|Two years removed from his ACL injury, Miller showed he has enough left in the tank to be a fantasy asset, as he finished as a fringe TE1 in most fantasy leagues. He flashed some of the crafty athleticism and solid fundamentals of yesteryear as he had monster games in Weeks 4, 8, and 13. The problem is these three games made up over 36% of his season’s yardage totals. Despite being one of Big Ben’s favorite targets, there were more than a few games he was a clear afterthought in the game plan. But while his physical skills may have diminished, Miller is still the uncontested starting tight end. Pittsburgh did add mammoth 6’7’’ Jesse James from Penn State in the fifth round, but that won’t do much to cut into Millers playing time this season. Look for Miller to provide much more value to the Steelers offense with redzone and third down consistency, but with a chance at another 90+ targets, Miller should retain just enough value to provide fantasy owners with a low ceiling TE1 option.

|Ben good to go for Colts, per team source. Heath Miller game-time decision but not likely. (Gerry Dulac on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: It sounds like Jesse James will fill-in for Miller on Sunday Night Football against the Colts. James will be a TE2 in a game that should feature DeAngelo Williams and the Steeler outside receivers.
