Fantasy Impact: Miller is a player that is far more valuable in real life than in fantasy, but this opens the door for interesting size/speed athlete Luke Willson. Neither is fantasy relevant at this time, but Willson earned positive grades in 2013, and was raved about in training camp. Miller can be dropped in the deep 2TE leagues that he's rostered in, and Willson should be on the watch-lists of forward thinking fantasy owners.

Fantasy Impact: Miller would have been a solid play this week going up against a Washington defense who just gave up three touchdowns to Larry Donnell. Look for Luke Willson to slide into the starting role, but should only be considered in deep leagues.
Zach Miller corralled his 1 target for 22 yards in Week 2.
Fantasy Impact: Barring an unforeseen shift in offensive philosophy, Zach Miller has 0 fantasy value, he just simply does not receive enough volume in the Seahawks run-heavy offense. Miller is a player that has much more value in the real game, than the fantasy version.
Zach Miller hauled in 3 of his 4 targets for 42 yards. He did not record a touchdown.
Fantasy Impact: Miller was Seattles 3rd most targeted option in the passing game, but there simply were not enough non-Harvin targets to go around. Miller is a better real life football option than in fantasy, where he is a low end TE2 option.
