to score double-digit fantasy points in just two contests. He could be a high-floor option in PPR leagues, but his upside is limited.

The passing-game role of the Steelers' tight ends has dwindled under OC Todd Haley.

It doesn't help that the Steelers simply lack a dynamic receiver at the position. Heath Miller finished 2014 as a top-12 fantasy scorer, but only had three TDs and rarely helped owners win fantasy weeks. Each of Pittsburgh's top two tight ends -- Miller and Matt Spaeth -- finished 2014 as top-seven run blockers at Pro Football Focus. Expect another humdrum season from Miller.
Jul 30 - 11:17 AM

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert insists he wasn't targeting TE Maxx Williams with the No. 56 overall pick.

If true, the Ravens overpaid to get Williams, sending Arizona a fifth-rounder to move up two spots. Signed through 2016, Heath Miller showed signs of decline as Pittsburgh’s every-down tight end last year but still managed a 66/761/3 line. Miller is owed $11.3 million over the next two seasons. The fact that Colbert drafted a tight end a few rounds later -- Penn State's Jesse James -- at very least confirms Pittsburgh was indeed targeting tight ends.
