Heath Miller is a 10th year veteran who suffered a horrific injury in week 16 of the 2012 season. Prior to the injury, he led the team in receptions with 71 and was named the team's MVP as well as to the Pro Bowl. On March 5, 2014, he signed a 3 year contract extension. (Source: Steelers.com)
Fantasy Impact: The contract extension could be interpreted that the Steelers have faith in the wily vet and he is completely healed from the injury. He could be counted on to take some of the pressure off Antonio Brown in the passing game and has the history and pedigree to show that he can handle it. Current ADP per Fantasy Pros shows he is ranked as the 16th TE (162nd player) off the board. Miller could be in line for a bounce back season and could be a steal based on his current ADP.
Big Ben loves his tight end Heath Miller. He spotlights Miller in key situations throughout each game. While he may not get the touchdown totals that top tight ends get, he does get consistent yardage totals and receptions per game.
