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.
May 6 - 4:17 PM

The Steelers planned to draft Maxx Williams at No. 56 overall before the Ravens traded ahead of them to select Williams at No. 55.

Baltimore surrendered a fifth-round pick and No. 58 to get to 55. The Steelers' interest in Williams strongly indicates GM Kevin Colbert is seeking a long-term successor to Heath Miller, who turns 33 this season. Pittsburgh's ultimate inability to land Williams ensures Miller's role is secure for 2015.
May 2 - 12:47 AM

Heath Miller caught six passes for 76 yards in the Steelers' Wild Card win over the Ravens.

Miller got the majority of his targets on check downs from Ben Roethlisberger. He managed a 30-yard catch on a broken play in the first half. Miller posted a 66/761/3 line this season. He's signed at a $4 million base salary through 2016.
Jan 4 - 1:05 AM

Heath Miller had three catches for 41 yards in Week 17 against the Bengals.

He was targeted seven times, behind only Antonio Brown. Miller was held out of the end-zone for the third straight week and couldn't come down with a red-zone look in the second quarter. He finishes the season with a 66/761/3 line. The Steelers play the Ravens in the first round of the playoffs.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 12:50:00 AM

Heath Miller caught 7-of-8 targets for 68 yards in the Steelers' Week 16 win over the Chiefs.

The seven-catch effort was Miller's fourth of the season. Miller has been up and down this year, but enters Week 17 the owner of a Miller-esque 63/720/3 receiving line. Now 32, Miller is signed through 2016.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 05:20:00 PM

Heath Miller caught four passes for 68 yards in the Steelers' Week 15 win over the Falcons.

He was targeted five times, tied for third-most on the team behind Antonio Brown (10) and Le'Veon Bell (7). Miller's biggest grab of the day was a 25-yard pickup late in the fourth quarter that sealed the seven-point win and allowed the Steelers to drain the clock with three kneel-downs. Miller will be a borderline TE1/2 next week at home against the Chiefs. He faces weekly volume uncertainty.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 04:50:00 PM

Heath Miller caught one pass for a 1-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 win at Cincy.

Early in the second quarter, Le'Veon Bell was tackled at the 1-inch line. On the very next play, Ben Roethlisberger executed a play-action fake that Emmanuel Lamur bit on and Miller was wide open for the score. Miller added a two-point conversion later giving himself a nice fantasy day, but his usage is extremely erratic in this Todd Haley scheme. Miller has been at three targets or less in three of the last five games. He's a borderline TE1 heading into Sunday's Week 15 game at Atlanta.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 05:29:00 PM

Heath Miller caught eight passes for 82 yards in the Steelers' Week 13 loss to the Saints.

Miller was targeted on a team-high 14 of Ben Roethlisberger's 58 passes. Ben isn't going to unleash maybe half that amount in a normal week, so leave Miller as a TE1/2. The Steelers racked up a ton of garbage-time yards. Miller will have a plus matchup when the Steelers travel to Cincinnati in Week 14.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 05:19:00 PM

Heath Miller caught five passes for 71 yards in the Steelers' Week 11 win over the Titans.

Miller caught all five of his targets. He was running free down the seams all night with the Titans bringing extra pressure on Ben Roethlisberger. Miller has settled in as a low-end TE2 with the emergence of Martavis Bryant.
Tue, Nov 18, 2014 12:00:00 AM

Heath Miller caught three passes for 29 yards in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Jets.

Miller was held without a catch in the first half. With the Steelers running some no-huddle in garbage-time, he got involved. With less than 30 yards in four of his last five games, Miller is a low-end TE2 going forward.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 05:23:00 PM

Heath Miller caught one pass for 14 yards in Sunday night's win over the Ravens,

He had just two targets. Miller has been inconsistent this year and is behind Martavis Bryant as the Steelers' top red-zone option. He won't be more than a mid-range TE2 for Week 10 against the Jets.
Mon, Nov 3, 2014 01:47:00 AM

Heath Miller caught 7-of-8 targets for 112 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's Week 8 win over the Colts.

Miller's 11-yard score came on 4th-and-inches in the fourth quarter, and salted away a 51-34 victory. Finally finding some space, Miller nearly ripped off a 53-yard touchdown in the third, but got dragged down at the four-yard line. The 100-yard effort was Miller's first of the season. With the year now at its halfway point, Miller is on pace for 68/774/4 despite an up-and-down two months. His upside doesn't appear to be what it once was, but he's still a plug-and-play TE1.
Sun, Oct 26, 2014 09:19:00 PM

Heath Miller caught his lone target for 13 yards in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Texans.

Once propped up as a candidate to bounce back into the TE1 conversation, Miller has comfortably settled in as a low-upside TE2. He's averaging just three targets per game the past three weeks and only has one score on the season. Miller isn't being used in the red zone as much as we expected entering the year.
Tue, Oct 21, 2014 12:36:00 AM

Heath Miller caught 2-of-4 targets for 19 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 6 loss to the Browns.

The two catches were Miller's fewest of the season, while he's now scored in just 1-of-6 games. Miller is on pace for a reasonable 69 catches and 699 yards, but he's getting harder to sell as a TE1. The Steelers need to involve Miller more in the red zone, where they've been abysmal all season.
